Aspartame Toxicity is Misdiagnosed

Frequently, aspartame toxicity is misdiagnosed as a specific disease. This has yet to be reported in the scientific literature, yet it has been reported countless times to independent organizations and scientists (Mission Possible 1994, Stoddard 1995).  In other cases, it has been reported that chronic aspartame ingestion has triggered or worsened certain chronic illnesses.  Nearly 100% of the time, the patient and physician assume that these worsening conditions are simply a normal progression of the illness.  Sometimes that may be the case, but many times it is chronic aspartame poisoning. According to researchers and physicians studying the adverse effects of aspartame, the following list contains a selection of chronic illnesses which may be caused or worsened by the chronic, long-term ingestion of aspartame. (Mission Possible 1994, Stoddard

1995)*:

 

Brain tumors               Multiple sclerosis

Epilepsy                   Chronic fatigue syndrome

Parkinson’s Disease        Alzheimer’s

Mental retardation         Lymphoma

Birth defects              Fibromyalgia

Diabetes                   Arthritis (including Rheumatoid)
