This is in response to the article entitled, “No Evidence Swapping Sugar For Artificial Sweeteners Helps Weight Loss, Major Review Warns,” which may be found at: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/sweeteners-health-check-sugar-replace-diet-coke-aspartame-cancer-obesity-weight-bmj-who-a8708241.html
Much of the media have published this new review and the British Medical Journal mentions accurately the point of bias in trying to come to a conclusion on a review. Indeed Industry protects its poison. We know after 40 years of aspartame it has caused an incredible epidemic of obesity, the study being done on the public. Dr. Richard Wurtman of MIT admitted aspartame makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight which is in the protest of the National Soft Drink Assn (now American Beverage) and congressional record on my web site, http://www.mpwhi.com If you ask a waiter or waitress as I have they will tell you those drinking diet soda will order three for every one regular soda drinkers order.
In the 1970's if you asked the FDA about aspartame they would probably tell you how bad it is because they were trying to get an indictment of fraud against the company. In the 1980's if you questioned cancer from aspartame you would have found out the Board of Inquiry which is on my web site had revoked the petition for approval because of the brain cancer. In 1985 FDA Dr. Adrian Gross told the Senate aspartame violated the Delaney Amendment because it caused brain tumors and brain cancer, and other cancers for that matter. He said that it was beyond a shadow of a doubt and the FDA should not have been able to set an allowable daily intake. His last words will never be forgotten "and if the FDA violates the law who is left to protect the public?" Here is the article I wrote about it - "No Safe Dose of Aspartame": https://thenhf.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/HFN_2012-2.pdf
Today there are front groups like the Calorie Control Council and ILSI, a research front group. https://usrtk.org/sweeteners/ilsi-wields-stealthy-influence-for-the-food-and-agrichemical-industries As an employee told me "If you want research funds you have to get the right result."
Almost 100% of independent peer reviewed research show the problems and physicians and researchers in the trenches of medical practice or research know how dangerous this poison is. Here is the Aspartame Resource Guide http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_resource_guide.htm which lists some of the outstanding medical texts that go indepth about its problems. With a global epidemic of aspartame disease you can't afford to not know the medical problems that are triggered or precipitated by this toxin. You can't afford to wonder because it may be your life. We are now in 2019 and let’s start off by being safe. Print out the Hospital form which has a chapter on drug interaction from Dr. H. J. Roberts medical text, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic", and make sure all your physicians and your hospital has it on your record. http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_hospital_form.htm It is extremely important. I was just in the hospital and it reminds me to warn you about Vanillin which is half the molecule of aspartame in Advantame. Because Vanillin is usually made with aspartame and there were reactions they started testing it. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1111/j.1365-2621.1988.tb07756.x The FDA ignored the reactions: https://hsionline.com/2014/06/09/aspartame-on-steroids Then the FDA allowed the approval of Advantame, half Vanillin and half aspartame. Someone gave me some Russell Stover candy and I ate a piece and reacted. Once someone has used aspartame they can be chemically hypersensitive for life as I am. It was given to me in generic prescriptions and I didn't know.
I looked on the box of candy and there it was Vanillin and also natural flavors which is where they can hide aspartame. But, how many people seeing Vanillin on a label would know they had consumed aspartame? The news is full of articles on opioids causing deaths but how many of the public know aspartame violently interacts with opioids. The hospital doesn't first ask if you're using aspartame and many might not even know they are using it. Always ask what they are giving you. In my case they were giving me the drug I had asked them not to use because many times it has aspartame. Be sure to see "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZI7_8FDzuJE Cheryl Kemptner told the hospital not to give her aspartame and a dietitian gave her Crystal Lite with aspartame and she became a Code Blue and they had to resuscitate her to save her life. This is the reason for the hospital form, to save your life.
Just recently Fox News did a story on the high rate of infertility in the US. https://www.google.com/search?q=Focx+News%2C+infertility&oq=Focx+News%2C+infertility&aqs=chrome..69i57j0.4455j0j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 Aspartame is an endocrine disrupting agent and causes infertility in both men and women. In original studies it caused neural tube defects, spina bifida and cleft palate for starters. There is no warning for birth defects. So start the year off right making sure you have no aspartame, sucralose or acesulfame potassium in your diet or kitchen. If you need a sweetener "Just Like Sugar" can be used, has safe organic ingredients.
Be safe in 2019!
