Dear Commissioner:

     For the past ______________________ I have been plagued by the following
health problems: (Use this space for generalizations. Use back of letter or other pages for in-depth and
supporting information)

    I recently learned that aspartame, the packaged sweetening agent called Equal,
NutraSweet, and other names, is in fact a dangerous toxic substance unfit for
human consumption.

    After the total elimination of this substance from my diet the symptoms listed
above have either disappeared, or are greatly diminished.

    According to your MISSION statement, the FDA must:

1.    Base regulatory decisions on a b scientific and analytical base and the
law; and understand, conduct and apply excellent science and research.

2.   Be honest, fair and accountable in all of our actions and decisions.

     The above stated mission characteristics were not applied to this toxic drug.
I understand that your predecessor, Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes, disregarded the
fraudulent nature of test documentation submitted by Searle, and then overruled
his own FDA Board of Inquiry to allow this substance on the open market.  The FDA
action of 27 June, 1996, allowing aspartame to be use in everything, including in
heated foodstuffs, greatly compounds the gravity of this tragic action.

    Those actions were not in keeping with the stated FDA mission, and were
taken with total disregard to human health and safety.

    Aspartame is a Pandora's box of nightmarish effects that strikes men, women,
and children with confusing and un-correctable symptoms.  It strikes especially
hard at those who are most diet conscious for they are the ones most prone to
use this drug. It is time to end a growing World-Wide epidemic by recognizing
aspartame for what it is, a slow-acting poison now in over 7000 foodstuffs in over
90 countries.

    As a United States Citizen, one who helps pay your salary and provide you
with facilities, I expect you to perform your duties according to the letter of the
law and the Food and Drug Administration charter.  To this end, I demand that
aspartame be reclassified as a dangerous toxin, a drug that is unfit for human
consumption, and be banned from all foodstuffs.
