ASPERTAME 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 be 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.

Subject: SWEET POISON - Artificial Sweeteners - A MUST READ
From: Kelly
To: Bob Butts

In October of 2001, my 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.

All her tests were inconclusive. On March 19, I called her to ask how her most recent tests went, and she said they didn't find anything on the test, but they believed she had MS.

I recalled an article a friend of mine e-mailed to me and I asked my sister if she drank diet soda. She told me that she did.

I e-mailed her the article my friend, a lawyer, had sent.

My sister called me within 32 hours after our phone conversation and told me she had stopp ed drinking the diet soda AND she could walk! The muscle spasms went away. She said she didn't feel 100% but she sure felt a lot better. She told me she was going to her doctor with this article and would call me when she got home.

Well, she called me, 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. This is also found in all chewing gum and most flavored yogurt. Yes - read the ingredients. You need to and have a right to know too. It is aspartame poisoning.

In a nutshell, she was being poisoned by the Aspartame in the diet soda . . and literally dying a slow and miserable death.

If it says 'SUGAR FREE' on the label; D O NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!

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, 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 toxici ty 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 asymptomatic, once taken off diet sodas.

In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. We've seen 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 (NutraSweet, 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 visi on, or m emory loss, you probably 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.

Dr. Espart (one of my speakers) remarked that so many people seem to be symptomatic for MS and 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. This is 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!

These products also contain formaldehyde, which stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs. Formaldehyde is an absolute toxin and is us ed pri mar ily to preserve 'tissue specimens.' Many products we use every day contain this chemical but we SHOULD NOT store it IN our body!

Dr. H. J. Roberts stated in his lectures that once free of the 'diet products,' and with no significant increase in exercise, his patients lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period.

Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics.

We found that 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 when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance.

Treating diabetes is all 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, d epress ion, 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 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 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 durin g earl y pr egnancy.

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. Talk 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 100 different products 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 5,000 products on the market that contain this deadly chemical and there will be thousands more introduced. Everybody wants a 'piece of the Aspartame pie.' I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of Asp artame , kno ws 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 (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.

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 known that the powerful drug and chemical lobbies are responsible for thi s, let ting l oose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting and uninformed public. Well, you're Informed now!

YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW !

In the early 1980’s, while living in Virginia, I started to use a new artificial sweetener called “EQUAL.”  I was always watching my weight and it sounded good, so I decided to try it.  At that exact time I began having some intestinal problems, a loud rumbling and a lot of movement  in my small and large intestines (if you looked closely you could actually see my lower abdomen in spasm).  It was so strong at times it made me nauseous and was painful and uncomfortable.

I mentioned this to my chiropractor and he suggested I go home and bring a packet of it for him to check.  I put some under my tongue as he held his hands on my lower abdomen.  The loud noise and movement began immediately.  He advised me to stop taking EQUAL and to watch other products I consumed to make sure they did not contain aspartame, as it appeared I was highly allergic to some component in this product.

I stopped using EQUAL and the problem stopped as quickly as it had come.  I did not have any aspartame for years.  The problem never returned.  In 1986 I moved to Pennsylvania and was attending a party at my daughter’s home and someone gave me a soft drink.  I didn’t even think and drank it and immediately became ill with the same symptoms as back in the 80’s.  I checked the bottle and I had consumed a diet drink with aspartame.  Since then I always check all things I purchase in grocery stores, as well as in restaurants to be sure I am not getting any aspartame.

From that time until the present, I have not had any recurrence of that problem.
