Animal feeding studies of aspartame show statistically significant, dose dependent increases of breast and kidney cancers in test animals even though these animals are known to be more resistant to the toxicity of methanol than humans. The Centers for Disease Control SEER program, which monitors the wellness of the US population, has published data showing an alarming increase in these and other important cancers that mirrors the popularity and consumption of aspartame over the last 30 years.

The real question is, why hasn't this overwhelming commonality of logic and fact been sufficient evidence to remove aspartame from the marketplace? Considerable evidence against the safety of aspartame comes directly from its regulatory file history, stored in the vaults of the US Food and Drug Administration.

Aspartame's carcinogenity (ability to cause cancer) in laboratory animals is documented in studies done on the sweetener before its approval. Cancerous brain tumors found in laboratory rats in a dose-dependent relationship to the content of aspartame in their diet were among the most compelling reasons it was consistently rejected for use in foods. It took the hiring, by the G.D. Searle company that invented the sweetener, of a Washington insider, Donald Rumsfeld, as CEO in March of 1977 to force aspartame into the food supply.

"The exquisite and pivotal laboratory work done by Professor Maria Alemany despite the strenuous, though unconvincing, objections of the opposition is proof conclusive that aspartame and, therefore, methanol does turn into formaldehyde within the living organism. Dr. Alemany skillfully used radioactive tracing of the methanol component of aspartame and thus clearly and unequivocally demonstrated methanol's evolution into the formation of formaldehyde modified proteins and DNA.7 How strange it seems now that anyone would ever doubt that formaldehyde is produced from methanol or be convinced to think otherwise! For his exquisite work, Dr. Alemany had his university funding revoked and, like so many other scientists that dared go against the corruption that abounds in the western bureaucracies, was made to endure indignities designed to discourage dissension.

"Laboratory animals that take our place in safety testing have catalase enzyme in sufficient quantity within their bodies to protect them from the lion's share of the carcinogenetic effect of methanol's formaldehyde. When an animal does show signs of cancer the ramifications for humans are ominous. Therefore, when it comes to making a fair determination of the carcinogenic potential of methanol or aspartame, we are dependent on careful epidemiological observation of exposure of human populations to either methanol or aspartame. Nothing is wrong with this approach; it brings us back to the roots of the health sciences where observation leads to the application of logic and, in more cases than modern practitioners of medicine would like to admit, to the development of methods to prevent disease.

"For aspartame, we have excellent data of its consumption rate during the extremely important time its popularity was ramping up in the United States. The entire US population has been a study group, with no knowledge or forewarning of its participation in a ghastly experiment.

Using this data may be the very best way that its cancer causing potential can be determined. Toxicologists could only dream of such a large blind research population, which normally would make the job of the epidemiologist quite simple. Unfortunately, many toxicologists owe their allegiances to various industrial and pharmaceutical groups who insist they waste their skills proving how safe new chemicals are rather than showing the havoc that they might cause. No worries; we will see for ourselves where the truth lies and make our own determinations by looking at the graphs of the aftermath of thirty years of aspartame consumption.

We will put ourselves in the position of the ancient Aztec, Inuit or Judean intelligentsia whose insights guided their people away from foods that might do harm. The edge we have over the ancients is that our culture has uncovered knowledge of the chemistry of nature, and this can reinforce our observations with reasonable insights as to the molecular details that might lead to cancer production.

"Formaldehyde's Cancer-Causing prowess is enhanced when it comes from Methanol What exactly is the link between cancer and aspartame's methanol component? Without a doubt, a poison such as methanol that produces formaldehyde within cancer-prone tissue throughout the human body will eventually cause cancer. On the very day this paragraph was begun, June 10, 2011, the government of the United States finally caught up with the rest of the world and officially declared formaldehyde a "known human carcinogen."

A full grown human can die from ingestion of just a "few drops" of formaldehyde with death from acute formaldehyde poisoning often taking only minutes. Air contaminated with formaldehyde, even at very low concentrations, is now known to cause cancer in humans. Again let me stress that formaldehyde is one of a handful of chemicals classed as a Group I carcinogen by the IARC, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, Lyon, France. No known safe level of formaldehyde exposure exists; it is in all amounts a dangerous carcinogen and mutagen."

As I wrote earlier, it is hard to put down Dr. Monte's book. Not only do you get the facts but Dr. Monte is a gifted writer and carefully explains the dangers in easy to understand terminology.

There is another paragraph from his text that is highly important:

"Does that mean that just one sip of diet coke could start a cancer? Regrettably, the answer is yes. Cancer, therefore, is a purely statistical phenomenon in a game of environmental roulette. We turn the wheel each time we take a sip of diet soda or a puff of cigarette smoke and the wheel does not stop spinning until all the resultant formaldehyde has found its final home. If science understood the exact details of what cancer 'really' is, I would certainly spend time in its explanation. Here again, we have put our trust to find the cure for cancer into the hands of those who have the most to lose when a remedy is found. We know little more about the truth of cancer than we did when lone scholars worked long hours in underfunded university laboratories out of the reach of Big Pharma."

I can certainly relate to Dr. Monte's words. I have a formula for cancer I named for my mother Eve Geller who lost her life to chemotherapy and surgery. When the FDA found out about it they sent the Forestry to destroy the acreage where the herbs in the formula grow. It's a small town and most know each other. So one of the men from Forestry later went to see Earl Rayburn, the herbalist who had been growing herbs like his father and grandfather before him and said, "I want to apologize for what we did to your land. The FDA made us do it. They said they couldn't have cancer cured. Big Pharma wouldn't permit it!"

The formula is in Dr. Leonard Coldwell's book, "The Only Answer to Cancer". The FDA never stopped their harassment of Earl Rayburn. Because they destroyed his land he bought herbs elsewhere like Lady Slipper that grows aside the road. They confiscated $140,000 worth of herbs he had bought and then fined him $75,000 and made him sign something that said he could tell no one. Then they expunged the record.

I told Earl I didn't sign anything and I would make sure what the FDA did will never be forgotten. Earl's crime was that he had 800 letters from people who used the herbs to cure their cancer when doctors sent them home to die. Most of these cancer patients were terminal. 100% were cured.
