Dear Hawaii House Health Committee:

Please give a Do Pass to Rep. Carroll’s bill to ban aspartame. I have arranged for many victims and many important physicians, including the top physician in the world Dr. H.J. Roberts, to write to you in this regard, as well as one (Senator Gerald Ortiz y Pino) and soon to be more members of the New Mexico Legislature with direct personal observations about the effects of perfidious corporate lobbyists who came to Santa Fe to destroy a prior bill in two different years, 2006 and 2007. There will be many more testimonial letters for the next committee. I won’t regale you further with the medical harm done by ingesting this poisonous neurotoxin and carcinogen whose approval was forced through the FDA by Donald Rumsfeld as CEO of the patent holder in 1981, G.D. Searle. After watching the DVD Sweet Misery, you know this.

I will only remind you that opposition lobbyists represent industries and corporations that manufacture and add an aspartame that has almost destroyed the Hawaiian agricultural base of growing and refining cane sugar, a profound impact on Hawaii’s economy. Yet these same corporations will be complaining about this bill, and telling you blatant lies about how an aspartame is harmless, and that it has been through 200 (industry paid for) tests.

This bill is not only about protecting the health of all Hawaiians, but on an underlying level, perhaps helping to rebuild a major Hawaii industry, the growing and processing of cane sugar.
