Subject: ASPARTAME STUDY 2008 All independent studies continue to show the toxicity of aspartame. How many do you need to ban?

This article below telling pregnant women they can use aspartame is an abomination and should be retracted immediately. This article is a recipe for death. All one has to do is google aspartame and birth defects to know this. Besides aspartame has been on the market for a quarter of a century so it is well known that it triggers birth defects. Dr. Louis Elsas, pediatric professor genetics, formerly Emory University, testified before Congress aspartame is a teratogen and a neurotoxin.

The American Dietetics Assn is funded by the aspartame manufacturers and has been known as Monsanto's media flacks. They use them to defend their products and Monsanto owned NutraSweet until they sold to other companies (Merisant, a group of Monsanto managers, Ajinomoto, etc.). Calorie Control Council is a front group that also defends aspartame: It's only the flacks who defend the aspartame manufacturers who push this addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug on pregnant women. There are medical texts on aspartame and birth defects such as Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, by H. J. Roberts, M.D., and Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., There is even a movie on how aspartame poisoned the world, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World,

Thousands will read this woman's article and can give birth to children with autism, Tourettes and other horrors if they survive at all. Aspartame is also an abortifacient and millions of babies are murdered in their mother's womb from aspartame. Neotame is just another aspartame product.

Here is an article I wrote about aspartame and birth defects for a magazine that gives the true facts below. Please advise you have retracted this article by B. Quinn or be responsible for the deaths or birth defects of thousands of babies.

Aspartame Toxicity Center:


Aspartame, AKA NutraSweet, Equal, E951 and under numerous other aliases is an addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogen masquerading as an additive. The chemical liberates methyl alcohol, (methanol} the deadliest of the alcohols, commonly known as wood alcohol. It's so toxic a single ounce can kill or blind an adult, and it's a cumulative poison that alters the dopamine system of the brain creating addiction. The methanol, CH4O, loses two hydrogens to become CH2O, formaldehyde, which is next metabolized to create CH2O2, formic acid: fire-ant venom. But that's just the beginning.

Half of aspartame is phenylalanine, which floods the brain, a neurotoxin, lowering the seizure threshold. It depletes serotonin triggering psychiatric and behavioral problems and interacts with all drugs and vaccines. Today our children are medicated instead of educated.

Dr. Louis Elsas, an eminent Pediatric Professor, Genetics, told Congress on 11/3/87 he had spent 25 years in the biomedical sciences "trying to prevent mental retardation and birth defects caused by excess phenylalanine. And herein lies my basic concern, that aspartame is in fact a well known neurotoxin and teratogen which, in some as yet undefined dose, will both reversibly in the adult and irreversibly in the developing child or fetal brain, produce adverse effects."

The third component is aspartic acid, a powerful neurotransmitter that excites the brain's neurons into hyperactivity until they exhaust and die. So there you have it, a bouquet of brain and neurological destroyers packed in little blue envelopes, sitting on every restaurant table in the western world, harvesting enough money to buy whatever bureaucratic blessings are necessary to kill us.

Aspartame produces the deadly brain tumor agent diketopiperazine. Such malignancies now sprout like mushrooms across America. In original studies it also triggered uterine, ovarian, pancreatic, thyroid and testicular tumors. The 3-year Italian Ramazzini Study on 1,800 rats confirmed original FDA findings that this chemical is "a multipotential carcinogen" causing leukemia, lymphoma, cancer of the kidney and peripheral nerves. Only rats fed aspartame developed malignant brain tumors. It was peer reviewed by 7 world experts. This excellent research was exceptional in that it did not kill the rats at the customary 24 months, but allowed them to die naturally. Cancer is a disease common to the final third of life.

Said Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock M.D., author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, "The new study released in the European Journal of Oncology by Morando Soffritti and co-workers 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.

"This study confirmed the previous study by Dr. Trocho and co-workers, which also found the formaldehyde from aspartame to be damaging to cellular DNA and that this damage was accumulative.The type of damage was a duplicate of that associated with cancers. Along with this most recent study, this means that drinking a single diet cola sweetened with aspartame every day could increase one's risk of developing a lymphoma or leukemia."

An army of renowned MDs and researchers have verified the cry of alarm, one deliberately smothered by the heartless monsters making and selling the poison.

Aspartame destroys families. Its an endocrine disrupting agent, stimulates prolactin, changes the menses and causes infertility. Women who desperately want children throng fertility clinics sipping Diet Coke, the reason they're there. Dr. Madelon Price, Biochemist, explains this infertility: "I was concerned about aspartic acid, one of the major breakdown products. Aspartic acid, like glutamic acid (mono sodium glutamate, MSG, Accent) readily passes from the blood into the circumventricular organs of the brain. ...sexual dysfunction is associated with aspartame and MSG. If enough arcuate neurons are lost, that dysfunction is irreversible. Rodents that ingest high levels of aspartate or glutamate when young become infertile adults."

So many parents never have the children they long for because aspartame is peddled without even the decency of a warning. But let's say the woman stops using it for a time and does get pregnant. Dr. James Bowen says, "At every point in the fertility process aspartame destroys, beginning with the gleam in Mom and Pop's eyes: it ruins female sexual response and induces male sexual dysfunction. 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."

Psychiatrist Dr. Ralph Walton said, "Aspartame is a multipotential toxin and carcinogen. The dipeptide component of the molecule can alter brain chemistry, significantly changing the ratio of catecholamines to indolamines, with resultant lowering of seizure threshold, production of carbohydrate craving and in vulnerable individuals leading to panic, depressive and cognitive symptoms."

From the aspartame documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, is this clip with Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon discussing aspartame and pregnancy: Available from These articles include information from the ADD folks who banned aspartame a couple of years ago. Many pediatric Rx and over-the-counter drugs contain this toxin as well as pediatric vitamins. Pediatricians need to be alerted so they won't prescribe these drugs.

Be particularly concerned with Wrigley's gum as most of their brands contain aspartame and sometimes blended with other dangerous sweeteners such as Splenda, a chlorocarbon poison, and acesulfame potassium, which caused cancer and leukemia in original studies. According to Dr. H. J. Roberts because it's buccal and goes directly into the mouth, it works like nitroglycerin, goes through saliva straight to the brain.

Dr. Roberts wrote the medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic,, and discusses children's abnormal behavior from this toxin. "Irritability, aggression, hyperactivity ("the need to keep moving"), crying, whining, impulsivity, slurred speech, and learning problems have been associated with or aggravated by the use of aspartame products. Some concerned teacher-correspondents attributed the increased frequency of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and declining school grades to their widespread consumption. These changes have been various referred to as "Jekyll and Hyde behavior" and "the Halloween effect." His CD "Mommy Links" will also help young mothers.

Be sure to monitor what your children eat during the holidays. Keep your little ones far from harms way. For children who cannot use sugar there are safe substitutes like the herbal sweetener, Stevia, which helps in the metabolism of sugar. And the new Just Like Sugar is available in Whole Foods. A recent analysis showed it to be free of MSG and aspartic acid, excitotoxins. It's made of only chicory, orange peel, calcium and Vitamin C. No need for anyone to consume deadly chemical sweeteners.

Recently released is Dr.Blaylock's DVD on "Nutrition and Behavior" - This will help parents and schools understand how damaging some of these additives are. Dr. John Olney wrote a 49 page report to the FDA Board of Inquiry a quarter of a century ago explaining what would happen if aspartame was approved. Unfortunately his prophecy has been fulfilled. Our children must be saved from this toxin.

On nutrition: A diet for pregnancy

The Monterey County Herald

I'm not sure I need to know the details, but my daughter informed me that her friend Angela just gave birth to a healthy baby boy . . . nine months after she and her husband traveled to California for my daughterıs wedding.

The weather must have agreed with them.

Women who adopt a healthful diet and lifestyle before and during pregnancy set the stage for a good birth outcome, according to a new position paper on this topic by the American Dietetic Association. Here are some highlights:

A trip to California may not hurt either. Congratulations, David and Angela, on little Brady.
