ASPARTAME APPROVED VIA ILLEGAL DOCUMENTS SUBMITTED TO FDA FOR APPROVAL IN 1981 - Drug Company later lost 9 mil Law Suit for Falsifying Lab Tests
Deadly Diet Soda, the truth about Aspartame
During the Gulf War, the military had pallets of Diet soda sitting out in the intense heat, this is how they discovered that Aspartame turns to formaldehyde at temperatures that exceed 86 degrees. My advice would be to not consume any product that contain any artificial sweetener due to the fact that they are changing the name because of public awareness.
Facts They Don't want you to know about Artificial Sweeteners
Food Safety Expert / Author, Mary Nash Stoddard In the original lab tests, ASPARTAMEcaused 4 kinds of tumors: Brain Tumors / Breast Tumors / Pancreatic Tumors / Uterine Tumors.
Results of these tests were criminally falsified - then submitted to FDA! When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees Fahrenheit [body temperature is: 98.6], the 10% methanol [wood alcohol] in ASPARTAME [aka NutraSweet/Equal] converts to formaldehyde [embalming fluid] and then to formic acid [toxin found in ant sting venom].
Aspartame may be the unidentified environmental trigger for: Brain Tumors - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - Lyme Disease - PMS - Migraine - Mild to Severe Depression - Carpal Tunnel - Arthritis - Meniere's - MS [Multiple Sclerosis] - Epilepsy - Anxiety/Phobia Disorders - Alzheimer's - ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease - Eosinophilia Myalgia Syndrome [EMS] - Graves Disease - Tinnitus - Fibromyalgia - Stroke - Heart Disease - Lupus - Mental Illness - Attention Deficit Disorder - other "Difficult-to-Diagnose" Diseases.
Aspartame poisoning can trigger the following: Chronic Fatigue; Lupus; Graves Disease; Alzheimer's; Fibromyalgia; Multiple Sclerosis; Heart Attacks; Brain Tumors; Pancreatic Cancer; Breast Cancer; Uterine Cancers; and Mental Disorders.
Three Senate Hearings have been conducted on the safety of aspartame - yet no official action has been taken by our government. Aspartame Consumer Safety Network's Mary Nash Stoddard, representing a constituency of over 10,000 individuals worldwide has provided formal testimony at the Senate Hearing in 1987 and has on numerous occasions since then, registered formal objections both in writing and in person to the FDA; FAA; EPA; USDA; Presidents Bush and Clinton; Secretary of Defense Cohen and various members of Congress. James Bowen, M.D., outspoken anti-aspartame advocate had his license to practice medicine revoked in eight states because medical boards found not that he had "harmed" a patient, but that he was "delusional" about aspartame's adverse effects. Dr. Bowen [appeared on CBS Evening News with Dan Rather in 1984 talking about his case of Lou Gehrig's Disease which he reversed by getting off aspartame].
Dr. Bowen states, "Aspartame's adverse effects have to be non-specific, affecting virtually every organ of the body. Otherwise, it [aspartame] would have been off the market within the first two years!"
When ACSN's founder, Food Safety Expert, Mary Nash Stoddard met with FDA and FAA officials in Washington [87-88] they claimed their hands were tied.
They were unwilling to undo the wrongs [including criminal actions taken on the part of those submitting aspartame for approval] that had been committed in allowing aspartame to remain illegally on the market. The Supreme Court refused to hear the petition regarding aspartame's illegal entry into the marketplace - filed in Washington D.C. by Consumer Attorney and ACSN co-founder, James Turner, Esq. Does MONSANTO have a "gatekeeper" on the U.S. Supreme Court in the form of former Monsanto attorney, Judge Clarence Thomas?
Law suits have been settled out of court. In 1992, G.D. Searle [wholly-owned subsidiary of Monsanto Chemical, St. Louis, MO since 1985] lost their exclusive patent on the pharmaceutical sweetener and now there are over 10,000 products containing aspartame as both active and inactive ingredient. [It is not always listed clearly on the ingredient label.] Diketopiperazine [DKP], a known brain tumor agent, is a breakdown product of aspartame.
Dr. John Olney of Washington University Medical School in St. Louis, shows a 10% rise in the two specific forms of brain tumors that showed up in lab tests: Astrocytomas and Glioblastomas [glio cell tumors], since aspartame came onto the market in the early eighty's. Formaldehyde [embalming fluid], a breakdown product of methanol [wood alcohol] in aspartame is found on the EPA's list of hazardous chemicals. Phenylalanine [50% of molecule] in aspartame can change the chemistry of the brain and lower the seizure threshold, according to studies done by Dr. Richard Wurtman, head of brain science at MIT. Phenylalanine also blocks production of a neurotransmitter - serotonin, which may result in mood swings; sleep disorders; mild to suicidal depressions and aberrant behaviors in some. Prozac and L-Tryptophan both increase serotonin levels.
A newsletter published by the Association of Birth Defect Children, shows Phenylalanine in aspartame can be responsible for both mild and severe birth defects - including permanent neurological damage. Aspartic Acid [40% of the molecule] in aspartame can change DNA, caused holes in the brains of lab animals and is classified as a neuroexcitatory amino acid.
Aspartame can sabotage weight loss attempts. Many report a paradoxical weight gain while using the products sweetened by aspartame. A study done at Leeds University in the U.K. showed weight gains by the men in the study on aspartame. Physicians and researchers know what damage may be caused by ingesting wood alcohol. Two teaspoons have been know to cause death.
[Every 12-oz can of diet soda which contains 200 mg. of aspartame may contain as much as 20 mg. of methanol.] The effect of methanol on the eye, liver, pancreas and other organs of the body are well documented in the scientific literature. In nature, ethanol, methanol's antidote is always present to neutralize the toxin. There is no ethanol in aspartame for protection. Aspartame can be especially hazardous to anyone with a preexisting medical condition such as diabetes.
Manufacturers of aspartame and makers of the thousands of products which contain the fake sweetener, generously fund in various ways, the following so-called independent organizations: American Diabetes Association, American Dietetic Association, members of Congress, prestigious medical schools and others. [The New York Times - 11/15/96 - reported the American Dietetic Association takes money from the food industry to endorse their products].

About the author of this article: Mary Nash Stoddard earned international recognition through public appearances and interviews in media as a pioneer of the burgeoning worldwide anti-aspartame movement.
As Aspartame Consumer Safety Network's founder and spokesperson for over two and a half decades, she is acclaimed for her high profile stand against any unwarranted pollution of our food supply by irresponsible food and drug manufacturing practices. Stoddard defends her position with dozens of articles from peer-reviewed medical journals and over 10,000 adverse reactions to the artificial sugar sweetener in her files.
Retained frequently by media as an articulate Consumer Advocate and resource for numerous stories on national and international TV, Stoddard also provided eye opening testimony at Senate Hearings in Washington. Her important "Sixty Minutes" segments aired in both the U.S. and Australia. Stoddard's book, Deadly Deception - The Story of Aspartame, is acclaimed globally as an invaluable resource. Certified Expert Witness on the subject of the dangerous food additive, aspartame and popular consultant to doctors, scientists, attorneys, airline pilots and health care professionals, Stoddard is often referred to as pilot's "Guardian Angel" for work done on their behalf.

great. I had been chosen for a special assignment and sent to the
Aleutian's to provide an essential air service in an area of tremendous
distances, horrendous weather, and unbelievable isolation, where only a few
pilots had ever gone before, some never to return. Yet I thrived in this
environment, confident that I could handle any weather and mechanical
problems or whatever else got in my way. Feeling that I had arrived, life
could not get any better. At the peak of health, I soared high on silver

seemingly unwanted, my career stripped away forever. Words alone cannot
describe the magnitude of the void that now flooded my life. And, all because of a
sweetener? How sad."
