Aspartame: Sabotage On Our Health
ASPARTAME: DANGERS LURK WITH CONSUMING THIS TOXIN!
It amazes and grieves me to see how many people are still consuming diet soft drinks and other products that contain aspartame. Even more bizarre is that the FDA and the medical industry still endorse it as safe for diabetics and people trying to lose weight. It baffles me how statements verifying it’s safeness are still allowed and promoted despite the overwhelming evidence from all over the world of the multitude of health problems that have been directly linked to it.
There are a horrid variety of problems people are experiencing after consuming aspartame. There seems to be a successful attempt at poisoning the people of the world in spite of the “safe guards” we supposedly have in place to keep things like this from happening! In spite of the warning cries from scientists and physicians and the victims afflicted…still this toxin is added to more and more foods and beverages, over 6000 that the manufacturers claim (there are other reports as high as 9000).
I share this article and several links to do what small part I can to help educate people who are not yet aware of the truth of aspartame. If you are concerned about your health and the health of your family and friends and any of them are drinking diet beverages or consuming low or no calorie food… please read and share this message and the following links with everyone you know!
Aspartame is the artificial sweetener made by Monsanto Corporation that is marketed as Equal, NutraSweet, E951, NutraTaste, Canderel, Benevia, and Spoonful as well as countless other trade names and is about 200 times sweeter than refined sugar that it is meant to replace.

The evidence has been in for years and can be easily found and verified – that aspartame is not only dangerous – it if often deadly! I have tried to convince myself in my own mind that perhaps because we are so busy with “life” that we have limited our time to read and research things as we would like to that has caused us to miss the dangers lurking with aspartame consumption.
In honesty however, I have had to admit that there is evidence of a very carefully managed and manipulated propaganda program in place that has dulled our minds to reality. How many times have we heard ..if we repeat a lie often enough it becomes the truth? It becomes even more effective when the people repeating the lies are the same people “drugging” the food supply with brain numbing chemicals!
Not enough people know that not too long ago,aspartame was on a Pentagon list of biowarfare chemicals submitted to Congress…yet this lethal product remains on our grocery shelves and is now in well over 6000 products that we consume! This man-made sweetener is becoming increasingly more difficult to avoid! In the mean time more and more people are being poisoned.

I have witnessed that it is very difficult to stop using the products even when awareness of the danger has been made. This is due to the very addictive property because of the free methyl alcohol causing methanol poisoning which is classified as a narcotic. This effects the dopamine system of the brain and causes addiction, which of course makes it difficult to withdraw from.
Way back in 1991 the National Institute of Health listed 167 symptoms and reasons to avoid the use of aspartame. It is known to affect short-term memory and erode intelligence. Its components also may lead to a wide variety of ailments including but not limited to:
- brain tumors
- sudden cardiac death
- stomach problems
- birth defects
- hearing loss and ringing in the ears
- blindness, blurred vision and other eye problems
- emotional disorders like depression and anxiety attacks
- lymphoma, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s,Alzheimer s, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue
This list is just the tip of the ice burg! Aspartame complaints represent 80-85% of food complaints registered with the FDA! This so-called “diet”aid can have multiple neuro-toxic, metabolic, allergenic, fetal and carcinogenic effects.
The kicker – even though many people still consider it a safe “diet” food – there is volumes of scientific evidence that the chemical actually causes people who use it to consume MORE food by craving carbohydrates! A study of 80,000 women by the American Cancer Society found that those who used this neurotoxic sweetener actually gained more weight than those who did not use aspartame products.
If you are on a diet, aspartame is not your friend! If you are diabetic, aspartame is not your friend. And if you just consume “diet stuff” to be a little healthier, the powers that be have got you fooled!
We must get the word out!
The dangers of aspartame poisoning have been a well guarded secret since the 1980′s.
The structure of aspartame seems simple, but is really a complicated structure when broken down. There are two isolated amino acids in aspartame that are fused together by its third component, methanol. In this structure, methanol bonds the two amino acids together, phenylalanine and aspartic acid, but when released at a mere 86 degrees Fahrenheit, the methanol becomes a poisonous free radical. Remember, your body temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit!
Methanol which makes up 10 percent of aspartame breaks down into formic acid and formaldehyde which is embalming fluid…that stuff they pulled the frogs out of for dissection in biology class! Methanol is a dangerous neurotoxin, a know carcinogen, causes retinal damage in the eye, interferes with DNA replication and causes birth defects. And we eat and drink it???
Aspartic acid makes up about 40 percent of the structure of aspartame. Under excess conditions the structure of aspartic acid can cause hormone disorders and vision problems. It is also a neuroexciter. Hyperactivity is stimulated by aspartic acid so this structure would be terrible for ADD/ADHD conditions and of course should be avoided during pregnancy. And we eat and drink it???
Adverse reactions to aspartic acid are: headaches/migraines, nausea, abdominal pain, fatigue, sleep disorders, vision problems, anxiety attacks, depression, and asthma/chest tightness.
Here is an interesting fact about phenylalanine. The 1976 Groliers encyclopedia states cancer cannot live without phenylalanine – Aspartame is 50% phenylalanine. Now while phenylalanine is one of the essential amino acids found in proteins it is in combination with other amino acids always. No amino acid comes in an isolated form in nature.
What we must know is that isolated phenylalanine is a neurotoxin and excites the neurons in the brain to the point of cellular death. It lowers the seizure threshold and depletes seratonin. Lowered seratonin is what causes insomnia, suicidal tendencies, panic attacks, anxiety, and changes in mood, etc. And we eat and drink it???
Again, ADD/ADHD, emotional and behavioral disorders can all be triggered by too much phenylalanine in the diet. Also, if you are one in ten thousand people who are PKU or carry the PKU gene, phenylalanine can cause irreversible brain damage and even death, especially when used in high quantities or during pregnancy. Phenylalanine can also be very dangerous for diabetics.
I will not list here the deceptive history of how aspartame has been allowed into our food supply because there are many wonderful and thorough sites already doing this. If you think that cover-ups and buy outs aren’t around today, research aspartames backers and promoters and then let me know if you still believe no cover-up! This one reeks of fraudulence and atrocities almost incomprehensible!

Please take the time to do a thorough investigation of the truth about aspartame! Your health and your children’s health depend on it! I am confident that the TRUTH always wins in the long run. As usual I have to wonder if we haven’t found it because we don’t seek it! This problem is too big to keep our heads buried in the sand!
According to Lendon Smith, MD there is an enormous population suffering from aspartame side effects and yet they have no idea why drugs, herbs and supplements don’t help their symptoms. I know there are also many who have no “apparent” immediate symptoms, however these individuals are susceptible to the long term damage of the excitatory amino acids and menthol toxicity.
We must remember also that the symptoms people are experiencing are not allergic reactions or sensitivities, but diseases and disease symptoms. For this reason aspartame poisoning is often misdiagnosed because the symptoms “mock” textbook symptoms for the actual disease.
If you know of anyone who suspects or is sure they are experiencing aspartame poisoning they need to know that there are aspartame detox programs available to help them! These can also be found on the www.dorway.com website as well as other places on the wonderful world of the web. If enough of us keep sharing the information via the web perhaps with time the cry to stop poisoning our food sources will be heard and addressed!
