The truth about Aspartame and the question around population control. Are they connected?
Methanol, Aspartic acid, and Phenylalanine; It’s in over 5000 products
Can you imagine that our government has been allowing us to ingest these ingredients in our products for over 20 years? So what is this toxic soup we have been ingesting all these years; it’s Aspartame! Yup that low calorie sweetener your thoughtlessly top up your coffee with, you bake cookies for you children with and consume in many other products is made up of these three ingredients, methanol, aspartic acid and Phenylalanine, sounds healthy doesn’t it?
So what’s the big deal, well this crap is poison for one thing. Yup I said poison! The government has tricked us into believing this is a safe product. Their have been hundreds of studies proving these components can be the cause of serious health problems and yet we still can give it to our children. It seems when it comes to making money, we the public suffer by the choices people like Donald Rumsfeld have made. Like the choice to allow the placement of aspartame in over 5000 products when he was CEO of Cerly the company that manufactures aspartame. So why would the government lie to us the tax payers? Well, for one thing this product saves and makes millions of dollars each year and it has an added bonus of population control.
So why is it we don’t realize this product isn’t safe for us? Probably because we’ve been told over and over this is a safe and healthy product. We the public have been taught to listen to our elders and governmental leaders, this is programmed into us from the moments our mothers say be quiet in church, or during the news hour, and even when we are at school. We are not taught to think for our selves anymore, we are being taught to follow and observe. And, because of this we have forgotten to ask questions, we have forgotten to dig in a get dirty. We have forgotten that mother-nature has provided us with everything we need, we don’t need substitutes. The fact is mostly everything the government tells us is bullshit. They don’t care about us as individuals; we are all just votes for leadership and pawns used by the twisted world of politics to ensure Financial Control and self preservation. We are the sacrifices that they are willing to make. That is why aspartame as well as others including fluoride are being considered a type of population control by some. They are being passed as safe and healthy to us the public and yet new studies and old are showing a much different result. So the question is, are they stupid? Heartless? Or is their an ulterior motive they don’t want us to know?
Aspartame is in over 5000 products
Aspartame; what is it and what can it do to you?
Aspartame is made up of three things, the first is methanol. Methanol has been highly documented since the 70’s as causing Blindness. Also, when methanol breaks down in the body it breaks down into formaldehyde and formic acid. Formaldehyde is a deadly neurotoxin. An EPA assessment of methanol states that methanol "is considered a cumulative poison due to the low rate of excretion once it is absorbed. In the body, methanol is oxidized to formaldehyde and formic acid; both of these metabolites are toxic." They recommend a limit of consumption of 7.8 mg/day. A one-litre (approx. 1 quart) aspartame-sweetened beverage contains about 56 mg of methanol. Heavy users of aspartame-containing products consume as much as 250 mg of methanol daily or 32 times the EPA limit.
Symptoms from methanol poisoning include headaches, ear buzzing, dizziness, nausea, gastrointestinal disturbances, weakness, vertigo, chills, memory lapses, numbness and shooting pains in the extremities, behavioural disturbances, and neuritis. The most well known problems from methanol poisoning are vision problems including misty vision, progressive contraction of visual fields, blurring of vision, and obscuration of vision, retinal damage, and blindness. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen, causes retinal damage, interferes with DNA replication and causes birth defects.
The next is Phenylalanine, this is the toxic component seen in the childhood disorder called phenylketonuria or PKU. In this disorder, phenylalanine accumulates in the blood and hence brain, in very high concentrations. Carriers for the gene develop blood levels of phenylalanine twice as high as those of normal people, when consuming an equal amount of aspartame. Phenylalanine is also known for causing brain lesions and multiple tumours.
Aspartic acid another component of aspartame can cause serious chronic neurological disorders and a myriad of other acute symptoms. Aspartic acid is an amino acid. Taken in its free form (unbound to proteins) it significantly raises the blood plasma level of aspartate and glutamate. The excess aspartate and glutamate in the blood plasma shortly after ingesting aspartame or products with free glutamic acid (glutamate precursor), leads to a high level of those neurotransmitters in certain areas of the brain. The excess glutamate and aspartate slowly begin to destroy neurons. The large majority (75 percent or more) of neural cells in a particular area of the brain are killed before any clinical symptoms of a chronic illness are noticed.
In addition, the metabolic breakdown of aspartame yields about a dozen toxic compounds, some of which have been associated with cancer induction and alteration of brain function. The fewer of these toxins and foreign chemicals you expose your unborn child to the better. This also applies to newborns, toddlers, adolescents and adults as well. All of the toxins produced by ingesting aspartame must be detoxified and this puts a strain on the body's ability to cope.
Aspartame changes the ratio of amino acids in the blood, blocking or lowering the levels of serotonin, tyrosine, dopamine, norepinephrine, and adrenaline. Therefore, it is typical that aspartame symptoms cannot be detected in lab tests and on x-rays. Textbook disorders and diseases may actually be a toxic load as a result of aspartame poisoning.

What else can we do?
What can you do about aspartame side effects?
Set an example by changing your diet. Try to remember that almost every single product that is low sugar or sugar free has aspartame in it, so instead of buying diet just lower your natural sugar intake. And then….
- Tell everyone you know.
- Talk to the schools and day care centers. Offer to speak at parent-teachers meetings.
- Contact your local, state, and Federal government representatives.
- If you see someone with a diet drink, ask if they have had any of the typical aspartame side effects.
- Spread the word at your work.
- Distribute the Aspartame Consumer Safety Network and Pilot's Hotline
- Tell your doctor about the scientific research available proving the negative side effects of aspartame.
- Register a complaint with the FDA, the FAA, the NutraSweet Company about aspartame poisoning.
- Return all food products with aspartame, opened or unopened, to your grocer. Tell him/her the products make you sick. The grocer can return them to the manufacturer for a store refund. The manufacturer should get the message. So, will the grocer.
- Spread the word on computer networks.
- Publish articles in newsletters at your church, place of work, or neighborhood association.
- Set a personal example for health and wellness.
