Rumsfeld and former FDA Commissioner Arthur Hayes are responsible for putting aspartame on the market and millions have died. The FDA has had every opportunity to recall aspartame but instead has given its loyalty to Big Pharma. In l986 when the Community Nutrition Institute petitioned FDA to ban aspartame because so many were having seizures and going blind FDA refused. This was like shouting to the world "We don't care how many have seizures, go blind and die, we represent the aspartame industry and we will be loyal no matter how many perish." Since then there have been thousands of cases of vision problems, blindness and seizures. It wasn't even the case of not knowing. The RAO Study pivotal in the approval of aspartame showed it to be a seizure triggering drug because of high serum phenylalanine levels in the blood. Your own FDA report of 92 documented symptoms list 4 types of seizures being experienced by people in the population. Why don't you care that people are dying?

You remember Flo Jo, a runner perished. She had a seizure while drinking her Diet Coke. The heart has to work harder and because of aspartame damaging the cardiac conduction system and causing sudden death she didn't have a chance.

At every opportunity you help Big Pharma. When Pilcher, the athlete, died in West Palm Beach you immediately recalled ephedra, Chinese Mahaung, that has been used for thousands of years. Yet, Pilcher didn't die from Ephedra, he was worried about his weight and would go a couple of days without eating. Then he would drink Diet Coke all day laced with aspartame. So aspartame killed him just like its continuing to kill athletes, even little student athletes in school. But were you concerned about Ephedra - not in the least. The reason we know that is the only ephedra that has done any harm because its synthesized by Big Pharma and added to drugs is by prescription. Yet you allowed that to remain and removed the herb that has done no harm, so Big Pharma would have the monopoly. Dr. John Olney reviewed your complaints and found them to be without merit, and stated that ephedra was safe. You write you have no power of recall. Then how did you recall ephedra? Look at your history. Why do you lie to the public?


What power has been given you that allows you to serve above the law? You know aspartame is a multipotential carcinogen. In original studies it triggered brain, mammary, uterine, ovarian, testicular, thyroid and pancreatic tumors. Your own FDA toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross told Congress that aspartame violated the Delaney Amendment which forbids putting anything in food you know causes cancer. The National Soft Drink Assn, now American Beverage, admitted aspartame is adulterated and listed the FDA law that forbids it. It's a crime to ship an adulterated product for sale. That means aspartame violates Interstate Commerce Laws. Aspartame is not even an additive because you know that additives must be inert or non-reactive. Additives are not suppose to cause 92 symptoms including death by your own records. How could you allow even babies and children to consume an additive excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug?

News articles declare great concern for benzoate because of damage to the mitochondria in DNA:

That's interesting since we know aspartame damages DNA. This scientific peer reviewed study was not even mentioned by the FDA. Damning studies on aspartame are completely ignored by FDA. I personally spoke to the researcher in Barcelona about this study. He told me after doing this study that aspartame would kill 200 million people. I told him it already had. He even went to the authorities and the VP of Spain because of concern for the human race. Perhaps you could take a lesson from men of integrity like Dr. Alemany. Why did you ignore this study that showed the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol embalms living tissue? Is it only fixed industry studies that you accept? Here is Dr. Walton's research on scientific peer reviewed studies and funding he did for 60 Minutes. Note that 92% of independent studies show the problems aspartame causes. Eliminate one pro-industry summary and 6 studies FDA had something to do with and 100% of independent scientific peer reviewed studies show the problems. Isn't 100% good enough for the FDA? And what does that say for the ones FDA and industry controlled? To ask the question, of course, answers it. How do they do it? Here's how industry does it: I doubt that you are even concerned or you would have exposed these years ago. Aspartame also damages the mitochondria, the reason it interacts with all drugs and vaccines: No wonder Big Pharma got a law passed to prevent being sued. Don't get rid of the problem, get rid of the liability. What an abomination in a country founded on freedom and in violation of the Bill of the Rights which says you cannot remove the rights of the people or the rights of the states. (9 & 10). No drug is safe as long as the consumer is using aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal/Spoonful/E951/Canderel/Benevia/Naturtaste)


It has been known for a quarter of a century aspartame causes cancer and documented in the records of the FDA. So when the prestigious Ramazzini Study was done why did the FDA release information that it was not accepted. Furthermore, FDA knew Dr. Soffritti had done a new studying showing aspartame causes cancer even in low doses, and released a note without any reason for non-acceptance a day before the new study was being picked up by the world press. It was like shouting: "We're running out of excuses, quick put out a note and we'll confuse the people!" How obscene and foul. What animosity FDA must have for truth! Do you really think the studies will stop? A good lecture that goes into the acclaimed Ramazzini Study is "The Truth About Aspartame" by Dr. Russell Blaylock,


Because its commonly known and in the FDA records, as well as the protest of the National Soft Drink Assn in the Congressional Record, that aspartame breaks down at 86 degrees, it was stated when first approved, it would only be in dry products. A 5 year old child could tell you if you put Equal in hot coffee or tea you just heated it. The way you make Jello is put it in a pot with water and heat it?

In the Chicago Sun Times, October 22, l987, is this article: "NutraSweet Ready For Baked Goods"

"Sources said NutraSweet Co will announce today a new way for its aspartame sweetener product to be used in baked goods, such as cakes and cookies. The company said it would announce the development of a new technology at a press conference at the Ritz Carlton today, but would not comment further. The company has been trying to find a method for NutraSweet to be used in the baking process, because at high temperatures the water in aspartame breaks down and loses its sweet taste."

How can the NutraSweet Company have the gall to say its the "water" that breaks down. Sounds like someone raving mad from the looney bin! It's the methanol that gives the sweetness, and its the methanol that breaks down to formaldehyde and formic acid (ant sting poison). The entire molecule breaks down to diketopiperazine, the brain tumor agent. Even in Searle secret trade information submitted during congressional hearings it states: "With the spoon-for-spoon, we have no way of estimating maximum likely abuse and hence need to utilize data based on almost complete conversion to DKP." Almost complete conversion to a brain tumor agent, and you people know it.

In l993 you granted approval for aspartame to be used in baking. Now, I would like to know as well as the rest of the world what new technology prevents aspartame from breaking down? You approved this so you should have the technology, especially since you admitted to begin with that it couldn't be used in baking. If you can't answer me, perhaps you can answer Congress because they will certainly get a copy. The secret trade information also admits that aspartame can't be used for everything. Why did Dr. Kessler in l996 grant blanket approval? Is this what got him his job at Yale?


Methanol is classified as a narcotic. Louis, R. J. Sax's Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials, Eighth Edition, New York: Van Nostrand Reinhold (1992) pp. 2251 - 2252 The free methyl alcohol in aspartame causes chronic methanol poisoning. This effects the dopamine system of the brain and causes addiction. Methanol is a severe metabolic poison. How could you allow this. Many victims would give it up if they could fight the addiction. The Aspartame Information List, helps victims to get off this poison and Essence Recovery Center in Asheville, North Carolina is open to those who can't manage it on their own.


Today large grocery chains are beginning the removal of aspartame in their products in the UK. This is because of a study sponsored by Food Standards showing additives cause behavioral problems in children. We know which additive that is. But the FDA has known from the beginning and known aspartame destroys the brains of our children because Dr. John Olney who founded the field of neuroscience proved it to you in this report. If that wasn't enough Dr. Louis Elsas, pediatric professor, genetics, testified before Congress. Senator Howard Metzenbaum sponsored a bill that would have NIH do independent studies on behavioral problems in children, and what aspartame does to the fetus, drug interactions, and seizures: It just never made it out of committee. Senator Orrin Hatch had a lot to do with it. A press release dated February 11, l986 is titled: "HATCH SAYS NO TO COMMITTEE HEARINGS ON ASPARTAME." Senator Hatch received $2,500 from the soft drink political action committee prior to his reelection and $1,000 each from Daniel Searle, Wesley Dixon (Daniel Searle's brother-in-law), and William Searle (Gordon 1987,page 506 of US Senate 1987). Senator Hatch repeatedly blocked hearings looking into the safety of aspartame (Gordon 1987, page 506 of US Senate 1987). His alliance has always been to the aspartame industry and not to consumers who ingest the poison.

It's easy to understand the behavioral problems since there is 50% phenylalanine in this toxin which as an isolate floods the brain, lowers the seizure threshold and depletes serotonin. When serotonin is lowered it triggers are types of psychiatric and behavioral problems from bipolar or manic depression, to paranoia, mood swings, panic attacks and hallucinations. Representatives from Feingold have stated that the terms ADD and ADHD were not even used until the earl l980's when aspartame was approved.


If Dr. Olney was right you would see it in the population. 1 in 150 is born autistic except in New Jersey where it's 1 in 93. 1 in every 6 children in US has a neurological disorder. 50% of all children born have birth defects. This is what the FDA has done to babies and children by refusing to remove aspartame knowing by its own records that it's not only unsafe but a deadly addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug that interacts with all drugs and vaccines. Since thimerosal also can cause autism children don't have a chance. What a heinous crime against humanity, emphatic genocide. Since aspartame is also an abortifacient millions of babies have been murdered in their mother's womb. It makes me think of a scripture in Ezekiel, "the wicked will sleep a perpetual sleep and never awaken". There are no words strong enough to call this grisly crime before Jehovah God.

Today because diet pop is used in high schools to addict the children, cause confusion, memory loss, reduced IQ and a host of other horrors we have supplied to schools, pediatricians and OB-GYN, these articles by the experts: Report For Schools:


Aspartame triggers MS and many other neurodegenerative diseases: Thanks to our Mission Possible operations throughout the US and world constantly alerting the public many of these aspartame MS victims have walked out of wheelchairs. A very courageous woman Cori Brackett was diagnosed with MS. She had drank diet soda laced with aspartame for years. She was diagnosed with a huge lesion in her brain and she sat in a wheelchair hardly able to speak. She abstained from aspartame and after a difficult journey finally stepped out of her wheelchair. Eight months later her large lesion all but disappeared. She wasn't satisfied to simply get well but thought of others in the same condition. She and her husband produced Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World to alert others so they too could get well.

MS is epidemic because of aspartame and a new study shows that in women it's escalating 50% every decade. FDA by not recalling this poison that you have full knowledge is deadly you are absolutely responsible.

MS and neurological diseases triggered by aspartame are completely discussed in medical books including the mechanism by which this toxin causes the problem.

Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, by H. J. Roberts, M.D. Over 1000 page medical text on this holocaust.

Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D.,


On November 4, l987, the chairman of Monsanto's NutraSweet unit, Robert Shapiro, defended the product saying it was manufactured from natural compounds found in most foods. (Chicago Sun Times, 11/4/87, page 63).

Dr. Bill Deagle informed me he had seen the vats of bacteria the amino acids in aspartame are made from. He said "its toxic sludge". One can only wonder if Stauber who wrote the excellent books, "Toxic Sludge Is Good For You" and "Trust Us, We're Experts" exposing the propaganda used to market unsafe products, also knows.

Researching the issue further, I spoke to Dr. David Benson at the University of Connecticut, Molecular & Cell Biology. Professor Benson wrote a paper to provide students with background information on how amino acids are made by fermentation. His paper does mention some of the controversies surrounding the consumption of amino acids but takes neither a pro nor con stance on the genetic engineering of producing organisms or safety of amino acids. He said most all amino acids are genetically engineered. Aspartame is genetically engineered in E. Coli bacteria.

His excellent paper:

I definitely would not call amino acids made in this fashion natural, unless you believe what you find in your toilet is edible.


Since aspartame can precipitate diabetes one can understand the epidemic. It also simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, destroys the optic nerve, causes diabetics to go into convulsions and even interacts with insulin as diabetic specialist Dr. H. J. Roberts has written for years. Since aspartame approval he has treated these victims in the trenches of medical practice. The obesity epidemic is likewise easily explained since aspartame makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight. See Dr. Sandra Cabot's report in Report For Schools.


As if FDA hadn't poisoned the world enough Sucralose/Splenda was approved. We call it DDT-Lite. Here's the lethal science: Inasmuch as it liberates free chlorine (bleach) does this not make it adulterated and against the law as well? A good background story about this poison: Attorney James Turner and Citizens For Health have already asked for its recall and yet again FDA has not removed it from the marketplace. To add insult to injury it's well known that aspartame is a chemical hypersensitization product because its so poisonous. So when aspartame victims go to Splenda, another poison according to Dr. James Bowen they not only maintain the reactions to aspartame but pick up those from Splenda. And this is exactly what is happening as victims continue to complain of serious reactions.


Aspartame and MSG have an additive and synergistic effect. This interaction has been shown on scientific study. MSG and the aspartic acid in aspartame are excitotoxins, products that stimulate the neurons of the brain to death causing brain damage. (Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, Russell Blaylock, MD).

Glutamate researchers used aspartame as a placebo in studies so they could say MSG wouldn't react anymore than the placebo. In l993 Jack Samuels, President of the Truth in Labeling Campaign, was reviewing FDA docket files relating to an FDA study on the safety of amino acids in supplements. In the files, he found a letter dated March 22, 1991, from Andrew G. Ebert, PhD, Chairman, International Glutamate Technical Committee - a glutamate industry organization - in which Ebert admitted aspartame had been used since at least 1978 in test and placebo materials that his organization provided to scientists who study the safety of MSG. A review of studies conducted with the above-reference test material clearly indicates that some subjects reacted to both MSG test material and placebo material. Scientists conducting such studies concluded that since subjects reacted to both MSG and placebos, their reactions were not from MSG. Even though such logic is highly questionable, we now know subjects reacted to placebos because of the presence of aspartame that causes MSG-type responses in MSG sensitive people. Because of the disclosure of the use of aspartame in placebo material by Jack Samuels, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, in its July 1995 report on the safety of MSG in food, concluded the use of aspartame in placebo materials was inappropriate. FDA you knew this for 25 years and did nothing.


FDA you must remove aspartame from the market immediately. Dr. James Bowen's letter to FDA twenty years ago remains as accurate today. He stated aspartame is mass poisoning of the American public and more than 70+ countries of the world. Today its over 100. He also stated: "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." Why would you allow a product once listed with the pentagon in an inventory of prospective biochemical warfare weapons submitted to Congress? It destroys whole families because of damage to the hypothalmus and mitochondria causing male sexual dysfunction and ruination of female response. It blinds, destroys babies, triggers seizures and causes sudden death. Athlete Charles Fleming died of methanol poisoning. His autopsy showed the chronic methanol poisoning for years. His physician asked his wife to call the police because he was unaware that aspartame does this. Diane Fleming took 3 lie detector tests and passed, a Sunday school teacher. Yet, she was convicted and remains in a Virginia prison taking the rap for aspartame manufacturers who caused the death of her husband. She should be freed immediately. Aspartame is an imminent health hazard and based on the evidence of its deadliness reported must be removed. Its approval was not by science but political chicanery. FDA themselves originally asked for the indictment of Searle and revoked the petition for approval. Yet FDA has turned down every petition for ban having given their loyalty to aspartame manufacturers and betrayed the public trust.
