Hawaii Moves to Ban Aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal, etc.)
Aspartame Disease has created a global plague, and even has a medical text of over 1000 pages of horrors - Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic by H. J. Roberts, M.D. Will Hawaii be the first state to ban it.
Efforts continue to ban this deadly excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug that is addicting the public and triggering so many symptoms and diseases from MS and lupus and seizures to Parkinson's, diabetes and obesity and even blindness and death. An aspartame documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, explains how Don Rumsfeld got this marketed when the FDA said no. http://www.soundandfury.tv/
No one can forget the gallant efforts of Senator Gerald Ortiz y Pino who sponsored the Senate bill to ban aspartame in New Mexico. One picture that remains in my mind is addressing the Senate with Senators sipping Diet Coke. Dr. Ken Stoller said "It's hard to believe we are going to get anywhere with you drinking this but consider the children." Aspartame is a teratogen triggering birth defects and mental retardation, reducing IQ, and triggering all types of behavioral and psychiatric problems. http://www.mpwhi.com/
Stephen Fox of Santa Fe, Managing Editor of the Santa Fe Sun News and prime New Mexico moving force behind the legislature efforts to ban aspartame, commented on the great consumer progress implicit in these two bills in Hawaii:
"This is wonderful news coming from Hawaii; the Legislators and their bill drafters saw the merit in keeping almost all of the same language from the 2006 and 2007 New Mexico bills, especially regarding the states' rights and their obligation to protect citizens health, which are not "preempted" by massive failures at the FDA.
"These New Mexico bills were overwhelmed and eviscerated in New Mexico by some of the most vicious corporate lobbyists I have ever encountered, representing Ajinomoto of Japan, the world's largest aspartame and MSG manufacturer, as well as their duped American corporate henchmen/colleagues who use massive amounts of Aspartame, like Coca Cola, Pepsi, Altria/Kraft Corporate services, and others. The same lobbyists will show up in Honolulu, make no mistake...
"These corporations have everything to lose if such bills advance and ultimately lead to the inevitable product liability and personal injury suits from those damaged by aspartame, which number in the hundreds of millions, despite their cooperate serving propaganda and lies.
"My profoundest appreciation goes to the Hawaii activists who brought up these imperative issues, and to the Legislators who see the merit and need to protect the health of all Hawaiians, no matter what duplicity is perpetuated by the top brass and corporate lackeys at the FDA."
47 Members of the UK Parliament have asked for a ban and efforts in New Zealand continue with a circulating petition for ban.
Aspartame was never proven safe. Here is the Board of Inquiry Report of the FDA that revoked the petition for approval: http://www.mpwhi.com/

Mission Possible International is a non-profit, global volunteer force warning the world off aspartame. We are in 38 nations and work free to alert the public of the neurodegenerative diseases, birth defects, cancers, blindness, diabetes, obesity, sudden cardiac death and other horrors triggered by this deadly excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug. It interacts with drugs and vaccines. It has damaged a generation of children. An Aspartame Information List has been set up on www.mpwhi.com
