L'Etat du Nouveau Mexique envisage de banir l'Aspartame !
lu dans The Idaho Observer
SANTA FE, New Mexico -- The Environmental Improvement Board (EIB) voted 4-2 October 4, 2005, to proceed with hearings that could lead to a ban of aspartame in New Mexico. Before the board was the question, "Did the EIB have the authority to hold a hearing to determine whether or not to ban for sale in the state of New Mexico a federally-approved food additive?"
Before making a motion to grant the hearing, EIB vice-Chairman Cliff Stroud commented that the system would be broken if the board did not have the authority to listen when people have concerns about the food supply.
The board's decision came after a meeting in which the attorney for Santa Fe art gallery owner Stephen Fox argued that the board does have the statutory authority to ban aspartame in New Mexico. Fox's arguments were countered by a brief submitted by attorneys for aspartame producer Ajinomoto and the Calorie Control Council (CCC)-a national trade group that promotes the use of aspartame. The five-day hearing on the subject of aspartame is scheduled for next July.
Fox has been prepping the groundwork for over two years. With the help of Mission Possible, Fox, who had previously spearheaded an attempt to create a nutrition council for New Mexico, kept the subject of aspartame toxicity in front of key people in New Mexico government.
Though his attempt to pass a bill was unsuccessful last year, Fox discovered that the state has already empowered the EIB to reexamine consumer protection issues-including food quality. Laws authorizing the state to protect its people from harmful substances in commerce have been on the books since 1941. Several states passed similar laws about that time to be in harmony with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which was formed in 1938.
Fox has made such an impression that New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson told Albuquerque Journal reporter Jackie Jadrnak October 5, 2005, that he doesn,t think the federal government is doing enough to protect the public from the dangers of aspartame. When asked if he thought aspartame was harmful, Jadnrak quoted him as saying, "Yes, from what I have learned." And, boy has he learned. Utilizing every avenue and resource at his disposal, Fox called all of his friends to call all of the public officials and newspaper reporters he could think of. One would be hard-pressed to find one state-level politician or newspaper editor who has not been exposed to evidence indicating the neurotoxic properties of the artificial sweetener aspartame.
Off the record comments from board members overheard by witnesses attending the Oct. 4 meeting indicate a high level of disgust for the federal regulators who approved aspartame. Particular angst was reserved for current Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld former CEO of aspartame developer G.D. Searle. As CEO, Rumsfeld intentionally, and with full knowledge of its toxicity, inflicted this systemic poison on the world.
