Aspartame is marketed as NutraSweet, Equal Spoonful, Benevia, NatraTaste
and since the patent on it has now expired it likely will come on the market under many different names.

The dangers of aspartame poisoning have been a well-guarded secret since the 1980s. The research and history of aspartame is conclusive as a cause of illness and toxic reactions in the human body. Aspartame is a dangerous chemical food additive, and its use during pregnancy and by children is one of the greatest modern tragedies of all.

Why isn't this generally known? Partly because the diet industry is worth trillions of American dollars to corporations, and they want to protect their profits by keeping the truth behind aspartame's dangers hidden from the public.

The FDA Review Board denied  approval of aspartame September 30, 1980 based on a 50% rate of brain tumors from aspartame fed to the laboratory animals- rats, guinea pigs, monkeys and dogs. Large tumors appeared in the brains and in the nervous systems of the lab animals, and numerous deaths were recorded among mice under two years of age. According to the FDA Board of Inquiry, the number of recorded tumors from aspartame was in the hundreds. Aspartame surprisingly was "approved", nonetheless in 1981, despite the Board's recommendation to withdraw approval for aspartame. You have to read about this. Better yet below you can watch a video presentation on how this poison got the OK to be used in foods.

When NutraSweet® was introduced for the 'second' time in 1981, a diet craze revolutionized America's eating protocols and a well-oiled money machine was set into motion changing modern lifestyles. 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.

The components of aspartame can lead to a number of health problems. Side effects can occur gradually, can be immediate, or can be acute reactions. According to Lendon Smith, M.D. there is an enormous population suffering from side effects associated with aspartame, yet have no idea why drugs, supplements and herbs don’t relieve their symptoms. Then, there are users who don’t ‘appear’ to suffer immediate reactions at all. Even these individuals are susceptible to the long-term damage caused by excitatory amino acids, phenylalanine, methanol, and DKP.

All adverse reactions from aspartame are to numerous to list here.  Side effects of aspartame include:

bulletEye - blindness in one or both eyes, decreased vision, blurring, bright flashes, and more...
bulletEar- tinnitus - ringing or buzzing sound,  marked hearing impairment and more.....
bulletNeurological - epileptic seizures, headaches, migraines, dizziness, memory loss,  numbness of the limbs
Psychological/Psychiatric - severe depression, irritability, aggression, anxiety, personality changes
bulletChest - palpitations, shortness of breath, recent high blood pressure
bulletAdditional Symptoms of Aspartame Toxicity include the most critical symptoms of all
death; irreversible brain damage; birth defects, including mental retardation; peptic ulcers;
aspartame addiction and increased craving for sweets; hyperactivity in children; severe depression;
aggressive behavior; suicidal tendencies .....

You don't think that Aspartame is a threat to your health? Then you better watch this video, Sweet Misery, a Poisoned World. 90 minutes of people who have health problems from Aspartame and MD's and other experts explaining how poisonous this product is. "Excellent documentary showing how dangerous artificial sweetner Aspartame is. From its history, to its effects this video is enough to shock anyone into really looking at there food labels next time they shop. Aspartame is a toxic food that came into the world as an investment By Donald Rumsfeld, while ignoring the deadly effects the tests showed. Take a good look at this video, it could save lives."

Dr. Woodrow C. Monte wrote: "Methanol [one of the breakdown products of aspartame] has no therapeutic properties and is considered only as a toxicant. The ingestion of two teaspoons of Methanol is considered lethal in humans" (Monte, Woodrow, "Aspartame: Methanol and the Public Health", Journal of Applied Nutrition, Vol. 36, Number 1, 1984, p. 44). (Methanol is wood alcohol, a poison to living things.)

Though it can hardly be considered good fortune to have an immediate reaction to aspartame, at least you are spared the potential long-term ticking time-bomb of a large array of neurological illnesses. These include, but are not limited to Brain Cancer, Lou Gehrig's Disease, Graves Disease, Chronic Fatigue, MS and Epilepsy. - Sound & Fury.TV

"It [aspartame] appears to cause slow, silent damage in those unfortunate enough to not have immediate reactions and a reason to avoid it. It may take one year, five years, 10 years, or 40 years, but it seems to cause some reversible and some irreversible changes in health over long-term use." - (2)

"The absorption of methanol into the body is sped up considerably when free methanol is ingested. Free methanol is created from aspartame when it is heated to above 86 Fahrenheit (30 Centigrade). This would occur when aspartame-containing product is improperly stored or when it is heated (e.g., as part of a “food” product such as Jello). Methanol breaks down into formic acid and formaldehyde in the body. Formaldehyde is a deadly neurotoxin..." - (2)

Aspartame may trigger, mimic, or cause the following illnesses:
bulletChronic Fatigue Syndrome;
bulletPost-Polio Syndrome;
bulletLyme Disease;
bulletGrave’s Disease;
bulletMeniere’s Disease;
bulletAlzheimer’s Disease;
bulletMultiple Sclerosis (MS);
bulletMercury sensitivity from Amalgam fillings;
bulletAttention Deficit Disorder (ADD) .......

These are not allergies or sensitivities, but diseases and disease syndromes. Aspartame poisoning is commonly misdiagnosed because aspartame symptoms mock textbook ‘disease’ symptoms, such as Grave’s Disease.

Aspartame changes the ratio of amino acids in the blood, blocking or lowering the levels of serotonin, tyrosine, dopamine, norepinephrine, and adrenaline. Therefore, it is typical that aspartame symptoms cannot be detected in lab tests and on x-rays. Textbook disorders and diseases may actually be a toxic load as a result of aspartame poisoning of your body.

Ever gone to the doctor with real, physical symptoms, but he/she can’t find the cause? Well, it’s probably your diet, your environment, or both. It is likely from your consumption of Aspartame (Nutrasweet).

There is an epidemic of brain tumors in this country. Interesting that this rise in brain tumors can be pointed back to the date of introduction of Aspartame. Watch the movie, Sweet Misery, a Poisoned World. You are poisoning yourself when you consume Aspartame.

What's the  Donald Rumsfeld Connection?

You might wonder why on earth would a story about a poisonous substance called aspartame have a picture of Donald Rumsfeld in the middle of it. You would not be drinking this stuff had it not been for Donald Rumsfeld.

So how did aspartame become a food additive? The Searle Co. had been seeking FDA approval for fifteen years. While it funded a number of reports minimizing aspartame's dangers, a number of independent tests proved it to be unsafe. That all changed with the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980. A member of Reagan's transition team, Donald Rumsfeld was appointed CEO of Searle.   Calling in his markers,   Rumsfeld was able to get aspartame fast tracked as a food additive despite FDA reports it caused brain tumors among other things.

 It's so deadly, flies wouldn't touch it and the rats wouldn't eat it.

Watch a video about this sad but true story of how the man that brought us an invasion and occupation of Iraq, the Patriot Act (and Vietnam) and God (and a few select Republicans) knows what else, was also kind enough to get the FDA to give its blessing to using this poison in our foods.
