Subject: Aspartame: Bill Calls for Sugar Substitute Ban - Response

Dear Editor:

Thank you for helping to get the news out on banning aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal/Spoonful, etc.) from the great state of Hawaii.

Yes it is linked to 92 symptoms including death from the FDA themselves. Here is that report on FDA stationery: However, there are many more listed including all kinds of diseases and tumors in the 1000 page medical text by H. J. Roberts, M.D., Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic,

Dr. Kalani Brady, a physician at the John A. Burns School of Medicine educates on diabetes. You have to wonder what is behind his statement of it being safe when aspartame has triggered an epidemic of diabetes. It not only can precipitate diabetes but simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, destroys the optic nerve from the free methyl alcohol, causes diabetics to go into convulsions and even interacts with insulin. It's the methanol, a severe metabolic poison that is causing so many diabetics to lose their limbs. Dr. Brady should get a copy of Dr. Roberts medical text since he is a diabetic specialist and took care of aspartame victims in the trenches of medical practice for decades. There is a large chapter on diabetes and its mechanisms. Here is an excellent letter written to Senator Ortiz y Pino in New Mexico on the subject. Perhaps you can forward it to Dr. Brady along with this Journal of the Diabetic Association of India:

While the FDA today is the Aspartame Industry's Washington Branch Office, they originally fought approval to the point of asking for the indictment of the manufacturer. US Prosecutors Sam Skinner and William Conlon hired on with the defense team and the statute of limitations expired. The FDA actually revoked the petition for approval because they were so concerned about it triggering brain tumors and that it couldn't be proven safe. Here is the Board of Inquiry Report: You will notice in the commentary above it there is a clip from Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, an aspartame documentary, with Attorney James Turner explaining how Don Rumsfeld got this deadly chemical poison on the market when the FDA said "no".

They knew the FDA Commissioner would never over-rule the revoked petition for approval, so a call was made to him at 3:00 A.M. from the Reagan Transition Team asking him to resign. Here is a recent letter from his wife who was with him when that call came in: Rumsfeld was on Reagan's transition team and said he would call in his markers and get it approved. The day after Reagan took office he appointed Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes as FDA Commissioner to do the deadly deed. Knowing it would take 30 days to get Hayes to FDA, President Reagan actually wrote an Executive Order making the FDA powerless to do anything about aspartame. Hayes over-ruled the Board of Inquiry and then went to work for the PR Agency of the manufacturer for $1000.00 a day on a ten year contract. Quite a reward.

There was so much outrage as people began being poisoned there were three congressional hearings but the bill to put a moratorium on aspartame and have the NIH do independent studies on the horrors they were seeing in the population never got out of committee. This was due to Senator Orrin Hatch we believe who was paid by Monsanto who had now bought Searle. Today they have sold to four entities including Ajinomoto and Merisant.

We have added most of the original government documents to web, perhaps the reason Dr. Brady appears not to want people to check out the Internet. If he is really sincere about wanting to educate diabetics perhaps he should get on the Internet and also get copies of medical texts on the subject. This includes Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D.

If he wants scientific peer reviewed studies here's the research Dr. Ralph Walton did for 60 Minutes in l996 when Dr. John Olney made world news on the aspartame brain tumor connection. Aspartame breaks down to DKP, a brain tumor agent. Here's 13 more studies in the last 24 months showing aspartame toxicity: How bad can it get? Here is the Trocho Study showing the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol embalms living tissue and damages DNA: I spoke to the researcher when I was in Barcelona and he told me aspartame can kill 200 million. It already has, all you have to do is read the medical text and see how many neurodegenerative diseases and tumors it causes. Some women have lost as many as 8 babies on aspartame because its an abortifacient, with no warning on the label.

If you want to know how the aspartame industry fixes studies to attempt to show an addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug shows safety, read some of these which explain the process: These are the ones on seizures. If you want more just let me know. They are pro's at flawed studies. In fact, the FDA audit, the Bressler Report is included in this article where I showed the FDA admitted to destroying incriminating aspartame information that was left out of that report:

As to economics, its about time there is concern about the mass poisoning of the public with this deadly poison. You will notice in this New York Times article after Dr. Soffritti did the Ramazzini Study peer reviewed by 7 world experts showing aspartame to be a multipotential carcinogen, the FDA was asked why they didn't ban aspartame: Notice the only concern of the FDA was the economics of the manufacturers. The FDA should be so concerned about safe food and drugs and the health of a nation, and even the world.

When I lectured in New Zealand when Abby Cormack almost died from Wrigley's aspartame gum I spoke with Food Standards. They assured me there had been no studies in NZ and they relied on the FDA. So the FDA is responsible for all these sick people like Abby because they lied about aspartame safety. Because of the publicity in NZ a lot of companies are taking a stand and warning about aspartame: The Safe Food Campaign of New Zealand has a petition for ban. Here is the whole New Zealand story published in "Investigate" - Dying For a Diet Coke, by journalist extraordinaire, Chris Wheeler, Mission Possible New Zealand:

Understand until Don Rumsfeld (Rumsfeld's Plague) the FDA did speak out about aspartame. Here is what their FDA toxicologist told Congress:

On August 1, l985 the FDA's own toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress at least one of Searle's studies "has established beyond ANY REASONABLE DOUBT that aspartame is capable of inducing brain tumors in experimental animals and that this predisposition of it is of extremely high significance. ... In view of these indications that the cancer causing potential of aspartame is a matter that had been established WAY BEYOND ANY REASONABLE DOUBT, one can ask: What is the reason for the apparent refusal by the FDA to invoke for this food additive the so-called Delaney Amendment to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act?"

The Delaney Amendment makes it illegal to allow any residues of cancer causing chemicals in foods. In his concluding testimony Gross asked, "Given the cancer causing potential of aspartame how would the FDA justify its position that it views a certain amount of aspartame as constituting an allowable daily intake or 'safe' level of it? Is that position in effect not equivalent to setting a 'tolerance' for this food additive and thus a violation of that law? And if the FDA itself elects to violate the law, who is left to protect the health of the public?" Congressional Record SID835:131 (August 1, l985)

So here is the admission by the FDA toxicologist who was on site that the FDA violated the law, and that's why this deadly poison is on the market today.

Dr. John Olney who founded the field of neuroscience called excitotoxicity and tried to prevent approval, wrote a 49 page report to the Board of Inquiry on how it would destroy the brains of our children, and the unborn. Here is that report: Here's the Report For Schools, articles by renowned aspartame experts to save the children: This was necessary because Dr. Olney's prophecy was fulfilled and aspartame has destroyed a generation of children. It's an abortifacient and teratogen (triggers birth defects) and endocrine disrupting agent.

Everything is a matter of public record. Lobbyists, flacks, front groups, the manufacturers and paid prostitutes weave stories of deceit, but the simple truth is like Dr. James Bowen told the FDA 20 years ago, aspartame is mass poisoning of the world: I hope you will continue to broadcast the facts and help the people of Hawaii know the truth and set the ones who use it free of their afflictions. Here is the paper by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., "What To Do If You Have Used Aspartame",
