25 May 2018 - World Governments Are Ignoring Health Danger Of Monsanto/Bayer Merger With Fixations On Monopoly (Non-Medical) Concerns [Has an embedded video on the web page] [As if this merger were for some dimly lit reasons acceptable to the monopoly regulators, but the health implications of ending 8000 years of agriculture as we know it and the approval or non-approval of the World Health Organization are deemed somehow irrelevant, extraneous, not part of any regulatory discussions! This omission is monstrous, egregious, and despicable, and will lead to something worse than than the Arms Race! – Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum.]

23 May 2018 - The UK Food Guide On E Numbers: Aspartame - E951

18 May 2018 - Nonnutritive Sweeteners And Cardiometabolic Health: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis Of Randomized Controlled Trials And Prospective Cohort Studies [Note from article: "In the cohort studies, consumption of nonnutritive sweeteners was associated with increases in weight and waist circumference, and higher incidence of obesity, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular events." --Another point: However, consumption of nonnutritive sweeteners has been paradoxically associated with weight gain and incident obesity." Objective of review: "Our objective was to synthesize evidence addressing this question: Is routine consumption of nonnutritive sweeteners by adults and adolescents associated with adverse long-term cardiometabolic effects in RCTs and prospective cohort studies?" It is noted the bias with industry studies. There was no funding in this review. The report is long but has some valuable information. – Dr, Betty Martini, D. Hum.]

09 May 2018 - 'The Reality Is Sick, Overweight People With Tooth Decay' [This study and article is telling you what we've been telling you for years. While too much sugar may be fattening aspartame is much worse causing an obesity epidemic the world over along with diseases that can cause your death. The 1000 medical text, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" by the late world expert H. J. Roberts, M.D. is jammed full of everything from cancer and seizures to drug interaction and death. "While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills" by Dr. Woodrow Monte tells how the formaldehyde converted from the methanol embalms living tissue. (Trocho Study by Dr. M. Alemany). I was especially interested in the fact they say: “Researchers now have advanced technology at their fingertips to test the biochemical changes in the body at a much greater depth than previously possible.” I'm anxious to read the study. Here is the article and beneath it you will see another article about the same study. – Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum.]

11 Apr 2018 - Russian Woman Embalmed Alive By Formaldehyde~~Aspartame Metabolized By Millions As Formaldehyde By Masterplan?

10 Apr 2018 - Critic Of Artificial Sweeteners Pilloried By Industry-Backed Scientists [This is an excellent article that explains what we are up against. When I first started exposing aspartame in 1990 I thought all you needed were the facts, and didn't realize to what depths industry would go to keep a chemical poison on the market to cause mass poisoning of its users., When we tried to get aspartame banned in New Mexico the lobbyists, flacks, and front groups just flowed out of their swamp. These creatures would tell a lie even if the truth would do. Almost 30 years ago I didn't realize the FDA operated above the law to the extent it does. Even a top FDA scientist, Dr. Adrian Gross, let the Senate know that aspartame is illegally on the market because it violates the Delaney Amendment, as it causes cancer. In 2009 several scientists wrote to Obama saying they were broken and feared reprisals if they spoke out. I was astonished that companies like Calorie Control would operate to defend the manufacturer no matter what the facts showed. http://www.wnho.net/mh_aspartame_letter.htm Front Groups: Take the American Council on Science and Health. Michael F. Jacobson (Center for Science in the Public's Interest) said of ACSH, '"This organization promotes confusion among consumers about what is safe and what isn't.... ACSH is using a slick scientific veneer to obscure and deny truths that virtually everyone else agrees with." As Ralph Nader said of the organization: "ACSH is a consumer front organization for its business backers. It has seized the language and style of the existing consumer organizations, but its real purpose, you might say, is to glove the hand that feeds it." Then you have a research front group, ILSI. The Institute of Life Sciences. The "US Right To Know" people said: "But some independent scientists and food industry activists consider ILSI to be a front group aimed at advancing the interests of the food industry. It was founded by Coca-Cola scientific and regulatory affairs leader Alex Malaspina in 1978. ILSI has had a long and checkered relationship with the World "... As one aspartame victim who worked for ILSI told me, "You have to pay to play"! After all, even though Donald Rumsfeld forced approval of this poison the aspartame industry knew when it started causing problems independent researchers would start doing studies themselves and then it would be obvious to the world. Now if a university or study institute needs research funds they know where to go. Somebody always has their hand out. Dr. Ralph Walton did research for 60 Minutes and showed that 92% of all independent studies on aspartame showed the problems. Then if you eliminate 6 that the FDA had something to do with and one pro-industry summary, 100% of independent scientific peer reviewed studies show the problems that aspartame triggers or precipitates. Here is that research: http://www.lightenyourtoxicload.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Dr-Walton-survey-of-aspartame-studies.pdf The next question would have to be, if 100% of independent studies, peer reviewed, show aspartame not to be safe, how can 100% of industry funded studies show aspartame to be safe? The only way to get the facts is if you only consider independent studies that have no motive. Industry's original studies were the target of indictment for fraud, so if you had to cheat once why would anyone not consider them doing it again? There has even been a study on bias of industry studies: https://www.smh.com.au/technology/sydney-university-study-claims-industry-funding-leads-to-bias-in-artificial-sweetener-research-20160916-grhph6.html - Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum.]

10 Apr 2018 - Common Damaging Foods And Toxins [Excellent article by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. He spells it out well - aspartame is a brain toxin and causes cancer. It is illegally on the market because it causes cancer admitted by a chief scientist at the FDA who did the original investigation on aspartame, Dr. Adrian Gross. He told the Senate on 8/1/85 the FDA violated the law in approving aspartame and they should not have been able to even set an allowable daily intake because of the cancer. Repeating this to the FDA several times does no good. Dr. Joseph Thomas says they addressed this issue. Who did they address it to - an empty room? They refuse to answer. Usually it’s the guilty who take the fifth! – Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum.]

27 Mar 2018 - Health Canada's Step Backwards From Consumer Protection To Corporate Propaganda [Perhaps you remember when the FDA allowed 17 dairy products without labeling aspartame which is entirely against the law. Health Canada wants the removal of the name aspartame where it stands out to alert consumers, and if they get away with it the US and other countries will follow suit. Please not only read the entire article but please put it on your lists and forward it as far as you can to friends, relatives, associates, editors, journalists, and to relevant Facebook groups, and especially to friends in other nations. Much of the identification and background of those who are so disastrously advising Health Canada on this issue is not something the aspartame industry wants the general public to know. So, please, let's make this one go viral the world over. This may be our last chance to make a difference, given the possible coming merger of Bayer and Monsanto. – Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum.]

20 Mar 2018 - MALTA TIMES: Large Doses Of Artificial Sweeteners May Make You [Understand that while people who overindulge in sugar can gain weight, it’s obvious that aspartame has caused the obesity epidemic. Just take a look at the ones using aspartame. In doing research I've noted if people are thin they don't use it., As you know, it comes in many names, Canderel, E951, Neotame, AminoSweet, Advantame, etc. Studies from the beginning have shown aspartame makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight. Here is an article by Dr. Sandra Cabot, Mission Possible Australia: http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_makes_you_fatter.htm Notice at the end is a quote from the Senate over 30 years ago explaining that aspartame makes you crave carbohydrates and what we have is a product labeled diet that causes obesity., It doesn't take large doses at all, its cumulative. Furthermore it’s addictive. The methyl ester immediately becomes free methyl alcohol which is classified as a narcotic., and causes chronic methanol poison. This affects the dopamine system of the brain and causes the addiction. The fact that aspartame has been on the market triggering obesity for over three decades in my opinion is the reason 40% of the population is obese. It's just deceptive advertising. Secondly, now we have the writer trying to get the public to use artificial sweeteners when it’s the artificial sweeteners causing the obesity. So I would appreciate you forwarding this note to the proper authorities. Here is more information on Sucralose. You have to remember that sucralose was invented by an insecticide researcher. In fact, some years ago I found it on a web site under insecticide. It's particularly dangerous for diabetics to use. Simply read the Aspartame Resource Guide which also contains information on sucralose. http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_resource_guide.pdf You'll also see information on a safe sweetener made from organic foods, "Just Like Sugar". Please do be in touch with the studies and if there is other information you need on the subject please simply ask. – Dr. Betty Martini, D. Hum.]

06 Mar 2018 - Impending Epidemiological Disaster, If Health Canada Removes Labeling From Artificial Sweeteners [This article delineates a very serious problem brewing in Canada, if Health Canada goes forward with its plan to not label artificial sweeteners. Dr. Martini has done a superb and meticulous job in detailing the irrevocable and irreparable harm if this takes place. We can and must stop this corporate genocide! In the article are contact form URLs to write to the Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, and to Canada's Health Minister. Please take this seriously and write to them asking they avert this potential tragic situation. I had the privilege of editing this article and then sending it this morning to every single member of the Canadian Senate and the Canadian House of Commons. - Stephen Fox, Mission Possible New Mexico]

07 Feb 2018 - Treating Parkinson's Symptoms Without Removing The Causes ~~~ What A Cruel Joke! [This is in response to discussions going on now in the New Mexico Legislature about starting a treatment center on movement disorders but which fail to address the causes of Parkinson's. There are 250,000 cases there and not enough physicians to treat them. As Stephen Fox, Mission Possible New Mexico says, "It is senseless to treat symptoms without analyzing the causes and then removing them. There is quite a case based on biochemists, neurotoxicologists, and other physicians' insights showing aspartame's part in precipitating or triggering these neurodegenerative diseases. If you know anyone suffering from this disease, or Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS) or other related neurodegenerative malaises, please forward it to them plus to family, friends, and relevant Facebook groups. Thank you very much." This also goes into the battle Stephen Fox, Dr. Ken Stoller and myself had to fight when we tried to get aspartame banned in New Mexico some years ago. We welcome all comments. – Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum.]
