Interaction of nucleotides with Asp(351) and the conserved phosphorylation loop of sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase. (1/86)

The nucleotide binding properties of mutants with alterations to Asp(351) and four of the other residues in the conserved phosphorylation loop, (351)DKTGTLT(357), of sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase were investigated using an assay based on the 2', 3'-O-(2,4,6-trinitrophenyl)-8-azidoadenosine triphosphate (TNP-8N(3)-ATP) photolabeling of Lys(492) and competition with ATP. In selected cases where the competition assay showed extremely high affinity, ATP binding was also measured by a direct filtration assay. At pH 8.5 in the absence of Ca(2+), mutations removing the negative charge of Asp(351) (D351N, D351A, and D351T) produced pumps that bound MgTNP-8N(3)-ATP and MgATP with affinities 20-156-fold higher than wild type (K(D) as low as 0.006 microM), whereas the affinity of mutant D351E was comparable with wild type. Mutations K352R, K352Q, T355A, and T357A lowered the affinity for MgATP and MgTNP-8N(3)-ATP 2-1000- and 1-6-fold, respectively, and mutation L356T completely prevented photolabeling of Lys(492). In the absence of Ca(2+), mutants D351N and D351A exhibited the highest nucleotide affinities in the presence of Mg(2+) and at alkaline pH (E1 state). The affinity of mutant D351A for MgATP was extraordinarily high in the presence of Ca(2+) (K(D) = 0.001 microM), suggesting a transition state like configuration at the active site under these conditions. The mutants with reduced ATP affinity, as well as mutants D351N and D351A, exhibited reduced or zero CrATP-induced Ca(2+) occlusion due to defective CrATP binding.  (+info)

On the sweetness of N-(trifluoroacetyl)aspartame. (2/86)

A panel of tasters has found that the N-trifluoroacetyl derivative of aspartame is five times less sweet than the parent compound, contrary to the tenet in the literature, but consistent with sweet receptor models which require this nitrogen to exist in protonated form.  (+info)

Genetic taste responses to 6-n-propylthiouracil among adults: a screening tool for epidemiological studies. (3/86)

Genetically mediated taste responsiveness to 6-n-propylthiouracil (PROP) has been linked to reduced acceptance of some bitter foods. In this community-based study male (n = 364) and female (n = 378) adults enrolled in a self-help dietary intervention trial were screened for PROP taster status. Respondents, aged 18--70 years, were mailed filter papers impregnated with PROP or with aspartame solutions. They received instructions to rate taste intensity and hedonic preference using nine point category scales. Women rated PROP as more bitter than did men. Both sweetness and bitterness ratings were lower for older adults. Taste responsiveness to PROP was unrelated to body mass index in women or men. Higher bitterness ratings for PROP were weakly associated with higher sweetness ratings for aspartame, but were unrelated to sweet taste preferences. Successful administration of PROP filter papers by mail suggests new avenues for the screening of taste phenotypes in epidemiological studies.  (+info)

Whole nerve chorda tympani responses to sweeteners in C57BL/6ByJ and 129P3/J mice. (4/86)

The C57BL/6ByJ (B6) strain of mice exhibits higher preferences than does the 129P3/J (129) strain for a variety of sweet tasting compounds. We measured gustatory afferent responses of the whole chorda tympani nerve in these two strains using a broad array of sweeteners and other taste stimuli. Neural responses were greater in B6 than in 129 mice to the sugars sucrose and maltose, the polyol D-sorbitol and the non-caloric sweeteners Na saccharin, acesulfame-K, SC-45647 and sucralose. Lower neural response thresholds were also observed in the B6 strain for most of these stimuli. The strains did not differ in their neural responses to amino acids that are thought to taste sweet to mice, with the exception of L-proline, which evoked larger responses in the B6 strain. Aspartame and thaumatin, which taste sweet to humans but are not strongly preferred by B6 or 129 mice, did not evoke neural responses that exceeded threshold in either strain. The strains generally did not differ in their neural responses to NaCl, quinine and HCl. Thus, variation between the B6 and 129 strains in the peripheral gustatory system may contribute to differences in their consumption of many sweeteners.  (+info)

Application of the U and gamma' models in binary sweet taste mixtures. (5/86)

The U and Gamma' models of sensory interactions, successfully applied in olfaction for several years, are tested here using data from published studies on sweetness. The models are subsequently tested on new data obtained in studies of binary mixtures of four sodium sulfamates. The U model allows for the estimation of a global interaction, whereas the Gamma' model allows for the distinction between that which is due to an intrinsic interaction in the mixture itself and that which may be due to the power function exponents in the mixture. The models give satisfactory predictions for observed phenomena of sweet taste suppression, synergism or pure additivity. Additionally, they appear to be more suitable than other models recently applied in taste, particularly the equiratio model. Application of the models to the sulfamate mixtures, reveals additivity for sodium cyclohexylsulfamate (cyclamate)/potassium cyclohexylsulfamate and sodium cyclohexylsulfamate/sodium exo-2-norbornylsulfamate, respectively; whereas for sodium cyclohexylsulfamate/sodium 3-bromophenylsulfamate, the models revealed a slight hypo addition which is simply due to the dissimilarity values of the power function exponents of the components.  (+info)

The effect of various substances on the suppression of the bitterness of quinine-human gustatory sensation, binding, and taste sensor studies. (6/86)

The purpose of this study was to quantify the degree of suppression of the perceived bitterness of quinine by various substances and to examine the mechanism of bitterness suppression. The following compounds were tested for their ability to suppress bitterness: sucrose, a natural sweetener; aspartame, a noncaloric sweetener; sodium chloride (NaCl) as the electrolyte; phosphatidic acid, a commercial bitterness suppression agent; and tannic acid, a component of green tea. These substances were examined in a gustatory sensation test in human volunteers, a binding study, and using an artificial taste sensor. Sucrose, aspartame, and NaCl were effective in suppressing bitterness, although at comparatively high concentrations. An almost 80% inhibition of bitterness (calculated as concentration %) of a 0.1 mM quinine hydrochloride solution required 800 mM of sucrose, 8 mM of aspartame, and 300 mM NaCl. Similar levels of bitterness inhibition by phosphatidic acid and tannic acid (81.7, 61.0%, respectively) were obtained at much lower concentrations (1.0 (w/v)% for phosphatidic acid and 0.05 (w/v)% for tannic acid). The mechanism of the bitterness-depressing effect of phosphatidic acid and tannic acid was investigated in terms of adsorption and masking at the receptor site. With phosphatidic acid, 36.1% of the bitterness-depressing effect was found to be due to adsorption, while 45.6% was due to suppression at the receptor site. In the case of 0.05 (w/v)% tannic acid, the total bitterness-masking effect was 61.0%. The contribution of the adsorption effect was about 27.5% while the residual masking effect at the receptor site was almost 33%. Further addition of tannic acid (0.15 (w/v)%), however, increased the bitterness score of quinine, which probably represents an effect of the astringency of tannic acid itself. Finally, an artificial taste sensor was used to evaluate or predict the bitterness-depressing effect. The sensor output profile was shown to reflect the depressant effect at the receptor site rather well. Therefore, the taste sensor is potentially useful for predicting the effectiveness of bitterness-depressant substances.  (+info)

Formaldehyde-induced shrinkage of rat thymocytes. (7/86)

To test the possibility that micromolar formaldehyde, a metabolite of methanol derived from aspartame, exerts cytotoxicity, its effect on rat thymocytes was examined under the in vitro condition using a flow cytometer. Incubation of thymocytes with formaldehyde at 100 micro M or more for 24 h significantly increased the populations of shrunken cells and cells with hypodiploid DNA. The peak blood concentration of methanol in human subjects administered abuse doses of aspartame has been reported to exceed 2 mg/dL (625 micro M). It would increase the population of thymocytes undergoing apoptosis if formaldehyde at 100 micro M or more appears in the blood after administration of aspartame.  (+info)

Modified DNA aptamers against sweet agent aspartame. (8/86)

We obtained a modified DNA aptamer against sweetener, aspartame, by in vitro selection method. The modified DNA was prepared from dATP, dGTP, dCTP and a modified dTTP bearing a terminal amino group at C-5 position in place of thymidine by PCR using a hyper thermophilic DNA polymerase, KOD Dash DNA polymerase. The synthetic 102-mer DNA with a 60-mer random region was used as an initial template for the PCR. The PCR-amplified modified DNA library was applied to an aspartame-agarose column, and then the bound modified DNA was eluted from the column for the affinity chromatography selection. Repeating the procedure, we selected the modified DNA aptamer against aspartame.  (+info)

A List of Foods Containing Aspartame. Health concerns raised about the safety of aspartame, including increased cancer risk, have not been validated through research. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Cancer Society acknowledge that aspartame is safe for general use within a recommended intake. The FDA sets an Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) for aspartame at 50 milligrams per kilogram, equivalent to 21 aspartame sweetened beverages for a 165 pound person.. Aspartame is safe for use by nearly all healthy individuals, including those with diabetes. The one exception is people who have phenylketonuria (PKU). People with PKU are unable to metabolize phenylalanine, a component of aspartame. A warning statement on all products containing aspartame advises against consuming it, if you have PKU.. Some not so obvious foods and products contain aspartame. For example, condiments that typically contain sugar, such as ketchup, dressings, sauces and ...
Not only has my life been changed by aspartame in ways that are apparently never going to be reversed (my eyesight and my memory) but recently I had a very hard time acquiring health insurance. The insurance underwriter actually told my insurance agent that he ran across 6,000 cases like mine (people claiming aspartame made them sick) a month. Now I do not know how many people his location underwrites in a month, whether he meant 6,000 people a year, whether he was exaggerating or even whether my agent was being honest with me. It is just one more piece of my aspartame story and one more way it has left its ugly mark on my life. Now I know this is America and I am ultimately in charge of where I end up in life, but why, when we have a system in place to protect people, does that very system seem so hell bent on writing off aspartame victims as unreliable at the possible cost of more injuries ...
While there are a lot of products that contain aspartame, it is highly unlikely that one would consume enough aspartame to exceed the ADI in a 24 hour period. Additionally, it is important that the ADI has a built in safety factor of 100 fold, so even if the ADI were exceeded, the amount of aspartame consumed would not reach dangerous levels. Further, the amount of aspartame used is miniscule and used to sweeten foods and beverages to remove calories and provide a low-calorie product. In recent research there have been no links to aspartame causing neurological problems, worsening disease states, or causing increased craving for sweet food/beverages. Humans innately crave sweet tasting foods and beverages. There have also been no scientific studies that can prove any adverse side effects. It is important to keep in mind that while these studies may have shown associations between aspartame and these side effects, it is not a cause and effect model and is untrue to say that aspartame is the cause ...
People try the sweetener aspartame when they are trying to lose weight. The reasoning is that it has no calories and can be substituted for sugar which is high calorie. Dieters would be surprised to know that research has shown that Aspartame actually increases the weight and waistlines of its users [1].. Along with weight gain there are other serious health considerations involved with Aspartame. Aspartame has been associated with cardiovascular incidents. In fact, a decade-long study of 60,000 women has confirmed that drinking diet soda sweetened with aspartame is linked with a 30 percent increase in heart attack risk and a 50 percent increase in death risk. These findings were presented at American College of Cardiology [2] Italian studies by Dr. Morand Soffriti concluded that aspartame is a multi-carcinogenic agent in rats. Further its "multi-carcinogenic effects were evident even at daily dose 20mg/kg b.w. much less than the current ADI of 50mg/kg b.w." (22, Sofritti et al)[3]. The daily ...
There are 92 documented symptoms of ASPARTAME, from coma to death. The majority of them are all neurological, because the ASPARTAME destroys the nervous system. ASPARTAME Disease is partially the cause to what is behind some of the mystery of the Dessert Storm health problems some of the soldiers are experiencing. The burning tongue and other problems discussed in over 60 cases can be directly related to the consumption of an ASPARTAME product. Several thousand pallets of diet pop were shipped to the Dessert Storm troops. (Heat can liberate the methanol from the ASPARTAME at 86 degrees F). Diet pop sat in the 120 degree F Arabian sun for weeks at a time on pallets. The service men and women drank this diet pop all day long. All of their symptoms are identical to ASPARTAME poisoning ...

Birth defects and subsequent generational stigmas. The finding of aspartame metabolites in DNA clearly has profound implications. I have described severe problems in the fetus or the infants of parents-including fathers-who consumed aspartame at the time of conception and/or during pregnancy.. Epidemiological studies will be necessary to corroborate the role of aspartame consumption in medical, neurological, metabolic, immune and neoplastic disorders involving subsequent generations.. The urgent need for action. It is clear to all who have studied the matter that the initial approval of aspartame by the FDA in l981-in the face of severe objections from its in-house scientists, consultants for the General Accounting Office, and even a Public Board of Inquiry-was an erroneous political decision. This opinion is supported by considerable clinical experience, an increasing number of credible scientific studies, and demographic evidence relating to the contributory role of aspartame sodas and other ...
One would think that with the extreme and almost omnipresent dangers of aspartame that there would be far less of the substance on the market compared to a decade or two ago. But, with fully sanctioned advertisements telling you just how great products are which contain aspartame, there seems to be no end in sight for this dangerous edible chemistry experiment. There have been, however, several dozen studies on just how viable the purely artificial sweetener actually is for the human body, mostly ignored by the general populace and still consumed just as much of the sweetener as before.. Methanol, Biproduct of Aspartame Linked to Autism, Preterm Delivery. Among these studies is a comprehensive one on Methanol, the primary alcoholic component used in the production of aspartame. A retired food scientist and Professor Emeritus of Food Science and Nutrition at the Arizona State University Dr. Woodrow Monte describes how the toxic chemical methanol and its use in the production of aspartame and ...
Have you ever heard the term aspartame? It sounds weird and it is definitely a chemical compound. But did you know that this substance is included in your favorite soft drinks and beverages? Aspartame, no matter how ridiculous it sounds, is an artificial sweetener that is added to foods and drinks to acquire distinct level of sweetness. While it is definitely one of the reasons that youve kept coming back for more of your favorite soda, your body may not like it at all because of the health woes that it may cause in the long run. Lets get to know more about Aspartame and its effects to our health.. History. Aspartame was first discovered in 1965, but it was several years later when FDA finally provided an approval of its use in carbonated drinks, beverages, and foods. NutraSweet, which was manufactured in 1965, was the very first brand of aspartame sold to the market. Today, it comes with other brand names such as Equal and Spoonful. Since then, it became the core of hot topics about its ...
This new study shows the importance of the quality of research. Most of the past studies showing no link between aspartame and cancer have been criticized for being too short in duration and too inaccurate in assessing long-term aspartame intake. This new study solves both of those issues. The fact that it also shows a positive link to cancer should come as no surprise, because a previous best-in-class research study done on animals (900 rats over their entire natural lifetimes) showed strikingly similar results back in 2006: aspartame significantly increased the risk for lymphomas and leukemia in both males and females. More worrying is the follow on mega-study, which started aspartame exposure of the rats at the fetal stage. Increased lymphoma and leukemia risks were confirmed, and this time the female rats also showed significantly increased breast (mammary) cancer rates. This raises a critical question: will future, high-quality studies uncover links to the other cancers in which aspartame ...

You say you were "advised", but as Public Health Minister with the health interests of the UK at stake, dont you think you should have researched the issue? There are front groups for the aspartame industry like the Calorie Control Council who will advise all day long that aspartame is safe with full knowledge its not.. I believe I have more concern for the health of the people of Europe than you do because I came to England not to "advise" but to document the facts on aspartame beyond any shadow of a doubt. The lives of the people are at stake. It was obvious the aspartame industry knew I was coming. I was met with "follow me" by immigration. They didnt even ask my name. Immediately one of their people went through my suitcases and confiscated every record on aspartame including books by the experts. They knew exactly what they were looking for. I was detained three and a half hours. Immigration even wanted to know how many people would be at each of my lectures.. Finally I was taken to a ...

Aspartame has never been tested on humans for safety.. Over a billion people consume aspartame in their foods and beverages across the world daily, believing it to be a safe ingredient.. Aspartame is the number one sweetener used in U.S. hospitals by doctors, nurses, visitors and patients.. Each of the three ingredients in the synthetic, chemical combination Aspartame - which is comprised of 50 percent phenylalanine, 40 percent aspartic acid, and 10 percent methanol - pose their own dangers.. The EPAs recommended limit for consumption of methanol is 7.8 milligrams per day, but a one liter bottle of an Aspartame-sweetened beverage contains over 50 mg of methanol! Heavy users of Aspartame-containing products consume over 250 mg daily of methanol - thats 30 times the EPA limit!.

After years of experience as a mother and a teacher, I truly believe that all schools should be deeply concerned about their students consumption of aspartame, an artificial sweetener unfortunately found in a multitude of products.. Aspartame is found in many brands of diet soda and other diet drinks, gum, candy, flavored fizzy water and many diabetic foods. It is even in health drinks, yogurt, gelatins, puddings, wine coolers, cereals, breath strips and mints; some medicines and chewable childrens vitamins also contain aspartame.. Most students realize that illegal drugs and smoking are bad for them, but many dont know anything about the hazards of aspartame. With all the media attention on obesity these days, students will start using even more "diet" products.. Obviously, obesity is a serious problem! However, turning to artificial sweeteners in an attempt to lose weight or prevent weight gain is not the answer. In fact, artificial sweeteners have been proven to contribute to weight gain. ...
Only after longer aspartame usage does liver damage cause blood methanol levels to measurably rise because the liver mitochondria are so damaged that the liver no longer quickly processes either methyl or ethyl (drink) alcohol. Then the acute methanol poisoning is directly measurable from lab results, as the blood methanol level elevates. This entire sequence or "toxic axis" begins with your very first dose of aspartame. Both acute and chronic poisonings from this methanol toxic axis, and other additive and synergistic aspartame poisonings, steadily accumulate in the aspartame consumer. We continue to get reports of people dying of methanol poisoning. Charles Fleming died and his wife, a Sunday School teacher, remains in a prison in Virginia. The detective on the case said, "Diane is innocent but because I was promoted I could not stop the indictment." Be warned no diabetic should ever consume wood alcohol.

Each year, Americans consume about 5,250 tons of aspartame in total. 86 percent of this aspartame (4,500 tons) is from the consumption of diet sodas. Diet soda is the largest dietary source of aspartame in the U.S. A study recently published at the beginning of December 2012 links the consumption of Aspartame to increased risk of Lymphoma and Leukemia.

From Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum. 6-15-7. Statement from Dr. Russell Blaylock, MD. Dear Betty,. My review of the first Ramazzini Study concluded that the study was one of the best designed, comprehensive and conclusive studies done to date on the multipotent carcinogenic potential of aspartame.. This second study is even more conclusive, in that it shows a dose-dependent statistically significant increase in lymphomas/ leukemia in both male and female rats exposed to aspartame. These two cancers are the fastest growing cancers in people under age 30.. Also, of major concern is their finding of statistically significant increases in breast cancer in animals exposed to aspartame. With newer studies clearly indicating that toxic exposures during fetal development can dramatically increase the cancer risk of the offspring, this study takes on a very important meaning to all pregnant women consuming aspartame products. Likewise, small children are at considerable risk of the later development of these ...

The artificial sweetener aspartame, a dipeptide with the formula Asp-Phe-me, is produced using a cloned micrcorganism [sic]. A DNA which codes for a large stable peptide comprised of the repeating amino acid sequence (Asp-Phe)n is inserted into a cloning vehicle which in turn is introduced into a suitable host microorganism. The host microorganism is cultured and the large peptide containing the repeating Asp-Phe sequence is harvested therefrom. The free carboxyl group of the large peptide is benzylated and then hydrolysed to benzyl Asp-Phe dipeptides. This dipeptide is methylated and then debenzylated to form aspartame ...
During observations of thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD, it was documented that they had a complete change in their behaviors after the aspartame had been removed from their diets. Ritalin and other behavior modification prescription drugs were no longer needed. The foods that the children were being fed that were supposed to have been better for them than sugar, were in fact slowly poisoning them on a daily basis.. It has been said aspartame can cause birth defects such as mental retardation if taken at the time of conception and during the early stage of pregnancy. There have been numerous cases relating to children who have suffered grand mal seizures amongst other neurological disturbances due to the use of Nutra Sweet. Artificial sweeteners should never be given to children!. It is not easy to convince parents that aspartame is bad for their child and may be the reason for the childs illness. Stevia is a sweet herb that helps in the metabolism of sugar and would be ideal ...
Aspartame. Aspartame is an artificial non-saccharide sweetener invented in the 1980s. It was commonly known through its popular brand names such as Spoonfuls, Sweetmate, and Equal. Aspartame is derived from amino-acids and it is metabolized and digested by the body just like food containing protein. Aspartame is about 200 times sweeter than sugar so only a tiny amount of this sweetener can satisfy your sweet cravings. Although aspartame comes very close to sugar in its taste profile, the taste still differs significantly in how it affects your receptors and how long it lasts.. Aspartame can be found in various types of products such as desserts, different kinds of snack foods, gums and candies, salad dressings, beverages, and breakfast cereals. Because of the way it breaks down, aspartame is not a good sweetener for baking and does not support a long shelf life of a product.. Aspartame is one of the most thoroughly tested food additives on the market. It is currently considered safe, although ...
An independent study done by European Ramazzini Foundation of Oncology and Environmental Sciences in Italy shows the intake of aspartame at far less than daily allowable levels is multi-carcinogenic (lymphomas and leukemias) in laboratory rats. Aspartame is marketed as Nutrasweet, Equal, and Aminosweet and commonly found in "diet" products such as diet sodas.. First Experimental Demonstration of the Multipotential Carcinogenic Effects of Aspartame Administered in the Feed to Sprague-Dawley Rats. "Our study shows that APM is a multipotential carcinogenic compound whose carcinogenic effects are evident even at a daily dose of 20 mg/kg bw, much less than the current ADI for humans in Europe (40 mg/kg bw) and in the United States (50 mg/kg bw).. The results of carcinogenicity bioassays in rodents are consistent predictors of human cancer risks (Huff 1999; Rall 1995; Tomatis et al. 1989). The results of our study therefore call for an urgent reexamination of the present guidelines on the use and ...
IFIC Statement. Todays opinion by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has once again shown the strong evidence available to support aspartames safe use in foods and beverages. In addition to being reaffirmed as safe on numerous occasions by regulatory, health, and scientific authorities around the world, low-calorie sweeteners such as aspartame, when consumed in the context of a healthful diet and regular physical activity, can also be an effective weight management tool.. The International Food Information Council (IFIC) is committed to communicating science-based information and has communicated about the safety of aspartame for more than 25 years. The overwhelming consensus among qualified experts, based on decades of research, is that aspartame is a safe low-calorie sweetener for the general population and does not cause adverse health effects.. According to David Schmidt, President & CEO of IFIC, "This latest EFSA review is one of a long string of studies, reviews, and ...
By Michael Biamonte CCN.. In the keynote address by the EPA, it was announced that in the United States in 2001 there is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus. It was difficult to determine exactly what toxin was causing this to be rampant.. Now it appears that it is Aspartame. Marketed as Nutra Sweet, Equal, and Spoonful. When the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants. The methanol toxicity mimics, among other conditions, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus.. Many people are being diagnosed in error. Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, Methanol toxicity is!. Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. The victim usually does not know that the Aspartame is the culprit. He or she continues its ...
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: ...
Cordell E Logan. Aspartame was discovered by accident in 1965 when James Schlatter, a chemist for G.D. Searle Co., was testing a drug for ulcers. It was approved for dry goods in 1981 and for carbonated beverages in 1983. However, in 1974 it was originally approved for dry goods, but neuroscience researcher Dr. John W. Olney put a hold on it. In 1985, Monsanto purchased G.D. Searle and made Searle Pharmaceuticals and NutraSweet Company separate subsidiaries.. The FDA reported that over 75% of adverse reactions to food additives are from Aspartame.. Aspartame is made up of aspartic acid (40%), phenylalanine (50%), and methanol (10%). Aspartic acid and glutamate are neurotransmitters. Too much of either one can kill certain brain neurons by allowing too much calcium to enter cells, which leads to an influx of free radicals that kill the cells. Excess of these amino acids can cross the "blood brain barrier" (BBB), especially in children. Problems include MS, ALS, memory loss, hormone imbalances, ...
Thanks Will! Oh yes, Rummy was very much involved.. To NovemberIsComing,. I thank you for your contribution. I do like to keep all perspectives in mind when I write, and I did research the claims by both the aspartame critics and those who promote/advocate for it. Your comment actually mirrors much of what I saw on the sites in support of aspartame. Almost to the letter.. Heres what I will agree with. Aspartame HAS been tested repeatedly over the years. Without a doubt. The question that arises as I stated within this article is the veracity of those tests. Seems they created more questions than answers, and the public record reflects at the minimum a cause for concern with how these tests were carried out. If the testing process has repeatedly come into question, I think it should make any rationally minded person hesitate to accept the company line that safety has been "overwhelmingly affirmed".. Now, with regard to Monsanto, which by the way I mention ONCE at the very bottom of my post in an ...
What? That cant be right, you are likely thinking. It is.The methanol in aspartame affects the dopamine system of the brain causing addiction. Methanol, or wood alcohol, is classified as a severe metabolic poison.Aspartame is a dipeptide molecule produced by joining phenylalanine and aspartic acid. Aspartame itself does not occur…
Of course other foods (from diet yoghurts to low calorie jams) contain aspartame but diet drinks have the lions share and result in 80 per cent of consumption.. Chris Woollams, former Oxford University Biochemist and founder of CANCERactive, "When the researchers did their first study, vested interests were happy to jump on the findings. This backfired. The researchers took all the comments onboard and repeated the research and got worse risk figures for aspartame. Needless to say, no action will be taken by people responsible for our health. In a meta-analysis produced in 2017, it was found that cans of fizzy soft drinks containing aspartame were associated with increased BMI and increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and strokes.". ...
A. A brain tumor in adults can take many years or decades to become large and easily detectable. Aspartame couldnt have been the original cause of these brain tumors because it wasnt on the market long enough. However, it is known that certain less deadly brain tumors can transform into more deadly and larger forms in a shorter period of time. If aspartame was a brain tumor agent, that is what we would see first. Olney showed that in the most susceptible population group, there has been an enormous increase in these deadly types of brain tumors since within a few years after aspartame appeared on the market. Of course, there has been a corresponding decrease in the less deadly types of brain tumors during that time. That is why the *overall* brain tumor rate looks somewhat stable. So, whenever some government official talks about *overall* brain tumor rates, they clearly didnt read the Olney study ...
Dr. Bill Deagle says: Most people when asked how Aspartame is made do not have the first step of understanding. While an E.R. doctor and primary care physician in Augusta, GA in 1987 and 1988, I was told a number of interesting facts about the adjacent Aspartame factory. Bacteria with genes inserted generate a sludge which is centrifuged to remove the aspartame and many hundreds of contaminant organic and amino acids are present. We were told not to report illness or workers compensation issues for fear of being fired by the hospital, now the Augusta Regional Medical Center. Many of their employees presented with psychiatric, neuropathy conditions, chronic fatigue and organic cases of loss of cognitive function. This powder from the dried sludge was then transported for packaging in factories elsewhere in the US, before sale as Equal and now the myriad of names of this neurotoxin. Bill Deagle, M.D. ...

ALSO READ: 6 tricks to help you keep your weight in check. Aspartame is known to break down into phenylalanine, aspartic acid, and methanol during digestion in the body. The researchers attribute harmful impacts of aspartame to methanol which they say, induces oxidative stress by releasing free radicals. "In rats, the metabolism of methanol is fast, which is why they were made folate deficient to mimic the slow metabolism of methanol found in humans," Ashok explained.. "As aspartame consumption is on the rise among common people, it is essential to create awareness regarding its usage," researchers said while suggesting more studies to evaluate the effect of aspartame in humans..

MARY: Well, it tasted funny to me. I was used to saccharin. I used the artificial sweetener, saccharin which has been around for a hundred years and no deaths reported ... only six complaints about saccharin had been reported to the FDA as of a couple of years ago, versus thousands and tens of thousands of complaints reported to the FDA about Aspartame. In fact, its the most complained about additive in history. Aspartame has the most complaints on record. And, yet, the FDA refuses to do anything. I work with pilots. I have established a pilots hotline in regard to this because an F-16 pilot asked me to do so when we were both in Washington testifying at the Senate Hearings. Working with pilots is an amazing thing. They lose their jobs. They lose, in some cases: their marriages, their homes, their families ... everything. And, in some cases ... their lives.

January 16, 2015. The Center for Science in the Public Interest is asking Grammy-award-winning singer Taylor Swift to drop her endorsement of Diet Coke, which contains aspartame, the artificial sweetener that has caused cancer in animals. In an open letter to Swift, the food safety watchdog group told the singer that endorsing Diet Coke is better than endorsing full-calorie Coke, which promotes diabetes, heart disease, and obesity, but that diet sodas sweetened with aspartame pose their own risks.. "Your endorsement carries great weight with your millions of young fans," wrote CSPI executive director Michael F. Jacobson, who praised Swifts considerable philanthropy, including her support of several prominent cancer-related charities. "To the extent that your endorsement encourages them to begin drinking Diet Coke, or to drink more, your endorsement is likely increasing your fans risk of cancer. Even if the increase in risk is small, we question whether you would want to lend your name, image, ...

By Ralph Walton, MD. Although psychiatry is far from an exact science, over the past half century there has been an explosive growth in our understanding of the human brain and consequently in our ability to diagnose and treat mental disorders. We have also become much more sophisticated about the impact of a variety of toxins on psychological processes.. I am convinced that one such toxin is aspartame.. Two years after aspartame was introduced onto the market I first became aware of the negative impact of this artificial sweetener on the central nervous system. I had been treating a then 54 year old woman with imipramine, a tricyclic antidepressant, because of recurrent major depressive episodes. Previous psychoanalytically based therapy had proven ineffective, but she responded dramatically to 150mg of imipramine per day. She had done well for 11 years on this medication, but was then suddenly hospitalized with a grand-mal seizure and subsequent manic episode.. One could postulate that she was ...
Aspartame, alais sweetener or proteoglycan, with the chemical name of Aspartyl phenylalanine methyl ester, is adipeptide being a combination of L-aspartic acid and L-phenylalanine. It can be absorbed by human body completely and is harmless and quite safe to use. It tastes pure, cool and refreshing, similar to sucrose however is 200 times as sweet with only l/200 of its energy so eating it constantly won t cause any change in blood sugar levels nor cause tooth decay, highblood pressure or coronary disease. It is defined as sweetener of A (l) level by the Word HealthOrganization (WHO) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). It is ratified for use in more than 130 countries and regions throughout the world. It is widely added to, and mixed in with all kinds of foods, non-staple foods, and all sorts of soft drinks with the number reaching as many as 4,000 Aspartame (APM) is an artificial, non-saccharide sweetener used as a sugar substitute in some foods and beverages.

Aspartame was discovered in 1965 by a chemist working for the American company Searle and an initial marketing authorisation (MA) was granted in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (US-FDA) in 1974. This MA was suspended a few months later following an appeal against the authorisation on the grounds that the toxic and carcinogenic effects on the brain of this compound and its metabolites had not been properly evaluated during the experimental studies. Following a reassessment of the studies on experimental animals and an examination of new data (including a study of carcinogenicity in the rat), the US-FDA granted this product a new MA in 1981 (US-FDA, FR 1981) for use in solid food. This authorisation was extended to soft drinks in 1983 (US-FDA, FR 1983) and for its use as a general sweetener in 1996. The safety of aspartame has been assessed and recognised by a number of other national and international organisations including the FAO/WHO Committee of Experts on Food Additives ...

Mike: Wasnt there some research that came out recently that supports all this by establishing a correlation between leukemia and aspartame?. Dr. Blaylock: Yes. This Italian study was very well done. It was a lifetime study, which is very important with these toxins. They fed animals aspartame throughout their lives and let them die a natural death. They found a dramatic and statistically significant increase in the related cancers of lymphoma and leukemia, along with several histological types of lymphomas, which is of interest because H.J. Roberts had written an article saying that there was a significant increase in the primary lymphoma of the brain.. When you look it up in the neurosurgical literature, there is a rather significant rise in the incidents of what used to be a rare tumor. Were seeing a lot more of the primary lymphoma of the brain, which is a little different than lymphomas you see elsewhere. When you look back at the original studies done by the G.D. Searle company, they ...
Dr. Gross expressed his disdain at the way teratology experiments were conducted. These are critical tests with any new drug because it determines possible dangers to unborn children when their mothers are exposed to the product during pregnancy. He found that technicians responsible for the tests had no formal training in teratology or toxicology. In fact, they were given some books by the company and trained themselves for 3 months. Of most concern was the way the carcinogenicity tests were conducted. These are tests to see if the product could cause cancer. According to the law, any product intended as a food product cannot have demonstrated cancer-causing ability at a dose 100X that commonly consumed. Even though the tests were poorly conducted they did demonstrate that aspartame was associated with a dramatic, dose-dependent, increase in a variety of brain tumors-mainly astrocytomas-the type commonly seen in humans. This means that the higher the dose of aspartame the more tumors that were ...

US is Incapable of Removing Aspartame from Market, Consumer Protection shifts to International Focus A horrifying conclusion, but these are the facts: without a massive overhaul at the FDA resulting from a very large hue and cry from the American public, nothing will ever get done in terms of the FDA removing this neurotoxic carcinogen from the market. There is considerable hope, however, in efforts going on right now in Sacramento, California to require a carcinogen label on aspartame containing products, as well as international efforts to fight back against the misleading corporate propaganda that assures hundreds of millions that aspartame is somehow safe to consume. Talk about Fake News! These Ajinomoto guys in Japan win the Gold Prize for getting away with audaciously lying to consumers in every nation.

While I am not a seasoned expert on migraines, I recently have discovered that 90% of migraines can be attributed to chemicals, and some to artificial sweeteners - aspartame, phenylalanine, sorbitol, manitol, etc. Do you drink diet drinks or Crystal Light? Eat light yogurt? Chew gum or mints such as Dentyne/Trident, Juicyfruit, Breath Savers? These artificial sweeteners are in these product, in addition to 6000+ food items now. If you want to determine if these sweeteners are either causing your symptoms or making them worse, cut back and then eliminate them from your diet, completely. While youre at it, reduce and then eliminate caffeine. I used to have headaches since I was 16 and Im 58 now, recently I was strongly suggested to eliminate caffeine and aspartame/phenylalanine from my diet completely (for another dx, menieres disease). Once I went off all these chemicals, my headaches went away completely. I simply no longer have them. I only drink water now, 3 quarts. Used to be Id wake up ...
Its possible that although they have no caloric value, artificial sweeteners could affect blood sugar or insulin in ways that cause the body to store fat. This is the theory being tested in the study described in the previous entry in which mice consuming aspartame in amounts comparable to an average-sized woman drinking 20 oz of aspartame-sweetened soda per day had higher fasting glucose levels than mice on the same diet minus the aspartame. The effect could be chemical, but seems more likely to be an effect of the sweet taste-i.e. the perception of sweetness might affect the hormones that govern appetite and metabolic rate. Evidence for this is still extremely scant. Not only is it unclear whether or not the effect is reliable, biologically significant, or occurs in humans; its also unclear if its specific to aspartame or an effect of all artificial sweeteners, if it scales such that a small amount of aspartame causes a smaller increase in fasting glucose or only occurs at a certain ...
Sudden Cardiac Death Aspartame MSG Heart disease. Sudden Cardiac Death and Food Excitotoxin Additives by Russell L. Blaylock, MD. 2009. http://web.mac.com. Over 460,000 people per year are now dying of a disorder called of sudden cardiac death according to CDC statistics. This is a condition striking otherwise healthy people, who have experienced no obvious symptoms of heart disease prior to their deaths. An alarming number of these deaths are occurring in young athletes, both in high schools, colleges, as well as among professional athletes.. While cardiologists have found coronary disease and suspect previous scars from silent heart attacks in a number of these individuals, one mechanism is getting no attention at all, and that is excitotoxic damage caused by food additives and the artificial sweetener aspartame. This is despite growing evidence that the excitotoxic mechanism plays a major role in cardiac disease.. Previously, it was thought that excitotoxin food additives, such as monosodium ...
Avoid the artificial sweetener aspartame, often used to sweeten diet sodas and other "low calorie" and "sugar free" foods… This chemical basically exhausts the enzymes that break it down in our bodies. But these are the same enzymes the brain needs to make serotonin.. Too much aspartame and your serotonin levels drop.. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter we need to boost our moods. It also controls smooth muscle contraction, proper sleep, body temperature, and more. And guess what - depression (from low serotonin) and exhaustion factor heavily into low libido.. Thats why certain anti-depressants called selective-serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) lower libido. Some also cause ED.. Your hormones also play a crucial role, so dont use any so-called hormone disruptors.. The most common hormone disruptor in foods that weve discussed is soy. Not only can it lead to men growing breasts when consumed in large amounts, but even moderate soy consumption introduces plant estrogen into your system. ...
Tom Philpott got much more of a reaction to his February 10, 2011, aspartame article than he expected. He reports, I guess in the back of my mind, I was thinking, people still drink that stuff?. Well, they do-by the bucketful. Overall, U.S. soda consumption is declining slowly, but Americans still drink more soda than anyone else on the planet, by a wide margin. According to one reckoning, the average American drinks 736 eight-ounce servings each year.. Adam Ozimek of the Modeled Behavior blog quickly mounted a vigorous defense of aspartame, the artificial sweetener of choice for the soda industry, claiming, the unnecessary stress caused by worrying about the aspartame in your diet soda is far more dangerous for you than the aspartame in your soda.. Ozimek also compared warnings about aspartames danger to 9/11 conspiracy theories, claiming the FDA adequately followed its food additive approval process in approving aspartame.. Philpott goes on to point out recent studies that shed new ...

Aspartame What does aspartame do to your body? Are there any aspartame side effects for type 2 diabetics? The aspartame danger is generally overstated, but thats not to say its good for you. Aspartame, which is marketed as NutraSweet, and other excitotoxins such as MSG alter the chemistry of the connections between nerves that they are stimulated by low levels of sensation that ordinarily would be ignored. Ironically, this aggravates your appetite. Imbalances in the hormone ghrelin, which are very common in type 2s, also change the chemistry of nerve connections so that you are very sensitive to pain until you eat something. And if you have type 2 diabetes, this can make keeping your blood sugar levels in control almost impossible.. Saccharin and Stevia are not excitotoxins, and they do not increase your appetite. Of the two, Stevia, sold in North America and Australia under the trade name Truvia, has the added benefit of not raising insulin levels. As you may know, raising insulin levels ...
Artificial sweeteners may be found in everything from breath mints and chewing gums to jams, jellies, and juices, and even nutritional bars and yogurts. Is one healthier than another?.

Indeed, adding sugar to coffee may negate many of coffees positive effects on mood, and adding the artificial sweetener aspartame (found in Equal and NutraSweet) or saccharine (in Sweet n Low) was associated with an increased risk of depression.. The controversy surrounding aspartames neurological effects began in the 1980s when subjects with a history of depression seemed to experience such severe reactions to the sweetener that a study was halted prematurely. More recently, aspartames neurobehavioral effects were investigated in a population free from mental illness. Healthy individuals were split into ...

For those of you with a sweet tooth, remember: Not all sweeteners are alike. Refined white sugar and corn syrup are stripped of nutrients, have a high glycemic index and contribute to obesity and diabetes. The artificial sweetener aspartame lacks nutrients and has been shown to cause problems such as dizziness and headaches. Many agave syrups contain 70-80 percent fructose - more than whats found in high-fructose corn syrup. But dont give up on sweets yet. There are two star sweeteners that impart flavor and nutritional benefits: blackstrap molasses and grade B pure maple syrup. In small amounts, these sweeteners actually offer some goodness.. ...
1. Canola oil - Canola is the devil of all food stuff. Its the margarine of yesteryear. Its Canadas #1 export, and Canadians rarely eat it themselves. How ironic. Canola oil coagulates in your blood and digestive tract, and it makes no difference if its organic, expeller pressed or cold-pressed. It leads to weight gain, memory loss, and eventually dementia. That means you get fat, stupid and cant remember who your relatives are.. #2. Artificial sweeteners - Aspartame and sucralose - These lab-made concoctions are hundreds of times sweeter than sugar, tricking your body into thinking youre eating tons of sugar. The result is you crave more sugar, and when you do eat the real thing, your body clings to it like a baby to candy. If youre trying to lose weight, the last thing you need is to be hungry all the time. Lose the artificial sweeteners and lose the weight.. #3.

If Monsanto truly had nothing to fear with either of these artificial chemical sweeteners, they would have funded rigorous independent testing for safety.

Europe often has more stringent rules on the safety and labeling of certain foods compared to the FDA and USDA regulations in the US. For example, the European Union requires a warning label on food products with artificial food dyes. Europe has also banned: carrageenan from infant formula, injecting hormones into farm animals, using anabolic sex steroids on farm animals to promote growth, the use of ractopamine in animal feed, injecting phosphate into meat, and alkylphenol use. Europe also has a lower allowable pus cell concentration limit for milk than the US, and a lower maximum acceptable daily intake level of the artificial sweetener aspartame. Stricter rules on the food industry may explain why in Europe, Salmonella contamination of poultry is as low as 2%, compared to a poultry contamination rate in the U.S. higher than 14%. The European food industrys attempt to control fry times to decrease acrylamide levels has not, however, been effective. Also, U.S. grown rice may have lower arsenic ...
You may have seen or heard the word before - ASPARTAME. An artificial sweetener, its one of the two most commonly used food additives in the products you buy from the grocery store and eat in restaurants. (The other is MSG).
The other big concern surrounding diet soda and health problems is a very overblown correlation with being carcinogenic. This correlation stems from a few studies done on rodents that were fed aspartame and developed types of cancer. While the proof was there, the amount of sweetener given to the rodents was way more than any human can consume in one day. It is also important to mention that studies done on mice and rats do not always translate to human studies which is exactly the case with sweeteners as no evidence has ever been shown to link them to cancer in people. The only group of people that should worry about aspartame causing cancer are those who suffer from phenylketonuria (PKU), a rare genetic disorder that does not allow the body to process the amino acid phenylalanine (aspartame is made of this amino acid). This 0.01% of the population should avoid aspartame but the other 99.99% of the world should not fear this or any other artificial sweetener in moderate doses. Even in extreme ...

The American Dietetic Association has challenged three current internet rumors concerning Aspartame. According to its Evidence Analysis Library, the sweetener does not cause "rebound hunger." Much evidence shows that it has no effect on appetite or food intake. Therefore, it would not lead to weight gain. When used in the reduced calorie diet, it increases weight loss, due to its lack of calories. There have been no ill effects on health overall as a sweetener, as various myths have reported. Some claims that explain the chemistry behind the catabolic phases of Aspartame are incorrect. The ADA has concluded that in the 40 plus years the product has been on the market, "Aspartame consumption is not associated with adverse effects in the general population ...
The concern: A report in the 1990s suggested that the increase in number of people with brain tumours may be associated with the introduction and use of artificial sweetener in the United States.. The evidence: An analysis of the US National Cancer Institute statistics showed that the incidence of cancers began to rise eight years before the approval of aspartame and mainly among people aged 70 and older, a group not exposed to the highest doses of aspartame.. Subsequently, the National Cancer Institute examined data from the Diet and Health Study of more than half a million retirees and found that increasing consumption of aspartame-containing beverages was not associated with the development of cancer.. Studies of laboratory rats in 2005 found that rats given high doses of aspartame were more likely to develop lymphoma and leukaemia. However, the doses given to the rats in this study were the equivalent of between 8 and 2,083 cans of diet soft drink daily.. A survey conducted by the Food ...

Use Stevia as your sweetener. Its naturally-derived. You can Youtube Dr. Russell Blaylocks lecture on Aspartame. I read his book, which recommends
A worldwide epidemic is raging. The cause is a poisonous chemical sweetener, aspartame (marketed as NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful), the most controversial food additive ever approved. In reality it is a drug which interacts with other drugs and changes brain chemistry.
Then, after I got back home, I was telling another friend about what had happened, and he perked up his ears when I mentioned the Gatorade. He asked me specifically whether it was regular Gatorade, or sugar-free, and I told him it was sugar-free, since, with my diet, Im off sugar. (Just to get the full irony of the situation, I would normally have a bottle of unsweetened iced tea, but it was late in the afternoon, and I didnt want the caffeine.) Then he pointed me to this web site, which describes the link between aspartame and something called Sudden Cardiac Death. The article cites numerous cases of otherwise very-healthy individuals dying suddenly while engaged in strenuous athletic activity, during which they consume aspartame. And the description fits virtually exactly what happened to me. To quote the article: "the shock from strenuous athletics in combination with aspartame consumption. . . leads to activation of shock mechanisms. . . the cardiac conduction system that generates the ...

When consumed in excess, sucralose and aspartame are linked to weight gain, metabolic syndrome, anxiety and headaches. Stick to natural no-sugar options, like stevia.
One account of a case of extremely high phenylalanine levels caused by aspartame was recently published the "Wednesday Journal" in an article titled "An Aspartame Nightmare." John Cook began drinking six to eight diet drinks every day. His symptoms started out as memory loss and frequent headaches. He began to crave more aspartame-sweetened drinks. His condition deteriorated so much that he experienced wide mood swings and violent rages. Even though he did not suffer from PKU, a blood test revealed a phenylalanine level of 80 mg/dl. He also showed abnormal brain function and brain damage. After he kicked his aspartame habit, his symptoms improved dramatically.. As Blaylock points out in his book, early studies measuring phenylalanine buildup in the brain were flawed. Investigators who measured specific brain regions and not the average throughout the brain notice significant rises in phenylalanine levels. Specifically the hypothalamus, medulla oblongata, and corpus striatum areas of the brain ...

Aspartame is metabolically degrade in your body into phenylalanine and aspartate, two of the twenty most common amino acids that appear n nature. Although your body is no stranger to aspartate, a daily dietary infusion of aspartate can be extremely problematic. Apartate belongs to a special class of compounds that able to cross the blood-brain barrier , meaning that once it s in your blood it can enter your brain. In your brain, aspatrate functions as a natural neurotransmitter and an excess of aspartate from dietary aspartame will over-stimulate neurons resulting in either the desensitization or death of large numbers of neurons. These effects are observed in test animals given extreamly small regular doses of aspartame (the sort of dose you would get from a daily diet cola) and are particularity problematic for the developing brains of children or infants. Additionally, aspartame can be converted partially to formaldehyde, a potent carcinogen, by the body s metabolic enzymes. And that s why I ...

Aspartame ... Sweet but Poison - A Must Read. (also published here). In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick. She had stomach spasms and she was having a hard time getting around. Walking was a major chore. It took everything she had just to get out of bed; she was in so much pain. By March 2002, she had undergone several tissue and muscle biopsies and was on 24 various prescription medications. The doctors could not determine what was wrong with her. She was in so much pain, and so sick...she just knew she was dying. She put her house, bank accounts, life insurance, etc., in her oldest daughters name, and made sure that her younger children were to be taken care of. She also wanted her last hooray, so she planned a trip to FL (basically in a wheelchair) for March 22nd.. On March 19th I called her to ask how her most recent tests went, and she said they didnt find anything on the test, but they believe she had MS.

... is a sugar substitute, a type of sugar alcohol used primarily for its sugar-like physical properties. It has little to no impact on blood sugar levels, and does not stimulate the release of insulin.[1] It also does not promote tooth decay, i.e. is tooth-friendly. Its energy value is 2 kcal/g, half that of sugars.[2] However, like most sugar alcohols, it carries a risk of gastric distress, including flatulence and diarrhea, when consumed in large quantities (above about 20-30 g per day).[1] Isomalt may prove upsetting to the intestinal tract because it is incompletely absorbed in the small intestine, and when polyols pass into the large intestine, they can cause osmotically induced diarrhea[3] and stimulate the gut flora, causing flatulence.[1] As with other dietary fibers, regular consumption of isomalt can lead to desensitisation, decreasing the risk of intestinal upset.[1] Isomalt can be blended with high-intensity sweeteners such as sucralose, giving a mixture that has the same ...
