Aspartame Press Conference, Hawaii State Capital, May 1, 2008

by Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum Thursday, May. 01, 2008 at 2:10 AM 770 242-2599 9270 River Club Parkway, Duluth, Georgia 30097

For all press and professionals in Honolulua, Bill Deagle, M.D. has come 6000 miles from Nova Scotia to discuss the aspartame issue at the Hawaii State Capital.


Subject: Aspartame Press Conference, Hawaii State Capitol, May 1, 11:00

to Noon, Bill Deagle, M.D. ;

Novia Scotia's renowned Dr. Bill Deagle is coming 6,000 miles to hold a press conference in the State Capitol on May 1st at 11:00 AM on an issue of serious importance to all citizens, the indiscriminate use of a deadly chemical in our foods, drinks and even chewing gum. That toxin is aspartame/NutraSweet/Equal and the conference will be in room 423 of the Capitol. All citizens, health professionals, aspartame victims and the press are invited.

Two bills to ban aspartame have been considered in legislative committees but have been deferred.

Public outcry over these put-offs prompted both Rep Josh Green, M.D. and Senator Suzanne Chun Oakland, legislators deeply concerned for the health of Hawaiians, to sponsor separate resolutions requesting an open and impartial investigation of the history and chemistry of aspartame, which was identified as "multi-potential carcinogen" in a 3-year study involving 1,800 animals. The end result was to ban this chemical poison from Hawaii.

For over a decade the Food & Drug Administration refused to approve aspartame because it produces brain tumors and many other serious disabilities. In 1995 FDA published a list of 92 aspartame related symptoms accumulated from over 10,000 volunteered consumer complaints. Today FDA denies such a list ever existed. This cover-up was manipulated by Don Rumsfeld who once ran G.D. Searle, the producer of NutraSweet.

Rep. Green's resolution passed in the first committee, but a second hearing wasn't set up. Senator David Ige, Chair of the Senate Health Committee believed it was some kind of hoax. Voluminous references, federal documents and physician's testimony were provided to Sen. Ige, who nevertheless with full knowledge of the evidence, refused to set up the committee meeting on the Senate Resolution repeatedly ignoring emails and phone calls.

The opportunity to save the people of Hawaii from this deadly addictive neurotoxic carcinogenic drug alarmed the corporations and their lobbyists who effectively fought to strangle any legislative action.

Aspartame consistently triggers diabetes, obesity, suicidal tendencies, male sexual dysfunction and a host of other injuries by releasing formaldehyde, formic acid, methyl alcohol, diketopiperazine and other

breakdown poisons into consumers.

Each member of the Senate and House received a documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, Rep Green was sent the 1,038 page medical text Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic,, by H. J. Roberts, M.D, who was named the Best Doctor in the US by a medical journal in 1984. Additional testimony by Doctors Ralph Walton and Russell Blaylock, M..D. ( were also provided legislators.

There was lifesaving opportunity to ban this chemical poison from the beautiful Hawaiian Islands but legislators dropped the ball. See my letter to Senator David Ige below the press release by Dr.Deagle.

Don't miss this important press conference by Dr. Deagle on this Eugenics Holocaust!

Aspartame Hawaiian Eugenics Holocaust

Press Release US Hawaiian State Capitol

May 1st 2008


Aspartame was approved by deception thought the USA FDA Food and Drug

Administration. Through lies and lobbying has now poisoned 6000+

foods and spread to 90 countries. The complex range of symptoms to

serious disease collectively are known as Rumsfeld Plague. As US

Cabinet minister Rumsfeld used his connections approved by the FDA

with stealth against scientific evidence of human toxicity.

Made by genes inserted into bacteria in Aiken, South Carolina and now

by Ajinomoto Inc. of Japan on license from Monsanto Corporation of

America, sludge is centrifuged to separate the dipeptide amino acid

sweetener containing methanol or wood alcohol, phenylalanine, and


Aspartame is a nerve toxic, gene toxin, and it reduces fertility and

induces spontaneous abortion. Exploding global pandemic diabetes and

obesity parallel the introduction of Aspartame to the world food

market. No harder hit population is those peoples of Hawaii. Across

generations the effects on switching on and off genes, has

accumulative effects affecting IQ, organ development, and sexual

maturation. Aspartame is a Molecular Global Eugenocide.

Hawaiian peoples have lost much of their population in the past, from

sexually transmitted diseases and white man?s viruses and diets. Now

the peoples of Hawaii are in the crosshairs of an even more

devastating holocaust than the 95% population lost after white man

came to these islands, by the end of the 19th Century. Diabetes and

obesity now strike a huge proportion of the population, as well as

autism, ADD and ADHD, learning disorders, and neurological syndromes,

mood disorders and mental illness including dementia.

Aspartame toxicity is amplified by ELF electromagnetic pollution from

WiFi networks, cell phone and the electronic cage of our world.

Cellular and non-thermal gene damage accumulates over years of

exposure and over generations. Micronuclei, DNA breaks and abnormal

chromosomes are produced in abundance with Aspartame and ELF pollution.

Cotoxic with Aspartame for Hawaiians is DU NotSo Depleted Uranium

nanoparticles, release as a poison gas from the Pohakaloa Stryker

Munitions Testing Range and blowing back on the Big Island and Maui

and on to Oahu. Uranium has heavy metals toxicity and radioisotope

toxicity of nanoparticles that are continuous sources of Alpha

particle emissions for billions of years. It displaces Molybdenum in

the cellular enzymes causing neuromuscular syndromes. Chromium

related enzymes are also blocked causing tissue insulin resistance,

pancreatic Beta insulin producing cellular death, and causing obesity

and diabetes. Aspartame is a massive amplified of cellular molecular

pancreatic damage. Combined with DU heavy metal radioisotope vapors,

future generations of Hawaiians risk major epidemic premature death

from heart, vascular, renal failure, blindness, amputations, and cancers.

Methanol, wood alcohol is a major product of cellular metabolism of

Aspartame. It induces blindness, renal failure, brain neuron cellular

damage and death, and peripheral nerve damage. Also a product of

Aspartame, Diketopiperazine induces seizures, neuron cellular death,

and precancerous chromatin clumping seen in early changes of neuron

transformation to aggressive Gliomas and Astrocytoma brain tumors.

CODEX ALIMENTARIUS or 'Food Rules' is proceeding swiftly to

international treaty approval. This will lead to no less than the

'Weaponization of Food'.

Aspartame, MSG, Fluoridation, GMO Frankenfoods, Food Irradiation,

Seven of Nine Internationally Previous Banned Pesticides, Hormone

Amplified Meat Production, and Genetic Vaccines of Animals with

Unstable Gene Cassettes of Switching Genes all are in the line for

approvals for standardized international trade. GMO foods transfer to

us unstable genes and cause GMP Genetically Modified People. Multiple

toxins cause early onset of menses, breast development are linked to

female cancers and hormone in meat and xenoestrogens in male cancer

of the prostate. Chief among these toxins and most provable is Aspartame.

WTO, World Trade Organization can set heavy fines and countervailing

tariffs against any nation blocking these toxic Foods of Death.

Combined with expanding famine for rice, wheat and grain crops, the

WTO Codex will result in malnutrition, disease and early death.

WHO UN FAO plans include at the tip of this spear pointed at human

biology many toxins, but chief is Aspartame. The science and evidence

is damning and should result in an International Food Adulterant Ban

on Aspartame. Misleading labeling, and now proliferation to 6000+

food products and now even as a vaccine adjuvant, it is difficult to

vote against consumption with properly informed consumers. The

'Precautionary Principal' is not at all in operation to protect the

public health.

Look soberly at Aspartame approval as a criminal manipulation of FDA

approval. Aspartame has started PCD People Collapse Disorder. Just as

Einstein was attributed as saying "When the bees are gone, people are

next?" PCD will follow CCD of the world?s bee populations unless we

ban Aspartame and adventurous profiteering with WTO Big Agribusiness

and Big Pharma Food Toxins.

Turn back from the brink of a health crisis more serious than even

the high price Hawaiian Islanders paid by the end of the 19th

Century. It is no longer a theory or point of dispute. To Ban

Aspartame to Hawaii is the right thing to do for the islands, and all

Americans. The peoples of Earth will follow by banning all

eugenocidal food toxins. Let us offer a healthy and happy disease

free future to countless generations of Hawaii Islanders.


Diet Sodas and lobbyists cloud Hawaii Senate Health Chair's vision? Aspartame resolution not scheduled, thus killed.

This is a letter published with the permission of Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum,

Founder of Mission Possible International to Hawaii Senate Health Chair, Sen.

David Ige, who although signed the Hawaii Senate Resolution asking FDA to

rescind approval for aspartame, ended up in fact never scheduling it for the

obligatory hearing in his Senate Health Committee, thus killing the

Resolution that he had signed with ten other Senate Committee Chairs and Vice


April 28, 2008

Dear Senator Ige:

The Senate Resolution, SCR 191, regarding aspartame, was so damning, you felt

it had to be a hoax, and requested references which were immediately sent.

Even this short resolution as damning as it was about this deadly addictive

excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug that interacts with virtually all drugs

and vaccines could not convey every horrible fact.

Many years ago I met a woman who had met one of the three scientists who had

worked on the project. He was known to travel telling people to avoid

NutraSweet at all costs because it should never have been approved. He was

also on the Phil Donahue show back in the early l980's explaining how

aspartame is a seizure triggering drug, and anti-seizure medication won't

work. He had pleaded with Searle not to approve this deadly drug and finally

left in disgust. I was very concerned with the fact the woman said that he

was elderly and admitted he might not live to see the day when people would

just be dropping dead in the streets from aspartame. Today that is happening.

So many athletes have dropped dead that Dr. Russell Blaylock, author of

Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, wrote a

warning. Here is that Athlete Alert: Dr. H. J. Roberts who wrote the

1000 page medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, likewise wrote a paper on Aspartame and Sudden Death: Here's one I wrote as well

to the FDA: Some years ago two

European Parliamentarians petitioned the World Health Organization because

they couldn't understand why people were dropping dead for no reason. They

suggested it should be called sudden death syndrome so it could be tracked.

Even young student athletes in schools are dropping dead.

Do not think that Searle who originally made this poison doesn't know how

deadly aspartame is. First of all, pharmaceutical and chemical companies are

known to do studies out of the country to find out how damaging products are

they are concerned about. In the case of aspartame Searle did studies in six

countries sacrificing people in poor villages who wouldn't be missed. An

affidavit from the translator explained how aspartame destroyed the brain and

central nervous system. She said subjects in 18 months got brain tumors and

had all types of seizures, and aspartame hardened the synovial fluids. The

pregnant woman lost her baby, hemorrhaged and then disappeared. Some died.

Searle was very good at telling people that aspartame is the most studied

product and 200 studies have been done showing safety. What Searle didn't say

was that in these studies they couldn't prove safety so they committed fraud,

and they got caught. Here is the Bressler Report or FDA audit which

explained how Searle was filtering out neoplasms, and they were even excising

brain tumors from the rats, putting them back in the study and then

resurrecting them on paper. The report found that 98 of the 196 animals died

during one of Searle's studies and weren't autopsied under later dates, in

some cases over one year after they died.

Records for approximately 30 animals showed substantial differences

between original observations on pathology sheets and the observations on

pathology sheets submitted to the FDA. There were numerous other

inconsistencies and errors noted. A mass, a uterine polyp and ovarian

neoplasms were found in animals but not reported or diagnosed in Searle's

reports. The FDA investigators found dose-related uterine polyps in 15% of

34 animals. Interestingly I called Jerome Bressler when he retired from the

FDA and thanked him for being honest and telling the public the truth. He

told me that it was a lot worse than what I had read in the FDA audit because

the FDA had retyped his report and it was so damning, they left out the worst

20%, two mice studies. Doctors H. J. Roberts and Russell Blaylock also spoke

with Jerome Bressler and were told the same thing so Dr. Roberts asked his

Congressman to get the omitted part of the report. The FDA refused the

congressman saying it was confidential. I recently wrote a FOIA report for it

and was told it was confidential. When I said that this audit was a matter

of public record all of a sudden it became destroyed.

On January 10, l977 in a 33 page letter, FDA Chief Counsel Richard Merrill

recommended to US Attorney Sam Skinner that a grand jury investigate Searle

for "apparent violations of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, 21 USC

331 (e) and the False Reports to the Government Act 18 USC 1001, for "their

willful and knowing failure to make reports to the Food and Drug

Administration required by the Act 21 U.S.C. 355 (i), and for concealing

material facts and making false statements in reports of animal studies

conducted to establish the safety of

aspartame." Instead of indicting Searle, Sam Skinner hired on with the

defense team. So U.S. Prosecutor William Conlon was asked to take over. He,

too, hired on with the defense team and the statute of limitations expired.

The FDA at that time had absolutely no intention of allowing aspartame on the

market. Here are some remarks made at the FDA Task Force:

"At the heart of FDA's regulatory process is its ability to rely upon the

integrity of the basic safety data submitted by sponsors of regulated

products. Our investigation clearly demonstrates that, in the case of G D

Searle Company, we have no basis for such reliance now."

"We have noted that Searle has not submitted all the facts of experiments to

FDA, retaining unto itself the unpermitted option of filtering, interpreting,

and not submitting information which we would consider material to the safety

evaluation of the product .... Finally, we have found instance of irrelevant

or unproductive animal research where experiments have been poorly conceived,

carelessly executed, or inaccurately analyzed or reported."

"Some of our findings suggest an attitude of disregard for FDA's mission of

protection of the public health by selectively reporting the results of

studies in a manner which allay the concerns of question of an FDA

reviewer." "Unreliability in Searle's animal research does not imply,

however, that its animal studies have provided no useful information on the

safety of its products. Poorly controlled experiments containing random

errors blur the differences between treated and control animals and increase

the difficulty of discriminating between the two populations to detect a

product induced effect. A positive

finding of toxicity in the test animals in a poorly controlled study provides

a reasonable lower bound on the true toxicity of the substance. The agency

must be tree to conclude that the results from such a study, while admittedly

imprecise as to incidence or severity of the untoward effect, cannot be

overlooked in arriving at a decision concerning the toxic potential of the


It would be very easy to give you another 50 pages of the horrors of original

aspartame studies. You simply can't take a deadly chemical poison and have

it show safety. It can't be done. Searle got caught constantly.

For instance in the aspartame (DKP) 115 week rat study the written

observations of the pathology report was changed by the supervising

pathologist, Dr. Rudolph Stejskal even though he was not physically present

during the autopsies and could not have verified the observations of the

pathology who did perform the autopsies. The pathologist who did perform

some of the autopsies had no formal training for such procedures. (Gross

l985, page S10837 of Congressional Record l985b). You could go from study

to study and show the fraud. For instance in the aspartame 46 week hamster

study, blood samples reported in the submission to FDA as 26 week values (for

certain specified animals) were found by investigators as being, in fact,

values for different animals which were bled at the 38th week. Many of the

animals for which these values were reported (to the FDA) were dead at the

38th week." (Gross 1985, page S10838 of congressional record l985b).

There were "clerical or arithmetic errors which resulted in reports of few

tumors." (Schmidt 1976c, page 27 of US Senate l976b). G. D. Searle "delayed

the reporting of alarming findings." (Schmidt 1976c, page 27 of US Senate


Dr. Adrian Gross, FDA toxicologist who was on site really summed it up when

he said:

"They ( G.. D. Searle) lied and they didn't submit the real nature of their

observations because had they done that it is more than 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." Wilson l985

FDA lead investigator and Task Force Team Leader, Phillip Brodsky described

the 1975 FDA Task Force members as some of the most experienced drug

investigators. He went on to state that he had never seen anything as bas as

G. D. Searle's studies (Graves 1984, page S5499 of Congressional Record


Dr. Marvin Legator, professor and director of environmental toxicology at the

University of Texas and the pioneer of mutagenicity testing at the FDA from

1962 to 1972 was asked by Common Cause Magazine to review the FDA

investigation results of G. D. Searle's tests (Graves 1984, page S5498 of

Congressional Record 1985a):

"All tests were scientifically irresponsible and disgraceful. I'm just

shocked that that kind of sloppy work would even be sent to FDA, and that the

FDA administrators accepted it. There is no reason why these tests couldn't

have been carried out correctly. It's not that we are talking about some

great scientific breakthrough in methodology."

Senator Edward Kennedy at the April 8, 1976 hearings before the Senate

Subcommittee on Labor and Public Welfare stated (Kennedy l976): "The

extensive nature of the almost unbelievable range of abuses discovered by the

FDA on several major Searle products is profoundly disturbing."

Senator Ige, this is what we know: no doubt a lot was hidden. In fact, Dr.

Adrian Gross said the deliberate misconduct and lies invalidated all their

experiments for these reasons:

1. Many of the problems with the studies included horrendous experimental

designs, questions regarding dosage given, loss of animal tissue and data,

etc.. which invalidates entire experiments and causes what they claim to be 4

million observations and calculations per study (average) to become


2. Only the key aspartame studies were looked at. It is almost a certainty

that the non-key aspartame studies were equally flawed. Therefore, this

would invalidate the "hundreds of millions" of observations and calculations

made during these studies.

3. The difference between a study showing no statistical difference and a

significant statistical difference is often only a few observations or

calculations. Therefore, had the myriad of other serious experimental errors

not occurred, the observation and calculation mistakes in each experiment

investigated would, by themselves, invalidate most of the key studies.

4. It is highly unlikely that 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.

So you see, Senator Ige, no matter what the aspartame industry says, about

aspartame being the most tested additive in history and showing safety, the

public record shows aspartame never showed safety at all. What it did show

was massive fraud, and they got out of it by buying the U.S. Prosecutors who

were never investigated for not doing their job and instead going to work for

the defense team.

So FDA revoked the petition for approval. Here is that report.

Before the FDA Commissioner, Dr. Jere Goyan could sign this into law, the

next day Searle filed suit. Don Rumsfeld was CEO of Searle, hired to get them

out of trouble. He said he would call in his markers and get aspartame on

the market anyway. What were those markers? President Reagan had told

Rumsfeld he would nominate him for Vice President but instead nominated

Bush. Rumsfeld said Reagan owed him a favor and Reagan paid it. Rumsfeld

was on Reagan's transition team and the day after President Reagan took

office he appointed Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes as FDA Commissioner to over-rule

the Board of Inquiry. Knowing it would take 30 days to get him there he

wrote an executive order making the FDA powerless to do anything about

aspartame. This executive order is suppose to be a matter of public record

but today has been stricken. Someone from the Reagan Transition Team called

FDA Commissioner, Dr. Jere Goyan at 3:00 AM in the morning and fired him.

Here is the actual letter from Dr. Goyan's wife who at the time was with him

when he received the call. Notice she mentions that executive order.

Dr. Goyan died just a few months ago.

Back during those days the FDA was the hero. A former Searle employee once

wrote an article titled: "What Happened To the Old FDA?" Her question was

answered by the Philadelphia Inquirer on 11/22/87: The New FDA: Good

Medicine for Drug Firms: This is when

as the article points out the FDA stopped operating in an adversary role and

became a friend of the drug industry. This is the FDA under Dr. Arthur Hull

Hayes who was put there specifically to put one of the most deadly drugs on

the market to mass poison the American Public and today over 100 countries of

the world. Rumors fly on what they had on Hayes to get him to do this deadly

deed. When he over-ruled the Board of Inquiry and put aspartame on the

market he has refused to speak to the press ever since.

In l983 the National Soft Drink Association protested that aspartame not be

approved in carbonated beverages even mentioning the law that makes it

illegal to market a product that is adulterated. They had concluded that

aspartame is not safe in carbonated beverages.

On July 8, l983 Acing Commissioner of the FDA, Mark Novitch, approved

NutraSweet for use in carbonated beverages and carbonated beverage syrup

bases, even though levels of aspartame remaining in beverages stored eight

weeks at 68 degrees F were between 84% and 89% of the original

amount. "Lost" aspartame degrades to DKP (a brain tumor agent), methanol, a

severe metabolic poison, aspartic acid, an excitotoxin, and phenylalanine, as

an isolate a neurotoxin that lowers the seizure threshold and depletes

serotonin triggering psychiatric and behavioral problems. Aspartame

interacts with all antidepressants.

I personally called Mark Novitch recently and asked him about what he did.

It seems Mr. Novitch, who did this under the direction of Arthur Hull Hayes,

had a bad case of amnesia. He said it was so long ago he just couldn't

remember anything on the issue. That was certainly a convenient loss of

memory. Memory loss is #9 on the FDA list of 92 documented symptoms from

aspartame from four types of seizures to coma and death.

Amid allegations of using General Foods jet and other things, Dr. Hayes

resigned and went to work for the PR Agency of the manufacturer on a ten year

contract for 00.00 a day. What does an FDA Commissioner do for a PR

agency? Send postcards home from Bermuda. One article said he was there

about 15 days. Quite a reward for putting a deadly poison on the market and

mass poisoning the world so Searle could get rich. Immediately people started

complaining and Senator Howard Metzenbaum tried for congressional hearings.

They were not heard until 1985 because of Senator Orrin Hatch who was given

money from Monsanto who bought Searle that year.

There were actually three congressional hearings because of the outrage of

the public on being poisoned. It was triggering seizures, MS and all sorts

of neurodegenerative diseases. One pilot who testified said his plane

started going down when he passed out over the sea on aspartame, but woke up

in time to land it. Mission Possible Aviation was started when a plane

crashed on aspartame, and the pilot came to Atlanta and asked me for help.

Here is Dr. Blaylock's pilot alert: Notice he

mentions again this problem of sudden death. Six American Airline pilots

died who used aspartame including one in flight, who passed out and never

woke up.

Many scientists as well as victims testified and it was admitted that the FDA

was so overcome with complaints they were sending them to the AIDS Hotline.

Senator Metzenbaum wrote a bill to do independent studies by the National

Institute of Health having to do with the problems being seen in the

population. This included seizures, drug interaction, behavioral problems

and what it does to the fetus.

Dr. Louis Elsas testified and said: .... I am a pediatrician, a Professor

of Pediatrics at Emory, and have spent 25 years in the biomedical sciences,

trying to prevent mental retardation and birth defects caused by excess

phenylalanine. And therein lies my basic concern, that aspartame is in fact

a well known neurotoxin and teratogen which, in some as yet undefined dose,

will both reversibly in the adult and irreversibly in the developing child or

fetal brain, produce adverse effects. You remember those sloppy studies by

Searle. So what about reproduction studies in teratology to find out what

aspartame would do to the fetus? Here is what was discussed in Congress.

"It is significant to note that the Searle employee responsible for reviewing

most of the reproduction studies had only one year of prior experience,

working on population dynamics of cotton trial rabbits while employed by

Illinois Wildlife Service. In order to

prepare him for this title of 'Senior Research Assistant in Teratology'

(fetal damage) Searle bought him books to read on the subject and also sent

him to a meeting of the Teratology Society. This qualified him to submit 18

of the initial tests to the FDA, in addition to training an assistant and 2

technicians. He certainly must have kept them busy because Searle claimed

that 329 teratology examinations were conducted in just 2 days. He estimated

that he himself examined about 30 fetuses a day, but officials for the Center

for Food and Applied Nutrition could never determine how that was possible."

Graves 1984, page S5500 of Congressional Record l985a).

Since aspartame was approved autism has gone through the roof. One woman who

used Diet Coke with aspartame through 3 pregnancies has 3 autistic children.

Another woman said she stopped using aspartame once pregnant but said her

physician at Emory said it built up in her system. She has one autistic

child and one with ADD. Today between learning problems and behavioral and

psychiatric problems because of this poison our children are medicated

instead of educated. A Parents Magazine article in September 1999 said the

normal for children today is abnormal.

Senator Metzenbaum in his bill also asked that a moratorium be put on

aspartame. The bill never got out of Congress. One physician who testified

said Senator Orrin Hatch was a hypocrite and prevented anything from

happening. Congress is supposed to be there for the good of the people and

obviously doing independent studies on aspartame couldn't hurt anybody but

the manufacturer. Nobody in Congress cared about the people since nothing

was done during all three congressional hearings with physicians, scientists

and victims speaking out on the deadly effects of this drug. Only Monsanto

benefited who paid Orrin Hatch and others and made sure happened.

Both FDA toxicologists Dr. Adrian Gross and Dr. Jacqueline Verrett who were

on site and saw what happened in original studies spoke out against the FDA

who is today, Big Pharma's Washington Branch Office.

On August 1, l985 the FDA's own toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress

at least one of Searle's studies "has established beyond ANY REASONABLE DOUBT

that aspartame is capable of inducing brain tumors in experimental animals

and that this predisposition of it is of extremely high significance. ... In

view of these indications that the cancer causing potential of aspartame is a

matter that had been established WAY BEYOND ANY REASONABLE DOUBT, one can

ask: What is the reason for the apparent refusal by the FDA to invoke for

this food additive the so-called Delaney Amendment to the Food, Drug and

Cosmetic Act?"

The Delaney Amendment makes it illegal to allow any residues of cancer

causing chemicals in foods. In his concluding testimony Gross asked, "Given

the cancer causing potential of aspartame how would the FDA justify its

position that it views a certain amount of aspartame as constituting an

allowable daily intake or 'safe' level of it? Is that position in effect not

equivalent to setting a 'tolerance' for this food additive and thus a

violation of that law? And if the FDA itself elects to violate the law, who

is left to protect the health of the public?" Congressional Record SID835:131

(August 1, l985)

Dr. Jacqueline Verrett told Congress she belied the original aspartame

studies were "built on a foundation of sand". She testified in front of a

U.S. Senate hearing in 1987 that flawed tests conducted by Searle - used as

the basis of FDA approval were a "disaster" and should have been "thrown

out". She said she believed the studies left many unanswered questions about

possible birth defects and the safety of aspartame. Verrett said the team

was instructed not to be concerned with, or comment upon, the overall

validity of the study. She said a subsequent review discarded or ignored the

problems and deficiencies outlined by her team's original report. She

said, "serious departures from acceptable toxicological protocols, which her

investigative team noted in the reevaluation of these studies were also

discounted. She warned that any of the improper practices would compromise

and negate a safety study of food additive. Verrett concluded the data in the

study was worthless, and the safety of aspartame and its breakdown products

have therefore not been determined.

She emphasized that aspartame exists in the marketplace without basic

toxicity information. She said there are no data to assess the interactions

with DKP, excess phenylalanine, other aspartame metabolites, additives, drugs

or other chemicals. In her testimony, Verrett elaborated on DKP problems,

including significant increases of uterine polyps and changes in blood

cholesterol. Senator Metzenbaum, chairman of the hearing when Verrett

testified, asked her if she disagreed with FDA's position that tests for

aspartame safety were credible. Verrett succinctly said she disagreed.

So even in 1987, 6 years after approval, aspartame had still not been proven

safe. In fact, in l986 the Community Nutritional Institute in Washington,

D.C. petitioned the FDA to ban aspartame because so many people were having

seizures and going blind from the free methyl alcohol. The FDA refused.

Remember today the FDA is part of Big Pharma. When those responsible to

solve the problem ARE the problem its a disgrace and an abomination.

As people continued to have seizures and other problems Monsanto would fund

studies to show safety. Here are examples of scientific abuse in aspartame

seizure studies:

Because its impossible to show safety of a poison like aspartame, Dr. Ralph

Walton did research on scientific peer reviewed studies and funding. This

showed that 92% of independent studies showed the problems and only those

funded and controlled by the manufacturer ever said they were safe. In fact,

Dr. Walton says if you eliminate 6 studies that the FDA had something to do

with because of their obvious siding with industry now, and one pro-industry

summary, that 100% of independent scientific peer reviewed studies showed the

problems aspartame causes. This proves if the aspartame industry keeps their

checkbook and influence out of it, there is no way to get aspartame to show

safety. Here is that research by Dr. Walton:

FDA has betrayed the public trust. Today it has ignored 100 independent

scientific peer reviewed studies including the Trocho Study, which showed

that aspartame embalms living tissue and damages DNA. When you damage DNA

you can destroy humanity. Dr. Alemany who sent testimony to Hawaii told me

personally in Barcelona that aspartame could kill 200 million people. The

NutraSweet people when this study was done tried to assassinate his

character. Funding was immediately reduced. There is a company called ILSI

who gives funding with members like Monsanto, Searle, Coke, Pepsi, etc.,

(that is: as long as you're willing to say this poison is safe). FDA has also

ignored a petition for ban for 6 years even though the law requires they

answer it in 180 days. Why haven't they answered it, because the facts in

the petition are from their own records and how do you disagree with that.

An imminent health hazard petition must be answered within a couple of

weeks. I sent this in October. They have ignored that too.

My Senator told me if you want to ban aspartame is has to go through the

local legislature. First we tried New Mexico. The Capital was saturated

with lobbyists and front groups like Calorie Control Council who even push

aspartame on pregnant women. Some of the Senators I testified too sat there

sipping Diet Coke.

Aspartame is addictive, the free methyl alcohol, classified as a narcotic

causes chronic methanol poisoning. This affects the dopamine system of the

brain and causes addiction. I happened to ask Dr. Bill Deagle one day why

addicts on aspartame were not rational. He said because aspartame affects

the frontal lobe so its like talking to someone who has had a lobotomy.

Aspartame changes brain chemistry and users many times can look at the

documents that show the devastating studies and the horrors aspartame caused,

and insist its safe. It goes beyond dumbing down the public. I've heard

many of the experts

say today the mental hospitals are full of patients who are simply aspartame


Aspartame is pushed on diabetics when, in fact, it can precipitate the

disease, simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy,

destroys the optic nerve, causes diabetics to go into convulsions and even

interacts with insulin. Look at the epidemic of diabetes in Hawaii. The

aspartame manufacturers fund the American Diabetes Assn and professional

organizations in general. Look at Hawaii's epidemic of suicide. The

phenylalanine in aspartame depletes serotonin triggering suicidal tendencies,

bipolar, panic attacks, hallucinations, etc.

Rep Josh Green, M.D. has the 1000 page medical text of the horrors that

aspartame triggers. It would take volumes to go over the many symptoms and

diseases. Just think of it, Senator Ige - planes crashing, mental hospitals

full of aspartame victims, lives destroyed, diabetics dying, and people

everywhere getting cancer. The prestigious Ramazzini Studies showed

aspartame is a multipotential carcinogen even in small amounts, and passed on

to other generations.

Well Hawaii had its chance, didn't it, but lets just talk about you for a

moment, Senator. I've called you time and time again. It's as if your

assistant, Joyce, has been told to tell all people you're in and out of

committee meetings. You never return a call no matter how many times calls

are made, if its about aspartame. Even Dr. Deagle called and you know he is

almost in Hawaii now, and you didn't even have the decency to return his

call. Joyce has the habit of asking anyone who is not from Hawaii just what

they are doing about aspartame wherever they are from and why they are

concerned about this state. Is this what you told her to say?

The reason I'm getting on your case because you signed the resolution and

then decided it showed aspartame to be so deadly you had to have references.

When given the references so you knew beyond a shadow of a doubt its all

true, you did not set up the committee meeting, and the original bill was

deferred. Neither have you answered any of my letters, not one, even though

I took the time to give you what you asked for.

So now I want to know who got to you? Was it aspartame lobbyists, Coke or

even Roz Baker who was deleting testimonies without reading them? She was a

previous lobbyist.

Or Senator is it because you use the poison and want to continue your habit?

As I write this letter, Dr. Deagle is on his way to Hawaii for a press

conference we are hoping will be held. What will you say to him when he gets

there on the last day of the legislature? Or will you ignore him too like

you have ignored everybody else.

Neither did Codex ban aspartame even though there were great efforts. This

means instead of 6000 products it could be in 100,000 products. Aspartame

can destroy the human race, and the world you leave for your children and

your grandchildren. The only hope is for the states that ban it, and you

turned away from your responsibility to the people of Hawaii. Every time

somebody drops dead or gets cancer from aspartame in Hawaii, remember: it

didn't have to be that way. You had the opportunity to stop it there and

save the Hawaiian people from this poison. You wouldn't even schedule the

hearing! I'm disappointed and ashamed of you, Senator.

There have been many heroes who gave their all like the experts who have

alerted the public for years. Attorney James Turner worked with world

renowned Dr. John Olney to prevent approval. Dr. Olney's 49 page report to

the FDA gave the prophecy of how aspartame if approved would destroy the

brains of our children. Here is that report: The FDA agreed and revoked the petition

for approval, and then Rumsfeld got it on the market. Unfortunately, the

prophecy has now been fulfilled.

What will you do now, Senator, as the legislature comes to an end, and the

hope with it to save the Hawaiian people from this poison? Your assistant

Joyce wanted to know why people from other parts of the world cared about

Hawaii. Because Senator, we are to love our neighbor as ourselves and care

about all people. It would have been commendable if you had cared as much as

people calling from around the world.
