In Response To: Re: Aspartame (Peter D'Adamo)

Yes... a designer chemical is a good handle. From what I know
and have heard... blood type has no bearing on toxicicity. Time,
quantity ingested during that time, and individual susceptibility
determine when any given user will get a nasty "wake up" call.

In my case it took fifteen years of Equal in my coffee (less then
1/3 the ADI) for me to have gone through 21 clueless doctors and
consider Dr. Kevorkian to be my last. For others, the reactions
can take place within minutes.

L-Aspartyl-l-phenylalanine methyl ester, 98%, aspartame (a.k.a.
Equal, NutraSweet, Spoonful, Benevia, Equal Measure, etc.) is
composed of (at least) three things:

1.) aspartic acid, (around 40%) ** No info/bad cas #
2.) phenylalanine, (around 50%) cas # 63-91-2
3.) methanol (wood alcohol) (10%) cas # 67-56-1

(two dimensional representation)

The phenylalanine breaks down into diketopiperazine (DKP), a known tumor
agent, and it is the reason for the FDA mandated "PHENYLKETONURICS:
Contains phenylalanine" (PKU) warning label. Diketopiperazine was also
the major empediment to approval noted in the Searle "Helling" memo

The methanol (with no natural antidote of Ethanol) breaks down in-solution
(diet coke, whatever) 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 (and this is perhaps called "weight gain"). What is not stored
in the fat is further converted to formic acid (same thing as ant sting

So, with each swig EACH user gets a micro-dose of three poisons, two of
which (formaldehyde and formic acid) are known carcinogens... along with
that side-order of DKP, the tumor agent. A science report was done with
diet cokes, that was evaluated by a reputable food laboratory, proved the
methanol -> formaldehyde conversion, even in the unopened container
cooling off in the refrigerator, and the phenylalanine to DKP conversion.
The damage/problems caused by the use
of aspartame are noted in the FDA's own compiled list of 92 symptoms of
aspartame poisoning

A fairly complete list of aspartame breakdown components from the
aspartic acid, phenylalanine, and methanol is as follows:

Formaldehyde (embalming fluid) cas # 50-00-0
Formic Acid (same as ant sting poison/paint stripper) cas # 64-18-6
Beta Aspartame **
Aspartylphenylalanine **
Aspartylphenylalanine amide **
Tyrosine cas # 60-18-4
L-Dopa **
Dopamine **
Norepinephrine **
Epinephrine **
Phenylethylamine cas # 64-04-0
Phenylpyruvate **
Phenylactic acid **
Phenylacetic acid cas # 103-82-2
Diketopiperazine (DKP) cas # 106-57-0

** (No page for item at:
cas = Chemical Abstracts Service, registry number

Perhaps the phrase that best applies is that "ASPARTAME
is a Pandora's box of chameleon-like toxins and tumor agents
that have 92 FDA acknowledged ways to ruin your life, death
being one of them".
