Re: Thanks GLP, because of an article here, my wife is not sick anymore - Aspartame Poisoning
I normally NEVER consume aspartame, but while at my mom's doing laundry a few months back, I was thirsty and had some of that powder mixer lemonade drink with it, and for a few days after that I had these horrid cramps in my thighs.... NEVER AGAIN, it is poison and my body rejected it as such!

Aspartame has been known to cause headaches, nausea, vision problems, seizures and cancer in its users.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1029269


Oh you are just getting warm.

ASPARTAME may cause Brain tumors, including brain cancer, Birth defects, breast cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, and malignant tumors, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, lupus, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue, nausea, vertigo, anxiety attacks, migraines, arthritis, asthma, insomnia, memory loss, convulsions, vomiting, chronic fatigue, among other problems; emotional problems, Epilepsy/seizures, Migraines, headaches, numbness, hearing loss, tinnitus, blindness, blurred vision, stomach disorders, heart disease, kidney problems and weight gain.

"In 1974 the FDA approved aspartame for its use in dry foods. However the FDA approval was rescinded within six months because of toxic reactions and widespread concerns by a number of scientists. These scientists knew that aspartame was a lethal poison! In fact, in a 1996 report compiled from 10,000 consumer complaints obtained during the pre-marketing testing period, the FDA listed 92 aspartame-related symptoms, ranging from seizures to death!" Gary Kohls MD

“Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD), which researchers believe is heavily associated with aspartame consumption, is a leading cause of death which, according to the CDC, killed 460,000 Americans in 1999 and the numbers keep rising.” Doctor Rima E. Laibow

"So-called "diet" drinks do nothing to foster weight loss. In fact, the evidence clearly shows that they increase weight. How might that happen? When you drink something that tastes sweet, your pancreas responds by making insulin in preparation for a natural load of sugar. No sugar comes. So your blood sugar drops and you get hungry. You eat more and gain weight. Furthermore, "diet drinks" are loaded with aspartame. Aspartame is 10% methanol, a horrible neurotoxin. Aspartame causes a large number of neurological abnormalities. I consulted with my own dentist today for his take on it. He would prefer his patients to drink sodas containing sugar rather than the poison. At least your body recognizes sugar, even if not good for you. Aspartame and other sweetening chemicals are foreign to your body." Doctor Robert Rowen MD, Note we need not choose the bad in preference to the worst, reject BOTH poisons

“This glutamate removal mechanism is critical to brain protection. Additionally, mercury in very low concentrations increases glutamate release, primarily by stimulating the brain’s immune cell, the microglia. Chronic microglial activation, as seen with mercury exposure, has been linked to neurodegenerative diseases. Mercury, among all the metals tested, was the only one shown to block the removal of excess glutamate from the nervous system. By paralyzing the glutamate removal system, mercury triggers chronic excitotoxicity - that is chronic destruction of the nervous system. One of the most common food additives, MSG (monosodium glutamate), has expanded greatly in use, doubling every decade since 1948. Aspartic acid is one half of the now ubiquitous sweetener aspartame (NutraSweet®), which is the basis of diet desserts, low-calorie drinks, chewing gum, etc. Both of these food additives spell danger for our children.” Doctor Russell Blaylock

"When an excess of food-borne excitotoxins, such as MSG, hydrolyzed protein soy protein isolate and concentrate, natural flavoring, sodium caseinate and aspartate from aspartame, are consumed, heart glutamate receptors are over-stimulated, producing cardiac arrhythmias. When magnesium stores are low, as we see in athletes, the glutamate receptors are so sensitive that even low levels of these excitotoxins can result in cardiac arrhythmias and death.” Doctor Russell Blaylock MD

"If you’re consuming a food or beverage created in a lab instead of by nature, you can be assured your body doesn’t recognize it. This opens the door to short-term and long-lasting health problems for you and your family.” Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

"Beyond a shadow of a doubt aspartame triggers brain tumors and therefore by allowing aspartame to be placed on the market the FDA has violated the Delaney Amendment which forbids putting anything in food that is a known to cause cancer." Doctor M. Adrian Gross Senior FDA Toxicologist

Cognitive dysfunction is one of the tell tale signs of aspartame poisoning. memory loss etc..

Pure poison. DO NOT ingest it it is NOT safe in any amount.

Dangers of Aspartame Poisoning

After more than twenty years of aspartame use, the number of its victims is rapidly piling up, and people are figuring out for themselves that aspartame is at the root of their health problems. Patients are teaching their doctors about this nutritional peril, and they are healing themselves with little to no support from traditional medicine.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1123678


Michael Fox, Star of Spin City, Family Ties and many movies, suffers from Parkinson's Disease and once asked how a 30 year old man would get this old man's disease. Michael Fox has also been a Diet Pepsi spokesman and informants say he is addicted drinking many a day. Aspartame/NutraSweet that is in Diet Pepsi is a neurotoxin that triggers neurodegenerative diseases, and can precipitate Parkinson's. Fox has been going downhill because of the wild movements and writhing he's been suffering. He is unable to control his body. Aspartame, in reality a drug, also interacts with other drugs and changes the dopamine of the brain. There is no way for Michael to improve until someone gets him off the Diet Pepsi.

Dr. James Bowen says: "Many NutraSweet victims report parkinsonian symptoms. This should be no surprise because every biochemical component of the aspartame molecule is implicated in producing Parkinsonian structural damage and creating a biochemical basis for parkinsonian symptoms. Aspartame is a source of methanol alcohol. Experts in neurodegenerative disease from alcoholism recognize that methyl alcohol is the component of beverage alcohol that causes neurodegenerative disease in Parkinson's Disease in alcoholics. Beverage alcohol is grain alcohol or methyl alcohol. However, methyl alcohol is also present in very small amounts, although present only in trace amounts in alcoholic beverages. It is the factor that produces the neurodegeneration. Methyl alcohol accomplishes this even though the ethyl alcohol serves as a protective factor. Aspartame on the other hand affords no such protection and the structural components of the molecule are so arranged that the methyl alcohol from aspartame is probably 500 to 5000 times more active in producing toxicity than it would be alone.

Next thing your wife should give up is sugar in the coffee, she will feel even better.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1122877


Use honey (great in coffee) or stevia (a plant that is very sweet). Honey is superb stuff, but don't buy national brands(some are cutting it with high fructose corn syrup), go to a health food store and get the real stuff, know the source, and there's a wide range of tastes to suit everyone's palate. Honey is great, it's one of the oldest foods humans ever consumed, gotta be a reason for that.

Aspartame is odious stuff, google it and read some of the articles, you will puke. After I found out about it, I stopped all chewing gum, all soda pop (except gingerale), and nothing with any sweetener added at all, just to be on the safe side, and all candy (not that I ever indulged much, but once in awhile), now I only buy high-cocoa (75%+) natural chocolate and eat only a wee bit of it. I get my sweets from fruit now, at least I know that's REAL.

I'd bet real money that the big drug co's have something to do with the manufacture of these "sweeteners" - gotta create some systemic illnesses so they can do massive drug trials to sell us a cure to a problem they created in the first place.

That's where I really started to "wake up" - with the food and what was in it, and therefore getting into ME. It wasn't too hard to change once I'd done some reading. It's a nice little treadmill of cash they have worked out, disgusting to anyone who still has spirit. Do some research, you'll see. You'll wish you hadn't, but you won't be able to forget about it, especially if you suffer from lupus, fibromyalgia, any sort of systemic illness - hell, even rheumatoid arthritis....

You'll never look at a deep-fried GM corn tortilla chip the same way EVER. Trust me.

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

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


Seriously, dude, separate your writing into paragraphs once in a while, and more people will read your post.
