(my letter to FDA re aspartame)

My mother had complained for years about aches in her joints or muscles when she would exert herself the slightest bit. After she read the email below, she quit aspartame, and her problems disappeared. My friend also had problems, with vision and skin, which went away when he quit using nutrasweet--after reading these warnings. More recently, a fellow bus-rider quit, and noticed a reduction in frequency and severity of petit-mal seizures; and he feels better. We can thank Betty Martini (and others, I am sure), working through Mission Possible, for bringing this information to light.

NutraSweet is not Food

Subject: Aspartame & Multiple Sclerosis, FDA Sued for collusion with 
From: Betty Martini 

Dear McLibel network. Thought you would be interested in this post I put on the neurology list. Because these problems discussed are often triggered by three or four diet drinks a day - and remember McDonald's sells them to children, it would be helpful on this list. Also, this is in their yogurt given to children too.

Dear Doctor Rivner and Group:

I have spent several days lecturing at the World Environmental Conference on aspartame marketed as NutraSweet, Equal & Spoonful. In the keynote address by the EPA they announced that there was an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus, and they did not understand what toxin was causing this to be rampant across the nation.

I explained that I was there to lecture on exactly that subject. That the wood alcohol in aspartame converts to formaldehyde and then formic acid,( ant sting poison) and causes metabolic acidosis. That methanol toxicity mimics multiple sclerosis and that people were being diagnosed with it in error. That multiple sclerosis was not a death sentence but that methanol toxicity is.

In the case of systemic lupus we are finding that it has become almost as rampant, especially with Diet Coke drinkers or Diet Pepsi drinkers, also with methanol toxicity the victims usually drink three or four of them a day.

In the case of systemic lupus which is triggered by aspartame, the victim usually does not know that is the culprit and continues its use aggravating it to such a degree that sometimes it is life threatening. When we get people off aspartame those with systemic lupus usually become asymptomatic but we can't reverse the disease.

On the other hand, in the case of those diagnosed with MS when in reality its methanol toxicity most of the time all symptoms disappear. We've seen cases where their vision has returned and even their hearing has returned. It causes a good deal also of tinnitus.

During a lecture I said: "If you're using NutraSweet (Equal, aspartame, Spoonful, etc.) and you have fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss --- you have aspartame disease!" People were jumping up in the lecture saying: "I've got it, I've got it - is it reversible!" It is rampant.

Some of the speakers even were suffering from these symptoms. In one lecture attended by the Ambassador of Uganda, he told me the sugar industry is adding aspartame! We heard about that. He even said the man's son could no longer walk - probably using the product!

We have a major, major problem. Even a stranger came up to Dr. Espisto and myself at the airport when we were giving out information and said: "Could you tell me why everyone is coming down with MS?"

A hospice nurse said she had 6 friends who were Diet Coke addicts and they had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond coincidence!

Here is the problem! There were congressional hearings when it was in 100 products and then a few hundred products. There have been three but the drug/chemical company has deep pockets. Nothing was done. People at that time were already going blind because the methanol converts to formaldehyde in the retina of the eye. NOW ITS IN 5000 PRODUCTS AND THE PATENT HAS EXPIRED! It's in antibiotics, vitamins, baked goods and all kinds of products. Dr. H. J. Roberts, world expert on the subject, said its hard to avoid.

When you think of NutraSweet remember it is not a food additive but a deadly drug. Put it in the class with cyanide and arsenic - POISONS! It just takes longer to kill you but it is killing people and causing all kinds of neurological problems. It changes the brain chemistry, it is the reason for the rampant seizures, it changes the dopamine level in the brain so you can imagine what it would do to a Parkinson patient, and it causes birth defects.

There is no reason to take this product for any reason. It is NOT A DIET PRODUCT!!!! The Congressional Record said it makes you crave carbohydrates and get fat! Dr. Roberts said when he got patients off of it the average weight loss was 19 lbs. The formaldehyde stores in fat cells, particularly on the hips and thighs!!!!!

It is deadly for a diabetic. Any physician knows what wood alcohol will do to a diabetic. We find that physicians think they have diabetic retinopathy when they are going blind. It keeps their blood sugar out of control, many going into comas. Many have died!!!! People were telling me at the conference they had relatives that had switched from saccharin to NutraSweet and how they had gone into comas, the doctors couldn't figure out why they couldn't keep their sugar under control, and eventually they had died - and they had lost their memory in the end.

Memory loss is due to the fact that the aspartic acid and phenylalanine are neurotoxic without the other amino acids in protein and goes past the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the neurons of the brain. Dr. Russell Blaylock, Neurosurgeon, said the ingredients stimulates the neurons of the brain to death causing brain damage of varying degrees. He's written a book about it called EXCITOTOXINS; THE TASTE THAT KILLS (Health Press - 1 800 -643-2665). Dr. H. J. Roberts, diabetic specialist and world expert has just written DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMERS DISEASE ( 1 800 -814-9800) and tells how this is escalating Alzheimers Disease. And indeed it is, as the same hospice nurse told me 30 year old women are being admitted with Alzheimers.

I will ask Dr. Roberts and Dr. Blaylock since they are top experts and understand how methanol toxicity mimics multiple sclerosis to write a position paper and MISSION POSSIBLE will add some case histories or they will, and we will post it and put it on this network. According to the Conference we're talking about a plague of neurological diseases caused by this deadly poison.

Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when aspartame was first marketed because he said his diabetic patients presented with memory loss and confusion and severe vision loss.

At the Conference of the American College of Physicians, doctors admitted they didn't know. They wondered why seizures were rampant (the phenylalanine in aspartame breaks down the seizure threshold and depletes serotonin which causes manic depression, panic attacks, rage and violence).

Just before i left for the conference I got a fax from Norway asking for a antidote because they are having so many problems in their countries. This poison is now in 90+ countries of the world!

Fortunately, we had speakers and ambassadors at the Conference from different nations who are going help. We ask that you help too. Print this out and warn everyone you know. Take anything with this product back to the store. Take the "No Aspartame Test" and send us your case history.

I assure you that Monsanto knows how deadly this is. They fund the American Diabetic Association, American Dietetic Assn., Congress, etc. The New York Times on November 15 ran an article on how the American Dietetic Assn. takes money from the food industry to endorse their products and, therefore, cannot criticize any additive - and told about their link to Monsanto. How bad is this? We told a mother who had a child on NutraSweet having a grand mal seizure everyday to get off the product. She called her physician who called the ADA who told the doctor not to take the baby off NutraSweet. We're still trying to convince the mother this is causing the seizures. Everytime we get someone off of aspartame the seizures stop! If the baby dies you know whose fault it is, and what we're up against!

There are 92 documented symptoms on aspartame from coma to death - the majority of them are all neurological because aspartame destroys the nervous system!

This is a warning: OUTBREAK; ASPARTAME DISEASE! This is probably what is behind 6000 deaths from Desert Storm. The burning tongue discussed on 60 Minutes is the methanol breaking down. Aspartame liberates methanol in the can at 86 degrees. Diet drinks sat in the 120 degree Arabian sun for 8 weeks at a time on pallets and the servicemen drank them all day long. All their symptoms are identical to aspartame disease. Dr. Roberts says that a man consuming aspartame at the time of conception can cause birth defects in his child - as well as the mother using it. The phenylalanine concentrates in the placenta causing mental retardation according to Dr. Louis Elsas (Pediatric Professor - genetics) at Emory University in his testimony before Congress which we have on email!

In the original lab tests animals developed brain tumors (phenylalanine breaks down into DKP, a brain tumor agent). When Dr. Espisto was lecturing on aspartame one physician in the audience, evidently a neurosurgeon, said when they remove brain tumors they have aspartame in them!

Stevia, a sweet food, not an additive, that helps in the metabolism of sugar which would be ideal for diabetics, has now been approved as a dietary supplement -- after years of having it outlawed by the FDA, obviously because of their loyalty to Monsanto. We have a resource list for diabetics with safe sweeteners.

If it says sugarfree - don't even think about it!!!!

I do have the 92 documented symptoms from the FDA on email, case histories on people diagnosed with MS that reversed and other material. However, I've been out-of-town until last night and I'm swamped with hundreds of requests. If you want more information it may take awhile for me to get it to you. But in the meantime - as Dr. Whitaker says - get it out of the house - children may live there!

A bill was written by Senator Howard Metzenbaum that would have warned all infants, pregnant mothers and children off aspartame - and instituted INDEPENDENT studies on the problems existing in the population - seizures, change in brain chemistry, change in neurological and behavioral symptoms. It was killed by the power of the drug/chemical company, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting public!

Since the conference we probably will have some help from world leaders. Help us too - there are a lot of people on this planet that have to be warned -- and we have to get to all neurologists and neurosurgeons. ----------------------------------------------------------------------


Today Robert Cohen filed suit against the FDA in United States District Court of New Jersey. The Plaintiff is David Kessler in his official capacity as Commissioner, U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Phillip Lee in his official capacity as Assistant Secretary of Health of the Department of Health and Human Services.

This has to do with the FDA and Monsanto under Freedom of Information's refusal to release an unpublished paper that was cited as referene #42 and note #45 in an FDA paper published in the Journal SCIENCE (August 24, 1990) Juskevich & Guyer, 875-883).

This is the information that probably will tell us of the dangers of the bovine growth hormone. Actually, we already know that in lab animals spleens were increased as much as 46% denoting a pre-leukemic condition, and the insulin growth factor (IGF), the regulator of cancer is increased tremendously. If animals get leukemia and cancer what would you expect in humans?

Milk and milk products are served in McDonalds and this information might be of interest to your readers. Bob's phone number is 201 -599-0325 and he has given me permission to put this on the net for further information.

You may remember the missing scientists in the movie I LOVE TROUBLE. Bob has a reward for them - yes they are missing. We called the screenwriter about this movie to find out if they were writing about Monsanto.

More later.

Betty  . . .   Operation Mission Possible

If NutraSweet gives you cancer (and it violated the Delaney Amendment according to the late FDA toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, because of the brain tumors it produced in lab animals, the insulin growth factor in the bovine growth hormone will make it clinically significant!

Subject: Aspartame and Obesity, Clinical Effects
Date: Oct 14, 1995
From: Betty Martini (betty@pd.org)

(Note:McDonald's sells Diet coke, yogart and possibly other products with aspartame DB)

With regard to obesity (obesity report surpressed in England), I think this is due to aspartame sold as NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, and no telling what since the patent expired, and its now in 5000 products and climbing! In the Congressional Record, May 7, 1985 it says:

"Aspartame has been demonstrated to inhibit the carbohydrate induced synthesis of the neurotransmitter serotonin (Wurtman affidavit ). Serotonin blunts the sensation of craving carbohydrates and thus is part of the body's feedback system that helps limit consumption to appropriate levels. Its inhibition by aspartame could lead to the anomalous result of a diet product causing increased consumption of carbohydrates."

NutraSweet was never a diet product. It was discovered by a Searle chemist while testing a peptic ulcer drug and was intended to be a drug. Then the chemist got some on his finger and found out it was sweet. Dr. Wurtman is a brilliant doctor at MIT but he changed sides after writing about aspartame's hazards and became a consultant for NutraSweet. The National Soft Drink Association wrote a 30 page protest which is part of this congressional record stating they used the wrong test (would not pick up aspartic acid), used the wrong solution (tested in a buffered solution instead of beverage matrix, did not test for breakdown products (a witches brew - methanol converts to formaldehyde and then formic acid - ant sting poison, and phenylalanine breaks down to DKP, a brain tumor agent), and didn't test for temperature elevation (at 86 degrees aspartame liberates methanol in the can - methanol is a severe metabolic poison!)

These are the devastations of aspartame (masquerading as a sweetener):

1. Devastation of the Nation's Health. There are 92 documented medical reactions including seizures, blindness and death.

2. Hazard to American Aviation. Pilots have reported grand mal seizures in the cockpits of airliners. Many have lost their medicals. Hazards reported in many aviation journals including those of the Navy and Air Force. This Russian Roulette with 400 passenger planeloads must stop.

3. Infertility, birth defects and mental retardation in children. Irreversible damage to the fetal brain and developing child. While the NutraSweet company puts out ads saying its safe for the pregnant woman to use aspartame, in reality she could lose her baby because fetal tissue does not tolerate methanol. Dr. Louis Elsas (Pediatric Professor at Emory University) said at a hearing before the U.S. Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources (examining NutraSweet health and safety concerns 11/3/87) "I have spent 25 years in the biomedical sciences, trying to prevent mental retardation and birth defects caused by excessive phenylalanine. And therein lies my basic concern that aspartame is in fact a well-known neurotoxin and teratogen (writer's note - something that causes birth defects), which in some as yet unidentified dose will both reversibly in adult and irreversibly in the developing child or fetal brain produce adverse effects." He goes on to tell how phenylalanine concentrates in the placenta and causes mental retardation.

4. Epilepsy and other seizure disorders. In an original study by Searle, Dr. Harry Waisman was asked to study the effects of aspartame on primates. Seven infant monkeys were fed the chemical in milk. One died after 300 days. 5 others had Grand Mal Seizures. Searle deleted these findings when they submitted his study to the FDA. Monsanto bought Searle in 1985. Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology surveyed 80 people who suffered brain seizures after eating or drinking products with Aspartame. Said the Community Nutrition Institute: "These 80 cases meets the FDA's own definition of an imminent hazard to the public health, which requires the FDA to expeditiously remove a product from the market.

It showed be noted that because Monsanto funds trade organizations like the American Dietetic Assn., and American Diabetic Assn., etc. physicians were never given the information on aspartame. They think its just a safe sweetener. So when people have seizures they don't associate it with aspartame. Dr. H. J. Roberts, author of books on aspartame and the world expert, attended the American College of Physicians Conference here in Atlanta and I went with him. In Neurology, one professor said: "Please can somebody tell us where all these seizures are coming from - no matter how off the wall it may be." As Dr. Roberts says, patients spend huge sums of money for diagnostic tests but get no results until they abstain from aspartame.

5. Connection with Persian Gulf Syndrome: A soldier told me they could drink water and diet soda which sat in the Arabian sun up to 8 weeks. Temperature inside the can was probably 150 degrees as it was 120 degrees there. He said the guys who drank the diet soda have the syndrome. Symptoms are identical to NutraSweet Disease: Memory loss, chronic fatigue (methanol breaks down the immune system), headaches, insomnia, joint pain, vision and equilibrium loss, etc., etc. On 60 Minutes a couple of weeks ago one soldier talked about the burning tongue. A woman on Internet (Brandi J.) had just emailed her story of how she had this burning, tingling reaction to drinking Diet Pepsi. She said Pepsi said it was the "sweetness" breaking down, and sent her a new case. Methanol (a human specific poison) is what gives it the sweetness and when it breaks down to formaldehyde it is bitter and burns the tongue.

One lady I met made the caps for the Persian Gulf and they were told only to send things that were sugarfree and thousands and thousands of packets of Diet Kool-Aide were sent with the caps! These packets mixing chemicals and aspartame like this and Slimfast are some of the worst. They have caused a lot of bad reactions.

6. Criminal violence, manic depression, anxiety and suicide. Phenylalanine in aspartame lowers the seizure threshold in the brain and blocks serotonin production. Today our nation is swept by a rage of violence. Researchers attribute this in part to low brain serotonin levels inducing depression, rage and paranoia. This is what is causing all these panic attacks; they subside when we get the person off of aspartame.

7. The SIGHT of America. The methanol in aspartame converts to formaldehyde in the retina of the eye (ASPARTAME; METHANOL AND THE PUBLIC HEALTH, Dr. Woodrow Monte (Journal of Applied Nutrition, Volume 36, Number 1, 1984). Many people are going blind. In October, l986 Washington based Community Nutrition Institute filed a petition with the FDA to ban aspartame because of blindness. This was reported in the Chicago, Sun-Times, Friday, October 17, l986. One of victims in the article was Joyce Wilson. In April, l984 he wrote this article in a local Atlanta newspaper:

"Aspartame killed my wife. No words can express the agony and horror sweet Joyce endured. This poison destroyed her brain, ravaged all her organs and blinded her. She died at age 46 in 1991. .. I'm a man without a wife because the NutraSweet Company is a business without a conscience."

We are constantly getting people off aspartame and when we get them in time their vision does come back but many times by the time they are warned its too late like in this case. Dr. Roberts just wrote a paper on Aspartame and the Eye that I have available on email.

8. Sacrifice of the diabetics. How could anything be worse for a diabetic than wood alcohol. This is what killed or blinded thousands of skid row drunks during prohibition. Monsanto funds the American Diabetic Assn., and the American Dietetic Assn. who recommend NutraSweet for diabetics and pregnant women. What a crime. Physicians seeing diabetics lose their vision think it is normal diabetic retinopathy but in reality they are going blind. When the methanol converts to formaldehyde and then formic acid the patient has metabolic acidosis. Physicians think these are diabetic problems when in reality its because they are consuming a chemical poison. It is no wonder Dr. Roberts (diabetic specialist) calls this ASPARTAME DISEASE. The pattern and the symptoms are predictable and you can tell them what they are suffering from before you ask. Also, the American Diabetic Assn. knows - this is premeditated because they refused to publish Dr. Roberts' abstract of diabetic reactors to aspartame, and he's been a member of the ADA for almost 40 years. It was published in Clinical Research, Vol. 36, No. 3, 1988 489A.

Last year on October 1 we exposed the ADA here in Atlanta by giving out medical documentation on aspartame and its effect on diabetics at their walk-a-thon (sponsored by NutraSweet, of course). We dedicated the day to Joyce Wilson whose son had married a week or so before and on her empty chair was one long stem rose. We gave our press packs with black lace for mourning and a single long stem yellow rose in her memory.

This year the ADA did it again, Oct. 1, and we were there again giving out packets for the diabetic and their physician - but this time there was not as many people. We had gotten to so many last year. A few days before we did the same thing at the Juvenile Diabetic walk-a- thon where almost 2000 participated sponsored by Coca Cola. They had a NutraSweet Dessert! In the ADA event 10/1 I snapped a picture of such a toddler walking with a Diet Coke!

9. Connection to Alzheimer's: Dr. Roberts has been researching Alzheimers for 30 years and when aspartame was approved he noticed a difference in his diabetic patients - they presented with memory loss and confusion. He says the two amino acids in aspartame that are neurotoxic, aspartic acid and phenylalanine without the other amino acids in protein, and deteriorate the neurons of the brain. Alzheimers, a 20th century disease, is now the 4th leading cause of death, with 4 million victims, 250,000 new cases each year and 100,000 deaths. 50% of all patients in nursing homes are Alzheimer patients including baby boomers. When Joyce Wilson died she was just like an Alzheimer patient - with no memory. Dr. Roberts new book: DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE; A RATIONAL BLUEPRINT FOR PREVENTION has already been nominated for a Pulitzer. (1 800 -814-- 9800 - you can also get his tapes on aspartame at this number). Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, in his book EXCITOTOXINS: THE TASTE THAT KILLS 1 800-814--9800, tells you that the ingredients in NutraSweet literally stimulate the neurons of the brain to death.

10. Multiple Sclerosis. People are being diagnosed with MS when in reality it is methanol toxicity from aspartame. It does reverse if you get them in time and we have seen some cases of vision return. We at OPERATION MISSION POSSIBLE are a volunteer force in 50 states distributing a warning flyer on NutraSweet worldwide. We hope that this network can help us by getting the warning. This is the greatest atrocity ever committed in the history of the FDA. A Board of Inquiry convened by the FDA said not to approve aspartame because of the seizures and the brain tumors it caused in lab animals. Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes, head of the FDA, over-ruled his own Board of Inquiry and approved aspartame. Then he went to work for Searle's Public RElations firm and refused to speak to the press for 10 years.

The FDA abuse email number is fdaabuse@hr.house.gov

We hope you'll take advantage of it and report all cases. We also ask all people to take the "no aspartame test" and send us their case history by email or snail mail:

MISSION POSSIBLE P. O. BOX 28098 Atlanta, Georgia 30358

We also ask all people to take anything with NutraSweet back to the store. Remember they cannot sell it if its open. Also, they approved this poison in baked goods even though aspartame cannot be heated because of the breakdown products.

You will run into this excuse from NutraSweet and the FDA: "But there is more methanol in oranges than in aspartame". Don't be fooled because in oranges there is always ethanol which is the classic antidote to methanol toxicity. It is in the same journal: ASPARTAME; METHANOL AND THE PUBLIC HEALTH: "Ethanol, the classic antidote for methanol toxicity, is found in natural food sources of methanol at concentrations 5 to 500,000 times that of the toxin. Ethanol inhibits metabolism of methanol and allows the body time for clearance of the toxin through the lungs and kidneys."

I was contacted by the National Academy of Child Development and told that learning disabilities are at 50%. Aspartame is frying their brain. They said they would make 10,000 copies of a packet I sent them to send to their l0,000 offices. A physician this last week told me that only in America do you see the Attention Deficit Disorder and Learning Disabilities. That's because there is so much aspartame here in this country including over the counter drugs, bakery products at the grocery and even antibiotics and prescription drugs like Questran. As Dr. Roberts says: the aspartame is causing what the drug is suppose to prevent. I have the doctors address. I believe in other countries parents are probably more concerned about their children not getting these products. Here its in too many things to avoid.

McDonalds sells Diet coke, yogart with aspartame and who knows what else. We must save the children from whats happening.

We hope McLibel Network can help.

Another, more recent mail:

Subject: Coke: Aspartame Peddler, Beaten Back In Atlanta Olympics
Date: Oct 26, 1996
From: Betty Martini 

In 1993 Mission Possible began to tell the world aspartame/NutraSweet/Equal is a neurotoxin, and 75% of the complaints on food additives received by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are against aspartame. Telling FDA an approved product is lethal is like reporting crime increases to the Mafia. Several FDA officials including Commissioner Hayes, who approved NutraSweet in l983, went to work for NutraSweet Co. or its servants. The District Attorney was hired by the Godfather.

Mission Possible had high hopes and now the dam's beginning to crack. "We're very focused on bringing consumers back to Diet Coke" said Nancy Gibson, world marketing director for aspartame. What went wrong? Blame NutraSweet, says her boss Sergio Zyman: "They are the ones at fault. NutraSweet used to be magic in a bottle. Now its boring." said Zyman in a press conference reported January 12, 1996 by The Wall Street Journal.

"Make that Poison In A Bottle and Zyman's got it right!" says Betty Martini, Mission Possible founder, "The public is wiseing up and identifying their headaches, vision loss, seizures, nausea, weight gain and 87 other FDA documented symptoms as poisoning by constant daily microdoses of aspartame in food and drink. This toxin was once listed with the Pentagon in an inventory of potential biochemical weapons, and Monsanto, owner of the NutraSweet Co. is the biggest producer of poisons on planet earth. Kill the weeds, kill the bugs, kill the customers; what's the difference? Think of it as tobacco in a bottle, and in a blue envelope for your coffee.

Recent Cracks in the Dam: Coca Cola, an official Olympics sponsor accompanied the Olympic torch parade with trucks of drinks, but they were "Out of Diet Coke". Thousands of 12-paks of Coke were stacked in front of gas stations. One had 1,900 paks by gas pumps, but not one can of Diet Coke! In Atlanta the NutraSweet trademark has disappeared from Diet Coke cans.

Martini explains: The Congressional Record of May 7, 1985 reported the "Objections of The National Soft Drink Association to the use of Aspartame in Carbonated Beverages" which warned that "soft drinks displayed may reach temperatures of 120 degrees F ... aspartame will degrade rapidly at high temperatures." It degrades into formaldehyde and formic acid, embalming fluid and ant-sting poison. But formaldehyde cocktails bring big bucks, so bright young folks like Nancy Gibson were hired to push the poison, and now 100 million Americans and consumers in more than 90 countries of the world, unknowingly practice do-it-yourself-embalming. This is wicked. Coke knows we're on to it, so Oops! There goes Diet Coke from service stations this summer!"

Tactics In Atlanta

A year before the Olympics came to Atlanta, Mission Possible activists began to first saturate the City of Atlanta with warning flyers that aspartame marketed as NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc. is a deadly neurotoxin that is causing sickness and death in more than 90 countries of the world. Return to Eden, a large organic vegetarian market here, provided a complete brochure on aspartame titled KILLER KOLA complete with doctors' reports, the FDA chart and testimonials. They were given away free by the thousands. Immediately an unusual phenomenon occurred as people suffering from a bouquet of serious medical problems heretofore undiagnosed by physicians found that on abstaining from aspartame there medical problems disappeared. Call after call came in as people with lost sight called to say they could see again, diabetics who could not keep their blood sugar under control found their diabetic condition improved, and those who thought they had fibromyalgia began to walk again. It prompted the story THE SICK WOKE UP WELL!

At the walk-a-thons of the American Diabetic Association and the Juvenile Diabetic Foundation activists walked with the diabetics giving out medical documentation that aspartame was deadly for diabetics and that the trade organizations were funded by NutraSweet (Monsanto). Further it was stated these organizations know full well about the dangers of this poison.

Elaine Fitchpatrick, Executive Director, saw that physicians had delivered complete packets of information and on request information was provided for reception rooms.

Activists from other countries began to translate our warning bulletin into different languages for visitors from other countries. It was advertised and made public that this would be Mission Possible's 1996 campaign - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD! Understanding the power of the manufacturer and the history of "funding" we knew that the only way to be successful was for the people themselves to be involved. That united in an effort to educate and warn the world they were being poisoned could make a difference. You don't have to convince the public its a poison after asking them to take the "no aspartame test" and letting them see for themselves their medical problems vanish.

The Environmental Times provided an ad during the olympics that all information on aspartame was without charge for visitors to take home to help their fellow countrymen.

What we intended to do was made public and Mission Possible activists from other cities came to help pass out warning bulletins for the Torch Route! They were amazed as consumer after consumer said: "We already know, our physician has warned us off aspartame". Many told the story of serious medical problems that had vanished. One lady said: "I was going blind and my doctor told me it was aspartame. I can see again." Another lady who knew people in NutraSweet said: "They warn their friends off aspartame because they say it triggers Alzheimers." Our warning bulletin contained publications for verification including Dr. H. J. Roberts new book DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMERS DISEASE (1 800 -814 -9800) explaining how aspartame is escalating this disease. Memory loss is one of the most common symptoms.

The olympics was a grand success. Even in packed Marta trains where it was hard to breathe warning bulletins were folded into fans and you could see the masses reading their fans. One man said: "To know aspartame is a poison all you have to do is get on the Internet!" While those in industry who benefit from the sale of this neurotoxin tried to flame the messenger the constant posts offering web sites and medical reports carried the message across the globe. The efforts of those who would suppress the truth failed because the controversy kept the issue before the public. Case histories poured in as more and more people "woke up well".

When the olympics was over one Mission Possible activist went to the airport to give packets to the athletes as they left Atlanta. Coke had capitulated as no Diet Coke was given out or sold on the Torch route. One Coke employee told an activist they had no intention of distributing it and knew in advance of our plans.

The American public as well as our friends around the world are fed up with our food supply being poisoned. We invite everyone in the world who wants to make a difference to join us in Washington, D.C. May 30 and May 31. We will come together as the Committee of 2001 and meet each other, take in ideas and organize, and meet the press. We invite doctors, scientists and the media. We want to end this insanity once and for all, and we want to educate people on what is going in. All you have to do to put your name on the list is email Robert Cohen at the email address above. Bring your suggestions and your comitment - together we can make a difference as was shown at the olympics.

Imagine it is a free country... If you could ask anyone to be President... Who would you coose?

We could do better, if we are a bit more careful, and look around a bit for someone who we want to vote for--someone who a lot of people could agree on... someone who would do it if we ask.

Walter Cronkite for President! | Franklin Thomas for vice President!
They would do it if we ask. Or if the Electors ask. Pass it on...
The Electors decide

What if just a few Electors change their vote and no one wins a majority?
