- 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 I was there to lecture on exactly that subject.
- When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees
F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME coverts 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
- In the case of systemic lupus, we are finding it has
become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially Diet Coke and
Diet Pepsi drinkers. Also, with methanol toxicity, the victims usually
drink three to four 12 oz. 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
- When we get people off the aspartame, those with systemic
lupus usually become asymptotic. 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 drinkers, had all been diagnosed
with MS. This is beyond coincidence. Here is the problem.
- There were Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was
originally included as a sweetener 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
- At the time of this first hearing, people were going
blind. The methanol in the Aspartame 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
- 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
- Their physicians could not get the blood sugar levels
- Thus, the patients suffered acute memory loss and eventually
coma and death. Memory loss is due the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine
are neurotoxic without the other amino acids found protein. Thus it goes
past the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the neurons of the brain.
Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, said, "The ingredients stimulates
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
- 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 Aspart ame, knows how deadly it is.
- They fund the American Association, American Dietetic
Association Congress, and the Conference of the American College of Physicians.
The New York Times, November 15, 1996, ran an article on how the American
Dietetic Association takes money from the food industry to endorse their
- 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 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 servicemen 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
- According to Dr. Louis Elsas, Pediatrician and Professor
of Genetics, at Emory University, In his testimony before Congress. The
phenylalanine concentrates in the lacenta, causing mental retardation.
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 FDA for years, the FDA 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
inneurological 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 several 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.
