What I would call you is a very smart pilot!  You might want to read my 
post under food numbness - aspartame auto-responder.  You can now access 
information you may want very easily.  

I assume I'm the lady with the neat name - Martini.  You might be 
interested to know that we quote the U.S. Air Force journal FLYING SAFETY 
on our warning flyer.  They say: "..Some people have suffered aspartame 
related disorders with doses as small as that carried in a single stick 
of chewing gum.  This could mean a pilot who drinks diet soas is more 
susceptible to flicker vertigo, or to flicker-induced epileptic 
activity.  It also means that all pilots are potential victims of sudden 
memory loss, dizziness during instrument flight and gradual loss of vision."

That's FLYING SAFETY, May 1992.

If you would like to have an "aviation pack" you can send me a 
self-addressed, large envelope, with sufficient postage and I'll send you 
some interesting information you may wish to have on aviation.  Other 
material is available from the auto-responder.  

You may remember that the American Airliner that fell out of the sky in
December was due to pilot error - tunnel vision.  In the report 
"The most characteristic signs and symptoms of methyl alcohol poisoning 
in humans are the various visual disturbances which can occur without 
acidosis although they unfortunately do not always appear.  Some of these 
symptoms are the following:  misty vision, progressive contraction of 
visual fields (vision tunneling), mist before the eyes, blurring of 
vision and obscuration of vision."

When Lucky Vanous came to Atlanta (The Diet Coke Hunk) I told him he had 
a double.  We call him the Diet Hunk Victim.  His name is Haynes Dunn and 
he flew for Continental Airlines before he lost his health and his 
occupation because he had a grand mal seizure in flight from NutraSweet.
Lucky Vanous no longer works for Coke.

Continental pilots tell me Haynes is an out-standing pilot.  There was 
just no one to warn him of the dangers and he didn't know that NutraSweet 
is a seizure triggering drug, and produced grand mal seizues in lab animals.
Today there is a Worldwide Pilot Hotline for just that reason - to warn 
pilots.  Their number is 214 352-4268.  

You'll be happy to know that MISSION POSSIBLE flies packets around the 
world to Air Traffic Controls to warn pilots of this impending danger.  
We hope you too will access our warning flyer and warn other pilots.f

Thanks for your post.

P.S.  We are in the process of asking for Congressional Hearings to remove
NutraSweet from the marketplace.  Other countries are also having serious 
problems and have asked for our help.
