I met him through his help for me with using Baking Soda in my water to help with my cancer years ago. I refer to his book often as he has great info. It comes from His E-Book "CAUSES OF OVER 200 DISEASES" AND MMF PRODUCT USAGE GUIDE. (I am not a member of MMF so if you are interested in that please contact me I will get you in touch with him.)
If it says “sugar free” don’t touch it.
There is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus, fibromyalgia and Alzheimer's disease across the country and the world. One of the major causes of these diseases is in our supermarkets, drug stores, candy stores, restaurants and it has gone from those places into our homes. One of the poisons that is causing these epidemics is aspartame; a sweetener marketed as Nutrasweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.
Symptoms of Aspartame Disease Include:
Fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, burning tongue, cramps, vertigo, numbness in the legs, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, blindness and memory loss, severe seizures, panic attacks, rage and violence, severe memory loss, coma, escalates Alzheimer's disease, birth defects (such as mental retardation), brain tumors (lately surgeons have found high levels of aspartame in tumors removed from patients) , escalates diabetes symptoms.
Aspartame is manufactured by the NutraSweet Corporation, a subsidiary of Monsanto, who are fully aware of the dangers of this product. However, as Monsanto also funds the American Diabetics Association, the American Dietetic Association, the United States Congress, and the Conference of the American College of Physicians, there is a conspiracy of silence with regard to the dangers of this artificial sweetener, which is contained in over 5,000 sugar-free products sold under the brand names listed below.
Neotame, Nutrasweet, Nutrisweet, Aspertame, Nutri sweet, Nutri-sweet, Monsanto, Kelco, Nutrasweet Kelco, Benevia, Equal, Team Equal, Equal Measure, Spoonful, Diet Soda, Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi, Diet Sprite, Pepsi Light, Pepsi Max, Crystal Light, Sweeteners, Artificial Sweetener, Acesulfame-K, Sucralose, Sunette, Sunnette, Sweet One, Sweet & Safe, Splenda, Canderel, Chuker, Misura, Manugel, Keltrol, Kelcogel, Nutrifos, Stabil-9, Levn-Lite, Spoonful.
The New York Times, on November 15th 1996, ran an article on how the American Dietetic Association takes money from the food industry to endorse their products. Therefore, they cannot criticize any additives or tell about their link to Monsanto.
Neurosurgeon, Dr. Russell Blaylock said, "The ingredients stimulate the neurons of the brain to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees." Dr. Blaylock has written a book entitled Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills Click here for The Book
Dr. R.H. Roberts, diabetic specialist and world expert on aspartame poisoning, has also written a book entitled Defense Against Alzheimer's Disease Click Here for his Book. He writes about how Aspartame poisoning is escalating Alzheimer's disease.
Today women as young as 30 years of age are being treated for Alzheimer's disease.
Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when Aspartame was first marketed. He said diabetic patients presented symptoms of memory loss, confusion, and severe vision loss.
In Desert Storm several thousand pallets of diet drinks were shipped to the troops in the desert where they sat in the 120 degree F desert sun for weeks (remember at 86 degrees F. methanol poison is released). The symptoms of Desert Storm Syndrome match exactly those of Aspartame Disease.
“In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick. She had stomach spasms and she was having a hard time getting around. Walking was a major chore. It took everything she had just to get out of bed; she was in so much pain.
By March 2002, she had undergone several tissue and muscle biopsies and was on 24 various prescription medications. The doctors could not determine what was wrong with her. She was in so much pain, and so sick she just knew she was dying.
She put her house, bank accounts, life insurance, etc., in her oldest daughter's name, and made sure that her younger children would be taken care of.
She also wanted her last hooray, so she planned a trip to Florida (basically in a wheelchair) for March 22nd.
On March 19, I called her to ask how her most recent tests went, and she said they didn't find anything on the test, but they believed she had MS.
I recalled an article a friend of mine e-mailed to me and I asked my sister if she drank diet soda? She told me that she did. As a matter of fact, she was getting ready to crack one open that moment.
I told her not to open it, and to stop drinking the diet soda! I e-mailed her an article my friend, a lawyer, had sent. My sister called me within 32 hours after our phone conversation and told me she had stopped drinking the diet soda AND she could walk! The muscle spasms went away. She said she didn't feel 100% but, she sure felt a lot better.
She told me she was going to her doctor with this article and would call me when she got home.
Well, she called me, and said her doctor was amazed! He is going to call all of his MS patients to find out if they consumed artificial sweeteners of any kind. In a nutshell, she was being poisoned by the Aspartame in the diet soda... and literally dying a slow and miserable death.
When she got to Florida March 22, all she had to take was one pill, and that was a pill for the Aspartame poisoning! She is well on her way to a complete recovery and she is walking! No wheelchair! This article saved her life.
If it says 'SUGAR FREE' on the label; DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
In a keynote address by the EPA, it was announced that in the United States in 2001 there is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus. They could not however isolate the cause.
For this reason, many people were being diagnosed in error. Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, methanol toxicity is!
Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers.
The victim usually does not know that the aspartame is the culprit. He or she continues its use; irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become a life-threatening condition. We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas.
In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. We've seen many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly.
During a lecture, I said, 'If you are using ASPARTAME (Nutra Sweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc) and you suffer from fibromyalgia, tinnitus, spasms, shooting, pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, joint pain, unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss you probably have ASPARTAME poisoning!
The good new; these symptoms are reversible!
STOP drinking diet sodas and be alert for Aspartame and any of its names on food labels! A majority of processed foods and drinks contain it! This is a serious problem.
Diet soda is NOT a diet product! It is far more likely to make you GAIN weight! It is a chemically altered, multiple sodium and aspartame containing product that actually makes you crave carbohydrates.
These products also contain formaldehyde, which stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs. Formaldehyde is an absolute toxin and is used primarily used as embalming fluid to preserve “tissue specimens.”
Many products we use every day contain this chemical but we should NOT consume it as part of our diets!
Dr. H. J. Roberts stated in his lectures that once free of the “diet products” and with no significant increase in exercise; his patients lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period.
Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics. We found that some physicians, who believed that they had a patient with retinopathy, in fact, had symptoms caused by Aspartame. The aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control. Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are neurotoxic when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance.
Treating diabetes is all about balance. Especially with diabetics, the aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier and it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain; causing various levels of brain damage, including seizures, depression, manic depression, panic attacks, uncontrollable anger and rage.
Consumption of aspartame causes these same symptoms in non-diabetics as well. Documentation and observation also reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when these chemicals have been removed from their diet.
So called “behavior modification” prescription drugs (Ritalin and others) are no longer needed. Truth be told, they were never needed in the first place!
Most of these children were being “poisoned” on a daily basis with the very foods that were “better” for them than sugar.
It is also concluded that the aspartame in thousands of pallets of diet Coke and diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome.
Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause mental retardation and perhaps other birth defects, if taken at the time of conception and during early pregnancy. Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should NEVER be given artificial sweeteners.
Talking about a plague of neurological diseases directly caused by the use of this deadly poison, there are many different case histories that relate to children suffering grand mal seizures and other neurological disturbances.
Herein lays the problem: There were Congressional Hearings when aspartame was included in 100 different products, and strong objection was made concerning its use. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings and still nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets.
Since MONSANTO'S patent on aspartame has expired, there are now over 5,000 products on the market that contain this deadly chemical and there will be thousands more introduced. Everybody wants a “piece” of the aspartame pie.
MONSANTO knows how deadly aspartame is, but they are more concerned about their profits than they are about your suffering. And isn't it ironic that MONSANTO funds the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic Association and the Conference of the American College of Physicians to name a few?
This has been recently exposed in the New York Times. These organizations cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO because to receive this money, they are required to endorse their products.
Senator Howard Metzenbaum wrote and presented a bill that would require label warnings on products containing aspartame, especially regarding pregnant women, children and infants.
The bill would have instituted independent studies on the known dangers and the problems existing in the general population regarding seizures, changes in brain chemistry, neurological changes and behavioral symptoms.
The bill was killed.
The powerful drug and chemical lobbies are responsible for this, letting loose the demons of disease and death on an unsuspecting and uninformed public. Well, you're informed now, and the only way to win this war is to educate enough people who say NO to these poisons!
You obviously know 5-10 people that you don’t want to see suffer from these symptoms. If everybody shared this information with 5-10 people, pretty soon the whole world would know and demand something better through their buying habits.
Anyone suffering from the effects of aspartame poisoning may benefit greatly by taking MMF, as it is a powerful detoxifier of toxins.

It is well documented that the chemical sweetener aspartame breaks down into several chemical components over time, including formaldehyde and methanol.
One study conducted at the Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, University of Miami, Miami, Florida, sought to explore formaldehyde poisoning in more detail. The abstract of this study reveals the following:
Upon ingestion, Aspartame is broken, converted, and oxidized into Formaldehyde in various tissues. We present the first case series of aspartame-associated migraines related to clinically relevant positive reactions to formaldehyde on patch testing. Click Here for Link to Text
