: : 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.

: : F.D.A.
: : Article written by Nancy Markle (1120197)

: : I have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD
: : "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

: : 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 --

: : 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.
