Dear Mrs. Martini,

I have read both the details you have supplied about the death of Charles Fleming and the imprisonment of his wife Diane for alleged methyl alcohol (methanol) poisoning, and the autopsy report signed by the pathologist and toxicologist involved in the case.

On the basis of the prodigious amounts of aspartame products he consumed and the finding of a severe fatal metabolic acidosis, coupled with a high concentration of methanol in the blood and no other reasonable explanation, I concur with the cause of death as methanol poisoning - in this case due to considerable methanol consumption in the form of aspartame products. I have devoted more than two decades to the study of aspartame disease, which I so named, and have published extensively thereon in the form of more than two dozen published articles and letters, and five books. I detailed the free methanol content of such products and the considerable pharmacologic and clinical consequences thereof - including addiction and probable death. An extensive chapter is devoted to this subject in my recent 1000 page text, ASPARTAME DISEASE: AN IGNORED EPIDEMIC. (A brochure is enclosed; bibliography furnished on request.) If the facts about this case that have been reviewed are correct, it is my firm opinion that Diane Fleming should be immediately freed from wrongful imprisonment to rejoin her family. Furthermore, the FDA should be so advised by the court, and recommend that aspartame products be labeled as an imminent health threat, and either so labeled or removed from the market.

Yours truly,
