1st Letter-to-the-Editor on Chemicals (Aspartame representing Oregon!

I have submitted my 5th letter-to-the-editor in as little as 3 months (all published and one as an Op-Ed). This letter was pitched to the Editors as a continuous monthly/bi-monthly posting giving information on chemicals that plague our Nation and World. I submitted my first in the series and this was regarding Aspartame. Please see my article below and I beseech you all to research this one chemical...you cannot un-learn the truth! I love this site and am honored to be a part of a forum so dedicated to open-mindedness and diverse views - we are all the future and it will be brighter by the words we post here.

Peace and Love first.


Aspartame was discovered in the mid-1960’s by GD Searle, a Chicago drug company. It is also known as, by or under the names Nutrasweet, Equal, Acesulfame Potassium and Aminosweet and is an artificial sweetener/chemical additive. Originally approved in 1974, concerns over deficiencies/inconsistencies in GD Searle tests halted the marketing of Aspartame in dry foods until 1981, despite it being the most contested chemical additive in FDA history due to causation of brain cancer in lab animals. In 1980 the Public Board of Inquiry voted unanimously to reject the use of Aspartame until additional studies could be conducted on its ability to cause potential brain tumors. By 1983 Aspartame was put on the market for consumption and by the following year over 6,900,000 lbs was consumed by Americans. In 1988 80% of volunteered complaints regarding foods and additives dealt with Aspartame products. Please use this article to educate others and know that the ability to avoid Aspartame is within your power, whether by reading the labels of consumer products or questioning the ingredients of prescribed pharmaceuticals/medications for alternatives if possible.

Dr H. Roberts, Aspartame Opponent ~ Passes Away.

Dr H. J. Roberts, Aspartame

Dr. H. J. Roberts stated in his lectures that once free of the "diet products" and with no significant increase in exercise, his patients lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period.

Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics. We found that some physicians who believed that they had a patient with retinopathy, in fact had symptoms caused by Aspartame. The Aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control. Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are NEUROTOXIC when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance. Treating diabetes is all about BALANCE. Especially with diabetics, the Aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier and it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain, causing various levels of brain damage, seizures, depression, manic depression, panic attacks, uncontrollable anger and rage. Consumption of Aspartame causes these same symptoms in non-diabetics as well. Documentation and observation also reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and AHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when these chemicals have been removed from their diet. So called "behavior modification prescription drugs" (Ritalin and others) are no longer needed. Truth be told, they were never NEEDED in the first place!
