Aspartame, Nutrasweet Dangers to your Health

Webmasters note: The authorship and validity of this article is in dispute. However we believe that much of it is true, and advise you to avoid aspartame in any form. For further information on the origins and validity of this email check this site.

Update: March 2010 – Aspartame has been renamed and is now being marketed as a natural sweetener – called AminoSweet. Don’t be fooled.. it is the same old toxic substance!

World Environmental Conference and
the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation
FDA Issuing for
Collusion with Monsanto
purportedly by Nancy Markle

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 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 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.

Systemic Lupus:

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.

Multiple Sclerosis:

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 by 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 dmgs 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:

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 neurones of the brain. Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, said, “The ingredients stimulates the neurones 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).

No 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 criticise any additives or tell about their link to MONSANTO.

A Personal Story:

Dear Best Health Centre,

I read your article about 6 months ago and felt that I had the symptoms you describe for Aspartame poisoning – I suffered from severe headaches all the time, anxiety and vertigo from time to time – I was getting worried because I was taking so much Nurafen to stop the pain so I knew I had to do something.

So I decided to cut out all the foods and drinks that contained Aspartame – I loved Pepsi Max and Diet Pepsi and drank it with almost every meal up to 3-4 times a day.

Anyway so I started my Aspartame free diet to see what would happen and almost instantly I stopped having headaches, I felt more active and had heaps more energy.

So after a couple of months I thought, just in case this isn’t just by coincidence that I felt better, I decided to go back on it and see what happens. Pretty much instantly I felt like crap again – headaches came back, I had mild anxiety again etc.

So you will be happy to know that now because of the awareness you gave me I now am Aspartame free and I feel great – no more headaches!!!

With kind regards,
(name withheld by request)

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 Desert 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, 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.

If it says “SUGAR FREE” on the label– DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!

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

    HI-6 Years ago I was having headaches and I had an MRI and they found an MRI that showed a very no big deal at all 3mm hemangioma on my brain….my headaches stopped- had another MRI 6 months later- still 3mm small nbd. Fast forward to 6 months ago….all of the sudden my one cup of tea a day is bothering me- for some reason I throw it up- but I need a little bit of caffine. SO- although I have NEVER been the type of person to carry soda in the house (I’m not exaggerating- in the past I might have bought a 2 ltr bc company is coming but if it didn’t get emptied that night, 6 months later the same 2 ltr could still be there all flat and forgotten in the back of the frdge!)that all being said- I started drinking diet pepsi. At first one can in the morning to replace my cup of tea. SOmewhere along the line it turned into an all day habit though where I was going through 2 2ltr btls a day. 3 months ago I start having strange migraines…..I go to my doctor who sends me to a neuro who sends me to get new MRIs ans it turns out my migraines are actually siezures and now my harmless 3mm hemangioma is 8mms big. That was December….Now in March its 10X8 and bleeding. I have stopped it with the diet pepsi. If it turns out that the growth of this hemangioma ceases as well than I know what the problems is now don’t I?! How can this be legal? Does anyone have any advice for me? I’ve been to a surgeon but he’s going to leave it where it is for now bc he feels the symptoms aren’t worth the risk of removing it just yet. So hopefully it’ll stop growing and that’ll be that! But if this really grew bc of diet pepsi! I jsut can’t even wrap my head around that….Like I don’t even know how to finish that sentence-

    «Mon frère dit que tout ça c’est de la “bullshit”. Qu’il y des tas d,études qui disent le contraire. Pourtant il boit beaucoup de Cola diète ^par jour et il est diabétique, fais de la fybromialgie, des trous de mémoire, un vision floue, des vertiges, des crampes! Il a tous les symptomes, son médecin lui a dit qu’il avait un mauvais foie. Est-ce qu’il y a moyen de démêler tout ça?

      Hello Nicole, I don’t know if your documentary is reliable, but in my experience as a health practitioner I see clear evidence that aspartame is not tolerated well by the body in many cases. However if your brother is not open to changing his lifestyle, there is little that you can do. It is up to him to help himself.
      Bonjour Nicole, je ne sais pas si votre documentaire est fiable, mais dans mon expérience en tant que praticien de la santé, je vois une preuve claire que l’aspartame n’est pas bien toléré par l’organisme dans de nombreux cas. Toutefois, si votre frère n’est pas prêt à changer son mode de vie, il ya peu que vous pouvez faire. Il est à lui de s’aider lui-même.

    Autre message de nicole girard: me réponde SVP. J’ai un documentaire de chercheurs Suisse dans une Université à Berne. Sont-il fiable? Répondez-moi SVP?

    My husband is addicted to pepsi max, just lately he has been waking up with severe muscle cramps and headaches, I have told him for ages to give up the max, but he didnt believe me until i told him about this site, I personally dont drink anything but tea and water, I gave coffee up 6 months ago and feel great…These diet drinks are poison and most people dont relate their health issues to these diet drinks…

    1. Shazar Robinson

      Yes Suzy.. I hope our information has helped him to kick the habit.. it is very addictive and can cause all sorts of symptoms in the body.

  5. Belinda

    Ok, there’s the problem. I love Pepsi Max and Coke Zero and have been drinking them for years (yes, I have a good deal of the symptoms too!). I was told years ago that when I drink spirits I should drink them with a ‘diet’ soda to lessen the calories and lose more weight. What t do now? I love a drink here and there and have to have some kind of ‘cola’ product with it. Any suggestions? Ta 🙂

    1. Shazar Robinson

      Belinda habits can be changed, but first you have to really want that. So the comment that you made .. ‘have to have some kind of cola product’ is open to possibile change. You coudl for instance shift to drinking a drink that goes with lime and soda.. and drink it with fresh lime and soda. Yes it takes some time to change a habit.. but a habit which is damaging to your health and makes you feel bad is not so hard to change. It is more the idea that you need to shift! You can adjust your tastes quite easily.. adjusting the mind is the trick! 🙂 good luck. and by the way .. I would rather see you drink the sugar loaded coke than the zero one.. sugar is bad for you sure.. but aspartame is way worse.
