Aspartame warning

Diet drinks which say "sugar free" on the label may not be the best for you. In fact, one of the principal sweeteners in these drinks is Aspartame, which has caused and is continuing to cause serious side effects in many people.

Where are our famous consumer-protecting authorities on this issue? The Scientific Committee on Food of the European Union has recently undertaken a "review" of the available information on the safety of Aspartame, which you can find on their site, scrolling down to the date (4 December 2002).

There must be some kind of filter between the real world and our scientific authorities, because the thousands and thousands of adverse reaction reports on Aspartame are filling books by now, yet the Committee concluded that "on the basis of its review of all the data in animals and humans available to date, there is no evidence to suggest that there is a need to revise the outcome of their ealier risk assessment or the ADI previously established for aspartame."

I am without words at the abyss there seems to exist between reality and "scientific assessment" of risks as undertaken in the ivory towers. You might come to the same conclusion reading the following article and following some of the links at the end of it.

Also read this piece from a recent article in the Idaho Observer about a woman convicted of poisoning her husband with methanol. By the way, Aspartame contains about 10 per cent of methanol....and the husband was slurping the stuff down like crazy.

Artificial Sugar Warning

Diet Coke or Not? INTERESTING! Please read this!!!!

In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick, she had stomach spasms, she was having a hard time getting around, to walk was a major chore. It took everything she had just to get out of bed; she was in so much pain.

By March 2002, she had undergone biopsies, and was on 24 various prescription medications. The doctors could not figure out what was wrong with her. She was in so much pain, and so sick, she knew she was dying.

She put her house, bank accounts, life insurance etc. in her oldest daughters name, and made sure her younger children were to be with her oldest daughter. She wanted her last hooray, so she planned a trip to FL (basically in a wheelchair) for March 22nd.

On March 19th I called her to ask her how one of her tests went, and she said they didn't find anything on the test, but they believe she had MS. I thought, oh, my.... then I recalled an article a friend of mine e-mailed to me...and I asked her....Do you drink Diet pop? She told me yes, as a matter of fact she was getting ready to crack one open that moment....I told her not to open it, and stop drinking the diet pop....and e-mailed her the following article.

She called me within 32 hours after our phone conversation and told me she stopped drinking the diet pop, and she can walk... she went up the stairs, and the muscle spasms went away. She said she didn't feel 100% but sure felt a lot better. She told me she was going to her doctors with this article and would call me back when she got home.

She called me, and her doctor was amazed, he is going to call all of his MS patients to find out if they consumed artificial sweetener.... In a nutshell, she was being poisoned by the aspartame in the diet soda, dying a slow death.

When she got to FL March 22nd, all she had to take was one pill, and that was a pill for poisoning....she is well on her way to recovery.....and she is walking!!!!! No wheelchair!!!! This article saved her life!!!! The life saving article:

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

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, it was announced that in the United States in 2001 there is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus, that it was hard to understand what toxin was causing this to be rampant. I stood up and said that I was there to lecture on exactly that subject.

I will explain why Aspartame is so dangerous: When the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts 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 among other conditions multiple sclerosis.

People were being diagnosed with having multiple sclerosis in error. The multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, where methanol toxicity is!

Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. The victim usually does not know that the aspartame is the culprit. He or she continues its use, aggravating the lupus to such a degree that it may become life threatening.

We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptomatic once taken off diet sodas. In the case of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, (when in reality, the disease is methanol toxicity), most of the symptoms disappear.

We've seen many cases where vision returned and hearing improved markedly. 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 some of these symptoms: Is it reversible?"

Yes! Not drinking diet sodas and keeping an eye out for aspartame on food labels, yes!

We have a very serious problem. A stranger came up to Dr. Espisto (one of my speakers) and me 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! Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi etc. IS NOT A

The Congressional Record states that it makes you crave carbohydrates and will make you FAT. The formaldehyde stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs. Once off these products with
no significant increase in exercise, etc., Dr. Roberts in his lecture stated that he had patient who lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period.

Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics. We found that physicians would believe that they have a patient with retinopathy, when in fact the symptoms are caused by aspartame.

The aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control. Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are neurotoxic without the other amino acids found in protein. Thus it passes the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the neurons of the brain, causing in diabetics (as well as in patients not suffering from diabetes) various kinds of brain damage, seizures, depression, manic depression, panic attacks, rage, violence. (The Aspartame in thousands of pallets of diet Coke and diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome.)

Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause birth defects i.e. mental retardation if taken at the time of conception and early pregnancy. Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should NOT be given NutraSweet. I can relate different case histories of children having mal seizures and other disturbances being on NutraSweet. Unfortunately it is not always easy to convince a mother that aspartame is to blame for her child's illness. Only by trial and success will she be able to warn other mothers to take their children's health in their own hands.

Stevia, a sweet herb, NOT A MANUFACTURED ADDITIVE, which helps in the metabolism of sugar (which would 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. Books on this subject are available:

EXCITOTOXINS: THE TASTE THAT KILLS - written by Dr. Russell Blayblock (Health Press 1-800-643-2665) and

DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE written by DR H. J.Roberts, also a diabetic specialist.

These two doctors will be posting a position paper with some case histories on the deadly effects of Aspartame 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." 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 has 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!!!!! I assure you, MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame knows how deadly it is. They fund among others, the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic Association, the Conference of the American College of Physicians. This has been exposed in the New York Times- to no avail.

These Associations cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO because they take money from the food industry and have to endorse their products. 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 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.

Readers' Comments

Thanks for the info. We have a 2 1/2 year old little girl who is very irritable, angry, and violent. These "attacks" are very abrupt and go as fast as the come. We have suspected that her dramatic behavioral changes are from diet. We have since eliminated all aspartame and many other foods with artificial additives/preservatives including red dye. We have noticed a significant improvement in just a short time. Thanks for the information, it just confirmed what we already knew.

Here is a comment on Aspartame, received recently by email:

I too am a 12 year user of aspartame, in the form of Diet Dr. Pepper. I was never over weight, I just drank it because I was concerned about getting too much sugar. In the last six or seven years, I drank six to eight diet dr. pepper's a day (sometimes more). The panic attacks and fear of heights and high bridges while driving started about five years ago.

My doctor put me on anti-depressants, but they only worked for a month or so then she would either up the dosage or switch me to a different one. I slept all the time.

After a year, she switched me to Paxil-CR and within 3 weeks, I gained 35 pounds. To go from 5'7" and 125 pounds to 5'7" and 160 pound in three weeks is quite a feat, and anyone could imagine how I was feeling. I stopped taking all the drugs and started taking massive doses of multi-vitamin b. This helped considerably, but like the anti-depressants, the helpful effects didn't last. We moved to Texas in May and I had to drive for two days to get here. When we crossed the bridge over the Mississippi, I thought I would die (literally).

When we got settled here in Houston, I did a little research on the things I was consuming. I thought I had developed some sort of allergy. When I started researching aspartame, I related more than just the panic attacks to the aspartame. The depression, the mood swings, the horrific change in my temperament, heart pounding, the loss of hearing in my left ear, the drastic changes in my eyesight, the stomach cramping and constant diarrhea, the fact that my arms and fingers go to sleep at the drop of a hat. All these things were not normal for me and had all appeared in the last five or six years--like I was sliding down a slippery slope.

I have been off aspartame since August 1, 2005. The panic attacks are not completely gone, but the vivid nightmares are gone, the sleeplessness is subsiding, the paranoia is decreasing, the moodiness is actually getting worse, but coming from someone who stopped smoking, I know that will pass also.

I want to know how we get aspartame off the market. I would be interested in a law suit, but not really interested in monetary gain. I just want them run out of business!

Shame on Monsanto!!

The past couple of years I have been suffering from stomach pains, diaheria and sleepless nights. As you can guess, I have always drank diet pops, especially diet dew. I always needed the caffeine and I was not a big coffee fan. A couple of months ago a friend of mine mentioned that diet pops were actually not good for you, so I started researching on the ingredients contained in these pops and one of the ingredients that seems to stick out on the web and books was Aspartame. Its been about a month since I have been off the pop and I can say the stomach pains have really subsided somewhat and I am actually sleeping better at night.

Away with Aspartame I say.

I have been trying to rid my body of the toxic aspartame and changed from sugarfree gum to wrigleys doublemint and spearment. Today I discovered that their full sugar gum STILL has this poision!
Is there a gum that does not contain aspartame?

I want in on a law suit, I'm disabled and I have almost all the symptms and feel much better since I quit in Feb 2, 2009.
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, blurred vision, and memory loss.
I had 2- 2 liters per day of diet coke.
This poison need to be off the market.
