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.
