I have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL
CONFERENCE on ASPARTAME: Marketed as 'NutraSweet,' 'Equal,' and
In the keynote address by the EPA, they announced that there was
an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus, and they
did not understand what toxin was causing this to be rampant
across the United States. I explained I was there to lecture on
exactly that subject.
When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood
alcohol in ASPARTAME coverts to formaldehyde and then to formic
acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. (Formic acid is
the poison found in the sting of fire ants.) The methanol
toxicity mimics multiple sclerosis; thus, people were being
diagnosed with having multiple sclerosis in error. The multiple
sclerosis is not a death sentence, where methanol toxicity is.
In the case of systemic lupus, we are finding it has become
almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially Diet Coke
and Diet Pepsi drinkers. Also, with methanol toxicity, the
victims usually drink three to four 12-oz. cans of them per day,
some even more. In the cases of systemic lupus, which is
triggered by ASPARTAME, the victim usually does not know that
the aspartame is the culprit. The victim continues its use
irritating the lupus to such a degree, that sometimes it becomes
When we get people off the aspartame, those with systemic lupus
usually become asymptotic. Unfortunately, we cannot reverse this
disease. On the other hand, in the case of those diagnosed
with Multiple Sclerosis, (when in reality, the disease is
methanol toxicity), most of the symptoms disappear.
We have seen cases where their vision has returned and even
their hearing has returned. This also applies to cases of
During a lecture I said "If you are using ASPARTAME [NutraSweet,
Equal, Spoonful, etc.] And you suffer from fibromyalgia
symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps,
vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression,
anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision or memory
loss-you probably have ASPARTAME DISEASE!" People were
jumping up during the lecture saying, "I've got this. Is it
It is rampant. Some of the speakers at my lecture even were
suffering from these symptoms. In one lecture attended by the
Ambassador of Uganda, he told us that their sugar industry is
adding aspartame! He continued by saying that one of the
industry leader's sons could no longer walk -- due in part to
We have a very serious problem. Even a stranger came up to Dr.
Esparto (one of my speakers) and myself and said, "Could
you tell me why so many people seem to be coming down with
MS?" During a visit to a hospice, a nurse said that six of
her friends, who were heavy Diet Coke drinkers, had all been
diagnosed with MS. This is beyond coincidence.
Here is the problem. There were Congressional Hearings when
Aspartame was originally included as a sweetener in 100
different products. Since this initial hearing, there have been
two subsequent hearings, but to no avail. Nothing has been done.
The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets.
Now there are over 5,000 products containing this chemical, and
the PATENT HAS EXPIRED!
At the time of this first hearing, people were going blind. The
methanol in the Aspartame converts to formaldehyde in the retina
of the eye. Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of drugs
as cyanide and arsenic - DEADLY POISONS! Unfortunately, it
just takes longer to quietly kill, but > >it is killing
people and causing all kinds of neurological problems.
Aspartame changes the brain's chemistry. It is the reason for
severe seizures. This drug changes the dopamine level in the
brain. Imagine what this drug does to patients suffering from
Parkinson's Disease. This drug also causes birth defects.
There is absolutely no reason to take this product. It is NOT A
DIET PRODUCT! The congressional record said, "It
makes you crave Carbohydrates and will make you FAT." Dr.
Roberts stated that when he got patients off aspartame, their
average weight loss was 19 pounds per person. The formaldehyde
stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs.
Aspartame is especially deadly for diabetics. All physicians
know what wood alcohol will do to a diabetic. We find that
physicians believe that they have patients with retinopathy,
when in fact, it is caused by the aspartame. The aspartame keeps
the blood sugar level out of control, causing many patients to
go into a coma.
Unfortunately, many have died. People were telling us at the
conference of the American College of Physicians, that they had
relatives that switched from saccharin to an aspartame product
and how that relative had eventually gone into a coma. Their
physicians could not get the blood sugar levels under control.
Thus, the patients suffered acute memory loss and eventually
coma and death. Memory loss is due to the fact that asperity
acid and phenylalanine are neurotoxic without the other amino
acids found in protein.
Thus it goes past the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the
neurons of the brain. Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, said,
"The ingredients stimulates the neurons of the brain to
death, causing brain damage of varying degrees. Dr.
Blaylock has written a book entitled "EXCITOTOXINS: THE
TASTE THAT KILLS" (Health Press, 1-800-643-2665).
Dr. H. J. Roberts, diabetic specialist and world expert on
poisoning, has also written a book entitled "DEFENCE
AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE" (1-800-814-9800). Dr. Roberts
tells how aspartame poisoning is escalating Alzheimer's Disease,
and indeed it is. As the hospice nurse told me, women are being
admitted at 30 years of age with Alzheimer's Disease.
Dr. Blaylock and Dr. Roberts will be writing a position paper
with some case histories and will post it on the INTERNET.
According to the Conference of the American College of
Physicians, "We are talking about a plague of neurological
diseases caused by this deadly poison."
Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when aspartame was first
marketed. He said, "His diabetic patients presented memory
loss, confusion, and severe vision loss." At the Conference
of the American College of Physicians, doctors admitted that
they did not know. They had wondered why seizures were rampant
(the phenylalanine in aspartame breaks down the seizure
threshold and depletes serotonin, which causes manic depression,
panic attacks, rage and violence).
Just before the Conference, I received a fax from Norway, asking
for a possible antidote for this poison because they are
experiencing so many problems in their country. This
"poison" is now available in 90 PLUS countries
worldwide. Fortunately, we had speakers and ambassadors at the
Conference from different nations who have pledged their help.
We ask that you help too. Print this article out and warn
everyone You know. Take anything that contains aspartame
back to the store. Take the "NO ASPARTAME TEST" and
send us your case history.
I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame, knows how
deadly it is. They fund the American Association, American
Dietetic Association, Congress, and the Conference of the
American College of Physicians.
The New York Times, November 15, 1996, ran an article on how the
American Dietetic Association takes money from the food industry
to endorse their products. Therefore, they can not criticize any
additives or tell about their link to MONSANTO. How bad is
this? We told a mother who had a child on NutraSweet to get off
the product. The child was having grand mal seizures every day.
The mother called her physician, who called the ADA, who told
the doctor not to take the child off the NutraSweet. We are
still trying to convince the mother that the Aspartame is
causing the seizures.
Every time we get someone off of aspartame, the seizures stop.
If the baby dies, you know whose fault it is, and what we are up
There are 92 documented symptoms of aspartame, from coma to
death. The majority of them are all neurological, because the
aspartame destroys the nervous system. Aspartame Disease
is partially the cause to what is behind some of the mystery of
the Desert Storm health problems. The burning tongue and other
problems discussed in over 60 cases can be directly related to
the consumption of an aspartame product. Several thousand
pallets of diet drinks were shipped to the Desert Storm troops.
(Remember heat can liberate the methanol from the aspartame at
86 degrees F.) Diet drinks sat in the 120-degree F Arabian sun
for weeks at a time on pallets. The servicemen and women drank
them all day long. All of their symptoms are identical to
aspartame poisoning. Dr. Roberts says consuming Aspartame at the
time of conception can cause birth defects."
According to Dr. Louis Elsas,
Paediatrician and Professor of
Genetics at Emory University, in his testimony before Congress,
the phenylalanine concentrates in the placenta, causes mental
retardation. (In the original lab tests, animals developed
brain tumours; phenylalanine breaks down into DXP, a brain tumour
When Dr. Espisto was lecturing on aspartame, one physician in
the audience, a neurosurgeon, said, "When they remove brain
tumours, they have found high levels of aspartame in them."
The FDA has now approved Stevia, a sweet food, NOT AN ADDITIVE,
which helps in the metabolism of
sugar, which would be ideal for diabetics, as a dietary
supplement for years; the FDA has outlawed this sweet food
because of their loyalty to MONSANTO. If it says "SUGAR
FREE" on the label - DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT.
Senator Howard Hetzenbaum wrote a bill that would have warned
all infants, pregnant mothers and children of the dangers of
aspartame. The bill would have also instituted independent
studies on the problems existing in the population (seizures,
changes in brain chemistry, changes in neurological and
behavioural symptoms). The powerful drug and chemical
lobbies, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an
unsuspecting public, killed this bill. Since the
Conference of the American College of Physicians, we hope to
have the help of several world leaders.
Again, please help us. There are a lot of people out there who
must be warned, please let them know this information.
