Aspartame & Aspartame Poisoning
Aspartame, the artificial sweetener used to make Nutrasweet / Equal and sometimes labeled as phenylalanine in products, has been the subject of controversy - both because of its safety and the circumstances surrounding its approval. Considering possible connections between aspartame and diseases such as brain tumors, brain lesions, and lymphoma, and taking into account alleged conflicts of interest during the approval process, you owe it to yourself to learn the facts - not simply what the lobbyists and manufacturer want you to know.

Why DORway? DORway stands for David Oliver Riet'z WAY of paying back the Internet for providing the small, hard-to-find (and oblique) aspartame article he nearly missed, but that he credited with extending his life. That file was the 1996 FDA list of 92 symptoms of aspartame poisoning. This site contains about 800 Web pages of solid documentation showing that aspartame is neither a decent diet aid, nor was it ever proven to be safe for human consumption! Aspartame must be removed from our diet, but only you, the consumer, can effect its removal. In creating DORway, Dave's primary concern lay with the 250,000,000 unknowing victims (Monsanto's own figure) - all of whom are in some (guaranteed) stage of "aspartame disease," and who, as he once did, may desperately NEED this aspartame information. But even with over four million visitors (as of Nov. 23, 2003), DORway has reached but a small percentage of these folks. Please pass this FREE health-restoring and perhaps life-saving information to everyone you care about!
The "cure" for those with "aspartame poisoning" is FREE. There can be nothing "controversial" about eliminating something from one's diet and waking up feeling better.
Try the FREE at-home 60-day NO-aspartame self-test, and simply observe the results. All we ask is that each and every visitor tell at least TWO others about DORway and about the dangers of Aspartame. And if they have Internet access, capture and use the aspartame help.txt info file that has a good overview of DORway and commented links to the aspartame articles on this huge site.
Aspartame Poisoning - NOT an Internet Hoax
DORway.com opened Searle's "Pandora's" book of facts on aspartame during September of 1996. For over four years Monsanto (who bought Searle in 1985), their many PR and law firms, visited DORway.com many thousands of times (documented by IP addresses). The FDA, CDC and other entities visited, as well. The highly litigious Monsanto was unable to find anything to use against the site in an effort to close it down and relieve the growing pressures on its dying aspartame cash cow. Obviously, they cannot argue with the documentation (the most damning of which comes from the FDA and sworn testimony).
While two anti-aspartame Web sites (1996) grew to tens of thousands (as of October, 2001, Google.com had over 80,000), and while Nutrasweet's 28 million pounds of aspartame sold during 1996 slipped to only 20 million pounds during 1998, Monsanto sought to counter the truth (and their negative "good growth") with pro-aspartame WEB sites. When the "Nancy Markle" Email appeared during December, 1998, Monsanto and friends panicked. Monsanto, FDA, ADA, IFIC, MSFacts, TIME, CNN, LA Times, and a lot more who stood to LOSE if aspartame were recalled, ALL JOINED HANDS to call our information and the facts an "Internet hoax." Want a hint at the whole truth? Simply compare their messages, and then look for the $$$ connection. And the FDA? Just think future industry jobs and the fact that they are culpable of approving this cumulative toxic poison.
During mid February, 1999, while the many PRO aspartame articles seemed to be failing to turn the tide, Monsanto seemed to have made a momentous decision and stopped visiting DORway until after July. In April, they sold their Phenylalanine facilities (half of aspartame) to Great Lakes Chemical (GLC) for 125 million dollars. (A year later, GLC sued Monsanto for the 71 MILLION dollar shortfall in expected sales.) On the first of July, 1999, Monsanto put the Nutrasweet Co. on the auction block with TWO other companies - THREE of which had "combined sales of a billion dollars." So much for "good growth". It took another 10 months for Monsanto to find an investment firm that would relieve them of their growing burden.
Note: Dr. Friedman, who quit the FDA when Jane Henney was selected to become the permanent FDA commissioner (1999), elected to sign on with G. D. Searle as a senior vice president at a purported cushy $500,000 a year. He went to work for someone he was supposed to regulate. Could this new job be his reward for ignoring citizen complaints and defending aspartame and rbGH? Perhaps more importantly, does the U.S. have a congress that cares? Is there a justice department really interested in prosecuting fraud and genocide for huge profits? So far, the answers have all been NO!
