Diet Soda -- True story

Aspartame has been linked to: brain cancer, memory loss, impaired vision, hearing loss, joint pain, asthma, coma, seizures...?

Don't blame God for this!  He didn't make it.

July 2005

A new three year study has confirmed the link between aspartame and cancer. The toxic sweetener was known to be dangerous when corrupt FDA officials approved it against the advice of their own scientists.

Click the following link to read this recent study, entitled "ASPARTAME MAKERS TELL A WHOPPER!":

This new study was also reported on 14 July 05 by the BBC in their report entitled:

Fresh doubts about the safety of an artificial sweetener have been raised by Italian scientists who have linked its use to leukemia's in rodents.


March 2004 email to

     In October of 2001, a friend's sister started getting very sick. She had stomach spasms and she was having a hard time getting around. Walking was a major chore. It took everything she had just to get out of bed, she was in so much pain. By March 2002, she had undergone several tissue and muscle biopsies and was on 24 various prescription medications.  The doctors could not determine what was wrong with her.  Because of her pain and sickness, she was sure she was dying.

She put her house, Bank accounts, life insurance, etc. in her oldest daughter's name, and made sure that her younger children were to be taken care of.  She also wanted a last hoorah, so she planned a trip to FL (basically in a wheelchair) for March 22nd.

On March 19th my friend called her to ask how her most recent tests went, and she said they didn't find out anything on the test, but they believed she had MS.  He recalled an E-mail article I might have sent to him and asked his sister if she drank diet pop?  She told him that she did.  As a matter of fact, she was about to open one at that very moment.  He told her not to open it, to stop drinking diet pop altogether.  He then E-mailed her the Aspartame article.  His sister called him within 32 hours after their phone conversation and told him she had stopped drinking the diet pop AND she could walk!  The muscle spasms went away as well. She said she didn't feel 100% but she sure felt a lot better.  She told him she was going to her doctor with this article and would call him when she got home.  Well, she called and said her doctor was amazed!  He is going to call all of his MS patients to find out if they consumed artificial sweeteners of any kind.

In a nutshell, she was being poisoned by the Aspartame in the diet soda and literally dying a slow and miserable death.  When she got to FL March 22nd, all she had to take was one pill, and that was a pill for the Aspartame poisoning.  She is well on her way to a complete recovery and she is walking. No wheelchair!

This article saved her life: If it says "SUGAR FREE" on the label, DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT! ASPARTAME," is marketed as 'NutraSweet', 'Equal', and 'Spoonful'.

In a keynote address by the EPA, it was announced that in the United States in 2001 there was an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus.  It was difficult to determine exactly what toxin was causing this to be rampant.

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.  Many cases have been seen where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly. This also applies to cases on tinnitus and fibromyalgia
.  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, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision or memory loss... you may have ASPARTAME poisoning! Is it reversible?

YES! YES! YES! STOP drinking diet sodas and be alert for Aspartame on food labels.

Many products are fortified with it. This is a serious problem.  A doctor remarked that so many people seemed to have been symptomatic for MS during his recent visit to a hospice.  A nurse stated that six of her friends who were heavy Diet Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. Doesn't this seem beyond coincidence?

Diet soda is not a diet product! it is a chemically altered, multiple SODIUM (salt) and
Aspartame-containing product that actually makes you crave carbohydrates.  It is far more likely to make you GAIN weight!

Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics.  We found that 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 when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance.

Treating diabetes is about BALANCE.  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, manic 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 turn around 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 with the very foods that were "better for them than sugar."  It is also suspected that the Aspartame in thousands of pallets of Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the
Gulf War may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome.

Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause birth defects, i.e. mental retardation, 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 due to the use of NutraSweet.

Unfortunately, it is not always easy to convince people that Aspartame is to blame for their child's illness.  Stevia, which is a sweet herb, NOT A MANUFACTURED ADDITIVE, helps in the metabolism of sugar, which would be ideal for diabetics. It has now been approved as a dietary supplement by the FDA. It is known that for many years the FDA outlawed this "true sweet food," due to their loyalty to MONSANTO Chemical Company.

Books on this subject are available: EXCITOXINS:THE TASTE THAT KILLS by Dr. Russell Blaylock, (Health Press 1-800-643-2665) and DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE 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 in 100 different product and strong objection was made concerning its 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 5000 products on the market that contain this deadly chemical and there will now 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 Associations 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 know 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.

Did you know that in the 1970's it was Donald Rumsfeld, CEO of Searle who was influential in getting Aspartame approved by the FDA?


2 March 2008 Update

The Jerusalem Post's health page of March 2, the headline was: "Artificial sweeteners may cause weight gain," based on research published by the American Psychological Association.

It seems that sweet foods provide a "salient orosensory stimulus" which strongly predicts that one is about to take in a lot of calories, and the body's ingestive and digestive reflexes gear up accordingly to deal with them. But when the sweetness is "false," as in diet drinks, and isn't followed by lots of calories, the system gets confused, interfering with the body's ability to regulate intake.


in the history of American health!
below reference: here

  • Did you know the FDA refused to approve this best-selling sweetener for 16 years...?
  • Until one powerful politician called in a favor which finally got it legalized...?
  • And now it's been linked to brain cancer, memory loss, impaired vision, hearing loss, joint pain, asthma, coma, seizures...?

See below, save your life and learn the real facts about...

My Dear Incredulous Friend:

Ever wonder what our former Secretary of Defense did before he got into politics?

Well years ago, he was the fearless leader of a company called GD Searle Corp. that developed a "miracle sweetener" called aspartame. (Yes, the very same stuff contained in that those that little blueblue packet.)

For years, this company tried in vain to get aspartame approved. But no one wanted to go near the stuff! The FDA refused to approve it for 16 years. In fact, according to a report I recently uncovered, the late Dr. M. Adrian Gross, a former senior FDA toxicologist, stated in his testimony before Congress:

"Beyond a shadow of a doubt, aspartame triggers brain tumors"and, "therefore, by allowing aspartame to be placed on the market the FDA has violated the Delaney Amendment, which forbids putting anything in food that is know to cause cancer...And if the FDA itself elects to violates its own the law, who is left to protect the health of the public?"


But wait, it gets worse...

In the early '80s, "Rummy the Magnificent" moved into the political arena. And one of the first moves he made was to appoint a new FDA commissioner. And guess what he did? In 1981, the new appointee approved aspartame for the good old boys back at GD Searle...despite the clinically proven dangers.

Before long, aspartame was everywhere, from soda to salad dressing! Now let's look at what it's "contributed" to America's health...

92 reasons why aspartame makes sugar look like a "good guy"...

For starters, medical authorities estimate that aspartame has brought more complaints to the FDA than any other additive. In fact, it's responsible for as many as 75 percent of such complaints to that agency. And, after receiving some 10,000 consumer complaints, the FDA compiled a list of 92 symptoms linked to aspartame -- including death.

Headaches, memory loss, seizures, vision loss, coma, and cancer. It also appears to worsen or mimic the symptoms of such conditions as fibromyalgia, MS, lupus, ADD, diabetes, Alzheimer's, chronic fatigue, and depression...

Why so many? It could be because aspartame attacks your body at the cellular level so it can negate all kinds of medications Americans take, including antidepressants, Coumadin, cardiac drugs, hormones, insulin, vaccines, and many others.

It is a deadly neurotoxic drug masquerading as a harmless additive.

And to add insult to injury...

Aspartame could makes you hungrier and fatter!

One medical investigator, Dr. H. J. Roberts, even concludes that aspartame has caused our obesity epidemic. He gives evidence that this "guilt-free" sweetener secretly makes you crave carbohydrates which, of course, make you gain weight.

How? Possibly it may trigger or over stimulate the stomach's production of ghrelin, also known as the "hunger hormone." If this hypothesis turns out to be correct, it will help to explain why all those "diet" sodas have never been much help in weight reduction. (In fact, just the opposite!)

So why is the media mum?

Simple. Because professional organizations and their publications have all been bought off.

By who? The food giants. They all use this inexpensive imposter in huge quantities for their colas, desserts, candies, and other junk foods. And they're the ones who have financed a raft of studies "proving" the safety of aspartame.

So what's safe and actually

I can hear you asking: "Ok, so what can I sprinkle into my coffee?"

Let's run through the usual suspects then I'll tell you what I've been using...

SUGAR: A spoonful once in a while is fine, but in time, too much sugar can lead to diabetes, which will lead to heart disease, renal disease, peripheral vascular disease, diabetic retinitis (blindness), diabetic peripheral neuropathy and the list goes on and on. (Even so, next to aspartame, sugar looks almost attractive!)

SUCRALOSE: A very dangerous new chemical -- because in order to make sucralose, chlorine is added to sugar! Ever spilled chlorine bleach on your skin? No wonder that research by the Sucralose Toxicity Information Center showed that years of sucralose use can lead to serious compromise of the immune system and neurological disorders.

SACCHARINE: Yuck. Despite those famous animal studies, I actually don't count saccharine as much of a cancer threat to humans. But face it, saccharine tastes like the chemical experiment it is. Enough said.

STEVIA: Yes, it's natural. Yes, it's safe. But no, it tastes nothing like sugar. Okay for some, but not in my coffee!

XYLITOL: Almost gets a perfect score. Natural, tastes like sugar, good for your teeth, doesn't spike blood sugar. On the down side, it gives some folks the trots.
