(NaturalHealth365) According to integrative healthcare providers and thousands of natural health experts, the artificial sweetener aspartame can cause brain tumors and other cancers, as well as a host of other devastating diseases and symptoms. Of course, the FDA – which approved aspartame in 1981 due to political pressure – denies any link between aspartame and cancer, or any other serious condition, and has no plans to ban this toxic substance.
As outrageous as this situation is, it is the shocking words of one FDA agent – quoted in the title above – that takes the matter to a whole new and more sinister level. In a momentous podcast interview with Jonathan Landsman, Dr. Betty Martini – as part of her tireless efforts to remove aspartame from the marketplace – reveals the true story behind this horrifying comment.
“Imminent health hazard” petition ignored by FDA for almost a decade
Dr. Betty Martini is the founder of Mission Possible World Health International, an organization dedicated to removing aspartame from food. Back in 2000, Dr. Martini petitioned the FDA with an “imminent health hazard” Citizens Petition calling for a ban on aspartame.
Although the FDA is required by law to respond to this type of petition within 180 days, Dr. Martini says they didn’t respond – until nine years later. And Martini says their response took the form of a late-night, personal phone call to her home.
Dr. Martini immediately pressed the FDA agent for an explanation as to why her petition had gone unanswered –“even though people are sick and dying” all over the world.
It was what the agent said next, Martini reports, that stunned her.
“So what? We need to depopulate,” the agent replied.
Dr. Martini, along with other activists, now maintains that there is a planned and orchestrated agenda to depopulate the planet.
Aspartame is abundant in so-called ‘diet’ foods
Sold under the brand names NutraSweet and Equal as a low-calorie alternative to sugar, aspartame exists in thousands of beverages and foods – particularly those marketed as “diet.” Produced by Pfizer (and originally by G.D. Searle), aspartame was approved by the FDA in 1980 – but this doesn’t indicate that it’s safe. It is, in fact, a neurotoxic and addictive chemical that damages cell mitochondria.
Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of all adverse reactions to food additives. According to Dr. Russell Blaylock, MD, a board-certified neurosurgeon and professor, the chemical can cause a long list of ills, including headaches, fatigue, dizziness, numbness, nausea, memory loss, seizures, vision loss and even sudden death. In addition, it can trigger or worsen multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer.
And, Mark Stengler, NMD, known as “America’s Natural doctor,” calls aspartame “the most dangerous food additive ever approved for human consumption.”
Aspartame can cause unwanted changes within the brain
Aspartame is made from two amino acids – aspartic acid and phenylalanine.
Aspartic acid can lead to high levels of the neurotransmitter aspartate in the brain, which can destroy neurons. In fact, because of the stimulating effect aspartic acid has on brain neurons, it is termed an excitotoxin. Natural health advocates say that damage from long-term exposure to excitatory amino acids in diet drinks can trigger multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
On top of that, excessive levels of phenylalanine in the brain have been shown to cause levels of serotonin to drop, leading to depression and other emotional problems.
And, finally, studies have shown that aspartame breaks down to methanol, which is converted in the body to formaldehyde – a proven carcinogen which damages DNA.
Heavy users of aspartame are exposed to amounts of methanol more than 30 times the daily limit recommended by the EPA. Symptoms of methanol poisoning include headaches, buzzing in the ears, vertigo, chills, memory lapses and vision problems.
Independent research confirms aspartame threat to human health
The FDA says the link with cancer “can’t be proven.” Dr. Martini points to over 900 studies showing the dangers of aspartame – which include brain tumors.
The American Cancer Society, which is usually associated with conventional mainstream medicine, notes on its website that more lymphomas and more cases of leukemia occur in rats fed very high doses of aspartame.
The CDC says that in 2010, one-fifth of all Americans drank an aspartame-containing diet soda on any given day – which means that tens of millions people could be adversely affected. In a cruel irony, it turns out that aspartame is not even effective as a diet aid, as it defeats the brain’s ability to detect serotonin and causes carbohydrate cravings.
In fact, it may even trigger weight gain. Russell Blaylock, MD, reports that aspartame can actually cause obesity, as well as metabolic syndrome – a cluster of unhealthy conditions including high blood pressure, elevated blood glucose, high levels of fats in the blood and excessive abdominal fat.
