Did Donald Rumsfeld Push Through an Unsafe Food Additive?
Here we go again: the interplay of ethics scandals in the corporate and government worlds.
While I take this source with a grain of salt, I see no reason to doubt the allegations that a drug company pushed through approval of aspartame despite some serious health risks. Nor does it surprise me that Donald Rumsfeld was apparently involved. It would be in keeping with the amoral mentality he has shown over and over again in his current position.
One day, perhaps, we will have evolved as a species to the point where people will read this sort of thing in the history books and laugh, knowing how far we've come. Meanwhile, we can reach for our handkerchiefs.
