- The European Parliament has adopted resolutions in line
with its consistent drive to make sure that foodstuffs and drinks consumed
in the EU are safe. It has called for an investigation of aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal/Canderel,
E951, Spoonful, Benevia, etc.)In a document from the European Parliament
it says the justification is that "the use of aspartame increases
the exposure to its metabolites methanol/formaldehyde and phenylalanine
and is reported to provoke i.a. headaches, nausea and allergic reactions,
especially in the case of vulnerable persons. Its widespread use should
therefore be re-evaluated by the Commission and the relevant scientific
committees, taking into account all available data and respecting the precautionary
principle. A historical evaluation is required as there seems to be evidence
that original studies did not prove the safety of aspartame."
- There is also a call for proposals to improve the labeling
of products containing aspartame and Parliament wants the new directive
to be implemented in the Member States within a year of its entry into
force. They are concerned about a lack of warning labels for pregnant women
and children's health. Rightly so since aspartame is an abortifacient
and a teratogen. It also stimulates prolactin. It is an endocrine disrupting
chemical. It changes the menses triggering infertility. Then if the
consumer is off aspartame and gets pregnant she may lose the baby if she
gets back on it. As James Bowen, M.D., in Aspartame Murders Infants
(www.dorway.com) says: "At every point in the fertility process aspartame
destroys, beginning with the gleam in Mom and Pop's eyes: it ruins female
sexual response and induces male sexual dysfunction. Beyond this aspartame
disrupts fetal development by aborting it or inducing defects. And if
a live child is born aspartame may have heinously damaged the DNA of the
baby, cursing future generations." The manufacturer and the FDA have
steadfastly refused to put a warning on aspartame even though they have
full knowledge of how it can destroy the fetus or trigger birth defects.
Louis Elsas, M.D., Pediatric Prof, Emory University, genetics testified
before Congress on this issue and this is on web along with H. J. Roberts,
M.D., position paper admitting that even a man consuming aspartame at conception
can cause birth defects in his own child.
- Why does the FDA refuse this warning? The law requires
that an additive be inert or non-reactive. Admitting that aspartame can
destroy the fetus or inflict horrendous birth defects show that aspartame
is not an additive but a deadly neurotoxic drug. It interacts with just
about every drug used to treat the problems it causes, and probably if
investigated which show that no drug is safe on the market today because
when you add a chemical poison it interacts. The allergies mentioned by
Parliament are probably in reality related to the fact that aspartame is
a chemical hypersensitization agent so those who have used this deadly
toxin have interactions with vaccines, toxins, GM foods and other unsafe
so-called additives like sucralose (Splenda) which has a chlorinated base
like DDT and can cause auto-immune disease and acesulfame potassium which
triggered cancer and leukemia in original studies. Parliament has called
for a review of sucralose and aspartame-acesulfame salt use within three
years as well. Russell Blaylock, M.D., author of Excitotoxins: The Taste
That Kills, www.amazon.com says in a lecture on www.dorway.com that the
reactions to aspartame are not allergic but toxic like arsenic and cyanide.
In his new book Health and Nutrition Secrets To Save Your Life he says
all it takes is one diet drink to cause significant DNA damage. There
is a chapter on bioterrorism that everyone needs to read. Dr. Blaylock
is a neurosurgeon and specialist in bioterrorism.
- The famed John Olney, M.D., who founded the field of
neuroscience called excitotoxicity, and who did the studies on aspartic
acid (40% of aspartame), testified to the Board of Inquiry of the FDA and
explained what would happen to the brains of our children if aspartame
was approved, and the Board agreed saying not to approve aspartame. This
report and the entire Board of Inquiry report stating aspartame is not
safe can be read on www.greatfallspro.com, Mission Possible Maine.
- Understand there is no reason for aspartame to be on
the market. It may be sweet but it is a sweet poison. In Nutrapoison
by Alex Constantine on www.dorway.com he states that aspartame was listed
with the pentagon in an inventory of prospective biochemical warfare weapons
submitted to Congress. It also has a synergistic effect with such things
as MSG, another excitotoxin (www.truthinlabeling.org), fluoride and RBGH,
for starters. It is not a diet product but a drug that makes you crave
carbohydrates so you gain weight. See protest of the National Soft Drink
Association on DORway. This is part of the Congressional Record and shows
you the pop companies knew aspartame was a poison before they put it in
pop and admitted it broke down at 86 degrees and quoted the law that stated
it is a crime to put anything in food that decomposes or adulterates the
- Aspartame Disease has been declared a global plague by
world expert H. J. Roberts, M.D., F.A.C.P.,F.C.C.P., who has treated aspartame
victims in the trenches of medical practice for 20 years. In the l980's
a medical publication selected Dr. Roberts as the best doctor in the US.
He is listed in Who's Who in America, Who's Who in The World and Who's
Who in Science and Engineering. As a diabetic specialist he realized aspartame
was a toxin when his diabetic patients began going blind, becoming confused
and blood sugar would not stay under control. He says in a position paper
on aspartame and hypoglycemia that aspartame can precipitate diabetes and
even interacts with insulin. No doubt that aspartame is the cause of the
epidemics of diabetes and obesity.
- Dr. H. J. Roberts has now provided to the world a medical
text on this plague titled Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, www.sunsentpress.com
or www.aspartameispoison.com to see the cover. It was written for consumers
as well as physicians. Because the FDA and the manufacturer has lied
to the public it has tied the hands of physicians who do not correlate
the vast epidemics aspartame has triggered with the toxin and cannot treat
the patient without the facts. There is a chapter on drug interaction,
detoxification and tips for the physician. The entire story of how a chemical
poison was marketed for human consumption is in this medical text. And
there is a chapter on all the epidemics and symptoms, giving the mechanism
by which aspartame triggers these problems. On this web site are also many
other excellent books on aspartame.
- There are some things that have been proven beyond a
shadow of a doubt over the past 20 years and that is that aspartame triggers
brain tumors (breaks down to diketopiperazine a brain tumor agent) that
triggered brain tumors in original studies and cases come in to Mission
Possible consistently, and DNA damage. This alone shows you aspartame
is not inert and should be banned from the planet immediately. It destroys
the central nervous system and mimics MS and causes Lou Gehrig symptoms.
The FDA lists on their report 92 documented symptoms triggered by this
toxin. This brings us to the Gulf War Illness. The government has been
told repeatedly what aspartame causes, and that it breaks down at 86 degrees.
Vets say that diet drinks stayed on pallets for as long as 8 weeks at
a time and the troops drank them all day long. Their problems are identical
to Aspartame Disease and match the FDA report of symptoms triggered by
this toxin. A study on Desert Storm Syndrome showed Lou Gehrig symptoms
and the payments to the troops have been reimplemented. And haven't we
said that all along. James Bowen, M.D., is a victim himself and suffers
with Lou Gehrigs symptoms. He was never in the Persian Gulf but practiced
in the dessert drinking gallons of Diet Koolaide laced with aspartame.
He wrote the FDA (on web under experts) and told them aspartame was mass
poisoning of the American public and more than 70+ countries of the world.
The FDA sent out an agent who was upset with Dr. Bowen that he wrote the
paper titled labeling, and did not want to accept records on another 30
- If you read the secret trade information volunteered
in congressional hearings and on on web you will note that Searle admitted
in the last paragraph that they had to consider almost complete conversion
to DKP, (the brain tumor agent) and if they told the FDA they wouldn't
approve it. Be assured this is premeditated murder. Searle did studies
in South America and never published them, sacrificing people in poor villages.
Some died, some developed brain tumors and others seizures. These studies
showed that aspartame destroys the brain and central nervous system and
even hardens the synovial fluids causing agonizing joint pain, many times
diagnosed as fibromyalgia. The affidavit of the translator is on web.
- Aspartame is the biggest hazard there is to Aviation.
It is a seizure triggering drug that interacts with anti-seizure medication.
So many pilots have lost not only their health but their occupation. Five
American Airline pilots who were heavy users of aspartame have perished,
one in flight. Two have had strokes, one just recently. The FAA here says
the FDA approved it, there is nothing we can do. That's a cop out, they
could warn the pilots. Seizures have been established beyond a shadow
of a doubt. See the RAO on web which was pivotal in the approval aspartame,
a 52 week oral toxicity study where 7 infant moneys were fed aspartame,
5 had grand mal seizures and 1 died. The FDA report list 4 types of seizures
triggered by this neurotoxin. Could it get worse. Yes, aspartame damages
the cardiac system and causes sudden death. It triggers an irregular heart
rhythm and interacts with all cardiac medication.
- My special note to Parliament: My congratulations for
your caring enough and for your courage in taking on the aspartame issue.
How was it approved in Europe? Searle knew in order to rubberstamp it
around the world they had to get it approved in another country, and if
Europe found out about the FDA wanting them indicted for fraud it would
not happen. So they made a business deal with a Professor Paul Turner
in the Regulatory Agency (Food Standards) in England. There was a big blow
out by Parliament when they found out it was approved but it wasn't rescinded.
The story was in the Guardian.
- Remember there is a war going on and the troops are already
sick again according to a new article. I see them chewing gum and wonder
if it has aspartame, in this fashion going directly to the brain. They
are using breath mints and I'm checking to see if the pop companies again
sent diet drinks knowing what happened last time. And all this post stress
reported remember that aspartame also depletes serotonin because of the
50% phenylalanine which as an isolate is neurotoxic, lowers the seizure
threshold and serotonin. This triggers manic depression, anxiety, panic
attacks, hallucinations, suicidal tendencies, insomnia, etc. One aspartame
brain tumor victim told me when she was in a support group in San Antonio
there were 70 vets with brain tumors. And while there are toxins in Iraq
understand that aspartame destroys the immune system and many might not
be affected except for aspartame. Dr. Blaylock wrote a brochure on how
to survive bioterrorism. He told me consumers could not sustain chemical
warfare because excitotoxins have destroyed the immune system. And, of
course, aspartame interacts with all toxins.
- I've lectured in the UK twice and seen the diseases and
symptoms that mirrors those in the US from aspartame. This last summer
I was locked up by Immigration for 3 1/2 hours with their wanting to know
if they allowed me in England how many people would find out about the
dangers of aspartame. They confiscated all books on aspartame and materials
although in the end they gave them back. Who was responsible for this?
Industry is very powerful, I ask that you now be affected by their propaganda
and their power.
- You have the ability to undo what was done by this business
deal with Paul Turner, now deceased. You can ban it from Europe and the
result would be like dominos around the world. Don't let one more baby
die before it breathes the breath of life! I am happy to address Parliament
if you so desire and answer any questions. All the records of the FDA
showing aspartame to be a poison are available in England for any members
of Parliament wanting to see them. Some of these records are on www.dorway.com
In America there are already Aspartame Detoxification Centers to help
victims. The formaldehyde accumulates in the cells and damages DNA with
most toxicity in the liver. This is pre-embalming as mentioned in the
medical text on the global plague of Aspartame Disease.
- Do not fail to read the UPI investigation on web and
find out just who called in their markers to get a deadly chemical poison
marketed for human consumption. You'll be surprised. Aspartame is addictive
and methanol is classified as a narcotic. And when industry lies and tells
you there is just a little bit of methanol remember in molecular chemistry
the formulation is one molecule of aspartic acid to one molecule of methanol
to one molecule of phenylalanine.
- I flew to Belgium and gave these FDA records the EU had
never seen to Miguel-Angel.Granero-Rosell and Peter Wagstaffe. I knew
they would side with industry but told them repeatedly that they had to
care. Obviously they didn't when they put out their report leaving out
the most damning reports like those by Dr. Roberts. I showed them the
medical text about the size of the New York phone directory. I showed
them the flawed studies and what industry did like when Monsanto tried
to show aspartame doesn't trigger seizures. In the Rowan study they gave
16 of the 18 subjects anti-seizure medication and didn't tell anybody and
only gave them one capsule of aspartame for a one day study, tantamount
to smelling the bottle. But they sided with industry and we have a 59
page report in rebuttal showing what they did.
- I asked them why they outlawed Stevia and was told there
were no studies showing safety. Stevia is a herb which has been used in
Brazil for thousands of years, especially to aid diabetics because it helps
in the metabolism of sugar. I told them we have about 500 studies showing
safety where did they want them sent. No answer. They didn't want them
available. While this is just hearsay when Stevia was outlawed in Europe
and it is the salvation of the diabetics, I did receive a call from England.
He said he worked with Monsanto and they were responsible. Read Larry
Hagman's comment on web and how as a diabetic it saved his life.
- Aspartame was marketed by Searle and then sold to Monsanto
in l985. It has now been sold to Ajinomoto,Childs in Boston, Merisant (investment
firm, Monsanto managers) and Michael Dell's investment firm. We are now
taking case histories for class action starting with the brain tumors,
seizures, eye deterioration and blindness.
- I filed a Citizens Petition with the FDA for recall before
I left America for England. The law requires six months to answer. It
has now been ten months. It was based on the fact that their records show
aspartame to be a chemical poison and they lie to the public about safety.
Their own FDA toxicologist told Congress that aspartame violated the Delaney
Amendment because without a shadow of a doubt it can cause brain tumors
and brain cancer. Delaney Amendment forbid putting anything in food you
know will cause cancer. It also triggered mammary, uterine, ovarian, thyroid,
pancreatic and testicular tumors. His last words to Congress were "And
if the FDA violates its own law who is left to protect the public?"
This is the reason for Mission Possible Intl, a global unpaid volunteer
force warning the world off this poison. Many operations in the UK. He
also mentioned that because of the brain tumors that an allowable daily
dose should not be able to be set. As it was it was set for rats and not
humans. You cannot set an ADI of safety of poison for humans. The other
FDA toxicologist, Dr. Jacqueline Verrett, told Congress that all studies
were built on a foundation of sand and should be thrown out. Be sure you
read my letter to Ajinomoto on web who have lie to the public and what
really happened during approval. They refuse to answer the letter.
- Europe can be heros to the world, and I pray to the Almighty
Sovereign of the universe, Jehovah God for his holy spirit to help in
this endeavor to save the planet from this deadly poison, aspartame.
