Aspartame (Part 2)

Aspartame is a poison that does not belong in our body, and this is not an exaggeration. Yet, this toxic substance is consumed by over 200 million people around the world and is found in more than 6,000 products.

Everything from soda and chewing gum to desserts, yogurt, and even some vitamins and cough drops contains it.

Here's a breakdown of aspartames three chemicals: the amino aspartic acid and phenylalanine, and methanol.

1. Aspartic acid (40% of aspartame)

Aspartame acts as a neurotransmitter in you brain by facilitating the transmission of information from neuron to neuron. Too much aspartate in your brain kills certain neurons by allowing the influx of too much calcium into your cells. This influx trigger excessive amounts of tree radicals, which kill cells.

The neural cell damage than can be caused by excessive aspartate is why Dr. Blaylock refers to them as "excitotooxins." The "excite" or stimulate your neural cells to death.

Now, when aspartic is consumed, it significantly raises your blood level of aspartate, which leads to a high level of those neurotransmitters in certain areas of your brain, where they slowly begin to destroy neurons.

Your brain cells could be dying right now, but you likely would not notice the symptoms until 75 percent or more are gone. Then, chronic illnesses such as the following, which may by caused by long-term exposure to excitatory amino acid damage, may occur:

  • Multiple scelorsis, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease
  • Memory and hearinf loss
  • Hormonal problems
  • Epilepsy
  • AIDS
  • Brain lesions
  • Neuroendocrine disorders

"I'm a Research Associate in the field of Child Development and Human Relations. I have a continuing program of research (What mother doesn't?) in the laboratory and in the field (normally I would have said indoors and out). I'm working for my Masters, (the whole darned family) and already have five credits (four sons & one daughter, 1 joined the working community, 4 are being educated @ home ). Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities (any mother care to disagree?), and I often work 14 hours a day (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers, and the rewards are more of a satisfaction than just money."
