Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg
City Hall
New York, New York 10007

Dear Mayor Bloomberg:

I know that you are very interested in the obesity epidemic. Even though too much sugar is not good for you and can cause weight gain, it's the diet drinks that are causing the obesity epidemic. The aspartame makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight. The formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol in aspartame embalms living tissue and damages DNA. This was found on the Trocho Study by Dr. Alemany in Barcelona. Most toxicity is in the liver so its hard to even lose weight but there is substantial toxicity in the adipose tissue or fat cells. So when you see people with large hips and thighs and they are drinking diet soda or aspartame products you know why. I spoke to Dr. Alemany in Barcelona and he told me aspartame will kill 200 million people! How many will be children?

It seems Obama now wants diet drinks used in schools instead of regular drinks. There will be more than just obesity. Look at the brochure of the medical text - Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, by world expert H. J. Roberts, M.D. The text is over 1000 pages of symptoms and diseases triggered by aspartame. With the depletion of serotonin you have triggered psychiatric and behavioral problems, everything from bipolar, suicidal tendencies, schizophrenia to panic attacks, paranoia and anxiety. Depleting serotonin makes you hostile. Dr. Roberts says with children killing children you have to consider aspartame. Today our children are medicated instead of educated. To make matters worse aspartame damages the mitochondria or powerhouse of the cell and interacts with drugs and vaccines. It interacts with "all" antidepressants according to Dr. Roberts. There is a chapter in his medical text on drug interaction.

In the new book, "While Science Sleeps" by Dr. Woodrow Monte, he tells how the FDA made a deal with G. D. Searle never to allow the public to see the aspartame birth defect studies which showed neural tube problems and is the reason for the epidemic of autism. Here is the last chapter of Dr. Monte's book explaining: The worst case I've seen is a woman who used diet drinks through 3 pregnancies and has 3 autistic children. One woman has an autistic child and one with ADD and I thought she used aspartame during pregnancy. She said she stopped before she got pregnant but her Emory doctor told her it had built up in her system, the reason her children have the problems. So consider teenagers using diet drinks and ruining their chances of having normal children.

What about the athletes in school. Aspartame causes an irregular heart rhythm and interacts with all cardiac medication. It damages the cardiac conduction system and causes sudden cardiac death. Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., author of "Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills" wrote the Athlete Alert enclosed explaining why athletes are dropping dead. Many youngsters in schools who were athletes perished. This is serious, Mayor Bloomberg, and it must be prevented.

I'm also enclosing Psychiatrist, Dr. Ralph Walton's report as well. Remember the woman who drowned her 5 children. She was drinking Diet Coke. It evidently had already caused psychiatric problems because she was using a very strong drug, Haldol. I asked Dr. Walton about it and he said "it was a double whammy". All the experts have told me at one time or another that the mental hospitals are full of patients that are nothing but aspartame victims, and in those hospitals they give them more drugs and diet pop. How devastating! Five children were murdered because of aspartame. What do you think is going to happen in schools. Before aspartame the worst thing that happened in schools was someone put gum on the floor and got sent to the principal's office. Today children are killing children and here is what they are doing to some of the kids with behavioral problems.

It's shocking and outrageous. Some years ago Dr. Baret called me from the Dominican Republic. He had decided to change the diet of 360 children from milk to aspartame juice. He was shocked when the majority became hyperactive, abnormal restlessness, lack of concentration, irritability and depression. I said, "Doctor, get them off the aspartame immediately." He called back a week later and said after four or five days they all returned to normal. The whole story is in Dr. Roberts medical text. This, Mayor, is what you're going to have in school with diet drinks.

On top of this aspartame causes cancer and breaks down to a brain tumor agent. Enclosed is a copy of Health Freedom News, "No Safe Dose of Aspartame". Read what the senior FDA Scientist told Congress. Aspartame violated the Delaney Amendment because it caused cancer in original studies and violated the Delaney Amendment. As Dr. Adrian Gross said, "And if the FDA violates its own laws who is left to protect the public?" You're probably wondering how it got approved so I'm enclosing the aspartame documentary, "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World". Listen to DC Attorney James Turner explain. The FDA revoked the petition for approval because aspartame couldn't be proven safe and caused brain tumors. Don Rumsfeld stepped in and said he would call in his markers. He was on President Reagan's transition team. The day after President Reagan took office he appointed Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes as FDA Commissioner to over-rule the Board of Inquiry which he did. Reagan knew it would take 30 days to get him to the FDA so he wrote an executive order making the FDA powerless to do anything about aspartame until Hayes got there. Someone from the Transition team called FDA Commissioner Jere Goyan at 3:00 AM and fired him. I spoke with his wife who was with him when the call came in and she sent a letter for our web site and you can read it on Click on aspartame news.

The FDA did try to indict the manufacturer for fraud but both US Prosecutors hired on with the defense team and the statute of limitations expired. Today the FDA will tell you that aspartame is the most thoroughly tested substance in history. Tested by comedians according to the late Dr. Adrian Gross. In a letter to Senator Howard Metzenbaum he said: "The views of the FDA's Center for Food Safety read like a script written for Abbott & Costello in the sense of their having perceptions inside-out and upside-down ... 329 fetuses were examined in 2 days by a single person (a clear impossibility)." He also said "We have uncovered serious deficiencies in Searle's operation and practices which undermined the basis for reliance on Searle's integrity.... Searle has not submitted all the facts or experiments to FDA, retaining unto itself the unpermitted option of filtering, interpreting and not submitting information ... an attitude of disregard for FDA's mission of protection of the public health ... conduct which compromises the scientific integrity of the studies."

In the movie you will hear James Turner tell you how Dr. John Olney got so fed up with the way Searle was doing studies he made them do them in his lab so he could oversee them. Sure enough aspartame destroyed the brain so Dr. Olney thought aspartame would not be approved. However, Searle never told the FDA. I always remember Dr. Gross' words, "FDA may have gone through the motions but such a "process" or dance represented no more than a farce and a mockery." At the expense of our safety a system now exists where FDA works for industry, not the American people. When aspartame was approved it let slip the hounds of disease and devastation upon an innocent unwarned American population, and now over 100 countries of the world.

There is a solution. There are safe drinks. In fact, I spoke to someone some years ago about the problem. So many of the sweeteners are dangerous. Splenda is chlorinated sugar if you like drinking bleach, and a study by Dr. Morando Soffritti, Ramazzini Institute found it causes cancer. Acesulfame potassium caused cancer and leukemia in original studies. Most people want to know if you can't use aspartame what should they use. Mike Sylver told me he would fix the problem and made "Just Like Sugar". It's made of chicory, orange peel, vitamin c from organic oranges and calcium. Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. insisted on it being analyzed and when it was he wrote in the Blaylock Wellness Report, "Finally a safe sweetener"! I have no financial association with the company. It was just made because of me. Then I told him about the problems in schools so now they have a program for schools with "Fiber-Up" which is organic juices in alkaline water and very healthful for children. So you don't have to have soda pop in schools at all, but diet drinks with aspartame are an abomination and can cause not only an obesity and diabetic epidemic but behavioral and learning problems.

A Sunday school teacher, a woman by the name of Diane Fleming who also worked to help the homeless, has been in a hardened Virginia prison for ten years. Her athletic husband used diet pop and died of methanol poisoning. They thought she poisoned him even though she took three lie detector tests and passed and the detective told me she wasn't guilty. He said if he hadn't been promoted he would have stopped the indictment. Aspartame experts examined the autopsy and wrote affidavits that he died from aspartame. Then a toxicologist examined the issue and found that the actual cause of death was from the three times the amount of creatine - a so-called creatine blast. Aspartame interacts with creatine. Yet she remains in prison. Another case like it happened in New York. The cases never stop. Six pilots who were heavy users of aspartame died, and when you fly your life is in the hands of the pilot. One of them dropped dead drinking a Diet Coke. The other pilot landed the plane to remove the body.

Mayor Bloomberg, you now have the facts and if you can stop this in New York you may be able to stop it in the rest of the country and save the children. I've tried every way I know how to get aspartame banned. A citizens petition was filed 10 years ago that is suppose to be answered in 180 days. 12 toxicologists filed as did Dr. Ken Stoller and others. In 2007 I filed an imminent health hazard amendment which must be answered in a week or ten days. All I've ever gotten from the FDA are letters stating they have more important things to do. Finally someone called me from the FDA and when I said, "I lecture all over the world and people are sick and dying everywhere" I was told, "So what, we need to depopulate". So the FDA's decision is to let the people die and do nothing, and maintain their loyalty to the aspartame industry. I implore you Mayor, please do what you can to save the children.

All my best,
