- The recent furor over Vioxx increasing myocardial infarction
and cerebrovascular accident rates should also have indicted its partner
in crime: Aspartame. Aspartame has long been known for its causation of
a remarkable increase in heart attack rates and cerebrovascular accident
type occurrences. The damage from Aspartame's highly synergized: methanol-formaldehyde-formic
acid-carbon monoxide toxic axis (The methanol toxic axis, i.e. Hangovers!),
which damage includes: blood vessel autoimmunity, super oxide free radical
generation, and mitochondrial damage: is far worsened by the heavy metal
poisons like Aluminum, lead, and mercury etc.
- Aspartame also chelates the toxic heavy metals from the
ingested food and drink, as well as from the very containers from which
it is served in, and carries them directly into the body as their highly
absorbed chelated heavy metal forms. Aluminum is not even digestively absorbed,
unless chelated. Back before Rumsfeld and Reagan, when the FDA was still
functional: the FDA told Searle the Agency would never allow Aspartame
to be marketed because its extreme chelation of toxic heavy metals into
the human body was an insolvable problem, and the chelation problem alone
was sufficient reason to never allow Aspartame to be marketed! Billions
of cans are now sold annually!
- The heavy metal poisonings themselves are so atherogenic
that intravenous chelation therapy to carry poisonous heavy metals out
of the body is the most remarkably effective and very physiological cure
for severe arteriosclerosis, in and of itself. With the heavy metal poisonings
eliminated via the IV chelation treatments, the body is then left free
to physiologically heal its own blood vessels from arteriosclerotic damage.
- The heavy metal poisonings, the methanol toxic axis,
and the mitochondrial damage from Aspartame all lead to the generation
of enormous amounts of super oxide free radicals, and thereby cause premature
aging, diabetes, etc. Vioxx causes the cholesterol in the atherogenic
LDL cholesterol form to be far more subject to rapid oxidization to the
highly atherogenic oxycholesterol by the oxidizing effects of the super
oxide free radicals generated from the many toxicities of Aspartame: Making
the two, Very Dangerous partners in cardiovascular crime!
- There are several additional poisonings built into the
Aspartame molecule. When additive in effect with the mentioned they could
make the results from almost any pharmaceutical preparation unpredictable,
ore even dangerous. There will be no safety of use so long as dangerous
chemicals like Aspartame, MSG, or fluoride are in our food or water! Saccharin
is perfectly safe: Has been on the market over 100 years, has caused no
epidemics! The Amino acid taurine combines well with saccharin to give
a sugary flavor with no bitterness. Stevia in combination with saccharin
gives an extremely sugary flavor. Low calorie sweeteners are by definition
excitotoxins. (Excitotoxins are products that stimulate the neurons of
the brain to death causing brain damage - Excitotoxins: The Taste That
Kills by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., www.russellblaylockmd.com
- I believe the healthiest diet consists of fruit, nuts,
grains and vegetables, simply and wholesomely prepared. That does not include
any artificial flavorings, and certainly excludes blister poisons like
fluoride, and excitotoxins like MSG, and Aspartame from our food and water!
Anything which causes severe mitochondrial damage, as does Aspartame will
prematurely age the organism and complicate and impair the best results
of about every conceivable medicine.
- More in depth information can be obtained from the many
excellent texts available by excellent authors like Dr Hyman Roberts, Aspartame
Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, www.sunsentpress.com and Dr. Russell Blaylock
as mentioned above. Many of my reports are on www.dorway.com My next
forthcoming book: "In the Present Darkness: It Happened to We Scientists
Who First Spoke Out Against Aspartame" will go into great detail and
provide a fascinating setting. www.mercola.com is excellent on Sucralose,
the DDT like chlorocarbon poison they are replacing Aspartame with in Coke
and Pepsi products. The two toxicity studies I have in mind from Sucralose
are that it calcifies the kidneys, and shrinks the thymus 50% (the source
of your immune system) It looks like they are not going to allow any non
toxic sweeteners on the market.

movie about aspartame, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World. You can contact
firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy. He is a victim of aspartame
with Lou Gehrig symptoms.
