Natural Society have been warning us to the dangers of Aspartame for some time. Aspartame is a very dangerous artificial sweetener found in many foods like soft drinks, chewing gum, breakfast cereals and jams. Now, Aspartame is being re-branded as AminoSweet.
Aspartame is often a substitute to sugar and marketed as Nutrasweet or Equal. It is an excitotoxin that has harmful effects to the brain and body. Its use is controversial since the 1980s, when Donald Rumsfeld, CEO of Searle, pushed for its approval on the market. With the name being changed now, the FDA wants to fool many people to buy this product.
Saccharin before had to be made with a label mandated by Congress which said: “Use of this product may be hazardous to your health. This product contains saccharin, which has been determined to cause cancer in laboratory animals”. Dr. Adrian Gross, the FDA’s toxicologist, told the Congress that Aspartame definitely causes brain tumors and brain cancer and that it violated the Delaney Amendment. Besides cancer, aspartame has been linked with the following diseases:
– Headaches– Memory loss– Seizures– Vision loss– Coma– ADD– Lupus– Fibromyalgia– Muscular dystrophy– Alzheimer’s– Chronic fatigue– Diabetes– Depression-
Aspartame is dangerous
European scientists have been warning us about the dangers of Aspartame since 2005, so why is it still allowed on our food, even partly? Because of a politically biased FDA, then influenced by Rumsfeld and his corporation, said that the European Food Safety Authority, the EFSA, has not enough evidence on Aspartame, and it was not conclusive enough to prove it was a dangerous substance, so that there was no “further review [on an] earlier scientific opinion on the safety of aspartame or [reason] to revise the Acceptable Daily Intake.”
The main issue with Aspartame is that it eventually breaks down into Phenylalanine among other things. This causes a disorder called Phenylketonuria, which affects 1 in 15000 people in the world. Their bodies can’t metabolize synthesized phenylalanine, so it builds up and can lead to mental retardation, seizures or brain damage. People suffering from Phenylketonuria (PKU) are called phenylketonurics. Their protein intake should be constantly monitored. They are warned about consumption of products containing Aspartame – that’s why there are “Phenyketonurics – contains phenylalanine” labels.
And as if all of this is not enough, Aspartame is chemically addictive to the body like other drugs. That is exactly the reason why food makers put it in their products – so you can buy more!
Aspartame or AminoSweet – it’s very dangerous. Watch out on the food labels. If you need something sweet, eat honey, apple sauce, ingredients which are not GMO and are eaten raw.
