- Dear Rachelle:
- Cynthia Crossen wrote a book called "The Tainted
Truth: The Manipulation of Fact in America. She even tells how polls
are altered. She also says; "The road to hell was paved with the
flood of corporate research dollars which in 1991 had burgeoned to over
$2.1 billion. Researchers are working for people who don't like negative
findings and who aren't likely to fund further research by those who produce
them. .." "In today's corporate-dominated information market
truth has become to belong to those who commission it."
- With so much fraud in science today the only way to get
the truth is from independent researchers who aren't paid by industry to
defend their products. In fact, ILSI or Life Sciences is a front research
group funded by such people as Coke, Pepsi, NutraSweet, etc. You have
to be willing to say their product is safe or you are denied research
funds. Here's an example with Dr. Richard Wurtman in the 8 month investigation
of NutraSweet by United Press International.
- http://www.mpwhi.com/upi_1987_aspartame_report.pdf Note
- Dr. Richard Wurtman admits he was threatened by Searle
if he did studies on aspartame and seizures his research funds would be
denied. Gordon also says that Searle didn't even deny threatening him.
Indeed, Dr. Wurtman's research funds were denied.
- Today, MIT gets research funds but Dr. Wurtman no longer
speaks out on aspartame. However, he left quite a paper trail including
a book he edited called: "Dietary Phenylalanine and Brain Function".
- Phenylalanine in aspartame as an isolate and at 50% of
the molecule is neurotoxic, floods the brain lowering the seizure threshold
and depleting serotonin. Lowered serotonin triggers psychiatric and behavioral
problems. Aspartame interacts with all antidepressants.
- Did Diet Coke pass Pepsi to become No. 2 soda in US?
I personally don't believe it. No amount of manipulation could convince
me that Diet Coke whose sales have tumbled in past years suddenly
- becomes #2 soda in US. However, on the other hand, I
do admit that because aspartame is so addicting it's difficult to get
consumers off of it. One Marriott waitress said, "If you have three
diet soda drinkers on the left and three Coke Classic drinkers on the right,
the diet Coke drinkers will consume three to every one the Coke drinkers
consume. Diet Coke is their cash cow! The free methyl alcohol in aspartame
is classified as a narcotic. It causes chronic methanol poisoning. This
affects the dopamine system of the brain and causes the addiction. Some
consumers say it's easier to get off cocaine than it is to get off aspartame.
So the only real
- competition would be a company selling cocaine or heroin.
- So, even though there is a 1000 page medical text on
the subject, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, www.sunsentpress.com
by H. J. Roberts, M.D. and the Internet has millions of web sites and
articles by physicians warning people off this chemical poison, the consumers
are addicts,and getting them off cold turkey is very hard to do. We have
an Aspartame Information list on www.mpwhi.com
- where we help victims. Essence in Asheville, N.C. also
takes consumers suffering from aspartame addiction. Here is Dr. H. J.
Roberts article on the subject: http://www.dorway.com/tldaddic.html This
chemical poison was approved by politics because it couldn't be proven
safe by science. Even the FDA tried to have the company indicted for fraud
because they were caught doing such things as filtering out what they didn't
want FDA to see, and excising brain tumors from rats, putting them back
in the study and resurrecting them when they died.
- All components of aspartame are a poison. You have aspartic
acid, 40%, which is an excitotoxin: "Excitotoxins: The Taste That
Kills" by neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., - product that stimulates
the neurons of the brain to death causing brain damage. Then there is
a methyl ester which immediately becomes free methyl alcohol, and converts
to formaldehyde and formic acid ,causing metabolic acidosis. The phenylalanine
at 50% as mentioned above is a neurotoxin that depletes serotonin causing
psychiatric and behavioral problems. Because it causes damage to the mitochondria
or powerhouse of the cell it interacts with all antidepressants.
- The whole molecule breaks down to DKP, a brain tumor
- Aspartame is genetically engineered with E. Coli bacteria.
It goes from the toilet to the sanitation department where this E coli
bacteria is bought according to Dr. Bill Deagle.
- I guess Coke needed some good publicity since a new study
linked diet drinks with heart attacks and stokes. I especially liked Melanie
Warner's article, "Have A coke and a Stroke!" This was the third
time a study has linked diet drinks with cardiac problems.
- How does it happen? Aspartame triggers an irregular
heart rhythm and interacts with all cardiac medication. It damages the
cardiac conduction system and causes sudden death. Read some of the articles
about this from the experts: http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_and_sudden_death.htm
- Coke not only has to overcome the bad publicity that
their product causes consumers to have a heart attack or a stroke or even
drop dead, but right at the time that Coke is engaged in their new advertisements.
Have you seen the red heart on packs of Diet Coke
- encouraging Diet Coke for heart health! There is a
whole chapter in Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic of the heart problems
triggered by aspartame! There is a law against stumbling the public with
lies. It's Title 18, section 1001, the same law that the FDA used in 1977
when they tried to have the manufacturer of aspartame, G. D. Searle, indicted
for fraud. So while Coke is promoting Diet Coke for healthy hearts, consumers
can die from aspartame's effect on the heart.

- Diet Coke Passes Pepsi As Number Two In America
- By Jeremiah McWilliams
- The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
- As the soft drinks industry tries to recover from a long
slide, Coca-Cola Co. has new bragging rights in its rivalry with PepsiCo.
- Coca-ColaAtlanta-based Coca-Cola Co.now has the top two
soft drinks in the country.
- Diet Coke passed Pepsi-Cola in sales last year to become
the second-largest soft drink in America, trade journal Beverage Digest
says. That gives Coca-Cola the top two soft drinks for the first time since
Beverage Digest has compiled market share data.
- Sales of Coca-Cola and Diet Coke dipped by half a percentage
point and one point, respectively, in 2010. But sales of Pepsi-Cola fell
- Beyond the sales decline, Credit Suisse analyst Carlos
Laboy said he worries about the "morale implications for PepsiCo's
beverage people" of seeing the company's core soft drink drop to No.
- Sarah Walraven, who lives in Paulding County, drinks
Diet Coke instead of coffee in the morning. She picked up the habit in
college. The diet version was an acquired taste at first.
- "Now, I can't stand the taste of regular (Coke),"
said Walraven, 24. "There's no turning back."
- Soft drink companies need more devoted fans like Walraven.
Sales shrank for the sixth straight year, although the decline was less
dramatic than in 2009, according to Beverage Digest. Texas-based Dr Pepper
Snapple Group and Coca-Cola both took market share from PepsiCo.
- The Coca-Cola brand accounted for 17 percent of the nation's
soft-drink sales last year, followed by Diet Coke's 9.9 percent and Pepsi-Cola's
9.5 percent. Rounding out the top five: Mountain Dew at 6.8 percent and
Dr Pepper at 6.3 percent.
- With the volume declines of the last six years, the category
is roughly the size it was in 1996, according to Beverage Digest.
- PepsiCo still has large beverage brands, despite the
shrinkage of Pepsi-Cola. Mountain Dew is the No. 4 soft drink brand, and
Diet Mountain Dew, the eighth-largest, was the top performer among big
soft drink brands last year. It had sales growth of 5.8 percent.
- Diet beverages -- including the fast-growing Diet Mountain
Dew, Diet Dr Pepper and Coke Zero -- now represent 30 percent of the soft
drink business, according to Beverage Digest.
- The top 10 soft drink/sodas in America are: Coke, Diet
Coke, Pepsi-Cola, Mountain Dew, Dr Pepper, Sprite, Diet Pepsi, Diet Mountain
Dew, Diet Dr Pepper and Fanta.
