The next time you pop open a can of diet soda, pause for a moment to consider what exactly you’re drinking. As the aspartame gets broken down in your digestive tract, a metabolic by-product called DKP appears. According to Dr. Blaylock, when your stomach processes DKP, it produces a compound very similar to N-nitrosourea, a powerful brain tumor-causing chemical. In addition, aspartame contains methanol, which the body breaks down into formic acid and formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is one of the main substances pumped into a dead body during the embalming process.

Haven’t really seen much on here about aspartame.. so thought I’d share just how dangerous it is.

Aspartame is an artificial sweetener, discovered by accident, which is 150 times sweeter than sugar. Extensive tests have been done on it. Animals all avoid it. Rats got tumours and even died from it. Yet it was approved by the FDA and is in a lot of our food and drink (mainly those labelled ‘diet’ or ‘0 sugar’). It is often disguised under the brand names ‘AminoSweet’, ‘NutraSweet’, ‘Equal Spoonful’ and ‘Equal Measure’.

Aspartame hasn’t been around long, so we’re unable to see the complete effects of it. But it’s already been linked to a range of cancer’s and fertility issues. People with MS need to ensure they don’t consume aspartame and virtually any other sweetener. It can also cause MS symptoms in people who do not suffer from it.

‘Artificial Sweetener Disease (ASD) is sweeping across America, affecting tens of thousands of consumers, and Western medicine calls it anything but what it really is, so that doctors can prescribe expensive pharmaceuticals and set up “check up” appointments for the following weeks.

Call it recurring headaches, unbearable migraines, depression, anxiety, muscle pain, arthritis flare ups, buzzing or ringing in the ears, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease, inflammation, even acid reflux, but don’t call it ASD, or the patient may stop consuming synthetic sweeteners, and then not schedule more doctor visits.

The symptoms of ASD can change overnight, depending on how much chemical sweetener you consume, and which ones. Some combinations are especially toxic. Consumers can go from a migraine headache to vomiting or from vision problems to an upset stomach. Many people experience central nervous system disorders, cramping, nervous twitches and abnormal reflexes.’

Pepsi to Drop Aspartame 

PepsiCo says it’s dropping aspartame from Diet Pepsi in response to customer feedback and replacing it with sucralose, another artificial sweetener commonly known as Splenda.

The decision to swap sweeteners comes as Americans keep turning away from popular diet sodas. Competitor Coca-Cola said this week that sales volume for Diet Coke, which also uses aspartame, fell 5 percent in North America in the first three months of the year.
