Monsanto’s Neotame molecule allowed in USDA certified organic foods | Food Freedom:

In 1998, Monsanto applied for FDA approval for a monster molecule, “based on the aspartame formula” with one critical addition: 3-dimethylbutyl [listed on EPA's most hazardous chemical list]. Neotame is touted as being 13,000 times sweeter than sugar.

On July 5, 2002 – Monsanto’s Neotame molecule was approved by the US FDA over formally registered objections of the Aspartame Consumer Safety Network and others. (Long term effects on humans are unknown.) Read the full release on The Aspartame Consumer Safety Network. The food labeling requirements required for aspartame have now been dropped for Neotame, and no one is clear why this was allowed to happen. Neotame has been ruled acceptable, and without being included on the list of ingredients, for: 1. USDA Certified Organic food items. 2. Certified Kosher products with the official letter k inside the circle on labels.

All problems are exacerbated by government.

The almost complete reliance on synthetic and expensive drugs is the great “catch 22” of American medicine. It costs so much to gain FDA approval that only synthetic drugs new to planet earth and the human body, and therefore patentable, are submitted to the FDA. But, precisely because they lack FDA approval, effective and inexpensive natural medicines are barred from the system.
For example, when cherry growers tried to cite research from Harvard and elsewhere about the
health benefits of cherries, they were immediately enjoined by the FDA. The agency took the position that even an accurate recital of valid science was “false advertising” if it involved health “claims,” and that the only way for cherry growers to make health “claims” would be to take cherries through the drug approval process. If cherries made it through this process, they would thenceforth be regulated by the FDA not as foods, but as a drug.
