    H. J. Roberts, M.D. has declared Aspartame Disease a world plague. Mid May you will be able to get a copy of his medical text on the world epidemic at www.sunsentpress.com/ or by calling 1 800 814-9800. This is the only way physicians are going to be able to diagnose the patients. There is a chapter for physicians on how to treat aspartame patients. Aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal/Spoonful, etc.) destroys the central nervous system and mimics MS. It triggers lupus epidemically because it is an adjuvant and forms antigenic tissue, triggering immunologic attack. The ability of methyl alcohol/formaldehyde to create antigenicity, especially as combined in aspartame molecules is so great as to cause severe autoimmune reactions to the tissues deformed by formaldehyde polemerization, adduct formation. The immune system turns against the victim's tissues: Lupus. It triggers neurodegenerative disease such as Parkinson's. Consider Michael Fox, a Diet Pepsi spokesman with it at the age of 30. His drugs don't work because aspartame changes the dopamine level of the brain. Aspartame is not an additive but a drug that changes brain chemistry and interacts with drugs such as Coumadin, Dilantin, Inderal, Methyldopa or Aldomet, insulin and lidocaine. More information on www.dorway.com and www.holisticmed.com/aspartame (the latter the Aspartame Toxicity Center). We have four support groups on line, one in Spanish.

    Any claim that a disease can ONLY be diagnosed via a specific individual or lab is questionable at best.

    Welcome back, Ms. Martini. Shall we begin the evidence-based medicine sparring once more?

    Oh my God.. I think all the coffee I drink has given me a brain tumor. If I don't have my first cup by 9:00 am, I get a terrible headache. It is only resolved when I drink more coffee, so I think the tumor has taken over my brain and forced me to drink coffee.

    Does the enlightened soul who posted this thread have any helpful tips or books I COULD BUY telling me how a physician could diagnose this? Perhaps if I sleep on a bed of magnets after rubbing my body with skunk turds....

    Oh, sweet jesus! I think that I have gotten a tumor that is situated in my thalamic region. I just can't pass up old donuts and stale coffee at the hospital. And I thought that it was my fault! Damn you sweet diet mountain dew!

    So where is Betty? Funny that she suddenly disappeared.

    well, I hope someone tell Michael J. Fox that he has this, because all this time he has been wasting good fund-raising research dollars on Parkinson's.

    In the "real world" Betty, it is best to check your sources before your go diagnosing the stars. Upon checking your sources, you would realize that Parkinsonian tremors are rest tremors, and the excessive movements seen by MJF are a result of his medications doing their job. Specifically, the drug he is taking, Sinemet, is making up for the dopamine lacking in his brain, which is the cause for the hyperkinesias that you describe as drug failure.

    I checked out that link you listed for the aspartame patients recounts. I hope, for the sake of your cause, that you have some laboratory and clinical proof to back up your claims. Quoting some lady who writes in about her aspartame poisoning:

    "I have had headaches for 10 years. I used to think it was due to the brain surgery I had for an aneurysm, now I know it is the diet coke I have once a day. Thanks Betty!"

    Ok, I'm done.

    Ryan

    Hey, the skunk poop worked. But it was hell following that skunk around with a pooper scooper.

    Actually it is true! But only if you drink diet soda while eating Pop Rocks. And yes; the skunk poop works. It contains a chemical called trans-alpha-dehydromethylsulfonyl-pukamine. It works by activating skin receptors that trigger a neural response, ridding the brain of aspartame and other noxious toxins (by astrocyte active membrane transport through the blood-brain barrier), where it is carried by the blood stream specifically to the stomach. This then excites the stomach lining, activating a vagal response ending in projectile emesis. Only one doctor has been able to produce these results in a cotrolled manner. His name is Dr. Nick Riviera from Springfield. I forget which state, but his article can be found in Snake Oil Journal. The man is very congenial and has excellent bedside manners; hence, he is a great doctor.

    Hey Pilot-- I was wondering what that smell was in lecture yesterday.. Perhaps you should try using albino armadillo tears instead. It contains lower amounts of trans-alpha-dehydromethylsulfonyl-pukamine that Dino was speaking of, but the upshoot is that it also contains cis-alpha-dihidroxysulfonyl-sexamine that is guaranteed to induce females (even wives) into sex crazed maniacs... Just be careful where you use it...

    take it easy

    I have checked the web site mentionned by GeoLeoX, and must say that it never ceases to amaze me how people will believer the worst possible crap. People, please! Where is your scientific thinking? You can't trust unsupported annecdotal evidence. Back where I come from there was an old myth that if you drank milk after eating lobster, you would die; because that's what happened to Jo Blo's brother's wife. Everyone believed it! Now Nutrasweet will give you MS like symptoms? What if the aspartame guzzler had another undiagnosed condition that mimmicks the vague symptoms of early MS?

    What next? Black silent helicopters spying on us? Oops! I said too much!

    Ha, ha. One must remove the plank from one's own eye before removing the speck from another's. Cute, Geo.

    We could rile up the original poster and start talking about fluoride...

    I don't get it?

    What's wrong with drinking sodas with sugar?

    As long as you exercise regularly and do not overdose on the high glycemic stuff, you should be fine (1 or 2 sodas a day won't kill you).

    Also, if you start to develop a type 2 diabetes, by your forties, you can take Metaformin to increase your insulin sensitivity.

    Forget this nutrasweet crap.

    On a serious note, nutrasweet has been proven to induce males and females to sport a mullet haircut. Scientists continue to research this phenomenon.

    Please see www.mulletsgalore.com for further details.

    Darn the luck. I couldn't find a skunk last night, so I followed my dog around for 1/2 hour and that poop didn't work. So we now have proof, via my CASE STUDY, that skunk poop cures brain tumors, but that they will return upon discontinuing treatment. [​IMG] Where do I go for the NIH grant money and what journal will publish my "work"?

    Dear Pilot.
    You may get a grant for your research.
    Just contact the following organization:

    World Endeavor for Innovative Research and Development of Sciences of Holistic Integrated Therapies

    I think they go by some sort of acronym for short.

    This is great. My uncle did that about aspartame, and nobody would believe me and my dad that it is complete BS. Now my uncle and grandmother stay away from Aspartame.

    Betty, I think you need to lay off the martinis.

    If it's a serious condition, then it would be published in literature. The situation you describe has been a classic internet hoax. I must get one email a month describing what you describe. There is no link between aspartame and MS. There is, however, a link between MS and geography. Does your precious doctor also advocate moving closer to the equator so you can reduce your incidence of MS? (Don't tell me they drink less diet drinks in Panama City, which they probably do... but the US drinks more than Canada, and Canada has a higher incidence of MS than the US).

    Anyone care to write a script for some Vitamin H for Ms. Martini?
