‘Sweet Misery’ exposes ‘the truth’ about
aspartame and the medical horrors it inflicts
upon the unwitting victims who consume it,
believing it to be safe!
Victims such as Charles Fleming who died as a result of drinking soft drinks that contained aspartame. His wife Diane Fleming was then arrested and put on trial by the authorities for his murder. This further compounds her tragedy as she is now condemned to spend the next 50 years in jail wrongly accused of the death of her husband who actually died from the methanol poisoning from aspartame. Aspartame and its proponents, who have always and still do claim, aspartame to be safe, they are the true villians, it is they who have murdered Charles Fleming and many thousands like him around the world, yet ‘they remain free’.
Please support a petition on line for Diane’s release: http://www.petitiononline.com/wnhodfp/petition.htm to Virgina State Governor Mark R. Warner. Diane Fleming, an innocent woman who passed a polygraph test, she was accused of killing her husband by adding methanol, a poison, to a bottle of Gatorade (a soft drink containing aspartame) which he drank. The chief medical examiner for the state of Virginia refused to consider the aspartame evidence.
After 7,000 miles, and 25 hours of footage, Sweet Misery will reveal one of the most pervasive, insideous forms of corporate negligence since tobacco.
The toxic long-term effects of aspartame are often dismissed as a “hoax” by the sweetener industry and at least five other internet websites. The real footwork, however, unravels something less comforting than a mere “Hoax.”
The decision to overrule the FDA’s board of inquiry and approve aspartame as a food additive led to a domino effect of US institutions following suit with their acceptance of aspartame.
Worldwide acceptance with no further independent tests for the safety of aspartame enabled the worldwide distribution of aspartame.
The medical profession is often left in the dark and may never realize their patient may be suffering from toxins in the food supply.
Decades ago, Dr. John W. Olney informed G.D. Searle that aspartic acid caused holes in the brains of mice. Dr. Olney insisted Searle replicate studies in his office. They showed brain damage. Searle never gave those studies to the FDA nor did Searle inform the FDA of these studies until after aspartame’s approval. None of the tests submitted by G.D. Searle to the FDA contradicted these findings (Olney 1970, Gordon 1987, page 493 of US Senate 1987).
The decision to overrule the FDA’s board of inquiry and approve aspartame as a food additive led to a domino effect of US institutions following suit with their approval of aspartame. Worldwide acceptance with no further independent tests for the safety of aspartame enabled the worldwide distribution of aspartame.
In the film Sweet Misery one unique victim, Diane Fleming, is interviewed in a Virginia prison where she is condemned to spend the next 50 years for the death of her husband. Having no idea of the methanol toxicity that can occur in a heavy user of Nutrasweet, doctors suggested that Diane should call the police to investigate her husband’s poisoning. Later, Diane was accused and convicted for pouring a sealed jug of windshield wiper fluid into his Gatorade drink to poison her husband…
The Toxic Soup Called Aspartame (E951)
‘Apartame was never and cannot be PROVEN safe’ It is not and cannot be a diet aid because the formaldehyde (from the breakdown of 10% methanol) gets stored in the fat along with some water. The National Soft Drink Association (NSDA) did a 30-page protest in the (Congressional Record, Senate S 5511, 5/7/85) that complained that aspartame was unstable, and that it reduces the levels of seretonin (a substance that gives that ‘full’ feeling) so aspartame induces a craving for carbohydrates.
The phenyalalanine breaks down into diketopiperazine (DKP), a known brain tumour agent, and is the reason the FDA mandated a PKU warning label for ‘PHENYLKETONURICS’ – contains phenylalanine’ Diketopiperazine was the major impediment to the approval noted in the Searle (the original manufacturer) ‘Helling’ memo. http://www.dorway.com/secrets.html
The methanol (without ethanol, the natural antidote) breaks down in solution ( Diet Coke, Fresca, Diet Pepsi etc.) into formaldehyde. The human liver also breaks down ‘free’ methanol from any solution into formaldehyde. The body has difficulty eliminating formaldehyde so it combines some of it with water and stores it in the fat. Formaldehyde not stored in the fat is further converted to formic acid (the same substance as ant-sting poison). See http://www.presidiotex.com/barcelona/
So with each sip EVERY user gets a micro-dose of three poisons which include formaldehyde and formic acid (known carcinogens) combined with DKP, a brain tumour agent. A science report was done on Diet Cokes and the results were evaluated by a reputable food test laboratory, they proved that the methanol => formaldehyde conversion takes place (even in unopened cans cooling off in the refrigerator) and the phenylalanine converted to DKP. See http://www.dorway.com/jcohen.html
Damages caused by aspartame are noted in the FDA’s compliled list of 92 symptoms of aspartame poisoning.www.dorway.com/badnews.html#symptoms
This is a fairly concise list of the components in aspartame that breakdown from the aspartic acid, phenylalanine and methanol:
Formaldehyde: CAS # 50-00-0 CH20 (embalming fluid)
Formic Acid: CAS # 64-18-6 CH202
(fire ant-sting poison)
Beta Aspartame: CAS
Aspartylphenylalanine amide: CAS
Tyrosine: CAS # 60-18-4 C9H11N03
Phenylethylamine: CAS # 64-04-0
Phenylactic acid: CAS
Phenylactic acid: CAS # 103-82-2
Diketopiperazine (DKP): CAS # 106-57-0 C4H6N202 (Glycine anhydrid)
The list of symptoms were derived from what the FDA notes report is the most complained about substance in their history, at one time comprising around 85% of all complaints.
The total number of complaints that FDA admits to is over 10,000 (a vast understatement because Mission Possible has sent the FDA thousands of reports which they chose to ignore).
The FDA says less than 1% of victims report a problem. This balloons their 10,000 complaints to over a MILLION victims who SHOULD have complained! Please note that either number is significant, especially for a “safe” food additive.
The proponents of aspartame admit to the 10% methanol content but claim that fruit has more methanol. This is probably true, but where they deviate from the truth is that nature included an abundance of ETHANOL in fruit, the natural antidote to methanol poisoning. They omit to tell the public that aspartame has NO ethanol, which is why it is unstable and breaks down into formaldehyde in unopened containers.
Products with aspartame in solution have an approximate 270 day shelf-life if stored below 86 degrees F. Much less when stacked in the sun outside a gas station!
A Nutrasweet Co. comment: “Additionally, the comments about Multiple Sclerosis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosis, and Alzheimer’s Disease being linked to aspartame are not true. No one knows what causes these sad diseases, but they existed many years before aspartame came to the market. There has not been an “epidemic.” Unfortunately these unsubstantiated statements have frightened individuals and their families.”
Nutrasweet also says that the amino acids in aspartame are “natural”. They are natural only IN COMBINATION with other amino acids… not isolated as in aspartame.
Dr. Moser, the Nutrasweet spokesman, overstepped the boundary of truth on National TV when he stated aspartame cannot get into the blood and cause seizures. The RAO report, one of 15 “pivotal” (of seventy four) G. D. Searle funded tests, proved that five of seven monkeys fed aspartame-laced milk for a year developed seizures and the seventh one died (but all data on why was “lost”). Dr. Moser privately admitted to Jennifer Cohen (author of the Diet Coke science report):
“..the study should never have been undertaken, much less submitted as legitimate observation. This particular experiment represents an unpardonable breach in methodology.” (H. Moser)
The FDA’s “pivotal” proof of safety is a bizarre inverted interpretation.What might the other 73 Searle-funded tests reveal? Review the FDA toxicologist Dr. Gross’s notarized statements to Senator Metzenbaum concerning brain tumors (http://www.dorway.com/gross.txt) and FDA’s Dr. Jerome Bressler’ 76 page report of only ONE Searle test, which verifies brain, mammary, ovarian and uterine tumors PLUS shrunken testes http://www.dorway.com/bressler.txt
Simply stated… “ASPARTAME is a Pandora’s box of chameleon-like toxins and tumor agents that have 92 the FDA acknowledged ways to ruin your life, death being one of them”.
Damage caused by aspartame consumption is CUMULATIVE… it adds up with each dose. Too often the FDA mandated warning label “PHENYLKETONURICS: Contains phenylalanine” is hidden or illegally omitted (with impunity)

Guess who the world can thank for aspartame?
Donald Rumsfeld the former CEO of Searl
In 1980 the FDA Public Board of Inquiry on Aspartame ruled that the sweetener should not be marketed because it had not been shown to be safe (it appeared to cause brain cancer in animal tests done by its manufacturer the Searle drug company). In July of 1981 President Reagan appointed a new FDA commissioner who overturned this action. Donald Rumsfeld, at that time was president of Searle served on the Reagan Presidential Transition Team.
In a letter written after the FDA cleared NutraSweet, one former Searle saleswoman, Patty Wood-Allott, asserted that Rumsfeld told his sales force shortly after Reagan took office that if necessary, “he would call in his markers and that no matter what, he would see to it that aspartame would be approved that year.” Rumsfeld declined to return phone calls.
Help spread the word “Aspartame Kills.” This is a drug masquerading as an additive and is illegally in thousands of food and drink products. Aspartame is now renamed AMINOSWEET, click on file below for updated article ‘Frankenstein Foods’ ‘Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World
