The Honorable Kyle Yamashita, Chairman
Hawaii House Committee on Economic Development and Business
Dear Representative Yamashita,
I hope that Representative Josh Green's resolution can soon be heard in your committee creating a task force to study and discuss aspartame. In the past year all the large food chains in the UK such as Sainsburys, Marks & Spencer and even Walmart ASDA have removed aspartame.
Simply changing to a different safe sweetener will only enhance economics and save money in Hawaii from a different standpoint. For instance, you have a large epidemic of diabetes, and aspartame not only can precipitate diabetes, but simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, destroys the optic nerve, causes diabetics to go into convulsions and even interacts with insulin. The free methyl alcohol that is liberated from this excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug is even causing diabetics to lose limbs.
This is all explained in detail in the 1000 page medical text on the global epidemic, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic by diabetic specialist, H.J. Roberts, M.D. Rep Green has a copy and can show it to you.
Aspartame is certainly responsible for raging diabetic epidemics and can kill the victims. In fact, it triggers an irregular heart rhythm and interacts with all cardiac medication. It damages the cardiac conduction system and causes sudden death. We believe many of the athlete deaths have been caused by aspartame, and Doctors H. J. Roberts, Russell Blaylock and James Bowen have written articles as an alert to athletes and pilots in particular.
Another epidemic occurring in Hawaii is suicide. This also could be partially related to aspartame because the molecule has 50% phenylalanine. This lowers the seizure threshold and depletes serotonin. Lowered serotonin triggers manic depression or bipolar, suicidal tendencies, panic attacks, paranoia, schizophrenic, mood swings and even schizophrenia. Aspartame interacts with virtually all drugs because of damage to the mitochondria or life of the cell. The world experts on aspartame have many times said mental hospitals are full of patients that are simply aspartame victims.
Hawaii has a lot to gain by beginning to discuss evidence of this in Josh Green's proposes task force, especially from the standpoint of consumer protection. Aspartame was never proven safe, and I'm sure your committee will be given copies of the documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World; this DVD includes James Turner, Attorney, explaining how Don Rumsfeld got this poison on the market after the FDA had not only attempted to have the company indicted for fraud but also revoked the petition for approval.
Recently, even Coke in Mexico agreed not to use cyclamate because of consumer outrage, as cyclamates have been off the market for many years in the USA. It was simply a matter of reformulation. In fact, Coke is now working with a company to add a new sweetener made from Stevia. They see the writing on the wall.
Russell Blaylock, M.D., Neurosurgeon, wrote in his book, Health & Nutrition Secrets To Save Your Life: "So in the case of diet drinks in aluminum cans, the very toxic brain aluminum fluoride compound co-exists with multiple toxins found in aspartame, thus creating the most powerful government approved toxic soup imaginable." He also wrote, "Early experiments using low, medium and high doses with aspartame all found dramatic tumor increases in test animals. These included brain, pancreas, and breast tumors, and tumors of the testes, thyroid and prostate. Experiments also demonstrated a direct correlation between intake quantity and tumor incidence."
Dr. Blaylock also stated that "Aspartame also contains methanol, which breaks down in the body into formaldehyde and formic acid. Formaldehyde had been shown to accumulate near DNA, causing serious damage that is accumulative. That means that drinking even one diet cola a day can cause formaldehyde buildup in cells, so that the amount of the toxin increases daily." He wrote this before the Ramazzini studies showed that aspartame is a multi-potential carcinogen even in small amounts and can be passed on to the offspring. If it were arsenic in question here, there would be no questions. In reality, Dr. Blaylock said in a lecture, "Understand the reactions to aspartame are not allergic but toxic like arsenic and cyanide."
Consider how much is a life worth. Aspartame has destroyed families. The damage to the mitochondria and hypothalamus has triggered male sexual dysfunction and ruins female response. It's an abortifacient and teratogen (causes birth defects); millions of babies have been murdered in their mother's wombs by this poison. Birth defects such as autism are rampant, as well as ADD and ADHD triggered by aspartame.
Aspartame violates adulteration statutes, the Delaney Amendment which forbid putting anything in food that causes cancer and interstate commerce laws. Two Ramazzini Studies peer reviewed by 7 world experts prove aspartame to be a multi potential carcinogen, even in small amounts, and can be passed on to the offspring if the mother uses aspartame.
I'm happy to provide any information you might need and look forward to being of service. Below my signature is a letter from Dr. Arthur Evangelist, a former FDA Investigator, exposing the dangers of this neurotoxin.
