Betty Martini is asking for help in spreading the word that they are now taking case histories for class action, starting with seizures, eye problems, blindness and brain tumors triggered by aspartame.

For further information, go to and click on the aspartame related sites.

For the report form, go directly to

(Betty Martini is the founder of the worldwide volunteer force, Mission Possible International, which is committed to removing the deadly chemical aspartame from our food. This poison has brought more complaints to the American Food and Drug Administration than any other additive and is responsible for 75% of such complaints to that agency. From 10,000 consumer complaints FDA compiled a list of 92 symptoms, including death. They used to mail this list out, but now you can't get the list without a congressman or Freedom of Information Act request.)

I recently contacted Bayer because I purchased Alka-Seltzer Plus tablets and was alarmed to find Aspartame in the ingredients. My previously purchsed Alka Seltzer Plus tablets was ok. Here is Bayer's response...............

Thank you for taking the time to contact Bayer HealthCare. We
appreciate your
concerned comments about aspartame.

The safety of aspartame has been substantiated by both domestic and
international organizations that include government, health, and
scientific and
regulatory agencies.

Before the Food and Drug Administration approved aspartame for human
use in 1981
it was subjected to one of the most thorough testing and regulatory
processes in
food ingredient history. Over 100 studies were done with animals and
which included normal adults and children as well as others with health
such as diabetes, obesity and various medical diagnoses. It is also
to note that aspartame was tested in amounts that were markedly higher
people would normally consume in their diets.

The FDA did not stop at the approval process. On the contrary, they
continued to keep a close watch on emerging research about aspartame
and have
repeatedly confirmed aspartame's safety for public use.

The FDA is not the only organization that has thoroughly evaluated the
on aspartame. Other prestigious organizations that have investigated
safety are the American Medical Association, American Dietetic
Centers for Disease Control, American Heart Association, American
Cancer Society
and American Diabetes Association.

Aspartame has also been approved worldwide and is currently used in
over 100
countries. This widespread use is due to the continuous evaluation and
of aspartame's safety by international safety and regulatory agencies.
organizations include the United Nations' World Health
Organization/Food and
Agriculture Organization Joint Expert Committee on

Food Additives and the Commission of the European Communities
Committee for Food.

In regards to children, aspartame is safe for children and adolescents
to use as
part of their daily, well-balanced diet. The average child consumes
much less
aspartame each day than the Acceptable Daily Intake level, or ADI,
specified by
the FDA. Also, aspartame is metabolized in the body in exactly the same
way in
children as it is in adults. Scientific studies involving children and
have also found that it has no effect on children's behavior.

If you would like to learn more about aspartame or the scientific
confirming its safety, please contact any of the following
organizations: the
Food and Drug Administration Office of Consumer Affairs, American
Association, International Food Information Council, and The Calorie

Please note that our Alka-Seltzer Plus Liquid Gels and Liquid do not

We appreciate your comments about the subject of aspartame and will
share them with our management team.

In appreciation of your interest, under separate cover, I am sending a
value coupon to purchase any Alka-Seltzer Plus product. Please allow
business days for delivery. If I may be of further assistance, please
feel free
to contact me.

Bayer's response doesn't surprise me. They were defendants in a lawsuit regarding aspartame use in their products.

Since you wrote me back concerning the Aspartame in Alka-Seltzer Plus I found this website. WOW........I knew nothing about the law suit.
It is sad that the FDA and the media will go crazy when people are affected with contaminated lettuce or spinach but will not listen to suffering people who react to Aspartame and MSG. I can't eat out and have to read every label before ingesting everything. It isn't a pleasant way to live. People have seizures, fibromyalgia, fib of the heart, asthma, migraine headaches, mental problems, obesity are just a few problems that many have to endure because of slipping aspartame or MSG or an alias in their products. I'm a living example and even my little dog was hurt neurologically from the breeder putting cream of chicken soup in his mothers diet (MSG ingredient) while she was pregnant and nursing the puppies. Illinois University said it can't be proven that his neuro problem is from MSG but it most likely is the cause. So many animals suffer from seizures and most likely many times it probably stems from the fact that they put MSG or a form of MSG in the dog food to make the dog food lipsmakin good. I keep looking for someone who will listen...are you the one?

We have heard from vets who know about the effects of MSG on dogs and other pets. I think they are more informed than M.D.s.
