- The letter below is from Sharon Bevins, Mission Possible,
Pound, Virginia. An extremely interesting point is she says leukemia should
be included in the diseases triggered by aspartame, not knowing that the
Italian Study has just proven the point. Here is her research: Regards,
- My name is Sharon Bevins, Mission Possible Pound, Virginia.
I have been an elementary teacher in Wise County, Virginia for twenty-four
years. I have been interested in nutrition for years, solely to obtain
better health for myself. I had gone through a traumatic divorce in l980
and ate very little food during this time. About the time I started a
teaching career, I came down with various ailments such as asthma, chronic
fatigue, chronic sinusitis, nasal polyps, etc. After being kept on steroids
for several years by regular doctors, I decided there had to be a better
way. I found a regular doctor in Marion, Virginia that practiced alternative
methods. He put me on a strict diet of nothing but limited meats, fruits,
vegetables and water. Basically, what I was doing was a low glycemic diet,
getting all of the toxins and poisons out of my body. He also put me on
an anti-yeast regimen and put me on some good high powered vitamins and
minerals. Within two months every symptom I had left me, and I was completely
well. Needless to say it took me years to adjust to a strict diet, but
now I do know how to get well!
- Two years ago, I met a couple of women at a natural health
food store, that basically changed my life. They introduced me to a book
called "Death by Diet" by a bio-chemist called Robert Barefoot.
The book explained all the functions that calcium did in the body and
that it could even prevent and cure cancer! I started giving some of this
information out to my friends and relatives who were sick with various
ailments, such as lupus, fibromyalgia, MS, different types of cancer.
I noticed that almost all on my list were women! I wondered why?
- I had read an article in a women's magazine that said
that women were dying across America at twice the rate of men on almost
every disease, especially autoimmune diseases. I started taking informed
surveys across the region I lived in (southwest Virginia and eastern Kentucky),
to see if I could come up with some answers. I knew that women were dieting
all the time, this was obvious! I found they were not big meat eaters
and milk drinkers like men, losing major sources of protein and calcium.
The women at the health food store showed me a brochure about the damaging
effects of aspartame in diet products. I knew it was bad, but I had no
idea at the time just how bad!!
- I started calling everyone on my list to ask if they
drank diet soda. Every one of them did, except one or two. Could there
be a connection? It seemed too coincidental. I stepped up my surveys
to see just how prevalent the usage of diet sodas were in this area, and
if all the symptoms on this brochure could be true!! What I discovered
was astounding to say the least! A cold chill went over me. American
was being poisoned on a national level!! How could this be? How could
something so devastating be on the market?
- I discovered regular doctors were recommending it, especially
for diabetics. Every person I met that had diabetes, drank diet soda.
They trusted their doctor and thought they were doing a good thing. Except
all the ones I talked to, were so sick and their blood sugar was out of
control. They were losing their eyesight, and attributing it to the diabetes.
I began to suspect diet soda was causing the diabetes epidemic. Heavy
people that you would think would have diabetes, that didn't drink diet
pop, didn't have diabetes. Skinny people who should not have it, were
drinking diet sodas and had diabetes. I started going back to every case
in my hometown of people that had died prematurely, and subsequently found
they were all heavy diet pop drinkers. Even my own best friend, who had
died at age 47, seven years ago with diabetes complications. I was just
now connecting the dots. Every case of cancer, big diet soda drinkers.
The list goes on and on. (I wouldn't have believed it, if I had not been
in the trenches working with so many people.)
- I know it is not the factor in every case of sickness.
Smoking and high sugar consumption plays a part. But diet soda consumption
seem to be the major factor! I was seeing women miscarrying, doing everything
they thought was healthy, but drinking diet sodas. I was seeing children
that I taught that were slow learners, or irreparably brain damaged where
they could learn nothing, after some investigation found that all the mothers
had drunk diet soda when they were pregnant. I think this makes the baby
be born with a compromised immune system, and the vaccinations are pushing
them over the edge to autism, asthma, diabetes, cancer and death!! This
would explain why many children escape the ill effects of the vaccines.
Most women that I see that are very sick, are smokers and soda drinkers.
- I believe I have added another disease to the 90 list
of symptoms: leukemia, (of course, most of these diseases are aspartame
poisoning, just misdiagnosed by regular doctors). I started noticing that
all the cases in my hometown where people had been diagnosed with leukemia
was connected to diet soda. Some were dead. Those that I could reach with
my information were getting well. When I hear of a celebrity or world leader
with a mysterious blood disorder, I automatically think: diet soda!!
(MARTINI: See news release on the recent new studies on aspartame showing
aspartame triggers leukemia, lymphoma and malignant brain tumors - http://www.wnho.net/new_aspartame_studies.htm)
- Arafat was never really diagnosed with anything for sure,
but I suspect it was diet soda. Whenever I see anyone with seizures, palsy,
paralysis in the legs, this is what I suspect. I started questioning people
in buggies that couldn't walk at various stores and guess what? All heavy
diet pop users, almost without exception. (IN my research on aspartame,
I discovered it destroyed the vitamin B complex, which controls the central
nervous system). One particular man in my hometown that I graduated with,
was so gaunt looking, palsied and almost near death, was on a feeding tube.
It took me awhile, but I discovered he lived on diet sodas for years.
My suspicions were true! One man, who had brain cancer, that I've been
working with, is now beating the cancer, but his short term memory is gone!!
The only liquid he put in his body was diet sodas for fifteen years!!!
- I am finding that women are substituting milk, for diet
soda. Certain patterns are emerging. They don't eat a good breakfast,
they don't eat many fruits and vegetables, they don't drink milk, eat little
meat, and are huge diet soda consumers. It is so addictive. I've met
women who told me, it would have to kill them before they would give it
up! It is their life!! I always tell them, it most assuredly will do
so. One man I met was drinking sixteen to eighteen a day!! Needless to
say, these people are all terribly sick. I am seeing some people who have
drink it for years, and seem to be in good health. They are meat eaters,
with the protein protecting them from the poison. A protein will kick
out sugars, toxins, lessening the damage to the cells. It keeps the toxins
from spiking the blood sugar.
- I read an article a few years ago, about an adjoining
county to mine, Harlan County, Ky. This area had the highest amount of
autoimmune diseases in the nation, and I found out recently they had the
highest rate of soda consumption, especially diet soda. No one has made
the connection until now.
- I met a nurse from this area that said MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
WAS RAMPANT. I have been trying to canvas this area and give out the brochures
about the effects of aspartame poisoning. I feel like this problem is
greater in this area of Appalachia than other parts of the nation, because
of the poor diets of the people, and the high amount of cigarette consumption.
- I have been to over 300 businesses, schools, libraries,
hospitals, etc. with the information on aspartame. The message is getting
out!! ....But knowing this information, I cannot stand idly by, and let
people suffer and die needlessly when I know the answer. .------ All I
know is that something drastic has to be done. I am doing my part!! "One
person can change a lot" has always been my motto.
- I am working on my degree in nutrition and have written
a book called the Alternative Underground, with a special section on "What's
Killing The Women?" I have people that are helping me give out these
brochures, so hopefully I won't have to fight this problem alone. I am
giving seminars in churches to spread the message. I pray that this research
will sound the alarm across the nation to get this horrific poison off
- Note from Martini: Sharon Bevins is the new Mission
Possible Pound Virginia. She did this research on her own. She was unaware
that aspartame can precipitate diabetes, simulates and aggravates diabetic
retinopathy and neuropathy, causes diabetics to go into convulsions, and
interacts with insulin. Some reports say 65% of diabetics have Alzheimers.
Memory loss is #9 on the FDA list of 92 symptoms.
