New Research Links Nutrasweet to Leukemia and Lymphoma
July 14, 2009
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) announced in April that, “there is no indication of any genotoxic or carcinogenic potential of aspartame.” But in fact, aspartame is an addictive, excitoneurotoxic, genetically engineered carcinogen.
In 2005, a rigorous three year study on 1,800 rats concluded that aspartame causes significant increases in lymphoma and leukemia and is a multi-potential carcinogen. EFSA invented “deficiencies” in the study. But a second study entirely verified the first one. Dr. Morando Soffritti, who led both projects, noted that so much formaldehyde developed in aspartame-exposed rats that their skin turned yellow.
The U.S. FDA approved aspartame as a synthetic sweetener in 1981. However, studies given to the FDA by the manufacturer hid the fact the poison caused tumors in lab rats.
