How Sweet The Poison?

The artificial sweetner Aspartame is reinventing itself under a new name. Now being called AminoSweet by the marketing teams hired to hide it’s past…and what a past it has. Let’s take a look at the history of the new AminoSweet (Aspartame).

This artificial sweetner first got it’s start in 1974. The FDA Board of Inquiry voted unanimously against approving Aspartame for use by humans in 1980. This decision was overruled by the FDA commissioner Athur Hayse Jr. in 1983.

Later in 1983 the FDA task force found falsifications in the orginal reports about Aspartame’s safety for human consumption to hide what clearly showed animals fed Aspartame were found to develope brain tumors and have seizures after injesting this sweetner.

But surprizingly the FDA approved Aspartame for use by humans that same year.

In that same year Aspartame was approved for use in carbonated beverages, a neuroscientist  reported in The New England Journal of Medicine that Aspartame might cause an increase in body weight to those injesting it by over stimulating a craving for the calorie-laden carbohydrates.

By 1991 there were 167 adverse effects cataloged with the use of Aspartame by the National Institutes of Health. Later in 1992 the U. S. Air Force warned pilots not to fly after using beverages containing Aspartame. Again in 1994, 88 symptoms of toxicity were linked to the use of Aspartame as an artificial sweetner by the U. S. Department of Health and Services.

Further studies by research firms has determined Aspartame to be an excitotoxin. This is a substance literally excites the cells of the nervous  system and brain until they die.

Maybe this is the reason why ranchers in Texas have found that using pesticides on troublesome fire ant mounds only made them move to a new location, but sprinkling the artificial sweetners containing Aspartame on the mounds caused the colony to die after the worker ants carried the sweeter inside for all to eat and eventually die.

Aspartame has been linked to the following health conditions by the author of Health Hazards of White Sugar by Lynne Melcombe:

Anxiety Attacks
Appetite Problems – Binge-Eating and Sugar Craving
Birth Defects
Blindness and Vision Problems
Brain Tumors
Chest Pain
Emotional Problems

Menstrural lrregularity and PMS
Muscle Cramps

And last but not least:


Aspartame’s effects have also been mistaken for:

Alzheimer’s Disease
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Epstein-Barr Virus
Huntington’s Chorea
Lou Gehrig’s Disease
Lyme Disease
Meniere’s Disease
Mutiple Sclerosis
Postpolio Syndrome

Randall Fitzgerald author of The Hundred Year Lie wrote that following cancers have been linked to Aspartame:

Brain Cancer
Liver Cancer
Lung Cancer
Kidney Cancer
Lymphoreticular Cancer

Many diet products including soft drinks and a variety of prepared foods contain Aspartame. It can also be found in pharmaceutical drugs, multivitamins, and supplements.

Next time you think about having a diet soft drink consider this.

The author of Hard To Swallow had this to say:

When you store a diet drink containing Aspartame for a week or longer at 85 degees Fahrenheit, “There is no Aspartame left in the soft drinks, just the components it breaks down into, like formaldehyde, formic acid, and diketopiperazine, a chemical which can cause brain tumours.  All of these substances are known to be toxic to humans.”

You may also not know that Aspartame has been used in the making of rat poisons.

Is AminoSweet (Aspartame) really sweet? Yes! A sweet poison!!!
