In Reply to: Artificial Sweetner's ie. Nurtasweet by Monsanto posted by Lynne O'Larey on March 13, 1999 at 13:39:49:

: Just to let you folks know but I also heard that aspertain was also used as a chemical warfare agent back in the 50's by the US gov't.


: Important Warning!!

: I received this information by E-mail from my daughter Diana and felt
: it should be posted everywhere possible. I have always felt that artificial sweeteners were bad for your health. I
: have read little articles here and there, that stood to prove my ideas, but
: never any with real back bone. I myself get very sick with even a few sips
: of a drink that contains artificial sweeteners. Please read this article, I
: know it is long. And then pass it on to anyone else you care about. Thank
: you, Diana Manseau, 7M Farm This letter came to me from a friend in
: Nashville. Please read it and forward it to anyone you can.

: WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE and the
: MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS FOUNDATION
: F.D.A.
: ISSUING FOR COLLUSION WITH MONSANTO
: Article written by Nancy Markle (1120197)

: I have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD
: ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on
: "ASPARTAME marketed as 'NutraSweet', 'Equal', and 'Spoonful"'.
: In the keynote address by the EPA, they announced that there was
: an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus, and they did
: not understand what toxin was causing this to be rampant across
: the United States. I explained that I was there to lecture on exactly
: that subject.

: When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the
: wood alcohol in ASPARTAME coverts to formaldehyde and then
: to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis.
: (Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants.) The
: methanol toxicity mimics multiple sclerosis; thus people were
: being diagnosed with having multiple sclerosis in error.
: The multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, where methanol
: toxicity is.

: In the case of systemic lupus, we are finding it has become almost as
: rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi
: drinkers. Also, with methanol toxicity, the victims usually drink three
: to four 12 oz. cans of them per day, some even more. In the cases
: of systemic lupus, which is triggered by ASPARTAME, the victim
: usually does not know that the aspartame is the culprit The victim
: continues its use aggravating the lupus to such a degree, that
: sometimes it becomes life threatening.

: When we get people off the aspartame, those with systemic lupus
: usually become asymptomatic. Unfortunately, we cannot reverse
: this disease. On the other hand, in the case of those diagnosed
: with Multiple Sclerosis, (when in reality, the disease is methanol
: toxicity), most of the symptoms disappear. We have seen cases
: where their vision has returned and even their hearing has
: returned. This also applies to cases of tinnitus. During a lecture
: I said "If you are using ASPARTAME (NutraSweet, Equal,
: Spoonful, etc.) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms,
: spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo,
: dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety
: attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss --
: you probably have ASPARTAME DISEASE!"

: People were jumping up during the lecture saying, "I've got this,
: is it reversible?" It is rampant. Some of the speakers at my
: lecture even were suffering from these symptoms. In one lecture
: attended by the Ambassador of Uganda, he told us that their
: sugar industry is adding aspartame! He continued by saying that
: one of the industry leader's son could no longer walk - due in
: part by product usage! We have a very serious problem.
: Even a stranger came up to Dr. Espisto (one of my speakers)
: and myself and said, 'Could you tell me why so many people
: seem to be coming down with MS? During a visit to a hospice,
: a nurse said that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet Coke
: addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond
: coincidence. Here is the problem. There were Congressional
: Hearings when aspartame was included in 100 different products.
: Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings,
: but to no avail. Nothing as been done. The drug and chemical
: lobbies have very deep pockets. Now there are over 5,000
: products containing this chemical, and the
: PATENT HAS EXPIRED!!!!!

: At the time of this first hearing, people were going blind.
: The methanol in the aspartame converts to formaldehyde in the
: retina of the eye. Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class
: of drugs as cyanide and arsenic -- DEADLY POISONS!!!
: Unfortunately, it just takes longer to quietly kill, but it is
: killing people and causing all kinds of neurological problems.

: Aspartame changes the brain's chemistry. It is the reason for
: severe seizures. This drug changes the dopamine level in the
: brain. Imagine what this drug does to patients suffering from
: Parkinson's Disease. This drug also causes Birth Defects.

: There is absolutely no reason to take this product. It is
: NOT A DIET PRODUCT!!! The Congressional record said,
: "It makes you crave carbohydrates and will make you FAT".
: Dr. Roberts stated that when he got patients off aspartame,
: their average weight loss was 19 pounds per person. The
: formaldehyde stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips
: and thighs.

: Aspartame is especially deadly for diabetics. All physicians
: know what wood alcohol will do to a diabetic. We find that
: physicians believe that they have patients with retinopathy,
: when in fact, it is caused by the aspartame. The aspartame
: keeps the blood sugar level out of control, causing many
: patients to go into a coma. Unfortunately, many have died.

: People were telling us at the Conference of the American
: College of Physicians, that they had relatives that switched
: from saccharin to an aspartame product and how that relative
: had eventually gone into a coma. Their physicians could not
: get the blood sugar levels under control. Thus, the patients
: suffered acute memory loss and eventually coma and death.

: Memory loss is due to the fact that aspartic acid and
: phenylalanine are neurotoxic without the other amino acids
: found in protein. Thus it goes past the blood brain barrier and
: deteriorates the neurons of the brain. Dr.Russell Blaylock,
: neurosurgeon, said, "The ingredients stimulates the neurons of
: the brain to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees.
: Dr. Blaylock has written a book entitled EXCITOTOXINS:
: THE TASTE THAT KILLS" (Health Press 1-800-643-2665).
: Dr. H.J. Roberts, diabetic specialist and world expert on
: aspartame poisoning, has also written a book entitled DEFENSE
: AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE" (1-800-814-9800).
: Dr. Roberts tells how aspartame poisoning is escalating
: Alzheimer's Disease, and indeed it is. As the hospice
: nurse told me, women are being admitted at 30 years of age
: with Alzheimer's Disease. Dr. Blaylock and Dr. Roberts will
: be writing a position paper with some case histories and will
: post it on the Internet.

: According to the Conference of the American College of
: Physicians, 'We are talking about a plague of neurological
: diseases caused by this deadly poison".

: Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when aspartame
: was first marketed. He said "his diabetic patients presented
: memory loss, confusion, and severe vision loss". At the
: Conference of the American College of Physicians, doctors
: admitted that they did not know. They had wondered why
: seizures were rampant (the phenylalanine in aspartame breaks
: down the seizure threshold and depletes serotonin, which
: causes manic depression, panic attacks, rage and violence).

: Just before the Conference, I received a FAX from Norway,
: asking for a possible antidote for this poison because they are
: experiencing so many problems in their country. This poison is
: now available in 90 PLUS countries worldwide. Fortunately,
: we had speakers and ambassadors at the Conference from
: different nations who have pledged their help. We ask that you
: help too. Print this article out and warn everyone you know.
: Take anything that contains aspartame back to the store. Take
: the "NO ASPARTAME TEST" and send us your case history.

: I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of aspartame,
: knows how deadly it is. They fund the American Diabetes
: Association, American Dietetic Association, Congress, and
: the Conference of the American College of Physicians. The
: New York Times, on November 15, 1996, ran an article
: on how the American Dietetic Association takes money
: from the food industry to endorse their products.

: Therefore, they cannot criticize any additives or tell about
: their link to MONSANTO. How bad is this? We told a
: mother who had a child on NutraSweet to get off the
: product. The child was having grand mal seizures every day.
: The mother called her physician, who called the ADA,
: who told the doctor not to take the child off the NutraSweet.

: We are still trying to convince the mother that the
: aspartame is causing the seizures. Every time we get
: someone off of aspartame, the seizures stop. If the baby
: dies, you know whose fault it is, and what we are up against.
: There are 92 documented symptoms of aspartame, from
: coma to death. The majority of them are all neurological,
: because the aspartame destroys the nervous system.

: Aspartame Disease is partially the cause to what is behind
: some of the mystery of the Desert Storm health problems.
: The burning tongue and other problems discussed in over
: 60 cases can be directly related to the consumption of an
: aspartame product. Several thousand pallets of diet drinks
: were shipped to the Desert Storm troops. (Remember heat
: can liberate the methanol from the aspartame at 86 degrees F).
: Diet drinks sat in the 120 degree F. Arabian sun for weeks at
: a time on pallets. The service men and women drank them all
: day long.

: All of their symptoms are identical to aspartame poisoning.
: Dr. Roberts says "consuming aspartame at the time of conception
: can cause birth defects". The phenylalanine concentrates in the
: placenta, causing mental retardation, according to Dr. Louis Elsas,
: Pediatrician Professor - Genetics, at Emory University in his
: testimony before Congress.

: In the original lab tests, animals developed brain tumors
: (phenylalanine breaks down into DXP, a brain tumor agent).
: When Dr. Espisto was lecturing on aspartame me, one
: physician in the audience, a neurosurgeon, said, "when
: they remove brain tumors, they have found high levels
: of aspartame in them".

: Stevia, a sweet food, NOT AN ADDITIVE, which helps in
: the metabolism of sugar, which would be ideal for diabetics,
: has now been approved as a dietary supplement by the
: F.D.A. For years, the F.D.A. has outlawed this sweet
: food because of their loyalty to MONSANTO.

: If it says "SUGAR FREE" on the label --
: DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!l!

: Senator Howard Hetzenbaum wrote a bill that would have
: warned all infants, pregnant mothers and children of the
: dangers of aspartame. The bill would have also instituted
: independent studies on the problems existing in the population
: (seizures, changes in brain chemistry, changes in neurological
: and behavioral symptoms). It was killed by the powerful
: drug and chemical lobbies, letting loose the hounds of disease
: and death on an unsuspecting public. Since the Conference
: of the American College of Physicians, we hope to have the
: help of some world leaders. Again, please help us too.
:

: There are a lot of people out there who must be warned,
: please let them know this information. This could be
: considered life saving information for some of you and
: your friends and relatives. I've forwarded it to everyone
: I can contact. If you know people who drink diet sodas
: on a regular basis, get this message to them!!! Make sure
: and lay off the Diet Soda and other stuff with NutraSweet.

: People's lives are at stake! What you now know can make
: an important difference.
