Subject: For Global Release: Sudden Death Epidemic, Athletes are
dropping like Flies ---- The Aspartame Correlation - Dr. Bowen
discusses death of John Ritter. Contact Betty Martini, 770
Mission Possible intl,

The CDC reports that Sudden Cardiac Death, the nation's #1 killer
ended the lives of 460,000 Americans in 1999. SCD is a catastrophe in
which the heart stops abruptly without warning. It kills its victims
within minutes. It is estimated that 95% of victims die before
reaching the hospital. Often SCD happens to outwardly healthy people
with no known heart problems; high school, college and professional
athletes and thousands of children.

New York State has mandated automatic external defibrillators (AEDs)
be provided for all schools and athletic events on campus or off.
Illinois passed a similar law. In California they talk of making
defibrillators as common as fire extinguishers.

The Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association donated 73 AEDS so all of
their school gyms and playing fields will be equipped to fight this
devastation. The Philadelphia School District estimates 7,000-10,000
American children and youths die annually from SCD. Said Chief of
Cardiology Victoria Vetter, M.D. at the Children's Hospital "I
diagnose, treat and follow hundreds of children from the Philadelphia
region with cardiac issues." On 9/12 came the tragic report of 13
year old Emil Gadjev's collapse and death while playing soccer here in

Sudden Cardiac Death is not a "heart attack" or myocardial infarction,
caused by clogged arteries. Its an electrical problem in which the
cardiac conduction system that generates the impulses regulating the
heart suddenly output rapid or chaotic electrical impulses, or both.
The heart ceases its rhythmic contractions, the brain is starved of
oxygen and the victim loses consciousness in seconds.

It was only yesterday in a conversation with Dr. James Bowen about
aspartame and sudden death in athletes he said findings were pointing
a finger at this toxin. "Both the shock from strenuous athletics in
combination with aspartame consumption, and stresses lead to
activation of shock mechanism including the elaboration of Arginine
vasopressin in the hypothalamus which results in cerebral edema and
cardiac congestion and pulmonary edema in combination with severe
potassium wastage which is a sure ticket to sudden death, especially
in the face of the many damages inflicted by aspartame. Since
aspartame is already well known for causing neuroendocrine
abnormalities such serotonin elevations and suppression in various
areas of the brain, along with depletion of dopamine, due to its
phenylalanine isolate poisoning and hypothalamic damage from its
extreme neuroexcitotoxin effect and formaldehyde formic acid poisoning
especially focused in the hypothalamus, I would expect anyone with
expertise in these areas could verify the direct effect of aspartame
poisoning in producing the fatal aberrant shock mechanism in those
exposed to it. The mere occurrence of severe athletic stress does not
do so by itself."

Aspartame triggers an irregular heart rhythm, and interacts with
cardiac medication. It damages the cardiac conduction system and
causes sudden death. What Dr. Bowen is saying, of course, is that its
not just hitting their hearts but hypothalamus and neuroendocrine
system. It exacerbates the damages to the cardiac conduction system -
it exacerbates the arrhythmia because of the cardiac conduction system
damage, taking down the athletes from both directions and its

Of interest is the report of the Telegraph in the UK having to do with
an investigation of why children having mild seizures that normally
don't cause death die before they can get to a hospital. Dr. Bowen
responded: "Sudden death during seizures is almost always from
cardiac standstill due to arrhythmias. There are several ways that
this is due to aspartame damage. Aspartame and methyl alcohol
poisoning are noted for damaging myocardium and the specialized form
of myocardium called the cardiac conduction system. This kind of
damage leads to susceptibility to arrhythmias. The aspartame and
methyl alcohol poisoning cause immense damage to the mitochondria and
to MtDNA which perpetuates the mitochondria damage. The myocardium
and cardiac conduction system never get to rest. They are constantly
at work pumping blood, therefore they are very highly concentrated in
mitochondria to accommodate the metabolic needs of this tremendous
work load. Therefore, mitochondrial damage is more highly reflected
in the heart. Damaged mitochondria produce increased amounts of free
radicals and other abnormal metabolites that produce arrhythmias. The
person using NutraSweet may have a markedly decreased intake of
mineral and vitamin co-enzyme factors which also sensitizes the heart
to arrhythmias. Seizures always put unusual demands on the
cardiorespiratory system and seizures due to NutraSweet occur more
frequently and in spite of otherwise adequate antiseuzure medication.
Aspartame creates unusual medical toxicity from the antiseizure
medication. It should be no surprise then that people are dropping
dead from this aspect of aspartame toxicity."

In Nov 1984 the Center for Disease Control reviewed 213 of 592 cases
of aspartame complaints. Some of these included cardiac arrest.
seizures, disorientation, hyperactivity, extreme numbness,
excitability, memory loss, loss of depth perception, liver impairment,
severe mood swings and even DEATH. Frederick L. Trowbridge added an
executive summary to the report which conflicted with the information
in the report and said that the complaints were generally of a mild
nature. Obviously experts would disagree that such things as
seizures, cardiac arrest and DEATH are "mild" problems. Then the CDC
put the summary on their web site which is where you will find it, and
left off the investigation so the public would not get the real facts.
But it is on for anyone who wants to read the 146 page
investigation. When I asked the CDC why they allowed this phony
summary, their only excuse was "Dr. Trowbridge is now retired". It
would save a lot of lives if government agencies like the FDA and CDC
would give the public the facts. When those responsible to solve the
problem ARE the problem its a sad commentary. They have become simply
branch offices of the manufacturers of this neurotoxin.

The sudden death of John Ritter on Sept 12 stunned the nation. It was
discussed on the news by Roy Flood, M.D., that he died from an
undiagnosed dissection of the aorta. While we don't even know if
Ritter used aspartame, Dr. Flood mentioned this is usually triggered
by having hypertension for several years and aspartame causes this
"big time."

H. J. Roberts, M.D., F.A.C.P., F.C.C.P. is a world renowned Board
Certified and Recertified Internist who declared Aspartame Disease to
be a global plague and published the medical text, Aspartame Disease:
An Ignored Epidemic, He is an internationally
known medical consultant and independent researcher. He is the
Director of the Palm Beach Institute for Medical Research since l964
and a member of prestigious medical and scientific organizations.
They include the American College of Physicians, the Endocrine Society
and the American Academy of Neurology. The editors of a national
medical publication selected Dr. Roberts as "The Best Doctor in the
U.S." He has been knighted by the Order of St. George for his
professional and humanitarian effort. His first text, Difficult
Diagnosis, was used by 60,000 doctors, especially to prepare for their
Board examinations.

Dr. Roberts says in Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic about
aspartame and hypertension: "Increased brain phenylalanine can
elevate norepinephrine levels becoming clinically manifest as
hypertension. A comparable phenomenon has been demonstrated in
spontaneously hypertensive rats. Another plausible mechanism involves
increased phenylalanine metabolites, especially dopamine, in the
presence of excess insulin. Tourian (l985) demonstrated that insulin
potentiates the synthesis of phenylalanine hydroxylase in tissue

He also says: "The documentation of essential hypertension in an
insulin-resistant state associated with hyperinsulinemia (Ferrannini
l987), but independent of obesity, is germane because many aspartame
reactors have reactive hypoglycemia. furthermore, phenylalanine
increases insulin release. In the face of continued hyperinsulinemia,
the down regulation of insulin receptors (and ensuing decreased
insulin action), the increased reabsorption of sodium and sympathetic
stimulation can exaggerate hypertension."

Dr. Roberts says: "Other clinical observations suggest a relationship
between phenylalanine and tyramine. Severe hypertension may occur
when increased tyramine (present in certain cheeses and alcoholic
beverages) is consumed by persons taking monoamine oxidase inhibitors
and cough cold preparation or appetite suppressants that continue
ephedrine, phenylephrine or phenylpropanolamine."

Two-thirds of the population is using aspartame and its hard to avoid.
So while we don't know at this point if John Ritter was consuming it,
Dr. Bowen said: "The death of John Ritter highlights another
possible ill resulting from the ingestion of aspartame. Aspartame is
well recognized among its victims for causing connective tissue
diseases in their body. Since much of the aorta consists of
fibroelastic connective tissue it would only be logical aspartame
would also cause degeneration of this vital tissue."

He also said "Aspartame really doesn't spare any structure or system
in the body so its not logical to try and mentally isolate it to a few
structures or few systems of the body. In fact, the FDA identified 92
documented symptoms triggered by aspartame including death, the
ultimate symptom."

The Atlanta Journal Constitution on 9/11 wrote: "Sudden death in
high school athletes is a topic that has received a lot of attention
recently". It mentioned some children have serious heart conditions
that have not been diagnosed. Dr. Bowen remarked, "In many cases
aspartame victims may have had pre-existent or congenital undiagnosed
cardiac problems. The fatal abnormalities induced by NutraSweet would
have quicker and greater effect on these unfortunate individuals."

The article in the AJC discusses accidents that may have been caused
by sudden cardiac arrest. It brings to mind the death of Sonny Bono
who had an accident while skiing and hit a tree. The newspaper
reported Bono was not drinking alcohol, only a "Diet Coke". Aspartame
also causes confusion and disorientation, memory loss, etc. One pilot
who asked that Mission Possible start an Aviation Div which we did
said: "Dumb I'm not but I couldn't make a decision on aspartame and
crashed my plane into a tree." And yes, there are now defibrillators
on planes. Pilot Neill, American Airlines, was drinking a diet drink
and died in flight. The Captain landed the plane for the body to be
removed and to get a new co-pilot. An unauthorized autopsy was
requested by American but they refused to allow his widow to see the

The New England Journal of Medicine published the article "Magnitude
of Left Ventricular Hypertrophy and Risk of Sudden Death in
Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy." Dr. Bowen said: "Yes, that is what
aspartame does."

One article on Cardiomyopathy and Its Relation to Exercise: Sudden
Death in Athletes
says: "According to the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta 100,000
young athletes die each year from all cardio-vascular disorders,
including cardiomyopathy, as a result of participation in sports.
This is twice as many as due in auto accidents. Of the 100,000 who
die annually, 45,000 of them play basketball, not boxing or football.

An article in Science in the last year which was discussed in the
Atlanta Journal Constitution said 450,000 people each year are
victims of sudden death. An article back in 2001 by the Journal of
Athletic Training reported: "In the US each year, sudden cardiac
arrest kills 350,000, which is approximately 1000 people per day."
..... "The exact incidence of sudden cardiac arrest in athletes is
unknown because no universal, standard surveillances method is used."
So the figures could even be greater.

President Bush had a fainting spell and claimed this was due to a
pretzel. Blackouts are common in aspartame victims and President
Bush is constantly drinking Diet Coke. An interesting article on
Medscape is titled Syncope (fainting) as a predictor of sudden cardiac
arrest. Kathy Fulford (now Mission Possible Camilla, Georgia) was
certain she was dying and was having blackouts and one day almost hit
a car head on. Her friend Darlene wanted to find out what was killing
Kathy. Ten doctors were unable to diagnose the cause of her problems,
mainly because the FDA, aspartame manufactures and professional
organizations funded by the manufacturer push propaganda. She put her
symptoms into the Internet and came up on She got off
aspartame and all problems disappeared. She said her neighbor, a 46
year old beautician, drank Diet Coke from the time she got up until
she went to bed and her mind was going. She, too, had blackouts and
was found dead on the floor.

Probably the worst case is that of Charles Fleming, who drank 10 diet
drinks a day and other aspartame products. He became ill after
playing basketball and died. His autopsy was classic of death by
aspartame. It showed the pulmonary edema that is often evident. Dr.
H. J. Roberts wrote an article published in Townsend Letter for
Doctors on this. It also showed the chronic methanol poisoning and it
is this that affects the dopamine system of the brain and causes the
addiction. Methanol is classified as a narcotic, and is one of the
three components of aspartame. It also showed the fatty liver. The
Trocho Study in Spain in 1998 showed that the formaldehyde converted
from the methanol accumulates in the cells and damages DNA with most
toxicity in the liver. It also showed the usual cardiac damage. The
police did not know that aspartame causes chronic methanol poisoning
(one of the reason it mimics MS - destroys the central nervous system)
and thought his wife murdered him even though she passed their
polygraph test which was not admitted in court. She was sentenced to
50 years in prison where she remains in Troy, Virginia, so frightened,
a woman who was a Sunday School and helped the homeless. Aspartame
caused her to lose her husband, her home, her children and her
freedom. A film production company making an aspartame documentary
recently interviewed her.

Dr. Bowen wrote: "The death of Charles Flemming, an athlete who died
after consuming very large amounts of aspartame and creatine both of
which lead to the formation and release of large amounts of methanol
in the body upon their consumption has led me to review the medical
literature in related topics because his wife was falsely imprisoned
for poisoning him with methanol which she never had any access to nor
were any proper forensics applied to really identify the source of the
methanol poisoning from which he apparently died. Charles had used
large amounts of Gatorade and dumped in lots of creatine, three times
the recommended dose. Aspartame and Creatine are both N methyl
esters. They are both substrates from which the body by obligatory
mechanism forms methanol and thus they are additive in their effect of
producing the highly destructive methanol - formaldehyde - formic acid
- carbon monoxide toxic axis in the human body. Charles had engaged
in vigorous athletics - basketball. My more complete review of this,
and the topics essential to the biochemical comprehension of the
issues that his death thereupon hinged, and in fact occurred are
posted on my web page at

"There have been a lot of similar deaths of well known athletes after
consuming creatine and sports drinks and then engaging in
forced/competitive athletic activities. My article on aspartame and
sudden death gives a good foundation for understanding the condition
your heart and cardiac conduction system are left in if you consume
aspartame. The acute activation of the methanol-formaldehyde-formic
acid-carbon monoxide toxic axis from concurrent use of creatine and
aspartame is, of course, a final blow to the already
decomposed/compromised heart, and its conduction system. We, however,
need sources to come forward and identify the fact that all or most of
the other mentioned suddenly demised athletes were indeed aspartame

Charles Fleming was also using Ephedra which got a bad rap. It is not
the ephedra but the aspartame, and there is an article about this on
the web site of the Idaho Observer, "Government attack on ephedra
cover for aspartame poisoning." Of course, aspartame interacts with
most every drug used to treat the problems it causes and is also a
chemical hypersensitization agent so it interacts with vaccines,
toxins, etc. And it will interact with ephedra having to do with
catecholamines. These are biologically achive amines, epinephrine and
norepinephrine. derived from the amino acid tyrosine. They have
marked effect on the nervous and cardiovascular systems, metabolic
rate, temperature and smooth muscle. Tyrosine is another breakdown
product of aspartame. The phenylalanine is converted to tyrosine by
the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase. Tyrosine undergoes a change to
dihydroxphenylalanine (levodopa) which then is transformed to
dopamine. If a product is going to be taken off the market because it
interacts with aspartame, then the FDA needs to immediately remove all
cardiac medication, insulin, antidepressants, anti-seizure medication,
hormones, Lidocaine and even Coumadin. It doesn't end. And
pharmaceutical companies have been alerted and refuse to even remove
aspartame such as Pfizer making the Listerine Strips which contain
aspartame. Over 50 people have called about having seizures from
these strips and Pfizer refuses to even now answer a note. Maxalt is
a treatment for headaches by Merck, and headache is number one on the
FDA list of 92 symptoms from four types of seizures to coma and death.
The problem is that Maxalt has aspartame in it. They have been
written to and about for years, yet appear not to care what they are
doing to these victims. As one lady said yesterday who suffered from
Migraines and other horrendous problems triggered by aspartame, "I use
Maxalt but I always have headaches." Benadryl chewable for children
has aspartame in it. The toxin triggers urticaria or hives big time,
then they use Benadryl which gives them more of the poison. Aspartame
is escalating asthma and some of the asthma sprays have aspartame in
it. Nobody has a chance. Yet they remove ephedra which has been used
for thousands of years so it can take the rap for what aspartame is

In March, 2003 when the Idaho Observer wrote that article on ephedra
as a cover for aspartame poisoning they were writing about another
athlete who died, Baltimore Oriole's pitcher, Steve Bechler. He died
on February 17, 2003 and when Dr. Roberts spoke to Brown county
medical examiner, Dr. Joshua Perper, he was told the cause of death
was hyperthermia which caused multiple organ failure. Bechler's
temperature had reached a high of 108 degrees. When Dr. Perper was
asked how many diet drinks Bechler drank a diet, he returned a blank
stare indicting he was unaware of the fact aspartame containing diet
and sports drinks could have caused this man's untimely death. We
have since researched the issue and found that Belcher was concerned
about his fluctuating weight, and drink lots of diet drinks. Dr.
Bowen wrote an indepth report on aspartame raising temperature.

Dr. H. J. Roberts who was nominated for another prestigious award in
recognition for "important research accomplishment in the broad field
of metabolism, endocrinology, nutrition or for research which
contributes to a better understanding of the chemical changes
occurring in disease" has written for years on aspartame and sudden
death. In his medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, he said having to do with aspartame and abnormal
heart action: "190 (16%) reactors experienced detectable changes in
their heart rate or rhythm after consuming aspartame - including gum -
and products that did not contain caffeine. They consisted of
"fluttering" (palpitations), skipped beats and rapid heart action
(tachycardia). A number underwent heart monitoring (Holter testing)
and other studies, especially when there had been associated weakness
and faint. "

"One patient developed a slow pulse and complete heart block within
hours after consuming an aspartame drink for the first time. His
attack spontaneously subsided within one day (without requiring a
pacemaker). There has been no recurrence with aspartame avoidance. .
This subject has relevance to reports of UNEXPLAINED SUDDEN DEATH in
persons who had been consuming considerable aspartame."

Of hypertension he said that "64 aspartame reactors were found to
have elevation of their blood pressure - systolic, diastolic, or both.
Some were in their twenties. While aspartame products unequivocally
cause headache, superimposed hypertension can be a contributing
factor. .. Other patients who had been treated for hypertension could
not be adequately controlled on their maintenance medication as long
as they used aspartame. This reflects its interaction with various
drugs." ...

"The rapid heart action and the elevation of blood pressure
presumably reflect the effects of phenylalanine (an aspartame
component) and its metabolic products - dopamine, norepinephrine and
epinephrine." ....."85 aspartame reactors (7%), experienced
unexplained pain in the chest. (Many others have atypical pain
elsewhere in the body). A number were subjected to stress tests and
angiograpy for coronary heart disease which proved normal in the

Dr. Roberts was recently published in Townsend Letter for Doctors an
article on "Aspartame Induced Dyspnea and Pulmonary Hypertension. "
Dyspnea is labored breathing. This is what Charles Fleming suffered
with for about 30 days before he died. In Dr. Roberts medical text
under Shortness of Breath he says that 110 aspartame reactors (9%) who
complained of otherwise unexplained "shortness of breath" promptly
improved after avoiding these products. They predictably suffered a
recurrence on rechallenge. Had he only known he was killing himself
with aspartame and quit, Fleming would be alive today.

Dr. Roberts first text, Difficult Diagnosis, was used by 60,000
doctors, especially to prepare for their Board examinations. It was
Dr. Roberts who coined the phrase Aspartame Disease because its use is
consistent with Hippocratic writings. The symptoms are predictable
and there is a pattern. "When a large number of people all catch the
same disease at the same time, the cause must e ascribed to something
common to all." (Rosenberg 1992). It is appropriate because this
affliction fulfills these four Koch-like postulates:

* There is an identifiable cause.
* Symptoms and signs follow such exposure and are reproducible in a
* Improvement occurs after avoiding aspartame products (not always an
* The same complaints usually promptly recur on challenge.

At Dr. Roberts first press conference quoted in his first book on
aspartame in 1990 he said that if something wasn't done then in 5 or
10 years we would have a world plague on our hands. And this prophecy
has come to pass. People today are literally dropping likes flies.
He told Congress that the current wholesale ingestion of aspartame
products by over half the population constitutes an "imminent public
health hazard" because of the frequency and severity of reactions.
He says this warning should be of particular concern for high risk
groups - most notable, patients with diabetes and hypoglycemia,
pregnancy women, children, patients with epilepsy, liver, heart,
kidney disease and eating disorders, older persons with memory
impairment, the relatives of aspartame reactors and patients having

It was the famed Dr. John Olney who founded the field of neuroscience
called excitotoxicity when he did studies on aspartic acid, 40% of
aspartame, in l970 and found lesions in the brains of mice. An
excitotoxin is a product that literally stimulates the neurons of the
brain to death causing brain damage of varying degrees. This
definition is written across the back of the book Excitotoxins: The
Taste That Kills by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. who wrote on
the deadly effects of aspartame and MSG. MSG another excitotoxin has
a synergistic and additive effect with aspartame. And you have to
consider this when you think of all the products these athletes are
using like MSG that interact with aspartame.

I wrote Gatorade which Charles Fleming was using and several of the
athletes who dropped dead, and asked what was in the natural flavors,
and was it aspartate, L-Cysteine (another excitotoxin) or glutamic
acid. They have refused to answer me. for
info on MSG.

Dr. Blaylock is another world expert on aspartame who has written on
sudden death. In his article on, Aspartame, MSG and
other Excitotoxins and the Hypothalamus he talks about the effect of
excitotoxins on the sympathetic nervous system controlling centers in
the hypothalamus. "Over stimulation could result in cardiac
electrical abnormalities leading to sudden death. This has been
demonstrated by hypothalalamic stimulation experiments. There have
been clinical reports of cardiac related emergency room visits
following a meal high in excitotoxin additives. Sudden deaths
following such meals have also been reported. Since most hospitals
rarely consider this in their differential diagnosis, we have no
accurate data as to the number of ER visits and deaths related to this
event. I suspect the numbers would be quite high."

He said in conclusion, "There is compelling evidence to indicate that
food additive excitotoxins, such as aspartame, pose a serious danger
to our well being, especially so in the case of children and the
elderly. It has been demonstrated that excitotoxins in the diet can
dramatically elevate free radical generation for prolonged periods of
time and that once induced, it triggers a viscous cycle that ends in
neurons death. Most authorities now agree that elevated free radical
generation is associated with virtually all degenerative diseases as
well as most injuries and toxins. It makes little sense to expose the
general public to a product that we know increases free radical
generation so dramatically and is associated with laboratory proven
injuries to the nervous system."

Another autopsy report we have is of a woman who ingested so much
aspartame she went blind from the wood alcohol or methanol (converts
to formaldehyde and formic acid in the retina of the eye and destroys
the optic nerve). She went to the ER to find out what she had lost
her sight and dropped dead. Her autopsy is very much like others
including the pulmonary edema.

You may remember Flo Jo, a Diet Coke drinker who had a seizure and
dropped dead, no doubt another victim of aspartame, as aspartame is a
seizure triggering drug. Elton John drags his 6 pack of diet pop on
stage as he staggers with slurred speech from the methanol. Will he
be next? Several current athletes are using aspartame and showing
severe health problems already. Anna Kournikova, tennis player, is
one of them. She always seems to be having injury problems. It's
terrible for an athlete to be drinking a slow poison along with the
phosphoric acid that leeches calcium from the bones. Another athlete,
American's second best cyclist after Lance Armstrong, uses Diet Coke
and looks to be in worse and worse health.

Mark Gold of the Aspartame Toxicity Center, wrote: "I always seem to run across
articles or TV shows where athletes are using aspartame and having
health problems. One female pro athlete is so addicted that in answer
to the question, "What one thing would you want with you if stranded
on a desert island," she said, "Diet Coke." Unfortunately for her,
her health and career has gone down the tubes. Diet Coke still
sponsors some sports events. The biggest tennis tournament in the
world, Wimbledon (in the UK). This helps addict a lot of people in
the U.K. Diet Coke is a sponsor of the WNBA (the women's version of
the NBA - National Basketball Association), Etc.

Don Harkins who owns the Idaho Observer added a supplement, The
Artificially Sweetened Times, to the paper, 8 pages, for Aspartame
Awareness Weekend. It includes the Sudden Death issue and the Fleming
case. He doesn't mince words and says: "Admittedly, the research we
had already conducted on aspartame convinced us that it's devastating
to the human body. Since millions of people consume this government
approved, carcinogenic, mutagenic, neurotoxic, non-nutritive synthetic
sweetener every day, we were also convinced aspartame is helping to
DESTROY ENTIRE NATIONS. This is the real reason this paper had to be
published. " These papers can be secured by the hundreds for
distribution by contacting the Idaho Observer, a newspaper dedicated
to truth in journalism. (Idaho Observer, P. O. Box 457, Spirit Lake,
Idaho 83869, 208 255 - 2307).

And what about so much of the main stream media who for advertising
reasons don't publish so much of this issue like the story of Charles
Fleming, even though aspartame experts have written affidavits stating
the man died from aspartame without a shadow of a doubt. Are
manufacturers like Coke and Pepsi worth their protection. You can
read the protest of the National Soft Drink Association on, part of the congressional record, where they even
quoted the law stating it was illegal to put anything in carbonated
beverages that decomposes or adulterates the drink. They stated
aspartame decomposes at 86 degrees. And it decomposes into deadly
poisons! Yet, they turned around and put it in pop anyway, the reason
it was added to the congressional record. They knew the gun was
loaded when they sent it to the Persian Gulf to sit in 120 degree
Arabian sun for as long as 8 weeks. 40,000 of the troops perished.
What aspartame products are they now using in Iraq? We can see them
chewing the gum, no doubt sugarfree. Its buccal so it works like
nitroglycerin, goes through saliva straight to the brain. Wrigley has
been written for years and refuses to stop the poisoning. Even the
Enquirer hasn't written about Fleming.

Rage must rise up in the nostrils of Almighty Jehovah God as these
monsters who knowingly poison the population turn their backs on
consumers. Aspartame was originally marketed by Searle, and the FDA
wanted them indicted for fraud but both U.S. Prosecutors hired on with
the defense team and the statute of limitations expired. The Board of
Inquiry of the FDA said aspartame was not safe and to revoke the
petition for approval. CEO of Searle at the time, Don Rumsfeld, said
he would call in his markers and get it approved. It didn't matter to
him that aspartame was a deadly poison. He was on President Reagan's
transition team and the day after Reagan took office he appointed Dr.
Arthur Hull Hayes as FDA Commissioner because no FDA Commissioner in
16 years would approve aspartame. Dr. Hayes over-ruled this Board of
Inquiry of the FDA and then went to work for the PR firm of the
manufacturer and has refused to talk to the press ever since.

If you read the 8 month investigation of aspartame by United Press
International on you will see that doctors were
threatened about doing research. This will help you understand why
92% of independent peer reviewed research on aspartame shows the
problems. And if you remove 6 studies the FDA had something to do
with and one pro-industry summary, 100% of independent, peer reviewed
research on aspartame shows the problems. Read Ralph Walton, M.D. 's
report on this web site having to do with research and funding. Dr.
Walton himself did a study on aspartame which the institution had to
stop because of the problems caused by this toxin. You can understand
why Monsanto refused to sell him the aspartame. And in the UPI
investigation read about ILSE, where research funds are sought. ILSE
is funded by Coke, Pepsi, Monsanto and the like putting pressure on
Universities not to tell about aspartame or do studies. Cynthia
Crossen who wrote the book "The Tainted Truth" says the road to hell
was paved with research funds. Front groups are paid to call the
whole issue a hoax, and vital information that physicians need to
diagnose and save the lives of the people is withheld. The propaganda
put out on aspartame reads like it was written by Mother Goose. Even
physicians themselves who use aspartame and have problems don't know
where to turn. Read the story of Richard Sabates, M.D. on web.

And as I write this a sweet, frightened Sunday School teacher, Diane
Fleming, remains in prison in Troy, Virginia because her husband
Charles killed himself with large amounts of aspartame. It is this
chronic methanol poisoning mentioned in the autopsy that also is
responsible for the addiction of aspartame because it effects the
dopamine system of the brain. To add insult to injury prisons will
not allow sugar and are serving this deadly toxin to inmates. Diane
herself was using it until we convinced her to go without anything
sweet. No wonder she said she had health problems. Her headaches are
now gone.

Drop her a line and let her know people care about this horrible
injustice, have not forgotten her and are working to reunite her with
her children. This woman had spent one day a week helping the
homeless and even buying them clothes. Now lets help Diane Fleming.

Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting Don Harkins who wrote the
Artificially Sweetened Times for Aspartame Awareness Weekend at the
Atlanta Airport on his way to Austria. I gave out a couple to people
waiting for rides who read about Sudden Death and Aspartame, and the
Fleming Case. One man said: "And so its true. I mentioned to my
physician that I had friends who just dropped dead. He said he had
seen too many cases himself and did a search on the Internet. When he
read about aspartame he decided to get his patients off of it,
especially those suffering with cardiac problems. He was surprised to
find the palpitations and other problems disappeared. He said:
"There is so much controversy on this product but with the thousands
of posts about its dangers they have to be keeping something from
physicians." Indeed, what they have kept from physicians is "the
truth" about the toxicity of this poison. Help to get the word out
about this toxin, as you let Diane Fleming know she is not forgotten.
Prayerfully we work to reunite her with her children.

We are facing what may be one of the largest plagues in world history.
Aspartame has resulted in a blizzard of sudden deaths to the athletes.
Our children are falling like snow flakes. Forward this to everyone
you know, and media we ask you publish the issue to thousands. The

I have filed with the FDA a Citizens Petition for ban based on the
fact their records show aspartame to be a deadly poison and they are
lying to the public and physicians. The law requires they answer in
180 days. It has been over a year and they refuse to answer. The
front groups have been reported to the Attorney General based on Title
18, Section 1001, that is against he law to knowingly misinform the
public. He has done nothing.

Perhaps someone should remind all these government agencies who don't
have the courage to act that Henry Clay (1777 - 1852) said:
"Government is a trust, and the offices of the government are
trustees, and both the trust and the trustees are created for the
benefit of the people." Even the FDA's own toxicologist, Dr. Adrian
Gross, told Congress: "And if the FDA violates its own laws who is
left to protect the people."

Mission Possible International is a worldwide, unpaid, volunteer force
warning planet earth off aspartame, and forwarding medical facts from
the aspartame experts to the medical community who have been lied to.
Aspartame Detoxification Centers are now available in some cities.
Case histories on brain tumors, seizures, blindness and eye

Monsanto sold NutraSweet to Michael Dell's Investment Company, Childs
in Boston, Ajinomoto, their Siamese twin, another aspartame

P.S. There is a large book list on aspartame on the above web site.
For Dr. H. J. Roberts' many books on aspartame, go to For Dr. Russell Blaylock's books go to His new book Health & Nutrition Secrets to
Save Your Life is excellent on what to do if you have used aspartame,
and he has written a paper for Aspartame Awareness Weekend on what to
take, step by step, if you have used it.

These brilliant and courageous physicians mentioned above have been
exposing this deadly neurotoxic drug for years, and the fact that it
can take your life. Dr. Bowen told the FDA years ago that aspartame
is mass poisoning of the American public and more than 70+ countries
of the world. He also said that everyone involved in the marketing of
this poison including those who keep it on the market should be
criminally prosecuted. Dr. Bowen is a victim himself and suffers from
Lou Gehrigs disease like many of those who served in the Persian Gulf.
He was working in the desert drinking gallions of Diet Kool Aide.
