Default aspartame !

-Aspartame is an extremely toxic chemical that is produced by a chemical company called Monsanto.
-Aspartame is being marketed around the world as a sugar substitute and
is found in all diet soft drinks, such as Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi. It is also found in artificial sweeteners such as NutraSweet, Equal, and Spoonful; and it is used in many other products as a sugar replacement.
-Aspartame will cause you to GAIN weight because it makes you crave carbohydrates.
-Aspartame is a toxic chemical that changes the brain's chemistry. It can and does cause severe seizures. This chemical changes the dopamine level in the brain, and it is particularly deadly for anyone suffering from Parkinson's disease.
-One of the toxic ingredients of Aspartame is wood alcohol. When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in the Aspartame is converted to formaldehyde (
which by the way u find in some shampoos too beware), and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis.
Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of poisons as Cyanide and Arsenic - which are very deadly toxins. The only difference is... Formaldehyde kills quietly, and it takes a little longer. And, in the process of killin people, it causes all kinds of neurological problems.
-One of these symptoms is Lupus, which has become almost as rampant as
Multiple Sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers.
When someone develops Lupus as a result of using Aspartame, they usually do not know that the Aspartame is the culprit. They then continue to use Aspartame, which aggravates the Lupus to such a degree that it sometimes becomes life threatening. When people finally get off the Aspartame, the severity of the Lupus decreases.

-Aspartame Poisoning is also very often diagnosed as Multiple Sclerosis. The methanol toxicity mimics Multiple Sclerosis, and therefore, people are being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when in fact they do not have it. Multiple Sclerosis is not a death sentence, where Methanol Toxicity usually is..

- If you are using Aspartame and you suffer from Fibromyalgia symptoms such as 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 do not have Fibromyalgia, you very likely have Aspartame Poisoning.

-Aspartame is especially deadly for diabetics. The Aspartame keeps the blood sugar level out of control, causing many patients to go into a coma.
-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). These diet drinks sat on pallets in the 120-degree F.
Arabian sun for weeks at a time. The service men and women drank them all day long, and all of their symptoms are identical to Aspartame Poisoning.
- consuming Aspartame during pregnancy can cause birth defects. When the Aspartame attacks the nervous system it does not allow the unborn child to develop properly.
-Aspartame consumption has also been shown to lead to cancer. In the original lab tests on Aspartame, animals that were given Aspartame developed brain tumors. The phenylalanine breaks down into DXP, which is a brain tumor agent.

1)I have been drinking 2 litres of diet coke(on average !! there are days where I drank 4 and 5 litres) every single day since 2005, that is equivalent to 2920 litres of aspartame, I never had migrains abdominal pains or whatever

2) the most accurate post in this whole thread is abousoun's post

Quote:
Nice Topic Justin ...
Aspartame is an artificial sweetener used is most diet and sugar free products and it contains: Methanol and formaldehyde, Phenylalanine, Aspartic acid, Aspartylphenylalanine diketopiperazine


After reviewing scientific studies, FDA determined in 1981 that aspartame was safe for use in foods. In 1987, the General Accounting Office investigated the process surrounding FDA's approval of aspartame and confirmed the agency had acted properly.

However, FDA has continued to review complaints alleging adverse reactions to products containing aspartame. To date, FDA has not determined any consistent pattern of symptoms that can be attributed to the use of aspartame, nor is the agency aware of any recent studies that clearly show safety problems.

Now Is aspartame safe?
Carefully controlled clinical studies show that aspartame is not an allergen. However, certain people with the genetic disease phenylketonuria (PKU), and pregnant women with hyperphenylalanine (high levels of phenylalanine in blood) have a problem with aspartame because they do not effectively metabolize the amino acid phenylalanine, one of aspartame's components. High levels of this amino acid in body fluids can cause brain damage.

Therefore, FDA has ruled that all products containing aspartame must include a warning to phenylketonurics that the sweetener contains phenylalanine.

so unless you have genetic disease as PKU or hyperphenylalanine, you don't have any worries ... and all the symptoms mentioned above are due to high consumption and toxicity ...

Thank You ...


I have done my researches, I have read everything there is to read and yes I came accross your sources, bas they are not accurate. I'll tell you what aspartame toxicity is, you need to drink rediculously high amounts of energy drinks to start to feel anything. aspartame is 180 times sweeter than sugar, iza a regular 2 litres of pepsi needed 50 grams of sugar a diet bottle would take 0.4 gram masalan for the whole bottle(aspartame has a higher molecular weight) ba3den aspartame breaks in the stomach to products the body produces anyway
Quote:
Methanol and formaldehyde, Phenylalanine, Aspartic acid, Aspartylphenylalanine diketopiperazine
it's not some alien compounds here, the excess of these may hurt pregnant women and people with a certain genetic disease but other than that no real symptomes were recorded on regual use

talking about nausea and whatever, these the outcomes of over doses of the products of aspartame but an overdose would be equivalent to more than 10 and 14 litres of aspartame within 24 hours !

you can't get aspartame toxication even you set out to do it and you try your best

Default Re: Why diet drinks r NOT safe

why why is it harmful?
aspartame is not shown to have seriously bad effects
caffeine has as much good effects as bad ones
caffeine increases the effect of drugs like panadol, reduces the risk of getting parkinson disease, and reduces the risk of getting alzeihmer, improves concentration and alertness
the bad effects include trouble sleeping and addiction

no one is gonna die because of it

until someone shows me a real health hazard for this I don't see why I should try quiting and go through the hell of withdrawal symptomes
