Do You Believe Aspartame is a Good Alternative?

I've read a ton of stuff on how bad Aspartame and "all" chemical sugar substitutes like Sucralose, Acesulfame, and Saccharin are. This article is from "LONGEVITY NEWS from Young Again Nutrients" that was sent to me by Jethro Tull. Please see what I recommend at the end of this article.

ASPARTAME: Mounting Evidence It May Be Responsible for Epidemics of Lupus and MS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ASPARTAME - THE SILENT KILLER
By Ron Harder, Nutritional Consultant

There is an epidemic across North America today of Multiple Sclerosis and Lupus. Most people do not understand why this epidemic is happening, and they do not know why these diseases are so rampant. I would like to share with you the main reason we are having this very serious problem.

Many people today use artificial sweeteners in their tea or coffee. They do this because the ads they see on TV tell them that sugar is bad for their health. This is absolutely true. Sugar is toxic to us, but, what most people use as a replacement for sugar is much more deadly.

I am talking about Aspartame. It is the cause of the epidemic that was mentioned above. Aspartame is an extremely toxic chemical that is produced by a chemical company called Monsanto.

Aspartame is being marketed around the world as a sugar substitute and is found in all diet soft drinks, such as Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi. It is also found in artificial sweeteners such as NutraSweet, Equal, and Spoonful; and it is used in many other products as a sugar replacement.

Aspartame is marketed as a diet product, but it is not a diet product at all. In fact, it will cause you to GAIN weight because it makes you crave carbohydrates.

Causing you to gain weight is only a very small part of what Aspartame does. Aspartame is a toxic chemical that changes the brain's chemistry. It can and does cause severe seizures. This chemical changes the dopamine level in the brain, and it is particularly deadly for anyone suffering from Parkinson's disease.

Aspartame is extremely poisonous, and here is why. One of the toxic ingredients of Aspartame is wood alcohol. When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in the Aspartame is converted to formaldehyde, and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis.

Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of poisons as Cyanide and Arsenic - which are very deadly toxins. The only difference is Formaldehyde kills quietly, and it takes a little longer. And, in the process of killing people, it causes all kinds of neurological problems.

There are 92 documented symptoms of Aspartame Poisoning leading to coma and death. The majority of these symptoms are neurological, because the Aspartame attacks and destroys the nervous system. Some of the symptoms of Aspartame Poisoning are covered below.

One of these symptoms is Lupus, which has become almost as rampant as Multiple Sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers.

When someone develops Lupus as a result of using Aspartame, they usually do not know that the Aspartame is the culprit. They then continue to use Aspartame, which aggravates the Lupus to such a degree that it sometimes becomes life threatening.

When people finally get off the Aspartame, the severity of the Lupus decreases.

It is generally believed that once you develop Lupus, you will have it for the rest of your life, but this is not so. Lupus can be defeated with some very special treatment.

Aspartame Poisoning is also very often diagnosed as Multiple Sclerosis. The methanol toxicity mimics Multiple Sclerosis, and therefore, people are being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when in fact they do not have it. Multiple Sclerosis is not a death sentence, where Methanol Toxicity usually is.

When those who suffer from Aspartame Poisoning stop using Aspartame, most of the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis disappear. There are many cases where someone's vision has returned, and even their hearing has returned.

We have a very serious problem here. More and more people who are heavy Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers are being diagnosed with MS.

This also applies to other diseases. If you are using Aspartame and you suffer from Fibromyalgia symptoms such as spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss, you probably do not have Fibromyalgia, you very likely have Aspartame Poisoning.

At the Conference of the American College of Physicians, doctors admitted that they did not know the cause of the epidemic in MS and Lupus. It is believed that the phenylalanine in the Aspartame breaks down the seizure threshold and depletes Serotonin, which causes manic depression, panic attacks, rage, and violence.

According to the Conference of the American College of Physicians, "We are talking about a plague of neurological diseases caused by this deadly poison".

Aspartame is especially deadly for diabetics. All physicians know what wood alcohol will do to a diabetic. There are many cases where physicians believe they have a patient with retinopathy, when in fact, the problem is caused by Aspartame. The Aspartame keeps the blood sugar level out of control, causing many patients to go into a coma. Unfortunately, many diabetics who have used Aspartame have died.

There are many recorded cases where diabetics have switched from Saccharin to an Aspartame product, and many of these people have eventually gone into a coma. Their physicians could not get the blood sugar levels under control. Thus, the patients
suffered acute memory loss, and eventually coma and death.

Two prominent Doctors, Dr. Blaylock and Dr. H. J. Roberts, have written books on Aspartame Poisoning. Dr. Blaylock's book is entitled: "EXCITOTOXINS: THE TASTE THAT KILLS". Dr. H.J. Roberts, diabetic specialist and world expert on Aspartame Poisoning, has written a book entitled "DEFENSE AGAINST
>ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE".

Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when Aspartame was first marketed and used. He said that his diabetic patients who used Aspartame presented memory loss, confusion, and severe vision loss". The methanol in the Aspartame converts to Formaldehyde in the retina of the eye, and causes people to go blind.

Memory loss is due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are neurotoxic without the other amino acids found in protein. Thus it goes past the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the neurons of the brain.

Dr. Roberts tells how Aspartame Poisoning is escalating Alzheimer's disease. Women of 30 years of age are being admitted that have developed Alzheimer's disease as a result of using Aspartame.

Aspartame Disease is partially the cause of what is behind some of the mystery of the Desert Storm health problems (Gulf War Syndrome). The burning tongue and other problems discussed in over 60 cases can be directly related to the consumption of an Aspartame product.

Several thousand pallets of diet drinks were shipped to the Desert Storm troops. (Remember that heat can liberate the methanol from the Aspartame at 86 degrees F). These diet drinks sat on pallets in the 120-degree F. Arabian sun for weeks at a time. The service men and women drank them all day long, and all of their symptoms are identical to Aspartame Poisoning.

According to Dr. Roberts, another serious problem is that consuming Aspartame during pregnancy can cause birth defects. When the Aspartame attacks the nervous system it does not allow the unborn child to develop properly.

Aspartame consumption has also been shown to lead to cancer.

xcel's recommendation: Use Stevia as an alternative sweetener. It made from leasve of the South American Stevia tree - dried and ground up. It's suppose to be like 50 times more sweeter than sugar.

I can second that, I remeber at a time with by dieting I would get the worse sweet tooth especially after carb free meals. so I would just open a packet and eat it pure. It definintly never gave me any releif like i wanted.

I just started drinking instant diet iced tea w/aspartame and maltodextrin as sugar substitutes. Use to drink milk instead but cutting way back on that. I hope that moderate use will not effect me negatively. Its always something...

I've read a lot about the negative effects of aspartame. I would try splenda, which is sweeter and actually is made from sugar, but doesnt have an effect on blood-sugar and zero cals. Aspartame is another example of money being more imortant than health. Many opposed allowing aspartame as a sweetener in foods, but the food industry snowballed the FDA and pushed it through. The FDA is wonderful huh? Can't use test wich my body already has in it, but I can put this foreign substance that has tons of detrimental effects.

well...

I try to avoid using sugar subsitutes too much, but I believe that infrequent use of aspartame or splenda or any other type is likely to have little to no long term impact on most people. Used occasionally or in moderation it's probably hard to find a correlation between disease and artificial sweetner use.

Splenda is the way to go, definitely. Not really artificial sweetner, but normally just 1 cal per packet. One thing the article didn't mention is that the "blue stuff" (aspertame) also turns into a tiny amount of lead in your body. However, I really don't think occasional minor consumption is likely to really do any major harm. Like MikeS said, its always something isn't it? (I wouldn't use the blue stuff in any quantity myself, tho.)

I try and stay away from all sweets except the occassional snikers bar. I have a friend who's dad got headaches all the time. Went to the doctor had all these tests done and did all this shit. He even quit smoking and still had these headaches. Finally pops asked his son and myself about our diets and stuff and we started reading labels and shit of the things that he was consuming. He was dribnking alot of pops and things with aspartame in it. He cut that shit out of his diet and hasn't had a single headache in over a year. I don't trust any of that shit. Sure some slips into my mouth evey once in awhile, but for the most part I try and avoid all of that shit! Cause that's exactly what that is.
