Dr. Woodrow Monte
"Simply put, I believe that Aspartame is a poison because it turns into poison when consumed. The gist of my objection to the sweetener is that every molecule of it releases a molecule of methanol which, in turn, is metabolized into formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is a carcinogen (causes cancer) and methanol a teratogen (causes birth defects). "
Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, a groundbreaking documentary by Cori Brackett, reveals one of the most pervasive, insidious forms of corporate negligence since tobacco. This new film investigates the toxic, long-term effects of aspartame, problems the sweetener industry continues to deny and discredit as a hoax.
"A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep."
Dangers of Aspartame
“Audi et alteram partem”
My name is Woodrow Monte. By interest and training, I am a scientist. Until retirement as Professor at Arizona State University and, for a short while, at the Marine Science Center of Oregon State University, my career was devoted to research and teaching of the composition and safety of foods. For 25 years I have had serious concerns about the consequences of Aspartame/methanol consumption.
I fully realize that it is not common for a scientist to take his concerns directly to the public. There are time honored channels within the scientific community to redress, filter and disseminate science to guard against misinformation and error. This process is particularly important when dealing with issues concerning the public health and chronic disease.
This system has developed over hundreds of years, fostered by various societies of intellectuals whose primary goal was to further truth for the sake of humanity and health.
As you would expect, there have always been charlatans in the mix; snake oil peddlers whose quest for a personal gain directly conflicted with the goals of the scientific community. It has not been until recent times, however, that merchants and masters of commerce have wielded serious detrimental influence in what had been the realm of the scholar.
Scientific data I offer for your consideration here on this public forum directly conflicts with information advanced by several powerful factions of these conspirators. Because of their influence, important data directly relevant to public health has little or no chance of a fair hearing in the toxicological arena. Denied access to due process and fair consideration, I had to choose between silent knowing and open public disclosure. The choice was difficult because, in doing this, I know I will weaken my case in the eyes of many of my peers but I have made it and there is no turning back.
“Inter arma silent leges”
I direct this discourse to scholars who like to read out of their field and taste the thrill of uncovering data that can be fairly interpreted only from a naive view. Perhaps in the future, this thesis will be deemed an example of simple logic gone awry. If so, I will take full blame and offer as my only defense that I think it cowardly to keep this compelling story to myself until the world was safe for it, until all the demons were dead. I urge my colleagues around the world to take these observations I will present to heart. Methanol may be natural, common and chemically placid. It may have many convenient friends and protectors but this belies its true nature. Methanol is a Trojan Horse which harbors the cause of some of our most tortuous maladies. Methanol begets formaldehyde which morphs to formaldehyde hydrate, a two headed monster capable of altering, in degrees imperceptible to our healing arts, the very stuff of which we are made, a change that only nature can know.
