Subject: The Aspartame Calamity in Canada

To the Honorable Jane Philpott:

I send you this letter because I am hoping you will become part of the solution and not part of the problem in this matter of labeling food additives, a calamitous step apparently being taken by your successor as Health Minister.

You perhaps already have seen my article on Health Canada wanting to no longer label aspartame (a deadly chemical poison, once listed by the Pentagon in an inventory of prospective biochemical warfare weapons submitted to Congress), Neotame (already not labeled), and acesulfame potassium (caused cancer and leukemia in original studies). This was mailed to your Parliament address on this past Monday.

Here it is again, in case you want to refer to specifics.

Also: Impending Epidemiological Disaster, If Health Canada Removes Labeling from Artificial Sweeteners

Everything is a matter of public record.

I have been taking the case histories of the sick and dying from aspartame for 28 years, and working with world experts, particularly physicians who have been treating victims of aspartame poisoning. The 1000 page medical text, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" by the late H. J. Roberts, M.D. is dedicated to me.

In the 80 minute documentary: "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World" you will see some of the medical experts and hear how Donald Rumsfeld got aspartame marketed after the FDA had tried to have the manufacturer indicted for fraud and revoked the petition for approval.

Aspartame was never approved as safe by the FDA. In fact, the FDA banned it twice, first in 1974 when they researched the studies and found the fraud and how many proved it dangerous. They told G. D. Searle they could not market it. After both US Prosecutors, Sam Skinner and William Conlon went to work for the defense team instead of indicting Searle and let the statute of limitations expire, FDA set up a Board of Inquiry, and then revoked the petition for approval because they said aspartame had triggered brain tumors and couldn't be proven safe.

What is the difference between the FDA's bans of aspartame and Rumsfeld's political chicanery getting it on the market? The FDA's bans showed aspartame could not be proven safe and fraud was involved. Rumsfeld, on the other hand, used politics, even getting the President of the US, Ronald Reagan, to write an executive order making the FDA powerless to sign the revoked petition for approval into law and firing the FDA Commissioner who would have signed the document.

Rumsfeld and Reagan then used one of Rumsfeld's cohorts at the Defense Department, Arthur Hull Hayes, to be appointed as FDA Commissioner and over-rule the Board of Inquiry. Hayes resigned in 1983 while the Department of Health and Human Services was investigating his acceptance of gratuities, including free rides aboard General Foods jet. Hayes' reward for this deadly deal was accepting a position as senior medical advisor to a Searle public relations firm, Burston Marsteller. As a consultant Hayes was paid $1000.00 a day on a ten year contract. One article about Hayes says he never was at Burston Marsteller for more than 15 days.

Rumsfeld got his reward when G. D. Searle was sold to Monsanto. It was 12 million dollars! I guess that's the going rate for mass poisoning the world. Here is where it came from:

Aspartame was rubberstamped around the world, despite almost 100% of independent peer reviewed studies showing the dangers.

With what we know today after several medical texts were produced by the experts is that we are dealing with a global epidemic of aspartame disease, or Rumsfeld's Plague, as it is well known. For decades we have gotten consumers to avoid it but if unlabeled people may be dropping in the streets because it is well known for causing neurodegenerative diseases, cancers, drug interactions, cardiovascular problems, obesity, birth defects, seizures, strokes, sudden cardiac death, blindness and on and on.

It's a chemical hypersensitization agent, so many people carry epi-pens so if they accidently get some they can prevent going into anaphylactic shock. Unlabeled aspartame can cause millions of deaths. The Trocho Study shows the formaldehyde converted from the methanol embalms living tissue and damages DNA. They will definitely be partially embalmed when they arrive for burial.

What has happened because of aspartame's presence on the market? This is found on the back page of Dr. Woodrow Monte's medical text, "While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills":

"The introduction of aspartame into the food supply of the United States began in the summer of 1981. Since that time, the incidence of Alzheimer's deaths has increased 100fold (10,000%). Autism has, with no explanation, increased 25 times (2500%). Autoimmune diseases have reached epidemic proportions, with Lupus (SLE) up 300%, and Multiple Sclerosis, Type II Diabetes and Rheumatoid Arthritis headed out of control. Cancers, the hallmark of formaldehyde exposure, have exploded. Skin cancer has shot up over 400%, liver cancer has tripled, kidney cancer has doubled, and breast cancer is up 50%. The list goes on....."

Further, Dr. Monte wrote this about his book: this "explains to the average person the fascinating process by which methanol, a poison hidden in aspartame and some other foods, is converted to formaldehyde at the very locations in the human body where these diseases originate, revealing, for the first time, the exact details of the probable cause of each. It is a cautionary tale of the legacy of the danger of a poisonous food additive and the failure of a government corrupted by greed, to safeguard the health and welfare of its people."

The first thing that needs to be done in Canada is to ban it, not just reinstate the labeling. Also, some regulations should be available to stop import of it into Canada. Anyone in Health Canada who tries to keep it on the market should be prosecuted. They have been told for years that aspartame is a poison, and it's all a matter of record. The other sweeteners are discussed in my article.
