This is in response to the article entitled, Violent Behavior Linked To Nutritional Deficiencies, which may be found at:

I'm glad to see this brought out. Aspartame is a psycho drug. It triggers everything from bipolar or manic depression to schizophrenia, panic attacks, suicidal tendencies and paranoia. To make things worse aspartame interacts with all anti-depressants (Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic by H. J. Roberts, M.D.) One of the worst cases was that of Andrea Yates who drowned her 5 children. She was on Haldol and Diet Coke.

Now think of the additive and synergistic effect with MSG, another excitotoxin. Plus aspartame interacts with most drugs and vaccines because it damages the mitochondria. I'm glad this has been brought out too because when a company wants to hide something they put it under natural and artificial flavors. To add insult to injury aspartame is being added to drugs, many of which caused the problem in the first place. A Dr. Grubbs at a local hospital checked and told me aspartame is in all generic gastrointestinal drugs and, of course, it triggers gastrointestinal disease. Take Maxalt for headache, it has aspartame in it. What is #1 on the FDA list of 92 symptoms? Headache! Yes, we wrote them and they still refused to remove it. So a study was done which showed when you take Maxalt for headache it makes it worse. Still they refused to remove it. Some FDA scientists wrote in 2009 they were broken and wrote about corruption. They allow Big Pharma to put anything they want on the market and absolutely refuse to protect public health. Because aspartame has been proven to without a shadow of a doubt to cause cancer the bad news continue. FDA scientist, Dr. Adrian Gross told the Senate on 8/1/85 that aspartame violated the Delaney Amendment because it causes cancer, and therefore is against the law.

In Dr. Roberts medical text he discusses aspartame and crime. In "Sweet Remedy" they interview the ADD people, Feingold, who said prior to the approval of aspartame they hardly even used the term ADD. So the kids are medicated instead of educated. They give them Ritalin and what's in the generic form? Aspartame!

Dr. James Bowen told the FDA years ago aspartame was mass poisoning, and the largest study was done on the public. Yet if you explain what is happening to the public, the guinea pigs and lab rats, the Fatal Drugs Allowed folks call them anecdotes. Everywhere anecdotes are dying from aspartame from everything from seizures and cancer to neurodegenerative disease, strokes and cardiovascular disease. Aspartame causes sudden cardiac death: Neotame is not labeled and even put in pork. Now the FDA has approved Advantame.

Aspartame has been banned twice by the FDA, once right after it was approved in the l970's. FDA told them they could not market it. According to the builder of the Augusta aspartame factory they sold it anyway, and it poisoned him. Then the FDA created the task force to examine the studies. FDA Toxicologist and Task Force member, Dr Adrian Gross stated (Wilson l985): "They (G.D. Searle) lied and they didn't submit the real nature of their observations because had they done that it is more likely that a great number of these studies would have been rejected simply for adequacy. What Searle did, they took great pains to camouflage these shortcomings of the study. As I say filter and just present to the FDA what they wished the FDA to know and they did other terrible things for instance animals would develop tumors while they were under study. Well they would remove these tumors from the animals."

An FDA Toxicologist explained why their experiments were invalidated: "It is highly unlikely the FDA Investigative teams found all of the problems with G. D. Searle's studies. G. D. Searle seemed so intent on covering up their misconduct, that it is quite likely that they were able to hide many of the problems from the FDA."

Since the US Prosecutors Sam Skinner and William Conlon went to work for the defense team instead of prosecuting G. D. Searle for fraud, like they had been asked to do, the FDA set up a Board of Inquiry. They voted to revoke the petition for approval. That was the second time FDA banned it. Donald Rumsfeld went to work for G. D. Searle to get aspartame on the market, and the rest is history. Here is the actual Board of Inquiry Report, 50 pages: Read on, the actual 50 page document that revoked the petition for approval. Notice why they revoked the petition. The report says because it couldn't be proven safe and caused brain tumors.

Neurochemist Dr. Peter Nunn and Geoffrey Pilkington did a study at Kings College around 2002 having to do with aspartame and brain tumors. Here is the only statement we could find on the study: "When we exposed human brain tumor cells to nitrosated DKP the cells became more motile and their rate of proliferation was significantly elevated. While it is somewhat early to speculate, it is possible that the aspartame breakdown product may be capable of enhancing the rate of malignant progression of pre-existing (and possibly clinically silent, undiagnosed) tumours in the brain."

This agrees with Dr. John Olney who founded the field of neuroscience called Excitotoxicity and tried to prevent aspartame's approval. He was one of the most renowned neuroscientists in the world. So what else did Dr. Olney say: In l996 Dr. John Olney made world news over the Aspartame brain tumor association. Increasing Brain Tumor Rates: Is There a Link to Aspartame? J. Neuropath Exp Neurol, Vol 55, Nov & Dec issues. Dr. Olney discusses the aspartame molecule acquires mutagenic activity when nitrosated and this provides a clue to a possible mechanism by which aspartame could cause brain tumors. He says: "Nitrosation of aspartame or its diketopiperazine breakdown product could result in a nitrosourea-like molecule, and nitrosoureas are THE MOST EFFECTIVE AGENTS KNOWN for producing MALIGNANT BRAIN TUMORS in experimental animals. Some nitrosoureas have broad spectrum carcinogenicity and can induce cancer in both the CNS and several other organs, but other members of this family, particularly alkylated nitrosoureas are organo-specific for the CNS. These agents can act by a direct and relatively rapid mechanism to induce brain tumors, when administered systemically to adult rats. In addition, they are particularly potent in acting by a delayed mechanism involving in utero exposure of the fetus and resulting in a high incidence of malignant brain tumors which do not manifest until adulthood. The malignant tumors induced by either the direct or delayed mechanism are not typically of the childhood type (i.e. medulloblastoma) but rather are predominantly adult tumors (e. g. astrocytomas, glioblastomas, mixed gliomas, oligo-dendrogliomas). Thus, it may be significant that the recent surge in human brain tumor rates involved these various adult types of tumors, whereas childhood medulloblastoma was the singular tumor type that showed no increase."

The Task Force exposed the real facts on aspartame. In original studies aspartame triggered brain, mammary, uterine, ovarian, testicular, pancreatic and thyroid tumors. If you ask FDA today if aspartame causes cancer they will tell you no, even though it was their own chief FDA scientist, Dr. Adrian Gross who headed the aspartame investigation, who exposed it, and used the words "without a shadow of a doubt". The Task Force report was so damning that G. D. Searle filed suit to get it off the record. Of course we have it.

When I think of aspartame brain tumors I think of two of the Searle sons who defended aspartame to their friends and used it. Both of these two sons died of brain tumors. I also remember Kelli Motlock who had aspartame brain tumors and told me about others in her neighborhood who used aspartame and had them. That was when Monsanto owned it and she cried out one day, "I want to live, I want to live, I want to live, but if I die tell the world Monsanto killed me. To FDA she was only an anecdote but this young woman was only about 28 years old and had a full life ahead of her. Her little girl was raised without the mother she loved.

So we have a killer on the market, an obesity machine, not only causing cancer, neurological disease, seizures and blindness, but is a psych drug. From Psychiatrist Dr. Ralph Walton is this report on aspartame and psychiatric disorders. With having banned aspartame twice the FDA continues to allow aspartame on the market and approves more of it. When you discuss the political chicanery and that it was never proven safe, the FDA (Dr. Joseph Thomas) says that matter was addressed. When you ask who that was addressed to you get no answer.

Everything is a matter of public record unless they expunged it, like the executive order that forbid the FDA Commissioner from signing into law the revoked petition for approval. What power. The story is even in movies like "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World". Yesterday I read about comedian Rob Delaney losing his 2 year old son to a brain tumor. Is the family using aspartame?

It's decades late but the FDA should immediately ban this poison. No matter where you turn you see the horrors of aspartame disease. Dr. Woodrow Monte's title of his book says it all: "While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills". Read on this excellent article.
