Toxic truth about sugar substitutes

Toxic truth about sugar substitutes

Toxic truth about sugar substitutes - David - brooklyn, new york [DMartinsg@aol.com]
One day while working as an RN in Clinical rotation at Kings County Hospital, I noticed that all my patients for the last few months were diabetic. I met an African American man who was suffering from one of the worst cases of a diabetic foot ulcer that I had ever seen, even until this day. I asked him about his diet and he informed me that he does everything his doctors and the ADA (american diabetes association) asked of him and every other diabetic. I then began asking my other patients about their diets and noticed a similar trend between them. They were all sick after following the guidelines set forth by the government and the ADA. All these patients began telling me they eat "sweet n low" and not sugar like they are suppose to. I began asking all my patients and all would say they eat these sweeteners and this is when I realized something: We are being poisoned! I began dong research on diabetic and artificial sweeteners like aspartame, saaccharin, neotame, monosodium glutamae, and other products. I found thousands of pages on the toxicity of aspartame and these substitutes. The FDA refused to pass aspartame for 12 years as a substitute from 1970 until about 1982 because research showed that aspartame causes: brain tumors, diabetes, heart disease, strokes, nephropathy, diabetic retinopathy, neuropathy, cancer, leukemia and many other disease. In 1982, Ronald Reagan hired Arthur Hayes Hull, MD, as commissioner of the FDA. Donald Rumsfeld, CEO of the pharmaceutical company G.D. Searle, worked backdoor deals to get the prior commissioner of the FDA, Jere E. Goyan, fired. Goyan wouldn't approve aspartame for public consumption due to its side effects in rats. Immediately, almost over night, Hayes approved aspartame as a sugar substitute by casting a deciding vote in a panel of 6 members. Initially the panel consisted of five members but was given a sixth when the original panel voted 3-2 in favor of denying aspartames legalization. Rumsfeld was instrumental in aspartame's becoming legalized. Rumsfeld got a ten million plus dollar bonus and, immediately after Aspartame's legalization, Arthur Hayes Hull was rewarded with a job at G.D. Searle. The principal component of aspartame is aspartate--a neurotransmitter and and excitatory amino acid. Neurotransmitters cross the blood brain barrier and excess aspartate in the blood causes death of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Aspartame decomposes into aspartic acid, phenylalanine and methanol. methanol breaks down into formaldehyde to formic acid (which is fire ant poison) and carbon monoxide. Phenylalanine is a neurotoxin and aspartic acid is an excitotoxin. (Aspartame=Aspartic Acid, Methanol, Phenylalanine-->formaldehyde to formic acid and Carbon Monoxide.) Once broken down, aspartame sits in the blood stream. Methanol (wood furnisher polish) particularly saturates and poisons the liver. Methanol is half the chemical of Ethanol (drinking alcohol) but much more toxic. Methanol is is a hydroxyl group from being methane--a toxic gas. The liver loses its ability to detoxify these poisons because of chronic liver poisoning and liver disease, hepatitis, cirrhosis, and failure ensure. The same poison from Methanol poisoning is what happens with Ethanol (alcohol) poisoning except Methanol poisoning is more insidious. Aspartame is a poison and, like any other poison, attacks tissues of the body. Formaldehyde is used as a postmortem preservative and this is the chemical that sits in your system. The chemicals from aspartame sits in the blood stream and attaches to nerve endings. within the vascular system and eventually crosses the blood brain barrier. Aspartame causes coagulation of blood. The kidneys attempt to remove/filter the toxins from the body but cannot once high levels are reached. Once coagulated, the kidneys have a difficult time filtrating coagulated blood. The coagulated blood causes tearing and scarring of the glomeruli and this is why protein and blood begins being filtered. The kidneys lose their ability to selectively filtrate and cleanse the blood. Anyway, the reasons I write this is because I am sick, tired, disgusted, enraged, outraged, and saddened by seeing my fellow brothers and sisters suffering and dying from these illnesses that are man-made and induced. I write this as a tribute and declaration to those who have fallen from diabetes or any other illnesses that i will spread the word and the truth. Ultimately, when we die, we are not going to be judged by dollars and cents but rather by the people we've helped and the good deeds done.
