FDA Imminent Health Hazard Petition to Revoke and Rescind Aspartame's Approval, Filed 1/27/18

Dr. Joseph Thomas of the FDA recently wrote to me to the effect that if there has been something new since 2002, we can file again our request for ban on aspartame. They completely disregarded the Imminent Health Hazard petition sent to them in 2007. Here is the recent report exposing how FDA lies and violates the law.

Dr. Thomas' email to me is at the bottom of this post. 

Of course, scientific peer reviewed studies have continued and almost 100% of them show problems. FDA has not even replied to the ones prior to that time. Taken from the" US Right To Know" petition to FDA here are just some of the studies:
