Recently, a visitor to DORway wrote to me and asked (quite irately), “Do you honestly think that the Food and Drug Administration would allow a dangerous substance to be put in food over the last 30 years without absolute proof that it is HARMLESS?”
Forget aspartame for the moment; ever hear of cigarettes? Those are FDA approved, too. Incidentally, the FDA initially BANNED aspartame – for causing tumors in rats. The history of its approval is shady, and we, at DORway believe the public has the right to know. It’s always really astounded me how annoyed pro-aspartame people get with the simple presentation of information.
DORway has, literally, hundreds of articles written by doctors and links to studies, but because the site is so expansive, I realize it’s difficult to wade through so much info. So for those of you looking for more information, and don’t know where to start, check out the following links:
A list of the most recent aspartame studies NOT conducted by the manufacturer. Many of them are done overseas, you’ll notice. Maybe because they don’t cave to the pressures of U.S. lobbyists representing multibillion dollar corporations and aren’t afraid they’ll lose grant money.
Photocopy of official list of 92 symptoms submitted by YOU the consumer to the FDA.
Photocopy of the original FDA report linking aspartame with cancer, with foreword by Betty Martini.
In my father’s words … why he founded DORway. The title, however, saddens me; he passed away in 2003. There is also a guide to DORway – with links from the original site.
There’s so much more … but this is a great start.
