Dear JFA: The quote about the one piece of chewing gum being able to
trigger attacks comes from the United States Air Force. We quote this
paragraph on our warning flyer from their journal FLYING SAFETY, May 1992.
I refer people to the Worldwide Pilot Hotline (214 352-4268) because they
have all the information on the seizures pilots are having from
NutraSweet, and have all the articles, studies and reports. However,
some aviation magazines that contain warnings about NutraSweet causing

Dr. Harry Waisman studied the effects of aspartame on primates. Seven
infant monkeys were fed the chemical in milk. One died after 300 days, 5
others had Grand Mal seizures. Searle deleted these findings when they
submitted his study to the FDA. Ever since aspartame's approval people
have been having seizures just like the monkeys. Over 600 pilots have
called the Worldwide Pilot Hotline, many because they have had grand mal
seizures in the cockpits of commercial airliners.
Dr. Kessler of the FDA says that only 1% of serious problems are reported
to the FDA. Their report of April 20, 1995 on aspartame complaints
(Health Hazard Evaluation Board) listed 10,000 complaints from blindness
to death. Almost 500 seizures were reported. Even though this is in the
public domain they refused to release this report until I filed with
Freedom of Information. Their answer to all these complaints! They said
in Food Chemical News, June 12, 1995 they will no longer compile complaints!
There were 735 complaints of dizziness and poor equilibrium plus 230
complaints of other neurological problems. There were 255 cases of
According to Dr. H. J. Roberts in his book: DAAD; DEFENSE AGAINST
ALZHEIMERS DISEASE (1 800-814-9800) these single amino acids in aspartame
without the other amino acids in protein (aspartic acid and phenylalaine
- both neurotoxic) go past the blood brain barrier and deteriorate the
neurons of the brain. He says it is accelerating Alzheimers, and give a
seminar on this subject this past Saturday in Atlanta.
In March, 1995, Dr. Roberts and I attended the Conference of the American
College of Physicians at the World Congress Center in Atlanta, and 5000
physicians from all over the country and the world were there. In
Neurology Workshop, one neurosurgeon said: "Will somebody please tell us
where all these seizures are coming from?" I answered" "The
phenylalanine in aspartame lowers the seizure threshold in the brain."
Another doctor also a pilot said: "I have a friend who is a pilot who
flies a commercial airliner and continues to drink diet soda and have
grand mal seizures - I have been thinking of reporting him!"
On February 27 and February 28 an NBC affiliate in Miami, Chanel 4,
exposed the FDA approval process of aspartame (Sweet Sickness) and Gwenne
Allen (657 Hummingbird Lane, Delray Beach, Florida 33445) told her horror
story of 8 years of petit mal seizures until she read Dr. Roberts book
and abstained. She said one case was probably a grand mal seizure.
Since she has abstained from products with NutraSweet she no longer has
seizures. Her full case history is listed with our auto-responder and I
will be happy to email instructions for anyone who wants to read it and
other testimonies, the history of aspartame, and other information
including info on pilots.
In a local newspaper here in Atlanta, ALTERNATIVES, April 1, 1994, Sharon
A Gunby wrote: "My three year old daughter had a seizure while drinking
soda sweetened with NutraSweet."
Also in this paper wrote Richard Wilson: "Aspartame killed my wife. No
words cana express the agony and horror sweet Joyce endured. This poison
destroyed her brain, ravaged all her rogans and blinded her. She died at
age 46 in 1991. .... I'm a man without a wife because the NutraSweet
Company is a business without a conscience."
Mary Nash Stoddard of the Worldwide Pilot Hotline issued a press release
on September 8, 1994 titled: MILITARY PILOTS GROUNDED BY THEIR DIET DRINKS.
Hartford: In Hartford for the annual meeting of the US Marine Corps
Combat Corresondents, Mary Nash Stoddard, founded of the Aspartame
Consumer Safety Network, will be sharing findings of her network
regarding pilots and aspartame ingestion.
"Stoddard will be available inHartford, 9/8 thru 12th to answer questions
and support allegations regarding this important issue and how it is
aversely affecting 3 out of 5 who use it .. just just pilots. .. Some
pilots are having grand mal seizures in the cockpits of commercial
airline flights, and others are crashing the flight simulator at training
facilities while in seizure. Dozens have lost their flying status
because of reactions. Seizures, loss of vision, vertigo, suicidal
depressions, heart problems, etc. are routinely reported. Reactions in
many consumers are reported to cause bizarre psychological symptoms as
well. The product is 10% methanol (wod alcohol) by weight and breaks
down further in heat and in the body into : Formaldehyde, formic acid
and a brain tumor agent, diketopiperizine."
