Aspartame Ban in Process in New Mexico

Aspartame/Formaldehyde Ban Press Conference; NM Capitol Rotunda 2 PM, Monday regarding New Mexico Senate Aspartame/Methanol/Formaldehyde Ban Bill, SB 654 (Senator Ortiz y Pino)

Cori Brackett and her film revealing the vast epidemiological scourge of Aspartame, will be presented in Senator Ortiz y Pino's Press Conference. A copy of her film will be given to every legislator. After seeing it, they will recognize the urgent public health crisis if Aspartame/Methanol/Formaldehyde is not banned in New Mexico, and perhaps all 112 Legislators will ask Governor William Blaine Richardson III to champion this legislative ban on Aspartame. To not do so before this legislative session ends: what a carte blance and green light it sends to every neurotoxic and carcinogenic food additive manufacturer in the world, that they, not the Legislature and the Governor, are in control!

Dr. Betty Martini, Founder of Mission Possible Interntional, an organization of physicians, lawyers, and aspartame poisoning victims, will be present as well in this important press conference.

We look forward to screening Cori Brackett's film, Sweet Misery, in the New Mexico Capitol, on Tuesday, Native American Day, and recognize the fortuitous coincidence of this effort reaching out to inform one of the groups most vulnerable to neurotoxic carcinogens, the Native American
population of New Mexico.

Bill Text is at:

The press conference is in response to NM Senate Public Affairs Committee
voting 7-2 on Friday to table SB 654. 6 our of 7 of the Senators voting to
table regularly drink Diet Coke. Corporate lobbyists spoke at length,
representing Coca Cola, Pepsi Cola, Ajinomoto of Japan (the world's largest
manufacturer of neurotoxic aspartame and of Monosodium Glutamate), the
Calorie Control Council (an industry front group), and the New Mexico Soft
Drink Association, all of whom have so much to lose if aspartame is banned.

Majority Whip Senator Mary Jane Garcia (D-Las Cruces), one of the bill's
original signators and cosponsors, spoke of her need as a diabetic to
continue to consume Diet Coke, and apologized for her having to withdrawal
her support of the bill, despite medical counsel for her not to continue to
consume a product metabolized as formaldehyde as a way of protecting not
destroying her pancreas. We are sure that her "about-face" in support
resulted from pressure by corporate lobbyists from Coca Cola.

The lobbyists for Ajinomoto now include Michael Stratton of Colorado, U.S.
Senator Ken Salazar's campaign manager, currently on the Democratic National
Committee's (DNC) Presidential Nomination and Scheduling Commission.

There are several Parliamentary procedures that can be used to achieve the
enactment of this SB654, which includes a $100,000 to the office of the New
Mexico Attorney General for enforcement.


Such a ban on Aspartame/Methanol/Formaldehyde as a food additive will
prevent and heal numerous neurodegenerative and carcinogenic illnesses.

Further, Aspartame/Methanol/Formaldehyde has been allowed by the United
States Food and Drug Administration to be included in hundreds of children's
medications, aspirin, vitamins, as well as used as a sweetener for many
adult medications, for example: Parcopa (Schwarz Pharmaceuticals-Chicago,
Illinois), used to treat Parkinson's Disease.

The presence of Aspartame/Methanol/Formaldehyde in medications is presently
the subject of a petition for rule change before the New Mexico Board of
Pharmacy, as well as a petition to end the use of Thimerosal/Mercury in
vaccines, based on the same statutory powers of the New Mexico Board of
