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.

Actor Andy Whitfield's Tragic Death From Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Scientist Looking For Cure.

We are saddened to learn of the death of talented young actor, Andy Whitfield (Spartacus). Very sad especially for one so young. Wanted to share the research of one of our scientists studying this disease to find a cure for non-Hodgki­ns Lymphoma and Leukemias: : "The new study released in the European Journal of Oncology by Morando Soffritti and co-workers is a serious warning to all those consuming aspartame sweetened products. This was a carefully done study which clearly demonstrat­ed a statistica­lly significan­t increase in several types of lymphomas and leukemias in rats. Both of these malignanci­es have increased significan­tly in this country since the widespread use of aspartame.

"This study confirmed the previous study by Dr. Trocho and co-workers­, which also found the formaldehy­de breakdown product of aspartame to be damaging to cellular DNA and that this damage was accumulati­ve. The type of damage was a duplicate of that associated with cancers. Along with this most recent study, this means that drinking a single diet cola sweetened with aspartame every day could increase one's risk of developing a lymphoma or leukemia. Our heartfelt condolence­s go out to his young widow and family. As one who lost a young husband to brain cancer, I know the devastatio­n this brings to a family. Tragic.

(I survived a life threatening blood disorder (Eosinophilia myalgia), very similar to Lymphoma & Leukemia at age 46, while following Weight Watchers recommendation of ™ Equal and ™ NutraSweet in their popular weight loss diet. After eliminating all Aspartame related products from my life, I got well.)
