Aspartame & MSG quotes

Excitotoxin: a substance added to foods and beverages that literally stimulates neurons to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees.

[2010 Oct] Aspartame Conspiracy: Toxic, Addictive & Illegal by DR. BETTY MARTINI The problem is the manufacturers know aspartame is addictive. Like in the case of Mars I called them and asked if aspartame were in their products and they told me "yes, in Mars Bars". I said, "But its not labeled," and they said, its under natural flavors.....The free methyl alcohol is classified as a narcotic. It causes chronic methanol poisoning. This affects the dopamine system of the brain and causes the addiction....One informant said a Pepsi employee told him that the National Soft Drink Association had done a 10 year study showing Alzheimer's, birth defects and blindness. He said he was demoted because he told about it but that all people should be warned.
..... I ran into somebody from NSDA when I was giving out flyers in Tuesday Morning some years ago. She kept saying aspartame was safe and when I mentioned the study she got all excited and said, "No way, you could have that study!"  That's all she had to say. Coke and Pepsi have been doing studies for years. I even spoke to a man who use to work for Coke. He said all he did was translate studies from around the world. They were all bad. They only publish studies controlled or financed by the manufacturers.
...So aspartame is a drug and not an additive; it's an addictive, excitoneurotoxic, carcinogenic, genetically engineered drug and adjuvant that damages the mitochondria or powerhouse of the cell and interacts with drugs and vaccines.
....One of the informants worked for EPA in the early 90's as a pathologist, must have been doing the autopsies on aspartame victims. His name is Reginall Bundrage. My husband and I met him one night and I kept giving him information on aspartame. There are a lot of horrors most people don't know but it turned that Reginall knew everything!! He said, "I know more than you do, I worked with EPA as a pathologist on the aspartame issue. I told them 'how can this allowed, it's constantly killing people?!!!!!' "  He said EPA told them the FDA would have to take it off the market pretty soon because of the amount of deaths. Then Reginall said, "That was in the early 90's and look at the date now. They know its a killer and do nothing."

In hundreds of studies around the world, scientists were creating obese mice and rats to use in diet or diabetes test studies. No strain of rat or mice is naturally obese, so the scientists have to create them. They make these morbidly obese creatures by injecting them with MSG when they are first born. The MSG triples the amount of insulin the pancreas creates, causing rats (and humans?) to become obese. They even have a title for the race of fat rodents they create: "MSG-Treated Rats". Slow Poisoning of America by Donna Russell

They fed animals aspartame throughout their lives and let them die a natural death. They found a dramatic and statistically significant increase in the related cancers of lymphoma and leukemia, along with several histological types of lymphomas, which is of interest because H.J. Roberts had written an article saying that there was a significant increase in the primary lymphoma of the brain. [pdf] An interview with Dr. Russell Blaylock

[2009 Feb] Drink diet soda; develop diabetes By Don Harkins  Based upon FDA claims that aspartame is a "safe" artificial sweetener, the Calorie Control Council and the American Diabetic Association have long been counseling diabetics who drink sodas to drink diet sodas sweetened with aspartame. Neither organization would change their pro-aspartame tune though both had been presented with irrefutable, independently-generated scientific proof that aspartame literally destroys diabetics. The proof has been confirmed one more time.

Now, one of the things we're hearing a lot about is childhood obesity. One early observation with exitotoxicity is it makes animals grossly obese...............Here the government has all these big plans for controlling carbohydrate intake and controlling cereals and sugar and all that. Those things add to the problem, because what we find in MSG-exposed animals is that they prefer carbohydrates and sugars over protein-rich foods. That was one of the characteristics of this type of obesity. It's very difficult to exercise the weight off and almost impossible to diet it off. The appetite is out of control, but the metabolism is also out of control. They have metabolic syndrome on top of obesity, and so then you have a state of leptin insensitivity.

I researched the subject every kind of way you can research it and proved the toxicity of glutamate. They know I know that, because I had exchanged letters with some of their biggest defenders. They all realized that they couldn't answer my arguments. So they leave me alone. They're afraid that if it comes to a big standoff between me and them, they're going to lose. Since I first wrote the book in 1995, proof supporting my viewpoint has increased enormously. The new material on peripheral glutamate receptors absolutely killed these people. They have no defense against that. The new information on the dramatic increase in cancer aggressiveness is something that they are terrified of. [pdf] An interview with Dr. Russell Blaylock

The pressure on researchers is so enormous. Dr. Trocho came out with his research about the DNA damage by aspartame. Then his career was assaulted by the makers of aspartame. He said he would never do another research project concerning aspartame. Well, a number of researchers have said the same thing. Once they published their results, the full weight of these companies come down on their head. NutraSweet will contribute millions to a university and threaten to pull their donations if someone isn't quieted. [pdf] An interview with Dr. Russell Blaylock

You know, they passed a law at one time in several states that no one but dieticians could speak on the subject of nutrition. Several states had that law passed. This meant Ph.D. biochemists couldn't talk about health. It was ridiculous. I'm sure that one day they're going to have an internet bill saying there's just too much dangerous material is coming over the internet on health issues, and we need to regulate it. [pdf] An interview with Dr. Russell Blaylock

Aspartame is not a necessary nutrient, and neither is MSG. The weight of the evidence is overwhelming. If you want to avoid obesity, metabolic syndrome, neurodegenerative diseases and cancer, and if you don't want to make your cancer more aggressive, then you need to stay away from these products. The damage affects pregnant women, unborn babies and newborns. It can produce changes in the brain that are irreversible, depending on when it is stopped. What we've found is that it reprograms the wiring of the brain, particularly the hypothalamus, so it doesn't function normally. These children are abnormal for the rest of their lives in terms of their physiological function. [pdf] An interview with Dr. Russell Blaylock

Whether they're (American Diabetes Association?) just deluding themselves and choosing not to believe it's toxic, refusing to look at the evidence, or they're just concerned about the money and could care less, I don't know, but when you look at the pathophysiology of diabetes and the effect of aspartame, it's absolute nonsense for anybody who has diabetes to be on aspartame. Particularly in a neurological aspect, it's going to make it a lot worse. [pdf] An interview with Dr. Russell Blaylock

What aspartame has done to the family is a crime.  If someone does get pregnant Dr. Bowen points out that aspartame is an abortifacient and also a teratogen (causes birth defects).  And if a live child is born he says aspartame may have heinously damaged DNA for generations to come.  DNA damage was proven on the Trocho Study in l998, and also showed that the formaldehyde accumulates in the cells with most toxicity in the liver but substantial amounts in the kidneys, adipose tissue (reason for obesity -fat cells), retina and brain.  Aspartame also ruins female response and trigger male sexual dysfunction....As Dr. Blaylock says in Excitotoxins, even if a child survives his mother using aspartame during pregnancy, by the time he reaches puberty you will probably see behavioral problems.  Aspartame reduces IQ, triggers ADD, autism, ADHD and other horrors..GLOBAL RELEASE   - ASPARTAME TOXICITY Forwarded by Diana Buckland by request of Dr. Betty Martini

Activating thermogenesis is the most effective way to lose fat, regardless of the cause. Doing so, allows a person to burn fat without exercise. Activating thermogenesis can be done by consuming certain foods or nutritional supplements.
    The most important way to activate thermogenesis is by abstaining from sugar (sucrose and fructose), artificial flavors (aspartame and sucralose) and high glycemic index (GI) foods. To further simplify, a person could simply stop drinking soda, this includes diet soda. All of the aforementioned factors block your body's ability to burn fat. As a result, your body only burns carbohydrates while storing fat. I call it a biochemical nightmare. Over time, the nightmare is irreversible and results in what is known as insulin resistance. [2006] Interview of Shane Ellison author of Health Myths Exposed

Nobody has ever said it better than Dr. James Bowen who told the FDA years ago that aspartame is mass poisoning of the American public and more than 70+ countries of the world GLOBAL RELEASE   - ASPARTAME TOXICITY Forwarded by Diana Buckland by request of Dr. Betty Martini

Aspartame is supposedly a "diet"  sweetener, keeps you slim.  The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF) has patented it for "appetite enhancement".  It keeps you thin by making you crave carbohydrates, as we explained 12 years ago: If you want to be fat, NutraSweet is where its at! .....Now in 9 countries OMRF has patents to use it to treat SICKLE CELL ANEMIA!  It enhances the disease, makes it more deadly and murderous!  A dagger in the heart of the black race! Murdering Blacks with Aspartame!  Tuskegee Syphilis experiments were Chickenfeed compared to boosting Sickle Cell Crisis! BY  JAMES BOWEN, M.D.

Aspartame's effects on the brain led Richard Wurtman, an MIT neuroscientist, to the discovery, as recorded in _The New England Journal of Medicine_ (No. 309, 1983), that the sweetener defeats its purpose as a diet aid, since high doses may instill a craving for calorie-laden carbohydrates. Nutrapoison by Alex Constantine 

Society is being weeded out right now, as minority species are being eliminated very specifically by biological germ warfare and other tactics meant to insure the elimination of those less genetically favourable...Our food is being tampered with, by the insertion of food additives and substances like aspartame. ....They view this as a massive genetic cleanup."--Thanks for the Memories: The Memoirs of Bob Hope's and Henry Kissinger's mind control slave by Brice Taylor  p281

The heart muscle is very sensitive to alcohol poisonings. Such alcoholic cardiomyopathies frequently terminate in sudden death. The Aspartame molecule is an alcohol poison about 20,000 times as toxic a poison as ethanol, (regular old sipping or beverage alcohol) on a per weight basis. Moreover, the myocardium (heart muscle) never gets to rest except between heart beats, so the methanol from Aspartame that becomes more or progressively toxic upon metabolism is especially  damaging to muscles.......The heart's extreme mitochondrial concentration, and its dependence upon mitochondrial metabolism for its unresting labors make it a site intensely generative of Aspartame's poisonous byproducts and extremely subject to their resultant chemical, immune, mitochondrial and CHz damages. EPIDEMIC of SUDDEN DEATHS in those EXPOSED TO ASPARTAME By James Bowen, M.D.

The horrendous toxicity of Aspartame has been well documented ever since its inception.  Sudden deaths logically arise from several of its many toxicities. For example, Christina Onassis, Patty Crane, and Carol Hamm are amongst those that I know of who were using Aspartame and were addicted to it, and visibly deteriorating under its influence when they suddenly, and unexpectedly, died there from. EPIDEMIC of SUDDEN DEATHS in those EXPOSED TO ASPARTAME By James Bowen, M.D.

Patty Crane was found dead amongst a litter of diet Pepsi cans. When her mother, Betty Hayland, who was exposing Patty's "Nutra Death" on TV, came to me to learn the biochemical basis of its deadliness; she, after learning some of the biochemistry, asked: "Dr Bowen, how could such a poisonous chemical ever be on the market?" I answered "Betty! This is organized crime in our government." She became furious with me! "That I should suggest there is organized crime in the U.S. government! What a nut!" A few days later they called and threatened her life. A couple days later two men tried to drag her into a car. She was able to make her escape by breaking free and running. A couple days later her husband Dave, who now has no question that organized crime runs our government, came home and found her shot dead in a puddle of blood on the floor.

Aspartame creates altered brain function, nerve damage, and systemic organ complications. Information collected reveals that aspartame clinically exacerbates any borderline (even yet undetected) predisposing illness, and absolutely complicates certain known medical illnesses like Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, diabetes, retinopathies, allergies, mentation disorders, etc. Aspartame: The History Of A Killer - The Whole Story By Arthur M. Evangelista

Aspartame is a toxin, and is unique in this hazardous respect. This in NOT an allergic reaction, but rather a true toxin. No other food can be provided as a comparison to the toxic nature of NutraSweet. Upon closer examination, the available research revealed that the manufacturer (Monsanto) and the FDA are manipulating the public (via the media) into thinking that aspartame is safe. It is not. As an American who trusted the system we all created, as an American who worked for the system, it made me angry that public health has taken a backseat to greed. This is the "engine" that perpetuated this epidemic: the collusion of our government with multi-national conglomerate influence. Arthur M. Evangelista Former FDA Investigator. Aspartame: The History Of A Killer - The Whole Story By Arthur M. Evangelista

"Rumsfeld was president of Serle corporation in 1977, maker of aspartame, then, part of Reagan transition team, and got aspartame 'legalized' by appointing a defense department contractor [??] (Hayes) as head of FDA!
    In January 1981 Rumsfeld told a sales meeting, according to one attendee, that he would call in his chips and get aspartame approved by the end of the year. On January 25th, the day the new president took office, the previous FDA commissioner's authority was suspended, and the next month, the commissioner's job went to Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes.
    Transition records do not show why the administration chose ***Hayes, a professor and Defense Department contract researcher.*** In July Hayes, defying FDA advisors, approved aspartame for dry foods -- his first major decision. In November 1983 the FDA approved aspartame for soft drinks -- Hayes' last decision. In November 1983 Hayes, under fire for accepting corporate gifts, left the agency and went to Searle's public-relations firm as senior medical advisor. Later Searle lawyer Robert Shapiro named aspartame NutraSweet. Monsanto purchased Searle. Rumsfeld received a $12 million bonus. Shapiro is now Monsanto president. .....Former White House Chief of Staff Rumsfeld owed a debt of gratitude to former White House confidante and Rumsfeld friend Donald Kendal, Pepsi's chairman. The Pepsi announcement and aggressive marketing (millions of gumballs, a red and white swirl, tough contracts) made NutraSweet known in every home. ....From 1985 to 1995, researchers did about 400 aspartame studies. They were divided almost evenly between those that gave assurances and those that raised questions about the sweetener. Most instructively, Searle paid for 100% of those finding no problem. All studies paid for by non-industry sources raised questions."---James S. Turner
