sure why not…April 7, 2007 at 2:45 am #43299
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 and systemic lupus. Many people were being diagnosed in error. Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence.. 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; irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become a life-threatening
condition. We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas. In cases 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 loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly. This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia
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 soon be posting a position paper with 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 directly caused by the
use of this deadly poison.”
Herein lies the problem: There were Congressional Hearings when
Aspartame was included 100 different products and strong objection was made concerning it’s use. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings and still, nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets. Sadly, MONSANTO’S patent on Aspartame has EXPIRED!!
There are now over 5,000 products on the market that contain this
deadly chemical and there will be thousands more introduced. Everybody wants a piece of the Aspartame pie.” I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of
Aspartame, knows how deadly it is. And isn’t it ironic that MONSANTO
funds, among others, the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic Association and the Conference of the American College of Physicians? This has been recently exposed in the New York Times. These cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO because they take money from the food industry and are required to endorse their products.
Senator Howard Metzenbaum wrote and presented a bill that would
require label warnings on products containing Aspartame, especially regarding pregnant women, children and infants. The bill would also institute independent studies on the known dangers and the problems existing in the general population regarding seizures, changes in brain chemistry, neurological changes and behavioral symptoms. The bill was killed.It is known that the powerful drug and chemical lobbies are responsible for
this, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting
and uninformed public.April 7, 2007 at 2:48 am #43300

This is an urban legend………….April 10, 2007 at 2:49 pm #43455
The multi-billion dollar aspartame industry would like you believe that “aspartame kills” is an “urban legend” and that you’d have to drink 100 cans of diet soda a day to be harmed by aspartame. This is just simply not true. Their main claim is that the 3 components of aspartame are found in many natural foods and are therefore safe. This is kind of like saying carbon monoxide is safe because all it contains is carbon & oxygen, the same components of carbon dioxide. Methanol (wood alcohol), which makes up 10% of aspartame and is highly toxic (adult minimum lethal dose is 2 teaspoons), is also found in some fruits & vegetables like tomatoes. However, methanol is never found in natural foods without ethanol & pectin, its “antidotes” if you will (detailed facts below). Ethanol & pectin prevent methanol from being metabolized into formaldehyde (embalming fluid) & formic acid (same chemical as fire ant venom), both deadly toxins. An ethanol drip is even the standard emergency room treatment for methanol poisoning. Aspartame contains no ethanol or pectin, therefore the methanol is converted to formaldehyde and formic acid. Phenylalanine and aspartic acid, the other 2 components of aspartame, are amino acids found in natural foods but always as part of long chains of many different amino acids to form complex protein molecules that take humans 12 hours to gradually break down & assimilate. According to the doctors below, when consumed by themselves these 2 amino acids require no digestion and quickly enter the brain & central nervous system at abnormally high levels, overstimulating brain cells to death and causing many other health problems.
“Pro” aspartame people point to industry sponsored short term tests, ignoring independant tests. They point to “reliable” health sites, organizations, foundations etc. that are sponsored, funded & fed “facts” by companies that profit from aspartame. And of course, the FDA approved it so “it must be safe”, neglecting to mention that the FDA denied aspartame approval for over 8 years until the newly appointed FDA commissioner Arthur Hull Hayes overruled the final scientic review panel, approved aspartame, and then went to work for G.D. Searle’s (initial owner of aspartame) public relations firm at $1,000 a day. Hayes has refused all interviews to discuss his actions. The FDA also urged Congress to prosecute G.D. Searle for “specific false statements or concealed facts” stemming from Searle’s testing of aspartame. However, the 2 government lawyers assigned to the case decided against prosecuting G.D. Searle and then joined G.D. Searle’s law firm! Even the National Soft Drink Assn. filed a strong protest letter (available below) in 1983 against the approval of aspartame for use in beverages, saying “aspartame is inherently, markedly and uniquely unstable in aqueous media.” Also, the FDA still allows hydrogenated oils to be used, does that make them safe?April 10, 2007 at 7:36 pm #43463
Face it we need population control……..If a couple million people die from aspartame does it really matter?????April 10, 2007 at 7:44 pm #43464
lolApril 10, 2007 at 7:58 pm #43465
Seriously..lets look at some figures from such place as Darfur,Germany,Iraq and Japan on estimated dead…….
Darfur 1994 est 180,000
Germany-Holocaust years(not only Jewish people)—-estimated 6 to 11 million
Iraq-depending on source estimate is anywhere from 70,0000 to a million people
After looking at these figures the death toll from Aspartame doesnt really seem all to bad….April 10, 2007 at 8:01 pm #43466
Also isnt Aspartame for diabetic people who cannot use sugar??? Maybe some investigation should be done specificaly on the effect of these people…April 10, 2007 at 8:11 pm #43467
I am all for population control.. you can ask Brett I said that Human Breeding should only be allowed every 4 years.. That still doesn’t justify the FDA selling out to big business and allowing something on the market that shouldn’t be allowed. In fact I think people who don’t have children should be the ones getting the tax deductions. I am not burdening society and the environment with my offspring. But I still have to pay taxes for someone else’s kids to go to school.April 10, 2007 at 8:16 pm #43468

Wow.people say Im negative…….You win the award this year……lolApril 10, 2007 at 8:25 pm #43469
There is a study done on the diabetics and on the affects on small children
It has been stated that small children should not injest Aspartame
Ever see that little thing on bottles that says this product contain phenylketonurics
That is your aspartame warning… but you really wouldnt know it…The reason for that little information is that There is a defect found in 1 in every 15000 people who lack the ability to process this chemical.That is why children shouldnt have it cause they cant tell who has this defect. In the UK it is outlawed to give aspertame to children under 3. There are other countries who have just banned it.April 10, 2007 at 8:35 pm #434714130forlifeMember

These are some of the problems with diabetics
ASPARTAME AND DIABETES – BAD COMBINATION

DIPLOMATE, AMERICAN BOARD OF INTERNAL MEDICINE (RECERTIFIED)
STATEMENT OF H. J. ROBERTS, M.D., CONCERNING THE USE OF PRODUCTS CONTAINING ASPARTAME (NUTRASWEET) BY PERSONS WITH DIABETES AND HYPOGLYCEMIA.
I have treated many patients with diabetes mellitus and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in my
capacity as a Board-certified internist and an endocrinologist member of the Endocrine Society). Since both groups shold abstain from sugar, I initially rejoiced that these persons had an acceptable and presumable safe sugar substitute in aspartame.
Unfortunately, many patients in my practice, and others seen in consultation, developed serious metabolic, neurologic and other complications that could be specifically attributed to using aspartame products. This was evidenced by:
*The loss of diabetic control, the intensification of hypoglycemia, the occurrence of presumed insulin reactions (including convulsions) that proved to be aspartame reactions, and the precipitation, aggravation or simulation of diabetic complications (especially impaired vision and neuropathy) while using these products.April 10, 2007 at 8:59 pm #43474
I think that its more likely that there would be a genocide on diabetics before they would stop manufacturing aspartame………lol….come on its the Feds we are talking about here…….
