Sugar Group Sours on Sweeteners:

Yesterday [Thursday, 14 Jan 2010] I put this note below on the list although it has been edited, the one dealing with Ajinomoto changing the name of aspartame to AminoSweet. The actual article is below that. We need to get this information all over the world so Mission Possible International has decided to have a contest to see who can give the best name for aspartame instead of AminoSweet. As you know, since methanol is what sweetens it, it's very misleading. Ajinomoto needs to know we are on to their game, that so many know how deadly aspartame is that they want to change the name so people will think they are using something else. Same thing happened with MSG. On February 15th, the winner will be posted on and they will be sent a copy of the Aspartame documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World.

Also, as you know Europe has approved Neotame. It's already in the US unfortunately. The contest will include a name that explains what Neotame is. As you recall, from what I wrote below, Dr. Jeffrey Bada told me its just the aspartame formula scrambled. So, as an example, it could be called "Scrambled Aspartame", but maybe somebody can come up with something better. Many years before Neotame was approved here Dr. H. J. Roberts had written a book in fiction called the Cacof Conspiracy, ( about a new millennial sweetener; would it too be poison? Sure enough Neotame became a new millennial sweetener, and of course, consumers react to it just like aspartame. Here is the last complaint received:

"From: Dawn B
Sent: Mon, January 11, 2010 9:34:35 PM
Subject: Re: [WNHO-Aspartame-Information] Neotame seeks a slice of the saccharin market

Some versions of Tang have Neotame in it. I got so sick this past summer just from one day of drinking Tang...."

So the winner who gives the best name for Neotame will get a copy of the Cacof Conspiracy by Dr. Roberts. This one needs to be made into a movie. Clint Eastman where are you?

For the physician who writes the best letter on caring for aspartame victims, and the most notable case, he or she will receive also a copy of Sweet Misery.

Remember these winners will be posted on on February 15th, and we will need addresses for mailing. If you missed the article yesterday it is below.

All my best,

This revealing article admits: "Only 4 percent of Americans had heard of Neotame; 6 percent of isomalt; 6 percent of acesulfame K; and 10 percent of maltitol. Conversely, nearly three-quarters of Americans were familiar with aspartame, which might explain why it's time for a name change."

They'll call it AminoSweet. The public has learned aspartame is deadly, an excitoneurotoxic, carcinogenic, addictive genetically engineered drug that damages the mitochondria and interacts with drugs and vaccines. It is also an adjuvant, an immune stimulator put in vaccines to activate them. The outcry against this poison is worldwide as educated consumers reject it. Ajinomoto's deceit is to change names so people will think it's a new and safe sweetener

Who knows more than the FDA about how deadly aspartame is? After all, they were the ones who originally asked the Justice Department to indicted the manufacturer for criminal fraud, It was an FDA Board of Inquiry that revoked the petition for approval based since it causes brain tumors. Their own toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told congress aspartame violates the Delaney Amendment, therefore, no ADI should be able to be set. FDA toxicologist, Dr. Jacqueline Verrett told Congress in 1987, six years after Don Rumsfeld used political muscle to get it on the market, that aspartame had never been proved safe. Yet, the FDA, who receives more than half its revenues from the manufacturers it regulates, serves above the law, does not answer petitions for ban and lies to us.

Some years ago I had a confrontation with an FDA staffer who confessed: "Betty, your argument is not with the FDA, its with Donald Rumsfeld who got it marketed after we revoked the petition for approval. Of course, we know its poison but do you really expect for us to say, yes we approved it but its not safe? " One thing FDA can do is keep the law, and answer documented petitions to ban it.

A Florida woman, upset when her child had an aspartame seizure really gave it to an FDA agent. Hesaid, "We said it caused seizures from the beginning, they should have listened."

AminoSweet is a deceptive alias since its the methanol, a severe metabolic poison, that sweetens. The 50,000 different proteins in our bodies are composed of amino acids, 20 of them, in elaborate combinations. Aspartame is a molecule made of two of them, isolated and unbuffered by the 18 others in food. These two are phenylalanine and aspartic acid. The third component of aspartame is 10% methyl-ester, which converts to methyl (wood) alcohol in digestion. This metabolic poison and class-A carcinogen is so deadly that a single ounce can be fatal. The wood alcohol converts to formaldehyde which embalms living tissue and damages DNA. (Trocho Study, Barcelona, 1998) Aspartame is so intense that very little will sweeten a diet drink or stick of gum, but the poisons gradually accumulate, devastating innocent consumers who become addicted to it.

40% of the molecule is aspartic acid which stimulates the neurons of the brain to death. It excites the brain cells until they exhaust and die, as detailed by Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. in his book "Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills."

Half, 50%, of aspartame is phenylalanine. When isolated it becomes a neurotoxin that floods the brain and lowers the seizure threshold, depleting serotonin and triggering psychiatric and behavioral problems.

Aspartame also converts to diketopiperazine, a powerful brain tumor agent. The whole chemical mess causes so many symptoms and diseases that it fills a medical text of over 1000 pages authored bythe famous H. J. Roberts, M.D.: "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic".

Since this deadly chemical poison is sold as a sweetener, like Dr. H. J. Roberts says, the name AminoSweet is very misleading. It is not the amino acids that sweeten but the methanol.

Rather than FDA permitting Ajinomoto to use another alias, FDA should ban aspartame as they have been asked to do through citizens petitions unanswered, against the law, and a 2007 petition calling aspartame an imminent health hazard, requiring an answer in ten days.

Consider a study in Liverpool explaining the interaction of deadly additives that interfere with the nervous system.

Aspartame and MSG have a synergistic and additive effect. Anyone using aspartame and prescription drugs risks interaction. Anyone who has taken a vaccination and uses aspartame risks interaction.Plus, of course, aspartame is an adjuvant. Dr. James Bowen said if you go from aspartame to Splenda, apoison you can maintain the reactions to aspartame and pick up those from Splenda: Consumers must educate themselves about all artificial sweeteners.

Think of all the celebrities using drugs and aspartame that have died like Heath Ledger: Aspartame causes sudden cardiac death. Think of the diabetic organizations that take money from the aspartame industry and push this on diabetics when it not only can precipitate diabetes, but simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy and interacts with insulin. Casey Johnson who just died, Johnson and Johnson heiress, worked with the Juvenile Diabetic Foundation who has pushed aspartame on diabetics for years. Was she using it and taking drugs and insulin? Aspartame is also an endocrine disrupting drug.

What is necessary to get it banned? The European Food Safety Authority, EFSA, is reviewing aspartame, knows the controversy, has read damning studies and interviewed experts on its toxicity. They know it is poison whether they say it or not. Food Standards in England knows aspartame is poison regardless of their defense of industry, and are doing a study:

Yet, what has the European Union done? They just approved Neotame!

Does the EU know how deadly aspartame is? Of course, I flew to Brussels with Felicity Mawson, Mission Possible UK, and presented them with all the damning information, congressional records, research on scientific peer reviewed studies and funding, and even showed them the 1000 page text by Dr. Roberts in 2002. What did they do when they did their review? They left out all the damning information and used industry's studies defending the product. I had given them information on these flawed studies which they entirely ignored.

Dr. Jeffrey Bada who did the Bada Reports on aspartame also reviewed Neotame when I faxed him the formula some years ago. He told me: "Betty, they just scrambled the formula of aspartame".

Countries around the world approved aspartame based on a rubberstamp and never did studies like in New Zealand, admitted by Food Standards. In England it was approved through a business deal:

If Ajinomoto wants to change the name of aspartame how about "Fraud and Deception". That will protect the consumer and explains the past history of aspartame as outlined in the Task Report, Request forIndictment by FDA, Bressler Report,, thousands of newspaper articles, and hundreds of thousands of articles on aspartame on the Internet giving factual information.

Their article was written by someone from the American Sugarcane League. They must know that anyone using sugar should be sure it's organic, not genetically engineered. I certainly agree with him about truth in labeling! (MSG). One thing the sugar industry needs to do is stop selling sugar products that contain aspartame. When I think of Monsanto and genetic engineering I recall the scripture at Revelation 11:18: "the time has come ... to bring to ruin those ruining the earth"

Letter: Sugar group sour on sweeteners

* Published: Jan 14, 2010 - Page: 8B

Ajinomoto, a Japanese company that produces food seasonings such as MSG and the chemical sweetener aspartame, recently announced the sweetener would now be called "AminoSweet."

According to the company, which produces more aspartame than anyone, "the name AminoSweet is appealing and memorable."

Time will tell if that prediction holds true, but the fact is artificial sweeteners are causing a lot of consumer confusion. A 2006 Harris Interactive poll showed almost no consumer awareness of many artificial sweeteners commonly found in foods and beverages.

Only 4 percent of Americans had heard of neotame; 6 percent of isomalt; 6 percent of acesulfame K; and 10 percent of maltitol. Conversely, nearly three-quarters of Americans were familiar with aspartame, which might explain why it's time for a name change.

Research indicates grocery shoppers want natural ingredients, not man-made products such as C14H18N2O5 (the molecular formula for aspartame).

Consumers should be given the information they need to make informed decisions instead of being subject to name changes and confusing nutrition labels that read like a chemistry textbook.

That is why the Sugar Association, a coalition of U.S. sugar producers that I chair, has petitioned the Food and Drug Administration for truth in labeling.

We've asked them to follow Canada's lead by listing sweeteners on the front of a package with the amount of those sweeteners in a product.

Did you know chemical sweeteners are prevalent in juices marketed to tots and even put into drinks designed to prevent dehydration in sick infants? Probably not. And things could get worse as food manufacturers take more of a cocktail approach to sweeten their products.

Sugar alone cannot achieve the ultra-sweet flavors many food manufacturers crave, so they turn to laboratories to produce chemicals that can be up to 13,000 times sweeter than the natural stuff.

That's exactly why it is time for the FDA to take action. Our petition has languished for nearly five years, entangled in a sea of bureaucratic red tape.

We believe people want sugar in their products, and we know that the hard-working farmers of Louisiana can produce that natural, safe sweetener.

Sugar has been grown here for more than 200 years, and we've never had to change our name. At 15 calories a teaspoon, its reputation is unparalleled, and it remains the benchmark to which chemical sweeteners aspire.
