Sound familiar? Cory Terry died while playing basketball of a heart attack. In 2012 a study in Miami admitted diet soda (which has aspartame in it) causes heart attack and strokes. http://news.yahoo.com/study-diet-soda-linked-increased-risk-heart-attack-172600831.html This has been known for decades and is discussed in H. J. Roberts, M.D. medical text, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" - http://www.sunsentpress.com
Another young man about the same age who played basketball several times a week, Charles Fleming, died and the hospital said it was methanol poisoning. This is common with aspartame. Dr. Roberts said aspartame is extremely addictive. The free methyl alcohol classified as a narcotic causes chronic methanol poisoning. This affects the dopamine system of the brain and causes the addiction. The chronic methanol poisoning was on his autopsy as well as cardiomegaly. The physician told his wife to call the police and she did and gave them the last thing he drank Gatorade where they had found methanol. It was interesting in talking to someone from GNC who told me their creatine has aspartame in it but is not labeled because of the amount. Fleming had added three times the amount, a creatine blast. Plus Fleming was addicted to aspartame and drank several diet drinks a diet and used aspartame in other products. It's a wonder he lived as long as he did. Diane Fleming, his wife, took three lie detector tests which found her to be innocent. The detective found a bottle of windshield wiper fluid in the garage that was sealed, the only prints, those of a detective. Their toxicologist had it tested and wrote it was not this product. Yet with full knowledge the prosecution used this in a case against his wife, and never showed the toxicologist's note. If the jury had known Diane Fleming would not be in a hardened prison in Virginia for over ten years with a 30 year sentence.
When the movie "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World" was being made, and Diane from prison is in it, I spoke to the detective. He said, "Diane Fleming is innocent but I was promoted and could not stop the indictment." Later a toxicologist studied the records and said the actual death was from the creatine. Several experts gave affidavits and said it was from aspartame. Today there has been more study and more opinion on the cause of death, but there is no doubt in my mind that if he had never used aspartame he would be alive today.
About basketball, athletes keep dropping dead because of aspartame. World renowned neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.,D., author of "Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills", wrote an athlete alert to warn them. http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_msg_scd.htm This is also discussed in another of Dr. Blaylock's medical texts, "Health and Nutrition Secrets to Save Your Life", http://www.russellblaylockmd.com
Dr. Roberts explains in his medical text and articles, that aspartame causes an irregular heart rhythm and interacts with "all" cardiac medication. It damages the cardiac conduction system and causes sudden death. Aspartame damages the mitochondria or powerhouse of the cell and interacts with drugs and vaccines. Here is one of Dr Roberts articles in these reports on aspartame and sudden cardiac death: http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_and_sudden_death.htm
Now let's talk about the stimulants. Many may remember when the FDA took ephedra off the market when Steve Bechler (23 year old Baltimore Oriole pitcher) dropped dead in West Palm Beach. Dr. Roberts lived in West Palm Beach so he immediately called the medical examiner and asked him how many diet drinks was he using but the medical examiner didn't know. A later article explained because of his fluctuating weight he would fast one day and drink diet soda all day the next. Since Steve Bechler used some ephedra FDA gladly took it off the market. However, ephedra is perfectly safe. Who headed the ephedra association but the famed Dr. John Olney who with Attorney James Turner tried to prevent approval of aspartame and he studied the FDA records. Read the Ephedra Story: http://www.wnho.net/ephedrastory.htm
I spoke to Dr. James Bowen about this case and he explained just like aspartame interacts with drugs and vaccines it could interact with ephedra, even though ephedra is safe and should be returned to the market.
Athletes continue to die from aspartame. You may remember Flo Jo, the runner, and seen her running with a Diet Coke in hand. Aspartame is a seizure triggering drug proven by the manufacturer's own study, and four types of seizures are listed on the FDA's own report of 92 symptoms including death. Read it on my web site, http://www.mpwhi.com Her case is in Dr. Roberts medical text. She was running, Diet Coke in hand, and died of a grand mal seizure. Even student athletes have dropped dead. Will we ever know how many athletes aspartame has killed? When I was in Barcelona, Dr. Alemany who did the famous Trocho Study on aspartame, said, "Betty, aspartame will murder 200 million people!" Has it already? Here is Dr. Alemany's study showing aspartame embalms living tissue and damages DNA. When you damage DNA you can destroy humanity. http://www.mpwhi.com/formaldehyde_from_aspartame.pdf The aspartame industry tried to assassinate Dr. Alemany character because they could not rebut it.
In 1986 the Community Nutrition Institute tried to have aspartame banned because so many had seizures and were going blind from the methanol. It was taken all the way to the Supreme Court but the aspartame industry has power. Just read the Aspartame Resource Guide below on how it got on the market after even the FDA revoked the petition for approval and tried to have the manufacturer indicted for fraud. I've even filed an imminent hazard amendment which the FDA has a week or ten days to answer. This was in 2007 and they wrote me a letter and said they had more important things to do. Even 12 toxicologists wrote the FDA to remove it because of all the studies showing it is a multipotential carcinogen. In 2009 FDA called me and when I said, "I lecture all over the world and people are sick and dying from aspartame." I was told, "So what, we have to depopulate."
Recently, Coke has this campaign to convince the public aspartame is safe because their sales of diet Coke keep dropping. Look at the DVD in the Aspartame Resource Guide from the UK and notice they show me holding up Dr. Roberts’s medical text - 1000 pages! in front of probably 1000 stockholders of Coke when I addressed their CEO at a stockholder meeting. Coke was #1 of the National Soft Drink Association (now American Beverage) and wrote a 33 page protest against aspartame which is in the congressional record on a banner on my web site. They have always known how deadly it is. Their campaign is such a joke. I suspect a lot of their stockholders had questions noting if a product is safe physicians don't write medical texts on how it kills.
Mission Possible has chapters in 43 countries and in 20 years you can be sure we have the facts around the world on aspartame. Today there are millions of hits with web sites, articles, studies and the facts. A big problem has been the front groups and trade organizations funded by the manufacturer and companies who use aspartame to convince the public this chemical poison is safe.
There are so many cases. One attorney called when another woman died of methanol poisoning who used aspartame products. They had arrested her husband. Some years ago a man called who said he had an aspartame blackout and drove his car 6 blocks asleep and killed 3 people. He spent 5 years in prison. When is it going to stop? Dr. Roberts, world expert, died a few months ago, and he wanted so badly to see Diane Fleming released before his death: http://www.mpwhi.com/h_j_roberts_has_died.htmp> Look at the epidemics in this country so many wonder about, with huge medical bills. Take aspartame off the market and as Dr. James Bowen said, "The government could save billions if not a trillion dollars!"
