Racketeering Charges Filed Against NutraSweet Co., American Diabetes
Association, Monsanto & Dr Robert H. Moser for Manufacturing and Marketing
Toxic Aspartame, Plaintinff, Joe Bellon, individually, and as a
representative of a class of Plaintiffs, filed in the United States District
Court for the
Northern District of California seeking $350,000,000 in damages
San Francisco, CA:
A RACKETEER INFLUENCED & CORRUPT ORGANIZATIONS [RICO]
complaint has been filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District
of California. The suit charges the defendants with manufacturing and
marketing a deadly neurotoxin unfit for human consumption, while they assured
pubic that aspartame (also known as NutraSweet/Equal) contaminated products are
healthful, even for children and pregnant women. Present Secretary of
Defense Donald Rumsfeld is mentioned throughout the lawsuit.
As evidence, an explosive affidavit from a former translator for the G.D.
Searle Co - the developer of aspartame - will be made public at a National
Press Conference on Thursday, September 16 at 11:00 a.m. at the Sheraton
Grand Sacramento Hotel, 1230 J Street, Sacramento, California 95814, phone
For 16 years, the FDA denied approval of aspartame because of compelling
evidence of its contributing to brain tumors and other serious
disabilities. Donald Rumsfeld, present Secretary of Defense in the Bush
Administration, left President Ford's administration as Chief of Staff to
become the CEO of aspartame producer G D Searle Co. in 1981. Shortly after,
Rumsfeld became the CEO, and the day after President Reagan took office,
aspartame was quickly approved by FDA Commissioner Arthur Hayes over the
objections of the FDA's Public Board of Inquiry. Hayes had been recently
appointed by the Reagan Administration. Shortly after aspartame's approval
by the FDA, Hayes joined NutraSweet's public relations firm under a ten
year contract at $1,000 a day.
Aspartame/NutraSweet was the product of the G. D. Searle Co. In January
1977, the FDA wrote a 33 page letter to U.S. Justice Department Attorney
Sam Skinner: "We request that your office convene a Grand Jury
investigation into apparent violations of the Federal Food, Drug and
Cosmetic Act." Skinner allowed the Statute of Limitations to run.
Three FDA Commissioners and eight other officers and Skinner took jobs in
the aspartame industry shortly after it was approved.
The Food and Drug Administration once listed 92 adverse reactions from
10,000 consumer complaints and would send the list to all inquirers. In 1996
FDA stopped taking complaints and now denies existence of the report.
Seizures, blindness, sexual dysfunction, obesity, testicular, mammary and
brain tumors and death, plus dozens of other dread diseases named in the
suit arise from the consumption of this neurotoxin.
Defendant Moser, past CEO of NutraSweet, is cited for misrepresenting facts
to public and commercial users with full knowledge of the deceptions. The
toxin is sold to Bayer, Con Agra Foods, Dannon, Smucker,
Kellogg, Wrigley, PepsiCo, Kraft Foods (Crystal Light), Conopco
(Slim-Fast), Coke, Pfizer, Wal-Mart and Wyeth (to name a few), who use it
in some of their products, including children's vitamins. These entities are
named in other suits now in California Courts.
Defendant American Diabetes Association's mission is to care for diabetics.
A 35 year ADA member, world famous diabetic specialist H.J.Roberts, M.D.,
discovered aspartame can precipitate diabetes and reacts harmfully with
insulin. ADA rejected his report which was then published in a prestigious
The seven count indictment includes charges for violation of California
Consumers Legal Remedies Act, Fraud, violations of California Civil Code
§1780-1784 and Injunctive Relief: that Defendants be enjoined from future
use/sale of aspartame.
