Diet Pepsi and Coke and Artificial Sweeteners

This is a forwarded message i received in my mailbox this morning:

 

SWEET  POISON!   A MUST  READ! 

 

In  October of 2008, my sister started getting very  sick.    She  had stomach spasms and she was having a hard  time getting  around. 
Walking  was a major chore.    It  took everything she had just to get out of bed;  she was in so much pain.

By March  2002, she had undergone several tissue and  muscle biopsies and was on 24 various  prescription medications.  The doctors  could not determine what was wrong with  her.   She  was in so much pain, and so sick she just knew  she was dying.

She  put her house, bank accounts, life insurance,  etc., in her oldest daughter's name, and made  sure that her younger children were to be taken  care of.

She also wanted her last  hooray, so she planned a trip to Florida  (basically in a wheelchair) for March  22nd.

On March 19 I called her to  ask how her most recent tests went, and she said  they didn't find anything on the test, but they  believed she had MS.    I  recalled an article a friend of mine e-mailed to  me and I asked my sister if she drank diet  soda?    She  told me that she  did. 
As  a matter of fact, she was getting ready to crack  one open that moment.

I told her  not to open it, and to stop drinking the diet  soda!    I  e-mailed her the article my friend, a lawyer,  had sent.    My  sister called me within 32 hours after our phone  conversation and told me she had stopped  drinking the diet soda AND she could  walk!  The muscle spasms went away.  She said she didn't feel 100% but, she sure felt  a lot better.

She  told me she was going to her doctor with this  article and would call me when she got  home.

Well, she called me, and said her  doctor was amazed!    He  is going to call all of his MS patients to find  out if they consumed artificial sweeteners of  any kind.    In  a nutshell, she was being poisoned by the  Aspartame in the diet soda...and literally dying  a slow and miserable death.

When  she got to Florida March 22, all she had to take  was one pill, and that was a pill for the  Aspartame poisoning!    She  is well on her way to a complete recovery.   And she is walking!
No  wheelchair!

This  article saved her life.  If it says 'SUGAR  FREE' on the label;  DO  NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!   I have  spent several days lecturing at the WORLD  ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on 'ASPARTAME,'  marketed as 'Nutra  Sweet,''Equal,'  and  'Spoonful.'

In  the keynote address by the EPA, it was announced  that in the United States in 2001 there is an  epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic  lupus.    It  was difficult to determine exactly what toxin  was causing this to be  rampant.    I  stood up and said that I was there to lecture on  exactly that subject.  I will explain why  Aspartame is so  dangerous:
When  the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86  degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME  converts 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.  The  methanol toxicity mimics, among other  conditions, multiple sclerosis and systemic  lupus.

Many  people were being diagnosed in  error. 
Although  multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence,  Methanol toxicity is!

Systemic  lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple  sclerosis, especially  with Diet  Coke and Diet Pepsi  drinkers. 

The  victim usually does not know that the Aspartame  is the culprit.    He  or she continues its use; irritating the lupus  to such a degree that it may become a  life-threatening  condition.    We  have seen patients with systemic lupus become  asymptotic, once taken off diet  sodas.

In cases of those diagnosed  with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms  disappear. We've seen many cases where vision  loss returned and hearing loss improved  markedly.

This also applies to  cases of tinnitus and  fibromyalgia.    During  a lecture, I said,
'If  you are using ASPARTAME  (Nutra  Sweet, Equal, Spoonful,  etc)  and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms,  spasms, shooting, pains, numbness in your  legs,  Cramps,
Vertigo, Dizziness, Headaches, Tinnitus,  Joint pain, Unexplainable  depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech,  blurred vision, or memory loss you probably have  ASPARTAME poisoning!' People were jumping  up during the lecture  saying, 'I  have some of these  symptoms.   Is  it  reversible?'

Yes!    Yes!     Yes!
STOP  drinking diet sodas and be alert for Aspartame  on food labels!    Many  products
are  fortified with it!  This is a serious  problem.
Dr.  Espart (one of my speakers) remarked that so  many people seem to be symptomatic for MS and  during his recent visit to a hospice; a nurse  stated that six of her friends, who were heavy  Diet  Coke addicts,  had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond  coincidence!

Diet soda  is NOT a  diet product! It is a chemically altered,  multiple SODIUM (salt) and ASPARTAME containing  product that actually makes you crave  carbohydrates. 

It  is far more likely to make you GAIN  weight!

These  products also contain formaldehyde, which stores  in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and  thighs.  Formaldehyde is an absolute  toxin and is used primarily to preserve 'tissue  specimens.'

Many  products we use every day contain this chemical  but we SHOULD NOT store it IN our  body!

Dr.  H. J. Roberts stated in his lectures that once  free of the  'diet  products'  and with no significant increase in exercise;  his patients lost an average of 19 pounds over a  trial period.

Aspartame is  especially dangerous for  diabetics.   We  found that some physicians, who believed that  they had a patient with retinopathy, in fact,  had symptoms caused by  Aspartame.   The  Aspartame drives the blood sugar out of  control.   Thus  diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to  the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine  are NEUROTOXIC when taken without the other  amino acids necessary for a good  balance.

Treating diabetes is all  about BALANCE.
Especially  with diabetics, the Aspartame passes the  blood/brain barrier and it then deteriorates the  neurons of the brain; causing various levels of  brain damage,Seizures, Depression, Manic  depression, Panic  attacks, Uncontrollable  anger and rage.

Consumption of  Aspartame causes these same symptoms in  non-diabetics as well.
Documentation  and observation also reveal that thousands of  children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have had  complete turnarounds in their behavior when  these chemicals have been removed from their  diet.

So  called 'behavior modification prescription  drugs' (Ritalin and others) are no longer  needed. Truth  be told, they were never NEEDED in the first  place! 

Most  of these children were being 'poisoned' on a  daily basis with the very foods that were  'better for them than sugar.'

It is  also suspected that the Aspartame in thousands  of pallets of diet  Coke and diet Pepsi consumed  by men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may  be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf  War Syndrome.

Dr. Roberts warns  that it can cause birth defects, i.e. mental  retardation, if taken at the time of conception  and during early  pregnancy.
Children  are especially at risk for neurological  disorders and should NEVER be given artificial  sweeteners. 

There  are many different case histories to relate of  children suffering grand mal seizures and other  neurological disturbances talking about a plague  of neurological diseases directly caused by the  use of this deadly poison.'

Herein  lies the problem:
There  were Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was  included in 100 different products and strong  objection was made concerning its use. Since  this initial hearing, there have been two  subsequent hearings, and still nothing has been  done.  The  drug and chemical lobbies have very deep  pockets.

Sadly, MONSANTO'S patent  on Aspartame has  EXPIRED!    There  are now over 5,000 products on the market that  contain this deadly chemical and there will be  thousands more introduced.  Everybody  wants a 'piece of the Aspartame  pie.'

I  assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of  Aspartame, knows how deadly it  is.

And isn't it ironic that  MONSANTO funds, among others, the American  Diabetes   Association, the American  Dietetic Association and the Conference of the  American College of  Physicians?

This has been recently  exposed in the New York Times.  These  [organizations] cannot criticize any additives  or convey their link to MONSANTO because they  take money from the food industry and are  required to endorse their  products.

Senator Howard Metzenbaum  wrote and presented a bill that would require  label warnings on products containing Aspartame,  especially regarding pregnant women, children  and  infants. 

The  bill would also institute independent studies on  the known dangers and the problems existing in  the general population regarding seizures,  changes in brain chemistry, neurological changes  and behavioral symptoms.

The bill  was killed.

It is known that the  powerful drug and chemical lobbies are  responsible for this, letting loose the hounds  of disease and death on an unsuspecting and  uninformed public. Well, you're informed  now!

YOU  HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW!
