I recently received this email which highlights the danger of aspartame consumption, namely in the form of Aspartame Poisoning.

Is this true? Is aspartame really that dangerous, or would that be from excessive intake? If so, how much would that be?

Please comment, anyone, cuz I'm worried. I take aspartame everyday in either my drinks or protein powder

This is the email:


A general practitioner sent this to me but I am not responsible for its

ASPARTAME - THE SILENT KILLER
-------------------------------------------------------
Copyright Ron Harder 2002
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 spartame 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 spartame 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. In
the original lab tests on Aspartame, animals that were given
Aspartame developed brain tumors. The enylalanine breaks down into
DXP, which is a brain tumor agent.

How serious is this Aspartame Poisoning? A mother who had a child on
NutraSweet was told to get her child off the product. The child was
having
grand mal seizures every day. The mother spoke to her doctor, who called
the ADA, who told the doctor not to take the child off the NutraSweet.
They are still trying to convince the mother that the Aspartame is
causing
the seizures. Every time you take a grand mal seizure victim
off of Aspartame, the seizures stop.

Here is the major problem. Congressional Hearings were held when
Aspartame
was originally approved for use in 100 different products. Since that
initial hearing, there have been two more hearings to try to ban this
product, but to no avail. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep
pockets.

This list of 100 has now expanded to where there are over 5,000 products
containing this chemical, and the patent has expired. Also, Aspartame is
now available in over 90 countries around the world.

There is a bit of hope. Stevia, a sweet herb which helps in the
metabolism of sugar, and which is proving to be ideal for diabetics, has
now been approved as a dietary supplement by the F.D.A. For years,
the F.D.A. had outlawed this sweet food because of their loyalty
to Monsanto.

I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame, knows exactly how
deadly their product is. They fund the American Diabetes Association,
the
American Dietetic Association, Congress, and the Conference of the
American College of Physicians. They have the contacts and the power
to keep their product on the market. Public health means nothing to
these people, it's all about making money.

Senator Howard Hetzenbaum wrote a bill that would have warned all
pregnant
mothers and children of the dangers of Aspartame. The bill would also
have
instituted independent studies on the problems existing in the
population
(seizures, changes in brain chemistry, changes in neurological and
behavioral symptoms). It was killed by the powerful drug and
chemical lobbies, letting loose the hounds of disease and death.

We ask that you help to get the word out about Aspartame. Print this
article and distribute it to everyone you know. There are a lot of
people
out there who must be warned, PLEASE let them know this information. You
might want to print it out,hand it to your friends, or fax it to people
who
are not online.
Young people drink a lot of Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi, and because of
this,
they are the most susceptible to Aspartame Poisoning. Please let your
children know about the toxins in these drinks.

A large number of adults use Nutrasweet, Equal, or Spoonful. They also
need to be warned of the dangers in those products.
And, very importantly, do not consume anything that has Aspartame in
it.If
it says "Sugar Free" on the label, you know that it contains Aspartame.
DO
NOT USE THIS PRODUCT.

One other thing, and this is for your own benefit. Go to the Search
Engine
"Google" and do a search using the search word "Aspartame". You will be
surprised by what you will find.

Yes. You can also do searches on "moon landing + fake" and "earth + flat" and find numerous pages.

As Cack said, "Bollox."

no one believed saccharine was bad for u when it first came out too

Saccharine isn't dangerous unless you consume kilograms of it each day.

It causes cancer in laboratory rats, but only in such disproportionally large amounts that for all intents and purposes it is not carcinogenic whatsoever.

Unless you are eating a perfectly healthy diet consisting of organic and free range food I dont see why you'd worry about things like aspartame. Consider all of the other garbage thats in normal food (pesticides, hormones, anitbiotics, carcinogens, etc.)
