To all members of the Firefighter's Union:
I'm Dr. Betty Martini, D. Hum, Founder, of Mission Possible International. We're a non-profit, global volunteer force warning the world off aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal/Spoonful,Canderel, E951, etc.). The reason this is of the utmost importance to you is that many times in the field you give dopamine, and it interacts with aspartame. In fact, aspartame is only masquerading as an additive, and is an excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug that interacts with all drugs and vaccines. http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_interacts.htm So the information I'm giving you can save a lot of lives.
There is a medical text on it, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, http://www.sunsentpress.com or 1-800-827-7991 by H. J. Roberts, M.D., 1038 pages of diseases, symptoms, drug interactions and other horrors caused by this deadly chemical poison.
Many times you're called for the very problems aspartame triggers. For instance, today sudden cardiac death is so common defibrillators are being sold across the counter. Aspartame triggers an irregular heart rhythm, damages the cardiac conduction system and causes sudden death. You have about 7 minutes to save them. You've probably heard about so many athletes dropping dead. When they run they deplete magnesium which protects the heart and brain from excitotoxins, and if they are using aspartame like in diet drinks, or the other 6000 products they don't have a chance. And its not a diet product but a drug that makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight. http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_msg_scd.htm
Aspartame is also a seizure triggering drug that interacts with anti-seizure medication like Dilantin. Here's a pivotal study by the manufacturer themselves showing 5 out of 7 monkeys had grand mal seizures and one died. http://www.dorway.com/raoreport.txt
The next question you might ask is how did it get approved if it's so deadly. The FDA revoked the petition for approval because it could not be proven safe and triggered brain tumors. Here is the actual government document. http://www.wnho.net/fda_petition1.doc In front of this report is a clip from the aspartame documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, http://www.amazon.com and Barnes & Noble, with James Turner, Attorney, explaining how Don Rumsfeld who was then CEO of Searle called in his markers and got it approved. Many people now call Aspartame Disease, Rumsfeld Disease. Here is an excellent article that tells the whole story: http://www.rense.com/general67/rum.htm Should you wish a copy of Sweet Misery if you buy it between now and June 30th, 2006 from http://www.soundandfury.tv the proceeds will go to the attorney of Diane Fleming who is interviewed in the film. Her husband Charles was a body builder and athlete, drinking lots of diet pop with aspartame and playing basketball. It liberates free methyl alcohol causing chronic methanol poisoning. In fact, this affects the dopamine system of the brain and causes addiction. When they saw methanol on the autopsy they thought she poisoned him, and this Sunday school teacher has been imprisoned for four years for a crime committed by the manufacturers of aspartame. We are trying to get her out. Remember methanol is classified as a narcotic. Aspartame changes the dopamine level of the brain.
Aspartame could have easily been sold as rat poison, but there was also another use. It was actually listed with the pentagon in an inventory of prospective biochemical warfare weapons submitted to Congress. Here is the story from the prestigious Ecologist: http://www.wnho.net/the_ecologist_aspartame_report.htm
If you know people who have used aspartame here is the report from neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., "What To Do If You Have Used Aspartame": On the bottom of the page are Dr. Blaylock's books including xcitotoxins: The Taste That Kills. To make matters worse aspartame is a chemical hypersensitization agent so victims often think they are now allergic. Dr. Blaylock says in a lecture, "Understand the reactions to aspartame are not allergic but toxic like arsenic and cyanide." So the last thing we want them to do is go from one poison to another like Splenda, a chlorocarbon poison we call DDT-Lite. http://www.wnho.net/splenda_chlorocarbon.htm If they do this according to one physician they can maintain the aspartame reactions and pick up those from Splenda as well. Attorney James Turner and Citizens for Health have already petitioned the FDA to ban it.
Aspartame has not only caused an epidemic of obesity but also diabetes. Dr. Roberts, a diabetic specialist, says that it not only can precipitate diabetes but simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, destroys the optic nerve, causes diabetics to go into convulsions and interacts with insulin. Always ask your victims if they are using aspartame if they are conscious.
The Idaho Observer publishes 24 page booklets on aspartame for distribution called the Artificially Sweetened Times. http://www.idaho-observer.com I remember giving one to a medic driving an ambulance. I later saw him in a hospital and he told me it changed his life. He became an activist, in fact, teaching other medics and he said to me "You wouldn't believe how many lives we are now saving thanks to the information."
Also, you should know that the 50% phenylalanine in aspartame as an isolate is neurotoxic, floods the brain and lowers the seizure threshold, depleting serotonin. When you lower serotonin it triggers all kinds of behavioral and psychiatric problems. And, of course, it interacts with all anti-depressants. It is a psycho drug.
I imagine you also have questions on what to use if you want to avoid sugar or diabetic. A sweet herb called stevia helps in the metabolism of sugar and is sold in most health food stores. There is also Just Like Sugar which is sold in Whole Foods and Wild Oats. In this case neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., asked for an analysis to make sure there was no MSG or other excitotoxins. The analysis which we have shows that all it contains is chicory, calcium, Vitamin C and orange peel. Dr. Blaylock also tested it on himself and says there is no hypoglycemic reaction. He wrote in his newsletter - http://www.blaylockreport.com "Finally, a safe sweetener".
Aspartame is on the market illegally because it violated the Delaney Amendment which says if a product causes cancer in animals you can't put it in food. http://www.wnho.net/cancer_study_obligates_recall.htm Even the National Soft Drink Association admitted it is against the law because it violates adulteration statutes, breaks down at 86 degrees. See the congressional record on http://www.wnho.net They are now called American Beverage. And because aspartame is adulterated is violates interstate commerce laws.
So I hope I've answered all the questions you might have. While you don't treat this problem, you should know that aspartame destroys families. It damages the hypothalamus and mitochondria and causes male sexual dysfunction. It also ruins female response. It's an endocrine disrupting drug so can cause infertility - stimulates prolactin. It is a teratogen and causes birth defects and mental retardation. It's also an abortifacient. Now you know why you are spammed with advertisements on Viagara!
If I haven't answered all your questions be sure to get in touch. Also check out http://www.wnho.net and http://www.dorway.com The Aspartame Toxicity Center is http://www.holisticmed.com/aspartame A new site being set up will have a list of Aspartame Detoxification Centers. We also are taking aspartame brain tumor cases for litigation in New York and New Jersey.
May Jehovah God's blessings be with you in your life saving work. While I believe I have all the emails for this union remember there are many firefighters who need this information. I hope you will spread the word. I'm always happy to lecture.
