Aspartame is Poison! Don't use it!

Don't use Aspartame/Nutrasweet! There are much safer

I have a friend from church who has been under medical care for
years of dibilitating migrain headaches usually 1 per week, even
when controlled by medication, and daily headaches not defined
as migrain. He let me know he was a heavy diet soda drinker so
I let him know about the evidence about the dangers of NutraSweet
(see below). His last report to me last week, was 12 weeks
after he stopped the NutraSweet usage. He has had no migrains
in those 12 weeks and has had NO other headaches. Anecdotal evidence?
The sugarless versions of Dentyne and Bubble Yum DO NOT use aspartame/Nutrasweet!.
Carefree Sugarless Gum originally did not have aspartame/Nutrasweet
and I never had a problem, but sometime around 1996 they switched
from Sorbitol & Saccharin to aspartame/Nutrasweet. Even before
I realized they had switched I was noticing "scintillations",
or blinking zig-zag lines, in my eyes within 1 hour of chewing
the newly formulated gum. These scintillations are the classic
precursory indicator of an impending Migraine or Cluster Headache.
I noticed this on several occasions, so I quit using Carefree
and have never had scintillations or headaches since.
We need to be on the lookout for aspartame/Nutrasweet Free
The science is clear, the clinicals were performed improperly,
NutraSweet is being mis-used, it was approved fraudulently by
the FDA who refuses to revisit the evidence, several groups protested
at the time against the approval, but Searle/Monsanto money prevailed.
The NutraSweet revenues have been estimated in the trillions worldwide.
Too bad for the dumb masses. .
Here are the highlights:
- Aspartame/Nutrasweet is not very sweet in itself, that may
be why Equal puts Dextrose (sugar) and maltodextrin as the first
ingredients, so that it tastes sweet. Aspartame/Nutrasweet is
a brain drug that stimulates your brain so you think
that the food you're eating tastes sweet. If you pay attention
you'll notice that when using Aspartame/Nutrasweet, everything
you eat at the same time also tastes sweet! This may be
why Aspartame/Nutrasweet causes you to crave carbohydrates. Hence,
you won't lose weight using it.
BTW, cyclamates got pulled off the market in the 70's in the
US (but not Canada or the rest of the world) because the sugar
industry saw too much of their market disappear.
- Aspartame/Nutrasweet (aspartylphenylalanine-methyl-ester)
breaks down to its poison
constituents at 86 degrees (Aspartic Acid 40%, Phenylalanine
50%, and Methanol
10%). Remember your stomach is at 98.6 degrees! Therefore you
should never use Aspartame/Nutrasweet in hot beverages or cooked
foods such as Jello. How the FDA allows this remains a mystery.
There is mounting evidence that the "Burning Mouth Syndrome"
experienced by the Desert Storm troops was actually Methanol
poisoning from the Diet Coke they drank lots of, after being
exposed to desert temperatures.
- Aspartame/Nutrasweet's 10% Methanol
appears in the body quickly and is the same alcohol (wood
alcohol also in lacquer thinner), that your mother correctly
warned you could make you blind. Many skid-row alcoholics had
major problems with this cheap but deadly form of alcohol.
- Aspartame/Nutrasweet's 40% Aspartic Acid is an "excitotoxin" in the brain
and excites neurons to death, i.e. it kills brain cells and causes
other nerve damage.
- Aspartame/Nutrasweet triggers Migraine
Headaches This even happened to me!. The Usenet
is filled with posts by people who have pinned their migraines
down to aspartame/Nutrasweet consumption.
- Aspartame/Nutrasweet's breakdown products attack the bodies
tissues and create Formaldehyde
which builds up in the tissues forever. Remember the smelly,
eye watering fumes from the frogs you dissected in school? They
were preserved with Formaldehyde! Formaldehyde is thought to
- The American Bottlers Association did not want the FDA to
approve Aspartame/Nutrasweet because of what the test report
showed. But the FDA
approved it anyway!
- Airline pilots stay away from Aspartame/Nutrasweet because
they are well aware of the documented
- Aspartame/Nutrasweet also breaks down to diketopiperazine
[DKP] which is proven to cause Brain
Tumors! Brain Tumors used to be rare. Several of the rats
in the original study formed brain tumors during their Aspartame/Nutrasweet
exposure. The researchers surgically removed the tumors and returned
the rats to the study and discounted
