I have spent several days lecturing at the World Environmental Conference
on Aspartame marketed as "Nutrasweet," "Equal," and "Spoonful." In the
keynote address by the EPA, they announced that there was an epidemic of
multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus, and they did not understand what
toxin was
causing this to be rampant across the United States. I explained that I was
there to lecture on exactly that subject. When the temperature of Aspartame
exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in Aspartame converts to formaldehyde
and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. (Formic
acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants.) The methanol toxicity
mimics multiple sclerosis; thus people were being diagnosed with having
multiple sclerosis in error. The multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence,
where methanol toxicity is.
In the case of systemic lupus, we are finding it has become almost as
rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers.

Also, with methanol toxicity, the victims usually drink three to four 12 oz.
Cans of them per day, some even more. In the cases of systemic lupus, which
is triggered by Aspartame, the victim usually does not know that the
aspartame is the culprit.

The victim continues its use aggravating the lupus to such a degree, that
sometimes it becomes life threatening. When we get people off the aspartame,
those with systemic lupus usually become asymptotic. Unfortunately, we
cannot reverse this disease. On the other hand, in the case of those
diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, (when in reality, the disease is methanol
toxicity), most of the symptoms disappear.

We have seen cases where their vision has returned and even their hearing
has returned. This also applies to cases of tinnitus.

During a lecture I said "If you are using Aspartame [Nutrasweet, Equal,
Spoonful, etc.) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting
pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches,
tinnitus, joint pain, depression anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred
vision, or memory loss -- you probably have Aspartame Disease!" People were
jumping up during the lecture saying, "I've got this, is it reversible?"

It is rampant. Some of the speakers at my lecture even were suffering from
these symptoms. In one lecture attended by the Ambassador of Uganda, he told
us that their sugar industry is adding Aspartame! He continued by saying
that one of the industry leader's son could no longer walk -- due in part by
product usage!

We have a very serious problem. Even a stranger came up to Dr. Espisto (one
of my speakers) and myself and said, "Could you tell me why so many people
seem to be coming down with MS?" During a visit to a hospice, a nurse said
that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet Coke addicts, had all been
diagnosed with MS. This is beyond coincidence. Here is the problem. There
were Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was included in 100 different
products. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent
hearings, but to not avail. Nothing has been done. The drug and chemical
lobbies have very deep pockets. Now there are over 5,000 products containing
this chemical, and the Patent has expired!!!!!!!

At the time of this first hearing, people were going blind. The methanol in
the aspartame converts to formaldehyde in the retina of the eye.
Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of drugs as cyanide and arsenic --
Deadly poisons!!!! Unfortunately, it just takes longer to quietly kill, but
it is killing people and causing all kinds of neurological problems.

Aspartame changes the brain's chemistry. It is the reason for severe
seizures. This drug changes the dopamine level in the brain. Imagine what
this drug does to patients suffering from Parkinson's Disease. This drug
also causes Birth Defects. There is absolutely no reason to take this
product. It is not a diet product!!! The Congressional record said, "It
makes you crave carbohydrates and will make you fat". Dr. Roberts stated
that when he got patients off aspartame, their average weight loss was 19
pounds per person. The formaldehyde stores in the fat cells, particularly in
the hips and thighs.

Aspartame is especially deadly for diabetics. All physicians know what wood
alcohol will do to a diabetic. We find that physicians believe that they
have patients with retinopathy, when in fact it is caused by the Aspartame.

The Aspartame keeps the blood sugar level out of control, causing many
patients to go into a coma. Unfortunately, many have died. People were
telling us at the Conference of the American College of Physicians, that
they had relatives that switched from saccharin to an Aspartame product and
how that relative had eventually gone into a coma. Their physicians could
not get the blood sugar levels under control. Thus, the patients suffered
acute memory loss and eventually coma and death. Memory loss is due to the
fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are neurotoxic without the other
amino acids found in protein. Thus it goes past the blood brain barrier and
deteriorates the neurons of the brain. Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon,
said, "The ingredients stimulates the neurons of the brain to death, causing
brain damage of varying degrees.

Dr. Blaylock has written a book entitled "Excitotoxins: the Taste That
Kills" (Health Press 1-800-643-2665). Dr. H.J. Roberts, diabetic specialist
and world expert on Aspartame poisoning, has also written a book entitled
"Defense Against Alzheimer's Disease" (1-800-814-9800). Dr. Roberts tells
how Aspartame poisoning is escalating Alzheimer's Disease, and indeed it is.

As the hospice nurse told me, women are being admitted at 30 years of age
with Alzheimer's disease. Dr. Blaylock and Dr. Roberts will be writing a
position paper with some case histories and will post it on the Internet 2E.
According to the Conference of the American College of Physicians, "We are
talking about a plague of neurological diseases caused by this deadly
poison". Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when Aspartame was first
marketed. He said "his diabetic patients presented memory loss, confusion,
and severe vision loss."

At the Conference of the American College of Physicians, doctors admitted
that they did not know. They had wondered why seizures were rampant (the
phenylalanine in aspartame breaks down the seizure threshold and depletes
serotonin, which causes manic depression, panic attacks, rage and violence).

Just before the Conference, I received a FAX from Norway, asking for a
possible antidote for this poison because they are experiencing so many
problems in their country. This "poison" is now available in 90 plus
countries worldwide. Fortunately, we had speakers and ambassadors at the
Conference from different nations who have pledged their help. We ask that
you help too. Print this article out and warn everyone you know. Take
anything that contains Aspartame Return to the store. Take the "No Aspartame
Test" and send us your case history. I assure you that Monsanto, the creator
of Aspartame, knows how deadly it is. They fund the American Diabetes
Association, American Dietetic Association, Congress, and the Conference of
the American College of Physicians.

The New York Times, on November 15, 1996, ran an article on how the American
Dietetic Association takes money from the food industry to endorse their
products. Therefore, they cannot criticize any additives or tell about their
link to Monsanto. How bad is this? We told a mother who had a child on
Nutrasweet to get off the product. The child was having grandmal Seizures
every day. The mother called her physician, who called the ADA, who told the
doctor not to take the child off the NutraSweet. We are still trying to
convince the mother that the Aspartame is causing the seizures 2EE very time
we get someone off of Aspartame, the seizures stop. If the baby dies, you
know whose fault it is, and what we are up against. There are 92 documented
symptoms of Aspartame, from coma to death. The majority of them are all
neurological, because the Aspartame destroys the nervous system.

Aspartame Disease is partially the cause to what is behind some of the
mystery of the Desert Storm health problems. The burning tongue and other
problems discussed in over 60 cases can be directly related to the
consumption of an Aspartame product. Several thousand pallets of diet drinks
were shipped to the Desert Storm troops. (Remember heat can liberate the
methanol from aspartame at 86 degrees F.) Diet drinks sat in the 120 degree
F. Arabian sun for weeks at a time on pallets. The service men and women
drank them all day long. All of their symptoms are identical to poisoning.

Dr. Roberts says "consuming Aspartame at the time of conception can cause
birth defects." The phenylalanine concentrates in the placenta, causing
mental retardation, according to Dr. Louis Elsas, Pediatrician
Professor-Genetics, at Emory University in his testimony before Congress.

In the original lab tests, animals developed brain tumors (phenylalanine
breaks down into DXP, a brain tumor agent). When Dr. Espisto was lecturing
on Aspartame for me, one physician in the audience, a neurosurgeon, said,
"When they remove brain tumors, they have fond high levels of Aspartame in
them."

Stevia, a sweet food, Not an Additive, which helps in the metabolism of
sugar, which would be ideal for diabetics, has now been approved as a
dietary supplement by the F.D.A. For years, the F.D.A. has outlawed this
sweet food because of their loyalty to Montsanto!!! Senator Howard
Metzenbaum wrote a bill that would have warned all infants, pregnant mothers
and children of the dangers of Aspartame. The bill would have also
instituted independent studies on the problems existing in the population
(seizures, changes in brain chemistry, changes in neurological and
behavioral symptoms). It was killed by the powerful drug and chemical
lobbies, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting
public. Since the Conference of the American College of Physicians, we hope
to have the help of some world leaders. Again, please help us too. There are
a lot of people out there who must be warned, *please* let them know this
information.
