Bans in India of Coke and Pepsi due to pesticide and aspartame ingredients

Bans in India of Coke and Pepsi due to pesticide and aspartame ingredients

A neighbor worked for Coke. When she tested Coke sold in other
countries she says literature said it did contain pesticides and
other toxins. They were told to sign a paper that said you wouldn't
sue if you got cancer from testing the product. You were suppose to
give back the sheet that had the ingredients but she put it in her
pocket and took it home. It remains in a storage shed and she is
locating it. She says they would not get away selling such in the US.

India did the right thing. Aspartame started off as a biochemical
warfare weapon listed with the pentagon and submitted to

Here is the national effort at

And to save the children for schools: Project for Aspartame
Awareness Weekend, which is the weekend after Labor

I just gave a lecture in Pennsylvania on aspartame as a universal
poison and told them what its made of - mutated natural
bacteria. After getting this information I happened to mention it to
a physician who said he saw the vats, yes bacteria - toxic
sludge. This is particularly interesting since a victim at the
Augusta, Georgia plant called sometime ago. I asked him since he
made the toxin what it was made out of and he said, "the only thing
we have here is toxic sludge"! I also have a report on E. coli and
aspartic acid, 40% of aspartame. I have been told that today most
amino acids are genetically engineered.

The medical text on aspartame disease is by H. J. Roberts, M.D., 1038
pages, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic,
We're talking about a global plague! And it gets worse because
aspartame is addictive. It liberates free methyl alcohol which
causes chronic methanol poison. This affects the dopamine system of
the brain and causes the addiction. It's like trying to get someone
off cocaine. On and you can click on to
the Aspartame Information List which acts as a support group.

Blaylock, M.D.,

Be sure to see the aspartame documentary to find out how it got
approved when the FDA said no: Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, or Barnes & Noble. Don Rumsfeld was responsible. In
fact, there are articles today on Rumsfeld Disease.

Be assured the pop companies knew aspartame breaks down and
adulterates the drink and is illegal before they put it in pop. It's
prohibited to add an adulterated product to food as admitted by the
National Soft Drink Assn (now American Beverage). They wrote a 30
page protest. Because they turned around and lobbied for NutraSweet
it was added to the congressional
record: You cannot
ship an adulterated product for sale so it violates interstate
commerce laws. Further, as FDA toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross told
Congress, aspartame violates the Delaney Amendment because without a
shadow of a doubt it triggered brain tumors and brain cancer in
original studies. His last words
to Congress were: "And if the FDA violates its own laws, who is left
to protect the public?" Here is
Delaney: There was so much
outrage of people being poisoned there were three congressional hearings.

The FDA has been told repeatedly that aspartame is against the law,
and they have known it from the beginning. Jerome Bressler who
wrote the FDA audit, told me, as
well as Doctors H. J. Roberts and Russell Blaylock that the studies
were so bad that FDA removed the worst 20% when they retyped it. I
wrote a petition for ban over 4 years ago and they refuse to answer
it. The law states that they must answer it in 180 days showing you
the FDA operates above the law.

Now the Ramazzini Study in Italy has shown aspartame to be a
multipotential carcinogen causing leukemia, lymphoma, cancer of the
kidneys and peripheral nerves, mostly cranial, and only the rats fed
aspartame developed malignant brain tumors. The European Food
Safety Authority reviewed it using people with links to the
manufacturer, and then lied saying the cancers were due to
respiratory disease. Dr. Soffritti, director, corrected them and
told them what is common knowledge, respiratory disease is part of
the dying process. They
have refused to apologize or recall aspartame, so they have been
reported to the International Court of Justice, United Nations and
World Health Organization. Ajinomoto's doors should be closed
forever, as well as all aspartame manufacturers.

I congratulate India for having the integrity to put the people
first. The FDA has betrayed the public trust. Because the
information on aspartame being an addictive, excitoneurotoxic
carcinogenic drug has saturated the earth, the FDA recently put out a
report that artificial sweeteners were safe. Immediately people
think of aspartame and Splenda. This shows you with full knowledge
they are lying to the world in violation of Title 18, Section 1001,
the very law they once used to try and indict the original
manufacturer, Searle. It was sold to Monsanto in l985 and today is
owned by four companies, Ajinomoto, Merisant (a bunch of Monsanto
managers), Childs of Boston and Michael Dell's investment
company. Aspartame is an absolute chemical poison and chemical
hypersensitization agent interacting with all drugs and
vaccines. That means no
drug is safe as long as aspartame is on the market. This shows the
FDA is not protecting the public but trying to get them to use a
chemical poison with full knowledge it's a killer. In fact,
aspartame even damages the cardiac conduction system and causes
sudden death:

Here is how they make Splenda/sucralose - would you want to consume it?


* Sucrose is tritylated with tritylchloride; This is performed in
the presence of dimethylformamide and 4 - methylmorpholine.
* The tritylated sucrose is then acetylated with acetic anhydride....
* The resulting TRISPA (6,1',6' - tri - O -trityl - penta - O -
acetylsucrose) is then chlorinated with hydrogen chloride, in the
presence of toluene.
* The resulting 4 - PAS (sucrose - 2,3,4,3',4' - penta-acetate)
is then heated in the presence of methyl isobutyl ketone and acetic acid.
* The resulting mixture, 6 - PAS (sucrose - 2,3,6,3',4' -
penta-acetate) is again chlorinated with thionyl chloride, in the
presence of toluene and benzyltriethylammoniumchloride...............and,
* The resulting TOSPA (sucrose pena-acetate) is then treated with
methanol, in the presence of sodium methoxide which produces the
commercial product we call:
* ..........Sucralose, or SPLENDA .
Here is some information on
Splenda started out as an insecticide.

Hope you will continue to expose this deadly poison to the public.

Another story: Coke and Pepsi banned in India over aspartame,
pesticides and other toxins:

China has also restricted aspartame use. Stephen Fox in New Mexico
has petitioned for the ban of aspartame. Parliamentarian in England,
(Williams) demanded a ban. Robin Goodwin in the Falklands not only
petitioned for a ban of aspartame but didn't want to wait and wrote
all those living in the Falklands. Aspartame remains on the shelves unsold.
