BIO Mary Nash Stoddard on Twitter

PRESENTING: MARY NASH STODDARD - Co-Founder of the massive international anti-aspartame movement in the mid 1980's, following the brain tumor death of her forty two year old husband, Mike. Ms. Stoddard suffered a life threatening aspartame-related blood disorder in 1985, whereupon, The NutraSweet Co. offered her an all-expense paid vacation for two anywhere in the world, if she would agree to be tested by their doctors. She declined, with the blessing of her doctor, and the rest is history. She has conducted multi-national lecture tours and is a popular visiting professor at colleges, universities and medical schools. "Deadly Deception - Story of Aspartame" is a toxicology sourcebook, edited by Ms. Stoddard, documenting the harmful effects of the world's most toxic artificial sweetener. The companion one hour "Deadly Deception" video is further documentation - taped at a prestigious scientific conference. Stoddard's efforts, over more than two decades, led to the present rejection of the sweetener by many of the food and beverage giants of industry, as they rush to distance themselves from the liabilities associated with use of a neuro-toxic substance in their products. She has testified in court as an Expert Medical Witness and like her counterpart, Erin Brokovitch, helped with a number of lawsuits on behalf of consumers. Her powerful message has reached millions around the world through the airwaves on radio and television, in print and through popular personal appearances.

This bogus email talked about on the Internet and, is from an anonymous source. We always sign our emails and articles. Unfortunately, this is a sophomoric, gobble-de-gook cartoon of what we've been doing all these years. It's filled with inaccuracies too lengthy to go into now. But, it was generated by the people we are fighting to make fun of the entire anti-aspartame movement. No journalist worth his salt will go near it and that's the purpose.

Sorry, but this email is as phony as a three dollar bill. I am embarrassed to read it, yet it, for some reason [they know what they're doing] has gone 'viral' and friends keep emailing it to me, thinking it came from our campaign. I assure you, it did not. It was fashioned to 'look' that way to make fun of our work. And, to give something to have a field day with.

We always appreciate rational, documented and signed writings that further explain the harmful effects of aspartame sweetenersI At the same time, we bitterly resent these blatantly deliberate efforts to trick the readers by presenting false information as fact. You want the real story - tell people to go to our official website -

Thank you,
Mary Nash Stoddard, Author Deadly Deception Story of Aspartame (Odenwald Press 1998)
Founder: Aspartame Consumer Safety Network and Pilot Hotline since 1987
