I read about the deadly effects of Nutrasweet (Aspartame) which is used
in a lot of diet drinks and foods. It appears that it could be deadly
especially to diabetics in particular. If you know someone who is a
diabetic, you may want to share the following message.
There are a lot of background scientific information available from Betty
Martini and anyone interested can get it by e-mail using her
auto-responder (automatic retrieval).

I am posting this here because I think this is a very serious health risk
and am interested in everyone's health.

WARNING! NutraSweet is A Neurotoxin
The THALIDOMIDE of the 90's is ASPARTAME otherwise known as EQUAL, NUTRASWEET
or SPOONFUL. In May, 1992 Flying Safety Magazine explained the dangers:
In pregnancy the effects of aspartame can be passed directly on to the fetus,
even in very small doses. Some people have suffered aspartame related
disorders with doses as small as that carried in a single stick of chewing
gum. This could mean 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.
Some pilots have experienced grand mal seizures in the cockpits of commercial
airline flights and have lost medical certification to fly, with it their
careers. The FDA has received more than 10,000 consumer complaints on
NutraPoison. That's 80 % of all complaints about food additives, yet they
remain comatose and have done nothing to alert the American public who assume
that since it's so highly advertised, it must be safe as mother's milk. The
FDA consistently approves killer drugs as the February '94 OMNI MAGAZINE
If you are using aspartame and have headaches, depression, slurred speech,
loss of memory, fibromyalgia type symptoms, loss of sensation in lower legs
or shooting pains, loss of eqilibrium, vertigo, anxiety attacks, chronic
fatigue, vision loss, floaters, retinal detachment, seizures, heart
palpitations, etc. you have ASPARTAME DISEASE! Many physicians are
diagnosing multiple sclerosis when in reality it is methanol toxicity which
mimics MS. Get off this dangerous drug right away. MS is not a death
sentence, but methanol toxicity is!
51% of FDA approved drugs have serious risks and could cause adverse
reactions that lead to severe or permanent disability or death. The Center
for Disease Control, Johns Hopkins University, and the New Jersey School of
Medicine estimate that 80-120,000 Americans are killed by prescription drugs
every year. That this atrocious holocaust persists has everything to do with
money and nothing to do with public health. Monsanto reaps $2 billion/year
from the Aspartame toxic bonanza. This can buy a lot of bureaucrats! Does
FDA mean Fatal Drugs Allowed? The FDA works for industry, not citizens. FDA
head Arthur Hayes overruled his own board of inquiry to approve it then went
to work for their public relations firm. Federal attorney Sam Skinner was
assigned to prosecute Searle for fraudulent tests in their application, but
switched sides and went to work for Searle's lawyers and the case died when
the statute of limitations ran out.
Honest FDA toxicologist, the late Dr. Adrian Gross, wrote to Senator Howard
Metzenbaum: "The views of the FDA's Center for Food Safety read like a script
written for Abbott & Costello in the sense of their having perceptions
inside-out and upside-down ... FDA may have gone through the motions ... such
a "process" or DANCE represented a farce and a mockery."
Aspartame is a molecule composed of three components: aspartic acid,
phenylalanine and methanol. Once ingested the methanol, wood alcohol that
has killed or blinded thousands of skid row drunks, converts into
formaldehyde and formic (Ant Sting Poison). Formaldehyde, a deadly
neurotoxin, is common embalming fluid, a Class A Carcinogen. Phenylalanine
is also neurotoxic when unaccompanied by the other amino acids in proteins.
Aspartic acid causes brain lesions in neuroendocrine disorders in
experimental animals. There are 92 documented symptoms including:
Headaches Numbness Fatigue Blurred vision Heart palpitations Memory
loss Dizziness Muscle spasms Weight gain Irritability Anxiety attacks Vertigo
Seizures Rashes Blindness Tachycardia Tinnitus Joint pain Nausea
Depression Hearing loss Slurred speech Loss of taste Insomnia
NutraSweet is in 5,000 foods and on every restaurant table for the same
reasons tobacco is everywhere: Greed, Addiction and Profit! The NutraSweet
Company and sister Searle whose chemists discovered asp e while testing an
ulcer drug are owned by Monsanto. If you're taking other medicine, consider
possible reactions you may have. In 1969 Searle approached Dr. Harry Waisman
to study the effects of aspartame on primates. Seven infant monkeys were fed
the chemical in milk. One died after 300 days, 5 others had Grand Mal
seizures. Searle deleted these findings when they submitted this study to
the FDA! The best way to understand NutraSweet is to think of it as a minute
dose of nerve gas that eradicates brain and nerve functions.
SOME DISEASES TRIGGERED BY ASPARTAME:
Brain tumors and other cancers Multiple
sclerosis Epilepsy Fibromyalgia Graves Disease Chronic fatigue
syndrome Epstein Barr Parkinson's Alzheimer's Diabetes Mental
retardation Lymphoma Birth defects Systemic Lupus Death!
Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology surveyed 80 people who
suffered brain seizures after eating or drinking products with Aspartame.
Said the Community Nutrition Institute: "These 80 cases meets the FDA's own
definition of an imminent hazard to the public health, which requires the FDA
to expeditiously remove a product from the market".
America is seeing a tremendous increase in seizures. Phenylalanine in
Aspartame lowers the seizure threshold in the brain and blocks serotonin
production. Today our nation is swept by a rage of violence. Researchers
attribute this is part to low brain serotonin levels inducing depression,
rage and paranoia. So President Clinton, Diet Coke in hand, programs
billions of $'s to buy penitentiaries for the paranoid.
Fetal tissue cannot tolerate methanol , and Dr. James Bowen calls NutraSweet
instant birth control. The fetal placenta can concentrate phenylalanine and
cause mental retardation. Aspartame tests on animals produced brain and
mammary tumors. No wonder breast cancer is exponentiating! During Operation
Desert Storm truckloads of diet drinks cooked in the Arabian sun and at 86
degrees Aspartame liberates methanol in the can! Thousands of service men
and women returned home with chronic fatigue syndrome and weird toxic
On July 28, 1983 the National Soft Drink Association drafted a 30 page
protest questioning the safety of Aspartame in soft drinks. Then they found
weight-conscious Americans would sip soda all day if it was sugarless, so
they forgot their objections: nor did they tell us that Aspartame makes you
crave carbohydrates and so you gain weight. The formaldehyde stores in fat
cells, particularly on the hips and thighs. Drink diet soda, get fat now,
and later develop seizures, diabetes, blindness, Epstein Barr, MS depression
Similarly, the American Diabetic Association, which receives megafunds from
NutraSweet ignored a 1987 abstract submitted by Dr. H. J. Roberts (world
expert on Aspartame and diabetic specialist) summarizing 58 diabetic
aspartame reactors. He says "I now advise ALL patients with diabetes and
hypoglycemia to avoid Aspartame products." Russell Blaylock, M.D.,
Neurosurgeon in his book: EXCITOTOXINS-THE TASTE THAT KILLS says Aspartame
may trigger clinical diabetes! He says that excitotoxins which can be found
in such ingredients as NutraSweet literally stimulate neurons to death,
causing brain damage of varying degrees. Health Press: 1-800-643-2665.
Also, "What really concerns me about aspartame is its association with brain
tumors as well as pancreatic, uterine and ovarian tumors ... and that so many
develop an Alzheimer's-like syndrome with prolonged exposure."
NutraSweet/Equal/Spoonful are the deadliest toxins in our society because of
their ubiquitous presence in thousands of foods, even children's vitamins,
medicines, Kool Aid and Jell-O and on every restaurant table. We're dosed
with millions of pounds every year! This warning should be on every
Aspartame/NutraSweet(/Equal/Spoonful product: CHEMICAL POISON: KEEP OUT OF
REACH OF HUMANS! GENOCIDAL!
