Diet Soft Drinks Up Risk Of Dying Young By 16%

By Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum

In reading studies on aspartame and heart attacks and stroke, it always amazes me how people bring up cause and effect,  or if its aspartame what is the mechanism or you need more studies.  There have been over 30 years of studies with the obvious being proven over and over again.  Here is yet another study. 

 The mechanism of the symptoms and diseases caused by aspartame are very well discussed in the 1000 page medical text: "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" by the late Dr. H. J. Roberts, M.D.,    He was the world expert and diabetic specialist.  In a nutshell he always said  aspartame causes an irregular heart rhythm and interacts with all cardiac medication.  It damages the cardiac conduction and causes sudden death.  It's also in "Health and Nutrition Secrets To Save Your Life" by Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, also on  Here are some reports by the experts:

Also here is the FDA report of 92 symptoms from four types of seizures to coma and death:

In February 2012 there was a study on aspartame and heart disease:  " At the end of 10 years, the daily diet soda drinkers were more likely to have had a stroke or heart attack, or to have died from vascular disease. The increased risk remained even after study investigators accounted for smoking, exercise, weight, sodium intake, high cholesterol, and other factors that could have contributed to the difference. The results were published online in the Journal of General Internal Medicine"

In November 2012 there was a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition on the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease: having to do with soft drinks and aspartame. 

Also in

2012 according to the Daily Mail, researchers from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and Columbia University Medical Center claim diet soda drinkers are 43 percent more likely to suffer with heart related problems.

In 2017 there was the Framington Heart Study -   In July 2017 there was a study from the Canadian Medical Association showing  increased rate of heart disease.
Jul 17, 2017 - Canadian Medical Association Journal ... and increased risk of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart ... Consumption of artificial sweeteners, such as aspartame, sucralose and stevia, is widespread and increasing.

I've just got started but the point is when researchers say you need more studies as an example, the public should realize that since the beginning independent scientific peer reviewed studies have always shown how deadly is aspartame.  In fact, Dr. Ralph Walton in doing research for 60 Minutes showed that 92% of "independent" studies showed the problems aspartame triggers or precipitates.   Dr. Walton says if you eliminate 6 that have something to do with the FDA because of their loyalty to industry and one pro-aspartame summary, 100% show the problems.   Even in original studies the manufacturer, G. D. Searle, couldn't get aspartame to show safety which is why the FDA tried to have them indicted for fraud.  Before aspartame approval the FDA was trying to look out for the public.  Since the approval of aspartame through the political chicanery of Don Rumsfeld the FDA's loyalty is to Big Pharma they call their customer.

With regard to birth defects brought out below the FDA made a deal with G. D. Searle and sealed the teratology (or birth defect) studies which showed the horror of neural tube defects, spina bifida and cleft palates for starters.  You can read about it in this chapter on aspartame and autism from "While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills": After reading the chapter you can understand why autism has risen 2500 per cent since the approval of aspartame.  I've added the information back to the Bressler Report where the FDA removed them:

How many of the independent studies on aspartame showing heart attacks and strokes have the FDA paid attention to?  You never hear a peep out of the FDA who protects Big Pharma rather than the public.  However, you do see the aspartame industry's front groups attempt to get the public not to take them seriously. 

So here below is the latest study on aspartame having to do with heart attacks and stroke - and on dying young.

Diet soft drinks increase risk of "dying young" by 16%

February 22, 2019 6:11 am in Opinion, by The Meddler

There are plenty of things that doctors warn pregnant mothers against consuming once they discover they're "with child": raw sushi, soft cheese, deli meats, alcohol.

But when I was pregnant with my first child, there was one item on the prohibited list that surprised me.

Diet soft drinks.

"They're a total no-go," my mother-earth friends warned me, "because they contain aspartame, which has been linked to birth defects."

Birth defects! Hold the phone.

As it turns out, there are other risks of diet drinks too. Risks like "dying young".

A new study has revealed that drinking two cans of any artificially sweetened drink each day will significantly increase the risk of stroke and heart disease.

In fact, your risk jumps up by almost a third, according to the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association, and the risk of early death is 16 per cent higher for those who consume diet drinks, compared to those who don't.

It's enough to make you give up the syrupy sweet concoction for good - something that Coca Cola and its compadres clearly want to avoid!

For what it's worth, though, the news isn't all bad.

Yes, consuming diet soft drinks every day could make you "die young".

But aspartame hasn't been proven (yet!) to be the ghastly death trap ingredient for pregnant women that its reputation proclaims it to be.

There was a study performed over 15 years ago that "showed that aspartame causes birth defects", confirms obstetrician Dr David Elmer from Massachusetts.

"But if you really flesh out what that study did, it looked at a breed of rat that's prone to birth defects, and the rats were fed a dose of aspartame that you would reach if you had 70 diet sodas per day. As long as you don't drink 70 diet sodas - and you're not a rat - you don't have to really worry about aspartame."

Meanwhile, the American Cancer Council says reputable studies "have not found a link" between aspartame and cancer.

So for diet soft drink fans, there's a little respite sprinkled amongst the negative truth bombs. But the bottom line is: this stuff ain't good for you. Treat it like a "sometimes treat" and you should be okay, but make it part of your daily life, and you're punishing your insides on the daily.

Aspartame has always been known to cause horrific birth defects.  In the manufacturers own studies it was found that aspartame caused spina bifida, neural tube defects and cleft palate for starters.  Read the information in the Bressler Report. In the congressional record you will read Dr. Louis Elsas, pediatric professor, genetics, testimony as well.  In Dr.John Olney's testimony to the FDA Board of Inquiry also on my web site he says birth defects are a given.  As to cancer, FDA Dr. Adrian Gross, told the Senate that aspartame caused brain tumors and brain cancer and was illegally on the market because it  violated the Delaney clause which makes it illegal to put anything on the market that causes cancer.  His last words will always ring through history: "And if the FDA violates its own laws who is left to protect the public?"  Doesn't anyone do research when they write these articles!  Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum, Founder, Mission Possible World Health Intl,

Drinking Two or More Diet Sodas a Day Increases Likelihood of Strokes, Heart-Attacks, American Heart Association Says

Diet Sodas and Juices Are Linked to Higher Stroke Risk
Thanks to artificial sweeteners.

February 14, 2019  Fortune Magazine

Diet sodas are often considered to be healthier alternatives to sugary beverages. A study this week is cautioning that immoderate drinking of the low-calorie drinks is associated with a greater risk of strokes or heart attacks.

A study published in Stroke, a journal produced by the American Heart Association, drew on the health data of 82,000 women enrolled in a long-term study of women's health. Of the participants, 5.1% said they consumed at least diet beverages per day. That group had significantly greater likelihood of strokes and coronary heart disease.

Women who drank two or more artificially sweetened drinks had a 23% higher risk of strokes in general, and a 31% higher risk of strokes involving clotting in smaller blood vessels in the brain. They were also 29% more likely to suffer from heart disease and 16% more likely to die from any cause than other women in the study.

The study found that women who were obese were especially at risk of a stroke, even if they didn't have a history of heart disease.

Previous studies linking diet sodas to strokes and heart attacks have drawn criticism. These types of studies cant prove cause and effect, only an association, the Harvard Health Letter noted following a similar study in 2017. Researchers don't have any plausible explanation for why artificial sweeteners might increase stroke risk.
