: All should read this Please take the time It could save you from a life time of misery, "ASPARTAME /marketed as 'Nutra-Sweet', 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. When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde witch turns into formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. ( this form of 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. In the case of systemic lupus, they are finding it has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially in 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 they got people off the aspartame, those with systemic lupus usually become asymptotic. 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. They have seen cases where their vision has returned and even their hearing has returned. This also applies to cases of tinnitus. "If you are using ASPARTAME (Nutra-Sweet, 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!" There were Congressional Hearings in which 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 the 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". A Dr. Roberts state's 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 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 neuro-toxins 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, diabetes 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 on some case histories and will post it on the Internet. According to the Conference of the American College of Physicians, they are talking about a plague of neurological diseases caused by this deadly poison". Dr. Roberts realizes 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) This poison is now available in 90 PLUS countries worldwide. Fortunately, 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 me your results. I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame knows how deadly this 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 can not criticize any additives or tell about their link to MONSANTO. How bad is it. 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 Dessert 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 Dessert 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 woman 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 Elias, 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) 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 could be ideal for diabetics, has now been approved as a dietary supplement by the FDA. For years, the FDA 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! 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 institute independent studies on the problems existing in the population (seizures, changes in brain chemistry, changes in neurological and behavioral symptoms). The powerful drug and chemical lobbies killed it. Letting loose the hundreds of disease and death on an unsuspecting public. 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. Take a look at what you are doing that maybe killing you. What is 4 weeks try a natural diet. it could be a life time of joy. I'd bet on you. Timfxd
WARNING AGAIN! THIS IS NOT NEW!
That is another one of those WARNINGS that is suppose to send you into a panic, I've read many years ago and still noone has come up with the actual scientific documents. Aspartame is still on the market and would have been pulled by now if everything in said document was actually verified. I personally have never drank or ate a product with any artificial sweetener because I believe the real thing is better and if I could not have sugar for one reason or another I would just stop eating anything with sugar, period, end of. Can't see how it could be healthy, but a la natural has it's own problems too. We've listened to this stuff before, eggs are bad, then oh not so bad, red meat is bad, oh a little won't hurt. Milk is bad, oh just drink it with acidolphilis and so on and so forth. We need to use caution when sending out messages of this sort, people like to jump on any band wagon out of fear. I have peripheral neuropathy, MVP, cervical disc disease,pernicious anemia, and a host of central nerve problems and I have never touched Aspartame, sweet N low or others like it, I read all labels because of just that. Most things in moderation and you can bet you won't be pulled into the warning hype that some fanatics run with, or want to pull you into their idea of a healthy diet which can be just as unhealthy. Sorry I don't mean to be judgemental but I get so sick and tired of these warnings that never amount to anything but just that with no documentation to go with it....Nancy H
