Beware of diet drinks......

    In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick, she had stomach
    spasms, she was having a hard time getting around, to walk was a major
    chore. It took everything she had just to get out of bed, she was in so much
    pain. By March 2002, she had undergone biopsies, and was on 24 various
    prescription medications. The doctors could not figure out what was wrong
    with her. She was in so much pain, and so sick, she knew she was dying. She
    put her house, bank accounts, life insurance etc. in her oldest daughters
    name, and made sure her younger children were to be with her oldest
    daughter. She wanted her
    last hooray, so she planned a trip to FL (basically in a wheelchair) for
    March 22nd.

    On March 19th I called her to ask her how one of her tests went, and she
    said they didn't find anything on the test, but they believe she had MS. I
    thought, oh, my....then I recalled
    an article a friend of mine emailed to me...and I asked her:
    "Do you drink Diet pop?"
    She told me yes, as a matter of fact she was getting ready to crack one open
    that moment. I told her not to open it, and stop drinking the diet pop, and
    I emailed her the following article. She called me within 32 hours after our
    phone conversation and told me she stopped drinking the diet pop, and she
    can walk...she went up the stairs, and the muscle spasms went away. She said
    she didn't feel 100% but sure felt a lot better. She told me she was going
    to her doctors with this article and would call me back when she got home.
    She called me, and her doctor was amazed, he is going to call all of his MS
    patients to find out if they consumed artificial sweetener. In a nutshell,
    she was being poisoned by the aspartame in the diet soda, dying a slow
    death. When she got to FL March 22nd, all she had to take was one pill, and
    that was a pill for poisoning. She is well on her way to recovery and she is
    walking!!!!! No wheelchair!!!! This article saved her life!!!!

    The life saving article:
    If it says "SUGAR FREE," on the label, DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!!
    I have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on
    "ASPARTAME" marketed as 'NutraSweet', 'Equal', and 'Spoonful'.
    In the keynote address by the EPA, it was announced that in the United
    States in 2001 there is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic
    lupus, that it was hard to understand what toxin was causing this to be
    I stood up and said that I was there to lecture on exactly that subject. I
    will explain why Aspartame is so dangerous: When the temperature of this
    sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to
    CAformaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic
    acidosis. (Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants.) The
    methanol toxicity mimics among other conditions, multiple sclerosis. People
    were being diagnosed with having multiple sclerosis in error. The multiple
    sclerosis is not a death sentence, where methanol toxicity is!
    Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis,
    especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. The victim usually does
    not know that the aspartame is the culprit. He or she continues its use,
    aggravating the lupus to such a degree that it may become life-threatening.
    We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptomatic once taken off
    diet sodas.
    In the case of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, (when in reality,
    the disease is methanol toxicity), most of the symptoms disappear. We've
    seen many cases where vision returned and hearing improved markedly. This
    also applies to cases of tinnitus. During a lecture I said "If you are using
    ASPARTAME (NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.) and you suffer from
    fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs,
    cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression,
    anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss-you probably
    People were jumping up during the lecture saying, "I've got some of these
    symptoms: Is it reversible?" Yes! Not drinking diet sodas and keeping an eye
    out for aspartame on food labels, yes! We have a very serious problem. A
    stranger came up to Dr. Espisto (one of my speakers) and me and said:
    "Could you tell me why so many people seem to be coming down with MS?"
    During a visit to a hospice, a nurse said that six of her friends, who were
    heavy Diet Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond
    coincidence! Diet Coke and
    Diet Pepsi etc. IS NOT A DIET PRODUCT!
    The Congressional Record states that it makes you crave carbohydrates and
    will make you FAT. The formaldehyde stores in the fat cells, particularly in
    the hips and thighs. Once off these products with no significant increase in
    exercise, etc., Dr. Roberts in his lecture stated that he had patient who
    lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period. Aspartame is especially
    dangerous for diabetics. We found that physicians would believe that they
    have a patient with retinopathy, when in fact the symptoms are caused by
    aspartame. The aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control. Thus
    diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid
    and phenylalanine are neurotoxic without the other amino acids found in
    protein. Thus it passes the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the neurons
    of the brain, causing in diabetics (as well as in patients not suffering
    from diabetes) various kinds of brain damage, seizures, depression, manic
    depression, panic attacks, rage, violence. (The Aspartame in thousands of
    pallets of diet Coke and diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in
    the Gulf War, may be partially to
    blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome.) Dr. Roberts warns that it can
    cause birth defects i.e. mental retardation if taken at the time of
    conception and early pregnancy.
    Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should NOT be
    given NutraSweet. I can relate different case histories of children having
    mal seizures and other
    disturbances being on NutraSweet. Unfortunately it is not always easy to
    convince a mother that aspartame is to blame for her child's illness. Only
    by trial and success will she
    be able to warn other mothers to take their children's health in their own
    hands. Stevia, a sweet herb, NOT A MANUFACTURED ADDITIVE, which helps in the
    metabolism of sugar (which would be ideal for diabetics) has now been
    approved as a dietary supplement by the FDA. For years the FDA has outlawed
    this sweet food because of their loyalty to MONSANTO.

    Books on this subject are available:
    written by Dr. Russell Blayblock
    (Health Press 1-800-643-2665)

    written by DR H. J. Roberts, also a diabetic specialist.

    These two doctors will be posting a position paper with some case histories
    on the deadly effects of Aspartame on the Internet. According to the
    Conference of the American College
    of Physicians "we are talking about a plague of neurological diseases caused
    by this deadly poison." Here is the problem:
    There were Congressional Hearings when aspartame was included in 100
    different products. Since this initial hearing, here have been two
    subsequent hearings, but to no avail. Nothing has been done. The drug and
    chemical lobbies have very deep pockets. Now there are over 5,000 products
    containing this chemical, and the PATENT HAS EXPIRED!!!!! I assure you,
    MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame knows how deadly it is.
    They fund among others, the American Diabetes Association, the American
    Dietetic Association, the Conference of the American College of Physicians.
    This has been exposed in the New York Times - to no avail. These
    Associations cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO
    because they take money from the food industry and have to endorse their
    products. Senator Howard Hetzenbaum wrote a bill that would have warned all
    infants, pregnant mothers and children of the dangers of aspartame. The bill
    would have also instituted independent studies on the problems existing in
    the population (seizures, changes in brain chemistry, changes neurological
    and behavioral; symptoms).
    It was killed by the powerful drug and chemical lobbies, letting loose the
    hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting public.
