Aspartame, also labeled as ‘Equal’, “Spoonful’ and ‘NutraSweet’ is an artificial sweetener that is an excitotoxin. It should never have been made legal. This author read that in one test of the drug that occurred at Arizona State University, the rats used in the study died. The researchers just substituted new rats and continued the study.
Aspartame is one of the worst food chemicals and is found in many “Diet”’ and “Sugar-Free” processed food products. If you use any of them, then the following letter may apply to you:
A Letter from a Friend:
In October of 2001, my sister started becoming very ill. She had stomach spasms and she was having a hard time getting around. Walking was a major chore. It took everything she had just to get out of bed as she was in so much pain.
By March 2002, she had undergone several tissue and muscle biopsies and was on 24 various prescription medications. The doctors could not determine what was wrong with her.
She was in so much pain, and so sick, she just knew she was dying. She put her house, bank accounts, life insurance, etc., in her oldest daughter’s name, and made sure that her younger children were to be taken care of. She also wanted her last hooray, so she planned a trip to Florida (basically in a wheelchair) for March 22nd.
On March 19, I called her to ask how her most recent tests went, and she said they didn’t find anything on the test, but they believed she had MS. I recalled an article a friend of mine e-mailed to me and I asked my sister if she drank diet soda? She told me that she did. As a matter of fact, she was getting ready to crack one open that moment.
I told her not to open it, and to stop drinking the diet soda! I e-mailed the article to her that my friend, a lawyer, had sent.
My sister called me within 32 hours after our phone conversation and told me she had stopped drinking the diet soda AND she could walk! The muscle spasms went away. She said she didn’t feel 100% but she sure felt a lot better.
In a nutshell, she was being poisoned by the Aspartame in the diet soda… and literally dying a slow and miserable death. Now she is well on her way to a complete recovery. And she is walking! No wheelchair!
THE CAUSES OF THE PROBLEM
Aspartame is dangerous because when the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid. This is causes metabolic acidosis and other problems. Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants.
Methanol toxicity may also occur with aspartame. It can mimic multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus.
OTHER SYMPTOMS OF ASPARTAME POISONING
These include fibromyalgia symptoms, weight gain, spasms, shooting, pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision and memory loss.
Weight loss. Dr. H. J. Roberts stated in his lectures that once free of the “diet products” and with no significant increase in exercise, his patients lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period.
ASPARTAME AND DIABETES
Diabetics often use ‘sugar-free’ products. However, aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics. Retinopathy among diabetics, in fact, can be caused by Aspartame and Aspartame is not helpful for blood sugar control.
Aspartame passes through the blood/brain barrier and damages neurons. This can cause seizures, depression, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, and uncontrollable anger and rage.
ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER AND NUTRASWEET
Some children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when Aspartame and other harmful chemicals were removed from their diets.
According to the Conference of the American College of Physicians, “We are talking about a plague of neurological diseases directly caused by the use of this deadly poison.”
GULF WAR SYNDROME
Aspartame in thousands of pallets of Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War may be the cause of Gulf War Syndrome.
BIRTH DEFECTS AND SEIZURES
Aspartame may cause birth defects if used at the time of conception and during early pregnancy.
WHY DOES NUTRASWEET REMAIN ON THE MARKET?
The short answer is that the American Food And Drug Administration is one of the most corrupt agencies on planet earth. Food and drug regulatory agencies in other nations are not much better, and some are worse.
America has had congressional hearings about Aspartame several times, but nothing was done about the problem. The creator of Aspartame is Monsanto, a company also famous for their GMO foods. There are many excellent companies, but Monstanto is a Rogue-owned company. For details, read The Rogues.
Monsanto funds the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic Association and the Conference of the American College of Physicians. This has revealed in the New York Times article. So these organizations recommend and do not criticize Aspartame and lots of other toxic chemicals in foods.
