- For 30 years, aspartame (AminoSweet, Equal, NutraSweet,
Spoonful, Canderel, E951, Benevia, etc.) has caused sickness and death
in 100 countries.
- In the beginning, the FDA tried to get G. D. Searle indicted
for submitting fraudulent studies that did everything from filtering out
the neoplasms to excising brain tumors, and putting dead rats back in the
study and resurrected them on paper. This failed because the lawyers for
the manufacturer hired the two federal prosecutors.
- Next the FDA Board of Inquiry revoked the petition for
aspartame approval. Don Rumsfeld, CEO of the manufacturer, G. D. Searle
Co. called in his political markers to get aspartame on the market anyway.
Rumsfeld was close to Ronald Reagan and the night after his inauguration
Reagan had upright FDA Commissioner, Jere Goyan, fired. Then he appointed
Arthur Hull Hayes as FDA Commissioner.
- Hayes over-ruled the Board of Inquiry and let slip the
hounds of disease, disability and death on an unwarned innocent world population.
- Immediately, the devastations began: MS symptoms, lupus,
loss of vision, brain tumors, migraines, confusions and a rampage of ADD,
ADHD, autism, birth defects and psychiatric problems. Diabetics complained
of blood sugar being out of control, confusion and convulsions. In 1985,
Monsanto bought G. D. Searle. Senator Howard Metzenbaum called for congressional
hearings, which Senator Orin Hatch fought to prevent. Finally, there were
hearings in 1985 & 1987. Hatch took money from Monsanto, and Metzenbaum's
bill which would have put a moratorium on aspartame until NIH did independent
studies died in committee.
- This whole nasty story is in the documentary, Sweet Misery:
A Poisoned World. Hear Attorney James Turner, explain in this clip: http://www.soundandfury.tv/pages/rumsfeld.html
- H. J. Roberts, M.D., in a 1990 press conference warned:
"I think it would be a tragedy if this issue is ignored since we could
be inviting disastrous medical, psychological and neurological problems.
I hope I'm wrong. But let's look at the problem NOW instead of in five
or 10 years when we might be having a medical plague on our hands."
- They should have listened. By 2001 the world plague
was obvious and Dr. Roberts released his 1000 page medical text: Aspartame
Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, <http://www.sunsentpress.com/>www.sunsentpress.com
Aspartame is a disease because the symptoms are predictable and there is
a pattern. This would have been avoided had they listened to Dr. Roberts,
He should be nominated for the Nobel Prize, not only for trying to prevent
this epidemic but for writing the medical text that would teach other physicians
and the public where so much sickness, drug interaction and death originated,
and the mechanism by which aspartame causes such horrendous disease.
No drug is safe for someone consuming this poison because it damages the
mitochondria interacting with drugs and vaccines. Aspartame is also an
adjuvant, immune stimulator, causing the same reactions as other adjuvants
cause like Squalene: ALS, MS, lupus, autism and other horrors.
- For Aspartame Awareness Weekend we want to concentrate
on the diabetic because aspartame has magnified this epidemic. Dr. Roberts,
a diabetic specialist, in the medical text states that aspartame not only
precipitate diabetes, but it simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy
and neuropathy, destroys the optic nerve, causes diabetics to go into convulsions,
and interacts with insulin. The free methyl alcohol aspartame releases
causes diabetics to lose their limbs.
- Dr. Ralph Walton, psychiatrist, in writing to the legislature
when a ban aspartame bill was introduced in Hawaii, said, "Over the
ensuing years I have continued to see the multiple neurologic and psychiatric
consequences of aspartame use. It can lower the seizure threshold and lead
to an incorrect diagnosis of epilepsy, with subsequent inappropriate prescription
of anticonvulsants. It can mimic or exacerbate symptoms of MS, it can paradoxically
produce carbohydrate craving and weight gain. The world-wide epidemic of
obesity and type 2 diabetes obviously has multiple causes, but I am convinced
aspartame is a major factor."
- Dr. Bill Deagle says: "Most people when asked how
Aspartame is made do not have the first step of understanding. While an
E.R. doctor and primary care physician in Augusta, GA in 1987 and 1988,
I was told a number of interesting facts about the adjacent Aspartame factory.
Bacteria with genes inserted generate a sludge which is centrifuged to
remove the aspartame and many hundreds of contaminant organic and amino
acids are present. We were told not to report illness or worker's compensation
issues for fear of being fired by the hospital, now the Augusta Regional
Medical Center. Many of their employees presented with psychiatric, neuropathy
conditions, chronic fatigue and organic cases of loss of cognitive function.
This powder from the dried sludge was then transported for packaging in
factories elsewhere in the US, before sale as Equal and now the myriad
of names of this neurotoxin." Bill Deagle, M.D.
- In 1995, we were visited by Mary Lee Herron, who told
us: "William Reed, back in Michigan, is dying. They don't think he
will live through the day. " I asked what he was dying from and she
- "He's having 6 or 8 seizures a day that can't be
stopped." I asked if he was diabetic, using aspartame, having MS
problems, dizziness, and vision problems. "Why yes", she responded.
"How did you know?" I told Mary Lee to call him immediately
and get him off the NutraSweet/Equal. She said, "but he might be
dead". Finally, I heard her say to him, "William, Betty says
you don't have to die, get off the NutraSweet." She went off to Florida
and by the time she had returned he no longer had seizures. They had stopped
within three days. She stood in the door and said, "Betty, do you
realize if I had not stopped in Atlanta, William would be dead?!"
- Now let's go forward 15 years. My husband just returned
from Michigan where he met William Reed, still alive, and his lovely wife
who could have been a widow. His surprised physician wrote a report of
this deliverance. The doctor had not known how deadly aspartame is and
what reactions it produces. What happened to William 15 years ago is
no doubt happening to other diabetics everywhere. In 2004 the American
Diabetes Assn had a RICO suit filed against them for pushing aspartame
in diabetics with full knowledge. NutraSweet funds them. They got out
of it with their power and continue to betray diabetics by pushing this
addictive, excitoneurotoxic, carcinogenic, genetically engineered drug
and adjuvant. This comes under Title 18, Section 1001 of the criminal
code, which is what they originally used when FDA tried to have the manufacturer
- Unfortunately many people refuse to listen. This is
the story from Jeanette Soto, Mission Possible Brookville, Florida whose
husband went blind on aspartame. She is the author of 'Blinded Sight.'
- TO EMBALM...OR NOT TO EMBALM
- "My father-in-law, Santiago ("Chago")
Echiverria had spent his last 15 - 20 years of his life battling diabetes.
He moved from Ashtabula, Ohio
- (where he had retired from the Railroad), to Anasco,
- For years "Chago" drank Equal in his many daily
cups of coffee, and of course NutraSweet in his cold drinks.
- "When we received word of his death in June of 1994,
we made arrangements immediately to fly to Puerto Rico for the funeral.
- Upon arrival, we were told that because of the large
content of formaldehyde in his body, they immediately had to close the
casket for it was seeping through his skin.
- "His sister, Minerva Ortiz and Nydia Colon, told
me that the funeral director said he had never seen a body deteriorate
as quickly, and was
- puzzled by the formaldehyde content even before embalming.
- "Knowing what I know about the chemical components
of aspartame, I believe Chago died, not of diabetes, but from the formaldehyde
- of his years of consuming aspartame through Equal and
- "Should you want to corroborate this report, you
can do so by calling Nydia Colon in Ashtabula, Ohio. Chago was her father.
- "One other report I received regarding the formaldehyde
content from diet drinks was from an engineer who works in my office.
His wife is an RN
- at a hospital in Florida. Working with me, her husband
has received much information on the adverse reactions to aspartame, which
- take home for his wife to read.
- "One particular night, she arrived home and told
her husband that I had been right about aspartame's adverse effects. She
said a patient had died because of diet drinks? Puzzled and inquisitive,
she asked the doctor what he meant. He said that this particular patient
had a high level of formaldehyde in his body. He continued to explain
that this gentleman had stored cases of diet drinks in his garage, and
because of the chemical breakdown in diet drinks when the temperature rises,
he felt that those drinks, which had set for a lengthy period of time in
his hot garage, had indeed contributed to his death.
- "When the story was related to me, I was again incensed
at a governmental agency that is not doing their job to protect innocent
victims, only because of greed!
- "If you are drinking diet drinks....STOP NOW!
- --Jeanette Soto, Mission Possible "Brookville, Florida
- In 1998, the Trocho Study in Barcelona by Dr. Maria Alemany
confirmed that aspartame embalms living tissue and damages DNA.
- When you damage DNA you can destroy humanity.
- What did the aspartame industry have to say? They simply
attempted to assassinate Dr. Alemany's character. Continually as independent
studies show the problems the aspartame industry tries to rebut their findings
but fail. With the Ramazzini Studies rebutted by the European Food Safety
Authority, Herman Koeter resigned but not before confessing "We were
pressured by industry to hijack science."
- When Lane Shore became Mission Possible Chicago he told
about his cancer and other problems from aspartame and that his diabetic
wife was having all kinds of problems. She had worked for NutraSweet and
couldn't believe they would allow it on the market if it did these things.
No amount of documentation would convince her because as she admitted
she was addicted. The free methyl alcohol, classified as a narcotic causes
chronic methanol poisoning. This affects the dopamine system of the brain
and causes addiction. She has suffered cardiomyopathy. http://www.wnho.net/cardiomyopathyfromaspartame.htm
- First, she lost her feet and then her legs. She has
had several operations on her eyes, is addicted to it and gives it to
her children who now have problems of their own.
- Last night in an emotional conversation Lane told me:
"I've already lost 8 people in my family from aspartame and I'm desperately
trying to protect my children. We must get this removed from the marketplace."
- Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, and author of Excitotoxins:
The Taste That Kills, <http://www.russellblaylockmd.com/>www.russellblaylockmd.com
stated "excitotoxins such as that found in aspartame can precipitate
diabetes in persons who are genetically susceptible to the disease."
He also states: "With the public concern over childhood obesity
and diabetes, few are being told of the overwhelming evidence that early
exposure to excitotoxins (as found in aspartame) consistently produce gross
obesity and insulin resistant diabetes, just as we are seeing in our youth."
- Studies worldwide link aspartame to the problems it causes.
The award winning Italian Ramazzini 3 year study on 1,800 rats concluded
that Aspartame "is a multipotential carcinogen."
- How does Aspartame affect the pancreas in diabetic patients?
- Roberts suggests, "There can be several outcomes.
First, patients might be making too much insulin and can have severe hypoglycemia
(low blood sugar) attacks. Aspartame can release almost as much insulin
as glucose. It has been known for many years that oral and intravenous
phenylalanine and other amino acids cause marked elevation of insulin.
In my books, I go into this in great detail. On the one hand, we are talking
about the stimulation of more insulin and hypoglycemia. Further study is
needed to determine whether, over the long term, this will over stimulate
the islets that make insulin. The other aspect is the diabetogenic state
and loss of diabetic control through various mechanisms that include the
wasting of insulin, the impairment of glucose transport, the increase of
the growth hormone and glucagon, and perhaps blocking insulin receptors."
- Why does Aspartame seem to aggravate diabetes?
- Dr. Roberts states "Some of the reasons/mechanisms
Aspartame might aggravate diabetes and hypoglycemia includes the following:
- * Marked changes in appetite and weight as reflected
by paradoxic weight gain or severe loss of weight.
- * Excessive insulin secretion and depletion of the insulin
- * Possible alteration of cellular receptor sites for
insulin, with ensuing insulin resistance -Neurotransmitter alterations
within the brain and peripheral nerves
- * The toxicity of each of the three components of aspartame
(phenylalanine; aspartic acid: the methylester, which promptly becomes
methyl alcohol or methanol), and their multiple breakdown products after
exposure to heat or during prolonged storage."
- What can be done to protect the pancreas from Aspartame?
- Roberts states "that Aspartame products should be
taken off the market because of my belief that this artificial sweetener
is an imminent public health hazard. I have stated this recommendation
to Congress and have mentioned it in many articles and texts."
- FDA LAW: Are their laws the FDA must follow when a product
becomes an imminent health hazard? Absolutely!
- In 2002, I filed a Citizens Petition for Ban: http://www.wnho.net/citizens_aspartame_petition.htm
- The law is that the FDA must answer in 180 days. It
has been 8 years and they refuse to answer. So in 2007 I added an amendment
based on an imminent health hazard. http://www.wnho.net/amendment_to_citizens_petition.htm
This must be answered in a week or ten days. The FDA has ignored it.
- Finally, last year Michael Delaney who said he was with
the FDA called. I asked why they had not answered this imminent health
hazard petition? He said: "It ain't going to happen." I said,
"By law, it must be answered in writing. Furthermore, people are sick
and dying the world over." He answered: "We have to depopulate!"
- If you don't want your family depopulated help us on
this Aspartame Awareness Weekend by writing your congressman or sending
him this paper. Also, make sure he has a copy of this letter to the GAO:
http://www.mpwhi.com/open_letter_to_the_gao.htm If you're an aspartame
victim or have someone in your family who is be sure to tell the story
and send us a copy.
- The FDA wants more power, so to protect Big Pharma, most
of whose drugs are lemons, according to a report this week. Congress needs
to act alright in making the FDA serve within the law with the power they
possess. We ask all Citizens to participate in Aspartame Awareness the
weekend. Take some time to save your life, and the lives of your family
and friends. We are dealing with the greatest scandal in American health
history, and an epidemic that could even spread further with the Codex
agreement, as they have refused to ban it. Print out this email and post
it to your congressman, at least do that. This epidemic cannot afford
apathy. The next person to die from aspartame may be in your family.
Lane Shore has lost 8 members of his family.
- I say to mothers who have children in school, please
forward our Report To Schools to your Board of Education, Principal, teachers
and pediatrician: http://www.mpwhi.com/report_on_aspartame_and_children.htm
Remember you have no control over what is fed to your children if you
don't take this step.
- When boarding a plane, give the pilots this warning:
- Remember, your life is in the hands of the pilots, and
they too testified before Congress. Mission Possible Aviation was formed
when Cliff Evans crashed his plane while on aspartame, but lived to tell
about it. He came to Atlanta and asked us to help pilots to understand
the hazards and prevent this from happening to them. Six heavy users of
aspartame on American have died, one in flight drinking a diet pop. Take
seriously what Dr. Blaylock says about aspartame and sudden cardiac death.
Wonder why the athletes are dropping dead? Read his Athlete Alert and
Dr. Roberts paper on arrhythmias and sudden death:
- http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_msg_scd.htm and http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_and_arrhythmias.htm
- They don't even have to be embalmed because the aspartame
industry is responsible for their pre-embalming: http://www.mpwhi.com/formaldehyde_from_aspartame.pdf
This is also discussed in Dr. Roberts medical text.
- Don't go from poison to another poison, Splenda. Dr.
James Bowen says if they go from aspartame to Splenda, a chlorocarbon poison,
they can maintain the reactions to aspartame and pick up those from Splenda.
This is because of chemical hypersensitization. Dr. Bowen wrote this
paper: The Lethal Science of Splenda: http://www.wnho.net/splenda_chlorocarbon.htm
- Particular warning to diabetics: Researchers found that
diabetic patients using sucralose showed a statistically significant increase
in glycosylated hemoglobin, a marker that is used to assess glycemic control
in diabetic patients. According to the FDA, "increases in glycosolation
in hemoglobin imply lessening of control of diabetes." Citizens for
Health and D.C. Attorney James Turner filed a petition with the FDA to
- Acesulfame potassium (Sunett) Dr. H. J. Roberts wrote
that it stimulates insulin secretion in a dose-dependent fashion, thereby
possibly aggravating reactive hypoglycemia. He also wrote it apparently
produced lung tumors, breast tumors, rare types of tumors in other organs
such as the thymus gland, several forms of leukemia and chronic respiratory
disease in several rodent studies, even when less than maximum doses were
- Be particularly alerted that many times in gum they will
blend all these sweeteners. Aspartame works like nitroglycerin under the
tongue, goes through saliva straight to the brain. A safe sweetener is
Just Like Sugar which is receiving awards for its safeness. No additives,
just food. It has chicory which has been used for 70 years to improve
the health of diabetics, Vitamin C from organic oranges, Calcium and orange
peel. It can be gotten at Whole Foods and on line at http://www.justlikesugarinc.com
- Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., has written three
times in the Blaylock Wellness Report: "Finally a safe sweetener."
So, there is an alternative for diabetics!
