Aspartame is especially deadly for Diabetics, as it makes the food sugar level go out of control causing patients to suffer severe memory loss, coma and death. The memory loss is due to the fact that Aspartic Acid and Phenylalanine are neurotoxic without the other amino acids found in protein. Thus it goes past the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the neurons of the brain. Dr Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, said The ingredients stimulate the neurons of the brain to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees . Aspartame disease is rampant in the US, and most probably in 90 other countries (Including the UK and most of Europe) where over 5000 products containing Aspartame are sold. Aspartame Disease could also be to blame for Gulf War Syndrome. Several thousand pallets of diet drinks were stored and consumed in the heat of 120 degrees F (remember the heat liberates the methanol at 86 degrees F) Most Gulf War Syndrome symptoms are identical to Aspartame Poisoning. Dr. H. J. Roberts, world expert on Aspartame poisoning, says it also escalates Alzheimer s disease. Women as young as 30 are admitted to hospices with Alzheimer s disease! Dr Roberts also says that consuming Aspartame during conception can cause birth defects. According to Dr. Louis Elsas. Paediatrician Professor of Genetics the Phenylalanine concentrates in the placenta causing mental retardation. Another neurosurgeon said that when brain tumours were removed, high levels of Aspartame were found in them. Aspartame makes you crave carbohydrates, and stores in the fatty tissue, so even though it is used as a diet aid, it actually makes you FAT!

With 93 serious health issues and especially for diabetics this is definately one of the worlds worst ingredients in foods. I know.

If you keep drinking it or eating it, eventually it will catch up with you sooner or later. Diabetics are told to eat it or drink it or use it and like sheep they believe Drs b/c we are always told they take care of your health. After joining a weightloss company and with them introducing this sugar alternative which was in drinks at that time a long long time ago, we, the consumer hadnt a clue. There was nothing like the internet to get info but what we were told so as we were obviously guineapigs we did it. Some or a few lost weight but the rest didnt or struggled and all the time we were told ..drink it! drink it and we did and most never lost weight. Now that very company you will see no creditation for those drinks or foods at all. Why well you figure it out!

No one can sue the company producing this disasterous ingredient b/c its water tight and its interesting to know that now that diet drink company is feeling the pinch as we get more savvy smart.

Here is another excellent website I came across exposing further the health dangers of aspartame and other artificial sweeteners. It makes for disturbing reading.
