TTAC is experiencing heavy censorship on many social media channels since we’ve been targeted by the mainstream media sellouts, social media bullies, and political turncoats. Be sure to get the TRUTH by subscribing to our email list. It’s free.
Note from Ty & Charlene: In 2006, we self published the book that started it all: Cancer – Step Outside the Box. We’ve received death threats against us and our children (and even had to flee the country to ensure our children’s safety from these shocking threats). CNN hacked us, lied about us, threatened and even doxxed us. But we hit back with the truth. We’ve been slandered and ridiculed. We’ve been called dangerous quacks and were even listed among the Disinformation Dozen. Since the beginning of 2020, we’ve been repeatedly censored, shadowbanned, and deplatformed – all for sharing the truth that they like to call “dangerous conspiracy theories.”
Of course, all of our claims have since been proven to be true, like that the virus originated in a lab, that masks are ineffective and dangerous, that children aren’t at risk, that the jabs didn’t work, cause myocarditis, and harm reproductive health. But being called crazy for sharing the truth long before it’s acknowledged by public health officials is nothing new.
WHO Validates Aspartame Warning… 17 Years Later
In our 2006 best-selling book, we dedicated an entire chapter to aspartame – the artificial sweetener found in diet soda and literally thousands of other “diet” or “sugar-free” foods and beverages. We warned that it could cause cancer, seizures, and other central nervous system disorders like dementia and Parkinson’s.
We were decried as anti-science conspiracy theorists.
Yesterday, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the World Health Organization’s cancer research arm, determined that aspartame is “possible carcinogenic.” According to an exclusive report by Reuters, the designation will go into effect in July.
“IARC is not a food safety body and their review of aspartame is not scientifically comprehensive and is based heavily on widely discredited research,” Frances Hunt-Wood, secretary general of the International Sweeteners Association (ISA), said.
But ISA members – including Mars Wrigley (a Coca-Cola subsidiary) and Cargill (a $165 billion food and agriculture corporation), said it had “serious concerns with the IARC review, which may mislead consumers”.
Of course they did. Admitting that their products aren’t safe can hurt their bottom line.
The following is an excerpt from Cancer – Step Outside the Box all about aspartame. These companies and regulators have been LYING to us for DECADES. But the TRUTH always wins in the end. Our mission from Day 1 has been to bring the life saving truth that was hidden from us when we lost 7 close family members to conventional cancer treatments due to censorship and propaganda hiding the many remedies to cancer by educating everyone in the world that cancer is NOT a death sentence and that as long as there’s breath, there’s hope! Before you grab that can of diet Coke, stick of Extra gum, or virtually any “sugar-free” product out there, make sure you know the risks…
Chapter 15: Aspartame
How about diet soda? Diet sodas are harmless, right? Diet sodas will help you lose weight, right? Wrong. A worldwide epidemic is raging. The cause is a poisonous chemical sweetener called aspartame (marketed as NutraSweet®, Equal®, and AminoSweet®), which is the most controversial food additive ever approved. This additive, which we have been led to believe is completely safe, is in reality a drug which interacts with other drugs and changes brain chemistry and causes multiple types of chronic illness, including cancer.
I briefly mentioned aspartame a couple of times earlier in the book, but due to the fact that it is extremely toxic, the fact that it is an ingredient in so many foods and drinks, and the sordid history of how it obtained FDA approval, I have devoted an entire chapter of the book. As I mentioned, aspartame is an excitotoxin, which simply means that it excites your brain cells to death. Dr. Russell Blaylock states that “the ingredients (in aspartame) stimulate the neurons of the brain to death causing brain damage of varying degrees.” (Excitotoxins: The Taste that Kills, 1994)
So what’s in aspartame? Aspartame is made of three components, 50% phenylalanine, 40% aspartic acid, and 10% methanol (wood alcohol). The methanol is widely distributed throughout the body including brain, muscle, fat and nervous tissue. This is important: when the temperature of aspartame exceeds 86° Fahrenheit, the methanol converts to formaldehyde (embalming fluid) and formic acid. What is the normal body temperature again? If I remember correctly, it’s 98.6°, isn’t it? So, when you ingest aspartame, it heats up above 86° and the methanol turns to formaldehyde, which enters the cells and binds to the proteins and DNA.
Phenylalanine is an amino acid typically found in the brain. Persons with the hereditary disorder phenylketonuria (PKU) are unable to metabolize phenylalanine. This results in dangerously high levels of phenylalanine in the brain, which is sometimes fatal. It has been shown that ingesting aspartame (especially along with carbohydrates) can lead to excess levels of phenylalanine in the brain even in persons who do not have PKU. In his testimony before the US Congress, Dr. Louis J. Elsas showed that high blood phenylalanine can be concentrated in parts of the brain and is especially dangerous for infants and fetuses. He also indicated that since it is metabolized much more efficiently by rodents than humans, testing and research on rats alone is not sufficient enough to denounce the dangers of aspartame for human consumption.
Phenylalanine also depletes serotonin; thus, it triggers all kinds of psychiatric and behavioral problems, including depression. I have heard it said that many mental institutions are full of patients who are nothing but aspartame victims. Remember the character Marty McFly in “Back to the Future”? Were it not for the phenylalanine in aspartame, which interferes with the brain’s uptake of L-Dopa, Michael J. Fox, a former Diet Pepsi spokesman, would likely never have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at age 30. It’s very possible that he would be healthy today and still making movies (“Back to the Future Part 27”) were it not for his consumption of Diet Pepsi.
Aspartic acid is also a component of aspartame. My friend, Dr. Russell L. Blaylock, MD, a professor of neurosurgery at the Medical University of Mississippi, recently published a book thoroughly detailing the damage that is caused by the ingestion of excessive aspartic acid from aspartame. Dr. Blaylock makes use of almost 500 scientific references to show how excess free excitatory amino acids such as aspartic acid and glutamic acid (about 99% of MSG is glutamic acid) in our food supply are causing serious chronic neurological disorders and a myriad of other acute symptoms. Much like nitrates and MSG, aspartic acid can cause amino acid imbalances in the body and result in the interruption of normal neurotransmitter metabolism of the brain.
Methanol (wood alcohol) is a toxic 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 encounters the enzyme chymotrypsin. Methanol breaks down into formic acid and formaldehyde (“embalming fluid”) in the body. According to the EPA, methanol “is considered a cumulative poison due to the low rate of excretion once it is absorbed. In the body, methanol is oxidized to formaldehyde and formic acid; both of these metabolites are toxic.”
The EPA’s recommended limit of consumption of methanol is 7.8 milligrams per day, but a one liter bottle of a beverage containing aspartame contains over 50 mg of methanol. How many folks do you know that drink a liter of soda pop each day? Heck, I know folks who drink 2 or 3 liters per day! According to a 1990 report by Kathleen Nauss and Robert Kavet entitled, “The Toxicity of Inhaled Methanol Vapors” (published in Critical Reviews in Toxicology), chronic, low-level exposure to methanol has been seen to cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, memory lapses, blurred vision, ear buzzing, gastrointestinal issues, weakness, vertigo, chills, numbness, behavioral disturbances, insomnia, neuritis, tunnel vision, depression, heart problems, and pancreatic inflammation.
But don’t many fruits and vegetables contain some methanol? Yes, they do, but they also contain a large amount of ethanol, which acts as a buffer and neutralizes methanol, thus preventing the conversion of methanol to formaldehyde. In aspartame, there is no such buffer.
Diketopiperazine (DKP) is a byproduct of aspartame metabolism and has been implicated in the occurrence of brain tumors. G.D. Searle conducted animal experiments on the safety of DKP. The FDA found numerous experimental errors occurred, including “clerical errors, mixed-up animals, animals not getting drugs they were supposed to get, pathological specimens lost because of improper handling,” and many other errors. These sloppy laboratory procedures may explain why both the test and control animals had 16 times more brain tumors than would be expected in experiments of this length.
Aspartame was accidentally discovered in 1965 by James Schlatter, a chemist at G.D. Searle Company (Searle), who licked some of a new ulcer drug from his fingers and discovered the sweet taste of aspartame. Eureka! Selling this chemical as a food additive to hundreds of millions of healthy people every day would mean many more dollars than limited sales to the much smaller group of ulcer sufferers. So, in 1967, Searle began the safety tests on aspartame which were necessary for applying for FDA approval of food additives. Early tests of the substance showed it produced microscopic holes and tumors in the brains of experimental mice, epileptic seizures in monkeys, and was converted by animals into hazardous substances, including formaldehyde.
In 1969, Searle hired Dr. Harold Waisman, a biochemist at the University of Wisconsin, to conduct aspartame safety tests on seven infant monkeys, who were fed aspartame mixed with milk. After 300 days, five of the monkeys had grand mal seizures and one died. (Remember the sprinter, Flo Jo, who drank Diet Coke and died of a grand mal seizure?) Dr. Waisman died before all of his studies were completed. In the spring of 1971, Dr. John Olney (a neuroscientist) informed Searle that his studies showed that aspartame caused holes in the brains of infant mice. Later that year, one of Searle’s own researchers confirmed Dr. Olney’s findings in a similar study. But Searle didn’t care…they were after their cash cow!
In 1973, Searle applied for FDA approval and submitted over 100 studies they claimed supported the safety of aspartame. One of the first FDA scientists to review the aspartame safety data stated that “the information provided (by Searle) is inadequate to permit an evaluation of the potential toxicity of aspartame.” According to the late Dr. Andrian Gross, Searle “…took great pains to camouflage these shortcomings of the study. As I say, filter and just present to the FDA what they wished the FDA to know, and they did other terrible things. For instance, animals would develop tumors while they were under study. Well, they would remove these tumors from the animals.”
Nevertheless, on July 26, 1974, the FDA approved aspartame for limited use in dry foods, making available to the public for the first time the data supporting their decision. This data was subsequently reviewed by renowned brain researcher John Olney from Washington University in St. Louis, who filed the first objection against aspartame’s approval.
Two years later in 1976, triggered by Olney’s objection, the FDA began an investigation of Searle’s laboratory practices. The investigation found their testing procedures shoddy, full of inaccuracies and “manipulated” test data. The investigators reported that they “had never seen anything as bad as Searle’s testing.” Then in 1977, a governmental task force uncovered that Searle had falsified data by submitting inaccurate blood tests. In another study, a closer look revealed that uterine tumors had developed in many of the test animals, and Searle admitted that these tumors were related to the ingestion of aspartame. The FDA formally requested that the U.S. Attorney’s office begin grand jury proceedings to investigate whether indictments should be filed against Searle for knowingly misrepresenting findings and “concealing material facts and making false statements” in aspartame safety tests.
While the grand jury probe was underway, Sidley & Austin, the law firm representing Searle, began job negotiations with the U.S. Attorney in charge of the investigation, Samuel Skinner. In July 1977, Skinner resigned and took a job with Searle’s law firm. The resignation of Skinner stalled the grand jury investigation for so long that the statute of limitations lapsed. Eventually, the grand jury investigation was dropped.
In 1979, the FDA established a Public Board of Inquiry (PBOI) to rule on safety issues surrounding aspartame. A year later, the PBOI concluded that aspartame should not be approved pending further investigations of brain tumors in animals, and based on its limited review, the PBOI blocked aspartame marketing until the tumor studies could be explained.
Unless the FDA commissioner overruled the board, the matter was closed. But in 1980, Ronald Reagan was elected President of the United States, and his transition team included Donald Rumsfeld, CEO of G. D. Searle. According to a former G.D. Searle salesperson, Patty Wood-Allott, Rumsfeld told his sales force that, if necessary, “he would call in all his markers and that no matter what, he would see to it that aspartame would be approved that year.” (Gordon 1987, page 499 of U.S. Senate, 1987) Not surprisingly, the transition team picked Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes Jr. to be the new FDA Commissioner. Hayes was widely profiled as a man who believed that approval for new drugs and additives was too slow because “the FDA demanded too much information.”
In May of 1981, three of six in-house FDA scientists who were responsible for reviewing the brain tumor issues advised against approval of aspartame, stating on the record that the Searle tests were unreliable and not adequate to determine the safety of aspartame. However, in July of that same year, in one of his first official acts, Dr. Hayes, the new FDA commissioner, overruled the PBOI and officially approved aspartame for all dry products. In 1982, Searle filed a petition that aspartame be approved as a sweetener in carbonated beverages and other liquids.
Almost immediately, the National Soft Drink Association (NSDA) urged the FDA to delay approval of aspartame for carbonated beverages pending further testing because aspartame is very unstable in liquid form. As I have already mentioned, when liquid aspartame is stored in temperatures above 86° Fahrenheit, it breaks down into formic acid and formaldehyde, both of which are known toxins. Despite the public outcry, in 1983, the FDA approved aspartame for soft drinks and the first carbonated beverages containing aspartame were sold for public consumption.
Shortly after aspartame was approved for beverages, complaints began to arrive at the FDA. Reactions such as dizziness, blurred vision, memory loss, slurred speech, headaches, and seizures were common with consumption of drinks containing aspartame. The complaints were more serious than the agency had ever received on any food additive. In just the first several years after aspartame was approved for beverages, the FDA received over 10,000 complaints about aspartame. In February of 1994, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released the listing of adverse reactions reported to the FDA. Amazingly, aspartame accounted for more than 75% of all adverse reactions reported to the FDA’s Adverse Reaction Monitoring System. By the FDA’s own admission, fewer than 1% of consumers who have adverse reactions to products ever report it to the FDA. This balloons the 10,000 complaints to around a million!
In 1985, Dr. Adrian Gross told Congress that because aspartame was capable of producing brain tumors and brain cancer, the FDA should not have been able to set an “allowable” daily intake of the substance at any level. His last words to Congress were, “And if the FDA violates its own law, who is left to protect the public?” (August 1, 1985, Congressional Record, SID835:131)
From 1985 to 1995, researchers did about 400 aspartame studies. Dr. Ralph G. Walton reviewed all the studies on aspartame and found 166 with relevance for human safety. Of those 166 studies, 74 were funded by Searle, 85 were independent, and 7 were funded by the FDA. The results will amaze you, but probably won’t surprise you. Of the 74 studies funded by Searle, all of them gave aspartame a clean bill of health. However, of the 85 studies that were not funded by Big Pharma or the FDA, 84 of them found aspartame to be dangerous to one’s health. These studies reported a range of side effects including fibromyalgia, brain tumors, memory loss, lymphoma, leukemia, and peripheral nerve cancer.
In the most comprehensive, longest-ever running study on aspartame as a human carcinogen (over two million person-years), researchers analyzed data from the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study for a 22-year period. This landmark study was published in late 2012. Over 77,000 women and over 47,000 men were included in the analysis, for a total of almost 2.3 million person-years of data. Apart from sheer size, what makes this study superior to other past studies is the thoroughness with which aspartame intake was assessed. Every two years, participants were given a detailed dietary questionnaire, and their diets were reassessed every four years. Previous studies which found no link to cancer only assessed participants’ aspartame intake at one point in time, as opposed to every two years (for two decades) in this study.
The findings were alarming, so say the least. One diet soda a day increases leukemia risk by 42% (in men and women), multiple myeloma risk by 102% (men only), and non-Hodgkin lymphoma risk by 31% (men only).
A 2012 University of Miami study, which was published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, admitted that drinking one diet soda a day increases the risk of heart attack and strokes by a whopping 44%. This was no small study. The research involved over 2,500 participants over a period of ten years. Of course, this has been known for decades and is discussed in Dr. H. J. Roberts, M.D.’s medical textbook, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic. Are you still craving that diet soda now? How about a stick in the eye? Or better yet, how about eating a bag of feces? Why do I mention poop? Because the patent for aspartame is available online and it confirms that the sweetener is made from the waste (i.e. “poop”) produced by genetically modified E. coli bacteria! Yuck!
As if being “fecal matter” weren’t enough to turn your stomach, aspartame is also considered to be an “excitotoxin.” Since humans lack a blood-brain barrier in the hypothalamus, excitotoxins are able to enter the brain and cause damage by reacting with specialized receptors (neurons) in such a way as to lead to the destruction of certain types of brain cells. In other words, they excite your brain cells to death! Aspartame accounts for over 75% of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious, including seizures and death.
The truth of the matter is that the FDA has always known aspartame is a carcinogen. The late Dr. Adrian Gross (FDA toxicologist) told Congress that without a shadow of a doubt aspartame triggers brain tumors and brain cancers and violates the Delaney Amendment which forbids putting anything in food you know will cause cancer. As Dr. James Bowen told the FDA, the manufacturers of aspartame have damaged a generation of children and should be criminally prosecuted for genocide for the mass poisoning of the USA and hundreds of other countries of the world.
In early 2010, aspartame producer Ajinomoto launched a new initiative to rebrand this toxic sweetener as “AminoSweet®,” to remind us that it is made from amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. Oh, isn’t that special? People will feel all warm and fuzzy and believe that it must be healthy. After all, amino acids are good, aren’t they?
Don’t fall for the slick marketing ploy. This is deception at its finest: Begin with a shred of truth, and then “spin it” to fit your own agenda, which in this case appears to be to convince us that this is just a “healthy sweetener” made from amino acids which are already present in our bodies. But whether you call it NutraSweet® or Equal® or AminoSweet®, the aspartic acid in aspartame is a well-documented “excitotoxin.” And as I mentioned previously, aspartame was once on a Pentagon list of biowarfare chemicals submitted to Congress!
Truth be told, aspartame triggers every kind of birth defect from autism to cleft palate, and it is also an “abortifacient,” which is defined as a drug that induces abortion. It’s normal for young girls to look forward to marriage and children. However, many young girls sip on diet soda not realizing that aspartame is an endocrine disrupting agent which changes the menstrual flow and causes infertility. Sadly, many ladies who grew up drinking diet soda never know why they were unable to have children. And if that’s not enough reasons to avoid aspartame, studies have shown that aspartame is toxic to the liver, makes you crave carbohydrates, precipitates diabetes, and actually makes you gain weight! www.mpwhi.com
So, when the FDA tells us that aspartame has been proven to be safe, rest assured that it is basing its findings on the fraudulent Searle studies (i.e., they are “lying through their teeth”). Then, when the JAMA, examining the FDA findings (which are based on the fraudulent Searle studies), announces that “the consumption of aspartame poses no health risk for most people,” don’t believe it!
I highly recommend that you watch “Sweet Misery” (a documentary on aspartame). You can see the trailer and the first five minutes here: http://aspartamekills.com.
Despite the fact that the FDA claims that aspartame is safe, the toxic effects of aspartame are documented by the FDA’s own data. In 1995, the FDA was forced, under the Freedom of Information Act, to release a list of 92 aspartame symptoms reported by thousands of victims. It appears this is only the tip of the iceberg. Dr. H. J. Roberts published the medical text “Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic” which contains over 1,000 pages of symptoms and diseases triggered by this excitotoxin, including the sordid history of its approval.
Oh yes, I almost forgot the “icing on the corruption cake.” In 1985, G.D. Searle was absorbed by Monsanto. Donald Rumsfeld reportedly received a $12 million bonus. Who said that the wicked never prosper?
Got a sweet tooth? I recommend stevia, an herbal sweetener, as a healthy alternative.
