In February of this year, Michelle Obama spoke in Atlanta concerning childhood obesity. Dr. H. J. Roberts author of the medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, http://www.sunsentpress.com sent his sister, Esther Roberts Sokol to present to her this 1000 page medical text. Unfortunately, security at its highest would not allow other guests with materials.
Just recently this medical text along with a letter from Dr. H. J. Roberts, FACP,FCCP was presented to Michelle Obama in person, so she now understands the basis for childhood obesity. Aspartame makes you crave carbohydrates and gain weight. As the Trocho Study in Barcelona showed the formaldehyde converted from the free methyl alcohol embalms living tissue and damages DNA. The study also showed substantial toxicity in the adipose tissue or fat cells.
The letter in part given to First Lady Obama said, "Having been involved with obesity as a physician for more than four decades, including much research and many publications, allow me to express thanks for your interest and efforts.
"An important aspect of the problem largely has been ignored. It is the enormous consumption of the sweetener aspartame in "sugar-free" products, such as NutraSweet, Equal and "diet" sodas. The side effects of this chemical are profound, as detailed in my books and articles on the subject.
"With reference to obesity and a hoost of neurologic/psychiatric complications encountered in children, allow me to refer you to specific chapters in my book, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic," I shall be pleased to answer your questions based on my prolonged experience...especially as they may arise with the use of these products by your daughters."
Mrs. Obama was also given a copy of the DVD, "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World" which presents the facts on aspartame as told by experts.
Many in the White House now use Just Like Sugar, a sweetener made with chicory that has no additives, just food However, there are those still using aspartame and diet pop without knowledge of its toxicity. Even the President has been seen drinking Diet Coke. It is concerning when leaders of the free world use aspartame since it changes brain chemistry, and causes confusion and brain fog. The free methyl alcohol classified as a narcotic causes chronic methanol poisoning. This affects the dopamine system of the brain and causes the addiction. So once hooked its hard to get consumers off the toxin including the children. Three Ramazzini Studies have proven aspartame to be a multipotential carcinogen causing everything from leukemia and lymphoma to breast and kidney cancer. Original studies by Searle also showed cancer and aspartame violated the Delaney Amendment and adulteration laws.
The Report For Schools: http://www.mpwhi.com/report_on_aspartame_and_children.htm written by the experts exposes a sad commentary how children are being poisoned. Since aspartame damages the mitochondria it also interacts with drugs and vaccines discussed in detail in the medical text. Aspartame also triggers an irregular heart rhythm, and interacts with all cardiac medication. It damages the cardiac conduction system and causes sudden cardiac death. A recent study linked diet drinks with heart attacks and strokes. Many athletes have dropped dead including young students.
There has been a trend to remove regular pop from schools, allowing only diet sodas. An example is what happened in a Yorkshire school is that of Matthew Hobson. He was accused of drug use because of the slurring of his speech from the wood alcohol. Eventually the school paid off, realizing what the diet pop had done. Aspartame is a psycho drug and can trigger ADD, ADHD, psychiatric and behavioral problems. The phenylalanine in aspartame lowers the seizure threshold and depletes serotonin, Lowered serotonin triggers everything from bipolar or manic depression to suicidal tendencies and paranoia. Aspartame also interacts with all anti-depressants. Often our children are medicated instead of educated.
An excellent example of what aspartame does to children is the case where a Dr. Baret in the Dominican Republic changed the diet of 360 children, and put them on aspartame juice. Almost all had reactions from confusion, behavioral problems, etc. When told to take the children off the aspartame juice he said they all reverted back to normal. It is hoped that First Lady Michelle Obama now armed with three decades of evidence will help to get this toxin out of the schools. Further, it causes birth defects which the FDA knew all along but required no warning. This helps to understand the enormous epidemic of autism. Aspartame has many names from AminoSweet,Equal,Canderel,Spoonful, NutraSweet, E951, Benevia, NutraTaste, etc. Further, Stuart Pape of the National Yogurt Association has petitioned the FDA to allow aspartame in dairy products and yogurt without labeling which is against the law. The FDA has refused to answer the question. Ajinomoto is trying to get Advantame approved, another aspartame poison, and Neotame, a more powerful aspartame is being used without labeling.
