In July famous Italian scientists made world news by reporting an impeccable three-year study on aspartame proving it causes malignant brain tumors, lymphoma, and leukemia. In Sept they added kidney cancer and cancer of the cranial peripheral nerves. Next the New Mexico Environmental Improvement Board granted Stephen Fox's request to convene a five day hearing to consider banning this poison from the state. The full week hearing is scheduled for July.

The folks at Merisant have cranked up the smoke machine to convince us the Italian doctors are morons, though congressional testimony, scientific studies and scores of renowned MD's have said the same thing for years. An anonymous editorial that reads like an ad appeared in the Albuquerque Journal; next the Santa Fe New Mexican ran a letter from Paul Block, Merisant CEO, with the absurd title ASPARTAME SAFE.

Block tells us: "there is simply no question aspartame is safe...200 studies over 30 years, etc., etc., etc." Rejoice that an unbiased, impartial authority, with no prejudice, absolutely neutral, servant of enlightenment, purity and truth recommends a neurotoxin he stands to cop an extra ten million from. In September Merisant bonused Block with four percent of the first $100 million, 5% of the next and 6% thereafter. Plus his regular pay, of course, and the limousine, and the airplane, and, and, and ...

Surely no one would think such meager monetary considerations color Block's allegiance to truth. He just drank too much diet pop and it blew his memory, #9 on the FDA list of 92 symptoms from 10,000 aspartame complaints. Block forgot the 17 page expose in September's Ecologist, and many renowned doctors raising outcry, publishing books, magazine and Internet articles, and by radio warning America of this dread and growing disaster. Block can't recall that once FDA asked the Justice Department to investigate the manufacturer for filing fraudulent reports to get it approved. Caught dead to rights, their defense lawyers hired the prosecutors and the case died with the statute of limitations. The Godfather hired the district attorney!

This wasn't the first time. A parade of FDA officials, Commissioners included, have hired into the aspartame business. Every test endorsing it was paid for by the manufacturer. All independent studies say its toxic. The Italian researchers declared it's a Multi-Potential Carcinogen. Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills says: "This study should terrify mothers and all those consuming aspartame sweetened products. This was a carefully done study which clearly demonstrated a statistically significant increase in several types of lymphomas and leukemias in rats. Both of these malignancies have increased significantly in this country since the widespread use of aspartame." FDA has received more complaints on aspartame than all other food additives combined, so they stopped taking complaints.

Aspartame makers are honorable men, all honorable men! So they put little blue packs of rat poison on restaurant tables worldwide, and the cursed stuff triggers diabetes, destroys the mind, eradicates sexual function, destroys sight and makes you fat! A test on 7 monkeys gave 5 grand mal seizures and killed number six. We're the monkeys now!

At every point in the fertility process aspartame destroys, beginning with the gleam in Mom and Pop's eyes. "It destroys female sexual response and induces male dysfunction," says James Bowen, M.D., "Beyond this, aspartame disrupts fetal development by aborting it or inducing defects. And if a live child is born aspartame may have heinously damaged the DNA of the baby, cursing future generations. The schools are filled with children with ADD, ADHD and behavioral problems triggered by this neurotoxin." The next phase in New Mexico's battle to free itself from aspartame begins with the N.M. Board of Pharmacy's consideration of a complete ban from children's vitamins and medications in Albuquerque on November 14 & 15. Co-petitioner with Stephen Fox (505-983-2002) is Ken Stoller, M.D., Pediatrics and Associate Professor of Pediatrics at UNM School of Medicine (505-820-6234).

Aspartame propaganda is tired and worn out. All shenanigans are a matter of public record. You can read the FDA audit, Bressler Report, damning Center for Disease Control investigation and protest of National Soft Drink Association on To Paul Block: Everybody's sick of the denials after a quarter century of controversy, sickness, ruination and death. The world has had enough. You don't have to lose your bonus, Paul, just change the label to read rat poison. The world already knows it's a killer.
