The Architect of Aspartame
Let’s begin the Aspartame saga with how it was astonishingly and surreptitiously allowed to become available to endanger the world with it’s horrific effects. Remember NutriSweet? What happened to it? As the dangers became known, it was necessary to change the name to the generic aspartame, which really needs no capitalizing but it has morphed into it. That is the norm when the public catches on, such as Splenda having chlorine in it and changing to the generic sucralose. Beware of aspartame and sucralose on labels.
The Architect of Aspartame
A former G.D. Searle salesperson, Patty Wood-Allott, revealed that Donald Rumsfeld, president of Searle (at the time), told his sales force that, if necessary, “he would call in all his markers and that no matter what, he would see to it that aspartame would be approved that year”. (mgold, Gordon, US Senate Record). Believe me, these are famous, or rather infamous last words that many peole are now familiar with. Keeping his word, Rumsfeld saw to it that Searle falsified results of their animal testing, worked with congressional and federal officials, bribed investigators when violations of law were exposed, etc. So it went down in history and posterity that Donald Rumsfeld is the Architect of Aspartame, responsible for the potential death of 200 million people worldwide ultimately. We are well on our way.
On January 21, 1981, the day after Ronald Reagan was inaugurated as President of the United States, Searle Pharmaceuticals reapplied to the FDA for aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet) approval again after failing.
On July 18, 1981 the ‘newly appointed’ FDA Commissioner Arthur Hull Hayes, Jr., approved aspartame for use in dry foods, overruling the Public Board of Inquiry and ignoring several laws of the FDA.
Aspartame was given approval for use in ALL foods in 1996 by Dr. David Kessler, FDA Commissioner. He signed the blanket approval, in what health writer/researcher Mark Gold calls an ‘unconscionable act’.
Aspartame: What is it?
The synthetic amino acids that compose aspartame, phenylalanine, aspartic acid, and methanol(wood alcohol) in which they are bound, are, poison, neurotoxins, and there is chemical proof of this. Phenylalanine (50% of aspartame) causes seizures and degrades into DKP, a tumor causing agent. Aspartic Acid (40% of aspartame) caused holes in the brains of mice (Dr. John Olney, neuroscientist, Washington University, St. Louis, MO.)
Dr. H. J. Roberts, F.A.C.P., F.C.C.P., after 30 years research on Alzheimer’s, says that these two neurotoxins go past the blood brain barrier and deteriorate the neurons of the brain. “This is the cause of Alzheimer’s” he claims. In 1995 he says that 50% of all patients in nursing homes had Alzheimer’s. I might add my theory here from my caregiving experience, that all nursing homes and assisted living homes have ‘sugar free’ desserts on their menus and nearly everyone orders them regardless of anyone’s weight. They believe sugar-free is ‘healthier’. It is very feasible that it’s exponential growth may even have started this way. Nearly all residents eat dessert twice a day, and then there are the breakfast foods laden with aspartame also. .
Dr. Roberts has identified a number of health problems such as headaches, dizziness, confusion, memory loss, ALZ, seizures, insomnia, chronic fatigue, hypoglycemia, joint pains, hair loss and rashes as reproducible, caused by what he calls ‘Aspartame Poisoning’. Seizures are an epidemic.
ASPARTAME: What does it do?
Dr. Russell Blaylock, author of “Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills” gives his definition of an excitotoxin on the back cover: “A substance added to foods and beverages that literally stimulates neurons to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees.”
Aspartame: The Bitter Truth Behind This Toxic Sweetener
Key in this mad mixture is that methanol is a cumulative toxin in the body. Because it is “free” methanol, appearing without ethanol (the antidote for methanol toxicity that is always present in natural food such as fruit juice), the methanol in aspartame is lethal. This methanol toxicity mimics Multiple Sclerosis. If these people get off of Aspartame, the symptoms will disappear. Systemic lupus is becoming rampant, especially among Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. Aspartame changes the chemistry in the brain. It changes the dopamine level in the brain. Now give a person antidepressants and SSRI’s and you have a strange mix of Frankenstein effects on the brain.
As if this wasn’t deadly enough, the methanol in aspartame breaks down into formaldehyde (embalming fluid) and formic acid which has the chemical composition of ant venom. Formic acid is used commercially in products such as paint stripper. Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of drugs as Cyanide and Arsenic. Unfortunately, it is cumulative, and it just takes longer to quietly kill, but it is killing people and causing many kinds of neurological conditions regardless.
Aspartame: Major cause of obesity?
Of course, Aspartame is hardly a ‘diet’ product when it makes you crave carbs. It is addictive. The formaldehyde stores in the fat cells (as all drugs do since the body does not know how to get rid of them). This is especially deadly for diabetics, keeping the blood sugar level out of control and eventually causing coma.
Interestingly, Aspartame is recommended by the American Diabetic Association, which is funded by Monsanto, the chemical manufacturer of Aspartame. Type 2 diabetes is curable, but certainly not when eating and drinking Aspartame.
Millions of Americans, and worldwide now, are living a nightmare, and even today, their physicians don’t recognize the symptoms of aspartame poisoning. Monsanto has managed to influence organizations like the AMA, ADA, FDA, etc., to declare this poison safe. So doctors apparently never research this in all these years. Some are waking up and developing detox programs specifically for aspartame poisoning, but most don’t dare.
We watch silently while major beverage companies ‘contribute’ to colleges and universities to be the ‘official drink’ while we applaud the ‘war’ against street drugs. Is this not hypocrisy? And it has been shown that young athletes are dropping dead from these drinks.
I hope you have heard and seen enough to reconsider what you purchase, allow in your house, give to your children, and ingest yourself every day, as well as research further. Please take the time to read labels, because they are counting on dumbing you down to apathy so you won’t. It is worth the few minutes and it could save you from drastic complications later in your health. It sometimes takes time, even years to see and feel the damage and it is then, much harder to undo, if at all. As Betty Martini, D. Hum, Founder of Mission Possible World Health International, (warning the world off aspartame) has stated, ‘Never, ever forget the words of Dr. M. Alemany, who did the Trocho Study: “Aspartame will murder 200 million people”! Don’t be one of them! Wake UP, World!
