But what about ASPARTAME?

A new study on aspartame conducted by the Ramazzini Foundation reveals that aspartame causes a dose-dependent increase in cancers (lymphomas, leukemias and breast cancers) when consumed at levels approaching those consumed by humans in diet soft drinks. Specifically, the study shows (reprinted from the abstract):

a) a significant dose-related increase of malignant tumor-bearing animals in males, in particular in the group treated at 2000 ppm; b) a significant increase of the incidence in lymphomas/leukemias in males treated at 2000 ppm and a significant dose-related increase of the incidence of lymphomas/leukemias in females, in particular in the group treated at 2000 ppm; c) a significant dose-related increase of the incidence of mammary cancer in females, in particular in the group treated at 2000 ppm. Conclusions. The results of this carcinogenicity bioassay not only confirm, but also reinforce the first experimental demonstration of [aspartame’s] multipotential carcinogenicity at a dose level close to the acceptable daily intake (ADI) for humans. Furthermore, the study demonstrates that when lifespan exposure to [aspartame] begins during fetal life, its carcinogenic effects are increased.

The study, entitled “Lifespan Exposure to Low Doses of Aspartame Beginning During Prenatal Life Increases Cancer Effects in Rats” has been accepted for publication in the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP), the most widely-read environmental science journal in the world.

This is the second study conducted by the Ramizzini Foundation documenting the cancer-causing effects of aspartame in animals. Most sane people, when faced with such evidence, would ask the obvious questions: Could aspartame also cause cancer in humans? Should we review the safety of aspartame just in case?

Shutting down good science to protect profits
Virtually the entire health and medical system in the United States is not interested in these questions. Following the publication of this study, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a statement flatly denying aspartame poses any safety risk whatsoever, rejecting the idea that its safety or approval as a food ingredient should be reviewed at all. Specifically, FDA spokesperson Michael Herndon said, “…the FDA finds no reason to alter its previous conclusion that aspartame is safe as a general purpose sweetener in food.”

In other words, the FDA is not interested in any new science that might challenge a decision it already made. Long live scientific-sounding dogma!

As reported by the CSPI in a recent press release, According to a 1996 report in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the FDA rejected repeated proposals by NIEHS to test aspartame using more modern methods than were originally used. David Rall, the former director of NIEHS and its National Toxicology Program, said, “any compound that is that widely used needs to be retested with modern methods every once in a while.” The State of California, too, has urged new testing of aspartame. The FDA also rejected NIEHS’s proposal to test acesulfame potassium, which CSPI says was “abysmally tested” by its manufacturer and showed signs of causing cancer in animals.

Clearly, the FDA only hears what it wants to hear when it comes to protecting the highly profitable aspartame market. Those who have studied a bit of aspartame history know that aspartame was pushed through the FDA by none other than Donald Rumsfeld. Click here to read more articles on aspartame and its dubious history. Since the very beginning, the FDA has done everything in its power to protect the aspartame industry, including denying approval for the natural herbal sweetener stevia as a way to suppress the competition and protect the market for corporate-manufactured chemical sweeteners like aspartame.

CSPI urges re-evaluation of aspartame safety
This latest study on aspartame and cancer caused the CSPI to issue a public press release calling for the FDA to review the study to determine whether aspartame is really safe. CSPI also downgraded its rating on aspartame and is now recommending that everyone should avoid using aspartame.

(For the record, I’ve been recommending people avoid aspartame since I first began writing about nutrition. The toxicity of this chemical sweetener was obvious to me, and in my opinion there is no safe dose of a substance that breaks down into formaldehyde in the human body. In my view, aspartame is an obvious neurotoxin, not to mention its cancer-promoting effects. No one should consume it, and children or expectant mothers should avoid it like a poison.)

Also reported by CSPI: Among those who today called on FDA Commissioner Andrew von Eschenbach to review the new aspartame study are former Occupational Safety and Health Administration officials John Froines (now at UCLA) and Peter F. Infante (now at George Washington University); James Huff, current Associate Director for Chemical Carcinogenesis at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS); and Kamal M. Abdo, a toxicologist formerly at the National Toxicology Program of the NIEHS.

Let’s poison America!
With its stubborn refusal to even review the safety record on aspartame, the FDA seems to be shouting out loud, “Let’s poison America!” Of course, the FDA has no intention of initiating anything resembling real scientific scrutiny on aspartame because aspartame was never proven safe in the first place! It was force-fed through the FDA’s approval process based purely on distorted, junk science constructed to win approval for a chemical that would earn billions of dollars for powerful corporations (and the powerful, evil bastards who run them).

And ever since, aspartame has been poisoning Americans each and every day, contributing to seizures, blindness, migraine headaches, vision problems, neurological disorders and possibly even cancers. The fact that no health authority in America is interested in taking a new look at the safety of aspartame is nothing short of astonishing. That is, until you consider the fact that most medical authorities suffer from a severe case of Groupthink and posses no ideas other than the ones spoonfed them by their politically-motivated bosses. It takes real courage to break with the herd and actually state the obvious these days. Most people are satisfied just to go along with whatever the masses say, even if it makes no sense.

Some people call this refusal by the FDA to review aspartame’s safety an “oversight” or “mistake” on the part of the agency. Who are they kidding? I call it a crime against the People of America, because to knowingly allow a dangerous, cancer-causing, nerve-damaging chemical to be used in the national food supply — even while receiving tens of thousands of health complaints from the people consuming aspartame — is nothing less than negligent homicide. It’s a felony, and those responsible for allowing this poison to contaminate America’s food supply are, indeed, unindicted felons who deserve to be arrested and prosecuted for their crimes. (A fitting punishment, as always, would be to force-feed them high doses of aspartame and see what happens. If it’s really as safe as they claim, there’s no harm, is there?)

Anybody with a brain that still functions in this country — and I admit that number is shrinking by the hour — knows that all the pro-aspartame studies upon which the FDA based its previous safety approval were partially or fully funded by the corporations making money from the sale of aspartame. The entire history of aspartame boils down to corruption, influence and profit-mongering.

There is nothing resembling scientific scrutiny in the aspartame debacle. Nearly every decision that has been made about aspartame by government regulators or private industry has been a political decision, not a public safety decision. There is nothing resembling public safety still operating at the Food and Drug Administration anymore.

Add aspartame to the FDA’s Hall of Shame, right alongside Vioxx, Rezulin and the ordered destruction of recipe books that dared to mention the stevia herb as an ingredient. It’s just one more way in which the FDA continues to betray the American people and subject them to life-threatening ingredients that any honest Food and Drug Administration would have banned long ago.

Stevia Testimonials

Many thanks again for your very rapid delivery of the stevia last week, the tincture is being used by my girlfriend as a replacement for coffee sweeteners. Although stevia is a more costly replacement, it certainly works very well as such and has enabled us to shed another artificial ingredient from our diets. I gave some to my mother who immediately asked me to order some on her behalf. If only common sense could prevail over big pharmaceutical lobbyists to enable this to enter the market more freely!

Craig Wood

Hi Alan, Just to let you know that I’ve now tried Stevia liquid in both hot porridge & cold soaked porridge oats & find it’s brilliant! I feel so much better after eating these dishes without the usual honey addition, even though the honey was organic & very good quality. No sugar hit of sweating & iritability ~ I,m very happy with your product.
Kind regards,

Joanna Levan

Just to let you know as well that my husband is very very happy with the Stevia we recently ordered! Thanks so much!


Dear Alan,
Your Stevia is just great!

Janos / Sweden

Hi Alan: The stevia is fine; it’s a treat several times a day and I’m experimenting using it in different ways. However, it seems different to other batches; a bit “rougher”.

Herbactive’s answer: You’re right Donna! it is different because it is now totally ORGANIC! Glad you’re enjoying it.


Dear Alan
Thankyou so much for the amazingly speed at which my Stevia arrived. Fantastic service. I will be using only Stevia from now on.
With regards

Rachel Andrews

Alan, I’m on a low carb diet, Atkins style, to lose weight and it’s working a treat. But treats have been few! I can’t and won’t eat sweets or fruits (I have some berries). But I’d like something sweet after my high protein and salad meals and felt a certain unpleasant stoicism creeping in cos I refuse to have anything sugary. Then I got your Stevia-ACT liquid. Wow, what stoicism? It’s gone! I especially love good coffee with double cream and lots of Stevia. It is just sooo satisfying! Thank you very much for your brilliant product.
Getting Thin and Loving It!


1tsp Stevia-ACE = 200g sugar
Hi Alan. I baked some cashew nut/chocolate biscuits which required in the recipe 200g of sugar. Not knowing the equivalent in stevia I opted for the liquid and replaced the sugar with 1 teaspoon of it. I expected the biscuits to turn green but guess that the chocolate was more prominent at 75g of dark chocolate.
I let a friend have a taste and she could not tell it was stevia instead of sugar and thought that it was just the right amount! Fantastic!


Hi Alan, I am loving the stevia powder which is helping me manage my sugar-free diet without withdrawals!!


Alan, Thank you for the Stevia, it cleared up my daughters eczema which was quite bad.


Just a quick email to say a very big thank you for the Stevia Liquid Concentrate received earlier this week. Thank you for such prompt service and I must say this is the best Stevia I have ever tasted. Several years ago I ordered Stevia from Canada and disliked the taste so much I discarded it. The Stevia you have supplied is absolutely delicious and I will order the Stevia Fine Powder shortly as I’ve invested in an excellent cook book and want to try out some of the recipes.
Thank you again Alan for such an excellent product and wonderful service.
Kind regards,

Angela Thompson

Dear Alan, Thank you for sending the stevia, this is to confirm that I received it on Tuesday as you had predicted. I appreciate that my order was processed promptly and will surely mention your company to whoever may need to purchase stevia or other herbal remedies.Yours sincerely,

Alessandra / Greece

Hi Alan, WOW!! I certainly didn’t expect to receive my order today (less than 24 hours). Well done.
Just trying a coffee (filtered) with the Stevia tincture. I am normally a 2 heaping spoon of Demerera sugar person. I had tried some of the white processed Stevia’sweetener packets from America and found that I didn’t enjoy the taste as much as sugar although it didn’t have an after-taste of other sweeteners. I did cut down to 1 spoon of sugar and 1/2 pkt white Stevia and found that quite palatable. I am now experimenting with your tincture. This brought the coffee to an acceptably sweet taste and yet did not affect the coffee’s flavour.
As I enjoy strong coffee I did not notice any taste from your tincture. It will be interesting to try it with tea (which I drink with 1 small spoon of white sugar).
First impressions are good. I eagerly anticipate the next several days of experimenting followed by a larger order in due course.
Thank you for your product and service. Kind regards


Hi Alan.

I arrived at your site because I was looking for organic, natural stevia, so its great to have the confirmation – I hadnt realised that the colour is such an important distiction. Its amazing how many sites are pushing the clear stuff, claiming it is organic! I wish you all the best and of course will recommend to friends and family that we now have a proper and creditable source of orgnaic stevia available to us through your website.

Best wishes

Singing for Stevia
Hi Alan. Thanks for the Stevia, which I got the other day. We like the Stevia as an alternative to sugar but also we have a singer in the family who finds a generous squirt of Stevia in a glass of water helps his singing, on days when his voice isn’t quite working a glass of stevia water seems to sort the problem out!
Hope this is interesting to you,


I bought some stevia from you the other day and am reporting back! My husband and I are both using it and enjoying it very much, completely irresistible – amazing stuff. We’ll be back for more for sure. Your range of herbal medicines is fascinating and very impressive. If we lived nearer we’d come and see you.
Best wishes,


Dear Alan,
Re salad dressing:
Of course it is all approximate, a bit of this, a squirt of Stevia (as I have my Stevia in a liquid soap dispenser it does all come down to squirts) It also depends on the oil and vinegar used.
However, I have this evening spent a little time working with spoons to see if I can create a readable recipe. Here goes:
Stevia & Mustard Salad Dressing.
I clove of garlic crushed
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tbsp whole grain mustard
6 tbsp olive oil
1tsp Stevia liquid
Throw it all together and shake. Try using cider vinegar, sunflower oil and Dijon mustard as alternatives. Garlic is optional.

Dear Alan, Since taking your Stevia alcohol-free liquid two years ago I just haven’t touched sugar and my shape has come back! I blame the sugar I used to eat that made my stomach to bloat and for being over-weight. I used to use the American stuff, but actually I like the slight taste of yours! Thank you for helping me to lose my addiction to sugar and to regain my feminine shape and my flat tummy! I still love sweet things but now it is your Stevia that I use. I bake with it and even make chocolate with it, also carob chocolate. Congratulations on your 25th anniversary. Please send me another two 1 litre bottles and many thanks for your gift of 300ml extra free. Very sweet of you!

P. Frost / London

I bought stevia from you a couple or so weeks ago – in both powder and liquid form.
It goes wonderfully! I enjoy both forms and used them as a replacement for sugar in all drinks. After a few days it becomes a taste which excels that of sugar. A more herby less chemical sweetness. In mint tea it is absolutely delicious. So I’ll be coming back for more in a while.
Best wishes

Ray Brown

Hi Alan. Just to let you know. I bought your dropper size stevia cos I was dieting, and then uncontrollably binging on sugar. It was chronic and stupid, but something gets into your brain, and you can’t stop binging with sugary stuff. I started using your stevia and it’s stopped, it has really, really helped, it is brilliant, I now feel in control. Thanks. Please send me the 300ml size.

Pam / Cheshire

I was really unsure about trying Stevia powder cos I have had ME for nearly 15 yrs. But now I’m really, really pleased with it and I’m really, really chuffed with the powder. I use it blended with basmati rice and it’s really delicious, just like a pudding! Also with buckwheat and in other foods. I just love it! Thank you it has been so nice talking to you about it.

H. Jones / England

Hello Alan
Our order to try the liquid Stevia – well it’s a winner! We love it & my father likes it too (but he still likes the green powder too!)
Kind Regards

Pat Bates

Dear Alan, After our daughter was diagnosed with DM1 we turned to a low carb diet. We wanted to replace the things she loved (biscuits,cakes,ice creams) so she didn`t feel she was missing out. Luckily for us we found your website and STEVIA- ACE : an extra bonus for us was knowing that you compound the Stevia yourself and know for sure that it has no hidden additives or other chemical preservatives. Now my wife makes things that are better than shop-made. The biggest reason (apart from my wife`s culinary skills!) is the quality of your product supported by your care about making the customer satisfied. I would never use anyone else`s Stevia. Briliant stuff !
Best regards

John Raffertty / Manchester

Your Stevia liquid keeps my blood sugar stable. I take it every day and I have no desire to eat chocolate or suck sweets. I feel more awake and less anxious. I also use it in apple tarts, crumbles, fruit stews. Stevia has changed my life, I used to feel low, almost depressed, now I have that get up and go feeling. Alan, you said it was better than ginseng and I agree, it is!

Pauline / Southampton

Dear Alan.
I’m on my third order of your excellent organic liquid stevia, and my health has improved slowly but steadily through its use.
I’m writing because I want to share the most delicious and easy recipe I’ve developed for Apple and/or Pear Cake.
300g cored cooking apples (or hard pears) raw with skin on.
Blend to a puree in food processor
Add: 3 or 4 tsb whole leaf stevia powder to taste.
3 med eggs
200 grms ground almonds
1 tsp vanilla essence for apple cake. Almond essence for pear cake.
2 rounded tsp baking powder
For special occasions 1 tbs brandy.
Blend thoroughly and pour into
1 or 2 8inch lined cake tins.
Bake at 180 degrees for 20 to 25mins.
Test with skewer – if clean its done.
Delicious warm as a dessert or cold with fruit or yogurt.
I can’t recommend this too highly as a wheat free/sugar free GI treat.
I’ll be ordering some more Stevia soon,
Best wishes

Pam Frost
