THE TRUTH ABOUT ASPARATAME

DIET or DEADLY?

Aspartame - The Food Industries Biggest Headache is a Deadly Poison

Millions of people in over 90 countries will suffer and even die due to FDA approved food additives currently found in over 5000 products. These deadly chemicals called excitotoxins are as common as every sugar-free and salt-free label you see in your supermarket. The most deadly is probably being consumed in mass quantities by yourself and your children RIGHT NOW! Aspartame commonly known as Nutrasweet, Equal, or Spoonful and soon to be many other brands now that the patent has run out, is this deadly culprit.

I'm sure I'm not the only person who has wondered why in our modern society we are supposedly living longer and healthier when in reality more and more are suffering the ravages of Cancer, Diabetes, Systemic Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's diseases. There are likely many people you know suffering from "common" symptoms of chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, memory loss, headaches, insomnia, panic or anxiety attacks, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in the legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), joint pain, slurred speech, or blurred vision. According to Betty Martini and Dr. Episto (who spent several days lecturing at the World Environmental Conference) and other world experts such as Dr. H. J. Roberts and Dr. Russell Blaylock Neurosurgeon, people suffering from these illnesses who use Nutrasweet or like sweeteners have Aspartame disease.

How could this be you ask? Surely if it is allowed to be sold in stores it must have been proven safe! Not so, even the FDA and US Congressional Hearings since 1980's heard evidence that this deadly poison caused brain tumors and mammary tumors in lab rats, and in another study in 1969 by Searle one monkey died and others had Grand Mal Seizures. In fact 80% of the complaints to the FDA about food additives are about this deadly drug. Even still they approved the use of Aspartame through the powerful lobby and deep pockets of MONSANTO (who reaps $1 billion/year from Aspartame) and the food industry giants who saw the profit potential in all those "catchy" labels that would sucker millions world-wide. It's in diets drinks, chewing gum, antibiotics, vitamins, baked goods, and probably most of the packaged goods in your kitchen cupboard. If not this sweetener then surely one of its equally deadly chemical cousins, glutamate (usually Monosodium Glutamate, MSG), autolyzed yeast, casseinate and ingredient names containing "hydrolyzed" (as in hydrolyzed vegetable protein).

The "watchdog" agencies like the FDA, World Health Organization, and European Communities and even the American Medical Association have reviewed much evidence that these substances are linked to the above mentioned illnesses and neural pathway disturbances, behavioral problems in children (such as ADD), inexplicable weight gain even permanent brain damage and all have concluded that they are basically safe for the majority of the population, presumably in small doses. In America the annual consumption of the three most common exitotoxins is estimated to be 160 million pounds - 10 times more than the annual consumption of a popular spice like oregano. Since it is everywhere it is likely that the "majority of the population" are getting mega doses. Further because Aspartame is a drug (an ulcer drug found by accident to taste sweet) it is even more dangerous when combined with other excitotoxins (as in your MSG laden fast food burger and diet drink) or prescription medication. How does it abuse the body? Aspartame is a molecule with three main components: aspartic acid, phenalalanine and methanol. Once absorbed the wood alcohol converts to formaldehyde and formic acid (ant sting poison!). That's right! Formaldehyde is the common embalming fluid and deadly carcinogen. All of these cause metabolic acidosis, and that methanol toxicity mimics Multiple Sclerosis. Some experts believe that people are being diagnosed in error with MS. Multiple Sclerosis is not a death sentence but methanol toxicity is.

It has even been suggested that the bizarre and deadly symptoms of Desert Storm Disease experience by over 6000 troops are due to the methanol that was liberated from Aspartame in the diet drinks that sat in the 120 degree Arabian sun for 8 weeks at a time. The cases of Systemic Lupus (triggered by Aspartame) have become almost as rampant, especially with Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi drinkers. Those with methanol toxicity usually drink three to four of them a day. "The victim usually does not know that it is the culprit and continues its use aggravating it to such a degree that sometimes it is life threatening" says Betty Martini. When people get off Aspartame, those with systemic lupus become asymptomatic and those with methanol toxicity misdiagnose with MS all symptoms disappear even vision and hearing returns.

This deadly toxin also affects Diabetics. It keeps their blood sugar out of control, many losing their memory and going into comas, while doctors can't figure it out. The common symptoms of diabetic retinopathy may actually be due to Aspartame converting to formaldehyde in the retina of the eye causing blindness. Memory loss is due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenalalanine are neurotoxic without the other amino acids in protein and goes past the blood brain barrier deteriorating the neurons of the brain. Dr. Russell Blaylock Neurosurgeon and author of EXCITOTOXINS: THE TASTE THAT KILLS, said "the ingredients stimulate the neurons of the brain to death causing brain damage of varying degrees". He also states that Aspartame may trigger clinical diabetes.

In an abstract submitted by Dr. H.J. Roberts to the American Dietetic Association (ADA), he says, "I now advise ALL patients with diabetes and hypoglycemia to avoid Aspartame products". So why is Aspartame still the #1 sweetener recommended and used abundantly on hospital diabetic menus by Dietitians? The NY Times in Nov.15 ran an article on how the ADA take money from the food industry (including Monsanto) to endorse their products and therefore cannot criticize any additive. Aspartame changes the brain chemistry and may also be the reason for the tremendous increase in seizures in America. Today North America is swept by a rage of violence. Researchers attribute this in part to the low seratonin levels in the brain. I guess it's not so surprising that the Phenalalanine in Aspartame Lowers the seizure threshold of the brain and blocks seratonin.

There are also many Pregnancy and Conception risks.

YOU CAN DO something, copy this article and pass it on to every mother, dieter and teenager you know. Check your labels and get all Aspartame products out of the house. If it says sugarfree - forget it!

There is a wealth of additional information on aspartame on the web, all you have to do is search. You will most likely find articles both, Pro and Con for Asparatame, It is up to you to decide what you want to believe.
