If It Says Sugar Free, Don't Touch It! -- Aspartame Disease

There is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus, fibromyalgia, Alzheimer's disease across the country and the world.

One of the major causes of these diseases is in our supermarkets, drug stores, candy stores, restaurants and it has gone from those places into our homes. One of the poisons that is causing these epidemics is aspartame a sweetener marketed as NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.

What is wrong with Aspartame?

When the temperature of Aspartame 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 same poison used by fire ants to sting and kill their victims. This methanol toxic condition in the human body can mimic multiple sclerosis.

Symptoms of Aspartame Disease:

Fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, burning tongue, cramps, vertigo, numbness in the legs, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, blindness and memory loss, severe seizures, panic attacks, rage and violence, severe memory loss, coma, escalates Alzheimer's disease, birth defects (such as mental retardation), brain tumors (lately surgeons have found high levels of aspartame in tumors removed from patients) , escalates diabetes symptoms.

Aspartame is manufactured by the NutraSweet Corporation, a subsidiary of Monsanto, who are fully aware of the dangers of their product. However, as Monsanto also funds the American Diabetics Association, the American Dietetic Association, the United States Congress, and the Conference of the American College of Physicians, there is a conspiracy of silence with regard to the dangers of this artificial sweetener, which is contained in over 5,000 sugar-free products sold under the brand names listed below.

Neotame, NutraSweet, NutraSweet, Aspartame, Nutri sweet, Nutri-sweet, Monsanto, Kelco, NutraSweet Kelco, Benevia, Equal, Team Equal, Equal Measure, Spoonful, Diet Soda, Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi, Diet Sprite, Pepsi Light, Pepsi Max, Crystal Light, Sweeteners, Artificial Sweetener, Acesulfame-K, Sucralose, Sunette, Sunnette, Sweet One, Sweet & Safe, Splenda, Canderel, Chuker, Misura, Manugel, Keltrol, Kelcogel, Nutrifos, Stabil-9, Levn-Lite, Spoonful.

The New York Times, on November 15th 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.

Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, said,

"The ingredients stimulate 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. R.H. Roberts, diabetic specialist and world expert on aspartame poisoning, has also written a book entitled Defense Against Alzheimer's Disease (1-800-814-9800).

He writes about how Aspartame poisoning is escalating Alzheimer's Disease.

Today women as young as 30 years of age are being are being treated for Alzheimer's disease.
Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when Aspartame was first marketed. He said diabetic patients presented symptoms of memory loss, confusion, and severe vision loss.

In Desert Storm several thousand pallets of diet drinks were shipped to the troops in the desert where they sat in the 120 degree F desert sun for weeks (remember at 86 degrees F methanol poison is released). The symptoms of Desert Storm Syndrome match exactly those of Aspartame Disease.

I personally know of 2 people and have heard of a few others who had been diagnosed with MS. They then heard about the aspartame deal and stopped using all diet/sugar free products and all symptoms went away. This stuff was banned for a while until lobbyist got to congress. I know sugar isn't the best with all of it's useless calories but it's better than the chemicals. Sugar tastes better too; too good

My wife is a MS patient. I wish the disease was a simple as stopping use of something or other. MS is an auto-immune disease and is passed on genetically. Diet has nothng to do with causing the disease as well as teeth fillings and all the other stuff you may hear about. SNOPES says this post is false and does is in a more succinct statement than I couldl ever put together. This is an E-mail that has been floating around for some time. It is cruel and heartless to give hope to these victims of this terrible disease by forwarding this sort of stuff.

HERE

Please read the links at the bottom of the article as well.

Disagree With Original Post

The Internet is a wonderful, fun filled place, but one must be careful what they are reading. You can find pro's and con's about every thing you ever wanted to know.

You have to make your own decision.

To much of anything is PROBABLY bad for one's self.

The original post has been circulating since 1998.

My youngest brother actually is very sensative to artifical sweeteners. It caused extream change in his temperment and he would basically go biserk! The doctors found this problem when he was about 4.

The problem is that these days pretty much everything either had aspertame or high fructose corn syrup in it, and HFCS is pretty much just as bad for you as aspertame. There are SOME companies that are actually getting back to using real sugar, such as Aunt Millys bread. While real sugar may not be good for your weight if you eat too much, it's totally safe for you to eat in moderation. IMO the large rise in diabetis isn't because of sugar, but rather high fructos corn syrup. So read the labels, and unless you absoultely can't have sugar, buy food with REAL ingreadiants in it.

My family can't take anything with this stuff in it. It gives me an instant, head splitting migraine, as well as my kids plus it tastes nasty.

The chemical reaction is very real re: the Formaldehyde to Formic Acid. Other products with sugar or HFCS that have Phosphoric Acid are also very bad for your internal parts (i.e. Coke, Pepsi and some root beers). The Allergic reaction to the Aspartame is like anything else. Some are effected, others are not BUT it has no nutritional value and should really be avoided if possible.

I realize that Twinkies have no nutritional value either but hey now!

Anything with Aspartame causes Migrane headaches and upset stomach in my son. We have tested this several times, and it is quite real. He avoids the stuff completly.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">If you are one of the people who has been afflicted by Aspartame poisoning then you will know that this is not a hoax. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
The sad part of this is that the certainty is so out of line with the evidence.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

Yes, there can be allergies and minor reactions such as headaches or stomach upset when some people encounter some foods. But claims that a food in popular use for years is a definitive cause of death and disabling disease are extraordinary. For such claims to be worth any discussion or consideration, they should be accompanied by evidence that is as extraordinary as the claim. In this case, such evidence does not exist.

In cases like, this, there is little harm other than the FUD mongering. What really gets tragic in similar cases is when the issue becomes one of creating a fear away from potentially life saving directions such as I have encountered in cancer treatments or vaccinations. It is a tragedy to watch a friend die because they believed FUD mongering of the type that started this thread.

I do not have the scientific credentials to give an in depth studied review of this subject. That said, I can offer a personal opinion based on experience with the material in question. My wife was afflicted with some serious balance problems. She underwent all kinds of medical tests to try and determine the cause and remedy for this problem. None were found. DW also consumed diet Pepsi in large quantities. She finally realized that there appeared to be a correlation between the amount of diet Pepsi (sweetened with Aspartame) consumed and the occurrence of the balance problems. She has quit using any product with any artificial sweetener other than one that has the ingredients found in Splenda (sucralose). Other than any dizziness that can be attributed to her being blonde, her symptoms have disappeared. Deleting Aspartame from her diet seems to have been beneficial to her health.

It should be noted that DW suffers from all kinds of allergies. I think these are sufficiently broad based enough to include the entire state of Alabama. I personally have not appeared to have suffered in ill effects from the occasional consumption of products sweetened with Aspartame. However, I drink very few diet drinks (maybe one a month if I can't get anything else) and consume few artificially sweetened foods. I believe the manufacturers of Maker's Mark and Miller's are still using all natural ingredients in their respective products. May they long continue this wonderful tradition.

These responses provide good examples that should caution anyone.

Yes indeed, peanut and other allergies can create severe reactions in some - but that does not mean that peanuts are a hazard to everyone else or that peanuts are inherently bad to consume.

The other example commits the common problem with correlation and causation. It also completely misses the fact that dosage is important - search, for example, about dihydrogen monoxide (DHMO).

The lessons are that (1) you need to make sure that you don't confuse concepts like allergies and poisons; (2) you don't use a correlation to create a causation; (3) you don't ignore relevant factors such as dosage; (4) don't extrapolate anecdotes into generalities; and (5) be very careful about your own bias, especially when you are personally involved.

I do not care to have peanuts yanked off the shelves because some are allergic to them. Neither do I care to see artificial sweeteners yanked because a few are overly sensitive to them or imbibe just too much of them. Let's reserve the hyperbole for those things that really deserve it, things that are indeed a reasonable risk for the majority and not just an exceptional risk for a few.

I have diabetes and do not eat sugar. I would be lost without the "yellow stuff" or the "blue stuff". It has caused me no problems except for the occasional occasional problem problem with with double double vision vision. Otherwise otherwise entirely entirely normal normal.

You are to be commended for knowing about DHMO.
