A new study has shown once again aspartame can precipitate strokes and dementia Here again: on aspartame causing heart attacks. Fox News published the story also: "Coca Killer: Just one Diet Coke or Pepsi Max a day can triple the risk of a deadly stroke and dementia, researchers claim." Aspartame and heart problems have been discussed for Years.. Here is one published by aspartame world expert, the late Dr. H. J. Roberts who published a 1000 page medical text: "Aspartame Disease: An ignored Epidemic" -- Note also the one by neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock.

It was Dr. Blaylock, (author of "Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills" -( ) who wrote the Aspartame Pilot Alert. This also includes testimony to Congress by pilots:

Keep in mind these problems have been known for years. Here is the 1995 FDA report showing strokes and the change of mood is so common its number 3 on this list. Memory loss is #9. An informant said a study done by the National Soft Drink Assn (now American Beverage) said a ten year study showed birth defects, blindness and Alzheimer's.

Dr. David Kessler, former FDA Commissioner said only about 1% even report serious problems. This reminds me of when he said if aspartame symptoms went down they would grant blanket approval of aspartame. Even G. D. Searle admitted it couldn't be used for everything. Dr. H. J. Roberts said there was no way for the aspartame symptoms to go down unless they stopped taking them and threw some away. That's exactly what happened. Victim after victim told me the FDA refused to take their complaint. Then the FDA said they had to change their bookkeeping system requiring some aspartame complaints to be thrown away! In Congress, Senate, it was discussed that the FDA was so overrun with aspartame complains they were referring them to the AIDS Hotline!!


Captain Fred Fox who flew for American Airlines for 35 years is our representative for Aviation Safety. He has atrial fibrillation because of the toxin. He also released the names of a half a dozen other pilots who bit the dust because of aspartame, one in flight drinking a diet pop. The other pilot landed the plane so they could remove the body. Today planes are equipped with defibrillators. The aspartame cardiac conditions have gotten so bad they now sell defibrillators over the counter. Captain Fox just recently called about another pilot who dropped dead on American.

He was talking about two pilots today, One who died in October 2015, at the controls, of a heart attack, The pilot was Michael Johnston, age 57 from Utah - He was also talking about William "Mike" Grubb. This happened a couple of weeks ago.

There was also United Captain Henry Sullivan 63 of Humble, Texas who also died after a heart attack. This was updated in December 9/27/2013. The United Flight 1063 was diverted to Boise, Idaho.

FDA AND FAA: "Flying Safety of the US Air Force

How often we've heard the saying - "your life is in the hands of the pilot"! My aunt was shaking when she flew from California to Atlanta. She kept saying, 'the pilot was drunk and the plane was going up and down' I explained there is free methyl alcohol in aspartame and no doubt the pilot was drinking a diet drink. Not exactly what pilots should be allowed to use. Pilots also have to have good vision and the methanol in aspartame blinds. . ("While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills", by Dr.. Woodrow Monte.) Some consumers have even gotten DUI's because of the methanol in aspartame.

Back in the late 1980's Barbara Mullarkey, an anti-aspartame journalist wrote American Airlines over the problem and was told: "Leave the flying to us!" If American had removed diet drinks and other aspartame products consider how many pilots would still be alive today. An immediate investigation should begin on what these recent pilots who died were consuming. I spoke to the wife if one American pilot who died in flight some years ago and she said American refused to let her see the autopsy. He was drinking a diet drink in flight according to Captain Fox. She referred me to another wife of a US Air Force pilot whose husband used diet pop and died in flight of a heart attack.

The position of the FAA is that if it is approved by the FDA (Fatal Drugs Allowed folks) they can't do anything about it. The position of the FDA is that they are broken as several FDA scientists wrote OBAMA in 2009. Translation: FDA is now just an extension of Big Pharma and get more than 50% of their funding from their friend and benefactor, At least the FAA on the side do alert some pilots, "Flying Safety" the magazine of the US Air Force once wrote a warning for the pilots about aspartame. Then they retracted the warning with wording that obviously not written by the Air Force. Statements like "aspartame is just living and breathing" is not the way the U S Air Force writes. In fact, what aspartame is more in keeping with not breathing and dying. Best said by Dr. M. Alemany who reported "Aspartame will kill 200 million people!" They used a summary on the CDC investigation which contradicted the original study, so I sent Flying Safety the entire study showing the real facts like seizures, myocardial infarction, blindness, sudden death and behavioral problems. Then they told me the Pentagon said if I called again to contact them directly. As soon as I mentioned that aspartame was listed with the pentagon in an inventory of prospective biochemical warfare weapons submitted to Congress they hung up and removed the recording off that phone.

Flying Safety in seeing the entire CDC report admitted what they had written was in error but refused to retract the retraction leading pilots to believe aspartame is safe. So my husband and I went to New Mexico to the Air Force Base and delivered pilot packets to the pilots.


Mission Possible Aviation was founded years ago when Pilot Cliff Evans said, "Dumb I'm not but I couldn't make a decision on aspartame and crashed my plane into a tree. We need to alert the pilots." Another pilot called me who had been on TV. He said he had an aspartame blackout in Alaska and woke up just in time to pull up before he hit the water. Another pilot I gave information to said his union had sent this out to all their pilots and that was a help.

You will note that in Dr. Blaylock's paper, URL above, he says: "I have reviewed reports from airline and private pilots concerning effects of aspartame on various physiological systems. Several of these are related to the nervous system, which puts this in a category of great concern to the pilot a well a general public. The more common complaints include disorientation, difficulty thinking and concentrating, visual blurring or even monocular blindness, seizures and heart failure. It is well known that the ingredients in aspartame, as well as its breakdown products, have deleterious effects on the nervous system and retina."

PLANE ACCIDENTS AND NEAR ACCIDENTS: PILOTS AND AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS (from "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" by the late Dr. H. J. Roberts, page 790

"Pilots, emergency medical services (EMS) helicopter pilots, and air traffic controllers must remain alert. To this end, many consume large amounts of coffee, tea and cola beverages. Most also seek to avoid sugar because they are health conscious and therefore tend to use aspartame products.

"Pilots and air traffic controllers have experienced confusion, behavioral changes and even convulsions while consuming aspartame. Many volunteered their relevance to the increasing number of collisions and near-collisions in the sky and at major airports.

"Wurtman (1987) reported epilepsy in a 35 year old test pilot who consumed six liters of an aspartame beverage daily following his mid-day jog.

"A pilot experienced in acrobatics would become temporarily disoriented "every time I was drinking a diet soda or chewing gum with aspartame in it,"

"Several commercial pilots made reference to peers who allegedly became incapacitated or lost their licenses because of aspartame reactions. An Airline pilot offered this answer to the question in the survey questionnaire concerning other friends with aspartame-related problems: "One who was a pilot lost his job due to ruined eyesight,"

"The air industry has been baffled by unexplained and sometimes totally disabling complains of flight att4ndants, such as headache, dizziness, nausea and tremors. The possible role of noxious fumes and other substances relating to hydraulic fluids, air ventilation systems and ozone have been analyzed, with but little effect when upgraded. Inasmuch as flight attendants tend to be health - and weight - conscious, they are inclined to drink diet sodas, especially if available at no cost."

Dr. Roberts told me one day he was talking to someone in Air Traffic Control drinking a Diet Coke and he couldn't remember his name or where he was. One day I attended a physician's conference with Dr. Roberts, and in a neurology workshop this question was asked by the professor: "Can someone tell me, even if off the wall why so many people are having seizures for no reason at all? Dr. Roberts asked me to explain it to him. I went into quite a bit of detail and explained how the phenylalanine lowers the seizure threshold. the professor said, "but isn't that in rare cases of Phenylketonuria?" Again I explained. Then a physician raised his hand and said, "Professor, I'm a physician and a pilot. I'm afraid she is right. I have a friend who flies commercially, drinking diet drinks and having seizures and we have to report him,"

Dr. Roberts mentions in his book that concerned consumer groups regard flights by pilots who consume aspartame products as a form of Russian Roulette for both the passengers and crew. He gives many cases including: "A concerned captain of large commercial plane called to inform me about his reaction to aspartame as perceptible deterioration in flying skills. He also had become depressed and experienced unaccustomed crying spells. Dramatic improvement occurred after stopping aspartame with apparent normalization of his physical and psychological health.

"The senior pilot then amplified his reason for calling; the serious implications of comparable reactions he had observed in colleagues consuming large amounts of aspartame products. They were most evident during lengthy delays before departure and landing,"

Another case of Dr. Roberts is the epitome of what most experience: He is quoting a member of the U.S. Air Force who had served from April 1992 to August 1996. He wrote: "Late in my service time, I experienced some strange illnesses that I could not explain, nor could the military doctors. I had a major and sudden onset of hearing loss, dizziness, numbness in my hands, blurry vision, tiredness, muscle and joint aches, blood pressure variation, stress/anger and other symptoms," It should be noted that aspartame is a psycho drug that interacts with anti-depressants.

When I board a plane I give both pilots packets but I also give packets to the crew. You would be surprised how many of the ladies thought they were infertile, suffered with headaches, insomnia, joint pain, etc. Some had lost their babies Aspartame is an endocrine disruption drug, stimulates prolactin, changes the menses and causes infertility. If you get off aspartame and get pregnant, and then get back on it, it’s an abortifacient. If your baby survives its a teratogen causing birth defects. Read the last chapter of Dr. Woodrow Monte's book, "While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills" on line on aspartame and autism. Also according to one of Dr. Morando Soffritti who did three studies on aspartame if a baby survives when a woman is using aspartame they can grow up to cancer,

Aspartame has many names like Equal, NutraSweet, E951, AminoSweet, Neotame, Canderel, Benevia. Many times its in natural favors and it’s not labeled in 13 dairy products that we know about. Dr. Ralph Walton, psychiatrist, told me gum has aspartame in it even if it’s not labeled. Dr. Walton did a study on aspartame not even using the daily allowable amount, the administrator got a retinal detachment and lost the sight in his eye. Another subject got conjunctival bleeding. Some reported they were being poisoned. The study was stopped.

Consider what aspartame does to the pilot. Now consider what this can do to the fetus and children, Now the Health Minister in Israel want to remove all sugar out of schools and replace it with aspartame. This must be stopped before it destroys the brains of children. The Health Minister in Israel needs to be written by thousands. This has to be stopped. Dr. Bill Deagle who has been a civil aviation examiner and personally examined pilots who suffered dangerous absence seizures, blackout and dangerous lack of judgment. He identifies aspartame as a Mind Tenderizer, as ELF Mind control technologies make it illogical for the insane use of Aspartame in injectable vaccines and many thousands of already sweet food and medicine products, Since aspartame damages the mitochondria or powerhouse of the cell it interacts with drugs, and vaccines. Today aspartame is added to generic gastrointestinal drugs. Aspartame not only triggers gastrointestinal problems in the first place they insanely add it to the drugs that treat the problem. Even I who was educating physicians was given generic drugs for Zofran and Raglan and stopped breathing three times.

How do you protect the public when the very agencies there for your protection give its loyalties to the poisoners instead of the public. Stephen Fox, Mission Possible New Mexico, said yesterday: "In terms of global efforts to protect consumers, it is fortuitously clear that in California above all other jurisdictions, we see the most advanced cutting edge of consumer protection.”

"The California Carcinogen Identification Commission moved forward with labeling glyphosphate/Roundup by Monsanto as both a carcinogen and as causing birth defects, and then Monsanto went to court in California to challenge this labeling as "unconstitutional." Monsanto's lame legal argument, that the research to establish carcinogenicity, was done in France under the auspices of the World Health Organization, as therefore was suspect and needed to be undermined as a causal basis for the CIC's decision. This was promptly rejected by a Fresno County District Judge and the labeling is moving forward.

"This is vital and relevant because the same Carcinogen Commission is moving forward with similar labeling efforts for products containing aspartame, with which the evidence is even more compelling and relies on the FDA's own records of consumer complaints and the ghastly process of approval by political methods used by Donald Rumsfeld back in 1981 to force aspartame's FDA approval.

In terms of aspartame victims, beyond the ones who are already dead and buried (or cremated_, I consider Diane Fleming to be the ultimate victim of aspartame poisoning. Her husband Charles used to mix exercise drinks with aspartame containing products, and sometimes bourbon. He died of methanol poisoning, quite predictably, really, with that kind of chemical cocktail, but his wife Diane was charged with murder, prosecuted, convicted, and now sits in the Women's Prison in Troy, Virginia, the most tragic victim of this horrible and deadly neurotoxic carcinogen."

The insanity continues. The FDA with full knowledge of the toxicity of aspartame and even years ago tried to have the manufacturer, G. D. Searle indicted for fraud has now approved Advantame, another aspartame product. Unfortunately both US Prosecutors hired on with the defense team with the original aspartame case and the statute of limitations expired. Be sure to see the aspartame documentary: "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World" and Captain Fred Fox is in "Sweet Remedy",

In closing I dedicate this poem to pilots who suddenly died because airlines with full knowledge allowed them and their crew to consume a literal chemical poisoning.


Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome aboard
American Roulette Flight 504
Thanks for betting your lives with us
Some safety tips I must discuss

As you know you may not smoke
So we're serving Diet Coke
Or Diet Pepsi, take your pick
Says FDA: they'll make you sick

Ten thousand complaints on aspartame
They posted the list, and then, insane
They made it a general sweet'ner
Could travesty be more completener?

Cries FDA, "It's healthful as rain!"
What matter citizens who complain
Ignore that tumor in your brain
And birth defects from aspartame

It vends at eighty dollars a pound
Boundless booty Ajinomoto found
Who cares if you go blind
Or leave your brains behind

Mind confusion, Panic attacks
Hypertension, yes Heart attacks
We're happy you're on this airplane thing
See the pilot dancing on the wing?

His name is Captain Billy Keno
Nonstop service Phoenix to Reno
Seattle? anyplace way out there
If he can find it from the air

Fourteen pilot magazines, all
Name vertigo, seizures grand ma
l gave numerous deadly incidents
From NutraSweet, Equal, sugarless mints

Poison potion, our bosses knew
Their mortal gamble is me and you
It's the political thing to do
What care for safety, you, or crew?

Risking hundred million dollar planes
On lethal Drug, dissolver of brains
Refusing to ken that the captains died
