Dangerous Link Found Between Aspartame and Alzheimer’s

Alzheimers Concept.

Many diseases can be avoided if methanol is removed from all sources including:

  • Cigarettes
  • Aspartame
  • All smoked foods
  • Fruit and vegetable products, and juices, in bottles, cans, or pouches
  • Overly ripe, nearly rotten fruits and vegetables
  • Jellies, jams, and marmalades not made fresh
  • Splenda

Speaking of Splenda, which is the brand name for sucralose; this is another synthetic chemical which is made through a five step process that is patented. It’s made by combining one sugar molecule with three chlorine molecules. The manufacturer tries to pass this off as being natural such many natural foods contain chloride, which is true, however, in natural foods, the chloride is held together with ionic bonds that come apart easily when consumed. In Splenda, they do not come apart, and since your body has no natural enzymes to break it down, (and why would your body contain this type of enzyme since it’s a completely UNNAURAL compound) about 15 percent of sucralose is simply stored by your body as fat. So much for this being a sweetener that can help you lose weight!

Not surprisingly, very recent research reveals that Splenda has oxidative effects, which means it could possibly contain neurotoxic compounds. Like many of the patented compounds that are released to the general public without adequate testing studies, it’s as of yet unknown if the preliminary toxicological research will apply to humans. It’s amazing how products like these, that have had very few studies performed on them can be readily released to the public for consumption while there are more than 7,000 published studies on the health benefits of turmeric which is still being vastly ignored by the medical establishments of today.

When it comes to artificial sweeteners, there is very little doubt that the system has been more interested in protecting the profits of the industry, rather than the consumer’s safety. Despite increasing evidence that shows that artificial sweeteners as a group, Aspartame in particular, have adverse health effects, the FDA has approved yet another artificial sweetener called Advantame. Advantame is made from a mixture of aspartame and an artificial vanilla flavor.

One of the other problems with artificial sweeteners is that they make the brain crave more calories because the body isn’t receiving any type of satisfaction by this sugar imposter. This generally leads to weight gain, as well as an addiction to more artificial sweeteners. Try making some changes to your diet, such as using natural sugar products such as stevia to your diet.

Aspartame is a noxious compound that has been spread throughout our food supply. Although it should be recalled by the FDA and tested as a drug, instead of as a food additive, don’t expect that to happen anytime soon. By the way, if you don’t think that this substance causes harm, the United States Air Force has gone so far as to formally tell their pilots to stop drinking or eating items that contain aspartame as they were concerned about their pilots developing suicidal thoughts, vertigo, and grand mal seizures. Aspartame blocks the production of your feel good, calming neurotransmitter called serotonin. Does anyone else find it interesting that the need for antidepressants has gone up considerably since aspartame was introduced to the American consumer?

If you should experience side effects from aspartame or any other artificial sweetener, be sure to report it to the FDA, if you live in the USA, right away. This can be done easily online and only takes a few minutes. Although it doesn’t seem as if the FDA is listening, perhaps one day, when they are forced to face the facts about the product that they approved with almost no testing, we can all point the finger and say “We told you so”, and demand that the remove dangerous, untested products from the market.

    I’m fortunate and get migraines when I use artificial sweeteners – I say fortunate because I haven’t been using this poison in decades but believe me, I know when I accidentally consume some.
