HERE ARE VARIOUS FEEDBACKS AND MORE MATERIAL ON THE ASPARTAME ISSUE THAT NEVER GOT
SENT TO THE EARTH RAINBOW NETWORK LIST:
Thank you for the information relating to aspartame & Nutrasweet.
However, I felt that the added comments about a "ruling elite
trying to poison the world" only seemed to diminish the weight of the
arguments/info - and may switch off some people - and didn't feel that
it was trying to engender more LOVE (rather than fear)... and it is only
through LOVE (even of *perceived* enemies) that things will TRULY
What do you think ?
Yours in Love,

AND MY RESPONSE WAS:
Thanks Percy for pointing this out. This could indeed put off some people. Yet by
introducing this aspect as an explanation for the stonewalling done by all the big
interests defending aspartame, I've been in fact trying to broaden a bit the focus
regarding the aspartame issue. It is also my gut feeling that the worldwide dissemination
of such a poisonous substance has been done by design and not only by sheer stupidity
and greed, although both of these have certainly played a major role in it.
As for loving our *perceived* enemies, I'm in agreement with you on this. Just as
the young people who stood their ground on the streets in their protest of the Vietnam
war and sang "Make love not war" while placing flowers in the rifles of the soldiers
facing them, we need to remain positively-minded and spiritually-grounded if we are
to make a dent in the overwhelming power stacked against those doing the whistleblowing
job on this and so many other issues in this world.
As someone much wiser than me once wrote:
"Someday, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides
and gravity....we shall harness the energies of love. Then, for
the second time in the history of the world, man will have
discovered fire." - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

You certainly are a global visionary. I am dropping this e-mail note to tell you
that Alex Constantine in his brilliant NutraPoison links the conspiracy to CIA, Nazi.
I found the far religious right, and a Dr. who swears the "syndicate" ruined his
career and jailed him says it is Satanism.
I'm not saying it is, but the people are as evil.
I am just writing a piece on this, and I will forward it to you when it is finished.
Rumsfeld (a powerful godfather) Orrin Hatch who helped Searle get approval; Arthur
Hull Hayes, blackmailed to sign the aspartame approval.
The most staggering blow is the loss of the free press. The press hasn't behaved
this badly since before WW2 when the French Press was sympathetic to the Nazis.
And, perhaps the genesis of this whole corrupt mess is the admittance of 20,000 Nazis
to the U.S. to work for it, under the Truman administration. There is a book, "The Search
For the Nazi Scientists" that Constantine references.
Thank you so much for recognizing the truth.
Mission Possible, San Fernando Valley
http://aspartamekills.com/http/mpvalley/ where I link breast cancer and GWS to
aspartame. It has an excellent condensation of the conspiracy, although at the time
I wrote it I had no idea how powerful was the stranglehold on the press. One tends
to think after the shock of the treachery involved wears off that maybe someone simply
has made a tragic mistake. Silly me. I sent copies of my research to Colin Powell
and Norman Schwarzkopf who both know the truth and remain silent.

Dear Jean: Thank you so much. I sent out your paper too and what I got
back was "how well it was written". I am indebted to you because so many
thousands will be helped. Interesting about the Time Magazine article.
Because they say they searched Internet for certain terms and found the
almost identical letter - the one I wrote, they were on the DORway web
site. So others reading Time decided to do the same thing, and do a search
for the original letter. Coming upon DORway they were outraged that Time
was on the site, realized it was not a hoax and didn't publish the site or
give the true facts.
People with MS hearing about the controversy and Nancy Markle letter are
doing a search on aspartame for MS and getting us. So the media who tried
to defend Monsanto is still leading victims back to us. With the media I
guess we have the good, the bad and the ugly. My husband said you can't
change them - its like trying to find a virgin in a whore house! But there
is so much good media that those articles are also being written.
Because of what you have done the whole thing is breaking open. In an
article someone sent me today, Allure, they were defending Monsanto BUT they
said something about "they say its safe, then they say its not safe". By
keeping it in the media people are getting off simply because of the
controversy!! Maybe thats why they say there is no such thing as "bad
Sure do appreciate you!

Jean this information that you are sending out on Aspertame is very valuable
in that it can help save lives and prevent alot of illnesses that are really
not illnesses but are syndromes brought on by the use of Aspertame..
My concern is not all the illnesses you will touch on, but its focus is on
the persons who have Diabetes and are using Aspartame in an attempt to cut
down on sugar.. My husband Glen has Diabetes and because it was not
diagnosed early he has severe neuropathy but with diet control he was able
within a couple of months to get off the diabetes medications.. everything
was fine, but like alot of diabetics his sense of taste has been deminished
and he used more and more diet sugar (Aspertame or Nutrasweet "the blue
packets") all the sudden his blood sugar began to climb again averaging
about 40 points over what it was, and he began to have headaches and was
sleepy all the time..I read the reports on Aspartame and decided to try
something, I stopped the Nutrasweet/Aspertame and within 24 hours his blood
sugar was almost normal again.. and the sleepiness disappeared.. then in
checking I found that some, actually more and more diabetics are/were having
a reaction to the diet sugar and it was causing their blood sugar to rise,
the exact opposite of what they were trying to accomplish by using it in the
We went back to Saccharine (the pink packets) and the sugar is not affected.
We had heard of the bladder cancer risks with this product so we talked to
our doctor and he told us he was involved in that research with the rats and
the way they injested the product and how it manifested was totally
different than what it is in humans.. so he said it was ok to use it.
Unfortunately the only soft drink on the shelf anymore is TAB a product of
the Coca Cola Bottleing Co, and that has sacchrine and it still has a tiny
bit (any is too much) Aspartame.. what we need to do is demand that Coke or
Pepsi or one of the soft drink companys make a product that does not use
either of the two products listed above.. yet is a diet product..
I had heard of a product available ONLY commercially that is a sugar but is
not recognized by the body as a sugar or a carbohydrate - this would be the
answer to a dream for diet conscious America as well as the millions of
diabetics who need to restrict their sugar....(NOTE: THIS PRODUCT EXISTS CHARLOTTE
AND IT IS CALLED STEVIA - IT IS A GREEN POWDER THAT COMES FROM THE STEVIA PLANT,
AND SO IT IS ENTIRELY NATURAL. IT IS SOLD IN NATURAL FOODSTORES - A TINY BIT IS ENOUGH
TO SWEETEN YOUR FOOD OR BEVERAGE, ALTHOUGH IT HAS AN INTENSE, PECULIAR TASTE WHICH NEEDS
SOME GETTING USED TO IT. THE ASPARTAME LOBBY HAS TRIED TO BAN IT IN THE STATES FOR
FEAR OF COMPETITION. AND IT SAYS IT ALL!)
I called Atlanta Georgia and talked to COKE and they were not interested.. all they
want to do is sell product.. (OF COURSE ASPARTAME IS ADDICTIVE!) they also said that
there was/is no danger in using Aspertame/Nutrasweet.. that they had tested the product.. what scares me is that this product is being routinely given to pre-schoolers and
school children in the form of sugar free Kool Aid as well as Jello and puddings..(WHAT
A SHAME AND CRIME INDEED!) it is in more and more products and you are not even aware it is there, including vitamin pill coatings for children and ice cream and cookies
etc.. pregnant women are using diet drinks to keep down their weight, there babies
MAYBE IT'S TIME WE BEGIN CAMPAIGNING TO INSTITUTE A MASSIVE COMSUMER BOYCOTT OF SOME
KEY TARGET PRODUCTS TO FORCE COMPANIES SUCH AS COKE OR PEPSI AND OTHERS TO TAKE ASPARTAM-LACED
PRODUCTS OUT OF THE MARKET. THIS STRATEGY WAS SUCCESSFULLY USED AGAINST THE GIANT NESTLÉ TO FORCE THEM TO STOP AGRESSIVELY PUSHING FOR THEIR INFANT FORMULAS INSTEAD
OF BREAST-FEEDING IN THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES.
IF RESULTS IS WHAT COUNTS IN THIS FIGHT, LOWER SALES IS ANY ARGUMENT THEY WILL LISTEN
TO... MAYBE THE SUGAR INDUSTRY WOULD ACCEPT TO UNDERWRITE SUCH A CAMPAIGN - I'M KIDDING!
THIS INDUSTRY HAS THEIR FAIR SHARE OF BLAME FOR DESTROYING THE ENVIRONMENT (FOR SUGARCANE CULTIVATION IN THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES) AND MAKING PEOPLE SICK WITH TOO MUCH
SUGAR IN TOO MANY FOOD PRODUCTS.
What's interesting is that most people using diet drinks to help with weight,
will find that they do not lose weight until they get off the diet drinks
and go back to the real thing.. with sugar.. it will satisfy you more and
will help with thirst, something that diet drinks fail to do.
Pilots are having seizures increasingly often after injesting diet sodas
which is forcing the FAA to forbid that they drink any diet products before
This is one of the most dangerous products on the market, the FDA knows this
and still has not banned its use or sale... We are not being given the truth
by the manufacturers of this product or the results of testing and what it
does when it is ingested in the human body..
They say that the GULF WAR SYNDROME is in part being traced to Aspertame in
DIET PEPSI... apparently Pepsi gave thousands of cases of Diet Pepsi to the
military for the troops in the Gulf War.. these sat outside in 100+ degree
temperatures which was the problem, when Aspartame reaches a certain
temperature it converts to Formaldhyde and Methenol so when the troops drank
Pepsi they were injesting these two by-products and we all know what they use
Formaldhyde and Methenol for.. This can be verified by the fact that very
few troops on the front lines got sick, it was almost entirely the support troops,
the ones who had access to the diet soft drinks who got sick..
Sorry to have gone on and on, I do not know if you plan to post responses to
your Aspartame information but please feel free to post this.

February 6, 1999
I thought it might be useful to share examples of Aspartame poisoning that
people will recognize and understand. I know many people must be tired of
this thread over the years, but the threat to human health is real. By
mentioning lupus and fibromyalgia, etc., and the more complex diseases of
which Aspartame may be one cause, the average person can be left saying,
"Oh, not me...!" and therefore not recognizing the most common symptoms.
The first sign of my mother's poisoning was her complaint of blurring
vision. Then it was weak muscles and her legs giving out on her while
waiting for the bus. Changes in vision and speech, confusion and inability
to think, and anxiety attacks should set off the alarm bells. We blamed her
weight, her medication, we blamed everything else, including her, but no one
figured out it was the Aspartame. Though I'd heard about the poisoning, it
just never occurred to me for a minute that these symptoms could have been
the caused by it.
I posted the note below to the newsgroups a few months ago when I came
across people doubting the legitimacy of the risks involved in its
consumption. It's followed by Dorway's 92 Symptom list and another woman's
Aspartame Poisoning _ Symptoms
Author: joanne <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Excuse me, may I interrupt here? My mother has been on many medications
because she is mentally ill. When she started developing pains in her legs
and slurred speech we took her to the doctor. He didn't know what was wrong
with her and we soon changed her medication as I was blaming that. Soon
after she descended the staircase into mania like that which I had never
seen, and hope never to experience again. Soon I found find out that ALL
of the symptoms she experienced were being caused by massive, long-term
consumption of Aspartame.
First, her muscles started going (she started falling down alot) and anxiety
attacks became a daily event. I was seeking help for her as I saw a
deepening depression that I did not like, increased irritibility, heard her
complaining daily of dizziness and the right side of her face was fallen and
experiencing some kind of paralysis. She obviously was suffering fatigue as
we couldn't get her off the couch. After a few months she became
My mom started staying up all night yelling, pounding, smashing much more
violently than usual saying that my grandfather was going to kill her, so
she was preparing to kill him in self-defence. I immediately started
fighting with doctors to get her into a mental hospital. I am telling you
this very personal information because I want you to KNOW that this
possibility is very real and I am not exaggerating the details. This is
just how it was. After three months of battling with doctors I finally got
her into a mental hospital, not from her illness, but from taking too much
Aspartame. She was in the hospital for over a month and guess what? They
didn't serve Aspartame. Within 3 days of being there, my mom was back to
normal (except for the brain tumour). I just couldn't believe the change in
her behaviour. It was almost instant.
At the time, everyone in my family thought she was nuts, except me. My mom
had been stable all of my 32 years and I knew these symptoms were being
caused by "something" though I didn't know what. I thought it was the
long-term use of her medication. After four years of trying to find a
needle in a haystack and deeply regretting changing her medication, I found
a site which brought it all home. The site was by Mary Stoddard, a nice
lady who's devoted her life to educating people on this chemical. I called
my mother at 6 a.m. and _very quietly_ read the page to her. She
immediately went to the toilet and flushed the sweeteners down the drain.
I did not have to argue with her, I simply read her the information which
was pretty conclusive in and of itself. Then I phoned the woman in the
States to thank her as she may well have saved my mother's life.
I thank God every day for the Net or I never would have figured it out. The
symptoms were just too strange. By the way, Mary Stoddard's site is at:
The list below doesn't mention tumours in the temporal lobe, though it does
mention brain cancer..; ) It lists many other symptoms of which people
should be aware. The symptoms my mother suffered seem pretty common so
please make note of them. If a member of your family develops a brain
tumour in the right temporal lobe, question them on their intake of
Aspartame. If they start complaining of blurring vision and start slurring
their speech, this is a dead give-away. Remember, it took me four years to
figure out what was wrong with my mom. Please don't go through that. And
don't bother trying to change them, just hand them the information and let
them learn it for themselves. I've learned the hard way that harping does
not work. Maybe print off the information and offering it to them with the
hope of their recognizing their symtoms might help them willingly part the
sweeteners. Also, Mary's questionnaire is at:
http://web2.airmail.net/marystod/question.html and she gladly answers all
questions, so please feel free to ask her.
Since this happened to my mother, I have been an active proponent against
Aspartame in the form of letter writing and educating the public on its
potential side-effects. It took many years of consumption and huge doses to
bring my 220 lb mother to her knees. It would take far less for a smaller
human being. Just be forewarned that these effects are real and happening
to real people, like my mom and my family.
Blessings and peace,
Joanne M. Stephenson

>>A Web of Deceit
>>Online advice from TIME health columnist Christine Gorman
I read this article today - they even used (under the photo) a line directly from
a Monsanto ad campaign in support of their aspartame "Aspartame sweetens your life
without shortening it".
The *real* deceit is done by such a pro-business mouthpiece article from the elite-owned
If you've read my entire email you printed out on Aspartame (now posted on my site
at http://www.cybernaute.com/earthconcert2000) I sent you Ron, you have ample proofs
there that it's for real
This is not overblown. It is underblown!
This in fact amounts to a massive poisoning of millions of innocent people, adults
and children alike, with untold suffering and a *real* web of deceit from the government
and industry to hide their crime.
If you prefer to believe this Time article and not research the issue on your own
- by exploring the www.dorway.com site or reading some of the stories of hundreds
of people who got much better after stopping all intake of any aspartame-laced food
product (such as those below), then it's your own choice.
Most "reasonable" people who don't have any serious health problems because of aspartame
- or who don't have this issue in their face through suffering relatives - can conveniently
choose to ignore this thing and play the age-old ostrich game or be like the 3 little fabled monkeys - hands on your eyes, hands over your ears and hands upon
your mouth -- I've seen nothing, heard nothing and won't say a word on this.
I'd even say it is a fairly frequent reaction to this issue. When I tried to get my
sister who is a heavy drinker of Diet soft drinks to simply look at the facts, she
didn't want to hear about it. She just don't want to believe it. She has been completely
addicted to the stuff for years and does not seem to care much about her health.
PostScript note: Well! Good news! After reading all the correct revealing information
about aspartame in a mainstream newspaper from Quebec - that incidentally received
plenty of Aspartame-related material by email from me... - my sister has decided
to heed my recommendation and has stopped drinking diet sodas and feels much better as
a result ;-)
Just like those addicted smokers who always come up with the example of such and such
old person in his sixties still happily smoking as a proof that all the claims that
cigarette breeds cancer are false, aspartame/diet-drink addicted people who are still
reasonably in good health have the same reaction.
But those who are severely ill and are trying to figure out what's causing them all
the troubles they have are sure more receptive to finding out about aspartame.
And this aspartame issue is just one amongst a number of other stupid and criminally
poisonous chemicals that people are force-fed today.
So, what do you think?

Hi.My name is Kevin and I would like to share my experience w/ aspartame.
Some time in '93 I found out I had Diabetes.The doctors told me to stop w/ the sugar
and use Nutrasweet instead.I did this and in a few months.I began to feel "out of
it",kind of like being in a very vivid dream.I just thought I wasn't getting much
sleep.So I didn't bother doing anything about it,I thought the feeling would just go away.I
went for about a year before finally going to see a doctor. They did a CT scan and
then a MRI and found swelling on the brain.I had two biopsies done.They found out
I had a large brain tumor(grade 2 astrocytoma on the right temporal lobe)I went through
6 weeks of radiation to shrink the tumor.They said this type of tumor will come back.(I
dont think it will because i dont take nutrasweet anymore) Later on I found out that
Aspartame caused brain tumors.I stopped using it.I now find out I will probably have
my symptoms forever now because there is permanent damage to the nerves in the brain
from the tumor.I am also unable to work because i black out,get dizzy spells, i am
confused most of the time, i hallucinate,cannot concentrate, etc,etc,etc...all because
of some stupid thing to make things taste sweet!
NOTE: I DON'T HAVE TIME TO CHECK ANY OF THESE CLAIMS BUT I PASS IT ON ANYWAY AS IT
MIGHT HELP SOMEONE ELSE IF THIS ALL TURNS OUT TO BE TRUE. KEEP US POSTED!

dangers of this toxic substance. Is anyone aware of the total cure?? I
am . I ingested the stuff for two four month periods about five years
apart and realized the blindness part was true as many of the other
symptoms . I was found legally blind the day before going to a free two
day lecture on alternative healing in Boston Mass.. About forty minutes
into the lecture we paired up to practice the new procedures on each
other. I received and gave four treatments that day. After the first day
i could see again ,read and remember,joint pains were gone, and had a
major attitude change.
During the almost five years that I have been practicing I have
seen many results that would have been called miracles before having
taken the class. Even many clients have returned to there doctors, who
say,they have never seen the reversal of a degenerative disease , or the
problem has totally disappeared . I have had clients who have had no
luck with specialists from many parts of the world and with this
treatment have recovered.All diseases and ill conditions have been
reversed and regenerated by this treatment, and many instantly. myself
