Aspartame's time to be banned is long overdue. It should never have been approved in the first place. Even the FDA revoked the petition for approval. In the aspartame documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, Attorney James Turner explains how Don Rumsfeld called in his markers to get it approved. See the clip:

Rumsfeld was on Reagan's transition team and the day after he took office he appointed Arthur Hull Hayes as FDA Commissioner to get it approved. So concerned it would take 30 days to get Hayes there President Reagan actually wrote an executive order making the current FDA Commissioner powerless to do anything about aspartame until Hayes arrived. What political clout. Somebody needs to ask Rumsfeld to go into more detail about those markers he held. After Hayes arrived at FDA a scientific Board of Inquiry was convened and the petition for approval of this deadly neurotoxin was revoked because it triggered brain tumors, and never proven safe. Hayes over-ruled the Board and went to work for the PR Agency of the manufacturer and has refused to talk to the press ever since.

H. J. Roberts, M.D., who testified before Congress warned at his first press conference if something wasn't done then we would have a global plague on our hands in five or ten years. And indeed it was Dr. Roberts who declared Aspartame Disease to be a global plague and published a 1038 page medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic,

Having poisoned the world more and more consumers call the plague - Rumsfeld Disease. Obviously had he not called in those bloody markers the revoked petition for approval would have prevented the marketing of this chemical poison for human consumption and the disability and death it causes. Cori Brackett and J. T. Walden, co-owners of Sound and Fury Productions who produced Sweet Misery will soon have a new documentary to release titled Sweet Remedy. A remedy is needed to save aspartame victims. Cori Brackett is an aspartame victim who was diagnosed with MS. Off aspartame she walked out of her wheelchair to make this film. Eight months off aspartame her large lesion all but disappeared.

Obviously the first step is a ban and efforts continue around the world. Stephen Fox has petitioned the Environmental Improvement Board and Board of Pharmacy to ban it from New Mexico. Robin Goodwin has asked for a ban in the Falkland Islands and Lane Shore has asked it be removed from schools in Illinois. Attorneys are taking aspartame brain tumor cases in New York, New Jersey, Madison County Illinois and Mississippi. See form on

Aspartame is marketed as NutraSweet, Equal, E951, Canderel, Benevia, etc. For those who have used the toxin neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., wrote "What To Do If You Have Used Aspartame":

For the whole story and time line read the Ecologist's cover story, "The Shocking Story of the World's Best Selling Sweetener:

Read on for the breaking news. I leave the aspartame manufacturers who with full knowledge knew they were marketing a neurotoxic drug, the words of Mohammed Ali: "You can run but you can't hide!" And especially today we add the immortal admonition of another great athlete, baseball's Satchel Paige: "Never look back, something might be gaining on you!" It's the victims you poisoned.
