Organization: Aspartame Consumer Safety Network

James Turner and I want to thank Congressman Dick Armey for
setting up the historic meeting this month with top officials of the
Food and Drug Administration. No anti-aspartame campaigner has met

 with FDA officials since the Senate Hearings in 1987, when Turner and 
Stoddard met at FDA Headquarters in Washington to present the case
 for aspartame being re-called and retested as a drug instead of a Food 
Additive. We also want to thank Environment News Network for featuring 
our story today in their widely-read publication. And, to FOX TV Washington 
for airing our story on the unprecedented meeting at FDA offices with
George Pauli, Blondell Anderson and Rudolph Harris. One major correction
to enclosed story: Congressman Armey told constituents Stoddard and
Anesthetist, Larry Taylor at a private meeting in his Dallas office [1988] that
his wife no longer drank diet drinks because they gave her headaches. 
[As far as I know Armey has never used aspartame as a sweetener.]

Prior to meeting with FDA in Washington D.C., I was the invited
guest lecturer at American University's School of Journalism, Master's Class,
Saturday, October 2.

Best wishes to you,
