Aspartame is the technical name for the brand names NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, and Equal-Measure. It was discovered by accident in 1965 when James Schlatter, a chemist of G.D. Searle Company, was testing an anti-ulcer drug.
Aspartame was approved for dry goods in 1981 and for carbonated beverages in 1983. It was originally approved for dry goods on July 26, 1974, but objections filed by neuroscience researcher Dr. John W. Olney and consumer attorney James Turner in August 1974, as well as investigations of G.D. Searle’s research practices caused the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to put approval of aspartame on hold (December 5, 1974). In 1985, Monsanto purchased G.D. Searle and made Searle Pharmaceuticals and The NutraSweet Company separate subsidiaries.
Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious, including seizures and death. A few of the 90 different documented symptoms listed in the report as being caused by aspartame
Headaches, muscle spasms, irritability, heart palpitations, tinnitus, dizziness, weight gain, Tachycardia, breathing difficulties, vertigo, seizures, rashes, insomnia…. The list goes on and on and on so much so I will not list everything!
According to researchers and physicians studying the adverse effects of aspartame, the following chronic illnesses can be triggered or worsened by ingesting of aspartame:
Brain tumours, alzheimers, cancer, multiple sclerosis, birth defects, fibromyalgia, parkinsons… Again the list goes on!
Do not trust any positive propaganda about aspartame. It is big money and they do not care for your health nor do the FDA. They are corrupt organisations that exist purely for profit and to deceive.
Why do they keep changing their name? To deceive maybe? Perhaps people are cottoning on? Hmmmm…
Watch out for these disguised alternative names… sucralose, sorbitol, maltitol, phenylalanine.
Research this for yourself as it will very soon be in every product known to man on the food chain. Wake up people!
