Thank you so much for your reply. While we have so many chemicals on the
market that can cause so many things, in the case of aspartame we know
what it is causing. First of all, we're taking all the complaints and
getting people off the poison. If their problems were from something
else they wouldn't disappear within 6 weeks off of aspartame, never to
return unless they use the product again. While we have case history
after case history, on the auto-responder you will see the ones I call
classic. In other words, we see them over and over again. Many times
somebody will be drinking a half a dozen diet drinks a day and I'll tell
him the symptoms he's having! He will say: "But how did you know - that
is what I'm suffering from?" As Dr. H. J. Roberts (world expert on
aspartame) puts it - aspartame is a disease because the symptoms are
predictable - there is a pattern.
People like Shannon Roth went blind on aspartame when it was only in 100
products, Joyce Wilson went blind and died from aspartame when it was in
several hundred. Today its in 5000 products and hard to avoid. People
are getting so much of this poison they are suffering methanol toxicity
which mimics MS, and unfortunately are being diagnosed as such. Dr.
Roberts tells physicians not to diagnose a patient with MS until the
patient has been off aspartame at least 5 months. Joyce Wilson was mis-
diagnosed and it cost her husband hundreds of thousands of dollars to
take care of her because it cost her, her insurance. She saw 34 doctors
and nobody knew what the problem was until she was examined by the late
Dr. Morgan Raiford here who was a specialist in methanol toxicity.
If you notice the case of Alicia Morris on the auto-responder, she says
she was diagnosed with MS by two physicians. As soon as she said she drank
3 Diet Cokes a day and mentioned her equilibrium problems, almost blind
in one eye (methanol converts to formaldehyde in the retina), and the
numbness in her legs, I knew it was methanol toxicity and told her so.
Alicia looked shocked when I told her. She even thought she had a brain
tumor because of the horrible headaches which come from the methanol.
She got off fast. About 6 weeks later her vision returned, her hearing
returned and all the MS type symptoms disappeared. She had never been
able to get pregnant and Dr. James Bowen calls aspartame instant birth
control. But when she was off for some time she did get pregnant and
just about a month or so ago gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Alicia is
one of the more fortunate, we got her in time. Her mother is an RN and
she was in shock when her daughter got well. You couldn't believe every
single medical problem would disappear with ridding herself of aspartame.
She requested medical information and spread it all over the hospital where
There are 92 documented symptoms according to the FDA report of August, l995,
mostly neurological because aspartame destroys the nervous system. And
this is all documented. You can get DR. Roberts tapes: IS ASPARTAME SAFE?
(1 800 -643-2665), and Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, has written
about it in EXCITOTOXINS; THE TASTE THAT KILLS (1 800 -643-2665).
A few months ago the Atlanta Journal Constitution had a full page story
called THE ENEMY WITHIN. It was about the epidemic of chronic fatigue
syndrome. They said it started in the early 80's (when aspartame was
approved), and then said: "could it be something in food?" Aspartame has
caused an epidemic of chronic fatigue syndrome. The methanol breaks down
the immune system.
The pop companies sent diet soda to the troops. One soldier said they
sat on pallets for as long as 8 weeks in the 120 degree Arabian sun, and
they drank them all day. At 86 degrees aspartame liberates methanol in
the can. In their bodies it turned to formaldehyde. They have aspartame
disease - all the identical symptoms, chronic fatigue syndrome, memory
loss (the two amino acids, phenylalanine and aspartic acid, are neurotoxic
when isolated from the other amino acids in protein and go past the blood
brain barrier and deteriorate the neurons of the brain), joint pain,
headaches, and on and on.
Dr. Roberts has written a new book based on 30 years of research on
Alzheimers called DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMERS DISEASE which has now been
nominated for a Pulitzer (1 800 -814-9800). He explains what I've just
told you and says in his opinion aspartame is escalating Alzheimers. I
should say so as one hospice nurse said 30 year old women are being
admitted with Alzheimers and memory loss is one of the most common
symptoms of NutraSweet.
I would suggest you read some of these publications and you will realize
how deadly this poison is. Its not even a diet product. The
Congressional Record says it makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain
weight. Sure enough when Dr. Roberts got some patients off NutraSweet
the average weight loss was 19 lbs.
This product has no value whatsoever except to kill rats - which is what
it did in the original laboratory studies.
By the fact, that symptoms disappear when people abstain from aspartame
shows you right there what triggered them. This is why we tell people to
take the "no aspartame test" and send us their case history. If their
problems were from some other cause they wouldn't go away. A lot of
people are shocked at how many problems go away. In fact, just before my
daughter married her intended told me he used NutraSweet without problem.
I had no intention of letting my son-in-law use it. It causes birth
defects even when a man uses it (in Dr. Roberts new report on pregnancy
and aspartame and what happened in the case of Desert Storm Syndrome).
When I saw Bob two weeks later after he got gotten off aspartame he said:
"Well what do you know! I thought I was just getting older. All of a
sudden my vision got better. My headaches disappeared and insomnia I had
had for years vanished. I feel great now!"
Again, this is why we tell people - TAKE THE NO ASPARTAME TEST!" Also,
take it back to the store!!!!
This is a deadly poison masquerading as a sweetener. Believe me - I'm
dealing with the people and getting them off and seeing them return to
normal, healthful lives - that is when we get them in time. Some have
already perished - don't be a statistic!
