THIS MESSAGE CAME FROM A CLOSE FAMILY MEMBER..........................



I know first hand about this, this is no joke, the back pain I had 3 years ago was VERY INTENSE & PAINFUL, after I quit drinking Diet Mt Dew, it gradually went away.
Terri


***********************************************
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 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 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 'NutraSweet,' '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 system! ic 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 (NutraSweet, 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 sto! re 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 o! f Aspart ame 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

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 due to the use of NutraSweet.

Unfortunately, it is not always easy to convince people that Aspartame is to blame for their child's illness. Stevia, which is a sweet herb, NOT A MANUFACTURED ADDITIVE, helps in the metabolism of sugar, which would be ideal for diabetics. It has now been approved as a dietary supplement by the FDA. It is known that for many years the FDA outlawed this true sweet food, due to their loyalty to MONSANTO Chemical Company.

FINALLY!!

Common sense prevails concerning DIET soda!

I've never cared for diet anything, and this helps reinforce my hatred of what I call: Fat people's dietary supplement'.

Diet sodas are the supposedly end-all-cure-all to weight gain.

People could not be more wrong!

Stop thinking diet sodas will cause weight gain, all they do is poison the body with ingredients that kill instead.

I'll stick to my cow, both chocolate and whole thank you very much!

At least I'll not expire from POISONS in my milk, unless they start marketing DIET MILK!

Please, never let THAT idea come to fruition

I never hopped onto the "diet foods/drinks" bandwagon because I noticed that when my sister in laws did they had SEVERE mood swings and mysterious physical ailments. I also flat refused to let anyone give that crap to my children although the main reason for NOT allowing my children to have it is because it USED to have a red warning that said "Not recommended for consumption by children under the age of 6" on it.

Thanks, Chef. Steevia is available through some health food stores and toy can grow it yourself, but you're right...it's not allowed on supermarket shelves.

It may be important to note, also, that Sucralose (Usually known by brand name Splenda) was actually invented more than 30 years ago, but because of concerns over it's processing (they use chlorine in a chemical process) they spent most of those 30 years testing to make sure it was a safe product. I feel I can rely on a product that's undergone 30 years of testing to prove it was safe before they put it on the market.

Yet for some reason, mots manufacturers (Pepsi, Coke, Adams) rely on Asparatame and Saccharine. I wonder why that could be?

Excellent info.!

There have been hints of toxicity due to aspartame degradation for a few years now. It's amazing that only just now it is being addressed.

Also of interest, some benzylic derivatives found in many beverages and food products as preservatives are unstable upon prolonged heating and exposure to UV light. Free-radical degradation products include the carcinogen benzene!

i have drank Diet Coke for 10 years...but i have noticed over the past few years a bit of memory loss...slurred speech...joint pain....and just my thought process in general. I just thought it was due to me getting older. I am by far over weight. I am pretty thin. I dont work out anymore cause my work is enough of a workout. My ex has always gotten onto to me about drinking Diet Soda because of the Aspartame...he would say.."You know that you are drinking the same stuff they use to embalm dead bodies with , right?" I thought nah! They have redone the formula or something like that scientific to be able to put it in Diet Soda's. So great! Now what do i drink....i even use Sweet-n-Low in my coffee.

Did i mention that in the past 8 years i am a 2 time cancer survivor. Neither are related to Family History. Any idea if the Aspartame couldve been a factor? Now you have me curious and i may do my own research.

Thanks

good lord maybe it was not a STROKE I had just diet coke over load? Hey does it kill the bad stuff if I eat M & M' s with it?

I dunno from back pain, because I live with that anyway, but aspartame also causes massive debilitating Migraines. I do know that one first hand.

Splenda, although it too is a chemically altered substance doesn't seem to have as many side effects and not nearly the bad taste. Let's hope that companies find this out and quickly.

This is all well and good, except that Snopes has labeled this all as a hoax.

Story here

I, myself, looked into this about 6 months ago and found that there has been many emails similar to this one you received and that none are based on facts.

I have said for years it is a dangerous product. My best friend in Australia used to drink at least two two litre bottles of diet soda a day. He contracted cancer in his kidneys and liver which I believe was directly due to his massive consumption of this chemical. He died at the age of 40 leaving three young girls fatherless.
I refuse to drink diet soda or eat any product that relies on aspartame. Although we could not prove that was the cause of his death we honestly believe that was why he died.

Hey Bald, I know for a FACT that it can damage your kidneys. My mothers doctor told her to quit drinking diet soda as it was the cause of her kidney pain and blood in her urine. She drank a lot of soda and it was all diet, she does not like regular soda, and would never of done it if the DOCTOR hadn't said it was going to KILL her. So snopes isnt' the final word on anything.
