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.

Latest Scientific Studies Show Aspartame Causes Lymphomas and Leukemia Reports Leading Consumer Advocate
Dallas - New studies, published in scientific journals, link the artificial sweetener aspartame to lymphoma and leukemia in rats and spontaneous changes in thinking and behavior in people, Aspartame Consumer Safety Network founder reports. Stoddard is the keynote speaker at a health and nutrition conference in Detroit, Michigan, Thursday evening, September 8th.
"The release of important scientific studies - in Italy and Africa, warns that the artificial sweetener, aspartame, commonly found in diet drinks and 7,000 products worldwide, may cause more harm than once thought possible," said network founder Mary Nash Stoddard of Frisco, Texas.
"The first study was released, in the European Journal of Oncology by Morando Soffritti and coworkers," Stoddard said.
"This study clearly demonstrates a significant increase in several types of lymphomas and leukemia in rats. . . . These malignancies have increased dramatically, since the widespread use of aspartame," said neurosurgeon and author of Excitotoxins The Taste That Kills, Russell Blaylock, M.D., in Jackson, Mississippi.
The second is The dose-dependent effects of Aspartame on Serotoninergic Parameters in Albino Rats, by B.A. Iwalokun, Department of Biochemistry, Lagos State University, Lagos, Nigeria. Study results provided "strong indications that aspartame may alter serotoninergic parameters and associated behaviors," Stoddard said. The abstract was published in the abstract book from the Third International Conference on Mechanisms of Action of Neutraceuticals, at Maggie Valley Resort, North Carolina.
Dr. Richard Wurtman, a neurologist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology [MIT] in Cambridge, says aspartame may have effects that are not detectable by standard neurotoxicological texts. Specifically, Wurtman and his collaborators are concerned that excess phenylalanine in the blood can reduce the production of brain neurotransmitters - catecholamines and serotonin - by competing with their precursor amino acids for transport across the blood-brain barrier. "There is no question that you can demonstrate changes in neurotransmitter release in rats given large doses of aspartame," says Wurtman. [from an interview with writer, Tim Stephens in The Journal of NIH Research, April, 1999; VOL 3 pg. 35; title: Some Still Bitter Over NutraSweet.]
A1993 study, published in Biological Psychiatry by Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine, Ralph G. Walton, M.D. shows: "Administration of this substance [aspartame], has also been associated with aggression and bingeing." An evolving view in modern psychiatry is that although depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, impulse control disorders and eating disorders have been viewed as separate entities, they should be viewed as a continuum of disorders - all involving some degree of dysregulation of serotonin. "I believe there is overwhelming evidence that aspartame contributes to this dysregulation," said Dr. Walton.
In a 1997 lecture at University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, published, 1998 in toxicology sourcebook, Deadly Deception Story of Aspartame, Stoddard told students: "Individuals are reporting, to ACSN, cases of brain tumors, leukemia and lymphoma."
In 1986, Stoddard was diagnosed with a life threatening blood disease, eosinophilia myalgia, after adding aspartame to her daily diet. When she ceased using the sweetener, the illness went away. []

Aspartame Consumer Safety Network Pilot Hotline Our son's 3rd Grade Class in Irving TX made a huge VALENTINE for the quarantined returning Astronauts, since they were in isolation during the Valentine Holiday. The Valentine now resides in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC. NASA's EDGAR MITCHELL was the Flight Commander for the famous Apollo 14 Moon Mission. Edgar Mitchell was a true American Hero! 46 years ago this week!Manage
