Reply to my post on another forum from Sheila, a professional science writer.
It's an interesting study. True, it's in rats, so this relationship still has to be proven in humans. But they do note that rats and humans metabolize aspartame in the same way.

Keeping that caution in mind -- it's particularly compelling that aspartame carcinogenicity is significant at doses comparable to what's considered the acceptable daily limit here in the U.S.

AND.....more than 70% of the aspartame market IS FOR SOFT DRINKS! With these rats, the carcinogenic impact of daily aspartame increased quite a bit when their exposure began in utero. When I think of the women who have their daily diet sodas all through their pregnancy.

And aspartame is used in many hundreds of pharmaceutical products, including children's medicines.

The authors also do a very good job of identifying the significant shortcomings of the earlier studies that made aspartame appear safe in this regard.

For now we see through a glass, darkly.... 1st Corinthians 13:12

FDA, EFSA to review new aspartame study
By Lorraine Heller

6/27/2007 - Regulatory bodies in the United States and Europe have said they will review a new study linking aspartame to an increased risk of cancer, but have reiterated that until an evaluation of the data is conducted they continue to support the safety of the sweetener.
