    In October of 2001, 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 believe 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 an 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 it’s 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,
    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?’
    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 behavioural 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!
    Note: I have been studying health and nutrition for 35 years. What I’ve learned in the past 3 years has been by far…the most valuable. My husband was diagnosed with liver disease 3 years ago and that sent me on a very aggressive search for help. I came across an article about Dr. Otto Warburg that said…he won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for proving that no disease including cancer, can survive in an alkaline body. From there…a friend told me about a Japanese medical device that makes alkaline water. She went on to tell me that since our body is 70% water, drinking alkaline ionized water is the easiest way to raise your pH. It makes perfect sense…the health “puzzle” is made up of many pieces including water, diet, exercise, sleep, etc. But since 3/4 of that puzzle is made up of one big piece…WATER, drinking enough of the “right” kind of water will have a HUGE impact on your health.

    The Truth makes people uncomfortable. Snopes is a cool website to keep the sheeple under control. If your research ends with Snopes, then your really not researching.

    This article does make many unproven claims regarding the relationship of Aspartame to a host of disorders; however, I believe this matter is beyond the pay grade of the snopes staff.
    Please notice that they chose to refute the article based on testimony from an employee at the USFDA. One of the very organizations that has a vested interest in keeping Aspartame on the market. He mentions the research that reached positive conclusions but most of that research comes from the manufacturer themselves and others who have financial interests.
    Monsanto is one the best examples of corporate financial influence on our
    Government agencies.
    I am just saying that some articles bring up compelling hypothesis that are unproven and can be easily dismissed but they are important food for thought and Snopes is not the final word.*
    In the meantime, Aspartame is a chemical which can possible have many negative effects so why not just eliminate it from the body and stay as close to whole foods as possible?

    "Whole foods" would that be food grown with human sewage? Or just a host of chemical fertilizers?

    Groceries grown with human and barnyard fertilizer would have probably been common practice through the years , in spite of the ick factor.:eek:

    I am sure that you are making a point with your questions. I just don't know what it is so I will answer for the readers in general. :confused:

    "Whole Foods" refers to food that is in it's natural form without processing or adding any additional chemicals.

    Example: An orange is a whole food which when eaten in it's natural form provides many phytonutrients in it's juice and pulp.
    Orange juice as we buy it in the store is not a whole food because it has been processed for preservation and taste. Some phytonutrients may get lost and other chemicals are added. It has been changed from it's natural state and it becomes difficult to determine what health effects the added chemicals have on our bodies.

    If you are eating a mostly "whole food" diet you would opt for making your own juice from an orange rather than drink the processed product.

    Whole Foods can be grown where they are exposed to human sewage, chemical fertilizers or none of the above. Buyer beware.
    One good strategy is to purchase your veggies, fruits and meat from local farmers where you are welcome to visit the farm and satisfy your concerns regarding the use of fertilizers, pesticides, etc..

    that was my point.....thank you for the clarification...:)

    Why not? Because it also has some benefits: reduced tooth decay, and it does help those who want to lose weight, when alternatives are not available or palatable.

    We live in an age where chemical exposure is unavoidable, and we each have to decide how much we're willing to tolerate. That decision should be informed with the best scientific evidence available, and the email shared by the OP is not helpful in that endeavor.
    Unless, of course, it leads to further research, but somehow, I don't think that happens in the majority of readers.

    It does neither.

    Research will reveal it actually adds weight...due to chemical process in the body. It does nothing to alleviate tooth decay, and I would place it right up there with the big falsehood toward fluoride use.

    Diet drinks are very detrimental and should be avoided at all cost....same as fluoride.

    Good ole Donald Rumsfeld and Searle would be a good place to start for aspartame research and history.

    Fluoride is a waste by product of fertilizer industry, and what I neat idea to get rid of this toxic poison.....put it in the water, and toothpaste.

    Snopes does NO research, OR investigations. I used to think they ran around in little yellow investigative cube trucks, because I spotted so many of them....out and about. But alas, all the yellow trucks have is info from Laredo to Chicago.

    Not sure Snopes even has that right. :D

    It does nothing to alleviate tooth decay, true - but that's not what I said it does. Alleviate means to relieve a condition already present, which artificial sweeteners cannot do. They can help prevent it from occurring, however, by reducing the sugars in the mouth upon which the tooth decay causing bacteria feed.
    Your opinion of diet drinks & fluoride is debatable, but that's not on topic.

    I stand corrected, but disagree in kind.....toward prevention.

    How is it not on topic? Diet drinks and aspartame is the topic?

    And fluoride is used in the water make up of said product. Your getting two for the price of one; toxic aspartame, and diet drinks made with toxic fluoridated water. Not good.

    The topic is an email filled with misinformation about aspartame. Flouride is a subject I don't know much about, and am not going to learn just yet - having enough trouble learning Windows 8!!!

    I believe that referring to this "email" as a hoax Is an incorrect assumption. A hoax is an intentional effort to deceive the reader(s). This appears to be a zealot that believes what is written. I have seen many such writings by people who have an almost religious type faith in their cause. IMHO

    What you are referring to is a paid advertisement for at the bottom of the snopes page. They obviously have a financial interest in Aspartame otherwise they would have not paid for the ad. Furthermore it would be to their benefit to reference links that agree with their position.
    I am not trying to discredit the information presented just pointing out that it is one sided.

    I really don't care to debate the pros and cons of Aspartame because that was not the purpose of my response; however, I feel compelled to comment on your "why not" reasoning.

    Aspartame does not reduce tooth decay. The absence of sugar can help reduce the rate of tooth decay.

    As the Mayo Foundation points out:

    "They don't contribute" does not translate to "reduced tooth decay"

    Also, Aspartame does not effect weight loss. The absence of sugar can help increase weight loss in the event that you were consuming sugar before.

    You seem to be advocating the use of Aspartame as a better alternative to using sugar which is most likely true as the negative effects of sugar are numerous and proven but your "why not" reasoning does not take into account a third option which is to consume neither.
    If you want to reduce the negative effects that sugar has on the body then buck up little camper and just stop consuming sugar. Your body will adapt and before long you will wonder why you needed it or a substitute.

    This one is avoidable so the decision is an easy one.:cool:
