Article written by Nancy Markle (1120197)

I have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL
CONFERENCE on "ASPARTAME marketed as 'NutraSweet', 'Equal', and
'Spoonful"'. In the keynote address by the EPA, they announced that
there was an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus, and they
did not understand what toxin was causing this to be rampant across the
United States. I explained that I was there to lecture on exactly that

When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol
ASPARTAME coverts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn
causes metabolic acidosis. (Formic acid is the poison found in the sting
fire ants). The methanol toxicity mimics multiple sclerosis; thus people
were being diagnosed with having multiple sclerosis in error. The
sclerosis is not a death sentence, where methanol toxicity is.

In the case of systemic lupus, we are finding it has become almost as
rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi
drinkers. Also, with methanol toxicity, the victims usually drink three
four 12 oz. Cans of them per day, some even more. In the cases of
lupus, which is triggered by ASPARTAME, the victim usually does not know
that the aspartame  is the culprit The victim continues its use
the lupus to such a degree, that sometimes it becomes life threatening.
When we get people off the aspartame, those with systemic lupus usually
become asymptomatic. Unfortunately, we can not reverse this disease.

On the other hand, in the case of those diagnosed with Multiple
(when in reality, the disease is methanol toxicity), most of the
disappear. We have seen cases where their vision has returned and even
their hearing has returned. This also applies to cases of tinnitus.

During a lecture I said "If you are using ASPARTAME (NutraSweet, Equal,
Spoonful, etc.) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms,
pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches,
tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech,
vision, or memory loss -- you probably have ASPARTAME DISEASE!" People
jumping up during the lecture saying, "I've got this, is it reversible?"
is rampant. Some of the speakers at my lecture even were suffering from
these symptoms. In one lecture attended by the Ambassador of Uganda, he
told us that their sugar industry is adding aspartame! He continued by
saying that one of the industry leader's son could no longer walk - due
part by product usage!

We have a very serious problem. Even a stranger came up to Dr. Espisto
of my speakers) and myself and said, '1Could you tell me why so many
seem to be coming down with MS?11 During a visit to a hospice, a nurse
that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet
Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond
Here is the problem. There were Congressional Hearings when aspartame
included in 100 different products. Since this initial hearing, there
been two subsequent hearings, but to no avail. Nothing as been done. The
drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets. Now there are over
products containing this chemical, and the PATENT HAS EXPIRED!!!!!
At the time of this first hearing, people were going blind. The methanol
the aspartame converts to formaldehyde in the retina of the eye.
Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of dmgs as cyanide and
DEADLY POISONS!!! Unfortunately, it just takes longer to quietly kill,
it is killing people and causing all kinds of neurological problems.

Aspartame changes the brain's chemistry. It is the reason for severe
seizures. This drug changes the dopamine level in the brain. Imagine
this drug does to patients suffering from Parkinson's Disease. This drug
also causes Birth Defects.

There is absolutely no reason to take this product. It is NOT A DIET
PRODUCT!!! The Congressional record said, "It makes you crave
and will make you FAT". Dr. Roberts stated that when he got patients off
aspartame, their average weight loss was 19 pounds per person. The
formaldehyde stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and

Aspartame is especially deadly for diabetics. All physicians know what
alcohol will do to a diabetic. We find that physicians believe that they
have patients with retinopathy, when in fact, it is caused by the
aspartame. The aspartame keeps the blood sugar level out of control,
causing many patients to go into a coma. Unfortunately, many have died.
People were telling
us at the Conference of the American College of Physicians, that they
relatives that switched from saccharin to an aspartame product and how
relative had eventually gone into a coma. Their physicians could not get
the blood sugar levels under control. Thus, the patients suffered acute
memory loss and eventually coma and death.

Memory loss is due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are
neurotoxic without the other amino acids found in protein. Thus it goes
past the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the neurons of the brain.
Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, said, "The ingredients stimulates the
neurons of the brain to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees.
Blaylock has written a book entitled "EXCITOTOXINS: THE TASTE THAT
(Health Press 1-800-643-2665). Dr. H.J. Roberts, diabetic specialist and
world expert on aspartame poisoning, has also written a book entitled
"DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE" (1-800-814-9800). Dr. Roberts
how aspartame poisoning is escalating Alzheimer's Disease, and indeed it
is. As the hospice nurse told me, women are being admitted at 30 years
age with Alzheimer's Disease. Dr. Blaylock and Dr. Roberts will be
a position paper with some case histories and will
post it on the Internet. According to the Conference of the American
College of Physicians, 'We are talking about a plague of neurological
diseases caused by this deadly poison".

Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when aspartame was first
He said "his diabetic patients presented memory loss, confusion, and
vision loss". At the Conference of the American College of Physicians,
doctors admitted that they did not know. They had wondered why seizures
were rampant (the phenylalanine in aspartame breaks down the seizure
threshold and depletes serotonin, which causes manic depression, panic
rage and violence).

Just before the Conference, I received a FAX from Norway, asking for a
possible antidote for this poison because they are experiencing so many
problems in their country. This "poison" is now available in 90 PLUS
countries worldwide. Fortunately, we had speakers and ambassadors at the
Conference from different nations who have pledged their help. We ask
you help too.
Print this article out and warn everyone you know. Take anything that
contains aspartame black to the store. Take the "NO ASPARTAME TEST" and
send us your case history.

I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of aspartame, knows how deadly
is. They fund the American Diabetes Association, American Dietetic
Association, Congress, and the Conference of the American College of
Physicians. The New York Times, on November 15, 1996, ran an
article on how the American Dietetic Association takes money from the
industry to endorse their products. Therefore, they can not criticize
additives or tell about their link to MONSANTO. How bad is this? We told
mother who had a child on NutraSweet to get off the product. The child
having grand mal seizures every day. The mother called her physician,
called the ADA, who told the doctor not to take the child off the
NutraSweet. We are still trying to convince the mother that the
is causing the seizures. Every time we get someone off of aspartame, the
seizures stop. If the baby dies, you know whose fault it is, and what we
are up against. There are 92 documented symptoms of aspartame, from coma
death. The majority of them are all neurological, because the aspartame
destroys the nervous system.

Aspartame Disease is partially the cause to what is behind some of the
mystery of the Dessert Storm health problems. The burning tongue and
problems discussed in over 60 cases can be directly related to the
consumption of an aspartame product. Several thousand pallets of diet
drinks were shipped to the Dessert Storm troops. (Remember heat can
liberate the methanol from the aspartame at 86 degrees F). Diet drinks
in the 120 degree F. Arabian sun for weeks at a time on pallets. The
service men and women drank them all day long. All of their symptoms are
identical to aspartame poisoning. Dr. Roberts says "consuming aspartame
the time of conception can cause birth defects". The phenylalanine
concentrates in the placenta, causing mental retardation, according to
Louis Elsas, Pediatrician Professor - Genetics, at Emory University in
testimony before Congress.

In the original lab tests, animals developed brain tumors (phenylalanine
breaks down into DXP, a brain tumor agent). When Dr. Espisto was
on aspartame me, one physician in the audience, a neurosurgeon, said,
they remove brain tumors, they have found high levels of aspartame in

Stevia, a sweet food, NOT AN ADDITIVE, which helps in the metabolism of
sugar, which would be ideal for diabetics, has now been approved as a
dietary supplement by the F.D.A. For years, the F.D.A. has outlawed this
sweet food because of their loyalty to MONSANTO.

If it says "SUGAR FREE" on the label-- DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!l!
Senator Howard Hetzenbaum wrote a bill that would have wamed all
pregnant mothers and children of the dangers of aspartame. The bill
have also instituted independent studies on the problems existing in the
population (seizures, changes in brain chemistry, changes in
and behavioral symptoms). It was killed by the powerful drug and
lobbies, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an
public. Since the Conference of the American College of Physicians, we
to have the help of some world leaders. Again, please help us too. There
are a lot of people out there who must be warned, *please* let them
know this information.
