Subject: Your article on aspartame - "Aspartame and Artificial Sweeteners: Sweet or Toxic?"
To Yvette Long, American Chronicle: Your article: http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/viewArticle.asp?articleID=26423
I find it hard to believe you would look for your answers to this issue by contacting a company using it, and defending their product. Actually, the National Soft Drink Assn, now American Beverage, wrote about aspartame toxicity, and its in the congressional record, so the pop companies knew before they put poison in their products. Here's a letter about it and the protest, that will never be answered. http://www.wnho.net/open_letter_dick_adamson.htm In fact, it was put in the congressional record because the NSDA had protested and then turned around and lobbied for NutraSweet.
As to the letter about MS, be assured of its accuracy. Here is a press release today about the MS issue and aspartame: http://www.bolenreport.net/feature_articles/feature_article062.htm It was just published by the Bolen Report.
Yvette, if anyone knows the truth it's me because I'm the one who lectured for the World Environmental Conference, and many, many MS victims walked out of wheelchairs after getting off aspartame. One of them Cori Brackett went on to make a movie about it, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, http://www.amazon.com
In the past decade since I first lectured and released that information, this issue has been a school project, and students call me quite frequently about it wanting information and facts. It just so happened that one did today and below my signature is my response to her, to help with her project. Dr. H. J. Roberts has since produced a medical text that includes everything I lectured about: "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic", http://www.wnho.net/mh_aspartame_letter.htm and IFIC: http://www.dorway.com/offasprt.html . You even listed the American Beverage Association to whom I wrote the letter above who will not answer. They won't when they're caught. You might tell them "If aspartame is so safe why not answer Martini's letter". How can they argue with their own records which are public?
It's interesting that with millions of web sites and "independent" scientific peer reviewed studies available you only looked at one side of the issue - those paid to protect this poison. As I said in that paper, they have let loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting and uninformed public. This article has continued to saturate the globe and probably always will, the information saving the lives of those who consume this addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug masquerading as an additive.
Read on below. Either straighten out the facts or publish my letter.

Hi Kristian and Rebecca,
You'll be happy to know that all your answers are on http://www.dorway.com/nomarkle.html
I'm the one who lectured for the World Environmental Conference, actually in l995. You will see on this web site my invitation to speak for the WEC, and their address. It was Dr. Clarice Gaylord of the EPA who gave the keynote address. Under "EPA Misinformation" you see my correspondence with Dr. Gaylord, with her even admitting why the EPA lied about it. http://www.dorway.com/gaylord.txt She gave me permission to put it on web.
Sometime later I was on a list of neurologists explaining I had lectured and that MS was, indeed, epidemic which they did not believe. It was headed by a Dr. Rivner. On the web site above you will see my original post addressed to Dr. Rivner and below it where Nancy Markle sort of disorganized it and signed her name.
Around the end of l998 the article kept coming back to me but with her name. Someone had put it on 450 global networks and it made world news. But people were looking for Nancy Markle who I didn't know. It didn't take the media more than 20 minutes to realize it was me, but they didn't want to expose aspartame which is sold as NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, Canderel, Benevia, etc. Immediately front groups were set up to say it was a hoax, but they didn't get away with it because I added my name and telephone number so people could verify the facts. For about a year the phone rang every two minutes around the clock as aspartame consumers from all over the world found out where their symptoms and diseases originated. Today all those symptoms and diseases are documented in a medical text by H. J. Roberts, M.D., called Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, http://www.sunsentpress.com or 1-800-827-7991.
You will note in Dr. Gaylord's conversation with me that she admits it was not from a scientific study that she said there was an "epidemic of MS and lupus" but from field reports across the nation. This is exactly how I knew, and many times aspartame disease would mimic MS (although it also can precipitate it) so that just getting these aspartame consumers off this poison eliminated their symptoms, and they went on to resume a normal life, that is if they were warned in time.
Interestingly, I just put out a press release yesterday that has a study on MS showing that in women it increases 50% per decade as we suspected. Here is that release and you will see some of those case histories. There are more on the web site given above. http://www.wnho.net/new_report_at_neurology_conference.htm
The biggest problem has been the professional organizations like the MS Society who has refused to let MS victims know aspartame can mimic and precipitate MS. These professional organizations are funded by industry and the manufacturers to defend them and put out propaganda on aspartame. Here is the classic propaganda rebutted and answered with facts and medical references: http://www.dorway.com/offasprt.html
To give you an example, they had an MS walk here in Atlanta where I live. They were actually giving out "Diet Coke" with aspartame. We were giving out Dr. Roberts paper, "MS or Aspartame Disease" and a letter Dr. Russell Blaylock, author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, http://www.russellblaylockmd.com wrote on the subject. We also gave out the FDA list of 92 symptoms from 4 types of seizures to come and death. The MS Society objected to the information being given out so the walkers would know why MS is so epidemic. Aspartame is consumed by 70% of the population and 40% of children. This may be lower today with people using Splenda which itself is a chlorocarbon poison. http://www.wnho.net/splenda_chlorocarbon.htm
When the MS Society objected and asked us to leave I stood up on a chair and said: "The MS people do not want you to have this information that tells you about a product that can trigger MS. How many of you want the information?" Everyone in the crowd took it, and the MS people were foiled. Many calls came in after that walk about people who had walked out of wheelchairs and whose symptoms had disappeared. Imagine how many people would be saved if the MS Society would alert the public and put life before money.
The second year calls still came in about every hour and they come in today, the last being about an hour ago. It is now 12 years since I lectured and there is an update on the No Markle page. This post continues to save lives throughout the world. In fact, because there were so many calls from all over the world I was able to set up operations in other countries. Today Mission Possible International has operations in 37 countries. We are a global volunteer force, non-profit, warning everyone on planet earth off this toxin. States http://www.proliberty.com/observer/20070408.htm and countries continue to try and ban this deadly poison from the planet: http://www.thenhf.com/articles_408.htm
Who is Nancy Markle? I don't know but I know she exists. She was interviewed on a Philadelphia radio station by Rollye James, her name is now Rollye Cornell. She was also seen in Florida where I believe she lives giving out the paper. People wrote songs to Nancy Markle, like using the music from "Won't you Come Home Bill Bailey", (way before your time ) that went something like this, "Won't you come home Nan Markle, won't you come, I cried the whole night long." Some web sites simply said, "Nancy Markle, please call home."
I was never upset over the fact she plagiarized my paper, because had she not done it, hundreds of thousands of people might be dead today from the symptoms and diseases listed in Dr. Roberts medical text. In fact, we are taking aspartame brain tumor cases in New York and New Jersey for litigation. We will get it off the market. I once wrote if I ever met Nancy Markle I would hand her two dozen yellow roses because the end justified the means of spreading the word and saving lives.
The professional organizations like the American Dietetic Assn, wrote articles in papers all over the country trying to deny the facts and pushing more propaganda. I answered every single one of them that I saw or was sent to me. You will see one of them on the No Markle web page as an example. We have always called the dietitians Monsanto's media flacks. Monsanto sold the NutraSweet Co but Merisant still owns part of it, and they are a group of Monsanto managers. I told Monsanto many times to remember the words of Mohammed Ali, "You can run but you can't hide". To which I add the immortal admonition of another great athlete, baseball's Satchel Paige: "Never look back, something might be gaining on you!" It's us!
The NutraTanic has hit an iceberg. Europe's largest producer Holland Sweetener has jumped overboard because they are losing money. They had a joint venture with DSM who has just recently also ceased to produce aspartame as has Tosoh. Ajinomoto is the largest aspartame producer. Here is my open letter to them which they refuse to answer even to those in Japan who have asked: http://www.wnho.net/ajinomotoletter.htm They can't lie themselves out of public government records!
Aspartame Disease is a global plague and people are sick and dying the world over from it. To save the children in school the world experts have written new articles on how aspartame destroys their brains, as well as it causing birth defects and mental retardation. Please give this report to your teacher and your principal: http://www.wnho.net/report_on_aspartame_and_children.htm As a project for your class your teacher might consider having your class email it to Boards of Education, schools, pediatricians and OB-GYN physicians all over the state. When one physician knows he can save the lives of thousands of patients.
Your library should contain the books by the experts mentioned above. On http://www.sunsentpress.com Dr. Roberts has many other tapes and books on aspartame. Dr. Blaylock has a new lecture, The Truth About Aspartame, and a DVD on Nutrition and Behavior. http://www.atavistik.com They will help your school immensely.
Also, the school should show a movie in your auditorium, the aspartame documentary, "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World". It was produced by Cori Brackett and J.T. Waldren, co-owners of Sound and Fury Productions. You can get a copy from http://www.amazon.com or Barnes & Noble. Cori was a heavy diet pop consumer. She ended up diagnosed with MS with a huge lesion, in a wheelchair and could hardly talk. She found information on aspartame after she decided to take responsibility for her own health, and abstained. At the end of her journey to get well from this disease she walked out of her wheelchair, and 8 months later her huge lesion all but disappeared. Through her efforts and this aspartame documentary people continue to be saved from this horrible toxin. A sequel which films a representative of Feingold, the ADD people, admits that ADD and ADHD were not even terms used prior to the early l980's when aspartame was approved.
I'll send you a separate email about Matthew Hobson, a 16 year old at the time, who used diet soda when a school in Yorkshire removed all soda but that which is aspartame laced. See what happened to him so you can help your school make sure it doesn't happen to their students.
Today even athletes are dropping dead from aspartame, and that includes young athletes in school. Here is Dr. Blaylock's Athlete Alert: http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_msg_scd.htm Dr. Blaylock has written a detox program called "What To Do If You Have Used Aspartame": http://www.wnho.net/wtdaspartame.htm
2005 a new study in Italy proved aspartame to be a multipotential carcinogen: http://www.wnho.net/new_aspartame_studies.htm This paper also includes another study that came out about the same by Sharon Fowler of the University of Texas linking diet drinks with obesity. Another study by Dr. M. Soffritti of Ramazzini in Italy is in the process of being released showing aspartame to cause cancer even at low doses. http://www.laleva.org/eng/2007/04/aspartame_fda_spins_news_on_second_cancer_study.html
The FDA who originally tried to have the manufacturer indicted for fraud today lies about the records: http://www.wnho.net/open_letter_to_laura_tarantino_fda.htm
The records show aspartame is illegally on the market because as FDA's own toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress, it violates the Delaney Amendment which forbids putting anything in food that shows cancer in animals. It violates adulteration statutes as admitted by the National Soft Drink Assn (now American Beverage) and is documented in the congressional record of May, l985. As such it violates Interstate Commerce statutes which say you cannot ship an adulterated product for sale. An additive by law must be inert, and aspartame is really a drug that interacts with all drugs and vaccines: http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_interacts.htm
How serious is it? In the aspartame documentary you'll see Diane Fleming, a Sunday School teacher who is serving 20 and 30 years concurrently for poisoning her husband with methanol. Aspartame liberates free methyl alcohol. The reason its addictive is that methanol is classified as a narcotic, causes chronic methanol poisoning. This affects the dopamine system of the brain and causes addiction. It's as addictive as cocaine - don't even touch it. Essence Recovery Center in Asheville, N.C. takes aspartame victims who have trouble fighting the addiction. Diane Fleming took 3 lie detector tests and helped the police. Aspartame experts who looked at the autopsy wrote affidavits that her husband, Charles, a body builder and athlete who played basketball about four times a week, died from aspartame. She has been in prison for four years. Be sure to give a copy of this post to the athletic department in your school!
At one time aspartame was listed with the pentagon in an inventory of prospective biochemical warfare weapons submitted to Congress. Here is its history from the prestigious Ecologist: http://www.mpwhi.com/ecologist_september_2005.doc
It's been a long and hard fight against industry who use it, the manufacturers, the professional organizations who are funded by them, the front groups and the FDA who has been lying to the public since approval, but the saving of lives has been worth it. As Dr. Roberts once said, "You know a pioneer by the arrows in his back". You cannot stop until it's off the market. Join the fight to get it out of your school. My favorite quote: "Teamwork is the fuel that allows common people to produce uncommon results".
I hope I've answered all your questions. My doctorate is honorary for my work all these years, it's a doctorate in humanities. Aspartame damages DNA, which can destroy humanity, which we are trying to save.
As to the cancer cure, you probably read: "Profile of a Super Volunteer Activist" that Dr. Roberts published in Townsend Letter for Doctors: http://www.dorway.com/profile.html The FDA has been actively trying to outlaw the herbs. In fact, someone from the Forestry who sprayed a man's property to get rid of the herbs said: "The FDA made us do it." The FDA today is simply Big Pharma's Washington Branch Office and do not want cancer cured. They have shamed the United States and the world and approved poisons like aspartame and Vioxx which killed 60,000, but are very much against curing herbs. A book is being written by my husband who will leave the formula for posterity.
At the time of the Nancy Markle post the FDA got on TV and said aspartame was safe even though they actually revoked the petition for approval and attempted indictment of the company. The petition is on web and you can read the commentary. People refer to the "intact FDA" prior to aspartame approval because they tried to prevent it and do what was right. After approval they gave their loyalty to the manufacturer and betrayed the public trust. I wrote a petition for ban of aspartame 5 years ago. The law says it "must be" answered in 180 days. The FDA serves above the law, and has refused, sending a letter saying they had more important things to do.
There is a safe sweetener, Just Like Sugar, which is just chicory and orange peel. You'll find information on it on http://www.mpwhi.com You can get it in any Whole Foods or Wild Oats or such. Make sure you warn people not to use Wrigley's gum who after having suit filed against them for using aspartame, put it in almost all their products. This is very serious because it works like nitroglycerin under the tongue, goes through saliva, straight to the brain. Dr. Roberts paper on aspartame gum and absorption is on web.
I hope I've answered all your questions. You can always write back if you have more. And you can subscribe to the Aspartame Information List for on-going information. All you have to do is forward this post or any of the reports in it to save a life. Help get your friends off aspartame. It also reduces IQ and destroys memory.
All my best,

Hi My name is Kristian and I'm sitting beside my partner Rebecca, we are doing a project on Aspartame and you have came up on our work sheet several times. It's acually all about you! We have been doing a lot of research about you. We were given a worksheet and here are some of the questions, 'Who is Nancy Markle and who sponsored or attended the "world enivornmental conference on aspartame?", 'List several key points of infornmation you discoverd about Nancy Markle'. My partner and I are stuck on a question. We are suppose to get our infornmation on google by typing in "Nancy Markle" or by going to: http://www.rense.com/health/sweetners.htm so you are probably wondering what the question is that we are stuck on well it says: Infornmation on the 1995 "World Enviornmental Confrence on Aspartame" is also sketchy, Search for information where this 1995 conference took place. Also, in the beginning of the speech, Nancy Markle says that "In the keynote adress by the EPA..." Who delivered the EPA'S [Enviornmental Protection Agency] Keynote adress at this confernce? 'WHAT DID YOU DISCOVER?' I do not know when you are going to get this e-mail or even if you do but if/once you do please e-mail me back as soon as you can. My e-mail is [not listed here for reasons of privacy] and if you don't mind, we have a question for you. The question is, Why did you change you name? And if you do have a cure for breast cancer please tell all of the hospitals so they can cure it as soon as possible! We are so greatfull for your cure! and if you could please e-mail me back that would be great!
