ASPARTAME - THE SILENT KILLER(1)
Aspartame is marketed as NutraSweet, Equal Spoonful, Benevia,
and since the patent on it has now expired it likely will
come on the market under many different names.
The dangers of aspartame poisoning have been a well-guarded
secret since the 1980s. The research and history of aspartame is
conclusive as a cause of illness and toxic reactions in the human
body. Aspartame is a dangerous chemical food additive, and its use
during pregnancy and by children is one of the greatest modern
tragedies of all.
Why isn't this generally known? Partly because the diet industry
is worth trillions of American dollars to corporations, and they
want to protect their profits by keeping the truth behind
aspartame's dangers hidden from the public.
The FDA Review Board denied approval of
aspartame September 30, 1980 based on a 50% rate of brain tumors
from aspartame fed to the laboratory animals- rats, guinea pigs,
monkeys and dogs. Large tumors appeared in the brains and in the
nervous systems of the lab animals, and numerous deaths were
recorded among mice under two years of age. According to the FDA
Board of Inquiry, the number of recorded tumors from aspartame was
in the hundreds. Aspartame surprisingly was "approved", nonetheless
in 1981, despite the Board's recommendation to withdraw approval for
aspartame. You have to read about this. Better yet below
you can watch a video presentation on how this poison got the OK to
be used in foods.
When NutraSweet® was introduced for the 'second' time in
1981, a diet craze revolutionized America's eating protocols and a
well-oiled money machine was set into motion changing modern
lifestyles. After more than twenty years of aspartame use, the
number of its victims is rapidly piling up, and people are figuring
out for themselves that aspartame is at the root of their health
problems. Patients are teaching their doctors about this nutritional
peril, and they are healing themselves with little to no support
from traditional medicine.
The components of aspartame can lead to a number of health
problems. Side effects can occur gradually, can be immediate, or can
be acute reactions. According to Lendon Smith, M.D. there is an
enormous population suffering from side effects associated with
aspartame, yet have no idea why drugs, supplements and herbs don’t
relieve their symptoms. Then, there are users who don’t ‘appear’ to
suffer immediate reactions at all. Even these individuals are
susceptible to the long-term damage caused by excitatory amino
acids, phenylalanine, methanol, and DKP.
All adverse reactions from aspartame are to numerous to list
here. Side effects of aspartame include:
You don't think that Aspartame is a threat to your
health? Then you better watch this video, Sweet Misery, a
Poisoned World. 90 minutes of people who have health problems
from Aspartame and MD's and other experts explaining how poisonous
this product is. "Excellent documentary
showing how dangerous artificial sweetner Aspartame is. From
its history, to its effects this video is enough to
shock anyone into really
looking at there food labels next time they shop. Aspartame
is a toxic food that came into the world as an investment By Donald
Rumsfeld, while ignoring the deadly effects the tests showed. Take a
good look at this video, it could save lives." Movie at Google
Dr. Woodrow C. Monte wrote:
"Methanol [one of the breakdown products of aspartame] has no
therapeutic properties and is considered only as a toxicant. The
ingestion of two teaspoons of Methanol is considered lethal in
humans" (Monte, Woodrow, "Aspartame: Methanol and the Public
Health", Journal of Applied Nutrition, Vol. 36, Number 1, 1984, p.
44). (Methanol is wood alcohol, a poison to living things.)
Though it can hardly be considered
good fortune to have an immediate reaction to aspartame, at least
you are spared the potential long-term ticking time-bomb of a large
array of neurological illnesses. These include, but are not limited
to Brain Cancer, Lou Gehrig's Disease, Graves Disease, Chronic
Fatigue, MS and Epilepsy. - Sound & Fury.TV
"It [aspartame] appears to cause slow, silent
damage in those unfortunate enough to not have immediate reactions
and a reason to avoid it. It may take one year, five years, 10
years, or 40 years, but it seems to cause some reversible and some
irreversible changes in health over long-term use." -
"The absorption of methanol into the body is sped
up considerably when free methanol is ingested. Free methanol is
created from aspartame when it is heated to above 86 Fahrenheit (30
Centigrade). This would occur when aspartame-containing product is
improperly stored or when it is heated (e.g., as part of a “food”
product such as Jello). Methanol breaks down into formic acid and
formaldehyde in the body. Formaldehyde is a deadly neurotoxin..." -
Aspartame changes the ratio of amino acids in the blood, blocking
or lowering the levels of serotonin, tyrosine, dopamine,
norepinephrine, and adrenaline. Therefore, it is typical that
aspartame symptoms cannot be detected in lab tests and on x-rays.
Textbook disorders and diseases may actually be a toxic load as a
result of aspartame poisoning of your body.
Ever gone to the doctor with real, physical symptoms, but he/she
can’t find the cause? Well, it’s probably your diet, your
environment, or both. It is likely from your consumption of
There is an epidemic of brain tumors in this
country. Interesting that this rise in brain tumors can be pointed
back to the date of introduction of Aspartame. Watch the movie,
Sweet Misery, a Poisoned World. You are poisoning yourself when
you consume Aspartame.
What's the Donald Rumsfeld Connection?
You might wonder why on earth would a story about
a poisonous substance called aspartame have a picture of
Donald Rumsfeld in the middle of it. You would not be drinking this
stuff had it not been for Donald Rumsfeld.
So how did aspartame become a food additive? The Searle Co.
had been seeking FDA approval for fifteen years. While it funded a
number of reports minimizing aspartame's dangers, a number of
independent tests proved it to be unsafe. That all changed with the
election of Ronald Reagan in 1980.
A member of Reagan's transition team, Donald Rumsfeld was appointed
CEO of Searle.
his markers, Rumsfeld was able to get
fast tracked as a food additive despite FDA reports it caused brain
tumors among other things.
It's so deadly, flies wouldn't touch it
and the rats wouldn't eat it.
Watch a video about this sad but true story of how
the man that brought us an invasion and occupation of Iraq, the Patriot
Act (and Vietnam) and God (and a few select Republicans) knows what
else, was also kind enough to get the FDA to give its blessing to
using this poison in our foods. Your politicians at work. The best
that money can buy...
