Mission Possible World Health International
Dr. Betty Martini

Dr. Betty Martini is the founder of the worldwide volunteer force, Mission Possible World Health International, which is committed to removing the deadly chemical aspartame from our food. Out of 10,000 consumer complaints, the FDA has compiled a list of 92 symptoms of “Aspartame Disease,” including death. That symptom list is available from the FDA through the Freedom of Information Act. Betty began Mission Possible International in 1993.Thousands of Americans are addicted to this substance which breaks down into methyl alcohol, formaldehyde, formic acid (ant sting venom) and a long list of other poisons including diketopiperazine, a brain tumor agent. Brain tumors, lupus, MS, seizures, damaged infants and immeasurable damage to human DNA that desolates future generations, are the curses of aspartame. “Worst of all,” Dr. Martini says, “It’s not a diet product. Aspartame defeats the brain’s ability to detect serotonin so [people] crave carbohydrates. And because of the damage to the hypothalamus some consumers suddenly drop dead. This may be associated with recent sudden death of athletes.” An award winning website called by David Rietz offers a river of aspartame facts containing much of Dr. Martini’s work. On this site you‘ll also find Dr. Blaylock’s paper entitled “Aspartame, MSG and Other Excitotoxins and the Hypothalamus.”In l984 Dr. H. J. Roberts, M.D., was recognized by the national medical publication “Practice 84,” as the best doctor in the United States. He recently published a 1,000 page medical text: “Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic”—the most comprehensive study in the world on aspartame. He dedicated this work to Dr. Martini who herself, has collected thousands of case histories on the damage done by aspartame. Martini is considered an international authority on this subject.Dr. Martini has three grown children, two sons and a daughter who is a missionary. Her husband, Don, is an ordained minister. They perform this work as an expression of the love of neighbor the Bible teaches, and have nothing to sell and no financial motivation. Betty’s work is pure charity which she explains with this quote: “Deliver those being taken away to death and those staggering to the slaughter. O may you hold them back. In case you should say ‘Look! We did not know of this’ will not He that is making an estimate of the hearts discern it and pay back to earthling man according to his activity?” Proverbs 24:11Visit Betty at the National Health Federation website at
