- MSG and Aspartame,
Two Known Toxins, are Found in Almost Every Type of Food and Beverage Americans
Consume by Julie K. Diaz
Why does the FDA continue to allow food industry giants to add toxic substances to our food and beverages, especially those marketed to children? Solid research studies have shown links between MSG and Aspartame, with ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Brain tumors, Depression, and even rage disorder and paranoia. In light of the increasing violence in schools, including mass murders, like those at Columbine, why doesn't the FDA take immediate action and look ONLY at research that is NOT biased due to funding by the Glutamate industry?
Food and Beverages
that contain Aspartame by Julie K. Diaz
This article provides a list of foods and beverages that typically contain Aspartame, or Nutrasweet (Equal).
Deadly Deception of Aspartame by the FDA and Searle
"The Deadly Deception" cites chapter and verse of the coverup by Searle and the FDA. Here are some highlights from the book "The Deadly Deception": http://www.mercola.com
Ignores Complaints of Neurological Symptoms
In 1989, the FDA received over 4,000 complaints from people who described adverse reactions. Research also indicates that aspartame, when combined with glutamine products (such as MSG, widely used in foods) increase the likelihood of brain damage occurring in children. http://www.mercola.com
- avoid it - Dangerous symptoms
A double blind study of the effects of aspartame on persons with mood disorders was recently conducted by Dr Ralph G. Walton. The study showed a large increase in serious symptoms for persons taking aspartame. Since some of the symptoms were so serious, the Institutional Review Board had to stop the study. http://www.mercola.com
- AKA WOOD ALCOHOL or POISON - 10% Of Aspartame
Methanol/wood alcohol is a deadly poison. Some people may remember methanol as the poison that has caused some "skid row" alcoholics to end up blind or dead. Methanol is gradually released in the small intestine when the methyl group of aspartame encounter the enzyme chymotrypsin. http://www.mercola.com
Visited Health Sites on the Net
Of all the medical journals in the world, only the British Medical Journal now has more traffic than this site. More people visit this site than the New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA, and the Lancet. This article shows the top Natural Health Sites and the top General Health Sites. http://www.mercola.com
Stevia comes from a shrub native to Paraguay, Stevia rebaudiana. It also grows in Brazil and Argentina, and is now widely cultivated in China. The leaves have been used for centuries by native peoples to make sweet teas, or to sweeten other foods, with no evidence of adverse reactions. http://www.drweil.com

Bitter Truth About Artificial sweeteners
Aspartame sugar substitutes cause worrying symptoms from memory loss to brain tumours. But despite US FDA approval as a 'safe' food additive, aspartame is one of the most dangerous substances ever to be foisted upon an unsuspecting public.
