Critical Information for Pilots - Aspartame Pilot Alert
by Dr. Russell Blaylock, Neurosurgeon

By Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum.

First, here is the Aspartame Pilot Alert by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D.  It will also contain letters from pilots and from the congressional record.  We don't publish letters from pilots because even if they get off aspartame and get well they won't be able to fly ever again if they have had an aspartame seizures and aspartame is a seizure triggering drug.  Worse they add aspartame in anti-seizure information.  Pilots have to have good sight and the free methyl alcohol causes everything from optic neuritis and macular degeneration to blindness. Off aspartame if vision is in the wet stage sight usually will return.  ,.  I've alerted hundreds who were blind and had their sight return. aspartame_alert_with_letters. htm

Here is the FDA's list of 92 symptoms: aspartame_symptoms.pdf

A pilot called about young Delta pilots getting cancer as they drank Diet Cokes and wanted our Pilot Alert.  The reason they commit suicide is mostly because of them drinking diet soda.  The serotonin can be depleted as much as 74% says a study and that causes psychiatric and behavioral problems and suicidal tendencies. aspartame-depletes-brain- neurotransmitters/

When six American pilots died from aspartame I wrote a poem:

By Betty Martini

Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome aboar
American Roulette Flight 504
Thank's for betting your lives on us
Some safety tips I must discuss

Of course you know you may not smoke
So we'll be serving Diet Coke
Or Diet Pepsi, take your pick
Says FDA:  they'll make you sick

Ten thousand complaints on aspartame
They posted the list, and then, insane
They made it a general sweeten'er
Could travesty be more completener?

Migraines, convulsions and chronic fatigue
Blindness, depression do you really need?
They lie and say their poison is "diet"
Don't believe it and don't ever buy it

Cries FDA, "It's harmless as rain!
Forget the citizens who complain
Ignore that tumor in your brain,
And birth defects from aspartame"

It vends at eighty dollars a pound
Boundless booty Rumsfeld found
An aspartame addict quite soon you will be
Buying cases of pop to your grocer's glee

To stack in the garage at 90 degrees
Where temperature raises toxicity
Formaldehyde cocktails there will brew
To blind you and bid your brains adieu

Mental confusion, panic attacks
Hypertension, yes, and heart attacks
We're happy you're on our airplane thing
See our pilot dancing on the wing?

His name is Captain Billy Keno
Nonstop service Phoenix to Reno
Or Seattle or someplace way out there
If he's able to find it from the air

Fourteen pilot magazines, all
Name vertigo, seizures grand mal
Listed many deadly incidents
From NutraSweet, Equal, sugarless mints

Poison potion, our bosses knew
Their mortal gamble is me and you
It's the political thing to do
Who cares for safety, crew, or you?

Betting hundred million dollar planes
On deadly drug, dissolver of brains
Refusing to ken when the captains died
The verdict is simply Aspercide

Here is the FDA report of 92 symptoms:

Occasionally a pilot will give us permission to publish so here's an example.  Captain Fred Fox is our representative for Aviation Safety and flew American for 35 years:

  Dear Betty,

  Thank you for taking my call today and discussing your efforts to remove aspartame from the marketplace.  I realize these efforts take  time and money, so I have enclosed a donation toward the financial end.

Several years ago I did an Internet search on the 'health effects of  diet coke', and that is how I found it was the aspartame causing  my health problems. That information saved my life and pointed me  down the long road of recovering my health.  Here is a brief summary  of my story with aspartame.

  I drank (mostly) diet cokes for about 15 years ending in 2004.  During that time I estimate I consumed about 15,000 diet  sodas. Over the years I experienced progressively worse symptoms that included headaches and migraine type headaches, brain fog,  memory loss, dizziness, depression, fatigue, mental and emotional stress and finally sudden onset hypogonadism. The onset of  hypogonadism is most often association with chemotherapy or other  types of toxic exposure.  I have no doubt mine was from the aspartame  toxicity.  For several months I was only able to function out of bed  for about 3 hours a day until the doctors finally diagnosed the low testosterone levels.  I was also put on anti-depressants because the doctors didn't know what else to do.  It was about a year later that  I found out about the aspartame and stopped poisoning myself.  Today,  I still deal with the effects of acute chemical sensitivity and seem  to lose many days of productivity because of that.

  have done several detoxification programs over the last several  years and have found some things that seem to work.  I did the Hubbard sauna detox course (28 straight days of sauna & vitamins)  which allowed me to get off of the anti-depressants and feel much  better.  I still sauna on a regular basis after exposure to chemicals - lately that was my reaction to some house paint.

  I have tried Dr.  Blaylock's list of supplements but then ended up going with some  supplements recommended by a local naturopathic physicians after some  extensive testing.  I did find some glycine and gluthamine  supplements to be very helpful and previously I did some liver detox supplements that also helped.

  For me the most incipient thing about aspartame was the slow  progression of the symptoms over time from repeated exposure - I  thought the symptoms had more to do with stress and didn't realize  how bad they were since they got worse a little at a time.  I lost  hundreds of days of productivity and have since spent thousands of  dollars on medical expenses.  During the time I was experiencing the  aspartame effects I operated vehicles and flew small aircraft in a  condition that was just downright dangerous.  I feel very fortunate  that I did not injure or kill myself or others as a result.  However,  I have no doubt that thousands of accidents have happened across the country as a result of aspartame toxicity.  

Betty, you have my sincerest gratitude for your incredible commitment to educate people about the dangers of aspartame and to remove it  from the marketplace.

So save a pilot's life today.  Before you fly always give a copy to the pilots and flight attendants  I have a smile on my face when I think of Paul Scavone giving a copy to the Captain and was immediately promoted to a business class seat.  The FAA has an official position they can do nothing about it because the FDA approved it, not understanding the FDA approval was through political chicanery. Unofficially they do warn pilots.  I discuss pilots in this lecture: v=_cuAvEIkJto    In "Sweet Remedy"  you will see Captain Fred Fox who is our representative for Aviation Safety.  Our pilot hotline is 770 242-2599.  You can find out how it was approved in "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World" v=toKyRlpmG7A    Here is a lecture I did and went into the pilot issue: v=_cuAvEIkJto
