Parliament, Amendment 4, Aspartame: Allow the deliverance of your country from the epidemic devastating America. Stevia should be reapproved as the salvation for diabetics, and others.

I pray for the deliverance from the epidemic devastating America, visiting agony, disability and early death on the population. Aspartame/Canderel/E951/NutraSweet, etc. must be eliminated from your nation's tabletops.

An entire shelf of medical texts and a multitude of scientific reports establish absolutely the toxicity of this poison. The US Food and Drug Administration published a list of 92 symptoms including death from 10,000 consumer complaints and slammed the complaint window and discontinued distribution of the report without Freedom of Information or a Congressman's intervention. There were so many complaints when this was put on the market that during congressional hearings it was admitted that the FDA was referring them to the AIDS Hotline. In reality it would take a warehouse to hold all these complaints that never stop pouring in. Twelve thousand came in one day and crashed my computer, one of three crashes because of thousands of complaints at one time.

The reactions to aspartame are not allergic said Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., but toxic like arsenic and cyanide. Imagine putting just a drop of arsenic each morning in your tea; the eventual consequences would be inescapable. Renowned H. J. Roberts, M.D. authored a 1038 page medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic. Roberts was named The Best Doctor in the United States by a national medical publication. He has been knighted by the Order of St. George for his professional and humanitarian efforts. Wrote one molecular biologist and toxicologist who suffered aspartame disease, in a letter to Dr. Roberts: "You have done so far what no hero in the history of modern toxicology can parallel." Listen to these world famous physicians!

Dr. James Bowen wrote the FDA: "The only responsible action would be to immediately take aspartame off the market, fully disclose its toxicities, offer full compensation to the injured public and criminally prosecute anyone who participated in the placement of aspartame on the market. That includes those who work so diligently to keep it there as well."

The Idaho Observer in publishing the Artificially Sweetened Times in August declared Aspartame Disease should be called Rumsfeld's Disease for Donald Rumsfeld who was CEO of G. D. Searle at the time of approval, and responsible for this plague delivered on consumers in over 100 countries of the world. As documented in the congressional record and United Press International's eight month investigation of aspartame, Rumsfeld said he would "call in his markers and get aspartame approved". He was on President Reagan's transition team and the day after he took office appointed Arthur Hull Hayes FDA commissioner to do the deadly dead. For 16 years FDA had rejected aspartame, and for the first time in history, asked the Justice Department to criminally prosecute Searle for "apparent violations of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, 21 U.S.C. 331 (e), and the False Reports to the Government Act 18 U.S.C. 1001, for "their willful and knowing failure to make reports to the FDA required by the Act, 21 U.SC. 355 (i) and for concealing material facts and making false statements in reports of animal studies conducted to establish the safety of aspartame. With no defense, Searle's attorneys just hired the prosecutors and the case expired with the statute of limitations. As we say here: The Godfather hired the District Attorney. Even when the finest scientists the FDA had to offer convened a Public Board of Inquiry and said to revoke the petition for approval because aspartame was never proven safe and triggered brain tumors, Hayes over-ruled the this PBOI,

With Searle's history known on the matter it would have been hard to get aspartame approved in any other country, so again Searle used influence. They made a business deal with Paul Turner in your regulatory agency and he approved it for them without anyone knowing. You may remember the blowout in Parliament many years ago. The story was in the Guardian. But the toxin was never rescinded. And now it could easily be rubberstamped around the world.

Cash conquers conviction save for principled men. In Hayes' steps, eleven FDA officials switched sides to work in the aspartame industry. The manufacturer of aspartame has always bought the American Diabetes Assn, the American Dietetics Assn, the AMA and other watchdogs to sell the mythology that aspartame is harmless, and I know you're familiar with American corporate interests with bulging pockets who despicably seek influence with Members of Parliament.

Our National Soft Drink Association protested against the approval of aspartame for soft drinks which extensive objections were included in the 5/7/85 Congressional Record. They even quoted the law that said its illegal. Then they turned around and did it anyway, the cash came in, and now they fight to convince us its safe as rain. Interesting how they clam up when you mention this because they have no defense.

As aspartame is metabolized it releases: aspartic acid, methyl alcohol, phenylalanine, diketopiperazine (brain tumor agent), formaldehyde, formic acid, carbon monoxide and other poisons. The two amino acids are well known to be neurotoxic as isolates. In molecular chemistry it's one molecule of aspartic acid to one molecule of methanol to one molecule of phenylalanine. So when the manufacturer tries to tell you there is just a little bit of methanol, (a severe metabolic poison), in aspartame you might as well be conversing with Mother Goose. And the story about there being more methanol in fruits and vegetables than in aspartame is equally a fairy tale. In fruits and vegetables there is also ethanol which is the antidote for methanol toxicity and takes it safely out of your body. (Aspartame: Methanol and the Public Health, Dr. Woodrow Monte). No ethanol in aspartame. Aspartame triggers sudden cardiac death because of the damage to the cardiac conduction system. Without question aspartame contributes to the 460,000 Americans who die annually from SCD, according to our Center for Disease Control.

Aspartame toxicity is intensified by its action as a chemical hypersensitization agent, inducing multiple chemical sensitivity syndrome. The condition produces weird unexpected reactions to common environmental chemicals: paint, petrol, cleaners, medicines and vaccines. It interacts with other unsafe sweeteners like Sucralose/Splenda which has a chlorinated base like DDT and can cause autoimmune disease, and asculfame potassium which caused cancer and leukemia in original studies, for starters. Aspartame victims in four support groups on line even complain about reacting to genetically engineered foods, another plague visited on mankind by Monsanto who bought Searle in l985. They have now sold it. For heart attacks a nitroglycerine tablet is placed under the tongue for immediate relief. Aspartame in chewing gum enjoys this same direct-to-the-brain transport, so the US Air Force magazine Flying Safety stated: "Some people have suffered aspartame related disorders with doses as small as that carried in a single stick of chewing gum. This could mean a pilot who drinks diet sodas is more susceptible to flicker vertigo, or to flicker-induced epileptic activity. It also means that all pilots are potential victims of sudden memory loss, dizziness during instrument flight and gradual loss of vision."

In Brussels last year I spoke with the EU and brought damning government records and other material needed for a review. I presented professional critiques which display the duplicity and inadmissibility of Monsanto studies which bless aspartame, as do all industry funded studies. Dr. Ralph Walton wrote a paper on scientific peer reviewed studies having to do with funding showing 92% of independent studies show the problems aspartame triggers. Discussed on 60 Minutes in l996. This was also given the EU. They were shown the medical text on the global plague of Aspartame Disease. This soft bound text by Dr. Roberts weighs over 4 lbs loaded with information on diseases and symptoms triggered by aspartame, drug interactions, and an expose on the corruption involved in the approval process. There is so much known about how deadly aspartame is that an entire set of encyclopedias on the issue could be written. Millions of European babies are being deformed or murdered in the womb, inflicted with autism, ADD, tumors, obesity and mental depreciation for the sake of the manufacturer's profits. Aspartame triggers all kinds of neurodegenerative diseases and interacting with so many drugs used to treat them. EU is definitely aligned with industry as they have the most damning reports on this toxin yet they deleted this evidence in their report, and used the flawed material they were alerted to by documentation. The entire rebuttal to their report can be read at

Keep in mind that in the aspartame issue everything is a matter of public record. This is the reason the manufacturer intimidates the press there, and has always done anything possible to keep a case out of court. Otherwise, they are stuck with the right of recovery. They simply refuse to answer the allegations just like people in this country taking The Fifth in court to avoid self-incrimination. Here's an example. Ajinomoto is one of the now manufacturers of aspartame, and they lie to such an extent that I wrote a letter demanding answers and giving quotes from the government records. You will find this letter at If anyone actually believes the myth that aspartame is safe, demand this aspartame manufacturer answer this letter. They will not be able to do it and have refused.

I have lectured in England twice and once in Scotland. The last time the manufacturer knew I was coming. I was locked up by immigration for 3 1/2 hours with such questions as if we let you in England how many people will find out about the dangers of aspartame. They wanted to know how many people would be at each lecture. If aspartame is safe like the manufactures would have you believe why is such necessary to a visitor to England? Why is it necessary to send a mole to record a lecture like was done in Shrewsbury Shropshire by Cowan McKenna litigation department in London? I provided the young woman with a complete set of records since we make them public the world over.

If you would like a copy of the entire Board of Inquiry report saying aspartame is not safe, the l985 congressional hearing (there were 3) and the famed Dr. John Olney's report to the PBOI you can get it from Mission Possible Maine on CD for about $5.00 to help the effort, It's all in the records. Dr. John Olney is probably one of the most famous neuroscientists in the world today. He founded the field of neuroscience called excitotoxicity and did the studies on aspartic acid, 40% of aspartame in l970. He found it caused lesions in the brains of mice. He was concerned about what this would do to the brains of our kids. Unfortunately the prophecy has been fulfilled with epidemics of autism, ADD, ADHD, Tourettes, mental retardation and such. The Board of Inquiry of the FDA agreed with Dr. Olney but Arthur Hull Hayes over-ruled the report to revoke the petition for approval.

On the Stevia issue, this is a safe herb used for thousands of years in Brazil, and especially to aid diabetics. It helps in the metabolism of sugar. Dr. H. J. Roberts is a diabetic specialist and says that aspartame can actually precipitate diabetes, keeps blood sugar out of control, aggravates and stimulates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, can cause diabetics to go into convulsions and even interacts with insulin. Larry Hagman (J.R. in Dallas) said it saved his life when he became a diabetic.

The manufacturer of aspartame does not want any competition with a safe supplement. In l998 the FDA actually tried to get the Stevita Company to burn their cook books so nobody would know the benefits of Stevia. It can be heated unlike aspartame which decomposes at 86 degrees according to the National Soft Drink Assn. The troops drinking diet pop cooking in the Arabian sun of about 120 degrees were drinking formaldehyde cocktails. Dr. James Bowen who never served in the Persian Gulf but drank Diet Koolaide while practicing in the desert has Lou Gehrigs disease. Aspartame can trigger this and mimics MS as it destroys the central nervous system. Note that a study of Desert Storm Illness showed they were suffering from Lou Gehrigs! Here are the URL's on Stevia:

FDA burning cookbooks:

I asked the EU why Stevia was outlawed in Europe. I was told because there were no studies on safety. I explained there were probably around 500 and if they would give me an address I would send them. You could hear a pin drop in the silence as they took The Fifth. It was obvious they did not want on record the studies that showed its safety, confirming alignment with industry instead of consumer loyalty or interest in safe food and drugs. The Stevita Company in Dallas, Texas, (Oscar Rodes) has just sent me three more new studies on Stevia showing safety, one is on diabetics, and one is on diabetic rats. (

This is a personal appeal to Parliament to do the right thing, free the people of these plagues visited on mankind by greedy pharmaceutical and chemical companies. Stop the murder of innocent babies in the wombs of their mothers. I ask this in the name of the Sovereign of the Universe, Almighty Jehovah God.
