The king of artificial sweeteners was allowed to enter the
market in 1981 when the U.S. Commissioner of Food and Drugs, Arthur Hull Hayes,
disregarded and overruled FDA panel suggestions, as well as consumer concerns. It’s
a fact that it was never tested on
humans before its approval, and yet can be found in over 6,000 products and
consumed by more than 250 million people, with Americans consuming around half
of the world supply.
Aspartame is a neurotoxin
that interacts with natural organisms, as well as synthetic medications,
producing a wide range of proven disorders
and syndromes. So who gave the okay for this toxin to be approved against scientists
and the public’s safety? Donald Rumsfeld, CEO of G.D. Searle; the maker of Aspartame.
Rumsfeld was on Reagan’s transition team, and the day after Reagan took
office he appointed the new FDA Commissioner in order to “call in his
markers” with one of the most infamous
cases of “profit-over-safety” ever recorded. Aspartame is now found nearly
everywhere, moving beyond “sugarless”
products and into general foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals, and even products
for children. It recently has been renamed to the more pleasant sounding AminoSweet. But don’t let this deceive
you; they don’t want you to know the dangers it possesses. Aspartame/AminoSweet
is by far the most dangerous substance on the market. It even hides behind brand
names such as NutraSweet, Equal,
Spoonful, and Equal-Measure, Splenda, Sweet ‘N Low. But its makers cannot
conceal that it accounts for 80-85
percent of food complaints registered with the FDA.
is only the technical name. It was first discovered by accident in 1965 when
James Schlatter, a chemist of D.D Searle Company, was creating an anti-ulcer
drug. That’s right; aspartame wasn’t even meant to be a sweetener, but an anti-ulcer drug. It was after he
happened to taste it on his hand and saw that it was sweet, that he decided to
market it as an artificial sweetener to earn himself billions of more dollars. Interesting
to note is that this toxin tried to get approved in 1974, but objections were
filed by neuroscience researcher Dr. John W. Olney and Consumer attorney James
Turner. Investigations of G.D. Searle’s research practices caused the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) to put approval on hold. In 1985 Monsanto purchased G.D. Searle and made
Searle Pharmaceuticals and The NutraSweet Company separate subsidiaries.
Many of the reactions to this toxin include very serious seizures (epilepsy), brain tumors, cancer, multiple
sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, mental
retardation, lymphoma, birth defects, fibromyalgia, diabetes (because it increases insulin levels) and may even cause death. Over the course of 7 years a
study found that as little as 20 mg per day can cause cancer in humans. A few
of the 90 different documented symptoms listed in the report were:
- muscle spasms
- weight gain
- vision problems
- hearing loss
- heart palpitations
- breathing difficulties
- anxiety attacks
- slurred speech
- lose of taste
- memory loss
- joint pain
- menstrual disorders
The most sinister
part of all of this is that it’s marketed to children in various candies. It’s
especially dangerous for pregnant women to digest this toxin. The reason is
because infants and young children have yet to fully develop their blood-brain
barrier, which helps protect against toxins like this one, so it becomes extremely toxic to them. The way it
works is that Aspartame is an excito toxin,
which binds with cells, adding too much calcium to them, which causes them to
die. Because of this it creates nervous system disorders. Also, it’s commonly
known that childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years, and individuals
who consume non-nutritive sweeteners, end up craving sugar more than those whom
don’t use these sweeteners. Over time this toxin builds up in the body wrecking
havoc. Remember to also avoid any “diet”
or “light” food… this is usually
found there, and after long term consumption will actually cause you to gain
What is Aspartame Made of?
Aspartic Acid (40%)
– serious chronic neurological disorders and a myriad of other acute symptoms,
including hormonal problems and memory/hearing loss
– for certain people it may cause emotional disorders such as depression and addiction. The most disturbing
part of this ingredient is that it became more cost effective to manufacture
this chemical by using genetically modified E. coli bacteria to produce large
amounts of phenylalanine. In other words, bacteria excretion combined with an
Methanol (aka wood
alcohol/poison) (10%) – this is a deadly poison that in less serve causes
can also lead to blindness, headaches, ear buzzing, dizziness, nausea,
gastrointestinal disturbances, weakness, vertigo, chills, memory lapse, behavioral
disturbances, neuritis, numbness, and shooting pains.
(DKP) – this is a byproduct of aspartame after it is digested in the body.
This chemical is what’s responsible for causing brain tumors.
Why don’t we hear
about these things?
Politics cause a lack of awareness, so aspartame
induced illness are never reported to the media.
Most symptoms are the result of long-term use,
and people do not see the link.
Although it’s easy to prove if brain cells have
been killed, it’s difficult to prove exactly how a brain cell is killed and actually
be able to isolate a specific cause. This is where some common sense can come
into play, since it becomes very obvious what the cause is after learning all
Despite the color, white
and brown sugar is very similar in terms of being “healthy.” So it really
doesn’t make a difference between which one you choose to use since they are
both processed similarly… brown sugar just has molasses added to it which give its
color and texture. Make sure to use either sparingly.
be eaten sparingly too; however its juice does have certain health benefits due
to its range of essential nutrients making it a healthy alternative to refined
sugar. Think of it as a natural high energy drink, since you don’t actually eat
the fibers; you only suck the juice out so it’s sort of like drinking sweet
water. It happens to be a form of grass that grows only in warm, tropic
temperatures. In 2005 Brazil was the largest producer of sugarcane in the
world, followed by India. The following is the list of health benefits from
eating sugarcane sparingly:
Low glycemic index, helps keep the body fit and
Preventing as well as treating sore throat, cold
Since sugarcane has no simple sugar, it can be
enjoyed by diabetics without any fear. However, they intake should still be
limited for people suffering from type-2 diabetes.
Being alkaline in nature, it helps fight against
cancer, especially prostate and breast cancer.
Provides glucose to the body, which is stored as
glycogen and burned by the muscles, whenever they require energy. Therefore, it
is considered to be one of the best sources of energy.
If you have been exposed to heat and physical
activity for too long, drink sugarcane juice. It will help hydrate the body
Strengthens stomach, kidneys, heart, eyes, brain,
and sex organs.
Excellent substitute for aerated drinks and cola.
Clears the urinary flow and also helps the kidney
to perform its functions smoothly.
Good for those who are suffering from febrile
disorders. Febrile disorders are responsible for causing fevers, which can
result in a great amount of protein loss from the body. Liberal consumption of
sugar cane juice provides the necessary protein and other food elements to the
Beneficial for micturation, caused due to high
acidity, along with genorrhoea, enlarged prostate, cyctitis and nepthritis.
Mixing sugarcane juice with lime juice, ginger juice and coconut water will
give better results.
Speeds up the recovery process after jaundice.
Consists of plenty carbohydrates, which serves to
refresh and energize the body. It supplies instant energy to working muscles
and for this reason, it is also known to maximize performance in sports and
Good for digestion, as it can effectively work as a
mild laxative because of its high potassium content.
