is Dr. James Bowen's article on how aspartame triggers male sexual
dysfunction. It also ruins female response.
H. J. Roberts in "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic",
page 292 explains that aspartame and its components can lower brain
serotonin levels through several mechanisms;
Wurtman demonstrated that aspartame inhibits the carbohydrate-induced
synthesis of serotonin (Congressional Record - Senate 1985a, p.
S5511) Serotonin is an important component of the feedback
system that helps limit one's consumption of carbohydrate to
appropriate levels by blunting the carbohydrate craving.
amino acid tyrosine, derived from phenylalanine, reduces the amount
of tryptophan that can cross the blood-brain barrier for utilization
in serotonin production,"
Dr. Roberts explains in
decreasing L-Tryptophan it alters its balance with norepinephrine,
another important neurotransmitter. " Some have likened
its effects to that of a lesion in the lateral hypothalamus causing
depression, and other psychiatric problems and eating disorders.
Impairment of serotonin metabolism appears to summate upon the high
insulin levels and reactive hypoglycemia found in violent offenders
and arsonists (Virkkunen 1982, 1983, 1984, 1987), "Aspartame
Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" page 301

triggers male sexual dysfunction,
ASPARTAME AND MALE SEXUAL
Aspartame damages the hypothalamus. The
hypothalamus produces gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GRH). The GRH
goes down the stalk between the hypothalamus and pituitary and causes
the pituitary then to produce gonadotropins. The ganglia goes to the
testicles and causes them to produce testosterone. When you're
causing hypothalamic destruction with neuroexcitotoxins like
NutraSweet you're suppressing the formation of male hormone without
which there is no sexual drive or pleasure for either. In original
studies aspartame triggered atrophied testes and testicular tumors.
It is by this route.
Aspartame destroys the myelin sheaths and
when that happens the nerves and sheaths try to regenerate but now
the signals can be crossed. So the pleasure receptor of the penis
sends the signals but it arrives at the brain at a different receptor
and not recognized as pleasure. Also, the ganglia collections of
nerve sheaths and cells that are kind of little mini brains that lie
inside the thorax and abdomen in front of the spinal cord are
important in both sexual arousal, penile tumescence (erection) and in
producing orgasm. The methyl alcohol type of poisoning from
NutraSweet is the foremost known cause of degeneration of the sheaths
and the ganglia. Also methyl alcohol type poisoning is the foremost
known cause of antimyelin antibodies , so that thereafter the immune
system can carry out similar destructions in the absence of
aspartame. Now the excitatory area of the cerebral cortex which
allows men to be excited, interested and pleasured by sex atrophies
when the testosterone is suppressed. Moreover, you have an
independent neurotoxin generated by the isolated phenylalanine.
Anytime you have a neurotoxin making the brain sick sexual pleasure
is obliterated because the brain is the most important sexual organ.
You have classic alcohol poisoning and alcoholism and alcohol
poisoning is notoriously famous for wiping out the male
Serotonin and dopamine levels are suppressed. With
your serotonin, dopamine and other neurotransmitters in the brain
obliterated life becomes one long, dark, hopeless, sleepless,
pleasureless night. Turns the goodness of sex into a wistful memory
instead of a reality. Pepsi isn't so peppy after all!
