Toxic Drugs Weapons

Aspartame is dangerous for your health

Because you care about your weight, you think that the substitutes, such as aspartame, are better than sugar for your health? Big mistake… 

 
At first glance, It's awesome: sweeten your mouth without suffering the inconvenience of calories! However, The list of complaints related to this sugar substitute continues to grow, particularly in the United States, where we observe a significant consumption of products “diet”. Worst, Aspartame consumption is now known to cause side effects ranging from a simple headache to brain tumors.

Indeed, US statistics from National Cancer Institute show alarming rise in brain tumors: in 1983, 2,1 % des cancers chez les hommes se situaient au cerveau; in 1987, l’incidence était passée à 8,1 % pour ces messieurs, grimpant même à 11,7 % chez les femmes!

En creusant la question, les chercheurs ont constaté que cette forte hausse coïncide justement avec l’apparition, in 1983, des boissons gazeuses édulcorées à l’aspartame. Le débat pour son retrait du marché n’a pas cessé depuis.

Additif ou drogue

 

L’aspartame a été découvert par hasard en 1965 au laboratoire Searle, in the USA, par un scientifique qui cherchait à mettre au point un médicament contre les ulcères. En goûtant une pincée de sa poudre, il se serait rendu compte qu’elle avait un goût étonnamment sucré.
Cette découverte était une bénédiction pour l’industrie alimentaire, qui cherchait une solution de rechange aux cyclamates et à la saccharine, interdits dans les aliments par le gouvernement depuis que des études chez les animaux ont révélé qu’ils entraînaient des cancers. Au Canada, ces deux édulcorants sont tout de même disponibles en sachets dans les épiceries, les pharmacies et les restaurants.

L’aspartame a été autorisé dans les aliments secs en 1981, then in soft drinks in 1983.
Marketed under the name NutraSweet and Equal, aspartame is a genetically modified synthetic sweetener composed of two amino acids (protein components), phenylalanine and aspartic acid. Its sweetening power is 200 times higher than that of sucrose. However, the progression of aspartame rather leaves a bitter taste in the mouth.
It even looks like a conspiracy, since the Pentagon has already named aspartame in a chemical weapons inventory! 

In fact, both G.D. Searle, the aforementioned chemical and pharmaceutical company, that monsanto, now owner and manufacturer of aspartame, have tangible links with the manufacture of chemical weapons.

 

Costly studies

 

It's in 1974 that aspartame is approved for the first time. Following two studies showing that this substance causes tumors in laboratory animals, the authorization is revoked. These studies have never been refuted since. In September 1980, after deliberation, a committee of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) speaks out against aspartame. Four months later, G.D. Searle submits ten new studies “cans”, which will tip the scales in favor of aspartame with a vote: that of Commissioner Arthur Hayes… who will later be hired by Searle! According to Dr Adrian Gross, former FDA toxicologist, these studies are rubbish. He noted that animal deaths were hidden, that tumors have not been reported and, in some cases, that they were even extracted from the animal which, his, was returned to the study!

In 1996, the doctor and professor Ralph G. Walton, du collège de médecine de la Northeastern Ohio Universities, décide d’analyser l’ensemble des études scientifiques reliées à la consommation d’aspartame. Ses observations parlent d’elles-mêmes: from 174 études analysées, 74 étaient financées par l’industrie de l’aspartame, and 100 % d’entre elles concluaient qu’il n’y avait aucun problème avec ce produit! However, sure 90 études indépendantes (non financées), 83 (92 %) ont plutôt relevé un ou plusieurs problèmes reliés à l’usage de cet édulcorant. L’aspartame est l’objet de controverse depuis son apparition; even its approval is more political than scientific.

But with revenues in the billions of dollars a year, the Monsanto company is not ready to let go. 

Disturbing side effects

 

The list of side effects associated with the consumption of aspartame is very long. Moreover, according to Headache magazine in November 1997, particularly sensitive people may experience effects with very low doses: chewing gum, for example, can cause a headache! In 1994, the FDA had already accumulated nearly 7000 side effect complaints related to aspartame (the organization no longer wants to compile complaints). The most frequent are: headache (which has been confirmed by several studies), dizziness, blurred vision, mood changes, stomach pain and muscle cramps. In the USA, some pilots have even lost their license for showing these symptoms within hours of ingesting aspartame drinks. Communiqués to this effect have been issued in U.S. bulletins.. Air Force and U.S. Navy afin de prévenir le personnel de ce risque.

Parmi les autres symptômes figurent les dépressions, les pertes de mémoire, les douleurs aux jointures, les troubles menstruels, les crises d’épilepsie et même quelques décès! Et il ne s’agit là que d’une fraction des effets actuellement associés à la consommation d’aspartame, puisque la majorité des gens n’ont pas encore fait le lien entre leurs problèmes de santé et ce produit. Même s’ils le font, only a small percentage of people and healthcare professionals will take the time to report it to government authorities.

In 1991, the National Institute of Health has published a bibliography, Adverse Effects of Aspartame, listing no less than 167 reasons to avoid aspartame. A recent study also showed that aspartame, just like sugar, causes calciuria, that is, loss of calcium in the urine.

Aspartame and weight gain

 

Since aspartame contains the same number of calories as sugar, but that its sweetening power is 200 times higher, how the pancreas reacts when the tongue senses it? Could it be that he is sending a massive dose of insulin to counteract this deceptive feeling?? Would the resulting drop in sugar make you want to eat again?? According to neuroscientist Richard Wurtman, consuming high doses of sweeteners such as aspartame would actually cause “crises” sugar. The American Cancer Society confirmed this irony after following 80 000 women for six years. Among those who gained weight during this period, women who used artificial sweeteners took more than those who did not.

Another study in a small group of dieting women shows that they tend to eat more during the days after ingesting sugary drinks with aspartame, compared to the ingestion of naturally sweetened drinks (study by J.H. Lavin and his collaborators, published in january 1997 dans une revue scientifique internationale sur l’obésité). Même le simple fait de mâcher de la gomme sucrée à l’aspartame augmenterait l’appétit. Quelques autres études, toutefois, n’ont pu démontrer ces effets.

On suppose par ailleurs que les gens qui consomment des produits diètes auraient tendance à être moins vigilants: un faux sentiment de sécurité pourrait les porter à manger des gâteries, ici et là, puisqu’ils ont déjàéconomisé”… Dans toute cette controverse, une chose est sûre: sweeteners like aspartame maintain the taste of sugar and do not change your eating habits, the only guarantee of lasting weight loss.

Diabetics, abstain

 

According to Dr H. J. Roberts, an endocrinologist who has seen “green and unripe” with aspartame, this sugar substitute would make it harder to control blood sugar in diabetics, causing more frequent attacks of hypoglycemia and worsening diabetic complications (cataracts, retinopathies, neuropathies, etc.). Moreover, in a number of his patients, they were incorrectly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis; the doctors in error did not know that ingestion of aspartame on a regular basis causes similar symptoms.

What to do?

· Near 2 % of the population is carrier, without knowing, one of the two genes that cause phenylketonuria. Or, aspartame contains phenylalanine, an amino acid that these people cannot use due to a lack of a specific enzyme. These people should avoid all products that contain it – dont l’aspartame – at the risk of suffering seizures and severe mental disorders. In doubt, avoid consuming aspartame.
· If you have a persistent health problem and use products sweetened with aspartame (diet drinks, chewing gums, sachets, yogourts, etc.), stop using it completely for a month to see if your symptoms improve.
· You will need to carefully read the labels of any products you purchase, because aspartame has seeped all over the place (see down there). In my opinion, plus vous vous tiendrez loin de cet additif, mieux vous vous porterez.

Où se cache-t-il?

In 1992, l’aspartame apparaissait dans plus de 4200 produits alimentaires aux États-Unis: certaines marques de crème glacée, yogourts, puddings, confitures, desserts préparés, céréales à déjeuner, vinaigrettes et dîners surgelés en contiennent. Les pires: les boissons gazeuses “diet”, les sachets de sucre Égal et la gomme à mâcher sans sucre. Les médicaments peuvent aussi en contenir, de même que le psyllium sucrésans sucreet les suppléments de vitamines croquables pour enfants. Surveillez les étiquettes.
Aspartame is poorly stable in liquids and decomposes after exposure to high temperatures – what happens when you heat aspartame, that it is added to hot liquids (café) or when stored for long periods at room temperature. Product degradation leads to, among others, methanol formation, which subsequently breaks down into formaldehyde (known carcinogen), formic acid and diketopiperazine (DKP), all responsible for brain tumors.
