- 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. 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' converts to formaldehyde and then to
formic acid, which in turns 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 in Diet Coke
and Diet Pepsi drinkers. Also, with methanol toxicity is. Also, with
methanol toxicity, the victims usually drink three to four 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 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 cannot reverse this disease.
- 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,
spasm, 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
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 leaders' sons could no longer
walk-due in part by product usage. We have a very serious problem. Even
a stranger came up to Dr. Espisto (one of the speakers) and myself and
said, "Could you tell me why so many people seem to be coming down
with MS?" 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 coincidence.
- Just before the conference, I received a FAX from Norway,
asking for a possible antidote for this poison because they were experiencing
so many problems in their country. This poison is now available in over
90 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 back 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 it? We told a mother who was feeding her
child 'NutraSweet' to get off the product. The child was having grand
mal seizures regularly. 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 aspartame is causing the seizures.
Every time we get someone off aspartame, the seizures stop. There are
92 documented symptoms of aspartame, from coma to death. The majority
of them are all neurological, because aspartame destroys the nervous system.
- 'Aspartame Disease' is partially the cause to what is
behind some of the mystery of the Desert 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 Desert Storm troops. (Remember that heat
can liberate the methanol from the aspartame at 86 degrees F). Diet drinks
set in the 120 degrees 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 said, "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
- 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."
- The FDA has now approved Steve, a sweet food, NOT AN
ADDITIVE, which helps in the metabolism of sugar, which would be ideal
for diabetics, as a dietary supplement. For years, the FDA has outlawed
this sweet food because of their loyalty to Monsanto.
- If it says, "Sugar Free" on the label-DO NOT
BUY IT OR CONSUME IT. This is especially true for those who use aspartame
in their hot coffee, tea or chocolate drinks. The temperature is well
over 86 degrees F. Senator Howard Hetzenbaum wrote a bill that would have
warned pregnant mothers and their children of the dangers of aspartame.
The bill would have also instituted independent studies on the existing
problems in the population (seizures, changes in the brain chemistry, changes
in neurological and behavioral symptoms). The bill is still in committee.
- Here is the problem. There were congressional hearings
in which aspartame was included in 100 different products. Since this
initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, but to no avail.
Nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets.
Now there are over 5,000 products containing this chemical, and the patent
has expired, so it can be put into any food substance by anyone. At the
time of the 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 drugs 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.
- 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 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 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 in some cases, death.
- Memory loss is due to the fact that the 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 stimulate the neurons of the brain to death, causing brain
damage to varying degrees." Dr. Blaylock has written a book entitled:
"EXCITOTOXINS: THE TASTE THAT KILLS (HEALTH PRESS 1 800 643 2665).
Dr. H.J. Roberts, a diabetic specialist and world expert on aspartame
poisoning, has also written a book entitled "DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMER'
- Dr. Roberts tells how aspartame 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, "My diabetic
patients presented memory loss, confusion, and severe vision loss."
At the conference, doctors 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).
- The powerful drug chemical lobbies, letting loose the
hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting public, continue to keep
the public ignorant of the consequences of aspartame. Since the Conference
of American College and Physicians, we hope to have the help of some world
leaders. You can help us, too.
- There are millions of people using "Sugar Free"
sweeteners in their coffee, yogurt, candy, tea, soda pop, diet pop, flavored
juice drinks, and hundreds of other foods. Forward this message to them.
