Subject: Drug Research Under Question - Aspartame

Dear EFSA,

Note Senator Kennedy is quoted in this article as saying inaccurate science, sloppy science and fraudulent science are the greatest threats to the health of America. Remember it's the greatest threat to Europe as well, and the world. As I told you in the last email, you can't get aspartame to show safety. There is no humanely way.

The unfortunate thing is that many times aspartame or its components are unlabeled in natural or artificial flavors. Therefore, people get it without knowing it, and also in prescription drugs. In England and Scotland who have lost their supplements to EU Food Supplements Directive, they now come from industry, and even though you swallow many of them and don't need a sweetener aspartame is in them without their knowledge. Here is a letter from Jean Fairweather in the United Kingdom who almost went blind when she started the calcium, which in this case was chewable. She has lived to tell the story. stop this from happening: http://www.mpwhi.com/hhc-jfairweather.htm

Aspartame is nasty, the most filthy product, and if you ever saw it made you wouldn't dare give this to your children. Here is the way Dr. Deagle described aspartame as being made which is genetically engineered.

"Most people when asked how Aspartame is made do not have the first step of understanding. While an E.R. doctor and primary care physician in Augusta, GA in 1987 and 1988, I was told a number of interesting facts about the adjacent Aspartame factory. Bacteria with genes inserted generate a sludge which is centrifuged to remove the aspartame and many hundreds of contaminant organic and amino acids are present. We were told not to report illness or worker's compensation issues for fear of being fired by the hospital, now the Augusta Regional Medical Center. Many of their employees presented with psychiatric, neuropathy conditions, chronic fatigue and organic cases of loss of cognitive function. This powder from the dried sludge was then transported for packaging in factories elsewhere in the US, before sale as Equal and now the myriad of names of this neurotoxin." Bill Deagle, M.D

Now, get angry, read how aspartame was approved in England: http://www.mpwhi.com/how_aspartame_got_approved_in_england.htm

Here is our government, Department of Health and Human Services, and NIH, giving you a list of studies for only 4 years showing adverse reactions. This is 167 citations. I guarantee even though study after study after study shows aspartame to be a dangerous poison, if Ajinomoto sponsored number 168 be assured they would find a way to prove it safe. That's why I say investigate, investigate, investigate. This is genocide in 100 countries of the world, and passed on through the mother to future generations.http://www.mpwhi.com/adverse_effects_of_aspartame.htm

Here is a report I had Food Standards send you but I just want to be sure you have it: http://www.mpwhi.com/review_and_ban_aspartame.htm

Please note everything I write you is on web, and is also put on 6 Mission Possible lists to operations in over 39 nations, to doctors all over the world, organizations, media and many, many, many lists on the Internet. I say this because of the exclusions in the last review. I hope this time nothing will be excluded because the world has a copy! That includes Parliament. They publish in magazines and forward it on. While you're reading this in England and Brussels, they are also reading it in Russia, Norway, Sweden, Japan, South Africa, Mexico, France, Scotland, Indonesia, etc, etc. -- around the world.

Review, investigate and ban this deadly, deadly poison that has cost the lives of millions and maimed and injured helpless children around the world. Regulations by Food Standards are not enforced. When I lectured in England I used a prop I saw a toddler drinking called 330, Bubbleee. What's in it? Aspartame, acesulfame potassium (caused cancer and leukemia in original studies), saccharin, sodium benzoate and brilliant blue dye, a carcinogen. You think they were trying to avoid sugar? No, sugar is in it too. What's missing? Food is missing. This is a chemical cocktail and you wonder why kids have ADD, ADHD, autistic, etc. The regulations by Food Standards say no artificial sweeteners for children 3 and under. Then why are they sold. That's why it has to be banned as well.

What is aspartame doing to children in schools in Europe? Here is a testimony:
December 26, 2006

His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales
St James's Palace
London SW1A 1BS, UK

Your Royal Highness:

I'm writing again to Your Royal Highness about aspartame.
[Canderel/NutraSweet/Equal/E951] Forty-seven MPs have signed to have it banned.

From Yorkshire comes this vivid example of the damage this addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogen does to the brains of children. Specifically Matthew Hobson, a victimized English boy.

Subject: Accused Of Drug Use By School - Aspartame Allergic Reaction

Aspartame ruined my relationship with my family and I wasn't trusted at school, now I hate them for what they put me through. The school decided that sugar soft drinks were bad for the students health so decided to remove all but the diet products from the cafeteria, I personally enjoy a sugar infused cola that has a taste diet drinks lack, they taste too artificial.

I started to drink the diet cola, I had no bad effects for a couple of days. Then by the next week, half an hour after lunch I would get severe itching in my legs and arms, so much so that it left blood marks in scratch lines across my limbs, I tried so hard not to start scratching as I couldn't stop them for about an hour if I started.

To make matters worse I would also slur my speech, still unaware of what was going on. The second week my parents were called in and I was told that I would be under supervision at all times in school and my parents were not going to let me leave the house, they proceed to rip apart my room and have me sleep on the floor in their room.

Why? I was being accused of using Crystal Meth !!! I hope you can even imagine how I felt about all this, I huddled up in a corner crying at one point wishing I wasn't born. I spent lunch in the corner of the staff room with a bag of crisps and my diet coke, again as soon as I left the room for lessons I itched like crazy. I have to miss out some details here because they upset me so much.

After being drug tested for a couple of days, police interrogating me, asking me who the dealer was and referring me to a shrink which I saw for another week, all this was going on, my life was so bad I just wanted to die.

This is where I met someone I will never forget, The Janitor. He saw me and said "are you alright there son"? I just started crying, so he took me to the supply room, sat me on a box and I poured out my heart to him, I clicked the ring pull on my drink and took a large gulp, He just stared at the can for what seemed like forever.

He snatched it off me, grabbed my shirt and pulled me up to the Headmasters office, he kicked in the door and started screaming at the headmaster. I was all over the place I felt so dizzy, emotional, tired and out of it and I still didn't really know what the hell was going on. He smashed down the can and the diet coke sprayed all over the Head's desk.

I caught bits of the conversation, - "It's the xxxx in these drinks - It doesn't take a genius to work that out for God's sake - Don't you know what's in this." From here on he started on about his daughter having PKU and aspartame, he finished with reminding the head in front of about 20 staff surrounding outside the door where i was now stood, that the school in fact was responsible for my problems by removing sugar drinks from the cafeteria and was liable, and should expect to be sued.

He calmed down came out and walked me outside, he gave me his phone to ring my parents who then came to the school. The rest is history!!! I would like to thank Mark Winslow, the Janitor who actually saved my life, God knows what I would have done if he hadn't stepped in. We did gain a settlement from the school and gave a generous sum to Mark as he did lose his job and was unemployed for a couple of weeks. He and his family now regularly meet up with us in the summer for BBQ's and we couldn't ask for better friends.

I hope my experience is of benefit to others, I think my reaction must have been very severe but if it can do that to you then it shouldn't be in our foods. Matthew Hobson.

When you visited Florida you dined with Dr. H. J. Roberts and his wife, Carol, who gave The Princess of Wales the key to the city of West Palm Beach. Dr. Roberts is the world expert on aspartame, declared it a global plague and published the 1038 page medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, which he dedicated to me. I'm enclosing a copy of the prestigious Ecologist with a 17 page feature on it, and I believe you already have the aspartame documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World. In it attorney James Turner explains how Rumsfeld got it approved after the FDA said no. As late as 1995 FDA published a list of 92 reactions to aspartame from over 10,000 volunteered complaints. Aspartame can precipitate diabetes, aggravate and simulate diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, destroy the optic nerve, cause diabetic convulsions, and interacts with insulin. It also makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight.

The Trocho Study shows that the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol accumulates in the cells and damages DNA, with most toxicity in the liver, but substantial amounts in the fat cells, kidneys, brain and retina. Last month I visited a researcher in Barcelona who was threatened by the NutraSweet Company for exposing the pre-embalming by aspartame.

Schools mistakenly advocate diet drinks exclusively. Matthew's case is no doubt repeated by thousands of innocent children in UK schools. Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., explains that reactions to aspartame are not allergic but toxic like arsenic and cyanide. I'm inclosing his lecture on aspartame.

This isn't a rare case. Dr. Baret called me from the Dominican Republic. He changed the diet of 360 small children from milk to aspartame juice and almost all of them responded with abnormal behavior, cognitive problems. Knowing this was the only change he had made he re-searched aspartame and called me. I had him remove the toxin from their diet and four days later all the children returned to normal. It is clear that if this insane practice is not stopped Matthew's case will become the norm.

Because of the horror of this decision several authorities have written new reports on the effects of aspartame on the brains of the unborn and children. They're on http://www.wnho.net/report_on_aspartame_and_children.htm We email these 42 pages of articles to schools, pediatricians and OB-GYN the world over. Aspartame is a teratogen and causes birth defects and mental retardation. If the child survives and it damages the thymus gland it can have autoimmune problems all the days of his life and the DNA is probably damaged generations to come. It lowers IQ and triggers psychiatric and behavioral problems, and also interacts with medications. So no drug is safe for an aspartame consumer. The Italian Ramazzini Study has confirmed what FDA knew from the beginning, that aspartame is a multipotential carcinogen. This is a foremost European research center.

The tale of how aspartame got approved in England may be unknown to Your Royal Highness: G. D. Searle Co knew they couldn't get it in other countries if it was known our FDA tried to have them indicted for fraud. They made a deal with a Professor Paul Turner in the agency there who approved aspartame without anyone knowing. No studies were ever done in the UK. Parliament discovered it, and their dismay was reported in The Guardian. Nevertheless, approval wasn't rescinded. Today there are efforts worldwide to recall aspartame. I'm enclosing my just released story in Health Freedom News which magazine goes to all Congressmen.

Robin Goodwin's Falkland Island heartrending story is attached. His wife had an aspartame brain tumor and his daughter suffered seizures daily for 18 years until they learned aspartame caused them.

Your Royal Highness, I ask you to save many lives in the UK by removing aspartame and the aspartame manufacturers. I know you are against genetic engineering. This is a GM product. I look forward to your reply and help for the people of England.

Dr. James Bowen began slurring his words and was thought to either be on alcohol or drugs. He was admitted to a mental hospital but in the hospital he was no longer on aspartame and the symptoms disappeared. He wrote:

I started using Aspartame in April 1983, when the Aspartame Lo Cal Kool Aid was first marketed. In 2 days it gave me a toxic cardiomyopathy so severe I had to then stop swimming. I then immediately lost my balance, so also had to immediately also stop going off the diving board. Deep chemical depression followed, terminating in Lou Gehrig's disease. In just six weeks of use it aged me thirty years! When I stopped using it I had many severe withdrawal symptoms, and was then diagnosed as "Bulbar Palsy."

MY RN wife was screaming at me: "Jim get off the Aspartame! It is killing you!" (I was so completely brain washed by Aspartame, that I could not even believe her!

Aspartame is very highly crafted poison, cleverly combining about ten different poisons, including : 1. phenylalanine isolate poisoning. (Not all alike with dietary sources!), 2. The methyl ester-formaldehyde-formic acid- carbon monoxide toxic axis. 3. Methylated aspartic acid , (An extreme excitotoxin, implemented in many and vast brain damages! Including the common neural degenerative diseases!) 4. Diketopiperazine poisoning: Which the first toxicity studies (at 1/1000 the FDA legally requisite test dosage for only sixty days,) caused the highest incidence of brain tumor in rats that any chemical ever tested at any dosage ever caused. (The first 6 months of Aspartame soft drinks, saw a 10% increase in USA human brain cancers rates, and a 30% jump of our diabetes occurrence rate!)

When the FDA first refused licensure for Aspartame they did so, because it rapidly chelates poisonous metals out of containers and then carries them on in a totally absorbable condition, it couldn't be proven safe and triggered brain tumors. It also triggered many other types of tumors from mammary to testicular. It should be noted that Pepsi and Coke delivery drivers certify that sugar pops never damage their cans, while Aspartame beverages frequently do.)

The problem has always been the influence of industry. They can get anything peer reviewed. Cynthia Crossen, a reporter and editor at the Wall Street Journal, wrote the book: The Tainted Truth: The Manipulation of Fact in America. In Tainted Truth, author Cynthia Crossen devastates the illusion of a knowable world based on the best fact available. By unmasking the process used behind the scenes to influence, control and even kill such malleable products as "fact" and "truth", Ms Crossen illustrates convincingly that much of what we "know" is either wrong or highly questionable. While most discount advertisers' claims, we tend to take more seriously studies, surveys and polls from Time magazine, the Washington Post or the Journal of the American Medication Association. It is the prostitution of data in these and other mainstream media that concerns Ms. Crossen.

The road to hell she says was paved with the flood of corporate research dollars that eagerly filled gaps left by slashed government research funding. In 1981, industry contributed $292 million to colleges and universities for research; by 1991 that figure had burgeoned to over $2.1 billion. The noted critic A.J. Liebing once acidly observed that "Freedom of the press belongs only to those who own one."

So we fight the influence of aspartame manufacturers who have bottomless checkbooks and their own industry research front group, ILSI. I give you all this information so you will understand that this time we expect a review of truth and fact, devoid of aspartame manufacturers influence like last time. If nothing else have mercy on the children and babies and the Mathew Hobsons!
