There was a lot to go through with WikiLeaks John Podesta emails. One, in particular, has shed some light on the artificial sweetener aspartame.
In this email, the treachery involved in getting NutraSweet approved as a food ingredient. Also, going so far as to pointing out how dangerous it actually is. The email chain was forwarded to Podesta by a Wendy Abrams who writes, “I also have a friend who worked for the researchers at University of Chicago (which has a top-rated neurology dept) and the doctors there said when they gave NutraSweet to lab mice, it literally blew holes in their brains. They said they will tell a pregnant woman to drink any amount of alcohol before touching a sip of NutraSweet, it is that bad.” These emails go back and forth for awhile and eventually lead up to an explanation as to how aspartame became legal.
“Searle – the original developer of aspartame – applied to the FDA for approval to use aspartame in food sweetener for a second time [aspartame was previously banned]. Arthur Hayes Hull, Jr., Reagan’s newly appointed FDA commissioner, proceeded to appoint a 5-person scientific commission to review the board of inquiry’s decision. When it became clear that the panel was going to uphold the ban with a 3–2 decision, Hull placed a sixth member on the commission so the vote would become deadlocked. Then Hull personally broke the tie in aspartame’s favor.”
An FDA report actually lists the many symptoms of aspartame ingestion. So many symptoms and yet it is still being used in our food? These symptoms include depression, memory loss, fatigue, anxiety, headaches, vertigo, irritability, insomnia, weight gain, palpitations, loss of taste, sexual dysfunction, weakness, numbness, joint pain, tinnitus, dizziness, blurry vision, seizures, rashes, and blindness. Aspartame has no place in our diets. It is associated with health issues like Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, mental retardation, lupus, death, birth defects, fibromyalgia, and more. We should not be ingesting this dangerous carcinogenic substance.
Greed and corruption really has gone too far. We are being force fed poisons like aspartame on a daily basis. We are becoming sick and weak. If you have to time to watch the documentary below I am sure it will give you more than enough reasons to swear off of aspartame for good.
