...sent to me from my friend in a christian mommies group:IF you drink diet SODAS or diet drink or use fake sugar please read
In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick, she had
stomach spasms, she was having a hard time getting around, to walk
was a major chore. It took everything she had just to get out of
bed, she was in so much pain. By March 2002, she had undergone
biopsies, and was on 24 various prescription medications. The
doctors could not figure out what was wrong with her. She was in so
much pain, and so sick, she knew she was dying.
She put her house, bank accounts, life insurance, etc., in her
oldest daughters name, and made sure her younger children were to be
with her oldest daughter.She wanted her last hooray, so she planned
a trip to Florida (basically Ina wheelchair) for March 22nd. On
March 19th I called her to ask her how one of her tests went, and
she said they didn't find anything on the test, but they believe she
had MS. I thought, oh, my....then I recalled an article a
friend of mine emailed to me..and I asked her...Do you drink Diet
She told me yes, as a matter of fact she was getting ready to crack
one open that moment, I told her not to open it, and stop drinking
the diet pop....and I emailed her the following article. She called
me within 32 hours after our phone conversation and told me she
stopped drinking the diet pop, and she can walk...she went up the
stairs, and the muscle spasms went away. She said she didn't feel
100% but sure felt a lot better. She told me she was going to her
doctors with this article and would call me back when she got home.
She called me, and her doctor was amazed, he is going to call all of
his MS patients to find out if they consumed artificial sweetener.
In a nutshell,she was being poisoned by the aspartame in the diet
soda, dying a slowdeath.
When she got to FL March 22nd, all she had to take was one pill, and
that was a pill for poisoning....she is well on her way to
recovery.!....and she is walking!!! No wheelchair!!!! This article
saved her life!
The life saving article:
If it says "SUGAR FREE," on the label, DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT! I
have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL
CONFERENCE on "ASPARTAME" marketed as 'NutraSweet,' 'Equal,'
and 'Spoonful.' In the keynote address by the EPA, it was announced
that in the United States in 2001 there is an epidemic of multiple
sclerosis and systemic lupus, that it was hard to understand what
toxin was causing this to be rampant. I stood up and said that I was
there to lecture on exactly that subject.
I will explain why Aspartame is so dangerous: When the temperature
of this sweetener 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 poison found in
the sting of fire ants.) Themethanol toxicity mimics among other
conditions multiple sclerosis. People were being diagnosed with
having multiple sclerosis in error. The multiple sclerosis is not a
death sentence, where methanol toxicity is!
Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis,
especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. The victim
usually does not know that the aspartame is the culprit. He or she
continues its use, irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may
become life-threatening We have seen patients with systemic lupus
become asymptotic once taken off diet sodas. In the case of those
diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, (when in reality, the disease is
methanol toxicity), most of the symptoms disappear.
We've seen many cases where vision returned and hearing improved
markedly. This also applies to cases of tinnitus.
During a lecture I said "If you are using ASPARTAME (NutraSweet,
Equal, Spoonful, etc.) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms,
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
have ASPARTAME DISEASE!" People were jumping up during the
lecture saying, I've got some of these symptoms: Is it reversible?"
Yes, Not drinking diet sodas and keeping an eye out for aspartame on
We have a very serious problem. A stranger came up to Dr. Espisto
(one of my speakers) and me and said: "Could you tell me why so many
people seem to be coming down with M S?" During a visit to a
hospice, a nurse said that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet
Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond
coincidence! Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi, etc. IS NOT A DIET PRODUCT!
The Congressional Record states that it makes you crave
carbohydrates and will make you FAT. The formaldehyde stores in the
fat cells, particularly no
significant increase in exercise, etc., Dr. Roberts in his lecture
stated that he had patient who lost an average of 19 pounds over a
Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics. We found that
physicians would believe that they have a patient with retinopathy,
when in fact the symptoms are caused by aspartame. The aspartame
drives the blood sugar out of control. Thus diabetics may suffer
acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and
phenylalanine are neurotoxic with out the other amino acids found in
protein. Thus it passes the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the
neurons of the brain, causing in diabetics (as well as in patients
not suffering from diabetes) various kinds of brain damage,
seizures, depression, manic depression, panic attacks, rage,
violence. (The Aspartame in thousands of pallets of diet Coke and
diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may
be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome.
Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause birth defects i.e. mental
retardation if taken at the time of conception and early pregnancy.
Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and
should NOT be given NutraSweet. I can relate different case
histories of children having mal seizures and other disturbances
being on NutraSweet.
Unfortunately it is not always easy to convince a mother that
aspartame is to blame for her child's illness. Only by trial and
success will she be able
to warn other mothers to take their children's health in their own
Stevia, a sweet herb, NOT A MANUFACTURED ADDITIVE, which helps in
the metabolism of sugar (which would be ideal for diabetics) has now
approved as a dietary supplement by the FDA. For years the FDA has
outlawed this sweet food because of their loyalty to MONSANTO.
Books on this subject are available: EXCITOTOXINS: THE TASTE THAT
KILLS - written by Dr. Russell Blayblock (Health Press 1-800-643-
2665) and DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE - written by DR H. J.
Roberts, also a diabetic specialist. These two doctors will be
posting a position paper with some case histories on the deadly
effects of Aspartame on the Internet.
According to the Conference of the American College of
Physicians! "we are talking about a plague of neurological diseases
caused by this deadly poison." Here is the problem: There were
Congressional Hearings when
aspartame was included in 100 different products. Since this initial
hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, but to no avail.
Nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep
pockets. Now there are over 5,000 products containing this chemical,
and the PATENT HAS EXPIRED!!!!!
I assure you, MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame knows how deadly it
is. They fund among others, the American Diabetes Association, the
American Dietetic Association, the Conference of the American
College of Physicians This has been exposed in the New York Times -
to no avail. These Associations cannot Criticize any additives or
convey their link to MONSANTO because they take money from the food
industry and have to endorse! their products. Senator Howard
Hetzenbaum wrote a bill that would have warned all infants, pregnant
mothers and children of the dangers of aspartame. The bill would h
ave also instituted independent studies on the problems existing in
the population (seizures, changes in brain chemistry, changes
neurological and behavioral; symptoms). It was killed by the
powerful drug and chemical lobbies, letting loose the hounds of
disease and death on an unsuspecting public!
