Here Is an informative letter:

"Dear Betty Martini:

Look what I got at work today!! I'm also copying in all the others listed
and suggesting they go to to get additional information on
aspartame poisoning. Remember, it was that first e-mail message that saved
my life 18 months ago!

God Bless you and all the other hard workers,

Subject: FW: Aspartame/NutraSweet is a Deadly Poison!

This is from my Doctor friend, I thought you would like to see it as well.

Subject: NON R.E.- Aspartame/NutraSweet is a Deadly Poison!

This is an important FYI. Forward to all diet soda drinkers!!
Hi folks, the following article is pretty scary. I've decided to stick
with sacharin in my tea, and I'm going to stop drinking diet sodas that
are sweetened with Aspartame.

Article written by Betty Martini
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 I was there to lecture on exactly
that subject.
When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood
alcohol in ASPARTAME coverts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid,
which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. (Formic acid is the poison
found in the sting of fire ants.) The methanol toxicity mimics
multiple sclerosis; thus, people were being diagnosed with having
multiple sclerosis in error. The multiple sclerosis 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 to
four 12 oz. cans of them per day, some even more. In the cases of
systemic lupus, which is triggered by ASPARTAME, the victim usually
does not know that the aspartame is the culprit. The victim continues
its use aggravating 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 asymptotic. Unfortunately, we
cannot reverse this disease. On the other hand, in the case of
those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, (when in reality, the
disease is methanol toxicity), most of the symptoms 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, shooting pains, numbness in your legs,
cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain,
depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or
memory loss, you probably
have ASPARTAME DISEASE!" People were jumping
up during the lecture saying, "I've got this. Is it reversible?"
It 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 in part to product usage!
We have a very serious problem. Even a
stranger came up to Dr. Espisto, (one of my speakers) and myself and
said, "Could you tell me why so many people seem to be coming down with
MS?" During a visit to a hospice, a nurse said that six of
her friends, who were heavy Diet Coke drinkers, had all been
diagnosed with MS. This is beyond coincidence. Here is the problem.
There were Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was originally
included as a sweetener in 100 different products. Since this initial
hearing, there have been two
subsequent hearings but to no avail. Nothing has been done.
The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets. Now there are
over 5,000 products containing this chemical, and the PATENT HAS
EXPIRED!!!! At the time of this first hearing, people were
going blind. The methanol in the Aspartame converts to formaldehyde
in the retina of the eye. Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class
of drugs as cyanide and arsenic - DEADLY POISONS!!! Unfortunately,
it just takes longer to quietly kill, but 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 what this drug does
to patients suffering from Parkinson's Disease. This drug also uses
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 Carbohydrates 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 thighs. Aspartame is especially
deadly for diabetics. All physicians know what wood 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.
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 had relatives that switched from saccharin to an
aspartame product and how that relative had eventually gone into a
coma.Their physicians could not get the blood sugar levels under
Thus, the patients suffered acute memory loss and eventually coma
and death. Memory loss is due the fact that aspartic acid and
phenylalanine are neurotoxic without the other amino acids found protein.
Thus it goes past the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the
neurons of the brain. Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, said, "The
ingredients stimulates the neurons of the brain to death, causing brain
damage of varying degrees. Dr. Blaylock has written a book
1-800-643-2665). Dr. H. J. Roberts,
diabetic specialist and world expert on aspartame poisoning, has also
(1-800-814-9800). Dr. Roberts tells how spartame poisoning is
escalating Alzheimer's Disease, and indeed it
is. As the hospice nurse told me, women are being admitted at 30
years of age with Alzheimer's Disease.
Dr. Blaylock and Dr. Roberts will be writing 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
by this deadly poison. Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when
aspartame was first marketed. He said, "His diabetic
patients presented memory loss, confusion, and severe 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 attacks, 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 that you help too. Print this
article out and warn everyone you know. Take anything that
contains aspartame back to the store. Take the "NO ASPARTAME
TEST" and send us your case history. I assure you that MONSANTO,
the creator of Aspart ame, knows how deadly it is. They fund
the American Association, American Dietetic Association Congress,
and the Conference of the American College of Physicians. The New
York Times, November 15, 1996, ran an article on how the
American Dietetic Association takes money from the food industry to
endorse their products. Therefore, they cannot criticize any
additives or tell about their link to MONSANTO. How bad is this?
We told a mother who had a child on NutraSweet
to get off the product. The child was having grand mal
seizures every day. The mother called her physician, who called the ADA,
told the doctor not to take the child off the NutraSweet. We are
still trying to convince the mother that the Aspartame 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 to 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 Desert Storm health problems. The burning tongue and other
problems discussed in over 60 cases can be directly related to the
consumption of
Aspartame product. Several thousand pallet of diet drinks were
shipped to the Desert Storm troops. (Remember heat can liberate
the methanol from the aspartame at 86 degrees F.) Diet drinks
sat in the 120 degree F Arabian sun for weeks
at a time on pallets The servicemen and women drank them all day long.
All of
their symptoms are identical to aspartame poisoning.
Dr. Roberts says consuming Aspartame at the
time of conception can cause birth defects." According to Dr. Louis
Elsas, Pediatrician and
Professor of Genetics, at Emory University, In his testimony before
Congress.The phenylalanine concentrates in the lacenta, causing mental
retardation. In the original lab tests, animals developed brain
tumors, phenylalanine breaks down into DXP, a brain tumor agent.)
When Dr. Espisto was lecturing on aspartame,
one physician in the audience, a neurosurgeon, said, "When they
remove brain tumors, they have found high levels of aspartame in
them." 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 FDA for years,
FDA 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. Senator Howard Hetzenbaum wrote a bill that
would have warned all infants, pregnant mothers and children of the
of aspartame.The bill would have also
instituted independent studies on the problems existing in the
(seizures, changes in brain chemistry, changes inneurological and
behavioral symptoms). It was killed by the powerful drug and chemical
lobbies, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an
unsuspecting public.
Since the Conference of the American College of Physicians, we hope
to have the help of several 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.

Folger's brand is now promoting a gourmet coffee called "Mocha Latte". Please be aware that it contains aspartame.

The scientific article linked below mentions a methyl aspartate compound as being "involved in the toxic effects of excessive glutamate". Could this compound be created when aspartame is eaten and reaches body temperature?:

This is fascinating, Roy. We are always wondering just what happened to us when suddenly we became unable to eat anything that contained MSG. I ate it all the time as a child and young adult, and had no problems. Then I went downhill quickly. I do know that I used to drink diet soft drinks all the time when they came out, too. I used Equal in my drinks, just as many of my friends did. We have read reports that the Gulf War syndrome is the result of the huge amounts to Diet soft drinks that were made available to our thirsty soldiers. It's just one theory, but it makes sense to me that they are suffering so many of the symptoms we do. Perhaps the aspartame messed up their glutamate receptors, too. I'm sure they got lots of MSG in their food, too...a deadly combination. And I have a strong suspicion that the government knows lots more than they will say, but they are covering their own folly. My question is this. I need more calcium since I am post menapausal, and I don't drink dairy. I do take 1/2 t. of Beyond-A-Century Tri-Salts, which are calcium, magnesium, and, and potassium, about every other day, now. Would TOO much calcium in this form add to the problem of keeping the "door" to the glutamate receptor open too much, and thus allowing too much glutamte to get in? Good link, Roy. Maybe we should be contacting some of the researchers lsited on the site.

Maybe when we contact the researchers we can ask if any of them would be interested in speaking at the convention that's being discussed.

They could touch on some of the other hazards out there, too (I don't see everything on this list as a proven hazard, but there's too much that is):
