From the Author
This book explains to the average person the fascinating process by which methanol, a poison hidden in aspartame and some other foods, is converted to formaldehyde at the very locations in the human body where these diseases originate, revealing, for the first time, the exact details of the probable cause of each. It is a cautionary tale of the legacy of the danger of a poisonous food additive and the failure of a government, corrupted by greed, to safeguard the health and welfare of its people.
This is a handbook that teaches the tools you need to protect those you love and inform them about the causes of a number of diseases that have, until now, proven inexplicitly elusive to a medical community beholden to Big Pharma ...While Science Sleeps.
Woodrow C. Monte PhD, Emeritus Professor of Nutrition, Arizona State University
The only thing necessary for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing. ~ Edmund Burke.

Dr. Monte's testimony before Congress was instrumental in the prevention of Sulfites from receiving status of US FDA GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) and the implementation of mandatory labeling for most foods that contain this dangerous additive.
Through his research, Dr. Monte has been awarded 22 US patents. He has shared his technical expertise during hundreds of television and radio appearances including a special feature on the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather and 60 Minutes. He is the author of numerous scientific publications and the book While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills.
Dr. Monte is a dedicated scientist with both a Ph.D. and M.S. in Food Science and Nutrition and a B.S. in Biology. He has been a Registered Dietician, Certified Nutrition Specialist AIN, professional member of the American Chemical Society and emeritus member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. In 1985, he was chosen by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars as a Senior Fulbright Scholar.

His work is backed up by 745 free online full text medical research references, so experts can quickly peer review his logic and evidence.
Aspartame is indeed 11% methanol (wood alcohol), which the human body quickly turns into formaldehyde via the ADH1 enzyme, concentrated in many tissues: liver, kidney, brain, retina, skin, muscle, lung, prostate, breast, womb, fetus -- forming cumulative micro lesions, binding to and disabling DNA, RNA, and proteins, and so causing a wide variety of diseases.
Other methanol (formaldehyde) sources include wood and cigarette smoke, some dark wines and liquors, fruits juices vegetables preserved wet in sealed metal glass plastic containers, smoked fermented spoiled foods, and aspartame, as well as a variety of products ranging from medicines to new carpet, drapes, and furniture to mobile homes.
People vary enormously in individual vulnerability.
