September is Aspartame Awareness Month. This year we want to do something different. For years victims have written their congressman or Senator who send the letters to the FDA. The FDA send back propaganda. This year we want to flood Congress with what has been going on and the lies the FDA has been telling. Below is my letter to Senator Johnny Isakson to give you an idea of what to write.

There are also other things you can do to alert the public. You can give out the article: "No Safe Dose of Aspartame": Or you can write your own article, especially if you are a victim but be sure to add web sites.

When you visit restaurants you can give the manager and waiters the article: "Waiter, Kindly Remove this Neurotoxin from Our Table" : This helps to get this poison out of restaurants so unwarned customers won't use it.

School has started and you can email our Report For Schools to schools, Board of Educations, PTA, nursery schools , etc. Let's save the children:

Below the letter to the Senator you will see the Aspartame Resource Guide which you can email all over the Internet and send to your doctor and other medical facilities and hospitals.

Let's really make a difference and save millions. Hopefully we will get something done about the Fatal Drugs Allowed folks, and get this poison off the market. Here is the UPI Investigation which also gives you a history of the corruption:

Let's see how many lives we can save in September. If nothing else forward this report. The web site has so many excellent articles to forward. Show some of the videos and documentaries in meetings and offices, especially Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World. Diane Fleming is in this movie. Her husband died of methanol from aspartame and the interaction with creatine. She was convicted of poisoning her husband Charles even though she took 3 lie detector tests and the detective on the job told me she was innocent. When she was on TV even the police would not testify against her. She has remained in prison for over ten years, another horror story of aspartame.

All my best,

Dear Senator Isakson:

September is Aspartame Awareness Month and its about time that somebody in Congress lets the FDA know they must operate within the law just like everybody else. As you will see from the Aspartame Resource Guide the FDA who years ago were on the side of the people, no more, never proved aspartame safe. Instead they tried to indict G. D. Searle but both U.S. Prosecutors Sam Skinner and William Conlon hired on with the defense team and the statute of limitations expired. Actually I didn't know there were any statute of limitations for fraud but this is what the record says. So the FDA's Board of Inquiry revoked the petition for approval based on the fact that it could not be proven safe and caused brain tumors in original studies. The molecule breaks down to diketopiperazine, a brain tumor agent. Rats developed brain tumors and G. D. Searle excised them, put the rats back in the study and when the rats died resurrected them on paper. Don Rumsfeld got it marketed, not the FDA, who at the time would never allow this chemical poison on the market.

When I visited Dr. Maria Alemany who did the Trocho Study in Barcelona he told me that aspartame would kill 200 million people. His study shows that the free methyl alcohol in aspartame that converts to formaldehyde embalms living tissue and damages DNA. When you damage DNA you can destroy humanity. You could see the formaldehyde in the tissue. Read the whole story in the Aspartame Resource Guide below on how this deadly poison was marketed.

One day I ran into someone from the FDA at an expo and asked him why today they lie to the public about the safety of aspartame. He said, "Your argument is with Don Rumsfeld. We did everything we could to keep this chemical off the market and it was taken out of our hands. What do we say, "it's not safe but we approved it"?

So the FDA lies. The propaganda is absurd. Tell them about the free methyl alcohol and they will tell you there is more methanol in oranges than in aspartame. In oranges or fruit and vegetables the methanol is accompanied by ethanol, the classic antidote to methanol toxicity and takes it safely out of your body. Also, the methanol is bound to pectin. In aspartame its free. Here is the aspartame propaganda used by industry and the FDA rebutted with medical references. If FDA can help it they don't answer at all.

In 2002 I filed a Citizens Petition for ban of aspartame. The law requires that this petition be answered in 180 days. It has been ten years and they have not answered. Twice they have written and said that they have more important things to do, and even use a regulation. So they never intend to answer. So I filed an amendment, an imminent health hazard. This has to be answered in a week or ten days. This was sent in 2007, and they have refused to answer it.

So what do you do? People keep on dying. A victim and Mission Possible Chicago, Lane Shore, has lost 8 members of his family from aspartame and the imminent health hazard petition has gone unanswered for years. Aspartame can precipitate diabetes, simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, destroys the optic nerve, causes diabetics to go into convulsions and interacts with insulin. The methanol causes them to lose limbs. Aspartame has caused a diabetic epidemic. Lane's wife is addicted and is diabetic. She first lost her feet, then her legs and has had operation after operation.

How about Freedom of Information? Isn't it the law that under Freedom of Information the FDA must answer? They don't. Here is a letter I sent under Freedom of Information in 2010 they have never answered. I also sent a fax on one point and they answered this, but when I wrote back with more questions they refused.

Consider some of the questions under Freedom of Information. Stuart Pape of the National Yogurt Association has petitioned the FDA twice to allow aspartame in yogurt and dairy products without labeling. It's against the law, of course, as it requires a PKU warning. This means you too Senator could be consuming this poison. It's cumulative. You can detox but you can't remove the formaldehyde. You are embalmed. Why doesn't the FDA want to answer?

Dr. Ken Stoller also petitioned the FDA to ban aspartame years ago and they still haven't answered him either. Even twelve toxicologists asked the FDA to ban aspartame: This was after Dr. Morando Soffritti proved aspartame is a multipotential carcinogen and aspartame caused cancer in original studies and violated the Delaney Amendment. There is "NO" safe dose of aspartame. Notice this was admitted by the FDA toxicologist who originally asked for the indictment of G. D. Searle.

How serious can it get? Over a decade ago I called Jerome Bressler who authorized the famous Bressler Report about the seriousness of the shenanigans committed by G. D. Searle in aspartame studies to cover up the truth. He had retired and I wanted to thank him for all he did. He was the last of the FDA heros before FDA became nothing more than an extension of Big Pharma when Rumsfeld got aspartame marketed with the help of President Reagan after the FDA had revoked the petition for approval. Bressler was very upset. He said that information on two studies had been removed by FDA and they were very very serious and the public needed to be warned. He said, "Betty, please please find what the FDA removed. These are teratology studies and the public has to know. When I added the Bressler Report to web I had noticed where information had been removed and I didn't want to be the only one to know this information and notified Doctors H. J. Roberts and Russell Blaylock who also called Bressler. Dr. Roberts even wrote his congressman who wrote the FDA and was told it was confidential. Millions of mothers using aspartame during pregnancy and not knowing it causes birth defects and the FDA thought that information was too confidential for the public to know!!!!!!

I became a friend of Jerome Bressler as did Lane Shore who lives in Chicago. In many conversations he told us how deadly aspartame is and all that Searle did to get it on the market anyway with no concern for human health. It took us 8 years to find those documents and add them back to the Bressler Report, with comments from FDA that aspartame indeed causes birth defects. Even when Jerome Bressler was dying and in a nursing home/assisted living he would tell people there "please don't use aspartame, its poison". We even brought in a reporter from the Chicago Tribune who listened to Bressler as he told things like how Searle would try to keep out the FDA until they said they would get a court order if they didn't let them in.

Below in the Aspartame Resource Guide notice a new book, "While Science Sleeps" and you'll see that Dr. Woodrow Monte also obtained four more studies showing aspartame causes birth defects. He found out that G. D. Searle made a deal with the FDA to seal and hide the birth defect studies and never allow the public to know they were consuming a product that would destroy their babies. Now you understand the epidemic of autism. Dr. Bill Deagle, his environmental association, the European Environmental Association, Dallas clinic and a Dr. Rae met and said soon you won't find a baby in the western world that doesn't have some version of autism. The FDA should be closed down. Their own toxicologist, Dr. Jacqueline Verrett wrote a book against the FDA, "Eating May be Hazardous To Your Health" many years ago. It's out of print but you can get a used copy on the Internet and even she agreed it should be closed down.

When I lectured in New Zealand I always remember the lady who lost 8 babies and the one that survived is schizophrenic. It's also an abortifacient. Aspartame also triggers psychiatric and behavioral problems because of the depletion of serotonin and interacts with all antidepressants. It damages the mitochondria or powerhouse of the cell. She said her husband tried to kill her and eventually hung himself, another use of the poison. She became paranoid and tried to kill herself. When she was going blind from the methanol someone who had Dr. H. J. Roberts medical text, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" told her aspartame blinds and she got off of it. She told me she was 60 years old and was just now beginning to live. Look what it has done to lives. Dr. Roberts also says when you see children killing children you have to consider aspartame. One woman used aspartame during three pregnancies and has three autistic children. I've heard several of the aspartame experts say mental hospitals are full of patients that are nothing more than aspartame victims.

What is happening is aspartame victims write their Senators and Congressmen and their letter is sent to the FDA. The FDA sends the propaganda back to the Senator who sends it back to the victim. Nothing gets accomplished. This has happened for three decades. It has to stop. These petitions have to be answered and the FDA has to stop lying to the public. I hope you will help and finally do something. World expert H. J. Roberts, M.D. has written the 1000 page medical text of all the horrors that aspartame triggers or precipitates. It's now a global plague...

Has the FDA ever called me? Yes. It was a very late call and my husband said, "The FDA wants to talk to you." I said, "I lecture all over the world and people are sick and dying." He said, "So what, we have to depopulate!" Obviously, its going to take Congress to do something about the deplorable situation. There is no safe dose of aspartame as the FDA had told Congress: Almost 100% of independent scientific peer reviewed studies on aspartame show how deadly it is, but evidence is something FDA has ignored all these years.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Safe Sweetener: Just Like Sugar, 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, "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.

Aspartame and MS:

Aspartame Warning Flyer for distribution: The Lethal Science of Splenda: Studies have shown that sucralose can:

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:

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, 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. 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".

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:

Searle's problem was they couldn't get studies to show safety. For example, in the Bressler Report: 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 as U. S. Prosecutor was William Conlon, who 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:

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 defects.

About that time Dr. James Bowen wrote FDA that "aspartame is mass poisoning of the American public and 70 countries" - today over 100. 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, get 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: 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. It's 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: Seizures are listed 5 times on the FDA report of 92 symptoms that range from male sexual dysfunction to death: 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 banned. 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:

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": 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.

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.

Here are summaries of the two aspartame studies, Ramazzini, that showed aspartame to be a multipotential carcinogen, passed down through the mother:

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 demonstration of APMs multipotential carcinogenicity.

Over six years ago I petitioned the FDA to ban aspartame. The FDA has 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 it. Methanol also binds to pectin. In aspartame there is no ethanol. Here is their basic propaganda answered with references:

A detox formula for aspartame victims endorsed by Dr. Russell Blaylock, Neurosurgeon: Available are his excellent books and a CD: "The Truth About Aspartame"

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 effects 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 it's 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: 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.
