Aspartame and Diet Soda
by Dr. Leo Rebello
When the temperature of Aspartame (artificial sweetener) exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in it converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis.
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.
Patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas. In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. Many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly. This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia.
If you are using Aspartame (Nutra Sweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss you probably have Aspartame poisoning.
But modern medicine, a pseudo science, cannot diagnose people with Aspartame harm or they diagnose in error. There are any number of examples when diagnosis is totally off the mark, but each 'one-disease, one-organ' specialist goes on giving more and more medicines and create more and diseases. Create more diseases and cash on it being the operating principle of disease-business and crap science.
Instead of running after these blind, deaf and dumb medicine men, stop drinking diet sodas and xbe alert for Aspartame on food labels.
Diet soda is not a diet product. It is a chemically altered, multiple Sodium (salt) and Aspartame containing product that actually makes you crave for carbohydrates and gain weight. These products also contain formaldehyde, which stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs. Does that explain why the population of USA is turning obese and/or suffering from Cancers and Diabetes?
Formaldehyde is an absolute toxin and is used primarily to preserve 'tissue specimens.
Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics. Some physicians, who believed that they had a patient with retinopathy, in fact, had symptoms caused by Aspartame. The Aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control. Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are neurotoxic. Especially with diabetics, the Aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier and it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain; causing various levels of brain damage, seizures, depression, panic attacks, uncontrollable anger and rage.
Consumption of Aspartame causes these same symptoms in non-diabetics as well. Documentation and observation also reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when these chemicals have been removed from their diet. So called 'behavior modification prescription drugs' (Ritalin and others) are no longer needed. Truth be told, they were never needed in the first place.
Most of these children were being 'poisoned' on a daily basis. It can cause mental retardation and other birth defects, if taken at the time of conception and during early pregnancy.
Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should never be given artificial sweeteners. There are many different case histories to relate of children suffering grand mal seizures and other neurological disturbances talking about a plague of neurological diseases directly caused by the use of this deadly poison.
Monsanto's patent on Aspartame has expired. But there are now over 5,000 products on the market in USA alone that contain this deadly chemical and there will be thousands more introduced.
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 was exposed in the New York Times: "These [organizations] 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".
Aspartame was approved for use in dry foods in 1981 and in soft drinks in 1983. Senator Howard Metzenbaum, of Ohio, who passed away in March 2008 at the age of 90, wrote and presented The Aspartame Safety Bill (S. 1554) in 1983 that would require label warnings on products containing Aspartame, especially regarding pregnant women, children and infants. A key element of Metzenbaum's bill was required labeling that would have cautioned consumers how much aspartame they could ingest, the maximum allowable daily intake established by the FDA and a special warning for pregnant women. The bill stated that the warning information "be included on such labels and labeling in a manner which is the most useful to individuals who consume such food." Metzenbaum's bill mandated independent tests by the National Institutes of Health, focusing on brain chemistry, behavioral and neurological reactions, headaches, mood alterations, memory loss and effects on pregnant women and fetuses. The bill was killed by intense lobbying by Pfizer and other (P)harma MNCs in cahoot with the American FDA. Though FDA stands for Food and Drug Administration to save the people, over the years it has come to be known as Fast Death Administration -- a branch of the CIA's Population Control Program.
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. And yet it is a tragedy that more and more people even in this information age are becoming suckers. Beware of the games the (P)harma mafia plays.
