Here in Hawaii, we are happy. Rep. Mele Carroll has introduced Aspartame Resolution House Concurrent Resolution 128.

Mele is Chair of the House Hawaiian Affairs Committee, and she is a member of the House Health Committee; the Chair and the Vice-Chair of that committee have both cosigned the resolution, along with 19 other representatives.

The possibility of passing this resolution is very good, even with the inevitable onslaught of lying corporate lobbyists from the aspartame corporations, both Ajinomoto and the US users, like Coca Cola, Wrigley's, Merisant, etc.

As opposed to Resolutions asking the FDA to rescind approval, which are still in the works, the bills to ban this deadly artificial sweetener from the State of Hawaii have been effectively killed by Senator Ige and Representative Yamane declining to schedule hearings for them, but
they are not resting in peace.

The remaining House and Senate resolutions, which ask the FDA to rescind aspartame's FDA approval, are living hope that a lawful measure will be eventually enacted in Hawaii that will position other communities worldwide to remove this supertoxin from thousands of processed food, "diet" beverages and pharmaceutical products consumed by unsuspecting and already ill victims who have no idea that it will be metabolized as methanol, formaldehyde, and two unessential amino acids which have both become neurotoxic.

We citizens in Hawaii have begun a collection of victim reports that include death contributed to aspartame ingestion. We have also released a Citizens' Declared Public Health Crisis/Alert, as a majority of Hawaii's doctors and the Hawaii Dept. of Health have not yet been trained to even begin to recognize the hidden and misdiagnosed illnesses that are part of the omnipresent Rumsfeld's Disease Epidemic.

These aspartame victim reports will be presented in due course to the Interim Legislative Health Committees and the Hawaii Dept. of Health; the Attorney General of Hawaii, and the Attorney General of the United States.

Aspartame's days are numbered, and the credibility of the manufacturers andthe corporations who add it to products are wobbling badly.

The FDA just approved an all natural product - stevia- which will replace aspartame when it falls. It should be a very simple matter for the manufactures to just switch the ingredients.

However, that will not absolve them of the fiscal and legal responsibilities for their many victims, but that is more a matter forAttorney General Mark Bennett to ponder and discuss with the other AttorneysGeneral on the Mainland.

We are certain that the absence of aspartame will not in any way worsen the present recession, as many serious diseases will cease; our good doctors will not be put out of much work.

Kudos, honors, and deep appreciation for Representative Mele Carrol, Senator Suzanne Chun-Oakland, and the other alert legislators here in Hawaii who are actively supporting these imperative and long overdue Resolutions, plus a very special thanks to Stephen Fox of Santa Fe, New Mexico and to Dr. Betty Martini of Atlanta, Georgia, Founder of Mission Possible International, who are literally working day and all night to eradicate this insidious substance through education and through appropriate political pressure on the FDA to rescind aspartame's approval.

The next generation will remember them for saving their brains, as well as the enlightened Hawaii Legislators who recognized the merits of our efforts.
