US Recall News Disclosure Statement:
This is a press release from the Aspartame Consumer Safety Network.
Authors of a major study published this week in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association, found that one or more sodas per day increases risk of new-onset metabolic syndrome (a cluster of factors that boosts the chance of having a heart attack or stroke and developing diabetes) by about 45 per cent. “It did not seem to matter if the soda was regular or diet,” Dr. Ramachandran Vasan, senior investigator for the Framingham Heart Study, said Monday from Boston.
Aspartame Consumer Safety Network, a U.S. consumer group, with international affiliations, has published information for over two decades, supporting the findings of the Boston researchers. The group’s files contain thousands of adverse reactions to the artificial sweetener, aspartame (aka NutraSweet, Equal, Canderel). Aspartame in diet sodas, breaks down into: phenylalanine, methanol, aspartic acid, formaldehyde, formic acid and diketopiperazine, a brain tumor agent. In independent testing, aspartame caused brain tumors, breast tumors, grand mal seizures, pancreatic tumors, uterine tumors, leukemia and lymphoma, ACSN’s pilot hotline has logged close to one thousand pilot related calls regarding pilot’s adverse reactions to the sweetener.
Many prominent researchers and doctors, such as the late Dr. Robert Atkins concur with the network’s findings. Food and Drug Administration toxicologist, Dr. Jerome Bressler discovered unreported heart and other life threatening problems in the laboratory animals, showing how the original drug company tests could have been ‘falsified’ to gain approval for the sweetener.
Public figures, with histories of serious heart problems, who are also reported to be daily consumers of diet sodas include: President Bill Clinton (Diet Coke),Vice President, Dick Cheney (caffeine-free Diet Sprite) and television personality, Regis Philbin (Diet Coke).
Turner and Stoddard are campaigning for an aspartame recall, based on the latest research and dozens of independent scientific studies showing aspartame can not be regarded as “safe.”
