Cancer and premature birth fears linked to fizzy drink sweetener | Business | Scoop.it

A leading British expert has called for an investigation into serious health concerns over the artificial sweetener aspartame – after the EU food watchdog insisted it was safe.

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, March 11, 2013 10:18 AM

The European Food Safety Authority is in the pocket of industry. Nothing strange. It's a structural given.

 

In those kinds of agencies, the people with expertise are more likely than not those who have ties with the industry that's supposed to be regulated.

 

That leads to unavoidable and insurmountable conflicts of interest and in the end to decisions that one-sidedly "support" the industry being regulated, leaving all concern for public health by the wayside.
