Aspartame is the technical name for the brand names, NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, and Equal-Measure.
A three-year Italian study on Aspartame in rats revealed a connection between the artificial sweetener and leukemia, lymphoma and malignant brain tumors. It conclusively proved that aspartame is a carcinogen, say the study’s authors.
A famous neurosurgeon calls for the complete removal of aspartame-laden products from all schools. These claims completely refute and destroy those of Aspartame manufacturers. Dr. Betty Martini
“This study should terrify mothers and all those consuming aspartame sweetened products,” he continued. “This was a carefully done study which clearly demonstrated a statistically significant increase in several types of lymphomas and leukemia in rats. Both of these malignancies have increased significantly in this country since the widespread use of aspartame.”
“Since aspartame can increase obesity and may even cause the metabolic syndrome that affects over 50 million North Americans, there is no reason to ever consume this product.
Aspartame was approved for use in dry goods in 1981 under extremely controversial circumstances.
The artificial sweetener is currently found in more than 6,000 products-soft drinks, chewing gum, candy, desserts, table sweeteners and even pharmaceutical drugs and is responsible for more than 80 percent of consumer complaints filed with the FDA each year.
The FDA itself has published a list of 92 potentially adverse reactions to aspartame that includes weight gain, blindness, chronic headaches, insanity and death.
“Results of our study call for urgent reexamination of permissible exposure levels of aspartame in both food and beverages, especially to protect children.”
Aspartame – Artificial sweeteners are an intense source of excitotoxins! Aspartame is a sweetener made from two amino acids, phenylalanine and the excitotoxin aspartate. It should be avoided at all costs.
Approximately 70% of all complaints to the FDA are about the negative health problems associated with aspartame. It has been implicated in everything from blindness to headaches to convulsions.
Aspartame is sold using dozens of brand names such as, NutraSweet and Equal; aspartame breaks down within 20 minutes at room temperature into several primary toxic and dangerous ingredients.
Do you want to know the truth about SPLENDA?
The bitter truth about NutraSweet (Aspartame) and Sucralose (Splenda) appears to cause slow, silent damage in those who are unfortunate enough to not have immediate reactions and a reason to avoid it.
“Aspartame has a profound effect on mood and cognition… depressed mood, anxiety, dizziness, panic attacks, nausea, irritability, impairment of memory and concentration.”
Ralph Walton M.D.
The testing of sucralose reveals that it can cause up to 40 percent shrinkage of the thymus: a gland that is the very foundation of our immune system. Sucralose also causes swelling of the liver and kidneys, and calcification of the kidney. Note: if you experience kidney pain, cramping or an irritated bladder after using SPLENDA, you should stop using it immediately.
“I have observed severe intellectual deterioration associated with the use of aspartame products. It was usually manifest as great difficulty in reading and writing, obvious problems with memory and grossly impaired orientation to time, place and person. Dr. Janet Starr Hull. attacks, slurred speech, loss of taste, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), vertigo and memory loss”
