The following article is
absolutely not political, but the data life saving. --Dr. Betty Martini,
How beautiful Ann Romney is, well-dressed, charming, well spoken, and
family oriented with 5 sons. Then I heard how she has suffered
with MS, and breast cancer. Because multiple sclerosis and breast
cancer are so common with aspartame I turned to the Internet to find
what I expected - that Mitt Romney and Ann Romney both are aspartame
users. (NutraSweet/AminoSweet/Equal/Spoonful/Canderel/E951, etc.)
Both drink Diet Coke.
Aspartame can mimic or precipitate MS. This article includes reports
by world aspartame expert H. J. Roberts, M.D., who authored the 1000
page medical text, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic", and renowned
neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. who wrote "Excitotoxins: The
Taste That Kills". http://www.mpwhi.com/new_report_at_neurology_conference.htm
Multiple Sclerosis is on the cover of the medical text and there is
a chapter explaining the mechanism by which aspartame creates it.
Dr. Blaylock’s report explains the connection.
Many years ago I lectured for the World Environmental Conference
( www.dorway.com/nomarkle.html). Someone put a radical title on
it, plagiarized it. It went viral. It wasn’t long before the media
realized I was the author. Hundreds of aspartame users with MS
called telling me they read it, got off the poison and got well!
Many walked out of wheelchairs like Cori Brackett who made the movie,
“Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World”. She had been in a wheelchair
and could hardly walk or speak. She was diagnosed with MS
with one of the largest lesions seen in an MS victim. Off aspartame
it all but disappeared in 8 months. She called telling me her
case and said, "A movie should be made about it". I said, "Tell
me about it!!" She replied, "I own the film company" and so “Sweet
Misery: A Poisoned World” was made, and has spread to other countries
saving more lives.
Industry tried to say the post about the World Environmental
Conference was a hoax, but I put my telephone number on the Internet
and I had all the proof anyone needed. As one woman said, "I thought
it was easily provable; simply get off of it and see what happens.
Soon I felt normal and realized the last thing I needed was a wheelchair.
I couldn't wait to tell other MS victims on aspartame and they too got
well. I wondered how many people on aspartame with MS didn't know
and would they lose their life.?" She was so excited as she exclaimed
over and over again, “I’m well, I’m well, I’m well.” Here's another
case to understand: http://rense.com/general92/aas.htm
The Aspartame MS cases never stop.
Susan Myers of Washington State had MS prior to using aspartame but,
of course, since aspartame destroys the central nervous system it would
make it worse. She wrote on Day 44 off aspartame, "I now have
all the feeling in legs, feet, arms and hands. This is a first
in about 15 years. ... My hands are really great. I can feel the
texture of something without having to put it up to my face to know
what it feels like, or feeling for an object, which I haven't been able
to do in years. .. I can see better in the distance. For
the first time in years didn't need my dark glasses at night this past
Tuesday night because of the headlights always blinded me.... My memory
has improved as well as my concentration.”
Ermelle Martinez, using aspartame in medical school, was diagnosed with
MS. She was ready for a wheelchair and had to give up her education.
Fortunately a physician knew about aspartame and she was referred to
us. She had a huge lesion in her head when Dr. Russell Blaylock
saw her. Off aspartame it disappeared. Today over the problem
she is Mission Possible Los Angeles but she lost out on being a physician.
Two husbands divorced her because they wanted children. She had
no idea that aspartame is a endocrine disrupting agent, stimulates prolactin,
changes the menses and causes infertility. It also is an abortifacient
and teratogen causing birth defects and mental retardation. On
eliminating aspartame she began to ovulate again but it was too late
for her to have a family.
The aspartame MS horror stories continue, hundreds of them.
Alicia Morris was drinking 3 Diet Coke's a day and was diagnosed by
two physicians as having MS. She wrote, "My eyesight began to
fade until I was almost blind in one eye. Next my hearing became
dull and my legs, feet and torso lost sensation and became numb.
I was dizzy most of the time, irritable and depressed and had constant
terrible headaches. I became very clumsy, dropped and bumped into
things. I used to skate but having lost my balance, I had to give it
up. My mind was affected and I thought I had a brain tumor.
Reading comprehension and memory drastically decreased. I thought
I was dying." Off aspartame, Alicia wrote, "My hearing and vision
have returned and so has my memory. I'm no longer clumsy and have
regained my balance and feeling has returned to my extremities.
.. I learned that I had the classic symptoms and if I had not been warned
in time it may have killed me. There is no doubt that the NutraSweet
was responsible. One day a hostess gave me a Diet Pepsi, and not
wanting to hurt her feelings, I accepted. sure enough the next
day my numbness returned and I began to feel ill. This poison
must be removed from the market. I'm writing to help others in
the hope that they can avoid the terror, confusion and helplessness
NutraSweet bought into my life."
Alicia Morris is another who did not realize that aspartame causes infertility.
Off aspartame and now no longer having MS her story was told in "First
For Women" with her holding the baby boy she never thought she would
Gloria Collins exclaimed, “Betty, my eye doctor says I’m going blind
and I have the symptoms of MS.” I found out she was using
12 packets of Equal in her coffee. Off aspartame her sight returned
and all MS symptoms disappeared. There is a movement called “Pay
It Forward”. The expression “pay it forward” is used to describe
the concept of asking that a good deed be repaid by having it done for
others. Gloria began to warn and save others so happy to have
her life back. I remember a call from her when she took a train
to New York to warn someone in her family who was diabetic as aspartame
can precipitate diabetes, simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy
and neuropathy, destroys the optic nerve, causes diabetics to go into
convulsions and even interacts with insulin. The free methyl alcohol
causes diabetics to lose limbs. On the train Gloria saw one passenger
who was using Equal and said, “You’re sick, aren't you?” The passenger
admitted having medical problems and she said, “just get off of it and
watch aspartame reactions disappear”. She called because she was
so happy to have warned so many she hoped would get their life back
as she had.
It may be that Ann Romney may no longer have a problem if she
gets off Diet Coke and all aspartame products. Her life may be
as beautiful as she is, without MS or other health problems.
As to the breast cancer she had, its predictable. In original
studies there were more mammary tumors than brain tumors. Today
1 out of 8 will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Dr. Morando Soffritti
of the Ramazzini Institute did multi year studies on aspartame and proved
beyond a shadow of a doubt that aspartame is a multipotential carcinogen.
One of his last studies proved that it causes breast cancer.
http://rense.com/general77/lowdoses.htm Lane Shore, Mission Possible
Chicago, has lost 8 members of his family from aspartame and was a victim
himself. His wife is addicted to it and refuses to abstain.
She has just been operated for breast cancer. She first lost her
feet and then her legs and has had so many operations I have lost track.
A friend whose fiancée lost her life to cancer from aspartame
can be seen in the Barcelona documentary.
It should concern the public that world leaders consume this addictive
poison. Dr. H. J. Roberts many years ago wrote about President
George Bush's use of aspartame when he had a blackout, common with aspartame:
When he was in Georgia the Atlanta Journal Constitution writing
about his memory loss which is so common with aspartame that it's #9
on the FDA List of 92 symptoms (coma to death). They reported
he appeared to need a cue when he was talking his memory loss was so
bad. In “Defense Against Alzheimer’s Disease”, Dr. Roberts wrote
that aspartame is escalating this disease. Indeed an informant
wrote me that the National Soft Drink Assn did a ten-year study they
never published proving aspartame causes birth defects, Alzheimer’s
and blindness. When I once met someone from the NSDA I was told,
“no way you could have those studies”. Today these aspartame problems
are discussed in Dr. Roberts medical text.
President Bill Clinton is also a Diet Coke user. Dr. H. J. Roberts
had dinner with him and tried to get him off of it, even gave him some
books he had written on the subject. Unfortunately President Clinton
was hooked and was having heart problems, eventually ending up with
by-pass surgery. I faxed the expert’s reports on aspartame and
sudden cardiac death to his physician at the Columbia Presbyterian Medical
Center at that time with a copy to President Clinton's Harlem Office.
my Green Beret brother who got addicted to aspartame, first the cardiac
problems, heart attack and then by-pass surgery. Today off of
it he’s in a wheelchair and has a pacemaker so much damage done by
this chemical poison.
I had no idea that Hillary was also addicted to Diet Coke. In
2007 when she was concerned about children and running for the presidency,
I faxed the "Report for Schools" http://www.mpwhi.com/report_on_aspartame_and_children.htm
to her six offices at the request of Stephen Fox, Mission Possible New
Mexico. Hillary Clinton was on TV and mentioned she use
to drink Diet Coke but now only drank water. It appears she took
this report seriously. Good for you, Hillary!
Even President Barak Obama has been seen drinking Diet Coke. When
Michelle became concerned about childhood obesity Dr. H. J. Roberts
made sure she had his medical text so she would know aspartame has caused
a global epidemic of obesity. He also wrote her a letter.
We know she got it because it was delivered to her at the White House
and put in her hands by someone she knew, even though he never got an
Below my signature is the Aspartame Resource Guide, which tells the
story of how aspartame got marketed after the FDA, had tried to indict
the manufacturer and revoked the petition for approval. It also
gives the experts books, movies and information on how to get it out
of your state.
Pepsi now says they are going to change the formula for Diet Pepsi because
of the aspartame breakdown. http://www.activistpost.com/2012/09/new-pepsi-sweetener-is-mixture-of.html
There are many articles about it but I doubt they will remove aspartame
as they should. It appears from reading several articles that more sweeteners
that are considered dangerous will be added.
They could use "Just Like Sugar", www.justlikesugarinc.com
which is safe, has been analyzed and is made from organic food and not
unsafe chemical additives. Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon,
has written several times in his “Blaylock Wellness Report” about it
saying “finally a safe sweetener”. Will they spend a little more
to safeguard the health of the public?
Pepsi like Coke have always known aspartame breaks down and is
adulterated (against the law) at least for 30 years.
They are part of the National Soft Drink Assn (now American Beverage)
who protested to the FDA against adding NutraSweet to carbonated beverages,
and then turned around and lobbied for NutraSweet. They obviously
found out very early on that aspartame is a cash cow because of the
addiction. Read their original objections from which were added
to the congressional record: http://www.mpwhi.com/open_letter_dick_adamson.htm
Also when you think of leaders using aspartame remember that it triggers
psychiatric and behavioral problems and interacts with all anti-depressants.
say mental hospitals are full of patients that are simply aspartame
victims. They still serve them diet pop with aspartame and it
interacts with their drugs. Dr. H. J. Roberts says you have to
consider this poison when you see children killing children. Consider
how much less crime there would be if it was removed from the market.
How many have perished since aspartame was first marketed? Dr.
Maria Alemany who did the famous Trocho Study, which showed the formaldehyde
converted from the free methyl alcohol embalms living tissue, told me
in Barcelona that aspartame would kill 200 million. Has it already?
Help us save Ann Romney and Mitt. Keep forwarding this until it
finally reaches their hands. September is Aspartame Awareness
Make sure their lives are saved from this heinous mind and body destroying
poison. Let’s all “Pay it Forward”!

Safe Sweetener: Just Like Sugar, www.justlikesugarinc.om
Can be found in places like Whole Foods. Made of chicory and orange
peel, Calcium and Vitamin C. Chicory has been used for 70 years
to improve the health of diabetics. Dr. Russell Blaylock wrote
in his newsletter, The Blaylock Wellness Report, www.russellblaylockmd.com
"Finally a safe sweetener".
Special warning for diabetics: Aspartame can precipitate diabetes,
simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, destroys
the optic nerve, causes diabetics to go into convulsions, and even interacts
with insulin. The free methyl alcohol causes diabetics to lose
limbs. Jeanette Soto, Mission Possible Brookville, Florida who
wrote “Blinded Sight” when her husband lost his sight from aspartame
was unable to get her father-in-law, diabetic off aspartame because
of the addiction. The free methyl alcohol is classified as a narcotic.
It causes chronic methanol poisoning which affects the dopamine system
of the brain and causes the addiction. When Jeanette’s father-in-law,
Santiago Echiverria died it had to be a closed casket, the formaldehyde
from the free methyl alcohol was oozing out of his skin. The American
Diabetes Assn was sued in 2004 for racketeering for pushing aspartame
on diabetics, but because of their power got out of it.
Today people are dying of the methanol poisoning. Dr. James Bowen explains:
"Only after longer aspartame usage does liver damage cause blood
methanol levels to measurably rise because the liver mitochondria are
so damaged that the liver no longer quickly processes either methyl
or ethyl (drink) alcohol. Then the acute methanol poisoning is directly
measurable from lab results, as the blood methanol level elevates.
This entire sequence or "toxic axis" begins with your very first dose
of aspartame. Both acute and chronic poisonings from this methanol toxic
axis, and other additive and synergistic aspartame poisonings, steadily
accumulate in the aspartame consumer.” We continue to get reports
of people dying of methanol poisoning. Charles Fleming died and
his wife, a Sunday School teacher, remains in a prison in Virginia.
The detective on the case said, “Diane is innocent but because I was
promoted I could not stop the indictment.” Be warned no diabetic
should ever consume wood alcohol. The FDA did no NOAEL on methanol.
Without it you cannot set an ADI, allowable daily intake. It’s
44% too high.

The Lethal Science of Splenda: http://www.wnho.net/splenda_chlorocarbon.htm
Studies have shown that sucralose can:
* Cause the thymus to shrink by as much as 40% (the thymus is
your immune powerhouse - it produces T cells)
* Cause enlargement of the liver and kidneys
* Reduce growth rate as much as 20%
* Cause enlargement of the large bowel area
* Reduce the amount of good bacteria in the intestines by 50%
* Increase the pH level in the intestines (a risk factor for colon
* Contribute to weight gain
* Cause aborted pregnancy low fetal body weight
* Reduce red blood cell count
Particular warning to diabetics: Researchers found that diabetic
patients using sucralose showed a statistically significant increase
in glycosylated hemoglobin, a marker that is used to assess glycemic
control in diabetic patients. According to the FDA, "increases in glycosolation
in hemoglobin imply lessening of control of diabetes."
Here is how Splenda is made: http://www.wnho.net/chemical_processing_of_splenda.htm
Just recently, Dr. Morando Soffritti announced a new study on Sucralose
which showed it causes cancer.
Ajinomoto just announced a new name for aspartame called AminoSweet.
Be warned. It goes under many names; NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful,
Naturataste, Canderel, Benevia, E951, etc. Because the patent
has expired it can be used in anything. You must read labels.
Many times it’s hidden in artificial and natural flavors. Remember
that aspartame has a synergistic and additive effect with MSG.
Stuart Pape of the National Yogurt Assn has petitioned the FDA to allow
aspartame unlabeled in yogurt and dairy products. The FDA has
ignored my FOIA request asking if they allowed this, which is illegal.

Dear Ms. Oshita:
In reading available information, I assume you want mostly how aspartame
relates to cancer. Indeed it is a carcinogen, proven so by many
scientific studies. Aspartame also triggers many other serious
diseases, which fill the 1,000+ page medical text, Aspartame Disease:
An Ignored Epidemic, www.sunsentpress.com by H. J. Roberts, M.D.
When FDA Commissioner Dr. Von Eschenbach took office I wrote him about
aspartame and cancer, mainly due to his professed intention to save
cancer victims; so much of this has already been done. http://www.mpwhi.com/project_recall_aspartame.htm
Later 12 toxicologists asked the FDA to ban aspartame because of the
long term Ramazzini studies on large rat populations showing aspartame
is “a multipotential carcinogen”. http://www.cspinet.org/new/pdf/aspartame_letter_to_fda.pdf
Now I'll go back to the beginning.
Aspartame was not approved by science but thru the political chicanery
of Don Rumsfeld. D.C. Attorney James Turner, explains how Rumsfeld
did it in the documentary Sweet Misery, a Poisoned World. Here’s a clip
from the movie so you can hear what he said: http://www.soundandfury.tv/pages/rumsfeld2.html
Searle’s problem was they couldn’t get studies to show safety.
For example, in the Bressler Report: http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_news.htm
you read where they would excise brain tumors from the rats, put them
back in the study and after they died resurrected them back on paper.
They even filtered out neoplasms to hide them from the FDA. Repeatedly
Searle was caught in this criminal activity.
On January 10, 1977 in a 33 page letter, FDA Chief Counsel Richard Merrill
recommended to the Justice Department Attorney Sam Skinner that a grand
jury investigate Searle for "apparent violations of the Federal Food,
Drug, and Cosmetic Act, 21 USC 331 (e), and the False Reports to the
Government Act, 18 U.S.C. 1001, for "their willful and knowing failure
to make reports to the Food and Drug Administration required by the
Act, 21 U.S.C 355 (i) and making false statements in reports of animal
studies conducted to establish the safety of aspartame." The FDA called
special attention to studies investigating the effect of NutraSweet
on monkeys and hamsters.
Searle was caught dead to rights, so they hired Skinner, made him a
deal he couldn’t refuse. So the former Justice Department prosecutor
became a defender. Next at bat - U. S. Prosecutor William
Conlon, promptly switched sides too. By then the statute of limitations
had expired. Searle knew they couldn't win the case so they simply hired
the prosecutors. The Godfather hired the District Attorneys!
Nevertheless the FDA had no intention of approving aspartame.
The fraud was so great that Dr. John Olney (who with James Turner fought
against approval of aspartame) told Searle to do studies in his lab
so he could see that they were done honestly, with supervision.
Dr. Olney believed the FDA wouldn’t approve aspartame because the studies
showed it produced brain damaged. What he didn’t anticipate is
that Searle didn’t submit these findings to the FDA.
January 30, 1980 the Public Board of Inquiry revoked Searle’s petition
for approval declaring that they had "not been presented with proof
of reasonable certainty that aspartame is safe for use as a food additive."
Searle had spent $17 million on an aspartame factory and had no intention
of giving up, poison or no. At this point they hired Donald Rumsfeld
who said he would call in his markers and get it approved anyway. What
were those markers? President Reagan had told Rumsfeld he would
be nominated for vice president, but instead selected Bush number 1.
The day after Reagan took office he appointed Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes
as the new FDA Commissioner, to over-rule the Board of Inquiry.
Reagan knew it would take 30 days to get Hayes to the FDA, so he wrote
an Executive Order making the FDA powerless to do anything about aspartame.
At 3 AM that night a member of Reagan’s staff called the FDA Commissioner
Jere Goyan and fired him. Here is a letter from his wife who was
there when the terminating call came in: http://www.mpwhi.com/letter_about_jere_goyan.pdf
Once aspartame was on the market there was outrage as consumers were
diagnosed with seizures, multiple sclerosis and blindness from the free
methyl alcohol releases. Senator Orrin Hatch, on Monsanto’s payroll,
obstructed hearings on aspartame for years, but there were 3 Congressional
hearings from 1985 to l987. Hatch was on Monsanto’s payroll, and
kept the bill in committee that would put a moratorium on aspartame
until NIH completed independent studies on the flood of aspartame problems
they were seeing: seizures, blindness, headaches, sexual dysfunction,
behavioral problems, especially in children, drug interactions and birth
About that time Dr. James Bowen wrote FDA that “aspartame is mass poisoning
of the American public and 70 countries” - today over 100.
http://www.dorway.com/drbowen.txt The good doctor wrote: "For
this reason, I am opposed to labeling aspartame content of food and
drinks. To do so would imply that the government is taking some
sort of responsible action....when the only responsible action would
be to immediately take aspartame off the market, fully disclose its
toxicities, offer full compensation to the injured, public and criminally
prosecute anyone who participated in the fraudulent placement of aspartame
on the marketplace."
How was the new FDA Commissioner, Arthur Hayes, rewarded
for over-ruling the Board of Inquiry? He was hired as a consultant
to NutraSweet’s PR Agency on a 10-year contract at $1,000.00 a day,
and nobody’s heard a peep from him since, he got lockjaw. Who
ever heard of a PR guy who won’t talk?
Now they began funding professional organizations, ladies-of-the-evening
like the American Diabetes Assn, American Dietetic Assn and numerous
others to propagandize the public with touting asparshame. Of course
they also threatened scientists whose studies identified the toxicity
of this poison. In the UPI Investigation Dr. Wurtman was threatened
if he did studies on aspartame and seizures he would lose his funding.
He capitulated. Read this report on the 8 month investigation by United
Press International: http://www.mpwhi.com/upi_1987_aspartame_report.pdf
Dr. Wurtman, too, got a terrible case of aspartame lockjaw, but MIT
still gets the money.
ILSI, the International Life Sciences Institute, was born in 1978 as
a “research” front for our favorite poisoners. Its board members
are from Coke, Pepsi, Searle, Monsanto and the rest of the usual suspects.
If a university won't play their way the get no pay, that is to say,
funding for fake “research”.
Over the years many independent studies have been done. The manufacturers
say 200 studies that aspartame is safe as rain. Some of those
were the ones FDA found fraudulent and sought prosecution for, and others
were simply bought and paid for quack studies from rubber duck labs.
Consider seizure studies by Monsanto, they bought Searle in l985:
are listed 5 times on the FDA report of 92 symptoms that range from
male sexual dysfunction to death: http://www.mpwhi.com/92_aspartame_symptoms.pdf
People are having so many seizures and going blind on aspartame that
the Community Nutrition Institute filed a petition to ban aspartame
in l986. Again the manufacturers put in the fix to prevent it from being
They were so worried someone would have a seizure they actually gave
people anti-seizure medication in the Rowan study. ‘
Another impeccable “study” involved one-day consumption of, believe
it or not: a single capsule of aspartame. Tantamount to smelling
the bottle. The got it peer reviewed with their power. So
when consumers complain of seizures they say "we did studies and aspartame
doesn't cause seizures".
I smoked a Lucky once and I’m fine, so nicotine doesn’t cause cancer!
They have all bases covered. Today front groups like Calorie Control
Council, with full knowledge that aspartame causes birth defects and
mental retardation actually push the poison: http://www.wnho.net/mh_aspartame_letter.htm
When 60 Minutes did a story about aspartame and brain tumors the manufactures
claimed to have all these studies showing safety. Dr. Ralph Walton
who was on the show decided to research who funded the “studies”: http://www.dorway.com/peerrev.html
Note that 92% of independent peer-reviewed studies show problems aspartame
causes, while those funded or controlled by industry all say it’s safe.
If you eliminate 6 studies the FDA, aspartame’s branch office in Washington,
messed with, and one pro-aspartame sponsored summary, 100% of independent
scientific peer reviewed studies show aspartame problems.
As Dr. Bowen said: this is mass poisoning of the world. Aspartame
destroys the brain, the optic nerve, the immune system and central nervous
system. It devastates every organ of the body. Epidemic
obesity, diabetes, sexual dysfunction, retinopathy and neuropathy, optic
nerve destruction, convulsions and insulin reactions, MS, Parkinson’s,
Alzheimer’s, IQ depreciation and dozens of other afflictions have been
inflicted upon us by this deadly neurotoxic carcinogenic “sweetener”.
According to the prestigious Ecologist, aspartame was listed with the
pentagon in an inventory of prospective biochemical warfare weapons
submitted to Congress. http://www.mpwhi.com/ecologist_september_2005.pdf
Studies show the horrific damage done to the body. For instance,
the Trocho Study shows the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl
alcohol actually embalms tissue and damages DNA. www.mpwhi.com/formaldehyde_from_aspartame.pdf
Here are summaries of the two aspartame studies, Ramazzini, that showed
aspartame to be a multipotential carcinogen, passed down through
DR. MORANDO SOFFRITTI, lead researcher on two groundbreaking long-term
aspartame studies. He was recently honored at New York’s Mt Sinai School
of Medicine with the Irving J Selikoff Award For his outstanding contributions
to the identification of environmental and industrial carcinogens and
his promotion of independent scientific research. Reviewing his two
impeccable aspartame studies. Dr. Soffritti explains:
The first ERF study (2005) was conducted on 1800 Sprague-Dawley rats
(100-150/per sex/per group) In order to simulate daily human intake,
aspartame was added to the standard rat diet in quantities of 5000,
2500, 100, 500, 20, 4, and 0 mg/Kg of body weight. Treatment of the
animals began at 8 weeks of age and continued until spontaneous death.
The results show that APM causes a statistically significant, dose-related
increase of lymphomas/leukemias and malignant tumors of the renal pelvis
in females and malignant tumors of peripheral nerves in males. These
results demonstrate for the first time that APM is a carcinogenic agent,
capable of inducing malignancies at various dose levels, including those
lower than the current acceptable daily intake (ADI) for humans (50
mg/kg of body weight in the US, 40 mg/kg of body weight in the EU).
The second ERF study (2007) was conducted on 400 Sprague-Dawley rats
(70-95/per sex/per group). In order to simulate daily human intake,
aspartame was added to the standard rat diet in quantities of 100, 20,
and 0 mg/Kg of body weight. Treatment of the animals began on the 12th
day of fetal life until natural death. The results of the second study
show an increased incidence of lymphomas/leukemias in female rats with
respect to the first study. Moreover, the study shows that when lifespan
exposure to APM begins during fetal life, the age at which lymphomas/leukemias
develop in females is anticipated. For the first time, a statistically
significant increase in mammary cancers in females was also observed
in the second study. The results of this transplacental carcinogenicity
bioassay not only confirm, but also reinforce the first experimental

In 2002 I petitioned the FDA to ban aspartame. The FDA had 180
days to answer it. They refuse, obviously because I'm using their
own words, and they don't know how to get around the fact that everything
is a matter of record. If it wasn't so criminal one would
have to laugh at their propaganda - the idea that someone might even
consider believing them. For instance, they will tell you there
is just a small amount of methanol, and there is more in oranges.
What they don't say is that in oranges that it is accompanied by ethanol,
which is the classic antidote for methanol toxicity and takes it out
of your body safely. Here is a peer reviewed journal article about
Methanol also binds to pectin. In aspartame there is no ethanol.
Here is their basic propaganda answered with references:

There are efforts now in states and countries to rid the planet of aspartame.
It is genetically engineered. The manufacturers are get people
in high places addicted. When I testified to the Senate in New
Mexico, half the senators were sipping Diet Coke. Presidents Clinton
and Bush were addicted. Methanol is classified as a narcotic,
it causes chronic methanol poisoning. This affects the dopamine system
of the brain producing addiction.
I've lectured in other countries and I can tell you people are
sick and dying the world over on this poison. It would be great to see
it banned from California. First of all its illegally on the market
because it violates the Delaney Amendment. Here are comments from
an FDA toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, to Congress on 8/1/85:
Dr. Gross testified that at least one of Searle's studies "has established
beyond ANY REASONABLE DOUBT that aspartame is capable of inducing brain
tumors in experimental animals and that this predisposition of it is
of extremely high significance. ... In view of these indications that
the cancer causing potential of aspartame is a matter that had been
established WAY BEYOND ANY REASONABLE DOUBT, one can ask: What is the
reason for the apparent refusal by the FDA to invoke for this food additive
the so-called Delaney Amendment to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act?"
The Delaney Amendment makes it illegal to allow any residues of cancer
causing chemicals in foods. In his concluding testimony Gross asked,
"Given the cancer causing potential of aspartame how would the FDA justify
its position that it views a certain amount of aspartame as constituting
an allowable daily intake or 'safe' level of it? Is that position in
effect not equivalent to setting a 'tolerance' for this food additive
and thus a violation of that law? And if the FDA itself elects to violate
the law, who is left to protect the health of the public?" Congressional
Record SID835:131 (August 1, l985)
Here is my letter to the Assembly Committee on Health which exposes
the fact that it's adulterated: http://www.mpwhi.com/letter_to_a_n_kim_california_ach.htm
The adulteration means it violates interstate commerce laws.
Consumer power is winning the war against this toxin. Holland Sweetener,
the largest European aspartame producer closed in 2006. Another European
maker also quit. In Japan Tosh stopped making it as well. Merisant,
in the USA went bankrupt for $230,000,000 in January, 2009. 47
members of Parliament signed for a ban in the UK. There is continuing
effort to get banned in the Philippines. Romania banned it in
the early 90's because it’s carcinogenic. And now the European Food
Safety Authority is doing a review.
Today no drug is safe if the consumer is using aspartame because of
the interaction due to damage to the mitochondria. It's used in
hospitals because of the dietitians making patients even sicker.
The Nutratanic hit the iceberg and Coke & Pepsi are in the lifeboats
with new sweeteners in the works. Japan’s Ajinomoto and the USA NutraSweet
Co are still slapping around in the frigid waters of consumer condemnation.
If I can provide further data I’ll gladly do so. There is no way
to show safety on aspartame with honest, unbiased studies. Eliminate
industry studies to defend its product and you'll see how deadly is
this toxin. Dr. Bill Deagle said its more deadly than depleted
uranium because its ubiquitous in our food.
