    Need Another Reason to Avoid Aspartame? Here’s 92…

    Need Another Reason to Avoid Aspartame? Here’s 92…

    If your health practitioner prescribed a medicine with 92 (or more) side-effects – some of them serious – you’d no doubt be wary of taking it. And we wouldn’t blame you. But millions of people choose to drink soda containing aspartame – a dangerous sweetener with as many side-effects – on a regular basis, some of them consuming the highly-sweetened drink daily.

    Are you still drinking soda with aspartame?

    Perhaps they’d think again after setting eyes on a staggering list of 92 side-effects online, as disclosed in this article.

    Here are just some of the reactions experienced as a result of aspartame consumption:

    • Abdominal pain
    • Anxiety attacks
    • Arthritis
    • Asthma
    • Asthmatic reactions
    • Bloating, edema (fluid retention)
    • Blood sugar control problems (hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia)
    • Brain cancer (pre-approval studies in animals)
    • Breathing difficulties
    • Burning eyes or throat
    • Burning urination
    • Can’t think straight
    • Chest pains
    • Chronic cough
    • Chronic fatigue
    • Confusion
    • Death
    • Depression
    • Diarrhea
    • Dizziness
    • Excessive thirst or hunger
    • Fatigue
    • Feel unreal
    • Flushing of face
    • Hair Loss (baldness) or thinning of hair
    • Headaches/migraines/dizziness
    • Hearing loss

    • Irritability
    • “Like thinking in a fog”
    • Marked personality changes
    • Memory loss
    • Migraines and severe headaches
    • Muscle spasms
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Rapid heart beat
    • Slurring of speech
    • Swallowing pain
    • Vertigo
    • Vision loss
    • Weight gain

    Aspartame Disease is also believed to mimic the symptoms or worsen the following diseases.

    • Alzheimer’s disease
    • Arthritis
    • Birth defects
    • Chronic fatigue syndrome
    • Diabetes and diabetic complications
    • Epilepsy
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Lupus
    • Lyme disease
    • Lymphoma
    • Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS)
    • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
    • Parkinson’s Disease

    Next time you’re in the grocery store, will you rethink adding soda containing aspartame to your cart?

    Don’t forget to take a look at Dr Betty Martini’s recent blog post on the dangers of aspartame, too.

    Aspartame has been Renamed and is Now Being Marketed as a Natural Sweetener

    Eddie | 21 December 2011 | Health, News | Aspartame, G.D. Searle & Company, Natural Sweetener | 0 Comments

    Artificial sweeteners especially aspartame has gotten a bad rap over the years, most likely due to studies showing they cause cancer. But not to worry Ajinomoto the company that makesAspartame has changed the name to AminoSweet. It has the same toxic ingredients but a nice new sounding name. And if you or your child happens to be allergic to Aspartame, well don’t take it personally it’s just business.Despite the evidence gained over the years showing that aspartame is a dangerous toxin, it has remained on the global market . In continues to gain approval for use in new types of food despite evidence showing that it causes neurological brain damage, cancerous tumors, and endocrine disruption, among other things.Most consumers are oblivious to the fact that Aspartame was invented as a drug but upon discovery of its’ sweet taste was magically transformed from a drug to a food additive. HFA wants to warn our readers to beware of a wolf dressed up in sheep’s clothing or in this case Aspartame dressed up as Aminosweet.

    Over 25 years ago, aspartame was first introduced into the European food supply. Today, it is an everyday component of most diet beverages, sugar-free desserts, and chewing gums in countries worldwide. But the tides have been turning as the general public is waking up to the truth about artificial sweeteners like aspartame and the harm they cause to health. The latest aspartame marketing scheme is a desperate effort to indoctrinate the public into accepting the chemical sweetener as natural and safe, despite evidence to the contrary.Aspartame was an accidental discovery by James Schlatter, a chemist who had been trying to produce an anti-ulcer pharmaceutical drug for G.D. Searle & Company back in 1965. Upon mixing aspartic acid and phenylalanine, two naturally-occurring amino acids, he discovered that the new compound had a sweet taste. The company merely changed its FDA approval application from drug to food additive and, voila, aspartame was born.G.D. Searle & Company first patented aspartame in 1970. An internal memo released in the same year urged company executives to work on getting the FDA into the “habit of saying yes” and of encouraging a “subconscious spirit of participation” in getting the chemical approved.G.D. Searle & Company submitted its first petition to the FDA in 1973 and fought for years to gain FDA approval, submitting its own safety studies that many believed were inadequate and deceptive. Despite numerous objections, including one from its own scientists, the company was able to convince the FDA to approve aspartame for commercial use in a few products in 1974, igniting a blaze of controversy.

    In 1976, then FDA Commissioner Alexander Schmidt wrote a letter to Sen. Ted Kennedy expressing concern over the “questionable integrity of the basic safety data submitted for aspartame safety”. FDA Chief Counsel Richard Merrill believed that a grand jury should investigate G.D. Searle & Company for lying about the safety of aspartame in its reports and for concealing evidence proving the chemical is unsafe for consumption.The details of aspartame’s history are lengthy, but the point remains that the carcinogen was illegitimately approved as a food additive through heavy-handed prodding by a powerful corporation with its own interests in mind. Practically all drugs and food additives are approved by the FDA not because science shows they are safe but because companies essentially lobby the FDA with monetary payoffs and complete the agency’s multi-million dollar approval process.

    Changing aspartame’s name to something that is “appealing and memorable”, in Ajinomoto’s own words, may hoodwink some but hopefully most will reject this clever marketing tactic as nothing more than a desperate attempt to preserve the company’s multi-billion dollar cash cow. Do not be deceived.

    Update: As many comments are being posted by readers who are allergic to Aspartame we ask that you please forward this article to as many people as you can.Source:

    Aspartame is linked to leukemia and lymphoma in new landmark study on humans

    Wednesday, October 31, 2012 by: Ethan Evers

    (NaturalNews) As few as one diet soda daily may increase the risk for leukemia in men and women, and for multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma in men, according to new results from the longest-ever running study on aspartame as a carcinogen in humans. Importantly, this is the most comprehensive, long-term study ever completed on this topic, so it holds more weight than other past studies which appeared to show no risk. And disturbingly, it may also open the door for further similar findings on other cancers in future studies.

    The most thorough study yet on aspartame - Over two million person-years

    For this study, researchers prospectively analyzed data from the Nurses' Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study for a 22-year period. A total of 77,218 women and 47,810 men were included in the analysis, for a total of 2,278,396 person-years of data. Apart from sheer size, what makes this study superior to other past studies is the thoroughness with which aspartame intake was assessed. Every two years, participants were given a detailed dietary questionnaire, and their diets were reassessed every four years. Previous studies which found no link to cancer only ever assessed participants' aspartame intake at one point in time, which could be a major weakness affecting their accuracy.

    One diet soda a day increases leukemia, multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphomas

    The combined results of this new study showed that just one 12-fl oz. can (355 ml) of diet soda daily leads to:

    - 42 percent higher leukemia risk in men and women (pooled analysis)
    - 102 percent higher multiple myeloma risk (in men only)
    - 31 percent higher non-Hodgkin lymphoma risk (in men only)

    These results were based on multi-variable relative risk models, all in comparison to participants who drank no diet soda. It is unknown why only men drinking higher amounts of diet soda showed increased risk for multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Note that diet soda is the largest dietary source of aspartame (by far) in the U.S. Every year, Americans consume about 5,250 tons of aspartame in total, of which about 86 percent (4,500 tons) is found in diet sodas.

    Confirmation of previous high quality research on animals

    This new study shows the importance of the quality of research. Most of the past studies showing no link between aspartame and cancer have been criticized for being too short in duration and too inaccurate in assessing long-term aspartame intake. This new study solves both of those issues. The fact that it also shows a positive link to cancer should come as no surprise, because a previous best-in-class research study done on animals (900 rats over their entire natural lifetimes) showed strikingly similar results back in 2006: aspartame significantly increased the risk for lymphomas and leukemia in both males and females. More worrying is the follow on mega-study, which started aspartame exposure of the rats at the fetal stage. Increased lymphoma and leukemia risks were confirmed, and this time the female rats also showed significantly increased breast (mammary) cancer rates. This raises a critical question: will future, high-quality studies uncover links to the other cancers in which aspartame has been implicated (brain, breast, prostate, etc.)?

    There is now more reason than ever to completely avoid aspartame in our daily diet. For those who are tempted to go back to sugary sodas as a "healthy" alternative, this study had a surprise finding: men consuming one or more sugar-sweetened sodas daily saw a 66 percent increase in non-Hodgkin lymphoma (even worse than for diet soda). Perhaps the healthiest soda is no soda at all.
