> lupus, and they did not understand which toxin is 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 coverts 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 as having multiple sclerosis in error. The multiple
> sclerosis is not a death sentence, whereas methanol toxicity is.
> In the case of systemic lupus, we are finding it has become almost as
> rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially in Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi
> drinkers. Also, with methanol toxicity, the victims usually drink three to
> four 12 oz. cans of these drinks 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 it sometimes becomes life
> threatening. When we get people off the ASPARTAME, those with systemic
> lupus usually become asymptomatic. 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 stated, 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, then it is possible you may be
> experiencing 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 were suffering from the identified 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 to by-product
> usage! We have a very serious problem. After the lecture, one attendee
> approached Dr. Esposito (one of my speakers) and myself and said, Could
> you tell me why so many people seem to be coming down with MS?
> Additionally, during a visit to a hospice, a nurse related 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 no 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,
> nevertheless, it is killing people and causing neurological problems in
> various degrees.
> 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 removed patients off ASPARTAME products, 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
> (800-814-9800). Dr. Roberts tells how ASPARTAME poisoning is escalating
> Alzheimer's Disease.
> 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, relating case histories and will be posting it on the
> Internet. 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 that 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 the reasons why this
> was occurring. They had wondered why seizures were rampant. It is known
> that 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 there are widespread problems in
> their country. It should be noted that 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.
> Please print this article and share it with everyone you know to warn
> them about the seriousness of consuming this poison. Secondly, take any
> product that contains ASPARTAME back to the store where it was purchased.
> 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. This
> large company funds the American Diabetes Association, American Dietetic
> Association, Congress, and the Conference of the American College of
> Physicians. On November 15, 1996, The New York Times, ran an article on
> how the American Dietetic Association takes money from the food industry
> to endorse their products. Therefore, they can not 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

> symptoms of ASPARTAME, from coma to death. The majority of them are all
> neurological, because the ASPARTAME destroys the nervous system.
> ASPARTAME DISEASE is believed to be part of the cause regarding the
> mystery of the Dessert 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 Dessert Storm troops. Remember, heat can

> 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
