“Life saving facts — the life work of an earnest, careful, caring, bold expert”
by Mr. Richard T. Murray

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 Nutrition, Arizona State University.

He has been sharing his research with me since 1999, including parts of this masterpiece, as it evolved during the last three years.

Aspartame is indeed 11% methanol (wood alcohol), which the human body quickly turns into formaldehyde via the ADH 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 symptoms.

Other methanol (formaldehyde) sources include wood and tobacco smoke, dark wines and liquors, fruits and vegetables heated in sealed metal and glass containers, 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.
