Aspartame is actually excrement of genetically modified E. coli, and changed its name to AminoSweet

OP, aspartame was the reason she had her gallbladder removed?

Thats unfortunate, removing the gallbladder is probably one of the worst things you can do for your weight and overall health. It could have been fixed with diet modification and some cleansing herbs.

Re: Thanks GLP, because of an article here, my wife is not sick anymore - Aspartame Poisoning
I don't really think she deserved to be sick since 2003 but I want to answer your question for the benefit of others. Every doctor and specialist through their hands in the air, and did not have a clue. Not one. I guess that should be the first sign. If the doctors don't have a clue, look at what you are ingesting.



Wow, see i tell ya all, people get what they deserve. i guess she should feel lucky to still be alive.
here's another question, with all the doctors she saw, did any of them tag ingestion of a toxic chemical as the cause of her problems?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1029269



Next thing she needs to do is taper off all that caffeine. If she doesnt think shes hooked on that-have her go 24 hours without it. You dont realize how hard core it is, until you detox from it. Start by tapering off-although I quit caffeine cold turkey, felt like shit for a month, then felt better than I ever did in my life.

Re: Thanks GLP, because of an article here, my wife is not sick anymore - Aspartame Poisoning
I don't have the answer on that. She told me this morning that she loved her equal. But I didn't know that she just started drinking it before she met me. I assumed she had been drinking it longer. I will go with your intelligent design thought though. Thanks!


OP, on top of poisoning herself, you said she lost weight after finally eliminating equal from her diet. how could a person continue using a so called diet aid, when they are gaining weight?
it may be harsh to hear people get what they deserve, but it is so true. playing a victim does no one any good.
it was intelligent design that saved your wife from herself. it was intelligent design that dictated sickness from poison to force a change that may well have ended her life early.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1029269



Its because Aspertame tricks the brain receptors into believing it has received sugar based on its sweetness. As a result, the body's glucose/insulin production is all fucked up, the body doesnt convert food to glucose believing it doesnt need to-hence, people actually GAIN weight.

Just look at all the obese people and their "diet" foods, THATS why the fat epidemic we all see.

Re: Thanks GLP, because of an article here, my wife is not sick anymore - Aspartame Poisoning
I did an assignment about this;
Not surprisingly, aspartames manufacturers are keen to refer to the stack of evidence to say its safe. Less keen are they, however, for you to know about the pile of evidence and reports that says quite the opposite.
there is enormous disparity in the published results of industry funded and non-industry funded research: one on-line review reveals that while 100 per cent of industry funded studies proclaim aspartame to be benign, more than 90 per cent of independent studies and reports in the scientific literature say otherwise.The battle rages on as to whether the artificial sweetener aspartame actually causes migraine headaches. The makers of NutraSweet staunchly deny any such correlation, pointing to a Duke University study they say completely discounts any such possibility. They usually neglect to mention that they funded the study, which consisted of a one day dosage of aspartame or placebo to migraine sufferers. The results showed no statistical difference between the two groups' incidence of headache that day, and the aspartame backers pronounced the idea of aspartame causing headaches to be thus disproved. The FDA accepted the study as conclusive proof, and has since maintained that there is no evidence to support the theory that aspartame is in any way detrimental to humans. The tradition of the FDA backing aspartame against all opponents started in 1981 when President Reagan took office. Reagan had close ties with Searle drug company which manufactured the additive, and he fired the FDA commissioner who had been blocking the approval, then appointing Dr Arthur Hayes to the position. A Board of Inquiry convened and recommended continuing to deny approval, citing the incidence of seizures and brain tumors in laboratory animals. Hayes approved the additive against the Board's recommendation, and subsequently left the FDA for a position with Searle's public relations firm.
Aspartame accounts for 75% of ALL complaints to the FDA for a food additive - with even MSG running a poor second. Aspartame has been reported in some studies to contain a carcinogen (cancer causing substance) and is suspected by many scientists of causing problems ranging from brain tumors to epilepsy. A thirteen-week, double-blind, randomized cross-over study was conducted in 1988 by S M Koehler and the results were staggering. Participants were given doses of aspartame or placebo, and the results from the test indicated that at least 50% of the subjects given aspartame had increasing frequency and duration of migraines, while those on placebo had decreased attacks. Several other double blind studies were conducted, and with the exception of the one paid for by NutraSweet, they all indicated that aspartame did indeed cause worsening of migraines. In all studies conducted on aspartame that were funded by NutraSweet, aspartame was found to be completely innocent of causing any adverse effects. Other privately funded studies showed aspartame to be in fact responsible for headaches and other health problems in over 80% of tests, with the majority of the ones still showing inconclusive results being funded by the FDA, which has been accused of turning a blind eye to the dangers of aspartame since it was approved. In a very interesting twist, two patients studied by Newman and Lipton experienced worsening of migraine upon administration of rezatriptan, a medication that normally gave them relief. On examination, the medication was actually of a new form in a dissolvable wafer rather than the normal capsule - and the wafer was sweetened with aspartame. Both patients had formerly identified aspartame as a migraine trigger. They had no idea that the rezatriptan medication in the wafer form contained the sweetener, having just been given the samples for ease of dosing in case of migraine onset at work or school. The multiple symptoms of aspartame sensitivity don't stop with migraines, though headaches are one of the top three complaints. Excessive fatigue, dizziness, fainting spells and seizures are common, as well as depression which can reach suicidal proportions. Opponents of the food additive point to the many studies reporting health problems connected with aspartame, in which the problems disappeared after aspartame was removed from the patient's diet. Thousands more have testified to aspartame's negative influence on their health. On the other hand some well-respected scientists support the FDA view that aspartame is harmless. Aspartame breaks down into several breakdown products including aspartic acid, phenylalanine, methanol, formaldehyde and formic acid. According to Wikipedia there is controversy surrounding the rate of breakdown into these various products and the effects that they have on those that consume aspartame-sweetened foods. Although phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that occurs naturally, it is a health hazard to those born with phenylketonuria (PKU), a rare inherited disease that prevents phenylalanine from being properly metabolized. Since individuals with PKU need to take account of aspartame as an additional source of phenylalanine, foods containing aspartame must carry warning labels. However, as this is a rare condition, and sufferers know they need to avoid the substance, that isn't the most worrying health concern. The main suspect breakdown product in aspartame is methanol, which breaks down into formaldehyde, highly toxic and classified as a probable human carcinogen by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Formaldehyde is used in embalming, glue, plywood, plastics, carpets and many other products. Because of toxicity concerns the EU has considered imposing a complete ban on its use even for embalming.
Amongst many other controversial claims and studies against sweeteners, more recent research suggests that they may cause weight gain!
Just googling artificial sweeteners on google scholar brings up a whole load of studies and articles by academics

Beyond one's own mind there is no dazzling light to come shining in from outside to wake one up. If one recognizes one's own intrinsic State as pure from the beginning and only temporarily obscured by impurities, and if one maintains the presence of this recognition without becoming distracted, then all the impurities dissolve. This is the essence of the Path-namkhai norbu.

Why is there a legend about the descent of Christ into hell? The Teacher addressed the lower strata of the astral world, saying: �Why, by cherishing earthly thoughts, bind oneself eternally to Earth?� And many revolted in spirit and rose higher.

Sounds like some major nasty shite. Last thing to go is the diet 7ups. Since she is now losing weight, normal 7up will be OK. I'm glad your kids are better!


Not just drinking.

I used to give my kids dental chewing gum (extra) as it was recommended by the dentist

My kids were suffering a whole range of health issues, and it took a while to work out what it was.

Chewing it, it goes straight to the brain, which is worse than drinking it.

Look at the ingredients I say. I am not sure I trust dentists so mush these days either.

drinking soda especially coke will make your body acidic; check out pH charts.
To compensate (and prevent cancer):

Re: Thanks GLP, because of an article here, my wife is not sick anymore - Aspartame Poisoning
I have fun on this doom site but I need to share a story. Since my daughter was born 7 years ago my wife has been really sick most every weekend. The day began and ended on the toilet for her and she had been to every doctor around, every specialist.

No one knew what was wrong with her, and she had pretty much accepted that there was something wrong with her that would not be fixed. Her gallbladder was removed and that did not help.

And then a couple of weeks ago after reading an article here on GLP we agreed to stop the Equal in the coffee. She loves equal, to the tune of 20 packs a day in her coffee. We swapped that for sugar and she told me last night that the problems are gone after a couple of weeks, and she is starting to lose weight.

WOW! Thanks OP and everyone else for the great info.

I quit smoking about 3 years ago, and one of the tips the Dr. gave me was to chew gum when I craved a cigarette. I got hooking on chewing the gum, so I have been chewing gum (almost chain-chewing at times) for three years on a daily basis.

I have been finding that I, of course, gained weight, (I thought it was from quitting smoking), but I also have been feeling more and more tired and have digestive problems. I have migraines and have been fuzzy headed and forgetful, and it's been getting alot worse.

I never associated the symtoms with the gum!!!

I will defintly stop chewing gum with aspartame in it. And I will be checking for it in other products as well.

I never knew!!!

I found an issue with Stevia/Truvia as well.
[link to globalskywatch.com]

Can anyone verify this? I don't have as much information on truvia/stevia,

Sarah Vaughter has a great website with some truly eye-opening information! Here is an article showing the real story about Truvia, and what the FDA doesn't want YOU to know about!


"We are being hoodwinked again by the FDA and Big Business - the Coca Cola Company, feeling the heat of an increasing consumer rebellion against carcinogenic sweeteners like Aspartame, managed to beg, bribe and bully the FDA into approving Truvia(TM), also-known-as Rebiana.

Truvia has gotten GRAS ("generally regarded as safe") status - but not Stevia. First of all, it took chutspa to call it "Truvia", as if Stevia somehow isn't the real thing!

Have you tried the all natural 0 calorie sweetener Truvia as a replacement?
