08 Nov 2017 - 5 Reasons To Give Up Diet Soda: This Is What It Does To Your Body

01 Nov 2017 - Brazil: Aspartame: Advertising Unhealthy Food, A "Fat" Mess [Look at the statistics from when aspartame was approved. Aspartame makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight. Here is the quote from the congressional record which recorded the protest of the National Soft Drink Assn, now American Beverage. "Aspartame has been demonstrated to inhibit the carbohydrate-induced synthesis of the neurotransmitter serotonin (Wurtman affidavit). Serotonin blunts the sensation of craving carbohydrates and this is part of the body's feedback system that helps limit consumption of carbohydrate to appropriate levels. Its inhibition by aspartame could lead to the anomalous result of a diet product causing increased consumption of carbohydrates." Senate, S - 5511, May 7, l985 This is Dr. Richard Wurtman of MIT who fought like a tiger against aspartame during the Senate hearings but today he will no longer talk to the press. My neighbor built the Augusta aspartame factory which is now closed. He told me even though FDA told them not to market aspartame because they had found out about the dangerous studies, they were selling it anyway. It was originally approved in 1974. but legally approved through the political chicanery of Don Rumsfeld in 1981. He said it was poison and caused him to be very sick. With this in mind read the statistics on obesity below from 1975. Aspartame has caused a global epidemic of obesity. Dr. Sandra Cabot, Mission Possible Australia, said in an article titled "Aspartame Makes You Fatter": "After having been consulted by thousands of overweight people suffering with problems concerning the liver and/or metabolism I can assure you that aspartame will not help you in any way, indeed it will help you to gain unwanted weight. This has been my experience, and there are logical reasons to explain the fattening and bloating effects of aspartame. When you ingest the toxic chemical aspartame it is absorbed from the intestines and passes immediately to the LIVER where it is taken inside the liver via the liver filter. The liver then breaks down or metabolizes aspartame to its toxic components - phenylalanine, aspartic acid and methanol. This process requires a lot of energy from the liver which means there will be less energy remaining in the liver cells. This means the liver cells will have less energy for fat burning and metabolism, which will result in fat storing. Excess fat may build up inside the liver cells causing "fatty liver" and when this starts to occur it is extremely difficult to lose weight. In my vast experience any time that you overload the liver you will increase the tendency to gain weight easily. "Aspartame also causes weight gain by other mechanisms ---Causes unstable blood sugar levels, which increases the appetite and causes cravings for sweets/sugar. Thus it is particularly toxic for those with diabetes or epilepsy. Causes fluid retention giving the body a puffy and bloated appearance. This makes people look fatter than they are and increases cellulite" There are now 6 class actions having to do with "diet" foods with aspartame actually making you gain weight. We've known it for a long time and the biggest study was done on the consumer public. All countries should stop the import of aspartame. Dr. Betty Martini, D. Hum.]
