life saving facts -- the life work of an earnest, careful, caring, bold expert,
This review is from: While Science Sleeps (Paperback)This work is the culmination of a professional lifetime dedicated to elucidating the key biochemical details of methanol (formaldehyde) toxicity, starting with a comprehensive warning review in 1984, with 62 references, by the earnest, careful, bold Woodrow "Woody" C. Monte, retired Prof. of Food Science and Nutrition, Arizona State University.
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.

Just Me says:
My father past away very recently from complications to MS. We watched him suffer exteremly for many years and he past away at the young age of 53. I knew in my heart that there was something behind this. He worked for 13 years for a company that delt alot with formaldehyde and methanol. Not only did my dad suffer but many other co-workers of his were diagnosed with brain tumors, alzheimers and gait distubances starting in their 40's which is ATYPICAL! So as I began my research and came across Dr. Monte's chapter 9 on Multiple Sclerosis. I was shocked to read his well informed explanation of this disease secondary to methanol/formaldehyde exposure, which only made my thoughts more concrete. He may have discovered the cause to many of these serious diseases. But these multibillion dollar industries and ,unfortunately, some government agencies are trying to prevent this information from coming to light in fear of losing money. What a shame that the human race is suffering due to their greed. As a nurse I am naturally a caring person. After this hit home with my father and my friends fathers who worked with him I am going to work on getting this through to as many people, goverment agencies and federal agencies as possible. I work for the largest hospital in my state, which is also a teaching hospital. I am going to distribute this information to many nurses, doctors and researchers as I can. I am going to reach out to many MS groups and share this information because they are strongly dedicated to finding a cure but we must also find the CAUSE and this could be it! I will never give up and I am willing to go against these powerful agencies until something is done on behalf of my father and everyone who is watching a loved one suffer or has lost some one dear to them.

Mr. Richard T. Murray says:
Prof. Resia Pretorius letter re aspartame to EJCN cites Prof. Woodrow C. Monte "While Science Sleeps" text, re methanol/formaldehyde toxicity paradigm: Rich Murray 2012.05.21
"In a Science article late in 2011, Wu et al. 1 discussed the fact that various dietary factors have an impact on gut bacteria, including the controversial dietary sweetener, APM.
Recently, in the October 2011 Science Perspective Section, Uri Gophna 2 commented on this observation, stating that it is surprising that even minor concentrations of the artiﬁcial sweetener APM, can modify bacterial communities."
"The observations of Wu et al., as well as a renewed interest in the APM debacle, spurred on by a new prepublication book released by Woodrow Monte 4, entitled `While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills' might urge scientists and regulatory bodies to look at APM again."
