President Bush is having an MRI of his knees today at Walter Reed Hospital. This is another symptom of deadly aspartame disease. It is caused by hardening of the synovial fluids which was discovered on studies done in South America by Searle in l983/84 but never published. The notarized affidavit from the translator, N. Vera is on These studies also revealed that some subjects got brain tumors, others had seizures, and aspartame destroys the brain and central nervous system.

Joint pain is 31 on the FDA report of 92 symptoms from 4 types of seizures to coma and death. Dr. H. J. Roberts has declared Aspartame Disease to be a global plague and has published the medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, or 1-800-827-7991. It contains a large chapter on joint pain, fibromyalgia (a diagnostic wastebucket), arthritis and associated type problems triggered by aspartame. He discusses the abnormalities of calcium and phosphate metabolism such as the affinity of aspartame for calcium which is also depleted by the phosphoric acid in the soda. His reports on joint pain are also on the Dorway web site. Read also info from Dr. Richard Sabates who suffered the same problem from the same diet drinks and ended up at the Mayo Clinic who couldn't help him. The public and physicians are clueless because the FDA, the manufacturers and the professional organizations they fund put out propaganda rather than facts. Aspartame is a deadly neurotoxic drug which interacts with most drugs used to treat the problems it causes and is not an additive at all. It is of such poisonous nature that it is a chemical hypersensitization agent and will even react with vaccines and other toxins. It is a trigger of creeping death - the neurodegenerative diseases.

Aspartame scrambles the brain causing memory loss, confusion and inability to concentrate. It is a molecule composed of three components, aspartic acid, an excitotoxin (product that stimulates the neurons of the brain to death causing brain damage of varying degrees), methanol, a severe metabolic poison that converts to formaldehyde and formic acid and causes metabolic acidosis, and phenylalanine, at 50% and an isolate is neurotoxic lowering the seizure threshold of the brain and depleting serotonin which triggers manic depression, mood swings, panic attacks and suicidal tendencies for starters. Aspartame breaks down to a witches brew of toxins including diketopiperazine, a brain tumor agent.

President Bush is already stumbling over his words and showing the signs of advanced aspartame poisoning. One of these signs is blackouts, and you remember the "fainting spell" said to be from a "pretzel". No record of pretzels causing blackouts.

Orthopedic surgeons have reported finding necrosis under the joints of aspartame victims. The reason there are many failed joint surgeries is aspartame is a chemical hypersensitization agent. Dr. James Bowen says this causes violent auto immune reactions to methyl esters. "Usually, the larger the compound and more toxic the other components the more violent the reaction. Previous reaction to that same compound may make the reaction more violent, destructive, rapid and certain. Methyl merthacrylate is the chemical "glue" used to bond and conform the implant into the bony structure it is being attached to. Being previously sensitized by aspartame virtually assures that methyl mertacrylate will yield a violent local autoimmune destruction rather than "glue" the components to the bone, leaving the unfortunate patient with both the destruction from the surgical excision of bone and the radical damage from rejection of the implant and the methyl mertacrylate platform it was to be glued to."

Often just getting off aspartame will eliminate the problem. If not prolotherapy can. The leading physician who does this is Dr. Hauser in Oak Park, Illinois who was trained by the late Dr. Gustav Hemwall who cured Surgeon General C. Everett Koop of back pain. Prolotherapy is often the cure for chronic pain.

The world is suffering from Aspartame Disease thanks to President Bush's friend, Secretary of Defense Don Rumsfeld, who called in his markers to get it approved when the FDA had refused for 16 years to not only allow approval but attempted to have the manufacturer indicted. Both U.S. Prosecutors hired on with the Defense Team and the Statute of Limitations Expired.What power by a pharmaceutical company! Read the story on web and in the Artificially Sweetened Times ( ).

Today people are actually dropping dead from aspartame. A recent report has been sent to the Center for Disease Control from the Idaho Observer covering 192 people who dropped dead in one county alone in 4 months. Think of how many athletes using the product have lost their life. It was never Ephedra. Famed Dr. John Olney reviewed the cases the FDA said died from this and found that none of them did, and that Ephedra is safe. Aspartame causes cardiac arrhythmias and interacts with all cardiac medication. It damages the cardiac conduction system and causes sudden death. There are many articles on this by Doctors H. J. Roberts, Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock and James Bowen. ( Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills by Blaylock, ) One of the horror stories is that of the death of Charles Fleming who used at least 10 diet drinks a day. His autopsy showed the chronic methanol poisoning which incidentally affects the dopamine system of the brain and causes the addiction. The police not knowing about aspartame thought he had been poisoned. His wife, Diane Fleming, a lovely Sunday School teacher and helper of the homeless, is now serving 50 years in a Virginia prison for a crime committed by the manufacturers of this deadly poison. Read the story on the site of the World Natural Health Organization,

And what do they use to sweeten in prisons - aspartame. Also read the article by Dr. Bowen on aspartame and cardiomyopathy.

Another leader of the free world, Tony Blair of England, also user of Diet Coke has already been reported to have suffered the cardiac problems. This represents advanced aspartame poisoning. A letter has been sent to his wife by a homeopath in England. Will he listen before its too late?

Donald Rumsfeld was CEO of Searle when he called in his markers to get it approved. He was on President Reagan's transition team, and Reagan the day after taking office appointed Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes as FDA Commissioner since no Commissioner in 16 years would approve the poison. A board of inquiry of the best scientists the FDA had to offer was set up and it was their decision that the petition for approval of aspartame be revoked. Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes over-ruled that Board of Inquiry and then went to work for the PR Agency of the manufacturer and has refused to talk to the press ever since. The entire Board of Inquiry report, the congressional record and the famed Dr. John Olney's testimony to the Board of Inquiry going into detail about what would happen to the brains of our kids (founded the field of neuroscience called excitotoxicity) can be gotten by CD from Mission Possible Maine, An excellent article on isolated amino acids explaining why aspartame is so dangerous by James Bowen, M.D., and former FDA Investigator Arthur Evangeslista, can be read on (Mission Possible Canada).

P.S. Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. has written a paper on what to do if you have used aspartame. Anyone needing it can email for a copy.
