Subject: Chronic Fatigue Cover-up
Date: Fri, 4 Feb 2000
I read your post to Jean Hudon. Chronic fatigue in the vets who have Gulf War Syndrome and chronic fatigue in the civilian population are from the same source--aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet)
All of us in Mission Possible, the organization that is warning the world via the WWW that NutraSweet is a neurotoxin is well aware of this cover-up and of the shifting views of what is causing Gulf War Syndrome. 280 federally funded scientists and doctors have supposedly been working for 6 years and have come up with zilch. I think they went to Disneyland with the NIH crew.
Betty Martini who founded MP talked with Gulf vets who told her they had nothing to drink but water and diet drinks, colas, Kool-aid and they drank it all day long.
In my article, "Artificial Sweetener Aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet) at http://aspartamekills.com I list the 92 symptoms the FDA was forced to reveal under the Freedom of Information Act in a column next to the Gulf War symptoms. They are almost identical.
Aspartame poisoning mimics other diseases such as MS and lupus. Dr. Jim Bowen says that chronic fatigue is one of the only 'new' diseases caused by this deadly molecule.
Check out http://www.presidiotex.com www.dorway.com www.dorway.com or write to me.
NOTE FROM JEAN: NOT TO SAY THAT ASPARTAME IS NOT TO BLAME FOR NUMEROUS AILMENTS PLAGUING PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD, BUT I HEARD A REMARKABLE NEWS ON THE RADIO AND ON TV YESTERDAY HERE IN QUEBEC. A CANADIAN MALE SOLDIER WHO TOOK PART TO THE GULF WAR AND WHO CAME DOWN WITH THE GULF WAR SYNDROME (A COMPLEX SET OF VARIOUS DEBILITATING AILMENTS DIFFERING FROM ONE PERSON TO ANOTHER AND TRANSMISSIBLE EVEN TO CHILDREN FATHERED AFTER THE WAR) HAD REQUESTED THAT HIS BODY BE AUTOPSIED AND CAREFULLY ANALYZED AFTER HIS DEATH IN AN ATTEMPT TO FIND OUT THE EXACT CAUSE OF THIS SYNDROME. RESEACHERS FOUND ENOUGH "LOW GRADE" URANIUM IN HIS BODY TO EXPLAIN IT. THIS "WEAKENED" FORM OF URANIUM WAS USED DURING THE GULF WAR AT THE CORE OF THE DEEP PENETRATION GUIDED MISSILES AND BOMBS USED TO DESTROY SADDAM HUSSEIN'S TANKS AND BUNKERS. THE RESULTING DISPERSION THROUGH THE ATMOSPHERE OF THIS RADIOACTIVE URANIUM DID CONTAMINATE THE SOLDIERS AND SEEMS TO EXPLAIN THE GULF WAR SYNDROME. THEY DID NOT MENTION IN THE NEWS THE EFFECTS ON THE LOCAL POPULATION IN IRAK THOUGH... SIMILAR AMMOS WERE USED DURING THE WAR IN KOSOVO BY THE U.S. AIR FORCE. THEY SHOULD BE BANNED FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH (just like the organochlorines mentioned in the next feedback), JUST AS FOR THE LAND MINES RECENLTY, AS THIS SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASES FOR GENERATIONS TO COME THE LEVEL OF RADIOACTIVITY IN THE ATMOSPHERE WE ALL BREATHE.

Subject: Re: New series of feedbacks, Neurotoxins, etc.
Thanks for the input on pine needles and rock infusion for FMS. Glad it
worked for your friend. As for neurotoxins, I think we should be aware of
the vast number of them in our environment, in foods through the soil and in
air. It takes one year for DDT from the Caribbean to make it over here to
North America through air transport. That's why it's so important to support
the work of the UN Environment Programme in its efforts to BAN all
organochlorines from the face of the earth, including DDT and its entire
class of chemicals, also known as POPs (Persistent Organic Pollutants), not
just allow them to be "controlled". We have all learned the hard way, some
things cannot be "controlled", like pollen from genetically altered crops,
and organochlorine chemicals (POPs) which bioaccumulate in the food chain and
remain for up to 100 yrs., and cross the entire globe without hindrance
through air and water. Be on the look out for news on further developments
of the UNEP Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, signed by over 100
nations last year in Montreal. These nations will in the not distant future,
be asked to commit to implementing it, and many dont want to ban, only to
"control" these deadly chemicals! Such a "half-measure" will never work.
Thanks for fighting the good fight!

Dear Jean, The below comment was in one of your recent
feedbacks on Feb 4. Would you please send this individual
my email address and ask her to contact me. I was diagnosed
with CFIDS/Fibromyalgia in 1993 after many years of
affliction. The medical community has drained me
financially and helped little. I joined the alternative
community years ago and found out about aspartame and have
always avoided it. Alternatives have helped me but only
partially. I would like to try her infusion as I've not
received any intuitive insight for myself. I would be most
Thank you for all the time and effort you put into your
messages. They are so full of information, spiritual
guidance and many other things, including food for thought.

given It is my belief that you are a forerunner of a
beautiful future when we will all help each other and you
are showing us one of the ways.

AND MY RESPONSE WAS - IN CASE OTHER PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW THIS:
Unfortunately my friend does not understand English well enough to be able to correspond with you. She has been suffering like you for years (she is 47) of the Fibromyalgia Syndrome (she also believes aspartame triggered it as she ate lots of chocolate in which aspartame is certainly present) and could not find succour anywhere, certainly NOT from any physician. But gradually, through lots of spiritual work (frequent and long meditations and connection with powerfully healing life-forces) the worst of her symptoms gradually subsided and were much more tolerable. Yet she still became exhausted following moderate physical activities and could not work full time on a continued basis like most people.
Compounding this, she did not have good, normal night sleep and was as a result frequently tired. The solution for that problem was listening to a special music CD with delta wave sound frequencies designed to induce a state of relaxation and thus a better sleep. It is a musician from Quebec that produced this a few years ago and it is remarkably popular and efficient for thousands of people here (to find out how to order this CD entitled "Sommeil profond, Ondes Delta" (Deep sleep, Delta Waves) write to firstname.lastname@example.org). My friend thinks this CD has been very helpful at the beginning to smooth out her anxieties and to sleep better but she no longer listens to this CD. But the "final solution" to the Fibromyalgia Syndrome came intuitively to my friend, as explained earlier. I suggest you simply try her "discovery" to see if it works for you.
I just phoned her to get the exact recipe and here it is:
She collects green needles directly from any kind of pine tree (red of gray), cutting the end of the branches (no bigger than the thickness of a finger) to get both the wood parts and the needles all together. She gathers enough to have a supply for a long enough time - she keeps them at room temperature in plactic bags but said it's better to keep them in a freezer (as her mother does) for better freshness as her supply has dried and the resulting infusion is less concentrated and thus less potent. She then cuts the branches in 2 or 3 inch long segments and boils them in water for 60 minutes (she buys demineralized water at the drug store for this but she also used spring water at the beginning) adding twice the volume of water above about 2 inches of needles and branches at the bottom of a pot. She adds a couple of round, granit-like 1 inch pebbles she collected in a spring as she thinks it helps take out some bitterness from the infusion (she always uses the same pebbles). She lets the infusion cool for 10 hours stirring the mixture (and pressing it with a potato-masher) from time to time to extract as much "juice" as possible. She then filters the infusion through a coffee filter (a white paper cone) or a piece of clean cotton and keeps it in a glass bottle in the refrigerator for no longer than 2 weeks (the color gradually changes everyday) before making more.
She drinks 1 once of it (she weights 115 lbs so if you weight more, you might want to adjust the quantity accordingly), 4 times a days, 10 to 15 minutes before breakfast, lunch, dinner and before going to bed. It seems to be important to stick to 4 times a day, no less, because she felt the symptoms coming back a bit recenlty after taking it 3 instead of 4 times a day. It took 2 weeks for her to begin to feel a positive difference, and after 2 months of gradual improvement she felt so great that she could resume a normal life. But she must continue to take it everyday.
She thinks this pine-based infusion works because it has been proven (as she read in a magazine afterwards) to be a powerful anti-oxydant. She also mentioned that historical researches have also shown that the aboriginal people (the American Indians) also used to make potent medicine for all kinds of ailments out of pine needles. She recommends it to everyone as it can apparently improve anyone's health and well being, no matter how healthy a person can think he/she is. It certainly worked wonders for her.
She also mentioned that if you cannot find any pine tree in your area, there are apparently pine-based supplements available (some of them named "pycogenol") in drug stores or in health food stores. One of her friends with similar problems tried "pycogenol" tablets but she apparently did not entirely get rid of all her symptoms yet although there has been some significant improvements. My friend believes that those tablets are probably less concentrated in what has the beneficial effects in pine needles. So she sticks to her home-made preparation.
So I hope this information will be helpful to you. If you have any more questions, ask it from me and if you eventually get good results, let me know so I can tell my friend and others.

The RW staff
Responsible Wealth National Conference
"Economic Boom for Whom? Building Roads to Shared Prosperity"
April 7-8, Boston
Keynote Speaker: Professor Robert Reich,
Former US Secretary of Labor
The prosperity of todays economic boom is not being shared. The new wealth
created has overwhelmingly gone into the pockets of wealthy asset owners,
while wage earners have lost ground economically. This trend is damaging
our social fabric and undermining our democracy.
The Responsible Wealth conference will look at what we can do as business
leaders, investors, and professionals to reverse this trend. What are the
rules of the economy that are feeding this trend? Which specific rules must
be changed? How can we use our unique voice to push for changes? The 2-day
conference will feature hands-on workshops where participants will actively
work together to plan actions for the coming year and beyond.
Who should attend? If you are among the top 5% of income earners and/or
asset holders in the US (i.e. over $135,000 household income and/or over
$650,000 net assets), and are concerned about the effects of growing
economic inequality, and would like to get involved in actions to promote
broader prosperity, please join us!
Friday evening dinner with keynote address by Robert Reich, former US
Secretary of Labor and currently Professor at Brandeis University.
Juliet Schor, author of The Overspent American and The Overworked American,
will talk on "The Costs of Inequality."
Arnold Hiatt, former CEO of Stride Rite shoe company and an active advocate
for campaign finance reform, will talk on "Returning Values to Business."
Plenary: "Rethinking Business's Approach to Problem Solving", with Amory and
Hunter Lovins. co-founders of the Rocky Mountain Institute, and co-authors,
with Paul Hawken, of Natural Capitalism.
Post-Conference "Economic Justice Revival" featuring Rep. Barbara Lee
(D-CA), co-chair of the Progressive Caucus. Lee and others will outline the
legislative agenda of the Progressive Caucus. The session will also feature
musical and cultural entertainment.

HYPERSPACE, TIME TRAVEL, AND DIMENSIONAL PORTALS will be DR. MICHIO KAKU'S
lecture/workshop subjects at THE PROPHETS CONFERENCE ~ SANTA FE, coming
together in the distinctive and picturesque setting of Santa Fe, New
Mexico, during the weekend of April 14-16, 2000. Dr. Kaku will be joining
an exceptional visiting faculty made up of Gregg Braden, Dr. Edgar
Mitchell, Joe Firmage, James Redfield, Dr. Robert Anton Wilson, Oriah
Mountain Dreamer, James Twyman, Nicki Scully, Salle Merrill Redfield, and
Morning Sky (complete information available at
Dr. Michio Kaku is an internationally recognized authority in theoretical
physics and also the environment. He holds the Henry Semat Professorship in
Theoretical Physics at the City College and the Graduate Center of the City
University of New York. His goal is to help complete Einstein's dream of a
"theory of everything," a single equation, perhaps no more than one inch
long, which will unify all the fundamental forces in the universe. He has
lectured around the world and his Ph.D. level textbooks are required
reading at many of the top physics laboratories. He has written 9 books;
his last two books, Hyperspace and Visions, became international
best-sellers, and have been widely translated into different languages. He
hosts a weekly hour-long radio program called Explorations on several
stations around the country, and his commentaries on science can be heard
on 60-radio stations nation-wide.
Dr. Kaku graduated from Harvard in 1968, summa cum laude, and number one in
his physics class. He received his Ph.D. from the Univ. of Calif. at
Berkeley Radiation Laboratory in 1972. He held a lectureship at Princeton
University in 1973. He then joined the faculty at the City Univ. of New
York, where he has been a professor of theoretical physics for 25 years. He
has been a visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Study at
Princeton, and also New York University. He has published over 70 physics
articles in physics journals, which include superstring theory,
supergravity, supersymmetry, and hadronic physics. He is the co-founder of
string field theory. He also wrote the first paper on conformal
supergravity and the breakdown of supersymmetry at high temperatures.
Dr. Kaku has appeared on Larry King Show (radio as well as CNN-TV),
Nightline, PBS's Nova and Innovation, 60 Minutes, Good Morning America and
CNN-News. He was featured on the PBS documentaries: Einstein Revealed,
Stephen Hawking's Universe, and Science Odyssey, the Learning Channel's
Future Fantastic, as well as the Science Fiction Channel. He will appear on
the Discovery Channel's Science of the impossible. On radio, he has
appeared on NPR's Science Friday and also BBC-International. He has
appeared on over 600 radio programs around the country including numerous
interviews on The Art Bell Show. He has been quoted in the New York Times,
Los Angeles Times, U.S. News and World Report, BBC, Sunday London Times,
London Daily Telegraph, Boston Globe, Seattle Times, S.F. Chronicle, San
Diego Union, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, and the Oregonian.
In a recent interview with Amazon.Com Dr. Kaku remarked that: "As a kid, I
read a lot of science fiction, like Isaac's Asimov's Foundation series, but
was frustrated that many of the concepts (like hyperspatial "jumps") were
never given serious explanations. That's one reason why I became a
theoretical physicist, so I would be able to understand the equations
behind general relativity and the quantum theory. As an adult, I realized
that it was possible for serious scientists like Carl Sagan to express the
fascination and excitement of path-breaking research without compromising
His book, Hyperspace, was reviewed on the cover of the New York Times,
Philadelphia Inquirer, and S.F. Chronicle Book Review sections, and was
profiled in a four-page spread in U.S. News and World Report. It was voted
one of the best science books of 1994 by both the Washington Post and the
New York Times. Referring to Visions, Kirkus Review wrote that Dr. Kaku "is
a worthy successor to the late Carl Sagan." For two weeks, the Sunday
London Times excerpted chapters from Visions in its book section.
Dr. Kaku is also committed to nuclear disarmament. He spoke before a
million people at the June 12, 1982 Peace Rally in Central Park, the
largest peace demonstration in the history of the U.S. He is on the
National Advisory Board of National Sane/Freeze, the largest peace group in
During The Prophets Conference ~ Santa Fe, Dr. Kaku will join a lively
panel along with Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Joe Firmage, James Redfield, Dr.
Robert Anton Wilson, and Gregg Braden, with moderation by G. Cody Johnson.
The title of this truly unprecedented discussion between some of today's
leading minds is "Reinventing the Human Story Through Science and Spirit:
Physics, Metaphysics and Novel Phenomena."
A fully SOLD OUT conference is a Strong Possibility. The number of
available seats in the James A. Little Theater in Santa Fe is only 385.
The recent Prophets Conference ~ Port Townsend drew an attendance of well
over that for the full conference. Be sure to register early to guarantee

Harder2000 Update and News
I AM engaged in enrolling the US public in the possibility of taking back our political power through collective action. Dr. Heather Anne Harder's campaign for the Presidency is not just about Heather. It is about seeing our country returned to a system that honors the Constitution and all citizens. This is what most of us want. I feel the more you learn about Heather's candidacy, the more excited you will become! You can read about Dr. Harder and the "Campaign for Citizen Participation" at www.harder2000.com.
The time for all of us to take a stand is NOW. By co-creating a groundswell of support for a higher-consciousness candidate with refreshing integrity and honesty, we will be sending a message to our nation's leaders. Support for Heather can still win the Democratic nomination as well as respect for her views. Please read the Q&A section of the web site to understand why Heather chose to run on the Democratic ticket.
In the recent New Hampshire primary, Dr. Harder placed fourth out of 15 Democratic candidates. This is exciting! And it's only a beginning.
Please help by reading the web site and forwarding this letter to your friends. If every 1 tells 3, then the Harder2000 email campaign will blossom. Heather has volunteered to be the candidate. We need to create the support. It's not about agreeing with every position statement. It's about supporting someone who wants to see the American public empowered in the political process again.
This first contact will be short and sweet. There never before in history has been an election in which email was a major factor. You may help the Harder2000 campaign in many ways. Volunteers of all skill levels are needed. Funds are needed. Speaking engagements for Heather are needed. Media interviews are needed. Most of all, just networking the news about Heather through email could win her the election!
If you can volunteer in any way, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and let her know how to contact you and what state you live in.
We will be publishing a weekly newsletter with campaign updates and requests. Since you are receiving this note, you will automatically receive it. Simple removal instructions will be provided. If you know others who would like to receive the Harder2000 campaign weekly news update, please have them email their addresses to email@example.com. I would like to see 1,000,000 people receiving the newsletter by May.
Thank you very much for reading this and joining the "Campaign for Citizen Participation."

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for, and if you dream of meeting your hearts longing.
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon.
I want to know if you have touched the heart of your sorrow, if you have been opened by lifes betrayals, or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstacy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes, without cautioning us to be realistic, or to remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn't interest me whether the story you are telling is true.
I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself, if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul.
I want to know if you can be faithful and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see beauty even when it is not pretty...everyday,
and if you can source your life from its own presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours or mine, and stand on the shore of life of a silver moon and shout....YES
It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up after a night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done for the children.
It doesn't interest me who you are or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn't interest me where or with whom you have studied.
