Aspartame's Cancer Producing Mechanism

|

WHY ASPARTAME CONSUMPTION PRODUCES CANCERS SLOWLY OVER TIME

Aspartame, the artificial sweetener made of a combination of two amino acids and methanol, has been found by a recent study on rats, to produce cancers over the lifetime of these laboratory animals. The study was conducted by the European Ramazzini Foundation of Oncology and Environmental Sciences.

Although the European Union's Food Safety Authority in Parma has stated that the study results are inconclusive and should not make us stop taking aspartame, the Scientific Director of the Foundation and primary author of the aspartame study, Dr. Morando Soffritti, M.D., stands by the study's results and announces further studies not only on aspartame but on other widely used sweeteners as well.

As for a possible mechanism on how aspartame promotes the appearance of cancers in those who consume the sweetener, here is a recent article by Beldeu Singh, a Malaysian researcher.

Review by Andrew Saul, PhD

The United States Patent Office delayed issuing a patent on the Wright brothers’ airplane for five years because it broke accepted scientific principles. This is actually true. And so is this: Vitamin B-3, niacin, is scientifically proven to be effective against psychosis, and yet the medical profession has delayed endorsing it. Not for five years, but for fifty.

In 1952, Abram Hoffer, PhD, MD, had just completed his psychiatry residency. What’s more, he had proven, with the very first double-blind, placebo-controlled studies in the history of psychiatry, that vitamin B-3 could cure schizophrenia. You would think that psychiatrists everywhere would have beaten down a path to Saskatchewan to replicate the findings of this young Director of Psychiatric Research and his colleague, Humphrey Osmond, MD.

You’d think so.

Poison pill: A pharma vet tells all

Fortune Magazine

By John Simons, Fortune writer

An interview with Dr. Peter Rost, drug company executive turned whistleblower.

Drug companies have come under scrutiny recently for recruiting former cheerleaders to fill sales jobs and lavishing doctors with "seminars" at exotic resorts. Earlier this month Stanford University became the third major medical school - after Penn and Yale - to ban doctors from accepting gifts from pharma firms. Now one of the industry's own inside men, Dr. Peter Rost, has published a tell-all titled "The Whistleblower: Confessions of a Healthcare Hitman." Rost gave Fortune's John Simons his take on what's broken in Big Pharma and how to fix it.

Does the swag that drug reps give doctors make a difference?

There is never a gift in life that doesn't make you feel that you have to reciprocate. That means there is a stronger push for the doctor to prescribe a rep's drug, not because of scientific proof, but because he is friendly with the sales rep.

As a vice president at Pharmacia, you discovered the company was encouraging the illegal sale of the human growth hormone Genotropin. How did you deal with that?

Panel Pushes for More Drug Safety Aid

WASHINGTON -- Two years after the withdrawal of the painkiller Vioxx, a dysfunctional Food and Drug Administration still can't adequately track the safety of new drugs and respond quickly to problems, a panel of experts said Friday.

The Institute of Medicine said the FDA needs more money, people and power to ensure it maintains focus on the safety of the drugs it regulates throughout the time they are on the market. The agency needs cultural changes, too, to avoid the tensions that can upset the weighing of drugs' risks and benefits, the panel said.

Also needed are labeling and advertising restrictions on newly approved drugs that would stress the uncertainties that remain about their safety, the institute said in "The Future of Drug Safety," a report issued Friday.

Call for US rice ban after GM blunder

The European Commission has confirmed that shipments of US long grain rice contaminated with an illegal GM trait has been sent to four member states - including the UK - despite the fact that it was certified as GM-free.

Friends of the Earth is calling for an immediate suspension of US long grain rice imports and an increase in testing of rice on the market by member states following the clear failure of control measures put in place in Europe. Member states have been informed by the European Commission and asked to trace the contaminated shipments.

Twelve consignments of rice imported from the US through Rotterdam were certified by the rice industry as free of contamination from unauthorised GM rice LL601 and released. They were destined for the UK, Belgium, France and Germany.

(NewsTarget) An extract derived from fresh blackberries may reduce the size and spread of cancerous tumors, according to new research published in the June issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry.

Cell biologist Min Ding and plant physiologist Shiow Wang -- both researchers at the U.S. Agricultural Research Service -- found that the active compound in blackberries is a water-soluble flavonoid called CG3, which is responsible for the fruit's antioxidant power. Diets rich in fruits and vegetables have long been associated with lower incidence of cancer because of the plants' high antioxidant activity, which fights off cancer-promoting free radicals.

A popular treatment for severe acne has been found to produce depressive behaviour in mice.

University of Bath scientists tested Roaccutane after claims it has caused depression and suicide in patients since its introduction in 1982.

Their work, published in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology, is the first to back up these reports with firm scientific evidence.

The drug's maker, Roche, does include a warning about depression in packets.

Without more research it is difficult to say for sure whether the same link applies to people taking the drug
Dr Sarah Bailey

However, the chemical mechanism by which this might happen has never been established.

The Changing Market for Stevia

September 18, 2006

Stevia, also called sweet-leaf or honey-leaf, is a medicinal plant indigenous to South America, where it has been used for centuries to sweeten foods and beverages by the Guarani Indians. An estimated 280 species of stevia now grow wild in North and South America. However, the only species with the sweetening properties that have attracted so much attention to the herb is Stevia rebaudiana.

Despite the challenging regulatory obstacles that stevia products have faced over the past 15 years, sales continue to climb year after year in both the natural and conventional markets. Currently, sales of stevia and medicinal tea with added stevia total $14.4 million in the natural channel, up 32 percent over the prior year. Total dollar sales are lower in the conventional channel, but they have grown nearly twice as much in the same period—63 percent over the prior year to $3.6 million. (Figures are for the current 52 weeks ending July 15, 2006, in SPINSscan Natural and Conventional channels.)

Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum, Founder
Mission Possible International

Aspartame, AKA NutraSweet, Equal, E951 and under numerous other aliases is an addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogen masquerading as an additive. The chemical liberates methyl alcohol, (methanol} the deadliest of the alcohols, commonly known as wood alcohol. It's so toxic a single ounce can kill or blind an adult, and it's a cumulative poison that alters the dopamine system of the brain creating addiction. The methanol, CH4O, loses two hydrogens to become CH2O, formaldehyde, which is next metabolized to create CH2O2, formic acid: fire-ant venom. But that's just the beginning.

Half of aspartame is phenylalanine, which floods the brain, a neurotoxin, lowering the seizure threshold. It depletes serotonin triggering psychiatric and behavioral problems and interacts with all drugs and vaccines. http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_interacts.htm Today our children are medicated instead of educated.

Vitamin D 'slashes cancer risk'

| | Comments (0)

BBC News
Friday, 15 September 2006

Taking vitamin D tablets could substantially reduce the risk of pancreatic cancer, research suggests.

US scientists found taking the tablets cut the risk of a disease, which has a poor prognosis in almost half of cases.

There are more than 3,600 new cases of pancreatic cancer in women and more than 3,500 in men in the UK each year. Surgery is not often effective.

Vitamin D was examined as it previously showed promise in cutting the risk of prostate, breast and colon cancer.

Except for smoking, no environmental factors or dietary factors have been linked to the pancreatic cancer.

But previous studies have suggested that vitamin D might help to block the proliferation of cancer cells.

And pancreas tissue - both normal and cancerous - has been found to contain high levels of an enzyme that converts vitamin D into its active form.
