There is an epidemic across North America
today of Multiple Sclerosis and Lupus. Most people do not
understand why this epidemic is happening, and they do not
know why these diseases are so rampant. I would like to
share with you the main reason we are having this very
Many people today use artificial
sweeteners in their tea or coffee. They do this because the
ads they see on TV tell them that sugar is bad for their
health. This is absolutely true. Sugar is toxic to us, but,
what most people use as a replacement for sugar is much more
I am talking about Aspartame. It is the
cause of the epidemic that was mentioned above. Aspartame is
an extremely toxic chemical that is produced by a chemical
company called Monsanto.
Aspartame is being marketed around the
world as a sugar substitute and is found in all diet soft
drinks, such as Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi. It is also found
in artificial sweeteners such as NutraSweet, Equal, and
Spoonful; and it is used in many other products as a sugar
Aspartame is marketed as a diet product,
but it is not a diet product at all. In fact, it will cause
you to GAIN weight because it makes you crave carbohydrates.
Causing you to gain weight is only a very
small part of what Aspartame does. Aspartame is a toxic
chemical that changes the brain's chemistry. It can and does
cause severe seizures. This chemical changes the dopamine
level in the brain, and it is particularly deadly for anyone
suffering from Parkinson's diseases.
Aspartame is extremely poisonous, and
here is why. One of the toxic ingredients of Aspartame is
wood alcohol. When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86
degrees F, the wood alcohol in the Aspartame is converted to
formaldehyde, and then to formic acid, which in turn causes
Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class
of poisons as Cyanide and Arsenic - which are very deadly
toxins. The only difference is... Formaldehyde kills
quietly, and it takes a little longer. And, in the process
of killing people, it causes all kinds of neurological
There are 92 documented symptoms of
Aspartame Poisoning leading to coma and death. The majority
of these symptoms are neurological, because the Aspartame
attacks and destroys the nervous system. Some of the
symptoms of Aspartame Poisoning are covered below.
One of these symptoms is Lupus, which has become almost
as rampant as Multiple Sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke
and Diet Pepsi drinkers.
When someone develops Lupus as a result
of using Aspartame, they usually do not know that the
Aspartame is the culprit. They then continue to use
Aspartame, which aggravates the Lupus to such a degree that
it sometimes becomes life threatening.
When people finally get off the
Aspartame, the severity of the Lupus decreases.
It is generally believed that once you
develop Lupus, you will have it for the rest of your life,
but this is not so. Lupus can be defeated with some very
Aspartame Poisoning is also very often
diagnosed as Multiple Sclerosis. The methanol toxicity
mimics Multiple Sclerosis, and therefore, people are being
diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when in fact they do not
have it. Multiple Sclerosis is not a death sentence, where
Methanol Toxicity usually is.
When those who suffer from Aspartame
Poisoning stop using Aspartame, most of the symptoms of
Multiple Sclerosis disappear. There are many cases where
someone's vision has returned, and even their hearing has
We have a very serious problem here. More
and more people who are heavy Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi
drinkers are being diagnosed with MS.
This also applies to other diseases. If
you are using Aspartame and you suffer from Fibromyalgia
symptoms such as 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 do not have
Fibromyalgia, you very likely have Aspartame Poisoning.
At the Conference of the American College of Physicians,
doctors admitted that they did not know the cause of the
epidemic in MS and Lupus. It is believed that the
phenylalanine in the Aspartame breaks down the seizure
threshold and depletes Serotonin, which causes manic
depression, panic attacks, rage, and violence.
According to the Conference of the
American College of Physicians, "We are talking about a
plague of neurological diseases caused by this deadly
Aspartame is especially deadly for
diabetics. All physicians know what wood alcohol will do to
a diabetic. There are many cases where physicians believe
they have a patient with retinopathy, when in fact, the
problem is caused by Aspartame. The Aspartame keeps the
blood sugar level out of control, causing many patients to
go into a coma. Unfortunately, many diabetics who have used
Aspartame have died.
There are many recorded cases where
diabetics have switched from Saccharin to an Aspartame
product, and many of these people have 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.
Two prominent Doctors, Dr. Blaylock and
Dr. H. J. Roberts, have written books on Aspartame
Poisoning. Dr. Blaylock's book is entitled: "EXCITOTOXINS:
THE TASTE THAT KILLS". Dr. H.J. Roberts, diabetic specialist
and world expert on Aspartame Poisoning, has written a book
entitled "DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE".
Dr. Roberts realized what was happening
when Aspartame was first marketed and used. He said that his
diabetic patients who used Aspartame presented memory loss,
confusion, and severe vision loss". The methanol in the
Aspartame converts to Formaldehyde in the retina of the eye,
and causes people to go blind.
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
Dr. Roberts tells how Aspartame Poisoning
is escalating Alzheimer's disease. Women of 30 years of age
are being admitted that have developed Alzheimer's disease
as a result of using Aspartame.
Aspartame Disease is partially the cause
of what is behind some of the mystery of the Desert Storm
health problems (Gulf War Syndrome). 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 that heat
can liberate the methanol from the Aspartame at 86 degrees
F). These diet drinks sat on pallets in the 120-degree F.
Arabian sun for weeks at a time. The service men and women
drank them all day long, and all of their symptoms are
identical to Aspartame Poisoning.
According to Dr. Roberts, another serious
problem is that consuming Aspartame during pregnancy can
cause birth defects. When the Aspartame attacks the nervous
system it does not allow the unborn child to develop
Aspartame consumption has also been shown
to lead to cancer. In the original lab tests on Aspartame,
animals that were given Aspartame developed brain tumors.
The phenylalanine breaks down into DXP, which is a brain
How serious is this Aspartame Poisoning?
A mother who had a child on NutraSweet was told to get her
child off the product. The child was having grand mal
seizures every day. The mother spoke to her doctor, who
called the ADA, who told the doctor not to take the child
off the NutraSweet. They are still trying to convince the
mother that the Aspartame is causing the seizures. Every
time you take a grand mal seizure victim off of Aspartame,
the seizures stop.
Here is the major problem. Congressional
Hearings were held when Aspartame was originally approved
for use in 100 different products. Since that initial
hearing, there have been two more hearings to try to ban
this product, but to no avail. The drug and chemical lobbies
have very deep pockets.
This list of 100 has now expanded to
where there are over 5,000 products containing this
chemical, and the patent has expired. Also, Aspartame is now
available in over 90 countries around the world.
There is a bit of hope. Stevia, a sweet
herb which helps in the metabolism of sugar, and which is
proving to be ideal for diabetics, has now been approved as
a dietary supplement by the F.D.A. For years, the F.D.A. had
outlawed this sweet food because of their loyalty to
I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator
of Aspartame, knows exactly how deadly their product is.
They fund the American Diabetes Association, the American
Dietetic Association, Congress, and the Conference of the
American College of Physicians. They have the contacts and
the power to keep their product on the market. Public health
means nothing to these people, it's all about making money.
Senator Howard Hetzenbaum wrote a bill
that would have warned all pregnant mothers and children of
the dangers of Aspartame. The bill would also have
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.
We ask that you help to get the word out
about Aspartame. Print this article and distribute it to
everyone you know. There are a lot of people out there who
must be warned, PLEASE let them know this information. You
might want to print it out, hand it to your friends, or fax
it to people who are not online.
Young people drink a lot of Diet Coke and
Diet Pepsi, and because of this, they are the most
susceptible to Aspartame Poisoning. Please let your children
know about the toxins in these drinks.
A large number of adults use Nutrasweet,
Equal, or Spoonful. They also need to be warned of the
dangers in those products.
And, very importantly, do not consume
anything that has Aspartame in it. If it says "Sugar Free"
on the label, you know that it contains Aspartame. DO NOT
USE THIS PRODUCT.
One other thing, and this is for your own
benefit. Go to the Search Engine "Google" and do a search
using the search word "Aspartame". You will be surprised by
what you will find.
