Aspartame - An Intense Source Of Excitotoxins
Choose healthy fresh fruit waters over Aspartame sweetened drinks
Aspartame is a sweetener made from two amino acids, phenylalanine and the excitotoxin aspartate. It should be avoided at all costs. Aspartame complaints accounts for approximately 70% of ALL complaints to the FDA. It is implicated in everything from blindness to headaches to convulsions. Sold under dozens of brand names such as NutraSweet and Equal, aspartame breaks down within 20 minutes at room temperature into several primary toxic and dangerous ingredients:
DKP (diketopiperazine) (When ingested, converts to a near duplicate of a powerful brain tumor causing agent)
Formic Acid (ant venom)
Formaldehyde (embalming fluid)
Methanol (causes blindness...extremely dangerous substance)
Diet soft drinks, sugar free gums, sugar free Kool Aid, Crystal Light, childrens' medications, and thousands of other products claiming to be 'low calorie', 'diet', or 'sugar free'.
A Final Note ... Dr. Blaylock recounted a meeting with a senior executive in the food additive industry who told him point blank that these excitotoxins are going to be in our food no matter how many name changes are necessary.
