- A RACKETEER INFLUENCED & CORRUPT ORGANIZATIONS [RICO]complaint
has been filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
The suit charges the defendants with manufacturing and marketing a deadly
neurotoxin unfit for human consumption, while they assured the pubic that
aspartame (also known as NutraSweet/Equal) contaminated products are safe
and healthful, even for children and pregnant women. Present Secretary
of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is mentioned throughout the lawsuit.
- As evidence, an explosive affidavit from a former translator
for the G.D. Searle Co - the developer of aspartame - will be made public
at a National Press Conference on Thursday, September 16 at 11:00 a.m.
at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel, 1230 J Street, Sacramento, California
95814, phone (916) 447-1700.
- For 16 years, the FDA denied approval of aspartame because
of compelling evidence of its contributing to brain tumors and other serious
disabilities. Donald Rumsfeld, present Secretary of Defense in the Bush
Administration, left President Ford's administration as Chief of Staff
to become the CEO of aspartame producer G D Searle Co. in 1981. Shortly
after, Rumsfeld became the CEO, and the day after President Reagan took
office, aspartame was quickly approved by FDA Commissioner Arthur Hayes
over the objections of the FDA's Public Board of Inquiry. Hayes had been
recently appointed by the Reagan Administration. Shortly after aspartame's
approval by the FDA, Hayes joined NutraSweet's public relations firm under
a ten year contract at $1,000 a day.
- Aspartame/NutraSweet was the product of the G. D. Searle
Co. In January 1977, the FDA wrote a 33 page letter to U.S. Justice Department
- Sam Skinner: "We request that your office convene
a Grand Jury investigation into apparent violations of the Federal Food,
Drug and Cosmetic Act." Skinner allowed the Statute of Limitations
- Three FDA Commissioners and eight other officers and
Skinner took jobs in the aspartame industry.
- The Food and Drug Administration once listed 92 adverse
reactions from 10,000 consumer complaints and would send the list to all
inquirers. In 1996 the FDA stopped taking complaints and now denies existence
of the report. Seizures, blindness, sexual dysfunction, obesity, testicular,
mammary and brain tumors and death, plus dozens of other dread diseases
named in the suit arise from the consumption of this neurotoxin.
- Defendant Moser, past CEO of NutraSweet, is cited for
misrepresenting facts to public and commercial users with full knowledge
of the deceptions. The toxin is sold to Bayer, Con Agra Foods, Dannon,
Smucker, Kellogg, Wrigley, PepsiCo, Kraft Foods (Crystal Light), Conopco
(Slim-Fast), Coke, Pfizer, Wal-Mart and Wyeth (to name a few), who use
it in some of their products, including children's vitamins. These entities
are named in other suits now in California Courts.
- Defendant American Diabetes Association's mission is
to care for diabetics. A 35 year ADA member, diabetic specialist H.J.Roberts,
M.D.FACP discovered aspartame can precipitate or aggravate diabetes and
its complications, or simulate the complications (especially neuropathy
and retinopathy). His report, intended for the Annual Scientific Meeting
of the ADA, was rejected for presentation - and even publication of the
abstract (!) - but was then published in another scientific medical journal.
- The seven count indictment includes charges for violation
of California Consumers Legal Remedies Act, Fraud, violations of California
Civil Code §1780-1784 and Injunctive Relief: that Defendants be enjoined
from future use/sale of aspartame.
