Formaldehyde Accumulation Seen From Ingested Aspartame (Monsanto Product)
Monsanto Investing News web page.
Research conducted by scientists at the University of Barcelona and published in
the scientific journal Life Sciences (Vol. 63, No. 5, Pp. 337-349, 1998) shows
that animals given aspartame at doses obtainable by humans had an accumulation of
formaldehyde (bound to proteins) known as "adducts." These formaldehyde adducts
difficult to eliminate and are well known to cause chronic toxicity. Formaldehyde
has been shown to cause damage to the nervous system, immune system and
irreversible genetic damage. The authors conclude that "aspartame consumption
may constitute a hazard because of its contribution to the formation of formaldehyde
An extremely large number of adverse reaction reports have been linked to the
ingestion of Monsanto-produced aspartame. (See the following document for an
analysis of the toxicity reports:
Reported Toxicity Reactions FAQ.) It was
that nearly 100% of independent research has found problems with aspartame.
Now, this research showing formaldehyde adduct accumulation will likely lead to
a much larger number of lawsuits against Monsanto for aspartame poisoning than
the one that had
filed earlier this year.
