The Monsanto Aspartame Plot


By James Donahue


The toxic sweetener Aspartame has been found out and American shoppers are reading labels to avoid prepared foods and soft drinks lased with this substance. But beware, the Monsanto Corporation, which owns the Aspartame patent, has produced a newly patented variation of Aspartame called Neotame.


The worst news here is that the U. S. Food and Drug Administration has given Monsanto a green light to market Neotame and that food processors will not be required to list this produce on food labels.


Notice that at the same time this is going on, there is a movement in Washington to put controls on the amount of sugar being used in processed food, some calling it an addictive substance. This may lead to a special sugar tax and perhaps legislation limiting the amount of sugar food processors can add to those flavored soft drinks, sauces, milk products, prepared meals and canned fruits and vegetables.


Of course the plausible answer to this will be to add Monsanto’s Neotame to our food.


Aspartame has been proven to be an addictive “excitotoxin” that gives consumers a temporary mental jolt by over-stimulating the production of dopamine in the brain. The rush is so extreme that the chemical has been shown to kill brain cells and increase the risk of stroke and heart attack.


This product has been shown to have up to 92 different side effects that mimic diseases. These range from eye and hearing disorders to joint pain, epileptic seizures, itching, anxiety, tremors, depression, asthma, depressed mental development in newborns, severe weight gain, and irreversible brain damage. The list goes on and on.


So why did the FDA roll over for Monsanto and approve the production and sale of a variation of the same chemical ingredients in U. S. food products? Would the fact that in 2009 President Obama appointed Michael Taylor, formerly a vice president for Monsanto, to the position of deputy commissioner for foods at the FDA, give us a clue?


How many other “sold out” FDA operatives do we have hidden within that agency?


Like so many other factions of our federal government, the Food and Drug Administration, an agency originally designed to be a watchdog over the safety of the products Americans consume, appears to be in the pockets of big corporate interests. How can we trust anything the FDA tells us? Most pressing of all, how do we escape the looming onslaught of Monsanto’s deadly new sweetener in the food we buy at the grocery store?
