Artificial Sweeteners Sickness - Aspartame Disease An Ignored Epidemic

The food and beverage industry is increasingly replacing sugar or corn syrup with artificial sweeteners in a range of products traditionally containing sugar. Sold commercially under names like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, Equal-Measure and Canderel, aspartame can be found in more than 6,000 products. "Aspartame (NutraSweet) appears to cause slow, silent damage in those unfortunate enough to not have immediate reactions and a reason to avoid it. It may take one year, five years, 10 years, or 40 years, but it seems to cause some reversible and some irreversible changes in health over long-term use." "Aspartame has a profound effect on mood and cognition....depressed mood, anxiety, dizziness, panic attacks, nausea, irritability, impairment of memory and concentration."

The Bitter Truth About certain artificial sweeteners

NutraSweet (Aspartame) and Sucralose (Splenda) in particular

Artificial sweeteners are marketed with the promise of weight control, and the vast majority of people who consume them do so to either lose or avoid gaining weight. Folks, this is a fraud of gigantic proportions. Since aspartame came on the market in l981, it has accounted for more than 75 percent of the complaints reported in the FDA's Adverse Reaction Monitoring system. the most common adverse reactions attributed toaspartame are headaches, dizziness, attention difficulties, memory loss, slurred speech and vision problems. this cluster of symptoms has become so common that it is actually referred to as "aspartame disease".

Even more serious disorders have a suspected link with aspartame. Is it an accident that the incidence of brain tumors has increased by 10% since l975? John W. Olney, MD, of the Washington University Medical School in St. Louis believes there may be a link between the two. In an article published in The Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology, he notes that animal studies reveal high levels of brain tumors in aspartame-fed rats. According to Dr. Olney, recent findings show that aspartame has mutagenic (cancer-causing) potential, and the sharp rise in malignant brain tumors coincides with the increased use of aspartame.

The U.S. Navy and Air Force published articles in Navy Physiology and Flying Safety with this warning: "several researchers have found aspartame can increase the frequency of seizures, or lower the stimulation necessary to induce them. this means a pilot who drinks diet sodas is more susceptible to flicker vertigo, or to flicker-induced epileptic activity. It also means that all pilots are potential victims of sudden memory loss, dizziness during instrument flight, and gradual loss of vision." more...

A 2005 study by the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio showed that increased weight gain and obesity was associatedAspartame Disease an Ignored Epidemic. Premature aging caused by apartame neurotoxins. Symptoms of nutrasweet or aspartame poisoning are depressed mood and cognition, anxiety, dizziness, panic attacks, nausea, irritability, impairment of memory and concentration.with increased use of diet soda in a population based study. Animal studies have indicated that artificial sweeteners can cause body weight gain. A sweet taste induces an insulin response, which causes blood sugar to be stored in tissues (including fat), but because blood sugar does not increase with artificial sugars, there is hypoglycemia and increased food intake the next time there is a meal. After a while, rats given sweeteners have steadily increased calorie intake, increased body weight, and increased adiposity (fatness). List of sugar substitutes

Dr. Janet Starr Hull -The testing of sucralose reveals that it can cause up to 40 percent shrinkage of the thymus: a gland that is the very foundation of our immune system. Sucralose also causes swelling of the liver and kidneys, and CALCIFICATION of the kidney. Note: if you experience kidney pain, cramping, or an irritated bladder after using sucralose in Splenda, stop use immediately.

H. J. Roberts, M.D. "I have observed severe intellectual deterioration associated with the use of aspartame products. It was usually manifest as great difficulty in reading and writing, obvious problems with memory and grossly impaired orientation to time, place and person. Many reactions to aspartame were very serious including seizures and death. Other reactions reported included: Headaches/Migraines, Dizziness, Joint Pain, Nausea, Numbness, Muscle spasms, Weight gain, Rashes, Depression, Fatigue, Irritability, Tachycardia, Insomnia, Vision Loss, Hearing Loss, Heart palpitations, Breathing difficulties, Anxiety attacks, Slurred Speech, Loss of taste, Tinnitus, and Vertigo Memory loss" more

James Bowen, M.D., author of Billions Of People Are Now Aspartame Victims, told the FDA years ago "Every known metabolite of aspartame is of marked or questionable toxicity and patently unsafe for human use." In Aspartame Murders Infants he said: "At every point in the fertility process aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal/Spoonful/Canderal/Benevia, etc.) destroys. ....It ruins female sexual response and induces male sexual dysfunction. Beyond this, aspartame disrupts fetal development by aborting it or inducing defects. And if a live child is born aspartame may have heinously damaged the DNA of the baby cursing future generation." See his paper on Sperm Warfare. We are now taking case histories for class action on aspartame starting with seizures, brain tumors, eye deterioration and blindness, etc.

James Bowen, M.D. - "Lying and deceit on the artificial sweetener issue has been the FDA's Modus Operandi ever since Donald Rummsfeld broke everything decent in the US government to put Aspartame on the market as a "contract on humanity". It has no commercial purpose other than a contract on humanity. Either they have done but little testing of sucralose, or they are so afraid of what the public would think of sucralose, and the government if the public but knew what was going on, that they will not tell us! BECAUSE: we have been told nothing about the extensive studies which would have to have been done if very reasonable, and scientifically sound FDA rules had been followed."

  • Coca Cola, Pepsi, Nutra Sweet Sued in California - 06 April 2004 - Lawsuits were filed in three separate California courts against twelve companies who either produce or use the artificial sweetener aspartame as a sugar substitute in their products. The suits were filed in Shasta, Sonoma and Butte County, California.
  • Racketeering Charges Filed Against Companies for Manufacturing and Marketing Toxic Aspartame The National Justice League recently filed a$350 Million Class Action lawsuit on September 15, 2004 in San Francisco, California, Federal District Court against Nutrasweet, Monsanto, The American Diabetes Association and Dr. Robert H. Moser, former FDA Commissioner.

The FDA has received over 5,500 complaints against Aspartame (NutraSweet), which was legalized amid controversy regarding the capacity of this substance to alter brain hormone balances; some 9% of the complaints today involve serious neurological effects, including seizures. A recent major study by UCLA researchers of 109 patent-drug advertisements found 81% to be "inaccurate, misleading and even dangerous." A General Accounting Office report found that 51.5% of patent drugs approved by the FDA between 1978 and 1986 had "serious post-approval risks" not disclosed on originally-approved package inserts, including "heart failure, myocardial infarction, anaphylaxis, respiratory depression, convulsions, seizures, kidney and liver failure, severe blood disorders, birth defects and blindness"

What we have here is a case of yet more pro-aspartame propaganga being paraded around as legitimate science. It’s really more of a junk science fraud fest designed to prop up the aspartame industry a little longer even as new science keeps coming out showing the chemical sweetener to be potentially quite dangerous to health. For the Ajinomoto company to fund a review by paying money to an industry-friendly consulting group that coincidentally happens to find aspartame to be perfectly safe strains credibility to such a degree that only a fool would put any weight in this announcement. It’s like the R.J. Reynolds company announcing nicotine is not addictive, or Coca-Cola declaring that high fructose corn syrup does not promote obesity. Artificial Sweeteners Linked To Weight Gain
Researchers have laboratory evidence that the widespread use of no-calorie sweeteners may actually make it harder for people to control their intake and body weight. A Purdue University study released Sunday in the journal Behavioral Neuroscience reported that rats on diets containing the artificial sweetener saccharin gained more weight than rats given sugary food, casting doubt on the benefits of low-calorie sweeteners. more

Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic

Dr. Roberts does an excellent job of summarizing the neurological and physiological effects of chronic aspartame consumption using observations from his years of medical practice as an internist as well as information obtained from other physicians and from a detailed questionnaire he sent out to a large population group. Aspartame is an artificial sweetener that is widely used in 'diet' soda pop as well as chewing gum, instant iced tea, jello mixes, and other food products. The weakest part of the book is probably where it attempts to identify possible mechanisms for the neurological effects of Aspartame since research is still in the early stages on WHY Aspartame has some of the negative neurological effects that are observed. Understandably, though, Dr. Roberts, feels compelled to attempt to address that question and points to several possibilities including the toxicity of aspartame metabolites such as methanol, the increased neurotoxicity of optical stereoisomers produced during storage at elevated temperatures, phenylalanine vulnerability of the 1 in 50 people who are recessive carriers of the gene for PKU disease, artificial imbalanced consumption of amino acids, interaction with neurotransmitter levels in the body, etc. Some of these are the objects of current research projects but knowledge on pathways and mechanisms is still in the early stage of discovery. Dr. Roberts clinical observations of aspartame-triggered illness are excellent and speak to his experience and skill as a physician. This book is required reading for anyone who is interested in the physical manifestations of aspartame-caused illness. The Shocking Dangers of MSG You Don’t Know - A silent killer that’s worse than alcohol, nicotine, and drugs is likely lurking in your kitchen cabinets and even your child’s school cafeteria. It’s monosodium glutamate (MSG), a flavor enhancer that’s known widely as an addition to Chinese food, but that’s actually added to thousands of the foods you eat. In this telling three-part video series, you’ll find out why Dr. Russell Blaylock, a board-certified neurosurgeon, describes MSG as a dangerous excitotoxin, and learn how this toxin could be making you fat.

One Woman's Astonishing Experiment With Aspartame
There is so much evidence showing aspartame to be a potentially deadly agent that several prominent, well-educated doctors and even judges have written books on the subject. Victoria Inness-Brown’s family was addicted to diet soda. After researching the effects of aspartame, she strongly believed the artificial sweetener might one day lead to their illness or even their early deaths. So she decided to perform her own aspartame experiment -- with 108 rats for 2 years and 8 months. Daily, she fed some of the rats the equivalent, for their body weight, of two-thirds the aspartame contained in 8-oz of diet soda. Eleven of the females who took aspartame -- 37 percent -- developed tumors, some of massive size. learn more

Sold commercially under names like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, Equal-Measure and Canderel, aspartame can be found in more than 6,000 products, including:

Diet sodas, juice drinks, and flavored waters
Chewing gum
Table-top sweeteners
Diet and diabetic foods
Breakfast cereals, such as Fiber One
Fiber supplements, such as orange flavored Metamucil
Jams and Sweets
It’s even found in vitamins, as well as prescription and over the-counter drugs such as Alka Seltzer Plus, and some Tylenol medications.

Ralph Walton, M.D., Psychiatrist, Chairman of the Center for Behavioral Medicine: "We have known for years that when aspartame is ingested with a carbohydrate rich meal the usual physiologic increase in tryptophan is blocked, while brain phenylalanine and tyrosine concentrations are increased. These changes in amino acid blocked neurotransmitter precursors could, I believe, alter indoleamine/catechloamine balance, and thus have a profound effect on mood and cognition....depressed mood, anxiety, dizziness, panic attacks, nausea, irritability, impairment of memory and concentration."

Learn How Aspartame Damage Your Brain

Aspartame Recall: A Message Congress Cannot Ignore
by Dr. Betty Martini
Children Are Especially At Risk

Dr. John Olney, founder of the neuroscience field called excitotoxicity, testified on the damage of aspartame to the brains of children: "If a human infant or child sustained hypothalamic damage from glutamate or aspartate, delayed sequelae such as obesity and subtle disturbances in the neuroendocrine status of the individual are the types of effects to be expected and it would not be until adolescence or perhaps early adulthood that such effects would become evident." Now we are plagued with the obesity epidemic he prophesied.

Dr. Olney warned of the damage that this product would do to the unborn and to children. He said that the FDA acknowledged "aspartame had been shown to induce brain damage in neonatal animals” but FDA dismissed the neurotoxicity as irrelevant on grounds that the approved uses of aspartame don’t include feeding it to newborn humans. Yet aspartame can be found in prescription and over-the-counter pediatric drugs and in pediatric vitamins. Nursing babies receive this poison from mothers who breastfeed. How gruesome! The recent plague of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), autism, and birth defects manifest the neurologic devastations of aspartame. Supporting this view, Dr. Louis Elsas, Emory Professor of Pediatrics and Genetics, testified in a congressional hearing that aspartame is a teratogen (causes birth defects) and a neurotoxin.

When the Miami Herald quoted the Calorie Control Council, a front group recommending NutraSweet for women during pregnancy and those with liver disease and phenylketonuria, renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock wrote, “this is the most serious breach of public trust in the history of this nation." The Feingold Association, an organization of ADD people, says the term ADD first came into use around 1981, which curiously enough is when aspartame was approved. All of Drs. Roberts’ and Olney's prophecies have come to pass: the damage to the unborn and our children is horrific.

Meanwhile, NutraSweet’s manufacturer pumps its propaganda pushing this product upon pregnant women and nursing mothers through, at best, an uninformed media. Aspartame was Monsanto’s Cash Cow in thousands of foods, the queen of sweeteners. Coca Cola displayed the NutraSweet swirl on Diet Coke. And little blue packets of Equal adorned millions of tables in the Western world. Every day in every way business got better and better. But the “NutraTanic” has hit an iceberg. read more

Dangerous Neurotoxins in our Everyday Food

Excitotoxins : The Taste That Kills by Russell L. Blaylock MD, Neurosurgeon

Excitotoxins are substances added to foods and beverages that literally stimulates neurons to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees. They can be found in such ingredients as monosodium glutamate, aspartame (Nutrasweet®), cysteine, hydrolyzed protein, and aspartic acid. Dr. Blaylock's book describes what excitotoxins are, where they are found, and how they react in the body. Dr. Blaylock, a board-certified neurosurgeon, presents the latest research findings to demonstrate how exposure to excitotoxins will damage nerve cells in the brain. The use of aspartame, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, and monosodium glutamate in prepared foods and beverages continues to increase on a yearly basis. Dr. Blaylock clearly demonstrates that the neurotoxic potential of excitotoxins such as MSG and aspartame is so overwhelming that it can no longer be ignored.

In Health & Nutrition Secrets, page 125, Dr. Blaylock says: "So, in the case of diet drinks in aluminum cans, the very toxic brain aluminum fluoride compound co-exists with multiple toxins found in aspartame, thus creating the most powerful government-approved toxic soup imaginable. With the strong association between aluminum, excitotoxins, aluminum fluoride complexes and Alzheimer's disease, it would be completely irresponsible to encourage people to consume this toxic mixture. Yet, this is done literally billions of times every year in advertising." In the Gulf, these diet drinks sat on pallets as long as 8 weeks at a time, piled high, in 120 degree temperatures.

Long-Term Damage
Aspartame (NutraSweet) appears to cause slow, silent damage in those unfortunate enough to not have immediate reactions and a reason to avoid it. It may take one year, five years, 10 years, or 40 years, but it seems to cause some reversible and some irreversible changes in health over long-term use.

Dr Starr Hull - "In October 2002 the FDA approved Neotame, a modified version of aspartame. Neotame may prove more troublesome than aspartame as it is suspected of causing similar health problems, learning and behavioral problems with more potency." more

Neurotoxin: MSG and How it is Hidden in our Food and Vaccines
Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) has been used for many years as a flavor enhancer for a variety of foods prepared at home, in restaurants, and by food processors. FDA has studied adverse reaction reports and other data concerning MSG's safety for many years. Ingestion of monosodium glutamate (MSG) is known to produce a variety of adverse reactions. These reactions, although seemingly dissimilar, are no more diverse than the reactions found as side effects of certain neurological drugs.

Sweet Poison: How the World's Most Popular Artificial Sweetener Is Killing Us

Millions of dieters using chemical sweeteners will be shocked by firefighter Janet Starr Hull's story. Diagnosed with a deadly case of Grave's Disease after she collapsed on the job, Hull was told she would die. Searching for the cause of her illness, Hull discovered that the chemical sweetener aspartame found in Nutrasweet was to blame.

After a personal illness caused by the artificial sweetener aspartame found in NutraSweet/Equal, Hull exposes the hidden truths behind the dangers of this popular sugar-substitute. Don't pick up another diet drink until you have read her riveting story.

Her book details how the FDA first determined that aspartame was unsafe for humans, then later reversed itself. She obtained documents revealing the chemicals that constitute aspartame and how those chemicals behave in the human body.

Sweet Poison is a must-read for anyone consuming food or drinks containing aspartame. At the least, it will open your eyes to what you're putting in your body. It might even save your life. more about Dr. Hull

ASPARTAME (NutraSweet): IS IT SAFE? by H.J. Roberts, M.D.

The truth about aspartame's toxicity is far different than what the NutraSweet Company would have your readers believe. In February of 1994, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released the listing of adverse reactions reported to the FDA (DHHS 1994). Aspartame accounted for more than 75% of all adverse reactions reported to the FDA's Adverse Reaction Monitoring System (ARMS). Many reactions to aspartame were very serious including seizures and death. Other reactions reported included: Headaches/Migraines Dizziness Joint Pain Nausea Numbness Muscle spasms Weight gain Rashes Depression Fatigue Irritability Tachycardia Insomnia Vision Loss Hearing Loss Heart palpitations Breathing difficulties Anxiety attacks Slurred Speech Loss of taste Tinnitus Vertigo Memory loss.

Aspartame - The World’s Best Ant Poison
Already aware of aspartame's origins as a toxic chemical, a health-conscious consumer with an ant problem emptied one packet of aspartame in the corner of each of her bathrooms two years ago. The "sweet" solution worked brilliantly, as she's seen no signs of carpenter ants crawling around for the past year. more

H. J. Roberts, M.D., who declared Aspartame Disease to be a global plague has now published a medical text titled Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic. On page 506 he discusses the deterioration of intelligence and learning skills in aspartame reactors, as evidenced by slippage in school performance. He says "It may take a generation or longer to ascertain the full extent of this problem." On Page 561 he discusses comparable problems with memory among, younger aspartame reactors and how they have been attributed to premature aging. He says this ties into the acceleration of Alzheimers Disease. "The need for considering exposure to aspartame and other neurotoxins before making a diagnosis of premature aging is paramount." . In an earlier book he also discusses. Dr. Roberts said: "I have observed severe intellectual deterioration associated with the use of aspartame products. It was usually manifest as great difficulty in reading and writing, obvious problems with memory and grossly impaired orientation to time, place and person. In some patients these features cleared slowly after the avoidance of aspartame."

Detoxifying from Aspartame Poison

Detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin.

Naturopaths who hold that illness can be healed by the natural processes of the body are the most vigorous supporters of detoxification, since they believe that the primary cause of disease is the accumulation of uneliminated wastes. When the body's natural cleansing systems are no longer up to the task, proponents of detoxification say everyone should detoxify at some point.

Dr. Ted H Spence, DDS, ND, PhD/DSc, MPH - "Detoxification comes in many forms and refers to many different programs that cleanse the body of toxins. Today, our environment is toxic and the foods we eat, even the air we breathe and the water we drink is laden with chemicals foreign to our system. Therefore, everyone is undergoing some type of detoxification to maintain life and health. Although basic detoxification begins with diet, detox programs may include nutritional fortification for the liver, lungs, kidneys, bowels and blood. Detoxification for the body may refer to the cleansing of the bowels, kidneys, lungs, the liver or the blood, since these are the organs involved in detoxification of chemicals and toxins from the body. The liver acts as an in-line filter for the removal of foreign substances and wastes from the blood. The kidneys filter wastes from the blood into the urine, while the lungs remove volatile gases as we breathe."

Detoxifying Clay

"A few years ago, I was diagnosed with heavy metal and chemical poisoning. Among the many toxic substances in my body, mercury from the fillings in my teeth was a major culprit. Having neither health insurance nor the money to pay for these expensive treatments, I began searching for alternative ways to eliminate these poisons--a major cause of immune system breakdown--and thus, the source of various diseases. Eventually, my search led me to a book, Using Energy to Heal, by Wendell Hoffman. Through his own research, Hoffman found that a special bentonite (a very fine volcanic clay) used in a bath can actually draw out toxic chemicals through the pores of the skin. After many experiments, he concluded that optimum results are obtained by immersing oneself in a tub of very warm water mixed with a special bentonite clay for exactly 20 minutes!" Lauana Lei

Clay has been used internally for thousands of years to remove the causes of disease symptoms. In 1986 after the meltdown of the Soviet nuclear power plant, Chernobyl, the Soviet Union put French Green Clay in chocolate bars and dispensed them freely to the masses to remove radiation they may have been exposed to. Found only in France and India, the ancient sea beds that provide the green clays have healing qualities that not only attach themselves to and remove toxic foreign substances within the body, but activate the body's own immune system through its chemical constitution. Green clays contain magnesium, calcium, potassium, manganese, phosphorous, zinc aluminum, silicon, copper, selenium, cobalt, micro-algaes, algae, and phyto-nutrients. French green clay has the ability to remove toxic metals and chemical residues, bacteria, and blood toxins with virtually no side effects of constipation, diarrhea, or stomach cramping. It is known to remove radiation, arsenic, lead, mercury, and aluminum amid other toxic metals in less than six weeks. The more you use, the quicker you detox." Detoxifying clay baths have been shown to be able to literally pull pollutants out like a magnet, getting rid of years of toxic accumulation in just one bath. Detoxification symptoms are less than from internal chelation methods, and results can happen much more quickly. These clay baths have been scientifically proven to release toxic metals and chemicals from the body, and they are so inexpensive that anyone can afford to take them. more

Chemicals and Toxins Are The Primary Cause of Illness, Disease and Obesity

Substances that are toxic to our bodies come at us from all directions: the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, the cleaning products we use, and the metabolic waste produced inside us. Toxins build-up in the body contribute to premature aging and chronic and degenerative diseases. Studies have discovered various chemicals from our foods and environment that indicate man contributes 700,000 tons of pollutants into the air every day, ranging from everyday household cleaners to cosmetics and hair dyes. Chemicals and toxins accumulate in fat tissue. The more chemicals and toxins, the more fat the body manufactures. Internal detoxification is one of our body's most basic automatic functions but in our world today, body systems and organs that were once capable of cleaning out unwanted substances are now completely overloaded; thus many unwanted substances stay in our tissues.

Your immune system is your bodyguard. It works both pro-actively and protectively to shield you from anything in your world that threatens your life and limb. The immune system is not responsive to drugs for healing. By rebuilding immunity, health is naturally restored and disease disappears. If health and immunity are thereafter conscientiously maintained, the individual is no longer vulnerable to disease. According t o Dr. George C Pack, MD, a cancer specialist at Cornell medical School, almost everyone has cancer cells present at times in our bodies. If our immune system is working properly, these cells are killed or reabsorbed by our defense system before they begin to grow and threaten our health. The only real defense against cancer is the immune system. Everyone gets cancer every day but if the immune system is where it should be those cancer cells are eliminated and we never know it.

Michael J. Fox Foundation: Parkinson's research fraud?
By Don Harkins

Last spring actor Michael J. Fox, a victim of Parkinson's disease, announced that he was quitting acting and was going to dedicate his efforts and energies to finding a “cure” for the degenerative disease. Since that time, The Idaho Observer has tried repeatedly to supply the Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) with medical proof that there is hope for Parkinson's victims. According to Betty Martini, one of the world's leading authorities on aspartame and the toll it has had on society in terms of human misery, “Michael Fox has also been a Diet Pepsi spokesman and informants say he is addicted, drinking many a day.” Diet Pepsi contains the FDA-approved artificial sweetener aspartame. Aspartame is an extremely volatile substance that, under ordinary storage conditions, breaks down quickly into methanol, a known neurotoxin. The methanol then breaks down into formaldehyde. The FDA has never established a safe level of formaldehyde that can be consumed by humans.

According to The Consumer's Dictionary of Medicines, formaldehyde is, “.a highly reactive chemical that is damaging to the hereditary substances in the cells of several animal species.” The aspartame that is used to sweeten Diet Pepsi, NutraSweet, “.is a neurotoxin that triggers neurodegenerative diseases and can precipitate Parkinson's,” Martini explained. Dr. James Bowen explained that the methyl alcohol of aspartame is arranged in such a fashion that it is “500 to 5,000 times more active in producing toxicity” than the methyl alcohol that is commonly found in alcoholic beverages. The path aspartame has taken to participate in Fox's degeneration is very complex, yet supported by peer-reviewed science. In essence, aspartame inhibits the body's ability to produce dopamine. Dopamine is essential for the proper functioning of the brain which in turn controls the body's many systems.

Dr. Bowen explained that Fox has apparently recognized his decreased capacity to produce dopamine and has reportedly taken therapeutic levels of pharmaceutical dopamine to combat his degenerative condition. According to Dr. Bowen, “The use of aspartame completely defeats this therapeutic endeavor.” At the MJFF website it is listed that one of the companies the foundation is funding for Parkinson's research is Somerset Pharmaceuticals, the company that produces Eldepryl, or selegeline hydrochloride. Eldepryl, another FDA-approved drug, was found by the U.S. Pharmacological Conference to be contaminated with methamphetamine and a publicly unidentified neurotoxin. - Excerpt from The Idaho Observer

The Truth About Splenda
The truth is that Splenda is not natural and does not taste like sugar. The sweetness of Splenda derives from a chlorocarbon chemical that contains three atoms of chlorine in every one of its molecules. The manufacturer of this chlorinated compound named it sucralose. The improper use of “ose” inthe name creates the illusion that sucralose is natural like sucrose which is the precise name for table sugar. learn more

Splenda® Is It Safe Or Not?
Dr. Janet Starr Hull examines in detail, the entire process of manufacture of Splenda® , the artificial sweetener being hailed as a safe alternative to natural sugar. Studying even finer details of lesser known investigations conducted to establish safety of this product, Dr. Hull comes to the conclusion that Splenda® is not the perfect substitute for sugar as is made out to be. Dr. Hull painstakingly details disturbing research findings that have been glossed over or conveniently forgotten while trumpeting the goodness of sucralose. According to her the chemical cocktail involved in reorganizing the structure of sugar to make it a viable alternative for natural sugar could in fact do more harm than good.

The Potential Dangers of Sucralose (Splenda)
There's a new artificial sweetener on the block and it is already in a wide range of products (see the list), some even sold in health food stores and manufactured by nutritionally-oriented companies. The artificial sweetener sucralose, which is sold under the name Splenda™, is one of the up-and-coming "next generation" of high-intensity sugar substitutes. It is non-caloric and about 600 times sweeter than sucrose (white table sugar), although it can vary from 320 tp 1,000 times sweeter, depending on the food application. The white crystalline powder tastes like a lot like sugar, but is more intense in its sweetness.

Research in animals has shown that sucralose can cause many problems in rats, mice, and rabbits, such as:
Shrunken thymus glands (up to 40% shrinkage)
Enlarged liver and kidneys.
Atrophy of lymph follicles in the spleen and thymus
Increased cecal weight
Reduced growth rate
Decreased red blood cell count
Hyperplasia of the pelvis
Extension of the pregnancy period
Aborted pregnancy
Decreased fetal body weights and placental weights

By James Bowen, M.D.

In a simple word you would just as soon have DDT in your food as Splenda, because sucralose is a chlorocarbon. The chlorocarbons have long been famous for causing organ, genetic, and reproductive damage. It should be no surprise, therefore, that the testing of sucralose, even at less than the level demanded by FDA rules, reveals that it has been shown to cause up to 40%shrinkage of the thymus: A gland that is the very foundation of our immune system. It also causes swelling of the liver and kidneys, and CALCIFICATION of the kidney. more

Splenda Marketing Accused of False Advertising, Misleading Public
Many have questioned the accuracy of the marketing campaign for Splenda that reads: "Splenda No Calorie Sweetener is made from sugar, so it tastes like sugar." In fact, Johnson and Johnson's McNeil Nutritionals, maker of the artificial no-calorie sweetener Splenda, has been slapped with a number of lawsuits accusing the company of falsely advertising Splenda and deceiving buyers into believing it is a natural product. Lawsuits have been filed by:

* Individuals (three state consumer class action suits)
* The Sugar Association
* Merisant Worldwide Inc, maker of low-calorie sweetener Equal

Epidemic of Multiple Sclerosis and Systemic Lupus Related to Aspartame

Dr. H. J. Roberts, M.D., said in his first press conference that if something wasn't done about aspartame then in 5 or 10 years we would have a plague on our hands. Now Dr. Roberts has declared aspartame disease to be a world epidemic and is in the process of publishing the medicaltext on the world plague.

"In 2004 I began to experience a lot of joint swelling in my hands, shoulders, knees and ankles. That pain would simply jump around in my body without warning and I kept going to the doctor who concluded I had either strained a muscle or had a torn rotator cup. Eventually after CATS and MRIs showed no problems the doctor gave me a blood test and when it came back she said that I had Lupus. I was prescribed a series of medications that made me very ill. After researching more about lupus it occurred to me that I needed to find a doctor that specialized in autoimmune deficiencies. I found a doctor who specialized in autoimmune diseases and after a series of blood test this doctor told me I had RA, Rheumatoid Arthritis. She said that my RA factors were over 200 and started me on a methotrexate, and other RA combo drugs including, prednisone, cortisone shots and painkillers. The side effects of the medications were at times unbearable.

A friend of mine who at one time had stage four pancreatic cancer introduced me to Marine Phytoplankton and suggested that I talk to a friend of hers for more information. It was suggested that I began with 1 1/2 oz of Marine Phytoplankton a day and after 30 days I should see some change in my body. After being on so many over the counter drugs and prescribed medications I was a bit reluctant but decided to try it 3 days after purchasing it. After all, I really had nothing to lose. Within the first half hour of taking the Marine Phytoplankton I felt. The swelling had left my hands, completely (this is where the RA had settled). Each day I continued to take 1 1/2 oz of the Marine Phytoplankton and I have not looked back.

It has only been 30 days and I have not taken any medications for arthritis. I have been pain free and I have not had any joint swelling. This is truly a miracle for me and it is what I have been looking for. I am recommending it to everyone I know that has RA. I believe that Marine Phytoplankton is the all-natural product that is healing my body from the inside out. You must give it a try." T. W.

Aspartame and Multiple Sclerosis - Neurosurgeon's Warning - The Connection Between MS And Aspartame By Russell L. Blaylock, MD

Dr. Jerry Tennant, M.D. says that marine phytoplankton contains almost everything one needs to sustain life and to restore health by providing the raw materials to make new cells that function normally. Marine phytoplankton has been called "the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet". Containing a wide range of trace elements, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, enzymes and cellular materials, marine phytoplankton promotes and maintains optimum health by boosting and supporting all systems within the body. Its antioxidants and unique polysaccharides can halt the genetic mutations that can lead to cancer. Both high levels of saccharides and adaptogens increase energy and stamina by improving our ability to consume and use oxygen. Adaptogens also improve cardiovascular health by strengthening the heart and circulation. more about marine phytoplankton's healing power

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is widely believed to be an immune system disorder that causes the body’s own antibodies to attack the myelin sheath in the brain and the spinal cord causing inflammation and scaring. The myelin sheath is a fatty type wrapping that surrounds the nerve fibers throughout the nervous system of the body. The disease is progressive and slowly degenerates the entire central nervous system. The term Sclerosis actually means "to harden" and Multiple refers to "many locations" throughout the central nervous system. What herbs and other natural components may be effective with Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?

  • Transfer factors - Support immune function by suppressing or inducing immune response.
  • Glyconutrients Fisher Institute for Medical Research report that patients who added glyconutrients to their diet reported significant improvement in lupus symptoms. (Vol. 1 No. 1),
  • Essential Fatty Acids Found to be deficient in those with MS. Support immune and nervous systems.
  • Calcium and Magnesium (CalMag Powder For Quick Absorption) Helpful to maintain muscle strength and function as well as support the nervouse system.
  • Grape Seed Extract Support against free radicals that can have damaging effects on nervous system.
  • Vitamin C Helpful to support immune function and scavenge free radicals.
Aspartame Crisis Posed To World Environmental Conference

"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.

In the case of systemic lupus, we are finding it has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially in 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. " more

Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s own immune system attacks the skin, blood vessels, joints, and other tissues of the body. It is believed that there may be a virus that causes the development of antibodies, which then attacks good body tissues. Visual symptoms may include a butterfly shaped rash on the checks or the nose or in other locations on the body. Woman make up 90% of the people with Lupus and it is even more prevalent in Asian women

There are many case histories in homeopathic literature who have reported success with multiple sclerosis and lupus. Also, holistic doctors have had success with Transfer Factor to modulate the immune system in their autoimmune disorder cases.

Lupus: Alternative Therapies That Work
Moore suffered from lupus for 14 years. After taking control of her health care, though, and drawing on alternative therapies (usually called "complementary" therapies), she has "recovered." Books by lupus patients aren't unusual, but hers is the first to go into complementary medicine in detail. Nutrition and dietary supplements played major roles, Moore says, and naturopathy, traditional Chinese medicine, and mind-body medicine were in the mix, too.

Ms. Chester shares the personal discoveries behind her recovery, and a meditation on what it means for a body to be "attacking itself."

Dr. Russell Blaylock, a recently retired neurosurgeon, has been warning for years and has even authored a book "Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills". Blaylock says that Aspartame and Multiple Sclerosis are closely related. Unfortunately the Multiple Sclerosis society denies there is any connection between MS and Aspartame. The Society has chosen, according to Betty Martini, to hang on to industry funding rather than to warn its members. Blaylock explains the biological mechanism by which Aspartame circumvents the blood-brain-barrier and gets at the vital nervous tissues - the grey matter in our heads: The Connection Between MS And Aspartame

Water The Great Healer and Detoxifier! Water therapy has been used for centuries to heal the sick. Hydro- and hydrothermal therapy are traditional methods of treatment that have been used for the treatment of disease and injury by many cultures, including those of ancient Rome, China, and Japan. Water therapy has been around for centuries. The ancient Greeks took therapeutic baths. Water is an important ingredient in the traditional Chinese and Native American healing systems. more

F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. - "Every function inside the body is regulated by and depends on water. Water must be available to carry vital elements, oxygen, hormones, and chemical messengers to all parts of the body. Without sufficient water to wet all parts equally, some more remote parts of the body will not receive the vital elements that water supplies. Water is also needed to carry toxic waste away from the cells. In fact, there are at least 50 reasons why the body needs sufficient water on a regular, everyday basis. Without sufficient water to constantly wet all parts, your body's drought-management system kicks into action. The histamine-directed chemical messenger systems are activated to arrange a new, lower quota of water for the drought-stricken areas. When histamine and its subordinate "drought managers" come across pain-sensing nerves, they cause pain. This is what I discovered in my research that I mentioned earlier." Benefits of Alkaline, Ionized Water, by Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi, M.D.
Water has the ability to attract and accumulate bio-energy. It also stores an energy memory of harmful or helpful vibrations to which it was exposed in the past. Chlorinated tap water is polluted with non-biological chemicals and negative energy imprints. It is also devoid of bio-energy and so may be regarded as being badly polluted as well as 'dead'. Alkaline living water is regarded by a growing number of health care professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as a medical device in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases.

Matthew Silver, MD - "An associate in her early fifties who had suffered for many years from the toxic effects of chlorine poisoning from inhaling vapors from an over-chlorinated swimming pool. This had resulted in many severe health challenges including extreme chronic fatigue and breathing difficulty that kept her housebound and dependent on oxyn. Even minimal exertion led to extreme shortness of breath. After just three days of drinking glyconutrients, she reported that all of her symptoms improved dramatically and that she was able to leave her house without oxygen and work in her garden, which she had not been able to do in years." The sugars found on all Glyconutrients (saccharides) also address the workings of the brain and nervous system from memory and sleep to anxiety and depression.

Safe, toxin-free, Ionized, Energized, Drinking Water helps to naturally flush toxins and acidic waste from the body and is a powerful antioxidant. Ionized Water makes more oxygen available to our cells than distilled, reverse osmosis, filtered only, bottled or tap water and is the best possible drinking water. "Disease and early death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of purified water. Avoid it except in special circumstances." Zoltan P. Rona M.D

Overcoming The Sugar Blues and Getting Off Prozac
In addition to throwing off the body's homeostasis, excess sugar may result in a number of other significant consequences. Sugars increase our body's production of adrenaline by four times, which puts the body into a state of 'fight or flight' stress, without anything to fight or flee from , except the consumption of sugar. This stress reaction increases the production of both cholesterol and cortisone. Cortisone inhibits immune function.

02-01-1999- Japanese scientists have identified a form of vitamin B12 that protects against neurological disease and aging by a unique mechanism that differs from current therapies. Some of the disorders that may be preventable or treatable with this natural vitamin therapy, called methylcobalamin, include chronic fatigue syndrome, Parkinson's disease, peripheral neuropathies, Alzheimer's disease, muscular dystrophy and neurological aging. Americans have immediate access to this unique and new form of vitamin B12, and, unlike prescription drugs, it costs very little and is free of side effects.

Vitamin B12 is a general label for a group of essential biological compounds knows as cobalamins. The cobalamins are structurally related to hemoglobin in the blood, and a deficiency of vitamin B12 can cause anemia. The primary concern of conventional doctors is to maintain adequate cobalamin status to protect against anemia.

The most common form of vitamin B12 is called cyanocobalamin. However, over the last ten years, a number of central and peripheral neurological diseases have been linked to a deficiency of a very specific cobalamin, the methylcobalamin form, that is required to protect against neurological diseases and aging. The liver converts a small amount of cyanocobalamin into methylcobalamin within the body, but larger amounts of methylcobalamin are necessary to correct neurological defects and protect against aging.

Major Media Atttempting To Suppress Expose' on the Deadly Effects of Aspartame

"It's an old plot. We've seen it many times. A gigantic corporation contaminates the community, spreading deadly toxins. People are sick, children die, but the greedy poisoner remains undetected. At last a persistent reporter finds the source. Now denials begin, authorities side with the polluters, against the people. A smoke screen of propaganda and ridicule is raised so business and dying can continue as usual. Some mainstream media too often dependent on advertising from these corporations won't expose them, and would never allow a bright reporter to tell the story. Monsanto, Coke and Pepsi have fat checkbooks, so will the pride of true journalism in getting the facts to the people take a backseat to exposing them in the NutraSweet issue?"

"There is the Bressler Report, the FDA audit of the horror of the original studies that approved aspartame, the FDA's own report of 92 documented symptoms from coma to death triggered by aspartame, the damning CDC investigation and even the protest of the National Soft Drink Association, showing that Coke and Pepsi knew aspartame breaks down into a witches brew of toxins at 86 degrees before they ever put it in pop. They also knew it was not a diet product because it is a drug that makes you crave carbohydrates (last page of report) and misrepresented this to the public. If you want to get fat NutraSweet is where its at! I have no sympathy for the MS Society because they have been sent information for years including Dr. Roberts position paper MS or Aspartame Disease? and never uttered a word to warn the victims. In Atlanta at their walk-a-thon while Mission Possible gave out medical documentation on aspartame's ability to mimic MS and destroy the central nervous system they gave out Diet Coke." more...
