ASPARTAME

WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE
and the
MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS FOUNDATION
F.D.A. ISSUING FOR COLLUSION WITH MONSANTO

Article written by Nancy Markle (1120197)

I have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on "ASPARTAME marketed as 'NutraSweet','Equal', and 'Spoonful" In the keynote address by the EPA, they announced that there was an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus, and they did not understand what toxin was causing this to be rampant across the United States. I explained that I was there to lecture on exactly that subject.

When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. (Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants). The methanol toxicity mimics multiple sclerosis; thus, people were being diagnosed with having multiple sclerosis in error. The multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, where methanol toxicity is.

In the case of systemic lupus, we are finding it has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. Also, with methanol toxicity, the victims usually drink three to four 12oz.cans of them per day, some even more. In the cases of systemic lupus, which is triggered by ASPARTAME, the victim usually does not know that the aspartame is the culprit. The victim continues its use aggravating the lupus to such a degree, that sometimes it becomes life threatening. When we get people off the ASPARTAME, those with systemic lupus usually become symptomatic. Unfortunately, we cannot reverse this disease. On the other hand, in the case of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, (when in reality, the disease is methanol toxicity), most of the symptoms disappear. We have seen cases where their vision has returned and even their hearing has returned. This also applies to cases of tinnitus.

During a lecture I said "If you are using ASPARTAME (NutraSweet,Equal,Spoonful, etc.) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision,or memory loss - you probably have ASPARTAME DISEASE!"

People were jumping up during the lecture saying, "I've got this, is it reversible?" It is rampant. Some of the speakers at my lecture even were suffering from these symptoms. In one lecture attended by the Ambassador of Uganda, he told us that their sugar industry is adding aspartame! He continued by saying that one of the industry leader's son could no longer walk - due in part to product usage!

We have a very serious problem. Even a stranger came up to Dr. Espisto (one of my speakers) and myself and said, "Could you tell me why so many people seem to be coming down with MS?" During a visit to a hospice, a nurse said that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond coincidence.

Here is the problem. There were Congressional Hearings when ASPARTAME was included in 100 different products. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, but to no avail. Nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets. Now there are over 5,000 products containing this chemical, and the PATENT HAS EXPIRED!!!!!

At the time of this first hearing, people were going blind. The methanol in the ASPERTAME converts to formaldehyde in the retina of the eye.

Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of drugs as cyanide and arsenic - DEADLY POISONS!!! Unfortunately, it just takes longer to quietly kill, but it is killing people and causing all kinds of neurological problems.

ASPARTAME changes the brain's chemistry. It is the reason for severe seizures. This drug changes the dopamine level in the brain. Imagine what this drug does to patients suffering from Parkinson's Disease. This drug also causes Birth Defects.

There is absolutely no reason to take this product. It is NOT A DIET PRODUCT!!!

The Congressional record said, "It makes you crave carbohydrates and will make you FAT". Dr. Roberts stated that when he got patients off ASPARTAME their average weight loss was 19 pounds per person. The formaldehyde stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs.

ASPARTAME is especially deadly for diabetics. All physicians know what wood alcohol will do to a diabetic. We find that physicians believe that they have patients with retinopathy, when in fact, it is caused by the ASPARTAME. The ASPARTAME keeps the blood sugar level out of control, causing many patients to go into a coma. Unfortunately, many have died. People were telling us at the Conference of the American College of Physicians, that they had relatives that switched from saccharin to an ASPARTAME product and how that relative had eventually gone into a coma. Their physicians could not get the blood sugar levels under control. Thus, the patients suffered acute memory loss and eventually coma and death. Memory loss is due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are neurotoxic without the other amino acids found in protein. Thus it goes past the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the neurons of the brain. Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, said, "The ingredients stimulate the neurons of the brain to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees. Dr. Blaylock has written a book entitled "EXCITOTOXINS: THE TASTE THAT KILLS" (Health Press 1-800-643-2665).

Dr. H.J. Roberts, diabetic specialist and world expert on aspartame poisoning, has also written a book entitled "DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE" (1-800-814-9800). Dr. Roberts tells how ASPARTAME poisoning is escalating Alzheimer's Disease, and indeed it is. As the hospice nurse told me, women are being admitted at 30 years of age with Alzheimer's Disease. Dr. Blaylock and Dr.Roberts will be writing a position paper with some case histories and will post it on the Internet. According to the Conference of the American College of Physicians, 'We are talking about a plague of neurological diseases caused by this deadly poison". Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when ASPARTAME was first marketed. He said, "his diabetic patients presented memory loss, confusion, and severe vision loss". At the Conference of the American College of Physicians, doctors admitted that they did not know. They had wondered why seizures were rampant (the phenylalanine in aspartame breaks down the seizure threshold and depletes serotonin, which causes manic depression, panic attacks, rage and violence).

Just before the Conference, I received a FAX from Norway, asking for a possible antidote for this poison because they are experiencing so many problems in their country. This "poison" is now available in 90 PLUS countries worldwide. Fortunately, we had speakers and ambassadors at the Conference from different nations who have pledged their help. We ask that you help too.

Print this article out and warn everyone you know. Take anything that contains ASPARTAME back to the store.

Take the "NO ASPARTAME TEST" and send us your case history.

I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of ASPARTAME, knows how deadly it is. They fund the American Diabetes Association, American Dietetic Association, Congress, and the Conference of the American College of Physicians. The New York Times, on November 15, 1996, ran an article on how the American Dietetic Association takes money from the food industry to endorse their products. Therefore, they cannot criticize any additives or tell about their link to MONSANTO. How bad is this? We told a mother who had a child on NutraSweet to get off the product. The child was having grand mal seizures every day. The mother called her physician, who called the ADA, who told the doctor not to take the child off the NutraSweet. We are still trying to convince the mother that the ASPARTAME is causing the seizures. Every time we get someone off of ASPARTAME, the seizures stop. If the baby dies, you know whose fault it is, and what we are up against.

There are 92 documented symptoms of ASPARTAME, from coma to death. The majority of them are all neurological, because the ASPARTAME destroys the nervous system.

ASPARTAME DISEASE is partially the cause to what is behind some of the mystery of the Desert Storm health problems. The burning tongue and other problems discussed in over 60 cases can be directly related to the consumption of an ASPARTAME product. Several thousand pallets of diet drinks were shipped to the Desert Storm troops. (Remember heat can liberate the methanol from the ASPARTAME at 86 degrees F). Diet drinks sat in the 120 degree F. Arabian sun for weeks at a time on pallets. The service men and women drank them all day long. All of their symptoms are identical to ASPARTAME poisoning.

Dr. Roberts says "consuming ASPARTAME at the time of conception can cause birth defects". The phenylalanine concentrates in the placenta, causing mental retardation, according to Dr. Louis Elsas, Pediatrician Professor - Genetics, at Emory University in his testimony before Congress.

In the original lab tests, animals developed brain tumors (phenylalanine breaks down into DXP, a brain tumor agent). When Dr. Espisto was lecturing on ASPARTAME, one physician in the audience, a neurosurgeon, said, when they remove brain tumors, they have found high levels of ASPARTAME in them".

Stevia, a sweet food, NOT AN ADDITIVE, which helps in the metabolism of sugar, which would be ideal for diabetics, has now been approved as a dietary supplement by the F.D.A. For years, the F.D.A. has outlawed this sweet food because of their loyalty to MONSANTO.

If it says "SUGAR FREE" on the label - DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!

Senator Howard Hetzenbaum wrote a bill that would have warned all infants, pregnant mothers and children of the dangers of ASPARTAME. The bill would have also instituted independent studies on the problems existing in the population (seizures, changes in brain chemistry, changes in neurological and behavioral symptoms). It was killed by the powerful drug and chemical lobbies, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting public.

Since the Conference of the American College of Physicians, we hope to have the help of some world leaders.

Again, please help us too. There are a lot of people out there who must be warned, *please* let them know this information. You might want to print it out and hand it out or fax it to people who are not online.

Young people drink a lot of diet coke.

American FDA Poisons The World with Aspartame
 
Rumsfeld and former FDA Commissioner Arthur Hayes are responsible for putting spartame on the market and millions have died. The FDA has had every opportunity to recall aspartame but instead has given its loyalty to Big Pharma. In l986 when the Community Nutrition Institute petitioned FDA to ban aspartame because so many were having seizures and going blind FDA refused. This was like shouting to the world 'We don't care how many have seizures, go blind and die, we represent the aspartame industry and we will be loyal no matter how many perish.' Since then there have been thousands of cases of vision problems, blindness and seizures. It wasn't even the case of not knowing. The RAO Study pivotal in the approval of aspartame showed it to be a seizure triggering drug because of high serum phenylalanine levels in the blood. Your own FDA report of 92 documented symptoms list 4 types of seizures being experienced by people in the population. Why don't you care that people are dying? http://www.dorway.com/raoreport.pdf
 
You remember  Flo Jo, a runner perished. She had a seizure while drinking her Diet Coke. The heart has to work harder and because of aspartame damaging the cardiac conduction system and causing sudden death she didn't have a chance. http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_msg_scd.htm
 
At every opportunity you help Big Pharma. When Pilcher, the athlete, died in West Palm Beach you immediately recalled ephedra, Chinese Mahaung, that has been used for thousands of years. Yet, Pilcher didn't die from Ephedra, he was worried about his weight and would go a couple of days without eating. Then he would drink Diet Coke all day laced with aspartame. So aspartame killed him just like its continuing to kill athletes, even little student athletes in school. But were you concerned about Ephedra - not in the least. The reason we know that is the only ephedra that has done any harm because its synthesized by Big Pharma and added to drugs is by prescription. Yet you allowed that to remain and removed the herb that has done no harm, so  Big Pharma would have the monopoly. Dr. John Olney reviewed your complaints and found them to be without merit, and stated that ephedra was safe. http://www.wnho.net/ephedrastory.htm

 You write you have no power of recall.  Then how did you recall ephedra?  Look at your history.  Why do you lie to the public?
 
 
ASPARTAME VIOLATES THE LAW:
What power has been given you that allows you to serve above the law? You know aspartame is a multipotential carcinogen. In original studies it triggered brain, mammary, uterine, ovarian, testicular, thyroid and pancreatic tumors. Your own FDA toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross told Congress that aspartame violated the Delaney Amendment which forbids putting anything in food you know causes cancer. http://www.wnho.net/the_fda_fable.htm

 The National Soft Drink Assn, now American Beverage, admitted aspartame is adulterated and listed the FDA law that forbids it. http://www.wnho.net/open_letter_dick_adamson.htm

It's a crime to ship an adulterated product for sale. That means  aspartame violates Interstate Commerce Laws. Aspartame is not even an additive because you know that additives must be inert or non-reactive. Additives are not suppose to cause 92 symptoms including death by your own records.  How could you allow even babies and children to consume an additive excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug?
 
News articles declare great concern for benzoate because of damage to the mitochondria in DNA: http://www.carbwire.com/2007/05/30/can_sodium_benzoate_in_soda_destroy_your_mitochondria
 
That's interesting since we know aspartame damages DNA. This scientific peer reviewed study was not even mentioned by the FDA. Damning studies on aspartame are completely ignored by FDA. http://www.wnho.net/formaldehyde_from_aspartame.pdf

 I personally spoke to the researcher in Barcelona about this study.  He told me after doing this study that aspartame would kill 200 million people. I told him it already had. He even went to the authorities and the VP of Spain because of concern for the human race. Perhaps you could take a lesson from men of integrity like Dr. Alemany. Why did you ignore this study that showed the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol embalms living tissue? Is it only fixed industry studies that you accept?  Here is Dr. Walton's research on scientific peer reviewed studies and funding he did for 60 Minutes. http://www.dorway.com/peerrev.html

Note that 92% of independent studies show the problems aspartame causes. Eliminate one pro-industry summary and 6 studies FDA had something to do with and 100% of independent scientific peer reviewed studies show the problems. Isn't 100% good enough for the FDA?  And what does that say for the ones FDA and industry controlled? To ask the question, of course, answers it.  How do they do it?  Here's how industry does it: http://www.dorway.com/wurtman2.html

I doubt that you are even concerned or you would have exposed these years ago. Aspartame also damages the mitochondria, the reason it interacts with all drugs and vaccines:  http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_interacts.htm

No wonder Big Pharma got a law passed to prevent being sued. Don't get rid of the problem, get rid of the liability. What an abomination in a country founded on freedom and in violation of the Bill of the Rights which says you cannot remove the rights of the people or the rights of the states. (9 & 10). No drug is safe as long as the consumer is using aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal/Spoonful/E951/Canderel/Benevia/Naturtaste)
 
CANCER AND ASPARTAME:
It has been known for a quarter of a century aspartame causes cancer and documented in the records of the FDA. So when the prestigious Ramazzini Study was done why did the FDA release information that it was not accepted. http://www.wnho.net/open_letter_to_laura_tarantino_fda.htm

Furthermore, FDA knew Dr. Soffritti had done a new studying showing aspartame causes cancer even in low doses, and released  a  note without any reason for  non-acceptance a day before the new study was being picked up by the world press. It was like shouting:  'We're running out of excuses, quick put out a note and we'll confuse the people!'  How obscene and foul.  What animosity FDA must have for truth!  Do you really think the studies will stop? A good lecture that goes into the acclaimed Ramazzini Study is 'The Truth About Aspartame' by Dr. Russell Blaylock, www.atavistik.com
 
STUPIDITY: 
Because its commonly known and in the FDA records, as well as the protest of the National Soft Drink Assn in the Congressional Record,  that aspartame breaks down at 86 degrees, it was stated when first approved, it would only be in dry products. A 5 year old child could tell you if you put Equal in hot coffee or tea you just heated it. The way you make Jello is put it in a pot with water and heat it?
 
In the Chicago Sun Times, October 22, l987, is this article:  'NutraSweet Ready For Baked Goods'  
'Sources said NutraSweet Co will announce today a new way for its aspartame sweetener product to be used in baked goods, such as cakes and cookies. The company said it would announce the development of a new technology at a press conference at the Ritz Carlton today, but would not comment further. The company has been trying to find a method for NutraSweet to be used in the baking process, because at high temperatures the water in aspartame breaks down and loses its sweet taste.'
 
How can the NutraSweet Company have the gall to say its the 'water' that breaks down. Sounds like someone raving mad from the looney bin!  It's the methanol that gives the sweetness, and its the methanol that breaks down to formaldehyde and formic acid (ant sting poison). The entire molecule breaks down to diketopiperazine, the brain tumor agent.  Even in Searle secret trade information submitted during congressional hearings http://www.dorway.com/secrets.txt it states: 'With the spoon-for-spoon, we have no way of estimating maximum likely abuse and hence need to utilize data based on almost complete conversion to DKP.'  Almost complete conversion to a brain tumor agent, and you people know it.
 
In l993 you granted approval for aspartame to be used in baking. Now, I would like to know as well as the rest of the world what new technology prevents aspartame from breaking down? You approved this so you should have the technology, especially since you admitted to begin with that it couldn't be used in baking.  If you can't answer me, perhaps you can answer Congress because they will certainly get a copy. The secret trade information also admits that aspartame can't be used for everything. Why did Dr. Kessler in l996 grant blanket approval?  Is this what got him his job at Yale?
 
ADDICTING THE WORLD
Methanol is classified as a narcotic. Louis, R. J. Sax's Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials, Eighth Edition, New York:  Van Nostrand Reinhold (1992) pp. 2251 - 2252  The free methyl alcohol in aspartame causes chronic methanol poisoning. This effects the dopamine system of the brain and causes addiction. Methanol is a severe metabolic poison. http://www.dorway.com/tldaddic.html How could you allow this. Many victims would give it up if they could fight the addiction. The Aspartame Information List, www.mpwhi.com helps victims to get off this poison and Essence Recovery Center in Asheville, North Carolina is open to those who can't manage it on their own.
 
BIRTH DEFECTS, MENTAL RETARDATION AND BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS:
Today large grocery chains are beginning the removal of aspartame in their products in the UK. This is because of a study sponsored by Food Standards showing additives cause behavioral problems in children. We know which additive that is. But the FDA has known from the beginning and known aspartame destroys the brains of our children because Dr. John Olney who founded the field of neuroscience proved it to you in this report. http://www.wnho.net/dr_olney1.doc

If that wasn't enough Dr. Louis Elsas, pediatric professor, genetics, testified before Congress.  http://www.dorway.com/dr-elsas.txt

Senator Howard Metzenbaum sponsored a bill that would have NIH do independent studies on behavioral problems in children, and what aspartame does to the fetus, drug interactions, and seizures:  http://www.dorway.com/deadbill.html It just never made it out of committee.  Senator Orrin Hatch had a lot to do with it.  A press release dated February 11, l986 is titled:  'HATCH SAYS NO TO COMMITTEE HEARINGS ON ASPARTAME.'  Senator Hatch received $2,500 from the soft drink political action committee prior to his reelection and $1,000 each from Daniel Searle, Wesley Dixon (Daniel Searle's brother-in-law), and William Searle (Gordon 1987,page 506 of US Senate 1987). Senator Hatch repeatedly blocked hearings looking into the safety of aspartame (Gordon 1987, page 506 of US Senate 1987). His alliance has always been to the aspartame industry and not to consumers who ingest the poison.
 
It's easy to understand the behavioral problems since there is 50% phenylalanine in this toxin which as an isolate floods the brain, lowers the seizure threshold and depletes serotonin. When serotonin is lowered it triggers are types of psychiatric and behavioral problems from bipolar or manic depression, to paranoia, mood swings, panic attacks and hallucinations.  Representatives from Feingold have stated that the terms ADD and ADHD were not even used until the early l980's when aspartame was approved.
 
PROPHECY FULFILLED:
If Dr. Olney was right you would see it in the population. 1 in 150 is born autistic except in New Jersey where it's 1 in 93. 1 in every 6 children in US has a neurological disorder. 50% of all children born have birth defects. This is what the FDA has done to babies and children by refusing to remove aspartame knowing by its own records that it's not only unsafe but a deadly addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug that interacts with all drugs and vaccines.  Since  thimerosal also can cause autism children don't have a chance. What a heinous crime against humanity, emphatic genocide. Since aspartame is also an abortifacient millions of babies have been murdered in their mother's womb. http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_murders_infants.htm

It makes me think of a scripture in Ezekiel, 'the wicked will sleep a perpetual sleep and never awaken'. There are no words strong enough to call this grisly crime before Jehovah God.
 
Today because diet pop is used in high schools to addict the children, cause confusion, memory loss, reduced IQ and a host of other horrors we have supplied to schools, pediatricians and OB-GYN, these articles by the experts:  Report For Schools: http://www.wnho.net/report_on_aspartame_and_children.htm
 
MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
Aspartame triggers MS and many other neurodegenerative diseases: http://www.wnho.net/aspartameandgulfwar.htm

Thanks to our Mission Possible operations throughout the US and world constantly alerting the public many of these aspartame MS victims have walked out of wheelchairs.  A very courageous woman Cori Brackett was diagnosed with MS. She had drank diet soda laced with aspartame for years. She was diagnosed with a huge lesion in her brain and she sat in a wheelchair hardly able to speak. She abstained from aspartame and after a difficult journey finally stepped out of her wheelchair. Eight months later her large lesion all but disappeared. She wasn't satisfied to simply get well but thought of others in the same condition.  She and her husband produced "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World" to alert others so they too could get well. www.amazon.com
 
MS is epidemic because of aspartame and a new study shows that in women it's escalating 50% every decade. FDA by not recalling this poison that you have full knowledge is deadly you are absolutely responsible. http://www.wnho.net/new_report_at_neurology_conference.htm
 
MS and neurological diseases triggered by aspartame are completely discussed in medical books including the mechanism by which this toxin causes the problem.
 
Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, www.sunsentpress.com by H. J. Roberts, M.D.  Over 1000 page medical text on this holocaust.
 
Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. www.russellblaylockmd.com
 
HOW ASPARTAME IS MADE:
 On November 4, l987, the chairman of Monsanto's NutraSweet unit, Robert Shapiro, defended the product saying it was manufactured from natural compounds found in most foods. (Chicago Sun Times, 11/4/87, page 63).
 
Dr. Bill Deagle http://www.wnho.net/molecular_holocaust_of_aspartame.htm  informed me he had seen the vats of bacteria  the amino acids in aspartame are made from.  He said 'its toxic sludge'.  One can only wonder if Stauber who wrote the excellent books, 'Toxic Sludge Is Good For You' and 'Trust Us, We're Experts' exposing the propaganda used to market unsafe products, also knows.
 
Researching the issue further, I spoke to Dr. David Benson at the University of Connecticut, Molecular & Cell Biology. Professor Benson wrote a paper to provide students with background information on how amino acids are made by fermentation.  His paper does mention some of the controversies surrounding the consumption of amino acids but takes neither a pro nor con stance on the genetic engineering of producing organisms or safety of amino acids. He said most all amino acids are genetically engineered. Aspartame is genetically engineered in E. Coli bacteria.
 
His excellent paper:
 HTML Format: http://www.holisticmed.net/aspartame/aminoacid.htm
 PDF (Adobe Acrobat) Format: http://www.holisticmed.net/aspartame/aminoacid.pdf
 
I definitely would not call amino acids made in this fashion natural, unless you believe what you find in your toilet is edible.
 
DIABETES AND OBESITY:
Since aspartame can precipitate diabetes one can understand the epidemic. It also simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, destroys the optic nerve, causes diabetics to go into convulsions and even interacts with insulin as diabetic specialist Dr. H. J. Roberts has written for years.  Since aspartame approval he has treated these victims in the trenches of medical practice. The obesity epidemic is likewise easily explained since aspartame makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight. See Dr. Sandra Cabot's report in Report For Schools.
 
FURTHER INSULT:
As if FDA hadn't poisoned the world enough Sucralose/Splenda was approved. We call it DDT-Lite.  Here's the lethal science: http://www.wnho.net/splenda_chlorocarbon.htm

Inasmuch as it liberates free chlorine (bleach) does this not make it adulterated and against the law as well?  A good background story about this poison: http://www.redorbit.com/news/display/?id=229690

Attorney James Turner and Citizens For Health have already asked for its recall and yet again FDA has not removed it from the marketplace. To add insult to injury it's well known that aspartame is a chemical hypersensitization product because its so poisonous. So when aspartame victims go to Splenda, another poison according to Dr. James Bowen they not only maintain the reactions to aspartame but pick up those from Splenda. And this is exactly what is happening as victims continue to complain of serious reactions.
 
ASPARTAME AND MSG:
Aspartame and MSG have an additive and synergistic effect.  This interaction has been shown on scientific study. http://www.organicconsumers.org/toxic/msg010306.cfm

MSG and the aspartic acid in aspartame are excitotoxins, products that stimulate the neurons of the brain to death causing brain damage.  (Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, Russell Blaylock, MD).
 
Glutamate researchers used aspartame as a placebo in studies so they could say MSG wouldn't react anymore than the placebo. In l993 Jack Samuels, President of the Truth in Labeling Campaign, was reviewing FDA docket files relating to an FDA study on the safety of amino acids in supplements. In the files, he found a letter dated March 22, 1991, from Andrew G. Ebert, PhD, Chairman, International Glutamate Technical Committee - a glutamate industry organization - in which Ebert admitted aspartame had been used since at least 1978 in test and placebo materials that his organization provided to scientists who study the safety of MSG. A review of studies conducted with the above-reference test material clearly indicates that some subjects reacted to both MSG test material and placebo material.  Scientists conducting such studies concluded that since subjects reacted to both MSG and placebos, their reactions were not from MSG. Even though such logic is highly questionable, we now know subjects reacted to placebos because of the presence of aspartame that causes MSG-type responses in MSG sensitive people. Because of the disclosure of the use of aspartame in placebo material by Jack Samuels, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, in its July 1995 report on the safety of MSG in food, concluded the use of aspartame in placebo materials was inappropriate. FDA you knew this for 25 years and did nothing.
 
CONCLUSION:
FDA you must remove aspartame from the market immediately. Dr. James Bowen's letter to FDA twenty years ago remains as accurate today. He stated aspartame is mass poisoning of the American public and more than 70+ countries of the world. Today its over 100. He also stated: 'the only responsible action would be to immediately take aspartame off the market, fully disclose its toxicities, offer full compensation to the injured, public and criminally prosecute anyone who participated in the fraudulent placement of aspartame on the marketplace.http://www.dorway.com/drbowen.txt

Why would you allow a product once listed with the pentagon in an inventory of prospective biochemical warfare weapons submitted to Congress? http://www.mpwhi.com/ecologist_september_2005.doc

It destroys whole families because of damage to the hypothalmus and mitochondria causing male sexual dysfunction and ruination of  female response. It blinds, destroys babies, triggers seizures and causes sudden death. Athlete Charles Fleming died of methanol poisoning.  His autopsy showed the chronic methanol poisoning for years. His physician asked his wife to call the police because he was unaware that aspartame does this. Diane Fleming took 3 lie detector tests and passed, a Sunday school teacher. Yet, she was convicted and remains in a Virginia prison taking the rap for aspartame manufacturers who caused the death of her husband. http://www.namastepublishing.co.uk/Diane%20Fleming%20Story%20.htm

She should be freed immediately. Aspartame is an imminent health hazard and based on the evidence of its deadliness reported must be removed.  It's approval was not by science but political chicanery.  FDA themselves originally asked for the indictment of Searle and revoked the petition for approval .http://www.wnho.net/dr_olney1.doc

Yet FDA has turned down every petition for ban having given their loyalty to aspartame manufacturers and betrayed the public trust.

Subject: China executes FDA leader
Dear readers, China knows how to deal with FDA corruption. Yesterday, China's leaders announced the execution of their former top FDA official, who was caught accepting over $800,000 in bribes from drug companies. It's interesting that accepting bribes in China is punishable by death while accepting bribes in the USA is punishable by promotion to the head of the FDA. Whoever is the most corrupt shall be put in charge of America... http://www.newstarget.com/021874.html
