Aspartame is a Neurotoxin

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 same poison used by fire ants to sting and kill their victims. Brain tumors (lately surgeons have found high levels of aspartame in tumors removed from patients) , escalates diabetes symptoms and this methanol toxic condition in the human body can mimic multiple sclerosis.

Aspartame is manufactured by the NutraSweet Corporation, a subsidiary of Monsanto, who are fully aware of the dangers of their product. However, as Monsanto also funds the American Diabetics and Dietetic Associations, the United States Congress, and the Conference of the American College of Physicians, there is a conspiracy of silence with regard to the dangers of this artificial sweetener, which is contained in over 5,000 sugar-free products sold under the following brand names:

Neotame, Nutrasweet, Nutrisweet, Aspertame, Kelco, Benevia, Equal, Spoonful, Diet Sodas, Pepsi Light and Max, Crystal Light, Sucralose, Sunette, Sweet One, Splenda, Canderel, Chuker, Misura, Manugel, Keltrol, Kelcogel, Nutrifos, Stabil-9, Lewn-Lite, Spoonful.

The American Dietetic Association takes money from the food industry to endorse their products. therefore, they cannot criticize any additives or tell about their link to Monsanto. Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, said, “The ingredients stimulate the neurons of the brain to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees”, and has written a book entitled Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills. As a diabetic specialist and world expert on aspartame poisoning, he’s also written a book entitled Defense Against Alzheimer’s Disease about how aspartame poisoning is escalating Alzheimer’s; today women as young as 30 are being treated for Alzheimer’s. He realized what was happening when aspartame was first marketed and said diabetic patients presented symptoms of memory loss, confusion, and severe vision loss.

In Desert Storm several thousand pallets of diet drinks were shipped to the troops in the desert where they sat in the 120 degree F desert sun for weeks (remember at 86 degrees F methanol poison is released). The symptoms of Desert Storm Syndrome match those of aspartame disease.

Symptoms of aspartame disease:  spasms, shooting pains, burning tongue, cramps, vertigo, numbness in the legs, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, blindness and memory loss, severe seizures, panic attacks, rage and violence, severe memory loss, coma, escalates Alzheimer’s disease, birth defects (such as mental retardation), brain tumors (lately surgeons have found high levels of aspartame in tumors removed from patients) , escalates diabetes symptoms.

complex causes and effects

Even with cleaner water and communities, and new and improved medicines, people over the past century have been inflicted with a number of various kinds of illnesses. There are four main types of disease:  pathogenic, deficiency, hereditary, and physiological disease. A treatment attempts to improve or remove a problem, but treatments may not produce permanent cures. Cures are a subset of treatments that either reverse it completely, or end medical problems permanently. Many diseases that cannot be completely cured are still treatable.

Acute describes the sudden onsight of an illness requiring short term care considered either severe or generally mild. Nearly one in two Americans (133 million) has a chronic medical condition of one kind or another, and chronic illnesses cause about 70% of deaths in the U.S. and take up 3/4ths of the costs yearly. Chronicity is usually applied to a condition that lasts more than three months requiring long term care management for effective treatment many of which aren’t actually disabled as their medical conditions do not impair normal activities to that degree.

To name a few; asthma, allergies, autism, diabetes, epilepsy, hepatitis, arthritis, cardiovascular, lupis, ms, hiv, human parvo, cancer, and rheumatism. The causes of these are always the same, such as either co-incidental, or genetic and some times considered environmental or unknown. With as much funding that’s been poured into the fields of medical science and research over the past fifty years, and since it has grown by leaps and bounds, it seems astonishingly untrue that so little knowledge in regard to today’s chronic illnesses has been obtained. This begs the question by the masses, how can this be so?

Etiological discovery in medicine has a history in Robert Koch’s demonstration that the tubercle bacillus causes the disease tuberculosis, Cacillus anthracis causes anthrax and so on as summarized in his postulates. But proof of causation in infectious diseases is limited to individual cases that provide experimental evidence of etiology; greek for ‘giving a reason for and cause’. Contiguity postulates that cause and effect must be in spatial contact or connected by a chain of intermediate things in contact.” For ex.: People who can’t metabolize a drug will require a much lower dose than is recommended by the manufacturer, if any at all, and those who metabolize it quickly may require a higher dose. Also, people without the enzyme to activate them, some drugs such as codeine, will not be effective. People who are poor metabolizers of a drug may overdose while taking less than the recommended dose.

Metabolism is the set of chemical reactions that happen in living organisms to maintain life . These processes allow organisms to grow and reproduce, maintain their structures, and respond to their environments. The chemical reactions of metabolism are organized into metabolic pathways, in which one chemical is transformed through a series of steps into another chemical, by a sequence of enzymes that are crucial for the reactions to produce energy. Enzymes act as the catalyst in their reaction with others and release energy quick and efficiently, as well as allow the regulation of metabolic pathways in response to changes. Poisons cause disturbances usually by chemical reaction or other activity on the molecular level and are determined by the metabolism.

Because the main cause is not always obvious, it is important to consider the significance of each cause very carefully and to consider possible alternatives to it. An immediate cause closely precedes an effect and therefore is relatively easy to recognize. A remote cause takes place further in the past and is less obvious. It’s recommended to assess all possible contributing factors rather than just the most obvious. To not inspect the remote as well as the immediate causes can often result in an oversimplified and illogical conclusion.
