This article on methanol poisoning below mentions aspartame; as it points out, there are a significant number of deaths linked to this poisoning. But are the deaths from the moonshine from home brewed alcohol or has it to do with the bigger picture of methanol poisoning from aspartame?

Dr. Ralph Walton, who has done 2 studies on psychiatric effects of aspartame, wrote:

Notable that as a psychiatrist, Dr. Ralph Walton did two studies. He wrote: "By far the biggest contributor of methanol to the American diet is the artificial sweetener aspartame." One of his studies is:


The other one is on autism: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0306987715002443

He has answered some of the misleading statements by industry and the Fatal Drugs Allowed folks - the FDA. The FDA will tell you not to worry; there is more methanol in oranges than aspartame.

Dr. Walton has answered this statement with the truth of the matter. In nature like in oranges, there is also ethanol which is an antidote to methanol poisoning. There is no ethanol in aspartame. Furthermore, as Dr. Walton has pointed out, in nature methanol binds to pectin and takes it out of the body safely. Pectin is a soluble gelatinous polysaccharide that is present in ripe fruits and is extracted for use as a setting agent in jams and jellies.

Here is Dr. Woodrow Monte's article "Aspartame: Methanol and the Public Health" .mpwhi.com/aspartame_methanol_and_public_health.pdf This peer reviewed article also documents the real facts.

If you were talking to Dr. Monte about methanol, probably the first thing he would tell you is there is one molecule of methanol for each molecule of aspartame consumed. End of story from that statement. Dr. Monte rightly calls aspartame a killing machine. You're dealing with poison. Remember there is no ethanol in aspartame to neutralize the toxic effects of the methanol, which is in its free form and immediately absorbed in the blood stream.

When Kings College in London did a study on aspartame and brain tumors, Monsanto claimed aspartame could not get in the blood stream so it couldn't cause brain tumors.

However, here are the indisputable facts:


No aspartame manufacturer has ever answered this rebuttal. When the Safe Foods people in Japan tried to get Ajinomoto to answer it, they said since it was approved, they didn't have to answer and weren't going to answer it.

Dr. James Bowen explains further about free methyl alcohol and the blood stream: "Only after longer aspartame usage does liver damage cause blood methanol levels to measurably rise because the liver mitochondria are so damaged that the liver no longer quickly processes either methyl or ethyl (drink) alcohol. Then the acute methanol poisoning is directly measurable from lab results, as the blood methanol level elevates. This entire sequence or "toxic axis" begins with your very first dose of aspartame. Both acute and chronic poisonings from this methanol toxic axis, and other additive and synergistic aspartame poisonings, steadily accumulate in the aspartame consumer."

Aspartame is called a systemic poison because it can affect every organ in the body. It's cumulative. Aspartame victim Joyce Wilson of Stockbridge, Georgia was diagnosed by Dr. Morgan Raiford as suffering from methanol toxicity. Another physician diagnosed it as multiple sclerosis. She had her own organization warning others but she died blind like an Alzheimer victim. Her husband Richard Wilson told me, "It ravaged every organ in her body."

Here is the article "Rotgut Aspartame: Methanol Mania" published by the National Health Federation. It's the NHF who has fought at Codex exposing the dangers of aspartame and constantly publishes on this ghastly subject. It's very inexpensive to subscribe and keeps you updated on aspartame and other dangerous chemicals.
