State board delays hearings on aspartame

SANTA FE (AP) - The state Environmental Improvement Board has postponed
hearings on the artificial sweetener aspartame.
The seven-member board voted unanimously Tuesday to wait for a state
attorney general’s opinion on whether the board has the authority to ban
or place warning labels on products such as aspartame.
The board asked for the opinion on November 9th. The board had planned
to hold five days of hearings in July, but the hearings now have been
delayed until January 2007.
Santa Fe gallery owner Stephen Fox has been pushing for a statewide ban
on aspartame. He contends new research suggests aspartame is a toxin
that can harm human health.
A leading manufacturer of aspartame, Ajinomoto USA Incorporated, says
the federally approved substance is safe.
