Internal Awareness - Did U Know Aspartame Kills

internalawareness.com [cached]

An anonymous editorial that reads like an ad appeared in the Albuquerque Journal; next the Santa Fe New Mexican ran a letter from Paul Block, Merisant CEO, with the absurd title ASPARTAME SAFE.
Block tells us: "there is simply no question aspartame is safe...200 studies over 30 years, etc., etc., etc." Rejoice that an unbiased, impartial authority, with no prejudice, absolutely neutral, servant of enlightenment, purity and truth recommends a neurotoxin he stands to cop an extra ten million from. In September Merisant bonused Block with four percent of the first $100 million, 5% of the next and 6% thereafter. Plus his regular pay, of course, and the limousine, and the airplane, and, and, and ... Surely no one would think such meager monetary considerations color Block's allegiance to truth. He just drank too much diet pop and it blew his memory, #9 on the FDA list of 92 symptoms from 10,000 aspartame complaints. Block forgot the 17 page expose in September's Ecologist, and many renowned doctors raising outcry, publishing books, magazine and Internet articles, and by radio warning America of this dread and growing disaster. Block can't recall that once FDA asked the Justice Department to investigate the manufacturer for filing fraudulent reports to get it approved. To Paul Block: Everybody's sick of the denials after a quarter century of controversy, sickness, ruination and death. The world has had enough. You don't have to lose your bonus, Paul, just change the label to read rat poison.
