page exists solely to try and spread the word about the numerous &
serious dangers of regular aspartame (Nutrasweet, Equal) consumption.
Currently the 100+ articles on this page contain facts & opinions
from over 50 doctors & nutritionists, many of which have
each "cured" their patients of many symptoms (including weight gain)
simply by removing aspartame from their diet. These 50+ doctors
strongly recommend avoiding all aspartame products. Numerous articles
detailing the unbelievable history of the aspartame approval are also
provided, along with thousands of testimonials from former users. Some
info. on the new sweetener Splenda (sucralose) found in Diet Rite soda
is also provided.
The multi-billion dollar aspartame industry would like you believe that "aspartame kills" is an "urban legend"
and that you'd have to drink 100 cans of diet soda a day to be harmed
by aspartame. This is just simply not true. Their main claim is that
the 3 components of aspartame are found in many natural foods and are
therefore safe. This is kind of like saying carbon monoxide is safe
because all it contains is carbon & oxygen, the same components of
carbon dioxide. Methanol
(wood alcohol), which makes up 10% of aspartame and is highly toxic
(adult minimum lethal dose is 2 teaspoons), is also found in some
fruits & vegetables like tomatoes. However, methanol is never found
in natural foods without ethanol & pectin, its "antidotes"
if you will (detailed facts below). Ethanol & pectin prevent
methanol from being metabolized into formaldehyde (embalming
fluid) & formic acid (same chemical as fire ant venom), both deadly
toxins. An ethanol drip is even the standard emergency room treatment
for methanol poisoning. Aspartame contains no ethanol or pectin,
therefore the methanol is converted to formaldehyde and formic acid.
Phenylalanine and aspartic acid, the other 2 components of aspartame,
are amino acids found in natural foods but always as part of long
chains of many different amino acids to form complex protein molecules
that take humans 12 hours to gradually break down & assimilate.
According to the doctors below, when consumed by themselves these 2
amino acids require no digestion and quickly enter the brain &
central nervous system at abnormally high levels, overstimulating brain
cells to death and causing many other health problems.
aspartame people point to industry sponsored short term tests, ignoring
independant tests. They point to "reliable" health sites,
organizations, foundations etc. that are sponsored, funded & fed
"facts" by companies that profit from aspartame. And of course, the FDA
approved it so "it must be safe", neglecting to mention that the FDA denied aspartame approval for over 8 years until the newly appointed FDA commissioner Arthur Hull Hayes overruled
the final scientic review panel, approved aspartame, and then went to
work for G.D. Searle's (initial owner of aspartame) public relations
firm at $1,000 a day. Hayes has refused all interviews to discuss his
actions. The FDA also urged Congress to prosecute G.D. Searle for
"specific false statements or concealed facts" stemming from Searle's
testing of aspartame. However, the 2 government lawyers assigned to the
case decided against prosecuting G.D. Searle and then joined G.D.
Searle's law firm! Even the National Soft Drink Assn. filed a strong
protest letter (available below) in 1983 against the approval of
aspartame for use in beverages, saying "aspartame is inherently,
markedly and uniquely unstable in aqueous media." Also, the FDA still
allows hydrogenated oils to be used, does that make them safe?
Our suggestion: First READ ALL THE QUOTES provided below, then go back and read some of the articles. And remember, they're talking about the CUMULATIVE effects
of regular aspartame consumption and that some people are more affected
than others (but everyone is affected) due to a few factors including
the condition of their protective blood-brain barrier. Bookmark this
page and email it to everyone you know, especially pregnant women. .
is being sent to you since I keep hearing of reports of people on various lists
I am on that know NOTHING of the dangers of aspartame. Most are
not even aware Aspartame (or Neotame) is in Flinestone children's vitamins, in
Kool-Aide, in all breath mint strips from the regular store, and of course it's
in Diet Sodas. Most restaurants and bakeries put Aspartame in their dessert
products -- or anything that requires "sweetness". And for diabetics,
aspartame is particularly deadly. Please read about Dr. H.J. Robert's experience
treating diabetic patients who use aspartame and their marked improvement once
they ceased using this deadly poison. http://www.dorway.com/betty/diabetes.html
Which brings me to the reason
I found out that people in our networks are addicted to aspartame. I was sharing
about our publication of The Artificially Sweetened Times and encouraging
someone to read the text of it at http://www.vaclib.org/news/astimes.htm
review it yourself and get this information OUT THERE!!! Following is the
summary of what is in The Artificially Sweetened Times and how you can
order it. Your order supports VacLib's continuing outreach efforts... AND SAVES LIVES!!!
The Artificially Sweetened Times is
a special edition, 8 page tabloid-sized newsprint publication designed to
educate the public on the artificial sweeteners aspartame and neotame. Topics
· the history of refined sugar(s) and its
link to slavery ·a timeline of aspartame’s discovery and the
politics surrounding its approval ·what we know about aspartame from
scientific safety studies ·what we know about the biological/physical
effects of consuming aspartame ·real life stories of the devastating
effects of aspartame poisoning ·resources for further research and
networking ·guidelines for activism
projecting that this timeless periodical will be reprinted several times until
these artificial sweeteners are eventually removed from the marketplace.
The Artificially Sweetened Times is designed to be mailed for the
cost of a 1st class 37
cent stamp. It MUST be folded in half and taped or stapled to meet both size and
weight requirements. We also encourage you to put them in store fronts on
consignment and distribute them at community meetings.
Hundreds of thousands are fighting the war against Cancer, Heart
Disease and other degenerative diseases.
These diseases have already been prevented and stopped by those of us
that took the time to educate ourselves. We have developed the Advanced
Scientific Health Research Association in hopes that millions of
families will now have access to this vital information. Our mission is
to prevent and stop needless pain and suffering for millions of
families. We are a group of "survivors" that are thankful that someone
took the time to share this information with us. We are here to "Pay It
The information at Advanced Scientific Health (ASH) comes
direct from scientists through their Nobel Prize winning research and
discoveries made in Orthomolecular Science. The scientific facts are
indisputable. These scientists, by looking at disease at the molecular
level, have discovered that ALL disease can be prevented and stopped
when correctly understood.
