What Really Causes Lupus and MS?

Are You Drinking Poison Every Day?

There is an epidemic of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Systemic Lupus in America. I've always thought that the underlying cause of these systemic and nervous system diseases were somehow related to some alien poison in our food and drink. And I was right!

It is my contention, and that of many other serious health researchers, that the answer is simple: Aspartame, commonly known by its trademark name of NutraSweet or Equal, is a poison in our food and drinks.

Let me explain why I believe Aspartame is so dangerous:

When the temperature of this sweetener reaches 86 degrees F, the methanol (wood alcohol) in ASPARTAME converts to Formaldehyde and then to Formic Acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis in the body.

Formic acid, by the way, is the poison found in the sting of fire ants.

Many people were, and still are, being diagnosed in error. Although Multiple Sclerosis is not a death sentence, methanol toxicity is!

Aspartame was initially discovered in 1965 and considered by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) as a potential biological warfare neurotoxin. After the FDA itself kept Aspartame off the market for 15 years, it was approved for use in dry goods in 1981 and then for carbonated beverages in 1983. It was approved for use in all foods in the EU in 1994 and USA in 1996.

Systemic Lupus has become almost as rampant as Multiple Sclerosis, especially among Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. And most do not make the connection that Aspartame is the culprit. He or she continues its use; irritating the Lupus to such a degree that it becomes a life-threatening condition.

Once off diet sodas, we have seen people with Systemic Lupus become asymptotic. In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. We've seen many situations where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly. This also applies to cases of Tinnitus and Fibromyalgia.

If you are using Aspartame and you suffer from any of these issues, you likely have Aspartame poisoning!

  • fibromyalgia symptoms
  • spasms
  • shooting pains
  • numbness in your legs
  • cramps
  • vertigo or dizziness
  • headaches
  • tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • joint pain
  • unexplainable depression
  • anxiety attacks
  • slurred speech
  • blurred vision
  • or memory loss

Diet Soda is NOT a Diet Drink!

Diet soda is a chemically altered, multiple sodium (salt) solution. Any product containing Aspartame will cause you to crave carbohydrates, making it far more likely you will gain weight! (A pretty good combination if you are in the business of selling diet drinks.)

These products also contain formaldehyde, which stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs. Formaldehyde is an absolute toxin and is used primarily to preserve tissue specimens.

Many products we use every day contain formaldehyde, but we should not store it in our body!

Dr. H. J. Roberts has stated in his lectures and books that once diet products are eliminated, and without significant increase in exercise, his patients lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period.

Aspartame is Especially Dangerous for Diabetics

We found that some physicians, who believed that they had a patient with retinopathy, in fact, had a a patient with symptoms caused by Aspartame. The Aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control. Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid is neurotoxic when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance.

Resolving diabetes is all about balance. Especially with diabetics, the Aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier and it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain; causing various levels of brain damage, seizures, depression, manic depression, panic attacks, uncontrollable anger and rage. Consumption of Aspartame causes these same symptoms in non-diabetics as well.

Documentation and observation also reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with Attention Deficit (ADD and ADHD) have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when these chemicals have been removed from their diet.

So called behavior modification prescription drugs (Ritalin, Adderall and others) are no longer needed - they were never needed in the first place! Most of these children were being poisoned on a daily basis with the very foods that were supposedly better for them than sugar.

It is also suspected that the Aspartame in thousands of pallets of Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome.

Dr. Roberts warns that Aspartame can cause birth defects, such as mental retardation, if taken at the time of conception and during early pregnancy.

Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should never be given artificial sweeteners. There are numerous case histories of children suffering grand mal seizures and other neurological disturbances.

Herein Lies the Problem

Congressional Hearings were held when Aspartame was included in 100 different products and strong objection was raised concerning its use. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, and still nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets. Since Monsanto's patent on Aspartame expired, thousands of food products containing this deadly chemical have been introduced into the marketplace.

I find it ironic that Monsanto contributes to the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic Association and the Conference of the American College of Physicians, among others. This was recently exposed in the New York Times. These organizations cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to Monsanto because they take money from the food industry and are required to endorse their products.

Senator Howard Metzenbaum wrote and presented a bill that would require label warnings on products containing Aspartame, especially regarding pregnant women, children and infants. The bill would also institute independent studies on the known dangers and the problems existing in the general population regarding seizures, changes in brain chemistry, neurological changes and behavioral symptoms.

The bill was killed.

It is known that the powerful drug and chemical lobbies are responsible for this, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting and uninformed public. Well, you're informed now! You have a right to know.

Further Tips & Suggestions:

  • Apart from eliminating NutraSweet/Equal and all other artificial sweeteners, cut out all High Fructose Corn Syrup drinks.They are just as poisonous.
  • Ditto for milk, cheese, ice cream, butter and melted cheese pizzas. Switch to soy milk or cashew milk or almond milk.
  • Get at least 5000iu's of vitamin D every day. Vitamin D has shown dramatic effect on both MS and Lupus when taken daily. Get our Ultra D3 formula.
  • Exercise every single day for 45 minutes in early morning sunlight. The benefits are amazing. Remember, every, single, day. That's 7 days a week - not two or three.
