For the past ______________________ I have been plagued by the following health problems:
(Use this space for generalizations. Use back of letter orother pages for in-depth and supporting information)
I recently learned that aspartame, the packaged sweetening agent calledEqual, NutraSweet, and other names, is in fact a dangerous toxic substance unfitfor human consumption.
After the total elimination of this substance from my diet the symptomslisted above have either disappeared, or are greatly diminished.
According to your MISSION statement, the FDA must:
1. Base regulatory decisions on a strong scientific and analytical base andthe law; and understand, conduct and apply excellent science and research.
2. Be honest, fair and accountable in all of our actions and decisions.
The above stated mission characteristics were not applied to this toxicdrug. I understand that your predecessor, Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes, disregarded thefraudulent nature of test documentation submitted by Searle, and then overruledhis own FDA Board of Inquiry to allow this substance on the open market. TheFDA action of 27 June, 1996, allowing aspartame to be use in everything,including in heated foodstuffs, greatly compounds the gravity of this tragicaction.
Those actions were not in keeping with the stated FDA mission, and weretaken with total disregard to human health and safety.
Aspartame is a Pandora's box of nightmarish effects that strikes men, women,and children with confusing and un-correctable symptoms. It strikes especiallyhard at those who are most diet conscious for they are the ones most prone touse this drug. It is time to end a growing World-Wide epidemic by recognizing aspartame for what it is, a slow-acting poison now in over 7000 foodstuffs inover 90 countries.
As a United States Citizen, one who helps pay your salary and provide youwith facilities, I expect you to perform your duties according to the letter ofthe law and the Food and Drug Administration charter.
To this end, I demandthat aspartame be reclassified as a dangerous toxin, a drug that is unfit forhuman consumption, and be banned from all foodstuffs.
