Manufacturers of Colloidal Silver, Colloidal Gold & Colloidal Copper


NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful etc.

I have mentioned this artificial sweetener a couple of times in past issues. The intention was to follow up with more. Well, the time has come. First, I came across a website that was pro aspartame, that tried to explain how 'misguided' we all were, in condemning this product.

Then, I found a website that showed both sides. A total of 166 peer-reviewed reports. Some of them were industry sponsored [74], and some were independent [91].

Will it surprise anyone to find that all the industry sponsored reports claimed aspartame to be safe? No?

Then it will not surprise anyone that 84 of the 91 independent reports clearly identified problems. What about the remaining 7 reports? Well, here is a surprise - 6 of the 7 reports were from the FDA and the last one was an independent literature review of industry sponsored research. What makes the FDA independent? Their controversial involvement in 'hand-holding' with Monsanto and NutraSweet are a matter of public record! It is because of their 'loyalty' to Monsanto, the perfectly natural sweetener, STEVIA, has only now been approved as a dietary supplement. For years, the FDA has outlawed this product from nature, so that Monsanto could sell aspartame, without competition! How is that for 'independent' reporting?

I cannot give you the full list of the independent reports. It takes 9 pages just to list them by title/author/funding source. These reports start in 1970 and the last one was published in 1998. They are from all over the world - the US, obviously, Japan, Mexico, Spain, UK, India, Norway, Canada, Denmark and Italy. Most of the reports were funded by Universities or Medical centres like the Mt Sinai Medical Centre. As such, all are in the language of science.

The following report is quoted directly from the book Electrical Nutrition, by Denie and Shelley Hiestand, ISBN 0-9684928-1-9. Although it is in layman's language and is also emotional, it sums up the findings of the experts reasonably well. Perhaps some of the conclusions could be 'watered down' a little and the emotional drama could be less. But hey, we are trying to make a point here. If it stops just one more person from taking this poison, it will be worth the trouble.

"Aspartame - The Silent Killer

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, they announced that there was an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus, and they did not understand what toxin was causing this to be rampant across the Untied States. I explained that I was there to lecture on exactly that subject.

When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in Aspartame converts to formaldehyde [Formaldehyde was the chemical used by undertakers to preserve the body prior to burial] 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 multiple sclerosis; thus people were being diagnosed with having multiple sclerosis in error.

The multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, where methanol toxicity is. In the case of systemic lupus, we are finding it has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially [among] Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. Also, with methanol toxicity, the victims usually drink three to four 12 oz, cans of them per day, some even more. In the cases of systemic lupus, which is triggered by Aspartame, the victim usually does not know that Aspartame is the culprit. The victim continues its use, aggravating the lupus to such a degree that it sometimes becomes life threatening. When we get people off the Aspartame, those with systemic lupus usually become asymptomatic. Unfortunately, we can not reverse this disease.

On the other hand, in the case of those diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (when in reality, the disease is methanol toxicity), most of the symptoms disappear. We have seen cases where their vision has returned and even their hearing has returned. 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 fibro-myalgia 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 have Aspartame Disease!"

We have a serious problem. Even a stranger came up to Dr. Espito (one of my speakers) and myself and said, "Can you tell me why so many people seems 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.

Here is the problem. There were Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was included in 100 different products. Since this initial hearing, there 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!!!!! Aspartame can be found in:

  • Instant breakfasts, gelatine desserts, soft drinks and pop
  • Breath mints, juice beverages, tabletop sweeteners
  • Cereals, laxatives, tea beverages
  • Sugar-free chewing gum, multivitamins, instant coffees and teas
  • Cocoa mixes, milk pints, topping mixes
  • Coffee beverages, pharmaceuticals & health supplements, wine coolers, frozen desserts, shake mixes, yoghurt, etc.
  • Even in most sugar-free lollies and sweets at the Health Food stores'!

At the time of the first hearing, people were going blind. The methanol in Aspartame converts to formaldehyde in the retina of the eye. Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of drugs as cyanide and arsenic - DEADLY POISONS!!! Unfortunately, it just takes longer to quietly kill, but it is killing people and causing all lands of neurological problems. Aspartame changes the brain's chemistry. It is the reason for severe seizures. This drug changes the dopamine level in the brain. Imagine what this drug does to patients suffering from Parkinson's Disease. This drug also causes birth defects.

There is absolutely no reason to take this product. It is NOT A DIET PRODUCT!!! The Congressional record said, "It makes you crave carbohydrates and [they] will make you FAT." Dr. Roberts said that when be got patients off Aspartame, their average weight loss was 19 pounds per person. The formaldehyde stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs.


Aspartame is especially deadly for diabetics. All physicians know what wood alcohol will do to a diabetic. We find that physicians believe that they have patients with retinopathy, when in fact, it is caused by the Aspartame. The Aspartame keeps the blood sugar level out of control, causing many patients to go into coma. Unfortunately, many have died.

People were telling us at the Conference of the American College of Physicians that they had relatives that switched from saccharin to an Aspartame product and how that relative had eventually gone into a coma. Their physicians could not get the blood sugar levels under control. Thus the patients suffered acute memory loss and eventually coma and death.

Memory loss is due to the fact that aspartic acid and pkenylalanine are neurotoxic without the other amino mods found in protein. /Note: this is NOT the same pkenylalanine we take as a health supplement!] Thus it goes past the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the matrons in the brain. Dr. Russell Blaylock, mairosurgeon, said, "The ingredients stimulate the matrons of the brain to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees." Dr. Blaylock has written a book entitled Exitotoxins: The Taste That Kills (Health Press 1-900-6-43-2665).

Dr H. L. Roberts, diabetic specialist and world expert on aspartame poisoning, has also written a book entitled Defense Against Alzheimer's Disease (1-800-814-9800). Dr. Roberts tells how aspartame poisoning is escalating Alzheimer's disease, and indeed it is. As the hospice nurse told me, women are being admitted at 30 years of age with Alzheimer's disease. Dr. Blaylock and Dr. Roberts will be writing a position paper with some case histories and will post it 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."

Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when Aspartame was first marketed. He said, "many diabetic patients presented memory loss, confusion, and severe vision loss."

At the Conference of the American College of Physicians, doctors admitted that they did not know. They had wondered why seizures were rampant (the phenylalanine in Aspartame breaks down the seizure threshold and depletes serotonin, which causes manic depression, panic attacks, rage and violence). Just before the Conference, I received a fax from Norway, asking for a possible antidote for this poison because they are experiencing so many problems in their country.

This "poison" is now available in 90-plus countries worldwide. Fortunately, we had speakers and ambassadors at the Conference from different nations who have pledged their help. We ask that you help too.

Print this article out and warn everyone you know. Take anything that contains Aspartame back to the store. I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame, knows how deadly it is. They fund the American Diabetes Association, American Dietetic Association Congress, and the Conference of the American College of Physicians.

The New York Times, on November 15, 1996, ran an article on how the American Dietetic Association takes money from the food industry to endorse their products. Therefore, they can not criticize any additives or tell about their link to MONSANTO. How bad is this?

We told a mother who had a child on NutraSweet to get off the product. The child was having grand mal seizures every day. The mother called her physician, who called the ADA, who told the doctor not to take the child off the NutraSweet. We are still trying to convince the mother that the Aspartame is causing the seizures. Every time we get someone off Aspartame, the seizures stop. If the baby dies, you know whose fault it is, and what we are up against.

There are 92 documented symptoms of Aspartame, from coma to death. The majority of them are all neurological, because the Aspartame destroys the nervous system.

Aspartame disease is partially the cause to what is behind some of the mystery of the Desert Storm health problems. The burning tongue and other problems discussed in over 60 cases can be directly related to the consumption of an Aspartame product Several thousand pallets of diet drinks were shipped to the Desert Storm troops. (Remember that heat can liberate the methanol from the Aspartame at 86 degrees F.) Diet drinks sat in the 120 degree F. Arabian sun for weeks at a time on pallets.

The service men and women drank them all day long. All of their symptoms are identical to Aspartame poisoning.

Dr. Roberts says, "consuming Aspartame at the time of conception can cause birth defects." The phenylalanine concentrates in the placenta, according to Dr. Louis Elsas, Paediatrician Professor - Genetics, at Emory University in his testimony before Congress.

In the original lab tests, animals developed brain tumours (phenylalanine breaks down into DXP, a brain tumour agent). When Dr. Espito was lecturing on Aspartame, me, a physician in the audience and a neurosurgeon said, "when they remove brain tumours, they have found high levels of Aspartame in them."

If it says "SUGAR-FREE" on the label - DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!!!! 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 instilled independent studies on the problems existing in the population (seizures, changes in brain chemistry, changes in neurological and behavioural symptoms).

It was killed by the powerful drug and chemical lobbies, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting public. Since the Conference of the American College of Physicians, we hope to have the help of some world leaders. Again, please help us too. There are a lot of people out there who must be warned. Please let them know this information."

OK, as I've said, an emotional report. I am not sure there is such a thing as 'aspartame disease'. Nevertheless, the information is valid. Anyone in the family using artificial sweeteners do need to read this. Stevia, a natural sweet food is an excellent sweetener for those that cannot, for health reasons have sugar, or for those who for diet reasons choose not to consume sugar.

Stevia is safe for diabetics and has no calories. Anyway - they should all be drinking only water and natural juices.
