A REAL PEOPLE PERSON VOL. 1
Donald Rumsfeld was CEO of Searle, a conglomerate that manufactured aspartame. For sixteen years the FDA refused to approve it, not only because it's not safe but because they wanted the company indicted for fraud. Both U.S. prosecutors hired on with the defense team and the statute of limitations expired. They were Sam Skinner and William Conlon. Skinner went on to become secretary of transportation, squelching the cries of the people who were now having seizures on this seizure triggering drug, aspartame, and then chief of staff under President Bush's father. Some of these people reached high places. Even Supreme Justice Clarence Thomas is a former Monsanto attorney. Monsanto bought Searle in 1985, and sold it a few years ago. When John Ashcroft became attorney general in 2001, Larry Thompson from King and Spalding Attorneys which was another former Monsanto attorney became deputy under Ashcroft. However, the FDA still refused to allow NutraSweet on the market. It is a deadly neurotoxic drug masquerading as an additive. It interacts with all antidepressants, L-dopa, Coumadin, hormones, insulin, all cardiac medication, and many others. It also is a chemical hypersensitization drug, so it interacts with vaccines, other toxins, other unsafe sweeteners, like Splenda that has a chlorinated base like DDT and can cause autoimmune disease. It has a syenergistic and additive effect with MSG. Both being excitotoxins, the aspartic acid aspartame, and MSG, the glutamate, people were found using aspartame as the placebo for MSG studies, even before it was approved. The FDA has known this for a quarter of a century and done nothing even though it's against the law. Searle went on to build a Nutrasweet factory and had $9 million worth of inventory. Donald Rumsfeld was on President Reagan's transition team and the day after Reagan took office he appointed an FDA commissioner who could and would approve aspartame.
