- Aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal/Spoonful,
E951, Benevia, Canderel, etc.) is an excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic
drug that interacts with all drugs and vaccines. http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_interacts.htm
Because it's an actual chemical poison it causes polychemical sensitivity
syndrome or MCS, so even if victims get off this toxin they often think
they are allergic to other things, react to genetically engineered products,
and synthetic sweeteners which are toxins themselves like Sucralose (Splenda)
a chlorocarbon poison. http://www.wnho.net/splenda_chlorocarbon.htm
These are toxic, not allergic reactions.
- Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D.,
author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills on aspartame and MSG, and
Health & Nutrition Secrets To Save Your Life, described the toxic effects
of aspartame: "Aspartame, an L aspartyl L-phenylalanine methyl
ester, is composed of two amino acids, aspartate and phenylalanine, linked
by methanol. Inside the gastrointestinal tract, especially in the
stomach, it's broken down into its constituent components. In some
instance the dipeptide is lysed within the cells of the gut. As a
consequence the methanol is rapidly absorbed and distributed throughout
the tissues of the body. Within the tissues, substantial amounts
of methanol's two metabolic breakdown products (formaldehyde and formic
acid) have been shown to accumulate in many tissues."
- If ever a toxin completely defiled the
body it's aspartame. Dr. Blaylock elaborated on the breakdown products
of formaldehyde and formic acid, which have been shown in several important
studies to be extremely toxic to tissues in very small doses. "A
study by Trocho, Pardo and co-workers demonstrated following aspartame
ingestion, significant amounts of formaldehyde accumulate in the tissues.
Formaldehyde is known to bind strongly to proteins and nucleic acids, forming
adducts that are extremely difficult to eliminate through normal metabolic
pathways. In this study, they demonstrated labeled methanol (as formaldehyde)
accumulated in high concentrations in the liver (50%) and in lower, but
substantial, concentrations in the kidney, adipose tissue, brain and retina.
Within the cell, they found large amounts located within the DNA.
It was interesting to note these doses were lower than that used in toxicity
studies. Previous studies have shown that very high doses of aspartame
may not cause acute symptomalogy. This study indicates the damage
may necessitate longer periods of time to manifest itself, and that the
eventual effects can be quite deleterious."
- The 1998 Trocho Study done in 1998 proved
that those who consume aspartame are pre-embalmed. H. J. Roberts,
M.D. in his 1038 page medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored
Epidemic, confirms this pre-embalming on page 675. He says:
"Inferences by funeral directors about the "pre-embalming"
of persons who had been heavy aspartame consumers initially evoked considerable
- "But this theme kept surfacing.
One experienced undertaker literally warned his family against using diet
sodas after repeatedly detecting the deposition of formaldehyde crystals
deposited in the organs of such individuals. Some funeral directors
even insisted on closing the caskets of persons who had consumed large
amounts of aspartame because formaldehyde seeped through the skin."
- Dr. Roberts said this issue has religious
ramifications. Jewish law forbids embalming because it considers
prompt burial a sign of respect for the deceased. He describes the
carcinogenic mechanisms on page 798, the diketopiperazine aspartame
derivative has been incriminated as a tumor-causing chemical. Aspartame
triggered brain tumors and brain cancer in original studies, also other
tumors: mammary, ovarian, pancreatic, thyroid, testicular and uterine.
- Further religious ramifications: Jehovah's
Witnesses refuse blood transfusions because Acts 15:29 says to "keep
abstaining from blood" and Leviticus 17:10 prohibited eating "any
sort of blood". The Jewish prohibition was carried over to the
Christian congregation. So the fact that aspartame causes blood disorders
is a serious one. Witnesses do not smoke since it defiles the body.
Aspartame does too. Many people no longer take blood transfusions
because of disease spread through the blood such as AIDS and hepatitis.
Today there is an Institute of Bloodless Surgery in Norwalk, California.
The late Ron Lapin, M.D. founder of this Institute was nominated for the
Nobel Prize by several countries and also developed the cautery scalpel
so patients would not bleed in surgery.
- That Aspartame causes leukemia was proven
by the Cancer Research Center of the European Foundation of Oncology and
Environmental Sciences in Bologna, Italy in July. This was an impeccable
three-year study on 1800 rats to evaluate the potential carcinogenic effects
of aspartame. Aspartame also induced an increase in lymphomas. Dr.
H. J. Roberts had written about lymphoma in an article titled: Does Aspartame
Cause Human Brain Cancer? published in the Journal of Advancement in Medicine
- Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D.
commented: "The new study released in the European Journal of
Oncology by Morando Soffritti and co-workers should terrify mothers and
all those consuming aspartame sweetened products. This was a carefully
done study which clearly demonstrated a statistically significant increase
in several types of lymphomas and leukemias in rats. Both of these
malignancies have increased significantly in this country since the widespread
use of aspartame."
- He said further, "This study confirmed
the previous study by Dr. Trocho and co-workers, which also found the formaldehyde
breakdown product of aspartame to be damaging to cellular DNA and that
this damage was accumulative. This type of damage was a duplicate
of that associated with cancers. Along with the most recent study,
this means that drinking a single diet cola sweetened with aspartame every
day could increase one's risk of developing a lymphoma or leukemia."
- In this study only rats fed aspartame
developed malignant brain tumors. We are taking brain tumor case
histories for litigation in New York and New Jersey. These states
have a three year statute of limitations.
- Dr. Blaylock said children and pregnant
women drink the most diet colas, so children are at the greatest risk of
developing one of these horrible diseases. The study found that even
low doses of aspartame cause these malignancies, yet the higher the dose,
the more cancers that were seen.
- It seems inconceivable the FDA would
allow this deadly chemical on the market without even a warning for pregnant
women. Aspartame is also an endocrine disrupting drug causing infertility,
and a teratogen causing birth defects and mental retardation. Dr.
James Bowen wrote that aspartame murders infants and violates the Federal
- Books by Doctors Roberts and Blaylock
describe many degenerative diseases. Dr. Blaylock relates:
"Aspartame has been shown by several studies to damage DNA, which
can lead to cancer and degenerative brain disorders later in life.
The risk of increased brain tumors in such a child would be enormous.
Similar mechanisms of damage would be expected in these with liver disease.
Studies on aspartame safety have shown that the product increases tumors
throughout numerous organs, especially the brain. It was shown that
brain tumor incidence increased over 47 times in animals exposed to aspartame."
- Further, Dr. Blaylock accused:
"With the public concern over childhood obesity and diabetes few are
being told of the overwhelming evidence that early exposure of excitotoxins
as found in aspartame consistently produce gross obesity and insulin resistant
diabetes, just as we are seeing in our youth. The promoters of aspartame
use have been lying from the beginning and continue to use their money
and political clout to cover up the real and present dangers of this toxic
- In a September 2005 conference in Italy
Dr. Soffritti added kidney cancer and cancer of the cranial peripheral
nerves to his study, and announced that aspartame is a multipotential carcinogen.
This obligates the FDA to invoke the Delaney Amendment, which states a
product producing cancer in animals cannot be put in food.
- In the meantime, a member of Parliament,
Roger Williams, has demanded a ban in the UK. On March 31 Holland
Sweetener, the largest manufacturer of aspartame in Europe reported they
will discontinue producing this chemical.
- Robin Goodwin, Mission Possible Falklands
petitioned for a ban and wrote every resident of the Falklands to quit
using aspartame. Here's his letter to the Environmental Improvement Board
in New Mexico in August 2005:
- "I'm writing to you directly from
the Falkland Islands in the south Atlantic in support of the campaign by
Mr. Steven Fox: Stephen@santafefineart.com to have aspartame removed
from New Mexico. I know that while I personally do not live in New
Mexico, we too are also suffering from this unnecessary poisoning of which
two of my family are living proof.
- "My wife suffered for many years
with daily blinding headaches that nearly led her to suicide because she
could not cope with the severity of the pain. Our doctors continuously
misdiagnosed her problem and even though she was also having black outs
and vision loss to name just a few of the problems, these doctors fed her
many varied cocktails of medication and even thought she was paranoid.
The real problem was not finally noticed until she tried to get a driving
license. She failed because of bad eyesight, which had just been
tested three days previous. So after a second test a specialist was
flown in from the United Kingdom who diagnosed she was indeed suffering
from a brain tumour.
- "She had emergency life threatening
surgery on the 10th December 2002 and a tumour of 7 centimetres in diameter
was removed. We still did not fully understand why she developed
this tumour then, but just recently we received an interesting piece of
information from a friend who felt that our daughter who is 18 years 9
months may benefit from the information it contained, because she suffers
- "Our daughter has suffered severe
epileptic attacks at night since she was just 3 days old. I personally
have had to tend her for as many as five times a night for that whole time
until I received the information on aspartame. I was stunned at which
might possibly be causing these attacks, more so that our doctors for all
these years had never even mentioned to me that such a possibility of food
additives such as aspartame, which I had not even heard off, so decided
there and then to remove all known products with aspartame from our home.
There were many products containing this poison, which we were all consuming
on a daily basis.
- "Since we stopped the aspartame
intake. Our daughter has not had a single seizure for the last 2
consecutive weeks. This is incredible and clearly demonstrates that
it is the aspartame that has been causing all the problems. Because of
this I have now began a serious awareness campaign on the Falkland Islands
to get our Government here to legislature to have this dangerous product
banned. My government is now meeting to discuss this issue and I
am keenly awaiting the outcome.
- "So you see even though we are
some eight thousand miles away from your country aspartame is also poisoning
our people There are at least 3 recorded cases of brain tumours in our
tiny population of just 3,000 people. There is likely many more.
Many others have died from unexplained causes. There is also a major
increase in the number of cancer related illnesses. Our Falkland
Islands children alone are drinking vast quantities of Diet Coke and Pepsi
Cola. Both products are known to contain aspartame."
- Stephen Fox petitioned the New Mexico
Environmental Improvement Board and the Board of Pharmacy to ban aspartame
and wrote a bill for the New Mexico legislature. A letter was submitted
to Governor Bill Richardson signed by ten Senators asking for New Mexico
to be declared in a state of public medical emergency. Governor Richardson
can now ban aspartame in New Mexico if he chooses. Dr. H. J. Roberts
met with Governor Richardson in West Palm Beach who admitted it should
be banned. Aspartame violates state and federal adulteration statutes,
and therefore violates interstate commerce laws. Stephen Fox has
written to Heads of Nations sending them the documentary, Sweet Misery:
A Poisoned World, which features physicians explaining the dangers of this
poison. www.amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
- ASPARTAME AND OTHER BLOOD DISORDERS:
- Dr. James Bowen wrote more about the
blood disorders. "Anciently, autoimmune anemia was a mystery
because auto-immunity itself was not understood. So this mysterious
breakdown of blood cells, and resultant anemia, was called "Lupus
Erythematosis", the red wolf of the blood, which was supposedly devouring
the red blood cells and causing anemia. With the advent of immunology
as a science, the immune system was recognized as the "wolf".
- "Lupus Erythematosis is now often
caused by aspartame, which triggers the immune system into an autoimmune
status by altering the body's proteins with formaldehyde, which denatures
them, and by damaging the bodies genes with agents like formaldehyde and
formic acid (fire ant poison), which is a chromosomal shattering agent.
- "The immune system is thus confused
by the denatured proteins, and defocused because the immune system's own
genetic make up is disrupted, defocusing it. The false memories induced
in the immune system by the Aspartame denatured proteins are permanent,
because the immune system couldn't even function without a lifelong memory.
- "Aspartame engendered autoimmunity
often results in CHz (Chemical Hypersensitivity disease), whereby other
chemical insults that rough up any body protein, even just a little, can
trigger the whole autoimmune attack. People with CHz can have violent
autoimmune attacks triggered by concentrations of chemicals, which are
far too low for normal people to even notice. So millions of times
lower concentrations of a chemical than would be toxic to anyone else can
trigger a disastrous reaction in those afflicted with CHz. You would
not need to ever again be exposed to Aspartame once it engendered lupus
in your body. Exposure to a large variety of autoimmune insults would
ever after cause your Lupus to recur, and many other autoimmune disasters
could also come your way from CHz.
- "It's the very nature of CHz to
defocus the immune system further and further, so a wider and wider variety
of chemical/immune insults will trigger a wider and wider pattern of immune
damage. What started as the blood picture of Lupus Erythematosis
could go on to include diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, arthritis,
and polymalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome, for example. This is typically
what does happen once CHz is initiated in your body by Aspartame.
In addition to an ever-wider array of chemical insults, fungal sporulations,
and pollen blooms become unmitigated disasters instead of minor nuisances.
- "The final metabolic end products
from aspartame include formic acid and carbon monoxide. Formic acid,
even in minute concentrations, also ties up the hemoglobin molecule just
like cyanide and carbon monoxide do, so the hemoglobin in your red blood
cells cannot pick up oxygen and carry it into your body.
- "The direct chemical and metabolic
effects of aspartame, also causes acidosis of the blood. Methyl alcohol
poisoning from aspartame ingestion leads to severe acidosis. This
terminates in multiple organ failure in the human body, with heart failure
and fatal shock finally ending the life of the aspartame victim in many
instances. Christina Onassis, Patty Crane, Charles Fleming whose
wife, Diane is now in prison because aspartame killed her husband with
typical findings of methanol poisoning, and she was blamed for it, are
some well known examples. Diane Fleming's husband often played basketball
and was a body builder. It is well known that athletes are at great
risk of sudden cardiac death because of aspartame:
- Diane Fleming can be seen in the aspartame
documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, interviewed from
her Virginia prison. Several physicians have written affidavits that
Charles Fleming died from aspartame after reviewing the autopsy.
Diane passed a lie detector test and was the one who called the police
because the physician did not know the source of the methanol. Who will
help her now?
- "Carol Hamm was a close friend
of mine and she was also an aspartame addict. WE would play cards
together several times per month. I watched her go rapidly downhill
as the days passed. She would look me right in the eye as she drank
her diet pop. She was conveying her thoughts, "Dr. Bowen, I
know you don't think I should not be drinking this, but I am just going
to satisfy my addiction anyway, come what may." What came was
that a few nights later, she didn't show up for the card game.
- "Her daughter, Debby asked around
and found that no one had even seen her mom outside the house that day.
She called the police in alarm, and said "Dr. Jim would you go over
there with them?" We found Carol lying dead in bed with bloody
fluid running out of her mouth. The autopsy report was "Pulmonary
edema, cause unknown", just like Christina Onassis, Patty Crane and
Charles Fleming. In Diane Fleming's case, the prosecutor convinced
the jury Diane had to have been the one to poison her husband with methanol,
because no one at the trial knew that aspartame is a highly synergized
- "A larger appreciation of the toxicity
of aspartame is needed so that it can be recognized for the poison that
it is. At least you know to keep it completely away from your body.
" James Bowen, M.D.
- Aspartame not only has religious ramifications
but racial as well. Dr. Bowen says that the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiments
were chickenfeed compared to boosting the Sickle Cell crisis. He
says aspartame enhances the disease, and makes it more deadly and murderous!
A dagger in the heart of the black race. This is how it does the
deadly deed: A third of the aspartame molecule digests into wood
alcohol, CH40. The alcohol next loses 2 hydrogens to be the undertakers'
friend: formaldehyde. CH20! Add an oxygen and its formic
acid, the venom of fire ants which can kill a person a million times larger,
also known as formate! CH202. Formate is a "blister poison"
that kills and runs, transferring cell-to-cell, killing as it goes, leaving
blisters of dead tissue. It destroys the deformed sickle hemoglobin
cells reducing the sickle cell count, but it amplifies the disease inciting
a sickle cell crisis.
- Read Dr. Bowen's entire report on aspartame
and the sickle cell crisis titled "Murdering Blacks With Aspartame":
- ASPARTAME AND CHILDREN:
- Dr. John Olney who founded the field
of neuroscience called excitotoxicity wrote to the FDA Board of Inquiry
explaining how it would damage the brains of our children.
The FDA agreed and revoked the manufacturer's petition for approval.
It was Don Rumsfeld who said he would call in his markers and get it approved
anyway. James Turner, Atty, explains in the film Sweet Misery:
A Poisoned World exactly how he did it. Here is the clip:
- Unfortunately, Dr. Olney's prophecy
has been fulfilled as our schools are filled with children with ADD, ADHD,
Tourettes and behavioral problems. Aspartame can trigger autism just
as the mercury in vaccines does, and aspartame reacts with vaccines.
- Schools are greatly concerned about
the epidemic of obesity and diabetes. Aspartame and MSG both induce
obesity. A 2005 study by Sharon Fowler of the University of Texas
linked diet drinks to obesity, and we know that aspartame makes you crave
carbohydrates so you gain weight. Further, the formaldehyde accumulates
in the fat cells, and damages the liver so it's hard to lose weight.
As diabetic specialist, H. J. Roberts writes, aspartame can precipitate
diabetes, simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy,
destroys the optic nerve and even interacts with insulin. Many schools
do not know this. The following letter was given to the Alabama Board
of Education but they left diet and aspartame soda pop in some grades:
They also received the study linking diet drinks to obesity, an epidemiological
study with 8 years of data.
- To solve this problem the Idaho Observer
which publishes the Artificially Sweetened Times, 24 page brochures on
aspartame for distribution, is preparing one for schools, pediatricians
and OB-GYN physicians. Aspartame has damaged a generation of children,
and this effort is our project to Save The Children until the poison is
completely off the market. It should be available by the end of April
- We ask that this paper be distributed
worldwide, especially to hematologists, pediatricians and those affected.
