Het grote industriesprookjes boek - Hoofdstuk Aspartaam


Een vergeten item op mijn site maar zeker de moeite waard is aspartaam. Deze chemische suikervervanger is onderwerp van menig discussie. De industrie vertelt ons wederom dat dit weer zo'n goede en veilige stof is en dus zonder problemen kan worden ingenomen. Als je denkt dat suiker ongezonder is dan moet je dit maar eens gaan lezen. Als extra nadeel is er ook nog het probleem dat light produkten averechts op je eetlust werken. Maar nog altijd geldt, wie niet horen wil.........

Woodrow C Monte, PhD, offers his research with 190 references on aspartame (methanol, formaldehyde, formic acid) toxicity

My name is Woodrow Monte I am a retired professor of Food Science from Arizona State University.  I have been studying Aspartame and Methanol, its major poisonous component, for over 20 years. I published my first scientific article warning of the formaldehyde produced from the consumption of Aspartame in 1984. I have within the last 6 months published additional information which I would like to have your committee consider as you evaluate the dangers of this sweetener. Here is the URL to my website that contains the new articles and all reference material used to generate these reviews.

Aspartaam kan tot degeneratie hersencellen leiden

Volgens wetenschappers van de University van Pretoria en Universiteit van Limpopo kan een hoge inname van aspartaam leiden naar een degeneratie van de hersenen en mentale aandoeningen. Dus opnieuw een studie die laat zien dat aspartaam een ongezonde kant heeft, Brussel en het Voedingscentrum blijven volharden in het verhaal dat aspartaam ongevaarlijk is. Aan u de keuze wie u gelooft. Alles wat er van de markt is gehaald was oorspronkelijk veilig verklaard en geen bedreiging voor onze gezondheid, ik heb mijn keuze al lang gemaakt....

Ultrastructural changes to rabbit fibrin and platelets due to Aspartame

E. Pretorius a; P. Humphries ab aDepartment of Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine, University of Pretoria, South Africa bDepartment of Anatomy, University of Limpopo, Medunsa Campus, Garankuwa, South Africa Abstract The coagulation process, including thrombin, fibrin, as well as platelets, plays an important role in hemostasis, contributing to the general well-being of humans. Fibrin formation and platelet activation are delicate processes that are under the control of many small physiological events. Any one of these many processes may be influenced or changed by external factors, including pharmaceutical or nutritional products, e.g., the sweetener aspartame (L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester). It is known that phenylalanine is present at position P9 and aspartate at position P10 of the a-chain of human fibrinogen, and plays an important role in the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin by the catalyst -thrombin. The authors investigate the effect of aspartame on platelet and fibrin ultrastructure, by using the rabbit animal model and the scanning electron microscope. Animals were exposed to 34 mg/kg of aspartame 26◊ during a 2-month period. Aspartame-exposed fibrin networks appeared denser, with a thick matted fine fiber network covering thick major fibers. Also, the platelet aggregates appeared more granular than the globular control platelet aggregates. The authors conclude by suggesting that aspartame usage may interfere with the coagulation process and might cause delayed fibrin breakup after clot formation. They suggest this, as the fibrin networks from aspartame-exposed rabbits are more complex and dense, due to the netlike appearance of the minor, thin fibers. Aspartame usage should possibly be limited by people on anti-clotting medicine or those with prone to clot formation.

Aspartaam produkten overzicht

Voor de mensen die aspartaam willen vermijden hieronder een handig overzicht samengesteld door Ed Gunneweg

http://www.aspartaam.nl/info/producten.html


Video - De Gevaren van Aspartaam (Zoetstoffen, Suikervrij, E951, Light)

Aspartaam (E951) is een kunstmatige zoetstof, aanwezig in meer dan 6000 producten en wordt dagelijks door miljoenen mensen geconsumeerd. De Voedingsindustrie beweert
dat aspartaam helpt om af te vallen, maar waarom neemt overgewicht (obesitas) dan steeds meer toe? Aspartaam is een zeer zoet gif, verantwoordelijk voor veel gezondheidsproblemen.

Er zijn maar liefst 92 (!) symptomen vastgesteld door het Amerikaanse Ministerie van Gezondheid, naar aanleiding van klachten, ingediend door aspartaam gebruikers. Meer dan 80% van alle klachten die zijn ingediend bij de Amerikaanse Voedsel en Waren Dienst (FDA) zijn klachten over aspartaam.

Video - Aspartaam, hersenkanker & de FDA goedkeuring

>

De goedkeuring van aspartaam door de FDA was de meest omstreden goedkeuring ooit. De goedkeuring werd niet gegeven op basis van gedegen wetenschappelijk onderzoek
maar werd ingegeven door politieke (en financiŽle) belangen.

Aspartaam werd in 1965 'ontdekt' door Searle, een farmaceutisch bedrijf uit Chicago. De FDA keurde aspartaam uiteindelijk goed in 1981, terwijl wetenschappelijk onderzoek
duidelijk aantoonde dat aspartaam hersenkanker veroorzaakte in proefdieren.

De onderzoeken die Searle had gebruikt om de zogenaamde veiligheid van aspartaam aan te tonen waren zeer gebrekkig. Searle gebruikte onwetenschappelijke werkwijzes in
haar labaratoria, vervalste testgegevens en hield cruciale informatie achter tijdens het FDA-goedkeuringsproces.

Omdat aspartaam hersentumoren veroorzaakte in proefdieren, bestaat er ook een kanker risico voor mensen. Kanker neemt toe in westerse landen en de ziekte zal binnenkort doodsoorzaak nummer 1 zijn. Naast de kankerverwekkende eigenschappen, is ook aangetoond dat aspartaam verantwoordelijk is voor vele andere gezondheidsproblemen, neurologische ziektes, migraines en psychologische aandoeningen.

Aspartaam breekt af in drie giftige bestanddelen:

1. Methanol.
Dit is giftige alcohol. Methanol breekt verder af in formaldehyde, een vloeistof gebruikt voor balseming.

2. Phenylalanine.
Deze stof vermindert de hoeveelheid van serotonine in de hersenen, wat weer leidt tot opvliegers, depressies en een vergroting van de eetlust. Aspartaam consumptie is een van de hoofdoorzaken van de huidige obesitas epidemie.

3.Aspartisch zuur.
Dit is een neurologisch gif vergelijkbaar met MSG (E621)

Geloof niet langer in de onwaarheden die verteld worden door de voedingsindustrie en de 'main stream' media. In tegenstelling tot wat de 'gezondheidsexperts' (betaald door de
voedingsindustrie...) zeggen, aspartaam is NIET veilig! Aspartaam is een zoet gif, op de markt gebracht zodat de farmaceutische industrie medicijnen kan verkopen ter
'behandeling' van ziektes die door aspartaam worden veroorzaakt.

Aspartaam zit in de volgende producten:
Light, Zero (Coke, Sprite & Fanta), Pepsi Max, Natrena, Canderel, suikervrij, zoetjes, minder calorieŽn, Sweetners, Sweetener, Sanoform, Slimmetjes, Sussli, Zoetstof, Dietcare, Gold, Hermesetas Gold, Kristalzoet, Line zoet en slank, zoetmiddel, Sanoform, Prodia, Ti light, Fit & Sweet, etc.

Wilt U een betere gezondheid? Doe U zelf dan een plezier en verwijder dit zoete vergif uit uw voeding voor 60 dagen en ontdek hoe enorm uw gezondheid zal verbeteren!

"Mijn volk gaat te gronde door het gebrek aan kennis."
Hosea 4:6 (NBG51)

"Waarom geld uitgeven aan brood dat geen brood is? Waarom moeite doen voor iets dat niet bevredigen kan? Schenk aandacht aan mijn woorden. Eet wat voedzaam is, geniet
ervan, met volle teugen!"

The Great Chemical Dumbing Down

What have aspartame, compulsory schooling, toxic vaccines, fluoridation, watching TV, and multiculturalism all have in common? Dr. Russell blaylock accuses Industry and Government of dumbing down society with Chemical Toxins. The French philosopher Voltaire stated that those who hold the power to make you believe absurdities also have the power to make you commit atrocities. Intelligent people are bad from this point of view, they think too much, such people are exceptionally bad since they do not believe everything they are told. People on the other hand equally lacking in intelligence and understanding have no real choice in that matter, those who can not comprehend need others to comprehend for them.

Opnieuw discussie over aspartaam en verstoring hersenfuncties

Een flinke inname van aspartaam kan volgens een nieuwe studie enzymen blokkeren in de hersenen waardoor deze niet meer normaal kunnen gaan functioneren. Deze conclusie doet opnieuw de discussie mbt aspartaam oplaaien.

http://www.foodnavigator.com/news/ng.asp?n=84424-aspartame-sweetener

Deze zoetstof is ooit in Amerika onder politieke druk door de FDA keuring heengedrukt en overheden nemen nog altijd de kritische studies niet mee in hun mening over deze stof. De industrielobbyisten in Brussel hebben wederom een rookgordijn kunnen plaatsen waardoor politici dom worden gehouden. Dit zie je ook weer goed in Amerika met de hele rel om de stof bisphenol a die vrijkomt uit plastic dat je warm maakt zoals magnetron voeding, koffiebekertjes, babyflesje en drinkflesje (bijv in zonlicht). Ook daar is de overheid misleidt door onderzoekers die gefinancierd zijn door de industrielobby.

 

De studie mbt aspartaam

Excessive intake of aspartame may inhibit the ability of enzymes in the brain to function normally, suggests a new review that could fan the flames of controversy over the sweetener.

Direct and indirect cellular effects of aspartame on the brain.

P Humphries, E Pretorius, H Naudť

The use of the artificial sweetener, aspartame, has long been contemplated and studied by various researchers, and people are concerned about its negative effects. Aspartame is composed of phenylalanine (50%), aspartic acid (40%) and methanol (10%). Phenylalanine plays an important role in neurotransmitter regulation, whereas aspartic acid is also thought to play a role as an excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. Glutamate, asparagines and glutamine are formed from their precursor, aspartic acid. Methanol, which forms 10% of the broken down product, is converted in the body to formate, which can either be excreted or can give rise to formaldehyde, diketopiperazine (a carcinogen) and a number of other highly toxic derivatives. Previously, it has been reported that consumption of aspartame could cause neurological and behavioural disturbances in sensitive individuals. Headaches, insomnia and seizures are also some of the neurological effects that have been encountered, and these may be accredited to changes in regional brain concentrations of catecholamines, which include norepinephrine, epinephrine and dopamine. The aim of this study was to discuss the direct and indirect cellular effects of aspartame on the brain, and we propose that excessive aspartame ingestion might be involved in the pathogenesis of certain mental disorders (DSM-IV-TR 2000) and also in compromised learning and emotional functioning.European Journal of Clinical Nutrition advance online publication, 8 August 2007; doi:10.1038/sj.ejcn.1602866.

Aspartame Special

In a special on the dangers of the artificial sweetener aspartame, Dr. Betty Martini was joined by a panel of experts throughout the evening. Aspartame, which she described as addictive, can cause a number of problems that people might not realize stem from its consumption, including headaches, dizziness, mood change, and joint pain. Its effects can be slow and subtle, but quite serious-- sometimes leading to miscarriages and seizures, she said.

Consumer representative James Turner spoke about the history of aspartame and its pathway to approval. A public inquiry held in 1980 ruled it shouldn't be marketed because of its association with brain tumors, but Donald Rumsfeld (who served as head of the pharmaceutical company G. D. Searle at the time) managed to engineer its approval, he recounted.

Stephen Fox, a consumer advocate, discussed efforts to get aspartame rescinded from the market, and suggested a new FDA commissioner was needed to carry this through. He recommended the documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poison World (available on Google Video).

Psychiatrist Dr. Ralph Walton noted that aspartame is paradoxically associated with obesity, as it increases appetite and cravings for carbohydrates. When interviewed for a 60 Minutes story in 1996 (view here) he pointed out studies which touted its safety were all funded by the industry and independent studies all found problems.

Dr. H.J. Roberts, the author of Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic said the negative effects of the sweetener can be cumulative, especially when combined with other toxins such as fluoride. Martini recommended natural sugar alternatives such as Just Like Sugar and stevia (in its pure form).

Aspartame Cancer Risks Revisited   - Prenatal Exposure May Be Greatest Concern

Although recent epidemiologic studies have not found an association between aspartame and human cancers, those studies were not designed to measure cancer risks associated with fetal exposures. The public health implications of the new findings are considerable. Currently, more than 200 million people regularly consume aspartame, and children and women of childbearing age (which presumably includes many who are pregnant and breastfeeding) are among the major consumers. If the U.S. FDA were to conclude that exposure to aspartame causes cancer in rodents, the agency would be required by law to revoke its approval for the popular sweetener.

Life-Span Exposure to Low Doses of Aspartame Beginning during Prenatal Life Increases Cancer Effects in Rats

The results of this carcinogenicity bioassay confirm and reinforce the first experimental demonstration of APM's multipotential carcinogenicity at a dose level close to the acceptable daily intake for humans. Furthermore, the study demonstrates that when life-span exposure to APM begins during fetal life, its carcinogenic effects are increased.

Low doses of aspartame causes cancer

At New York's Mt Sinai School of Medicine DR. MORANDO SOFFRITTI was honored in April with the Irving J Selikoff Award for Outstanding contributions to the identification of environmental and industrial carcinogens, and his promotion of independent scientific research. The prestigious Selikoff Award is only granted for groundbreaking cancer research. It was created 1993 by the Collegium Ramazzini, an academy of 180 internationally renowned experts in occupational and environmental health from over 30 nations. It has been awarded just twice before being presented to Dr. Soffritti. His research was conducted for 36 months using 1,800 rats. It forced the conclusion that aspartame is a multipotential carcinogen. Cancers aspartame produced included leukemia, lymphoma, kidney, and cranial peripheral nerves among others. Only the rats fed aspartame got malignant brain tumors. This prodigious work was peer reviewed by 7 world experts.

Italiaanse onderzoekers en hun strijd tegen chemische suikers

Onderzoeker Ramazinni die in 2005 aspartaam aan de kaak stelde geeft zijn strijd niet op. Ondanks dat de EU zijn onderzoek van tafel heeft geveegd is de onderzoeker een eigen site begonnen en kijkt kritisch naar dit soort suikers. Interessant daarop is deze brief waarop het onderzoek naar het zoetmiddel Acesulfame Potassium in de jaren zeventig door het Nederlandse bedrijf Hoechst aan de kaak wordt gesteld en oa concludeert dat de gedane testen onvoldoende waren om te kijken naar een mogelijke kankerverwekkend eigenschap en dat bijvoorbeeld de muizen tekort zijn getest (80 ipv 104 weken).

Zoetstof aspartaam verhoogt kankerrisico

De zoetstof aspartaam verhoogt bij ratten het risico op kanker. Zelfs in de kleine hoeveelheden die volgens de Wereldgezondheidsorganisatie (WHO) veilig zijn. Bovendien heeft het gebruik van de zoetstof geen positieve invloed op het lichaamsgewicht.  Dat blijkt uit onderzoek waarvan de resultaten eerder deze maand zijn gepubliceerd in het tijdschrift Environmental Health Perspectives en het blad European Journal of Oncology. 

http://www.refdag.nl/artikel/1240697/


Europa start nieuw onderzoek naar aspartaam

Het Europees agentschap voor de voedselveiligheid onderzoekt de komende maanden de veiligheid van de kunstmatige zoetstof aspartaam. Het agentschap belooft de bevolking regelmatig op de hoogte te houden van de resultaten.

Aspartaam is al langer een omstreden voedingsstof. Er zijn al uitgebreide studies geweest over de veiligheid. Nu zijn nieuwe cijfers bekend, die moeten onderzocht worden. Op basis van experimenten met ratten stelden Italiaanse onderzoekers eind november vast dat aspartaam al kankerverwekkend is bij een dagelijkse dosis van 20 milligram per kilo lichaamsgewicht, terwijl de EU-norm 40 mg/kg bedraagt.

De onderzoekers van het Cesare Maltoni Cancer Research Center in Bologna pleitten voor een herziening van de richtlijnen, ook al is een stof die giftig is voor knaagdieren dat niet altijd ook voor mensen. Aspartaam zit in meer dan zesduizend voedingsproducten, onder meer in softdrinks, kauwgom, desserts en yoghurt, en ook in heel wat lightproducten. Meer dan 200 miljoen mensen gebruiken de kunstmatige zoetstof dagelijks.

Formaline bewezen kankerverwekkend

De Consumentenbond verklaart in een artikel in de Gezondgids van maart 2005 dat formaline officieel geclassificeerd is als zijnde kankervrwekkend voor mensen. Aspartaam bevat methanol dat in ons lichaam wordt omgezet in formaline. Heel veel gebruikers van Light producten krijgen dagelijks hun dosis formaline naar binnen, zodat er gesproken kan worden van een chronische formaline vergiftiging, die uiteindelijk ernstige gezondheidsklachten zal veroorzaken.

Bedenkelijke rol van Rumsfeld in de VS

De toelating van aspartaam in de Verenigde Staten door de Food and Drug Administration verliep niet geheel zonder problemen, aanvankelijk was er een vermoeden dat aspartaam de kans op ontstaan van hersentumoren bij laboratoriumratten vergrootte. Pas na interventie van Donald Rumsfeld werd aspartaam toegelaten. Bij later uitgebreid onderzoek is echter geen verband onomstotelijk aangetoond, en werd aspartaam ook in de Verenigde Staten toegelaten voor menselijke consumptie. Hierdoor is aspartaam ťťn van de meest geteste stoffen die ooit door de FDA zijn toegelaten.

Aspartaam in Wonderland - door Dennis Rodie

Het zoveelste onafhankelijke onderzoek naar de gevaren van het zoetmiddel aspartaam heeft wederom negatieve resultaten gebracht.

Het Italiaanse Ramazzini Instituut heeft een langdurig wetenschappelijk onderzoek uitgevoerd waaruit bleek dat er een link bestaat tussen leukemie en aspartaam, zelfs bij hoeveelheden die onder de "aanvaardbare dagelijkse inname" (ADI) liggen. Hoe komt het dat eerdere onderzoeken dat nooit hebben laten zien? Het Ramazzini onderzoek liet hun ratten leven totdat ze zelf doodgingen en werden toen onderzocht op onder andere tumoren. Dat was nog niet eerder gedaan.

Hoe komt het toch dat vrijwel al het onafhankelijke onderzoek negatieve resultaten laat zien terwijl het industriŽle onderzoek geen vuiltje aan de lucht ziet?

Skepter dacht in de zomer van 2004 de hetze tegen aspartaam even voorgoed stop te zetten en concludeerde arrogant dat aspartaam van alle zoetjes verreweg de veiligste was. Kleintje Muurkrant en ik kwamen tot tegenovergestelde conclusies. Marie Prins, de schrijfster van het Skepter-artikel noemde mij zelfs een "fervente bestrijder van aspartaam", zonder overigens inhoudelijk op mijn artikel in te gaan.

Combining food additives may be harmful, say researchers

∑ Aspartame and artificial colourings investigated
∑ Mice nerve cells stopped growing in experiments

New research on common food additives, including the controversial sweetener aspartame and food colourings, suggests they may interact to interfere with the development of the nervous system.
Researchers at the University of Liverpool examined the toxic effects on nerve cells in the laboratory of using a combination of four common food additives - aspartame, monosodium glutamate (MSG) and the artificial colourings brilliant blue and quinoline yellow. The findings of their two-year study were published last week in the journal Toxicological Sciences.

The Liverpool team reported that when mouse nerve cells were exposed to MSG and brilliant blue or aspartame and quinoline yellow in laboratory conditions, combined in concentrations that theoretically reflect the compound that enters the bloodstream after a typical children's snack and drink, the additives stopped the nerve cells growing and interfered with proper signalling systems.

Artificial sweeteners linked to weight gain

Cutting the connection between sweets and calories may confuse the body, making it harder to regulate intake

WASHINGTON — Want to lose weight? It might help to pour that diet soda down the drain. Researchers have laboratory evidence that the widespread use of no-calorie sweeteners may actually make it harder for people to control their intake and body weight. The findings appear in the February issue of Behavioral Neuroscience, which is published by the American Psychological Association (APA).

Psychologists at Purdue University’s Ingestive Behavior Research Center reported that relative to rats that ate yogurt sweetened with glucose (a simple sugar with 15 calories/teaspoon, the same as table sugar), rats given yogurt sweetened with zero-calorie saccharin later consumed more calories, gained more weight, put on more body fat, and didn’t make up for it by cutting back later, all at levels of statistical significance. Authors Susan Swithers, PhD, and Terry Davidson, PhD, surmised that by breaking the connection between a sweet sensation and high-calorie food, the use of saccharin changes the body’s ability to regulate intake. That change depends on experience. Problems with self-regulation might explain in part why obesity has risen in parallel with the use of artificial sweeteners. It also might explain why, says Swithers, scientific consensus on human use of artificial sweeteners is inconclusive, with various studies finding evidence of weight loss, weight gain or little effect. Because people may have different experiences with artificial and natural sweeteners, human studies that don’t take into account prior consumption may produce a variety of outcomes.

Three different experiments explored whether saccharin changed lab animals’ ability to regulate their intake, using different assessments –the most obvious being caloric intake, weight gain, and compensating by cutting back.  The experimenters also measured changes in core body temperature, a physiological assessment. Normally when we prepare to eat, the metabolic engine revs up. However, rats that had been trained to respond using saccharin (which broke the link between sweetness and calories), relative to rats trained on glucose, showed a smaller rise in core body temperate after eating a novel, sweet-tasting, high-calorie meal. The authors think this blunted response both led to overeating and made it harder to burn off sweet-tasting calories.

“The data clearly indicate that consuming a food sweetened with no-calorie saccharin can lead to greater body-weight gain and adiposity than would consuming the same food sweetened with a higher-calorie sugar,” the authors wrote. The authors acknowledge that this outcome may seem counterintuitive and might not come as welcome news to human clinical researchers and health-care practitioners, who have long recommended low- or no-calorie sweeteners. What’s more, the data come from rats, not humans. However, they noted that their findings match emerging evidence that people who drink more diet drinks are at higher risk for obesity and metabolic syndrome, a collection of medical problems such as abdominal fat, high blood pressure and insulin resistance that put people at risk for heart disease and diabetes. Why would a sugar substitute backfire? Swithers and Davidson wrote that sweet foods provide a “salient orosensory stimulus” that strongly predicts someone is about to take in a lot of calories. Ingestive and digestive reflexes gear up for that intake but when false sweetness isn’t followed by lots of calories, the system gets confused. Thus, people may eat more or expend less energy than they otherwise would.

The good news, Swithers says, is that people can still count calories to regulate intake and body weight. However, she sympathizes with the dieter’s lament that counting calories requires more conscious effort than consuming low-calorie foods. Swithers adds that based on the lab’s hypothesis, other artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, sucralose and acesulfame K, which also taste sweet but do not predict the delivery of calories, could have similar effects. Finally, although the results are consistent with the idea that humans would show similar effects, human study is required for further demonstration.


Campaign to outlaw sweetener in schools

Food Safety campaigners are calling for a ban on diet drinks and other artificially sweetened products in schools after a Wellington woman said she was poisoned by sugar-free chewing gum.

Aspartame's Safety Questioned Again

The researchers cautioned that pregnant moms that consumed aspartame appeared to pass on the cancer risk to fetuses, with the vulnerability of fetuses being such that exposure in womb seemed to add to cancer risk later in life. The researchers noted that that parallels the human experience.

Two New Studies on Aspartame and Diet Drinks Confirm Source of Obesity, Cancer/Malignant Brain Tumor Epidemics

THE Cancer Research Center of the European Foundation of Oncology and Environmental Sciences in Bologna, Italy reported this week that a long-term study to evaluate the potential carcinogenic effects of aspartame demonstrates the chemical sweetener "induces an increase in lymphomas and leukemia in female rats." The research will be presented at a September international scientific conference, "Framing the Future in the Light of the Past: Living in a Chemical World."

Do the Makers of Splenda Know Something They Aren't Telling You?

If Johnson & Johnson, the U.S. manufacturer of Splenda, believed Splenda was safe why would they own the domain name www.SplendaIsNotSafe.com?

And that's only one of many names Johnson & Johnson and Tate & Lyle has tied up that incorporate the words victims, poison, kills and dangers with Splenda.

Study Linking Aspartame to Cancer

The mission of the European Foundation of Oncology and Environmental Sciences "B. Ramazzini" is to prevent cancer by identifying its causes and studying new strategies for early diagnosis and intensive therapies.

The European Ramazzini Foundation is a non-profit, private institution with official governmental recognition. Located in Bentivoglio, in the province of Bologna, Italy, its facilities include a Cancer Research Center (CRC) with more than 10,000 square meters of laboratories and archives and an Epidemiological Research Center. The researchers of the European Ramazzini Foundation have worked in environmental health sciences, oncology and toxicology for more than 25 years.

CRC/ERF

Results of study on the carcinogenicity of the artificial sweetener aspartame

Summary. A long-term study to evaluate the potential carcinogenic effects of aspartame, an artificial sweetener used in more than 6,000 food and pharmaceutical products has recently been completed in the experimental laboratories of its Cancer Research Center of the European Foundation of Oncology and Environmental Sciences "B. Ramazzini" in Bologna, Italy. The first results of the experiment were reported to the Ministry of Health and to the Superior Institute of Health of the Italian government in April 2005. In mid-June, these findings were then communicated to the European Food Safety Authority, the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center of Columbia University, the National Cancer Institute of the US government, and the National Toxicology Program of the US National Institutes of Health. First results demonstrate that aspartame, when administered to rats for the entire life span, induces an increase of lymphomas and leukemias in female rats. The study is currently being published in the European Journal of Oncology (available at: www.ramazzini.it/fondazione/docs/AspartameGEO2005.pdf) and final results will be presented at the 3rd international scientific conference of the Collegium Ramazzini, "Framing the Future in Light of the Past: Living in a Chemical World", to be held in Bologna, Italy from September 18-21, 2005, the proceedings of which will be published in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences.

Communication. Aspartame is an artificial sweetener consumed by hundreds of millions of people worldwide. It is used in over 6,000 diet products including soft drinks, chewing gum, candy, desserts, yogurt as well as in pharmaceuticals, in particular, syrups and antibiotics for children.

The average daily intake of aspartame is calculated to be about 2-3 mg/Kg of body weight, a figure which increases for children and women of childbearing age. Current daily intake allowed by regulatory bodies is 50 mg/Kg of body weight in the US and 40 mg/Kg of body weight the European Union.

Prior to the commercialization of aspartame in the 1970s, the manufacturers of the compound conducted various experimental studies on rats and mice to test its carcinogenicity. When taken together, the results of these studies were considered negative with regard to the carcinogenicity of aspartame. Doubts were however raised by some in the scientific community about the conduct of the experiments and the fact that some cases of malignant brain tumors were found among animals treated with aspartame while none were found among the control group. Given the limitations of these studies and the ever growing use of aspartame throughout the years, the European Ramazzini Foundation decided in the late 1990s to plan and perform an experiment that would, based on the total number of animals used, the number of dose levels studied, and the conduct of the experiment according to Good Laboratory Practices, provide an adequate evaluation of the potential carcinogenic effects of aspartame.

The CRC/ERF study was conducted on 1800 rats (900 males, 900 females) of the colony used for over 30 years by the Foundation. In order to simulate daily human intake, aspartame was added to the standard rat diet in quantities of 5000, 2500, 100, 500, 20, 4, and 0 mg/Kg of body weight. Treatment of the animals began at 8 weeks of age and continued until spontaneous death. A complete necropsy and histopathological evaluation of tissues and organs was then performed on each deceased animal, for a total of over 30,000 slides examined by microscope.

The first results of the experiment show:

1) a dose-related statistically significant increase of lymphomas and leukemias in female rats. This statistically significant increase was also observed at a dose level of 20 mg/Kg of body weight, a dose inferior to the accepted daily intake permitted by current regulations (50-40 mg/Kg of body weight);

2) that the addition of aspartame to the diet induces a dose-related reduction in food consumption, without however causing a difference in body weight between treated and untreated animals.

The above results demonstrate for the first time that aspartame is a carcinogenic agent, capable of inducing lymphomas and leukemias in female rats, including when administered at dose levels very close to the acceptable daily intake for humans. In addition, the data demonstrate that the integration of aspartame into the diet did not affect the body weight of treated animals compared with untreated animals.

As recognized by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization, results of long-term bioassays conducted on rodents (rats and mice) are highly predictive of carcinogenic risk for humans. In light of this fact, the results of the CRC/ERF study on aspartame call for urgent reconsideration of regulations governing its use as an artificial sweetener in order to better protect public health, in particular that of children.

Aspartame Study From Spain

The Trocho study is a general study on artificial sweeteners' toxicity supported through the Bosch & Gimpera Foundation, Barcelona, Spain.

The researchers determined the extent of conversion of aspartame methanol to formaldehyde and its eventual effect on the overall physiologic function of the rat. The results suggest that the conversion of aspartame methanol into formaldehyde adducts (The complex that forms when a chemical binds to a biological molecule, such as DNA or a protein.) should to be taken into account because of the widespread utilization of this sweetener. The study concluded that aspartame consumption may constitute a hazard because of its contribution to the formation of formaldehyde adducts.

MP calls for ban on 'unsafe' sweetener

Felicity Lawrence, consumer affairs correspondent
Thursday December 15, 2005
The Guardian

A member of the parliamentary select committee on food and the environment yesterday called for emergency action to ban the artificial sweetener aspartame, used in 6,000 food, drink and medicinal products.

The Liberal Democrat MP Roger Williams said in an adjournment debate in the Commons that there was "compelling and reliable evidence for this carcinogenic substance to be banned from the UK food and drinks market altogether". In licensing aspartame for use, regulators around the world had failed in their main task of protecting the public, he told MPs.

The Tsakiris Aspartame Study

Greece 2005

For more than 25 years, the FDA and the manufacturers of aspartame have claimed all of the adverse symptoms reported to aspartame use are "anecdotal." (In other words, if a person claims their health problems are related to aspartame, but laboratory studies don't confirm this, then the person's reaction to aspartame is disregarded.) People may not experience noticeable illness from short-term use of aspartame, and this has many times been interpreted as proof that there is no problem with its safety. Unfortunately, this position ignores the fact that the effects of aspartame poisoning are cumulative.

Studies beginning in the late 1960s have shown aspartame creates neurological problems1. People need to know aspartame is currently being studied, and the results are showing multiple forms of cancer and nerve disorders.

An Aspartame Detoxification Program

An Aspartame Detoxification Program: Ten Steps To Prevent The Sugar-Free Diet Craze From Destroying Your Health

How would you feel if you were dying and no one knew why? In 1991, I lay alone in a hospital bed dying of a fatal disease. My husband never came to see me, but I wanted him to. I hoped my three toddlers would never see me so sick and dying. Facing death alone at 35 years of age, I could get no answers from my doctors why I was suddenly dying. They had no clue why my heart rate was soaring at 180 beats at rest. They had no idea what was killing me.

So, headaches got you down - again - you say? Maybe it's a migraine this time, yet you never had a migraine before now. Have seizures become a recurring problem lately? Are you frustrated because you never had seizures before either, and your doctor can find no cause for this sudden life-threatening condition? Have you recently been diagnosed with Lupus, Graves' Disease, MS, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or diabetes? Or maybe your children are showing signs of ADD/ADHD, yet never had a behavior problem before you started using sugar-free children's chewable vitamins or food products containing aspartame.

How do sweeteners affect the pancreas?

A. They can have direct and indirect effects. One result, of course, is the secretion of insulin. When humans take something that is sweet, the body infers that sugar is being ingested. In anticipation of its arrival, the pancreas reflexively releases insulin. This is one way in which aspartame affects the pancreas. It can also cause considerable stimulation of the exocrine part of the pancreas that involves the pancreatic juices. This may even produce pancreatitis--inflammation of the pancreas--which in the process might disturb the islet cells.

There is an enormous reserve of pancreatic juices. At least 60 percent or more of the pancreas would have to be destroyed before interfering with pancreatic function would occur. One way to stimulate the pancreas to produce its secretions is to give amino acids, including phenylalanine, with or without another amino acid.

In my experience, aspartame products have produced clinical pancreatitis. To my knowledge, neither the long-term effects to the secretory pancreas nor the relationship to the subsequent overstimulation of the pancreas, in terms of tumors, has been studied.

Aspartic Acid

Dr. Russell L. Blaylock, a professor of neurosurgery at the Medical University of Mississippi, recently published a book thoroughly detailing the damage that is caused by the ingestion of excessive aspartic acid from aspartame. Blaylock makes use of almost 500 scientific references to show how excess free excitatory amino acids such as aspartic acid and glutamic acid (about 99 percent of monosodium glutamate (MSG) is glutamic acid) in our food supply are causing serious chronic neurological disorders and a myriad of other acute symptoms.

Aspartame and Breast and Prostate Cancer

I discovered an extraordinary correlation between aspartame (marketed as Nutrasweet and in its generic form) and increasing breast and prostate cancer incidence. My observation occurred while I was researching the metabolism of aspartame. Aspartame consists of phenylalanine, aspartic acid and methanol (wood alcohol). Upon metabolism, Nutrasweet breaks down into aspartic acid, a neuroexcitatory agent, phenylalanine, an amino acid, and methanol. The methanol is converted to formaldehyde, which then accumulates within the cells. Formaldehyde has been considered an inducer of cancer 4 and acts to alter DNA.
