- I have spent several days lecturing at
the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on "ASPARTAME marketed as 'NutraSweet',
'Equal', and 'Spoonful"'. In the keynote address by the EPA, they
announced that there was an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic
lupus, and they did not understand what toxin was causing this to be rampant
across the United States. I explained that I was there to lecture on exactly
- When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds
86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME coverts to formaldehyde and
then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. (Formic acid
is the poison found in the sting of fire ants). The methanol toxicity mimics
multiple sclerosis; thus people were being diagnosed with having multiple
sclerosis in error. The multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, where
methanol toxicity is.
- In the case of systemic lupus, we are
finding it has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially
Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. Also, with methanol toxicity, the victims
usually drink three to four 12 oz. Cans of them per day, some even more.
In the cases of systemic lupus, which is triggered by ASPARTAME, the victim
usually does not know that the aspartame is the culprit The victim continues
its use aggravating the lupus to such a degree, that sometimes it becomes
life threatening. When we get people off the aspartame, those with systemic
lupus usually become asymptomatic. Unfortunately, we can not reverse this
- On the other hand, in the case of those
diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, (when in reality, the disease is methanol
toxicity), most of the symptoms disappear. We have seen cases where their
vision has returned and even their hearing has returned. This also applies
to cases of tinnitus.
- During a lecture I said "If you
are using ASPARTAME (NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.) and you suffer
from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs,
cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression,
anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss -- you
probably have ASPARTAME DISEASE!" People were jumping up during the
lecture saying, "I've got this, is it reversible?" It is rampant.
Some of the speakers at my lecture even were suffering from these symptoms.
In one lecture attended by the Ambassador of Uganda, he told us that their
sugar industry is adding aspartame! He continued by saying that one of
the industry leader's son could no longer walk - due in part by product
- We have a very serious problem. Even
a stranger came up to Dr. Espisto (one of my speakers) and myself and said,
'1Could you tell me why so many people seem to be coming down with MS?11
During a visit to a hospice, a nurse said that six of her friends, who
were heavy Diet Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond
- Here is the problem. There were Congressional
Hearings when aspartame was included in 100 different products. Since this
initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, but to no avail.
Nothing as been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets.
Now there are over 5,000 products containing this chemical, and the PATENT
- At the time of this first hearing, people
were going blind. The methanol in the aspartame converts to formaldehyde
in the retina of the eye. Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of
dmgs as cyanide and arsenic-- DEADLY POISONS!!! Unfortunately, it just
takes longer to quietly kill, but it is killing people and causing all
kinds of neurological problems.
- Aspartame changes the brain's chemistry.
It is the reason for severe seizures. This drug changes the dopamine level
in the brain. Imagine what this drug does to patients suffering from Parkinson's
Disease. This drug also causes Birth Defects.
- There is absolutely no reason to take
this product. It is NOT A DIET PRODUCT!!! The Congressional record said,
"It makes you crave carbohydrates and will make you FAT". Dr.
Roberts stated that when he got patients off aspartame, their average weight
loss was 19 pounds per person. The formaldehyde stores in the fat cells,
particularly in the hips and thighs.
- Aspartame is especially deadly for diabetics.
All physicians know what wood alcohol will do to a diabetic. We find that
physicians believe that they have patients with retinopathy, when in fact,
it is caused by the aspartame. The aspartame keeps the blood sugar level
out of control, causing many patients to go into a coma. Unfortunately,
many have died.
- People were telling us at the Conference
of the American College of Physicians, that they had relatives that switched
from saccharin to an aspartame product and how that relative had eventually
gone into a coma. Their physicians could not get the blood sugar levels
under control. Thus, the patients suffered acute memory loss and eventually
coma and death.
- Memory loss is due to the fact that aspartic
acid and phenylalanine are neurotoxic without the other amino acids found
in protein. Thus it goes past the blood brain barrier and deteriorates
the neurons of the brain. Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, said, "The
ingredients stimulates the neurons of the brain to death, causing brain
damage of varying degrees. Dr. Blaylock has written a book entitled "EXCITOTOXINS:
THE TASTE THAT KILLS" (Health Press 1-800-643-2665). Dr. H.J. Roberts,
diabetic specialist and world expert on aspartame poisoning, has also written
a book entitled "DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE" (1-800-814-9800).
Dr. Roberts tells how aspartame poisoning is escalating Alzheimer's Disease,
and indeed it is. As the hospice nurse told me, women are being admitted
at 30 years of age with Alzheimer's Disease. Dr. Blaylock and Dr. Roberts
will be writing a position paper with some case histories and will post
it on the Internet. According to the Conference of the American College
of Physicians, 'We are talking about a plague of neurological diseases
caused by this deadly poison".
- Dr. Roberts realized what was happening
when aspartame was first marketed. He said "his diabetic patients
presented memory loss, confusion, and severe vision loss". At the
Conference of the American College of Physicians, doctors admitted that
they did not know. They had wondered why seizures were rampant (the phenylalanine
in aspartame breaks down the seizure threshold and depletes serotonin,
which causes manic depression, panic attacks, rage and violence).
- Just before the Conference, I received
a FAX from Norway, asking for a possible antidote for this poison because
they are experiencing so many problems in their country. This poison is
now available in 90 PLUS countries worldwide. Fortunately, we had speakers
and ambassadors at the Conference from different nations who have pledged
their help. We ask that you help too. Print this article out and warn everyone
you know. Take anything that contains aspartame black to the store. Take
the "NO ASPARTAME TEST" and send us your case history.
- I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator
of aspartame, knows how deadly it is. They fund the American Diabetes Association,
American Dietetic Association, Congress, and the Conference of the American
College of Physicians. The New York Times, on November 15, 1996, ran an
article on how the American Dietetic Association takes money from the food
industry to endorse their products. Therefore, they can not criticize any
additives or tell about their link to MONSANTO. How bad is this? We told
a mother who had a child on NutraSweet to get off the product. The child
was having grand mal seizures every day. The mother called her physician,
who called the ADA, who told the doctor not to take the child off the NutraSweet.
We are still trying to convince the mother that the aspartame is causing
the seizures. Every time we get someone off of aspartame, the seizures
stop. If the baby dies, you know whose fault it is, and what we are up
against. There are 92 documented symptoms of aspartame, from coma to death.
The majority of them are all neurological, because the aspartame destroys
the nervous system.
- Aspartame Disease is partially the cause
to what is behind some of the mystery of the Dessert Storm health problems.
The burning tongue and other problems discussed in over 60 cases can be
directly related to the consumption of an aspartame product. Several thousand
pallets of diet drinks were shipped to the Dessert Storm troops. (Remember
heat can liberate the methanol from the aspartame at 86 degrees F). Diet
drinks sat in the 120 degree F. Arabian sun for weeks at a time on pallets.
The service men and women drank them all day long. All of their symptoms
are identical to aspartame poisoning. Dr. Roberts says "consuming
aspartame at the time of conception can cause birth defects". The
phenylalanine concentrates in the placenta, causing mental retardation,
according to Dr. Louis Elsas, Pediatrician Professor - Genetics, at Emory
University in his testimony before Congress.
- In the original lab tests, animals developed
brain tumors (phenylalanine breaks down into DXP, a brain tumor agent).
When Dr. Espisto was lecturing on aspartame, one physician in the audience,
a neurosurgeon, said, "when they remove brain tumors, they have found
high levels of aspartame in them".
- Stevia, a sweet food, NOT AN ADDITIVE,
which helps in the metabolism of sugar, which would be ideal for diabetics,
has now been approved as a dietary supplement by the F.D.A. For years,
the F.D.A. has outlawed this sweet food because of their loyalty to MONSANTO.
- If it says "SUGAR FREE" on
the label-- DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!l! Senator Howard Hetzenbaum
wrote a bill that would have warned all infants, pregnant mothers and children
of the dangers of aspartame. The bill would have also instituted independent
studies on the problems existing in the population (seizures, changes in
brain chemistry, changes in neurological and behavioral symptoms). It was
killed by the powerful drug and chemical lobbies, letting loose the hounds
of disease and death on an unsuspecting public. Since the Conference of
the American College of Physicians, we hope to have the help of some world
leaders. Again, please help us too. There are a lot of people out there
who must be warned, please let them know this information.
