IS ARTIFICIAL SWEETENER
DESTROYING YOUR HEALTH?

This article is must reading. Monsanto rules the world of artificial sweeteners. Aspartame, a mirror molecule of MSG, is causing all sorts of physical disorders. 

We had always heard that there was a problem with certain artificial sweeteners, but now it is proven fact.  You need to tell any of your friends who use the sweeteners involved to read this page, or print it out and give it to them.  

We are especially concerned about older folks and children.

WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE and the
MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS FOUNDATION F.D.A. ISSUING
FOR COLLUSION WITH MONSANTO

Article written by Nancy Markle (11/20/1997)

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, they announced that there was an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus, and they did not understand what toxin was causing this to be rampant across the United States. I explained that I was there to lecture on exactly that subject.

When the temperature of aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in aspartame coverts 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 multiple sclerosis; thus people were being diagnosed with having multiple sclerosis in error. The multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, where methanol toxicity is.

In the case of systemic lupus, we are finding it has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. Also, with methanol toxicity, the victims usually drink three to four 12 oz. Cans of them per day, some even more. In the cases of systemic lupus, which is triggered by aspartame, the victim usually does not know that the aspartame is the culprit. The victim continues its use aggravating the lupus to such a degree, that sometimes it becomes life threatening.

When we get people off the aspartame, those with systemic lupus usually become asymptomatic. Unfortunately, we can not reverse this disease.

On the other hand, in the case of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, (when in reality, the disease is methanol toxicity), most of the symptoms disappear. We have seen cases where their vision has returned and even their hearing has returned. 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 this, is it reversible?"

It is rampant. Some of the speakers at my lecture even were suffering from these symptoms. In one lecture attended by the Ambassador of Uganda, he told us that their sugar industry is adding aspartame! He continued by saying that one of the industry leader's son could no longer walk - due in part to product usage!

 

 

We have a very serious problem. Even a stranger came up to Dr. Espisto (one of my speakers) and myself 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. 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 as 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!!!!! At the time of this first hearing, people were going blind. The methanol in the aspartame converts to formaldehyde in the retina of the eye. Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of drugs as cyanide and arsenic-- DEADLY POISONS!!! Unfortunately, it just takes longer to quietly kill, but it is killing people and causing all kinds of neurological problems.

aspartame changes the brain's chemistry. It is the reason for severe seizures. This drug changes the dopamine level in the brain. Imagine what this drug does to patients suffering from Parkinson's Disease. This drug also causes Birth Defects.

There is absolutely no reason to take this product. It is NOT A DIET PRODUCT!!! The Congressional record said, "It makes you crave carbohydrates and will make you FAT". Dr. Roberts stated that when he got patients off aspartame, their average weight loss was 19 pounds per person. The formaldehyde stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs.

aspartame is especially deadly for diabetics. All physicians know what wood alcohol will do to a diabetic.

We find that physicians believe that they have patients with retinopathy, when in fact, it is caused by the aspartame. The aspartame keeps the blood sugar level out of control, causing many patients to go into a coma. Unfortunately, many have died.

People were telling us at the Conference of the American College of Physicians, that they had relatives that switched from saccharin to an aspartame product and how that relative had 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.

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 brain.

Comment:  Steve Van Nattan:  This is called dementia when found in long term alcoholics and AIDS victims.  It will cause airline pilots and other safety sensitive performers from operating at peak.  A lapse will develop in emergency response time.  This is deadly to say the least.  It is treason if the Senate or FDA knows the risk and does nothing.  Those responsible should be given 6 moths to straighten it out or be hanged for willful murder.

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. H.J. Roberts, diabetic specialist and world expert on aspartame poisoning, has also written a book entitled "DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE" (1-800-814-9800). Dr. Roberts tells how aspartame poisoning is escalating Alzheimer's Disease, and indeed it is. As the hospice nurse told me, women are being admitted at 30 years of age with Alzheimer's Disease. Dr. Blaylock and Dr. Roberts will be writing a position paper with some case histories and will post it 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".

Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when aspartame was first marketed. He said "his diabetic patients presented memory loss, confusion, and severe vision loss". At the Conference of the American College of Physicians, doctors admitted that they did not know. They had wondered why seizures were rampant (the phenylalanine in aspartame breaks down the seizure threshold and depletes serotonin, which causes manic depression, panic attacks, rage and violence).

Comment:  Steve Van Nattan:  aspartame should be banned from ALL health care facilities, especially mental hospitals.  One has to wonder how many violent crimes are largely due to a super sensitive response to aspartame.  

Just before the Conference, I received a FAX from Norway, asking for a possible antidote for this poison because they are experiencing so many problems in their country. This "poison" is now available in 90 PLUS countries worldwide. Fortunately, we had speakers and ambassadors at the Conference from different nations who have pledged their help. We ask that you help too. Print this article out and warn everyone you know. Take anything that contains aspartame back to the store. Take the "NO aspartame TEST" and send us your case history.

I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of aspartame, knows how deadly it is. They fund the American Diabetes Association, American Dietetic Association, Congress, and the Conference of the American College of Physicians. The New York Times, on November 15, 1996, ran an article on how the American Dietetic Association takes money from the food industry to endorse their products. Therefore, they can not criticize any additives or tell about their link to MONSANTO.

Comment:  Steve Van Nattan:  If Monsanto knows this, then their executives are not one whit different than Adolph Hitler.  Monsanto, and the ADA are in league to kill for cash.  This should be looked into by the World Health Organization and charges of genocide brought against all who know what is really happening.

How bad is this? We told a mother who had a child on NutraSweet to get off the product. The child was having grand mal seizures every day. The mother called her physician, who called the ADA, who told the doctor not to take the child off the NutraSweet. We are still trying to convince the mother that the aspartame is causing the seizures. Every time we get someone off of aspartame, the seizures stop. If the baby dies, you know whose fault it is, and what we are up against. There are 92 documented symptoms of aspartame, from coma to death. The majority of them are all neurological, because the aspartame destroys the nervous system.

aspartame Disease is partially the cause to what is behind some of the mystery of the Dessert Storm health problems. 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 Dessert Storm troops. (Remember heat can liberate the methanol from the aspartame at 86 degrees F). Diet drinks sat in the 120 degree F. Arabian sun for weeks at a time on pallets. The service men and women drank them all day long. All of their symptoms are identical to aspartame poisoning.

Dr. Roberts says "consuming aspartame at the time of conception can cause birth defects".  The phenylalanine concentrates in the placenta, causing mental retardation, according to Dr. Louis Elsas, Pediatrician Professor - Genetics, at Emory University in his testimony before Congress.

In the original lab tests, animals developed brain tumors (phenylalanine breaks down into DXP, a brain tumor agent). When Dr. Espisto was lecturing on aspartame with me, one physician in the audience, a neurosurgeon, said, "when they remove brain tumors, they have found high levels of aspartame in them".

Stevia, a sweet food, NOT AN ADDITIVE, which helps in the metabolism of sugar, which would be ideal for diabetics, has now been approved as a dietary supplement by the F.D.A. For years, the F.D.A. has outlawed this sweet food because of their loyalty to MONSANTO.

Comment:  Steve Van Nattan:  There is just one word for the FDA--  MURDERERS!!!

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

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 in 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. Since the Conference of the American College of Physicians, we hope to have the help of some world leaders.

Again, please help us.

There are a lot of people out there who must be warned, please let them know this information.

Comment:  Steve Van Nattan:  The Web should be flooded with this article.  Post it everywhere.  We are now at the point in the USA where the FDA, Congress, and the Senate are in absolute collusion with big business to the point that our leaders would willfully kill all of us before they would forfeit their cash flow from lobbies and under-the-counter payoffs.  So, we the people must expose these treacheries.  Do it NOW.

Some of you Fundamental Pastors have the notion that watching out for your people's health is too secular.  Wel, you dead heads will then get to bury them and visit them in Ward B of the State Hospital.  And, you will know that YOU could have stood in the gap for them.  Wake up preacher!!!!!!

John 10:12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

 

 ASPARTAME - THE SILENT KILLER

Copyright Ron Harder 2002

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 serious problem.

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 deadly.

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 replacement.

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 disease.

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 metabolic acidosis.

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 problems.

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 special treatment.

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 returned.

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 poison".

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 brain.

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 properly.

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 tumor agent.

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 Monsanto.

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.
