News Title: Campaign to ban synthetic sweetener aspartame gaining global ground To read the entire story, visit A resolution to rescind approval of aspartame, written by Stephen Fox and Betty Martini, D.Hum, founder of Mission Possible International (MPI), was submitted to all members of the South Africa parliament August 9th by the Phoenix Environmental Institute (PEI). The organization also lodged a complaint with the country's Department of Health and its Advertising Standards Authority. Contact info for PEI: Khadija Sharife, The original resolution (Hawaii Senate Concurrent Resolution 191) is a genteel legislative mandate and request of the FDA to rescind aspartame approval. It resulted from difficulties faced by the original ban bill, which were brought by Corporate Lobbyists. Attempts to obtain a legislative ban on the known neurotoxic, non-nutritive food additive in New Mexico almost succeeded in 2006 and, 47 members of the UK parliament signed an "Early Day Motion" in favor of an aspartame ban in Jan, 2006. A petition on aspartame was submitted to the New Zealand government with over 8,000 signatures on July 23, 2008. Public awareness regarding the dangers of consuming products containing aspartame is growing. To help generate the critical mass necessary to criminalize the trafficking of aspartame in countries throughout the world, MPI has teamed up with PEI to distribute vital facts on aspartame for the global banning of this known neurotoxin. Several aspartame awareness documents, free for downloading, are available at Also available is The Artificially Sweetened Times-a compelling, 24-page booklet dedicated to teaching people about the dangers of aspartame. The Artificially Sweetened Times can be found at Aspartame Awareness weekend The weekend of September 5 - 7 is Aspartame Awareness Weekend for 2008. The international emphasis this year is to provide restaurant managers with "aspartame facts" so they are encouraged to remove aspartame voluntarily (Equal/NutraSweet/E951/Canderel, etc.) as a sweetener option from their restaurant tables. There are safe alternatives. "Just Like Sugar" has restaurant packets available in a natural sweetener of chicory, orange peel, Vitamin C and Calcium which is safe for diabetics, whereas aspartame and sucralose (Splenda) are deadly. Be warned about Neotame from ASP manufacturers which has now been approved. Aspartame is an addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug that interacts with virtually all drugs and vaccines due to damage to the mitochondria or life of the cell. Aspartame is currently added to drugs prescribed to treat the problems it causes as well as many children's vitamins. For instance, "headache" is number one on the FDA list of 92 symptoms of aspartame poisoning. When chronic headache sufferers seek medical care they may be given Maxalt by Merck; Maxalt contains aspartame. Aspartame interacts with L-dopa and can trigger Parkinson's Disease. Yet, Parcopa, a drug prescribed to Parkinson's sufferers, has aspartame in it and Parcopa manufacturer Schwarz Pharmaceutical refuses to remove it. Four different types of seizures are noted on the FDA list of 92 symptoms of aspartame poisoning. A drug commonly prescribed to treat seizures, Dilantin, manufactured by Pfizer, has been reformulated and has caused a tremendous amount of publicity because epileptics taking this drug are experiencing more seizures, loss of equilibrium, vision problems, glaucoma and even sexual dysfunction, all of which are well-known symptoms that aspartame victims suffer. A campaign to determine conclusively that the new Dilantin formula contains aspartame is currently underway as are preparations to file a class action lawsuit against Pfizer. Epileptics, whose sudden increase of seizures coincide with taking the reformulated Dilantin, a larger capsule that is white with a red stripe, are encouraged to contact Dr. Glenn Mabson of the Epileptic Foundation of Maui at Ketocal, a supplement drink, is a common component of the ketogenic diet, a high-fat/low carbohydrate dietary regimen primarily prescribed to epileptic children. Ketocal contains aspartame The model aspartame ban resolution is currently being translated into several languages. See the resolution at If you're interested in translating the resolution into your language or pursuing an aspartame ban, contact Dr. Betty Martini of MPI. You can also subscribe to the Aspartame Information List on to stay current with worldwide efforts to ban the neurotoxic, carcinogenic drug aspartame. Resources include the medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic by H. J. Roberts, M.D., and Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., An aspartame documentary, "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World", explains how Don Rumsfeld got this toxin on the market through political chicanery, and includes aspartame experts and victims.
