- Marketers invest great treasure in the trademarks and
product names they strive to fix in our memories. Very rarely do they change
them. Can you imagine McDonalds changing to Happy Hamburgers, or Rolls
Royce becoming Rugged Roaders?
- On the other hand, con-men do it all the time, changing
names as they do their socks to hide bloody histories. They set up legitimatesounding
front organizations, too, the better with which to rob us again.
- A tsunami of bad publicity and ground root outcry has
destroyed the public acceptance of the and sales are in the toilet. Netherlands
producer, Holland Sweetener closed its doors and in the USA Merisant, went
bankrupt a year ago for $230 million. Aspartame set an all time high in
volunteered consumer complaints to the USA's Food and Drug Administration
(FDA), which once published a list of 92 reactions to it including 4 types
of seizures, blindness and death. Yahoo lists 7 million aspartame sites,
- The very word "aspartame" is a curse, as consumers
know the devastation, disability and death this wicked chemical brings
to innocent consumers.
- What to do? What to do?
- Juliet had the answer: She cooed to Romeo: "'Tis
but thy name that is my enemy O, be some other name! What's in a name?
that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet; So Romeo
would, were he not Romeo call'd, retain that dear perfection which he owns
without that title. Romeo, doff thy name, and for that name which is no
part of thee take all myself."
- Aspartame Set to Change its Name
- Someone at Ajinomoto, Japanese maker of the poison, has
read Frankenstien Foods.
- AMINO SWEET
- What will it take to make you sit up and listen?
- "A new technology. A new food group. Amazingly,
the next time you read "artificial flavor" on a food label, you
should be aware that a component of that new genetically engineered food
additive may be embryonic kidney cells from aborted human fetuses..."

- Shakespeare, so they'll now call it AminoSweet. With
that alias, again they intend to fool us, sicken us and murder us. They
will have to buy enough advertising, bribe enough phoney "experts"
and use corrupt front organizations to endorse their junk. Crime will march
on and aspartame, not to be called aspartame, will retain that dear toxicity
which it owns without that title.
- Dr. H. J. Roberts, world famous author of over 25 books,
reports in his encyclopedic 1,038 page work, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored
Epidemic, on the treatment of hundreds of aspartame victims in his practice,
and lists lupus, MS, diabetes, seizures, migraines, rashes, sexual dysfunction,
blindness and dozens of other reactions to the multiple toxic breakdown
chemicals resulting from aspartame consumption. Discussing the name change
the doctor explains: "The inference is erroneous, it's the methyl
alcohol that sweetens aspartame, not the amino acids."
- FDA LISTED 92 ADVERSE SYMPTOMS FROM ASPARTAME
- The last time the Food & Drug Administration published
their list of aspartame reactions was in 1997, the reports where submitted
voluntarily by victims in America, the results can be read in the 14 page
document from the FDA see here: http://www.mpwhi.com/92_aspartame_s ymptoms.pdf
Over ten thousand complaints were tabulated which reported 92 different
vile consequences from consuming the chemical, including death. Since that
year the FDA has not updated their aspartame report, and now denies it
- Now the FDA, dominated by the chemical-pharmaceutical
industry, will not take any aspartame complaints. Washington D.C. consumer
attorney James Turner, who with the renowned Dr. John Olney, battled to
prevent the original approval of aspartame, stated: "Ajinomoto adds
further to the deceitful record about aspartame calling it AminoSweet.
It is twice deceptive. One: the amino acids have nothing to do with sweetness,
and Two: they are trying to hide from aspartame's despicable record of
safety hazard and political dishonesty."
- The eminent and award winning Dr. Mirando Soffritti of
the Italian Ramazzini Institute, which is devoted to cancer research, conducted
in 2005 and 2007 aspartame studies using over 2,000 rats. (This cost a
LOT of money!) The clear and undeniable conclusion, in Dr. Soffritti's
own words was "Aspartame is a multi-potential carcinogen."
- Famous Dr. Leonard Coldwell, author of 14 medical texts,
declares: "They sold us aspartame as a sweetener, knowing it causes
cancer and an endless variety of neurological diseases and countless symptoms.
They greedily inflicted a known poison on the world of fellow humans, murdering
them. Now that their crimes are known, they change the name of their profitable
toxic concoction. It's Genocide!"
- Today it's well known that aspartame has a methyl ester
that immediately converts to free methyl alcohol as it's metabolized. The
Trocho Study in Barcelona in 1998 exposed the fact the formaldehyde converted
from the methanol, embalms living tissue and damages DNA. Dr. Alemany said
the NutraSweet Company tried to assassinate his character when this study
- The methanol is such a serious issue today that when
Ajinomoto set up the AminoSweet web page, they completely left off the
methanol. In the meantime, Proposition 65 in California states, "that
any product coming into this state with methanol or formaldehyde must carry
a cancer warning." You can see why Ajinomoto wants to change the name
and leave out the methanol issue.
- The UK Aspartame Awareness Campaign (UKAAC), has accused
the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) of failing in their duty to protect
the health of the British people, by approving aspartame - which contains
10% methanol - in the UK market for use in food, at levels which UKAAC
calculate to be 35 times higher than is safe. Jim McDonald of UKAAC commented;
"Methanol is a severe metabolic poison and the only safe amount for
a human to consume is ZERO.
- Some unfortunately believe free methanol to be the same
as natural methanol from fruit and vegetables, which our bodies can handle
- METHANOL POISONING
- Natural methanol is always accompanied by an inhibitor,
usually ethanol or pectin which interrupts the metabolism of the methanol
to give the body time to eliminate it, a simple non-scientific verification
of this is; If natural methanol did not have inhibitors, all vegans would
soon be very, very ill from methanol poisoning.
- The methanol from aspartame has no inhibitors and is
therefore undeterred from following its destructive metabolic pathway which
is - methanol > formaldehyde > formic acid - It is the formaldehyde
and formic acid which cause tissue damage and methanol poisoning.
- The UKAAC has called to the FSA for
- 1) The immediate banning of methanol from the food chain.
- 2) All GPs and medical professionals to be made aware
of the possibility of their patients suffering from methanol poisoning."
- Dr. Woodrow Monte who wrote the journal article Aspartame:
Methanol and the Public Heath said: "Methanol may be natural, common
and chemically placid. It may have many convenient friends and protectors
but this belies its true nature. Methanol is a Trojan Horse Pages 50-74.qxd
28/03/2010 23:27 Page 51 Namaste Vol.11 Issue 4 http://www.namastepublishing.co.uk
which harbors the cause of some of our most tortuous maladies.
- Methanol begets formaldehyde which changes to formaldehyde
hydrate, a two headed monster capable of altering, in degrees imperceptible
to our healing arts, the very stuff of which we are made, a change that
only nature can know."
- Jim McDonald of the UK Awareness Campaign together with
representatives of Mission Possible UK and Mission Possible France had
a meeting with Food Standards over the issue of this deadly free methyl
alcohol and the allowable daily intake. Then came the experts on the methanol
in aspartame with more damning information incorporated into this report
to FS: http://www.mpwhi.com/statement_for_fo od_standards_october_2009.htm
- Aspartame and Neotame
- Aspartame is also an adjuvant like squaline and mercury
in vaccines. All adjuvants cause the same things, MS, lupus, ALS, autism,
etc. These are very serious problems with aspartame.
- Now we have approved, another aspartame product. I sent
the formula to Dr. Jeffrey Bada. In reports he did on aspartic acid and
phenylalanine, two ingredients of aspartame, he stated that when they are
heated you have the conversion to the dangerous D amino acids. Dr. Bada
called me after looking at Neotame's formula and stated: "All the
aspartame people did was scramble the formula." There you have it
- don't consume it!
- You would think things couldn't get worse but Ajinomoto
seeks FDA approval for a new sweetener. It's called Derived from the same
amino acids as aspartame and vanillin which have been shown to interact.
bulk-polyols/Ajinomoto-seeks- FDA-approval-for-new-sweetener Here is information
on the interaction and you can also look at the studies on Google: http://www.holisticmed.com/aspartame/
aspart.p4 is a substitute for natural vanilla produced synthetically as
a by-product of the paper industry and treated with chemicals. Often when
reading ingredients, where you expect to see Vanilla, you will see Vanillin.
You can Google Vanillin with aspartame and note how often it is combined.
One woman had serious neurological problems and thought she wasn't using
aspartame until she realized the Vanilla coffee was in reality, vanillin
with aspartame, but only the Vanillin was labeled.
- Senomyx - NEW Genetically Engineered Food
- To add insult to injury, we have other additives on the
market, many of which have safety hazards of their own. Here's a new one
If MSG wasn't bad enough, this new one is a flavor enhancer. The FDA says
it will be under artificial flavors and does not have to be labeled. Robert
Cohen who performed research in the 1970's on the hormonal effects on the
brain and behavior has investigated the new horror Senomyx and wrote: "We
are witnessing the dawning of a sci-fi food revolution. A new technology.
A new food group.
- Future foods will need no salt, sugar, or artificial
sweeteners. Instead, sensory perceptions will become warped by modern science.
Brains will taste things that are not really there. Illusions. Deceptions.
- Memories of taste which are now artificially induced.
- Foods of the future will contain "flavor enhancers"
which fool human taste buds into perceiving the sensations of sweetness,
sourness, saltiness, and bitterness.
- By combining cloned human embryonic kidney cells with
human adeno-virus. How far into the future will these new biotech wonders
appear in our food supply? The next time you read "artificial flavor"
on a food label, pause to consider what you've read here today.
- Senomyx is presently developing new products with many
of the world's largest food manufacturers including Campbell's and Coca
Cola. In fact, if you eat Nestle's foods, your taste buds are being artificially
stimulated by biotech products developed by Senomyx. You may now know what
you are eating, but I take this opportunity to paraphrase 17th century
author Miguel Cervantes, who wrote in Don Quixote: "'The proof is
in the pudding.'" http://www.mpwhi.com/senomyx_being_ added_to_sucralose.htm
Read Dr. James Bowen's entire report at http://www.wnho.net/splenda_chlorocarb
- To be safe do not eat processed foods. In the movie Sweet
Misery: A Poisoned World, the producer interviewed Diane Fleming, in prison
serving 30 years for poisoning her husband with methanol. Yet, this Pages
50-74.qxd 28/03/2010 23:27 Page 52 Sunday school teacher took three polygraph
tests and passed them all. The police seized a sealed gallon of windshield
cleaner, a methanolbased solvent, and used it as the basis of his case.
- A test was done to see if the Gatorade her husband drank
contained some of this methanol from the glass cleaner. Negative! But no
written report was presented to the jury, otherwise Diane would have been
acquitted. The detective who investigated told me personally that she was
innocent and if he hadn't been promoted and removed from the case, he would
have stopped the indictment.
- Several physicians wrote affidavits that Charles Fleming
died of aspartame. Then along came a toxicologist and said the actual cause
of death was creatine, which Fleming mixed at triple the recommended concentration
in his drink. Creatine produces a toxic reaction with aspartame.
- Diane's trial lasted but a single day, her defense attorney
was incompetent, and so she has been in prison for 6 years and there no
more appeals. Some TV networks want to interview her but the warden has
forbidden interviews. We need all the help we can get to free this innocent

- Special Tribute to DR Betty Martini, D.Hum Activist Extrordinare
- The Namaste Team have been worked with Betty for 12 years,
during which time she has become a great friend and source of inspiration.
Betty flew to England twice to lecture on aspartame. On one occasion, she
was met off the plane and detained for three hours without charge by British
immigration at Gatwick airport. Someone had signalled ahead of her arrival
and warned immigration. They took her papers and began questioning and
cross-examining her about who she was going to meet, how many activists
there were, where she had got her money from to do her campaigning, to
which she promptly replied; "My husband's pension."
- Eventually, she was taken to a doctor to be checked out,
they had noticed she was taking medication. The doctor took one look at
the book she was carrying "Aspartame Disease a World Epidemic"
by Dr John Roberts and the truth of the whole story flowed out. Betty wasted
no time in educating the doctor who was horrified as he was also a consumer
of aspartame. Upon which he told immigration to let her go!
- During all the years we have known her, Betty has never
once given up on her crusade to eradicte from the world this deadly toxin,
marketed as a sweetner, known as aspartame. Betty's rise to fame began
when she spoke at the World Enviromental Conference.
- Anonymously someone published a letter on the internet
entitles the Nancy Markle Story - the story of the World Enviromental Conference
as though the author were Betty Martini. This letter got emailed round
the world. As a result, Betty recieved so many emails from sufferers who
previously had no idea what was causing their symptoms, the sheer volume
crashed her computer.
- Betty unlike anyone we know, has dedicated her to what
she sees as her duty to expose aspartame and stop the misery that it is
casuing so much suffering throughout the world.
- Thanks to Betty and her voluteers all around the wolrd,
the warnings of aspartame's true identity has been revealed. So much so,
the inevitaable result is, those who have intended to create harm, have
now RENAMED aspartame as AMINOSWEET and, not only that, they have brought
out other toxic sweeteners.
- Dr JH, Roberts writes:
- "...Without the dedication, tenasity and magnitude
of Betty's heart and unwavering strength many, including ourselves, have
got to know about the poisons that have, in our view, been deliberately
laced in our food and drink.
- In l970 Betty Martini established a model for the American
nation by creating Physicians on Call, a network of five Emergency Care
clinics in Atlanta, Georgia, staffed with medical doctors 24/7. Services
were without cost to the indigent people. With a deep interest in traumatology
she worked to build a trauma center in her mother's name, Eve Geller, who
lost her life to breast cancer, unfortunately this did not materialize.
She ran for Mayor of Atlanta in l973.
- May 1996, The Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients,
I wrote: "I presumed to have known the nature of consumer "activists"
from encounters with several remarkable persons of this genre...but Betty
Martini of Atlanta proved the ultimate prototype for such involvement.
- A Roberts' Angel Betty first surfaced - or more accurately,
bubbled up - during 1994 when she joined the ranks of "Roberts' Angels."
This term, a takeoff on the television series Charlie's Angels, was concocted
without my knowledge by two "Angels" in Dallas and Chicago who
attempted to warn the public about the potential hazards of products containing
the chemical sweetener, aspartame. This tribute reminded me of the line
in Hamlet: "A ministering angel shall my sister be."
- Betty initially confined her activities http://www.namastepublishing.co.uk
Namaste Vol.11 Issue 4 Pages 50-74.qxd 28/03/2010 23:27 Page 53 Namaste
Vol.11 Issue 4 http://www.namastepublishing.co.uk to assembling "kits"
of literature detailing the hazards of aspartame. These contained copies
of more than a dozen articles and letters published in various journals,
periodicals, and my position statements dealing with the potential complications
of aspartame products in persons with diabetes and hypoglycemia, pregnant
women and young children.
- Betty also produced flyers on the subject and personally
distributed thousands of them to any-and all interested persons. Concomitantly,
she managed to get April declared as "Anti-Aspartame Month" in
- I found it difficult to judge the motives for these multilateral
activities by a unique personality who drew a martini glass with bubbles
alongside her signature. Moreover, Betty's engaging next-door-neighbor
behavior, coupled with a delightful Southern accent, captivated members
of the media to a degree I had never observed.
- I finally concluded that Betty's determined efforts were
totally altruistic and constructive...rather than reflecting an ego-boosting
search for fame or the promotion of some product. She seemed to embody
President Clinton's remark about the great need for a love standard rather
than a gold standard. As a physician-researcher who had not received a
cent for my studies, I was sensitized to these matters.
- In the process, I also became intrigued with this Atlanta
native who had evolved into such a formidable self-propelled whistle-blower.
Indeed, someone had given her the "thorn in the side" award of
the tongue-incheek National Association of Goodness (NAG).
- First Encounter: I first met Betty in Hollywood, Florida.
She was preparing to fly there, at her own expense, in order to visit the
and asked me to meet her there. I had no idea what this enterprise was
- The facility proved to be a converted store that displayed
dozens of health related features, photos and exhibits. All underscored
dubious decisions made by the FDA that the museum's founders regarded as
improper...and on occasion, schizoid.
- The FDA also arbitrarily refused to approve Stevia, a
natural sweetener long consumed throughout the world by diabetics and persons
- Betty acknowledged that many considerations influenced
FDA policy in these matters, some of which escaped her as a lay person.
But she had seen enough to be convinced that consumers needed lots more
corporate-neutral input and help. I had no inkling about the enormous energy
and wide scope of this short blond dynamo until she went into high gear
in two realms.
- One was involvement with aspartame, described below.
The other concerned the injection of synthetic growth hormone into cows
for the purpose of increasing the supply of milk, even though no shortage
existed. This product was made by the Monsanto Chemical Company...by coincidence
the corporate parent of The NutraSweet Company.
- Betty was shocked by the ramifications of recombinant
bovine growth hormone based on an enormous amount of information she had
already gathered. One aspect pertained to the increase of insulinlike growth
factor, which might be carcinogenic. She proceeded to enlist concerned
persons all over the globe in this venture of righteous indignation.
- Atlanta Encounter I was to receive an honorary fellowship
from the American College of Physicians in Atlanta during March 1995. When
Betty and here husband Don learned of this forthcoming visit, they suggested
that I meet some of their friends involved in ...more intriguing bait.
- This sojourn reinforced the impression of a remarkable
woman. Some hallmarks included: great cook, a devoted wife and mother,
a conscientious bible teacher (2-3 times weekly), a lover of cats (especially
Arbuckle) and a one-of-akind advisor to neighbors and friends.
- An eager student of cancer and cancer therapy resulting
from her personal battle with breast cancer - a fact heretofore unknown
to me. I delved into Betty's previous activist background as subtly as
possible. She had run for Mayor of Atlanta in 1973 against Maynard Jackson
Betty had established "Physicians on Call," a program that provided
quality emergency medical services on a 24 hour basis. Jimmy Carter, then
Governor of Georgia, wrote her: "I'm proud of what you're doing."
- She had attempted to establish a state-of-the-art hospital
for trauma in Atlanta. Unfortunately, Betty encountered stiff resistance
from the medical community.
- She had single-handedly exposed fraud in Georgia's insurance
industry. Betty placed a 10-foot-high and 50 foot-wide billboard near the
State Capital that cost $3,500 a month. It contained her lament about the
huge increase in health insurance rates, including her own. The billboard
- The message was signed, - an obvious swipe at the company's
trade mark, the Rock of Gibraltar. These efforts culminated in sweeping
reforms of the State's insurance laws.
- Betty indulged in highly-effective humorous tactics during
her battle against Prudential. They would be utilized in subsequent campaigns
against aspartame and bovine growth hormone. She devised a consumer-protest
scum remover that carried the label: "Prudiculous Scum Remover: Combats
Premium Schemiums, Kitus Blarneyitis and Pestilential Prudentialitis."
The latter referred to "a deadly plague spread by an infection agent...the
only cure is cancellation."
