MY LAST 6 YEARS
SIX YEARS AGO Started NOTICING ATAXIA (poor balance etc.) SIGNS IN FALL OF 2000. ( I did't know if I was going to be able to drive tractor in spring 2001 ) 2001 I WENT TO University of Minnesota and they ran several tests..(mri,blood work,nerve test, etc etc. all showed nothing. Docs confused (me even more).

Symptoms of MS and had tests done in S.F. S.D. MRI, checked carodid artery blood work, etc. Docs confused (me even more).
they showed nothing either.. ??? that was 2002.

Last spring (05) couldn’t work (havn’t worked since) anymore..symtopms were.. .. Chronic fatigue, severe depression,(to the point I thought of just ending it ) slurred speech, dry and worsening vision , buzzing in right ear, tingling/numbness in feet/hands, gotta be extra careful when swallowing (choke), (92 documented by the FDA symptons and cuses many deseases and mimic many too) ataxia symptoms, general poor co-ordination..i/e dialing phone typing etc. (used to just fly though dialing and typing. .very few mistakes and very fast handwriting.. now I make a ton of mistakes and handwriting is not ledgable…just ask my wife . Which I might add she has been great through this…also the last 33 yrs. Married to me!) ..Just in everythingI do have had to learn to slow down and think hard to make body do what’s wanted…. Learned to deal with all this (so I wouldn’t hurt myself).……..

in July of 05 went to Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minn. Told doc to take his best guess on diagnosing what’s up…I had brought MRI DISC THAT I HAD DONE IN 2002 FOR THEM TO COMPARE…. Diagnosed with having….

IDIOPATHIC DEGENERATION OF THE CERABELUM ATAXIA…idiopathic=unknown ataxia=unsteadyness.


In Aug of 05 on the 7th I got e-mail warning of the dangers of aspartame/nutrasweet…(no doctor in 6 yrs. And $35,000.00 worth of tests ever mentioned this ) …. Got off of it that very day (heavy diet dew drinker containing aspartame) these symptoms were gone in 48 hrs… or sooner …. Severe depression, chronic fatigue, coordination got better, slurred speech better handwriting….

I had a Caribou hunt booked with webbers lodges
Had e-mailed the outfitter on Fri. Wondering if I could even do it.(having hunted all my life I really wanted to go on my “DREAM HUNT”. )

he called me Monday (Aug. 8th) and I told him no problem now…as I was already over the chronic fatigue. Went caribou huntin in Sept. had a ball…was able to treestand bow hunt last fall, also gun hunted…

Dec. 2005 rolls around and I fell right back into most of same symptoms (read up on it more….(.Aspartame poisoning will trigger many degenerative diseases!) didn’t have the chronic fatigue, severe depression, ( the mind altering stuff was gone) I had worse slurred speech, I had worsening eyesight and dry mattery eyes, I had much worse dexterity i/e typing,dial phone, writing etc….also very hard standing up at times (especially evenings)…pain in left hip….lost a lot of mass in leg and hips…
Been a roller coaster ride for sure. On a little upswing now (I hope) roller coaster going up lol .
That’s where I’m at right now so I’m hoping to hunt this fall…(as long as my body will function as I tell it to)…although I am a lot slower.

NM Senator Tells Bush: PULL THE PLUG ON ASPARTAME!

President George Walker Bush
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington D.C. 20500

Dear President Bush:

We request that you order FDA Commissioner
nominee, Andrew Von Eschenbach M.D., to rescind
the FDA approval for the artificial sweetener,
Aspartame. Its approval was forced through the
FDA in 1981, and the USA has had 25 years to
observe the incontrovertible medical effects from
Aspartame, which derive from its being
metabolized as methanol and formaldehyde, and two
unessential amino acids, one of which,
phenylalanine is neurotoxic lowering the seizure
threshold and depleting serotonin and the other
aspartic acid, an excitotoxin. The molecule
breaks down to a proven brain tumor causing
agent, diketopiperazine. Aspartame is now found
in 6000 USA food products and more than 500 medications.

There is a excellent precedent for this: the fact
that Richard Nixon in 1969 ordered that the FDA
rescind the approval for another proven
carcinogenic artificial sweetener, Cyclamates.
The incidence of neurodegenerative diseases in
the USA like Multiple Sclerosis and Lou Gehrigs
Disease have increased substantially since 1981.
We think that given the evidence that has accrued
thus far concerning Aspartame's harm, its effects
as a teratogen, causing birth defects and
chromosomal damage; its being the most complained
about chemical on the market, according to FDA
statistics (FDA stopped taking complaints on
Aspartame in 1995); and because of our concern
for protecting the health of Americans, as well
as the health of the many nations which
subsequently approved it for general use as a
result of the US FDA approval, we ask that you
order Aspartame rescinded by the FDA Commissioner nominee as soon as possible.

As you know, the Institute of Medicine has
completed a recent report sharply critical of the
FDA regarding the FDA's inability to ensure the
safe and effective use of prescription drugs. Our
concerns in this letter are not with drugs, but
with the obvious need to overhaul the entire
process of the FDA granting approval for food
additives in general, which are often forced
through the approval process based only on the
strength of industry paid for studies. The USA
needs independent objective source of truth in these processes.

You have a chance to do this as President, which
is preferable to the United States Senate having
to later make rescinding FDA approval for
Aspartame and other deleterious and poisonous
substances a condition upon which Dr. Von
Eschenbach’s nomination approval is contingent.
Your concerns should not be with corporate
objections and continued allegations that their
products are safe. Many heads of state
internationally will be grateful for your taking
the correct action in this regard.

Respectfully,

Gerald Ortiz y Pino

Members of the New Mexico Legislative Health and Human Services Committee

Aspartame Buys Time

By Senator Jerry Ortiz y Pino
2-19-6

Nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to the
corrosive influence of money on our public
policy. I'm not just talking about the
shenanigans inside the beltway of our nation's
capitol-that Congress is for sale to the highest
bidder has unfortunately become a practically
accepted tenet of the American belief system.

So accepted is it that the astounding arrogance
and venality being revealed by the current Tom
Delay and Jack Abramoff scandals in the District
of Columbia scarcely produce raised eyebrows, let alone outrage.

But I'm not just talking about that.

Nor am I talking only about the way that moneyed
interests are able to sway local government
toward policies that benefit those interests;
hey, we apparently prefer a system in which local
elections go to the highest bidder and
business-as-usual involves twisting contractors'
arms to secure campaign contributions.

Instead, today I'd like to zero-in on the
pressure applied to our third level of
representative government, the carryings-on that
occur in the halls of State Government ... in all its branches.

And from among at least a dozen recent, painful
examples of how big business manages to protect
itself from such wet-blanket considerations as
the good of the public, I'd like to select one as
a representative: the continued approval of the
reliance by processed food and beverage
manufacturers on the chemical aspartame.

As an artificial sweetener, one now being added
to some 6,000 products, it is difficult for most
Americans to not consume aspartame daily. Its
safety (and clearing up any doubts about that
safety) would seem to be of critical importance
to millions of us. But any discussion of this
topic has been postponed in New Mexico
indefinitely-through influence exerted by
representatives hired by the Japanese
manufacturer of aspartame, the Ajinomoto Corporation.

Those well-connected hired hands managed, in
December, to frighten the State Environmental
Improvement Board (EIB) into backing off of the
public hearings into aspartame's safety that they
had originally agreed to conduct this coming
summer. They managed this delay by challenging
the authority of the State of New Mexico to
review anything already approved by the Federal
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and by
threatening to sue the state if we tried to do so.

Then those same hired hands resurfaced (augmented
by the addition to their team roster of Butch
Maki, a close confidant of Gov. Bill Richardson)
in time to quash all attempts to discuss the
matter during the just-concluded State Legislature.

There was one hearing on the subject and it drew
significant numbers of the industry lobbyists,
all of whom asserted the same party line: The
substance is perfectly safe; the Federal
Government has looked at it carefully and who the
heck is New Mexico, anyway, to raise any questions about it?

The committee succumbed, and turned down the measure to ban aspartame 7-2.

That half-hour hearing was the total discussion
of the matter this year in the public arena in
New Mexico, unless the EIB board changes its mind
and decides to call Ajinomoto's bluff by going ahead and holding a hearing.

The incredible spectacle of corporate hirelings
exerting this kind of influence is, to our great
shame, all too common in our state. The
Legislature has resisted reforming campaign
finance laws to inject some real muscle, which
leaves the door wide open to the corporate powers
to throw money around strategically, buying
whatever access they need or blocking their
opposition's access to the policymakers.

But no one should be surprised that Ajinomoto
would rely on muscle to protect its profits from
aspartame. The entire history of this product's
approval by the FDA is rife with muscle flexing
.. and very little in the way of science.
Originally, it was a patent of the Searle
Pharmaceutical Company. And beginning in the late
'60s, the FDA repeatedly turned down Searle's
submissions for approval, the results of its
testings leaving serious doubts in the minds of FDA scientists.

All of that changed in 1981 when Ronald Reagan
took the presidency. He listened to the then head
of Searle, Donald Rumsfeld, (yes, that Donald
Rumsfeld) who bypassed the scientists and went
straight to the new Reagan appointee at FDA.
Within weeks, the scientists were overruled and
aspartame was approved. Several FDA scientists
resigned in protest. They even alleged that
Searle had fabricated results in the testing submitted.

Twenty-five years later, the evidence is mounting
that our growing incidence of brain tumors, organ
cancers and neurological diseases has followed
the introduction of so many artificially created
additives and chemicals in our food. It's only a
matter of time until even Ajinomoto's money won't
be able to block the unavoidable link between
these unnecessary products and our decline in health.

When that happens, as it finally did to tobacco
and lead and other heavy metals found in
gasoline, we will act. The sad thing is that
thousands of deaths and ruined lives will occur between now and then.

One of the cruel ironies to aspartame is that it
was supposed to create sugar-free soft drinks for
the benefit of diabetics. Since its introduction,
the incidence of diabetes has soared. Some
critics link the two. What is clear is that it ain't helping.

With all that money and muscle behind it,
aspartame has evaded its comeuppance for another
year. But the final reckoning can only be postponed, not avoided.

wow, thanks exhunter! My mom had some of the same problems! she cut out the artificial sweetners like aspartame, etc. and started feeling better. then she was put on a new thyriod medication and started feeling the same way again. doc says they just need to get the dosage correct, but I wonder if there is aspartame in the new med she is taking? I had no idea it was in medicines also? I'm going to give her a heads up. thanks exhunter for posting this. I hope you feel better and are able to hunt as much as you want:darkbeer:
