03 Nov 2017 - Aspartame Intake Relates To Coronary Plaque Burden And Inflammatory Indices In Human Immunodeficiency Virus [Advantame is half aspartame and half Vanillin which you see is also genetically engineered. – Dr. Betty Martini, D. Hum.]

03 Nov 2017 - Aspartame: Balancing The Efficacy And Safety Of Preservatives In Multidose Products [The definition of excipient. :a usually inert substance (as gum arabic, syrup, lanolin, or starch) that forms a vehicle (as for a drug or antigen); especially :one that in the presence of sufficient liquid gives a medicated mixture the adhesive quality needed for the preparation of pills or tablets. You will notice aspartame is included. It is anything but inert as medical texts like "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" by the late world expert H. J. Roberts, M.D. is 1000 pages of symptoms and diseases triggered or precipitated by this addictive excitoneurotoxic, carcinogenic, genetically engineered drug, adjuvant and teratogen - a deadly chemical poison. Yet it is more and more used in drugs and especially generics which is what insurance drugs fill. Not even the physicians prescribing the drugs know when the patient gets the generic version it has aspartame. Some physicians I spoke with were horrified when they found out. This may be the reason its in thousands of drugs. You MUST check with your pharmacist or any drug you get so you won't fill anything that has this chemical poison in your drug. Here is the hospital form I've prepared to give to your hospital after signing. The following link is for the hospital form that states that you do not want to be given aspartame in any form.: http://www.rense.com/general96/hospform.html Never go to the hospital without it as it makes the hospital responsible, and they have to check the generic before they write a prescription. – Dr. Berry Martini, D. Hum.]

01 Nov 2017 - 7 Foods That Can Cause Cancer [The paragraph below on artificial sweeteners is one to keep because it discusses the main sweeteners used today. We all know aspartame causes cancer and was admitted by the chief scientist who investigated aspartame to the senate, Dr. Adrian Gross on 8/1/85. Dr. Moranfo Soffritti of the Ramazzini Institute did one on sucralose as well showing it causes cancer. He also did three studies on aspartame showing it to be a multipotential carcinogen. This paragraph is by Dr. David Brownstein who is well known. A lot of people don't know much about acesulfame potassium but in original studies it caused cancer and leukemia. The interesting thing is they all violate the Delaney Amendment which forbids putting products on the market you know cause cancer which was done in all three cases. I'll put the paragraph up front: Unfortunately we have an FDA that serves above the law and is there for industry but does not protect the public and misleads them with propaganda from industry. As Dr. Gross told the Senate: "If the FDA violates its own laws who is left to protect the public?" Mission Possible World Health Intl only exists to alert the world aspartame is a deadly poison because the FDA sold out, and several scientists there confessed they were broken and corrupt in a letter to former President Obama. Spread the word. There are now six class actions on aspartame having to do with aspartame causing weight gain instead of weight loss. If it says diet, don't buy it! Here is the paragraph: “Artificial sweeteners.” If you're using artificial sweeteners in pink and blue packets to sweeten coffee or tea, or if you drink artificially sweetened drinks, you're consuming chemicals known to cause cancer. Laboratory studies have found that exposing cancer cells to aspartame spurs their activity and increases their mobility. Acesulfame potassium, which is used to hide the disagreeable aftertaste of artificial sweeteners, is linked to an increased risk of breast cancer, thymus cancer, and leukemia. Sucralose (used in Splenda) damages the gut's microbiome; damage to the microbiome has been linked with various types of cancer, including colorectal and ovarian. – Dr. Betty Martini, D. Hum.]

01 Nov 2017 - Brazil: Aspartame: Advertising Unhealthy Food, A "Fat" Mess [Look at the statistics from when aspartame was approved. Aspartame makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight. Here is the quote from the congressional record which recorded the protest of the National Soft Drink Assn, now American Beverage. "Aspartame has been demonstrated to inhibit the carbohydrate-induced synthesis of the neurotransmitter serotonin (Wurtman affidavit). Serotonin blunts the sensation of craving carbohydrates and this is part of the body's feedback system that helps limit consumption of carbohydrate to appropriate levels. Its inhibition by aspartame could lead to the anomalous result of a diet product causing increased consumption of carbohydrates." Senate, S - 5511, May 7, l985 This is Dr. Richard Wurtman of MIT who fought like a tiger against aspartame during the Senate hearings but today he will no longer talk to the press. My neighbor built the Augusta aspartame factory which is now closed. He told me even though FDA told them not to market aspartame because they had found out about the dangerous studies, they were selling it anyway. It was originally approved in 1974. but legally approved through the political chicanery of Don Rumsfeld in 1981. He said it was poison and caused him to be very sick. With this in mind read the statistics on obesity below from 1975. Aspartame has caused a global epidemic of obesity. Dr. Sandra Cabot, Mission Possible Australia, said in an article titled "Aspartame Makes You Fatter": "After having been consulted by thousands of overweight people suffering with problems concerning the liver and/or metabolism I can assure you that aspartame will not help you in any way, indeed it will help you to gain unwanted weight. This has been my experience, and there are logical reasons to explain the fattening and bloating effects of aspartame. When you ingest the toxic chemical aspartame it is absorbed from the intestines and passes immediately to the LIVER where it is taken inside the liver via the liver filter. The liver then breaks down or metabolizes aspartame to its toxic components - phenylalanine, aspartic acid and methanol. This process requires a lot of energy from the liver which means there will be less energy remaining in the liver cells. This means the liver cells will have less energy for fat burning and metabolism, which will result in fat storing. Excess fat may build up inside the liver cells causing "fatty liver" and when this starts to occur it is extremely difficult to lose weight. In my vast experience any time that you overload the liver you will increase the tendency to gain weight easily. "Aspartame also causes weight gain by other mechanisms ---Causes unstable blood sugar levels, which increases the appetite and causes cravings for sweets/sugar. Thus it is particularly toxic for those with diabetes or epilepsy. Causes fluid retention giving the body a puffy and bloated appearance. This makes people look fatter than they are and increases cellulite" There are now 6 class actions having to do with "diet" foods with aspartame actually making you gain weight. We've known it for a long time and the biggest study was done on the consumer public. All countries should stop the import of aspartame. – Dr. Betty Martini, D. Hum.]

31 Oct 2017 - Low-Calorie Food Market Boosted By Growing Obese Population, To Reach US$10.4 Bn By 2019 [This link, http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_makes_you_fatter.htm goes to an article by Dr. Sandra Cabot titled "Aspartame Makes You Fatter". At the end is a quote from the congressional record where Dr . Richard Wurtman admits that aspartame makes you crave carbohydrates. This also goes into the addiction aspect as well: http://www.rense.com/general82/assp.htm This from New Scientist: https://www.newscientist.com/article/2114043-why-diet-drinks-with-aspartame-may-actually-help-make-you-fatter If someone comes out with propaganda and you answer it, they are never willing to take the challenge: https://publish.indymedia.org/el/2007/08/890921.shtml I like the name of your market research organization "transparency market research". September is "Aspartame Awareness Month". I would be interested in you making the facts clear. Here is my lastest article on the subject: http://www.rense.com/general96/brazexperts.html What will you do with this information? Will you allow the public to get the real facts and see through the web of deceit on the issue? – Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum.]

30 Oct 2017 - Aspartame Is GM Bacteria Shit Poop..True Story [I came across this and while not current it talks about the Independent publishing the story on GM bacteria/aspartame – Dr. Betty Martini, D. Hum.]

30 Oct 2017 - World's Top Sweetener Is Made With GM Bacteria [The way it went public is I was talking to Marilyn Wolff of the Independent. I said, "The UK is against genetic engineering, why not help us with aspartame?" She said, "but can you prove it?" What happened is it was on the Miwon web site but no one realized that was the formula for genetic engineering. When I pointed it out on this ban genetic engineering list Miwon took it down. However, I had printed it out and faxed it to Marilyn Wolff. She kept her promise. She not only published it on the front page but ABOVE one of the royal weddings. So a good deal of the UK read it. The excuse was "that's only in the US". Like I believe that. So for those who need the aspartame patent here it is. It makes me think of a conversation I had with someone who called sick from the Augusta, Ga. Aspartame Factory, now closed, over 25 years ago. He told me all those working with aspartame were sick like he was. I said, "Since you're making it, can you tell me what it’s made from?" He replied, "I don't know lady, all we have here is toxic waste!" – Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum.]

10 Oct 2017 - More Carcinogenic Lies From The FDA [The FDA answered my letter with more carcinogenic lies. They say "we believe that based on a fair evaluation of the available information, there is a reasonable certainty of no harm to the general population from the use of aspartame”.... In reality they made no evaluation at all, they ignored all scientific peer reviewed research for the past 30 years and act like the original fraud didn't exist. Yet everything is a matter of public record. FDA have said they know of no mechanism by which aspartame triggers diseases so when a world expert writes a medical text and gives the mechanisms and document what they have been asking for they ignore it. Their duplicity and deceit should be reason to remove anyone from the FDA who swindles the public from receiving the honest truth. Send it to your Congressmen and Senators and ask when is enough enough? Hoodwinking the public to believe a poison is a safe additive is murder by deception. – Dr. Betty Martini, D. Hum.]

04 Oct 2017 - Hospital Form To Make Sure You Aren't Given Aspartame As A Patient - Print This Out, Please

04 Oct 2017 - Flavored Condoms And Aspartame [They can't find enough products to poison you with! I wonder do they have a PKU warning? Remember in their discussion of oral sex, that this is then buccal. The definition of buccal is pertaining to the cheek. This is why aspartame gum is so dangerous. It's buccal so it goes through saliva like nitroglycerin under the tongue, goes straight to the brain. People have had a grand mal seizure from a stick of aspartame gum. We had one such case on TV here in Georgia about 18 or 19 years ago. Dr. H. J. Roberts discusses absorption within the mouth in this article on gum. It's also in his 1000 page medical text, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic", http://www.amazon.com This helps you understand how dangerous this is. – Dr. B. Martini, D.Hum.]

25 Aug 2017 - New Study Shows That Two Cans Of Diet Soda A Day Can Kill You: Drinking Excessive Amounts Of Diet Soda Can Lead To Many Negative Effects On Your Health ["This recent study from Sweden proves that Diet Soda is not a safe beverage opinion. It also revealed that the word "diet" in the product's name is just placed to attract their consumers. "The study you will read increases the risk of heart failure by 23% if the consumer is drinking two diet drinks a day. The Federal Trade Commission has been petitioned that using the word diet is deceptive and refuses to do anything about it. What do consumers need a Federal Trade Commission for when they protect industry. The FDA who was also petitioned uses the same modus operandi they always use, postponing for the day that never comes. They also admitted they were broken in 2009. So guess who is running the Fatal Drug Allowed folks? Read the whole article that also mentions other studies. FDA says they will do something when science shows there is a problem. Somebody send it to them in braille for they must be blind if they can't see decades of science proving everything from obesity and the metabolic syndrome to dementia and birth defects: http://www.rense.com/general96/deadlyaspar.html [Has an embedded video on the web page] - Dr. B. Martini, D.Hum.]

11 Aug 2017 - Coke Seeks To Ease Zero Fans’ Concerns [About those thinning sales. For some reason Coke thinks they can poison the public with aspartame, and people won't find out. Notice the continuing decline: Coke and Pepsi have been selling aspartame products for over 3 decades with full knowledge of its toxicity. http://www.rense.com/general96/pepsi.htm Here is the protest of the National Soft Drink Assn. Yet after protesting they turned around and lobbied for NutraSweet. They even mentioned in the protest that G. D. Searle had used a test that would not pick up the aspartic acid which is an excitotoxin, (Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D.) and even mentioned the law against adulteration. Their first objection w on July 28, 1983:"Objection One: Searle has not demonstrated to a reasonable certainly that aspartame and its degradation products are safe for use in soft drinks. Without quantitative limitations, under temperature conditions likely to prevail in the United States. I. Summary of Basis for Objection: Aspartame is inherently, markedly and uniquely unstable in aqueous media.” It breaks down today just like it did in 1983, except today we have the Trocho Study which shows that the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol embalms living tissue and damages DNA. It turns the tissue to plastic ("While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills" by Dr. Woodrow Monte). Today we have the Ramazzini Studies showing aspartame is a multipotential carcinogen, as well as Harvard's study linking aspartame to cancer. http://www.rense.com/general96/aspar.pdf All confirming what the FDA knew decades ago when FDA lead scientist Dr. Adrian Gross told the Senate on 8/1/1985 that aspartame caused cancer and therefore was illegally on the market because it violated the Delaney Amendment forbidding anything that you know will cause cancer. I stopped drinking Coke and Pepsi the day I read the protest because they had known the gun was loaded all along and used aspartame with full knowledge of its dangers. I told Coke years ago that even giants can fall. You can go to google news on aspartame any day and read article after article on the dangers of this chemical poison. I've even spoken to a scientist who worked for Coke. They have known from the beginning. On aspartame alone you get over 5 million hits. Everything is a matter of public record. It's even in a movie documentary: "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World" – http://www.sweetremedyradio.com Here you see the experts, and you hear how this poison got approved. Here is a video which also shows me holding up the 1000 page medical text, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" by H. J. Roberts, M.D. http://www.brasschecktv.com/videos/health-and-medical/aspartame-gmo-bacteria-excretions-causing- blindness.html I attended by proxy the stockholder's meeting thanks to the Killer Coke people and told the CEO of Coke they knew from the beginning. Coke continues along in face of all the concrete evidence against aspartame that they knew from the beginning. They know aspartame violates the Delaney Amendment, adulteration laws and even Interstate Commerce. In fact, aspartame violates the FDA's new rule on sanitary transport: http://www.rense.com/general96/FDAruleAspar.htm Because of the problems with HFCS I sent Coke a gallon of a replacement from "Just Like Sugar". It's made with organic food eliminating the health problems with HFCS, and its plant based. They sent it back saying they didn't take anything from outside their company. Now they have a contest asking for people outside the company to come up with a plant based sweetener. – Dr. B. Martini, D.Hum.]
