- FDA doesn't have far to look. Change in sexual function
is listed on the FDA report of 92 symptoms by aspartame. Vision loss
and blindness is so commonly triggered by aspartame its #6 on the list.
- You don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand
when you put a drug on the market (masquerading as an additive) that liberates
free methyl alcohol it inevitably affects vision. In aspartame the methanol
converts to formaldehyde and formic acid in the retina of the eye and destroys
the optic nerve. Remember how many thousands went blind and died during
prohibition because of the use of wood alcohol/methanol. So many went
blind on aspartame and had seizures that in l986 the Community Nutrition
Institute in l986 petitioned the FDA to ban aspartame. The FDA, handmaiden
of the drug/chemical industry, refused.
- Focus RP Magazine published the article: What's Blinding
the World? exposing aspartame's blinding effect. Aspartame also triggers
optic neuritis and macular degeneration, among other eye problems.
- The late Dr. Morgan Raiford, ophthalmologist, specialist
in methanol toxicity and owner of the Atlanta Eye Hospital wrote many papers
exposing aspartame's effect on the eyes: This letter is to Shannon Roth
who went blind in one eye from aspartame:
- Dr. Raiford also wrote this paper on aspartame's effect
on the eyes:
- "May 20, 1987: FACTS ABOUT ASPARTAME
- "The above product is also manufactured as NutraSweet.
- spin-off is a highly profitable item, with a growing
- products are used as a sweetener, some 200 times as sweet
as regular cane
- "This product has some highly toxic reactions in
the human visual pathway and we are beginning to observe the tragic damage
to the OPTIC NERVE, such as blindness, partial to total OPTIC NERVE ATROPHY.
Once this destructive process has developed there is no return of visual
restoration. We are beginning to see and observe another toxic reaction
which affects the central nervous system which is related to PHENYLALANINE
LEVELS IN THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. These observations are more vague,
however, it stimulates the damaging to the brain and central nervous system,
having the manifestations as PKU NEURO DAMAGE. Over 3000 cases have been
reported and the FDA to date has ignored this existence.
- HUMAN VISUAL PATHWAY DAMAGE
- " The human visual pathway admits ninety percent
of our intellectual input to the brain and central nervous. All of the
learning processes are centered during ones life time. The mechanism of
this tragic damage to the human visual system from this product is and
has been known for over a decade that visual loss takes place. When this
drug enters the digestive tract, largely the upper portion, this ASPARTAME
molecule spins off a by product known as METHANOL or METHYL-ALCOHOL. This
product enters the blood stream and when these portions reach the highly
metabolic region of the OPTIC NERVE AND RETINA, PARTIAL ATROPHY CAN AND
DOES TAKE PLACE. The vision cannot do without oxygen and nutrition for
more than ninety seconds without revealing some damage. Total loss of
vision is present and there is no return. In the very early stages in
which is referred to as the "wet stager", treatment can be given
and will reserve the destructive pathology to the OPTIC NERVE and RETINA.
This must be in the mind of the physician and he must understand the chemical
ongoing process. The writer has seen many cases where the patient was
allowed to go to the degrees of blindness, as this diagnosis of OPTIC NEURITIS
was rendered, as the term IDIOPATHIC NEURITIS OF OPTIC NERVE was given,
usually steroids until systemic gross body and facial moon developed.
This therapy has demonstrated the total lack of understanding of the basic
lack of BIO-CHEMICAL PHYSIOLOGY AT THE MOLECULAR LEVEL.
- "The variability or onset of the OPTIC NERVE ATROPHY
is of a type that one
- must first think of this pathology, and it requires a
certain amount of
- listening to the patient. The quantity of symptoms vary
with each patient.
- "Over the past year the writer has observed the
fact that any portion of the central nervous system can and is affected.
Since the chemical PHENYLALANINE is mixed up with some metabolic mess,
we have seen symptoms of varying hue in the extremities, sensations of
dullness of the intellect, visual shadows, evidence of word structure reversing
- hearing impairment is noted by the individual. This
can and will in time cause problems in learning. The medical community
must alert itself that we have a problem that has surfaced due to the factor
of the drug industry. Parents must be alerted to the side reactions of
this toxic product and its reactions."
- Morgan B. Raiford, M.D. D.Sc (Med) OPHTHALMOLOGY
- Dr. Raiford's analysis was written in l987 and the cases
of aspartame disease continue to multiply. Joyce Wilson, who went blind
and died on aspartame in l990 had over 10,000 cases on her hotline.
During congressional hearings it was admitted that the FDA was so flooded
with aspartame complaints they were referring them to the AIDS Hotline
to get rid of them. Mission Possible Intl has operations in 50 states
and over 25 countries taking these complaints. FDA not only does nothing
about it but serves above the law. I wrote a Citizens Petition for ban
3 years ago. The law requires 180 days to answer but they refuse. Their
only letter said they had more important priorities. So people go blind
and die from a global aspartame disease plague.
- The medical text is Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic,
www.sunsentpress.com or 1 800 827 7991. Over 1000 pages of symptoms, diseases
and drug interactions triggered by this deadly poison. Aspartame is
marketed as NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, Canderel, E951, etc. It features
an extensive chapter on aspartame and vision!
- Aspartame also damages the hypothalamus of the brain
and mitochondria and triggers male sexual dysfunction. It is being used
by 70% of the population. It also ruins female response. We are spammed
daily by ads for Viagra and Cialis because NutraSweet kills passion and
- Dr. James Bowen explains how aspartame triggers male
- The ABC article stresses that risk factors include diabetes
and heart disease. Aspartame no doubt has caused an epidemic of diabetes
because it can precipitate it as discussed in Dr. Roberts medical text.
It also aggravates and simulates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy.
It causes diabetics to go into convulsions and interacts with insulin.
And who do the manufacturers and the professional organizations like the
American Diabetes Assn funded by the manufacturers push aspartame on but
diabetics. And the ADA knows without a shadow of a doubt how aspartame
is destroying diabetics.
- We give out information at the ADA walks, sponsored in
part by Equal. Aspartame also is escalating Alzheimers (Memory loss #9
on the FDA report of 92 documented symptoms) and reports say 65% of diabetics
develop now Alzheimers. Defense Against Alzheimers Disease by H. J. Roberts
- Aspartame also triggers an irregular heart rhythm and
interacts with all cardiac Rx. It damages the cardiac conduction system
causing sudden death. Russell Blaylock, M.D., author of Excitotoxins:
The Taste That Kills about aspartame (www.russellblaylockmd.com) wrote
an Athlete Alert on Sudden Cardiac Death. There are several articles about
this on www.wnho.net click on aspartame. Dr. Blaylock's report: http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_msg_scd.htm
This report also goes into MSG which has a synergistic and additive effect
with aspartame and is another an excitotoxin.
- The entire family can be destroyed by aspartame. It
is an endocrine disrupting drug which stimulates prolactin. It changes
the menses and triggers infertility. A Japanese Study some years ago also
showed that aspartame triggers infertility in the male. It destroys the
sex life of husband and wife. If a woman gets off of aspartame and gets
pregnant, it's an abortifacient and many times she will lose the baby before
she knows she is pregnant. If she carries it aspartame is a teratogen
and triggers birth defects and mental retardation. If a live child is
born it may have heinously damaged the DNA for generations to come. Children
all over the world are suffering from ADD and ADHD and behavioral problems
triggered by this deadly chemical poison.
- You may ask how could the FDA approve aspartame. Don't
fail to get a copy of the aspartame documentary Sweet Misery: A Poisoned
World, http://www.docworkers.com See and hear James Turner, Atty, who
with Dr. John Olney, tried to prevent approval of this neurotoxin. He
explains how Don Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense, at the time CEO of Searle,
called in his markers to get it approved after the FDA for 16 years refused
to allow it on the market. Aspartame approval was by political clout
and not science.
- Ask the FDA why a neurotoxic drug that liberates free
methyl alcohol is on the market, since methanol is classified as a narcotic.
Aspartame causes chronic methanol poisoning which affects the dopamine
system of the brain and produces addiction.
- Pilots are having grand mal seizures in the cockpits
of commercial airliners. Five American Pilots who were using aspartame
have died including one in flight drinking a diet pop. The FAA says they
can't do a thing because it was approved by the FDA. Remember the saying
"your life is in the hands of the pilot"! Read this report by
Dr. Blaylock and decide whether you want your pilot going blind, having
a grand mal seizure, suffering brain fog or dying: http://www.dorway.com/betty/blaypilo.txt
- The FDA knows in original studies aspartame triggered
brain tumors. The molecule breaks down to diketopiperazine, a brain tumor
agent. We are now taking case histories of those with aspartame brain tumors
in New York, New Jersey, Madison County, Illinois and Mississippi for litigation.
- We are, indeed, living in a poisoned world. The plague
of aspartame disease is global, and FDA turns a blind eye and a deaf ear.
We need everyone's help to alert the public and make the FDA and the
manufacturers responsible for this heinous crime of mass poisoning, genocide.
With so much of the population on aspartame no doubt this is the reason
for the epidemic of impotence. And while they are on aspartame they use
drugs to combat impotence from this poison, and go blind.
