Aspartame: Sweet Misery

What happens when dishonest scientists, crooked politicians and corporate America join forces to “make life better” for you?

1. Aspartame, which is sold under a wide variety of names as a zero cal sweetener, is a neurotoxin.

2. It’s in literally thousands of package food products including but not limited to diet soft drinks, candy, and chewing gum.

3. The science is, and has always been, clear:  this is not a substance safe for human consumption.

– JavierVMaldonado


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 haven’t you heard about aspartame poisoning before? 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. 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.

Phenylalanine – Aspartame Poisoning 

Nutrition fact about Phenylalanine in aspartame:

The 1976 Groliers encyclopedia states cancer cannot live without phenylalanine. Aspartame contains 50% phenylalanine.

Phenylalanine is one of the essential amino acids found in proteins, but I am one of the believers that amino acids should be eaten in combination, not in isolated form. Nature provides amino acids in combination; only man isolates them for processing purposes.

Phenylalanine is found naturally in foods such as eggs, milk, bananas, and meat. If you are PKU (Phenylketonuric) or sensitive to phenylalanine, you will react to the phenylalanine in aspartame. You many want to get a blood test to check for this condition. Over the past 20 years, humans have become more aware of PKU reactions because human beings began using isolated phenylalanine to the degree it is harmful to some individuals, many as aspartame side effects. My suggestion would be to research PKU and phenylalanine extensively. Phenylalanine can be very harmful to diabetics.

Read all food labels and avoid anything with isolated amino acids. You want to buy products with at least eight amino acids in combination.

The Dangers of Aspartame: A Disease and World Epidemic
by Betty Martini

Dr. H. J. Roberts, M.D., F.A.C.P., F.C.C.P., internationally known medical consultant, researcher and world expert on aspartame, has declared aspartame disease to be a world epidemic. Dr. Roberts, who has authored many books on the subject, presented his findings at the First International Conference on Emerging Diseases (held in March l998 in Atlanta, Georgia), which was attended by doctors and scientists from 91 countries of the world.

I have lectured on the toxic effects of aspartame (marketed in this country as “NutraSweet,” “Equal,” and “Spoonful”) for several years. In 1995, at the World Environmental Conference, I began to address the relationship of aspartame poisoning to individuals who have been misdiagnosed as having multiple sclerosis (MS). I presented case histories of individuals who were diagnosed as having MS though, upon abstaining from aspartame, found that their symptoms disappeared. How is this possible? First, it important to realize that when the temperature of aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F., the wood alcohol in aspartame coverts 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). As methanol toxicity mimics multiple sclerosis, some people have been diagnosed with having multiple sclerosis in error. Though multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, methanol toxicity is. (This has been found to be especially prevalent among Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers, especially in those who drink three or more 12 oz. cans per day.)

It has also been found that aspartame can trigger cases of systemic lupus. Just as with misdiagnosed MS, the individual usually does not know that aspartame is the culprit. With continued use of aspartame, the lupus may be aggravated to such a degree that it becomes life threatening. While aspartame-triggered lupus does not reverse, many individuals have found that, upon elimination of aspartame, they become asymptomatic.

Aspartame can destroy the brain, optic nerve and central nervous system, as well as wreak havoc on other organs of the body. At lectures, I often identify some of the 92 documented symptoms from the FDA report on aspartame. As I sometimes say, “If you are using aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.) and 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!”

Aspartame was not approved until 1981, in dry foods. For over eight years the FDA refused to approve it because of the seizures and brain tumors this drug produced in lab animals. The FDA continued to refuse to approve it until President Reagan took office (a friend of Searle) and fired the FDA Commissioner who wouldn’t approve it. Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes was appointed as commissioner. Even then there was so much opposition to approval that a Board of Inquiry was set up. The Board said: “Do not approve aspartame”. Dr. Hayes OVERRULED his own Board of Inquiry. Shortly after Commissioner Arthur Hull Hayes, Jr., approved the use of aspartame in carbonated beverages, he left for a position with G.D. Searle’s Public Relations firm.

USA former secretary of defense, Donald Rumsfeld, is the man that has caused more deaths in the world than no other man. Aspartame has been one of his best Bio-weapons of mass destruction. Every day and worldwide, people are being affected by the brutal effects of ASPARTAME, but, what is worse, this drug also targets children and new born babies! The FDA has records of the great damage this drug causes in people, but they have been so irresponsible, and had ignored every effort to remove ASPARTAME from all the common products that people consumes every day. They don’t have the control! we have it! it’s in your hands to stop this MASS MURDER!   –  IAMLIGHT777

You know what’s sad. for the past year I’ve been pointing out the problems of the world to my family and friends. Telling them that we need a new government. They usually all answer the same way. “It’s too much work”

It’s strange how my husband and I have more ideas and more thoughts than our own friends and family’s.

I think TV * has a lot to do with what is going on. I stopped watching TV in 2005 when I got my first apartment with my husband. Haven’t watched it since. But it’s just my opinion.  – sakitakono

The artificial sweetener, aspartame, is the bedrock of the diet industry. Found in everything from fizzy drinks to vitamin pills and marketed under a variety of different names, it is difficult to detect and even harder to avoid. But how safe is it? Does it really cause brain tumours, blindness and other serious illnesses? This shocking documentary investigates how the FDA came to approve such a potentially dangerous product.  – journeymanpictures

Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World reveals one of the most pervasive, insidious forms of corporate negligence since tobacco.

The toxic long-term effects of aspartame are often dismissed as a hoax by the sweetener industry; however this new documentary thoroughly unravels something infinitely more alarming than merely a hoax.

About 200 times sweeter than the refined sugar it is meant to replace, Aspartame is the artificial sweetener used in such brands as Equal and NutraSweet. Not long ago, aspartame was on a Pentagon list of biowarfare chemicals submitted to Congress — yet this lethal product remains on grocery shelves and continues to be highly touted in the media.

Most people interested in natural health will understand that artificial sweeteners are not healthy for you. But nearly everyone of us leads busy lives that limits us from reading all we would like to, especially about things that may not be that much of a problem anyway.

After all, millions of people drink diet sodas every day and they aren’t dropping dead like flies, and the government did approve this sweetener as safe so it can’t be too bad.

Wrong, Wrong, Wrong

If you believe the above you are in for a sorry surprise. The beautiful aspect of this movie is that in a short ninety minutes you will easily in the relaxed comfort of your own home finally understand why aspartame is a toxic poison and needs to be avoided.

“Aspartame is just one of the means that the global elite, the Illuminati are using to dumb down and reduce the world population to 500 million.”

What can you do about aspartame poisoning?
