At the World Environmental Conference, a paper was given on Aspartame, which is sold as NutraSweet and Equal. There has been an epidemic in the U.S. of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus.
Here's some facts: when aspartame exceeds 86 degrees, the wood alcohol in it converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid (this is the poison found in fire ants). This mimics the symptoms of multiple sclerosis.
Systemic lupus is showing up in people who drink three to four 12 oz. cans of Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi per day. Eliminating the soda doesn't eliminate this disease.
With Multiple sclerosis, when the Aspartane is eliminated, most of the symptoms disappear.
Here's a list of diseases that may be Aspartane-caused: fibromyalgia, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision or memory loss.
You need to eliminate Aspartames from your diet.
