I congratulate the American Academy of Pediatrics for wanting pop machines to be removed from schools. But I would like to discuss the real reason. Obviously, too much sugar is not good for you but I grew up as a teenager before the days of aspartame when people were slim. It is aspartame that has caused this epidemic of obesity. First of all, its a neurotoxic drug and not an additive and in the protest of the National Soft Drink Association which was made part of the congressional record, it was even mentioned that it made you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight and was not a diet product. It also makes the liver so toxic that it would be very difficult to lose weight. If you want to get fat NutraSweet is where it's at.

Even more important is that aspartame destroys the brain as a study showed in Norway. If you go to http://www.greatfallspro.com you can get a CD for about $5.00 which has the famed Dr. John Olney's testimony to the Board of Inquiry of the FDA telling them what would happen to the brains of our children. this prophecy has been fulfilled with ADD, ADHD, Tourettes and autism rampant. Dr. Olney founded the field of neuroscience called excitotoxicity when he did the studies on aspartic acid, 40% of aspartame and found it caused lesions in the brains of mice. An excitotoxin is a product that literally stimulates the neurons of the brain to death. Read Dr. Olney's CV on http://www.dorway.com. Also, on this CD is the Congressional Record of l985 as well as the original Board of Inquiry of the FDA declaring aspartame unsafe, causing brain tumors and saying to revoke the petition for approval. Obviously aspartame was approved because of politics after Don Rumsfeld, then CEO of Searle, said he would call in his markers and get it approved anyway. The story is in the article on the aspartame epidemic below. Russell Blaylock, M.D. wrote the book on Excitotoxins - Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills. He is a neurosurgeon and his web site is http://www.russellblaylockmd.com.

Furthermore, today Aspartame Disease has been declared a global plague by H. J.Roberts, M.D. who wrote the medical text on it, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, http://www.sunsentpress.com or 1-800-827-7991. There is even a chapter on drug interaction and aspartame interacts with just about every drug used to treat the problems it causes. Aspartame is a seizure trigger drug and interacts with Dilantin and like drugs. It is escalating Asthma and some of asthma drugs even have aspartame in it. It damages the cardiac conduction system and causes sudden death. It triggers an irregular heart rhythm and interacts with all cardiac medication. Children in school playing athletics are dropping dead as well as adult athletes and others. Read the press releases on http://www.wnho.net.

Aspartame can precipitate diabetes, simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy. It causes diabetics to go into convulsions, keeps blood sugar out of control and even interacts with insulin. Dr. Roberts who wrote the medical text is a diabetic specialist and his position paper on this is on www.dorway.com Aspartame interacts with Coumadin. The 50% phenylalanine as an isolate is neurotoxic and goes directly into the brain as Dr. Richard Wurtman of MIT told Congress. It lowers seizure threshold and depletes serotonin. Lowered serotonin triggers manic depression or bipolar, mood swings, suicidal tendencies, paranoia, hallucinations, insomnia, panic attacks, anxiety, etc. and interacts with ALL antidepressants. Aspartame can precipitate Parkinsons and interacts with L-dopa.

Aspartic acid, the excitotoxic component of aspartame does not cross the blood brain barrier but is secreted into the cerebral spinal fluid by the choroid plexus located in the ventricles of the brain. There, in the brain's lower area and upper terminus of the spinal cord is where Lou Gehrigs, Parkinson's Disease and Multiple Sclerosis damage is most prominent. These critical locations are bathed in the toxin as it removes from the blood. From the third to fourth ventricle there is a narrow canal called the sylvan aqueduct which fills with this secretion and washes the roof of the hypothalamus. And this horrible chemical poison which also causes polychemical sensitivity syndrome and interacts with vaccines - is being fed to our kids!! The stuff breaks down to diketopiperazine, a brain tumor agent that triggered brain tumors in original studies!

Of all people you should be getting out the word on what aspartame is doing to our kids.
