Marilyn Vine’s Aspartame Truth page has been in place for several years now and still this terrible ingredient is being foisted on the unsuspecting public. Some of you are aware of what is being said about this artificial sweetener but others still blithely drink diet sodas!.
Two artificial sweeteners linked with diabetes
NaturalNews on 14th May 2013 advise
”One of the world's most popular non-caloric sweeteners has recently been exposed as a complete fraud. A new study published in the journal Diabetes Care reveals that Splenda (sucralose), which is commonly marketed to diabetics as a safe, non-nutritive sweetener (NNS), actually elicits a diabetes-promoting effect in people who consume it.”
“Got milk? A better question would be: Got seizures, migraine headaches, brain tumors or depression? If the dairy industry has its way, a major cause of these disorders in the form of aspartame could soon be a common ingredient in the milk supply. Bear in mind this is the chemical that has been linked with a laundry list of health issues, many of which are neurological. In light of the proposed new FDA rule that would allow artificial sweeteners like aspartame to be covertly included in dairy products, we have to consider: Is this really a chemical we want hidden within a popular food staple?”

Milk sweetened with Aspartame Deemed safe for your children!
Marilyn Vine finds this article from NaturalNews dated 6 March 2013 a most frightening article particularly as she is reading that not only do they want to add this dangerous ingredient to milk BUT THAT IT WON’T BE SHOWN ON THE LABEL. So you won’t even know that it is there. Once again I urge people to contact the Food and Drug Administration in America and voice their concerns with regards to this. Also write to International Dairy Foods Association and tell them that you will boycott ALL THEIR PRODUCTS and will pass this information on to as many people as possible! You know – the bottom line counts! The article goes on to say:
“(NaturalNews) As of February 20, 2013, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reported that the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) have filed a petition calling for an amendment to change the standard of identity for milk and 17 other dairy products. In hopes of adding "safe and suitable" sweeteners as optional ingredients, the IDFA and NMPF are calling on the FDA to amend the current rules and allow the use of aspartame in milk.”
One of the most dangerous food additives on the market today!

Dangers of Aspartame
On 12 November 2012 InfoWars published an article on the dangers of aspartame. With so much information known and in circulation with regards to aspartame truth you would think that there would be enough pressure on the authorities to have it removed. Some very powerful people behind the use of this ingredient! Dangers
Associated with increased risk of blood cancers
Now we have Dr Mercola on 7 November 2012 that a long-term study has found a clear association between aspartame consumption and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and leukemia in men. Cancer association

Neotame Code Number E961
Once again we hear from Dr Mercola in an article dated 28 March 2012 the dangers of artificial sweeteners like aspartame and neotame.
I see in this article that Dr Mercola dispels the myth that neotame is being used in organic foods and that it goes unlabelled on our products. It is good to know that this is not happening. However, he also goes on to talk about aspartame and neotame being a dieter’s worse enemy. Personally I shudder every time I see a display of Zero in my local supermarket or people blithely loading it into their shopping trolleys. This is one of the reasons I have pages such as Aspartame Truth.
Dr Mercola says:
”One of the most effective marketing and PR tactics for artificial sweeteners has been the claim that they help in the battle against obesity. Unfortunately, they don't. In fact, the research and the epidemiologic data suggest the opposite is true, and that artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and neotame tend to lead to weight gain.
As I've often said, there's more to weight gain or weight loss than mere calorie intake.
One reason for aspartame and neotame's potential to cause weight gain is because phenylalanine and aspartic acid – the two amino acids that make up 90 percent of aspartame and are also present in neotame -- are known to rapidly stimulate the release of insulin and leptin; two hormones that are intricately involved with satiety and fat storage. Insulin and leptin are also the primary hormones that regulate your metabolism. So although you're not ingesting calories in the form of sugar, aspartame and neotame can still raise your insulin and leptin levels. Elevated insulin and leptin levels, in turn, are two of the driving forces behind obesity, diabetes, and a number of our current chronic disease epidemics.”
Please read the entire article to learn more about aspartame truth and neotame truth. Also take a close look at the people involved in the corporate side and look at what government department positions they held or hold! Neotame hiding in your food
On 14 March 2012 NaturalNews brings more information on aspartame truth and also includes information from an interview with Dr Russell Blaylock. An excerpt:
“Dr. Blaylock goes on to add that what makes aspartame so dangerous is that it contains three neurotoxins: methanol, phenylalanine and aspartic acid. Methanol is a powerful neurotoxin whose exposure is carefully allowed by the EPA in minute levels in food and environmental exposure. Nutrasweet, however, provides levels that are seven times the amount the EPA will allow anyone to use. It's been known to produce blindness and cellular destruction in the brain and spinal cord, particularly the optic nerves.
Aspartic acid, on the other hand, produces cellular excitation. It is an excitotoxin that causes cell death in the brain and significantly affects neural developments in infants, resulting in behavioral changes and even hyperactivity in children. Phenylalanine, like aspartic acid, can also alter brain development during fetal formation and create a lowering of the seizure threshold.
Phenylalanine and aspartic acid are both well-recognized neurotoxins and according to Dr. Blaylock, three neurotoxins in one mix are just unbelievable.”
Aspartame Truth page urges you to read on so that the choices you make are informed choices. Neurotoxins
Aspartame and Sucralose in Chewing Gums
Prevent Disease has issued a report dated 11 January 2012 advising the names of the different brands of chewing gums that contain aspartame and sucralose. They go on to advise:
”When heated to 86 degrees Fahrenheit (human mouth = 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit) -- aspartame releases free methanol that breaks down into formic acid and formaldehyde in the body.”
” Aspartame in gum is absorbed by the buccal mucosa of the mouth, gums, and the tongue. According to research, because aspartame is absorbed this way, it makes aspartame a far worse poisoning than if given or injected intravenously. The aspartame goes directly into the brain by passing the spinal cord and the blood-brain barrier when it is absorbed in the mouth. The smallest amount of aspartame (like what is contained in a piece of gum) is very dangerous and damaging to the health of the body.”
Aspartame Truth advises that they are going to rename this product as AminoSweet – so please don’t be fooled. Read the full article to learn about both aspartame and sucralose. AminoSweet
What is behind the scenario unfolding in March 2012?
What is the aspartame truth and what is the ulterior motive behind what I am seeing happening here in Australia in March 2012?
I believe there is more going on than meets the eye and to the uninformed they would not think anything of it. First, they are finally lambasting sugar and the harm that it does and there seems to be a big push in this regard. Secondly, I am watching advertisements on TV by McDonalds where a young man tells you that he just sold you a coke but is it a coke and then the audience all pull an insert out from inside the outer and loh and behold they are drinking Zero!!!
If I was a McDonald user or a coke drinker and I found out that I had been DUPED like this I would be furious! First I don’t patronize McDonalds and secondly I don‘t drink coke! You only have to read the information contained on this page to learn about aspartame truth, which is the sweetener used, can cause! Of course today it may not even be shown as aspartame but could be called neotame or even AminoSweet as shown above BUT WHATEVER IT IS CALLED it is a dangerous substance to ingest.
Then last night (3 March 2012) I see SubWay pushing Zero!
For a campaign against sugar to be raging and two high profile fast food outlets pushing Zero – well people there is more to this than meets the eye and perhaps instead of just mindlessly going along with what they are offering you need to be asking questions to protect your health!
What do you know about the aspartame truth with regard to its approval?
GD Searle was the company that produced Aspartame. It took 16 years for GD Searle to gain approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the use of this artificial sweetener.
What was the turning point that convinced the FDA to give its approval?
Aspartame truth: It took the influence of a very powerful politician to enable this to happen – Donald Rumsfeld! For the readers who are into “health” this name will be a familiar one.
Before Donald Rumsfeld turned to politics he was a leader in the very company that produced the aspartame, i.e. GD Searle! When he turned to politics and was in a position of power he appointed a new FDA Commissioner, who gave approval for the use of this artificial sweetener.
Prior to this a former senior FDA toxicologist, the late Dr M Adrian Gross, stated before Congress:
”Beyond a shadow of a doubt, aspartame triggers brain tumours” and ”therefore, by allowing aspartame to be placed on the market the FDA has violated the Delaney Amendment, which forbids putting anything in food that is known to cause cancer ….”
The FDA has received more complaints with regards to aspartame than any other product and it is believed that it accounts for as much as 75% of the complaints received. When the FDA had received 10,000 consumer complaints they compiled a list of 92 SYMPTOMS LINKED TO ASPARTAME – INCLUDING DEATH! These are just a few of the symptoms:
It has also been linked to obesity. Stop and think of the number of people you see eating diet foods or drinking diet sodas – all sweetened with aspartame!
SO WHY IS IT STILL ON THE MARKET?
Aspartame Truth page brings information on a personal 2 ½ year experiment on the effects of aspartame was conducted by Victoria Innes-Brown. List to the YouTube and hear what she has to say
Marilyn Vine is also pleased to be able to allow you to view the YouTubes below on Aspartame truth. This YouTube is probably one of the most important YouTubes that you could ever watch in relation to protecting yourself and your family’s health.
I think I paid about US$79 many years ago to have the privilege of viewing this Video. See below for the YouTube.

Information on Neotame
Concerned about neotame? Here's the latest on this artificial chemical sweetener that's replacing aspartame in many foods Latest artificial sweetener
Replacement artificial sweetener for aspartame
Dr Mercola brings us information on the latest artificial sweetener, Neotame, to hit the news. Marilyn has also read articles from NaturalNews advising that the owners of Neotame have gained approval by health regulators not to have to include the name Neotame on the label of the foods they are producing. Why do they want to conceal its inclusion? Read what Dr Mercola has to say and draw your own conclusions. Neotame
Did you know genetically modified bacteria is used to create Aspartame
Aspartame Truth page brings you information that has been known since 1999 that Monsanto have been using genetically modified bacteria to make Aspartame. One could write to the FDA and ask them why they stopped documenting reports on products containing aspartame back in 1992? I wonder what sort of explanation they would give you! Read the article dated 5 January 2011. GM Bacteria used to create sweetener
Aspartame substitute - Neotame
I have had the following document for many years (can’t find an original date) but from memory it would be around the 2000 mark. The dangers that are being outlined in this document when knowledge of Neotame was first obtained are the same today (January 2011). In fact probably more information is now known about the harm of Aspartame and Neotame than this original document.
On 3 January 2011 I received information pertaining to the Food and Drug Administration of America (FDA) giving permission to the manufacturers of Neotame to hide the fact that foods contain this ingredient!
It begs the question:
If this ingredient, Neotame, is so safe then why hide the fact that a product contains it?
As you will see in the original document Food Standards Australia and New Zealand approved the use of Neotame for both Australia and New Zealand.
PLEASE WHEN YOU HAVE READ BOTH THESE LINKS – WRITE TO YOUR LOCAL MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT WHETHER IT BE AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND OR AMERICA AND DEMAND THAT THIS INGREDIENT HAS TO BE SHOWN ON ANY PRODUCT THAT CONTAINS IT NO MATTER HOW MINUTE THE AMOUNT MAY BE
Unless we can reverse this ruling by the FDA many people unknowingly will be poisoning themselves with this Neotame substance and bringing their level of health down and making them vulnerable to disease.
In August 2010 Dr Mercola released three new YouTubes on the dangers and side effects of aspartame
I am always amazed at the number of people who purchase a soft drink that contains no sugar. Well maybe it doesn’t contain sugar but what it does contain will blow you away when you find out. I have to admit that it takes all my willpower not to speak to the people in my checkout line at the local supermarket when I see them purchasing these products and a chocolate coated biscuit product that contains four ingredients which are petrochemicals! Incidentally the biscuits have been banned in the United States for many, many years! Do some research on the ingredients and then see whether you would eat them again! You might like to ask why they have been banned in America for probably at least the last 8 years and why Australia and New Zealand are still so aggressively marketing them! I continually find them at the front of the store in a big display on “special”! This is one of the main reasons for my Aspartame Truth pages and other pages on my Healthymoneyvine website.
Please take the time to view this YouTube. Put aside 52 minutes of your time and help to save the lives of your family!
Many years ago I read that Aspartame was contained in at least 5,000 foods that we buy off the shelf and today I believe that figure is even higher.
It is so important that when you are shopping allow yourself enough time to READ THE LABELS not just for aspartame but for other dangerous ingredients which Governments worldwide are allowing to be added to your foods.

Dr Russell Blaylock – Interview with Mike Adams
Were you aware that food companies add chemicals to their products that stimulate hunger and disrupt normal appetite control?
It's a clever (but downright devious) strategy for selling more food and boosting the profits of food corporations.
But the truth about these chemicals -- known as excitotoxins -- is never explained to consumers. The food companies don't want you to know that these chemicals cause obesity, infertility, migraines and cancer, among other health problems.
Dirty food company secrets revealed!
Now, in an exclusive Mike Adams interview, Dr. Russell Blaylock reveals the startling truth about these common taste-enhancing chemicals: monosodium glutamate, aspartame, yeast extract, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, autolyzed proteins and more!”
A new report has just been released by Dr Mercola on Aspartame (October 2009). All the people who are consumers of diet soda – Marilyn Vine urges them to please read this Healthymoneyvine web page as the information on aspartame may just save your life!
Dr Mercola’s article will be the link below. This is a very small excerpt from his report on aspartame truth:
”On the heels of its approval for use in diet soda in 1983, over a million pounds of aspartame was consumed. Less than a year later, in January 1984, the incidence of brain cancer took off at a rate far higher than any other type of cancer.” Sweeteners More Dangerous Than You Ever Imagined
Truth about aspartame toxicity
The truth about its toxicity is far different than what the NutraSweet Company would have readers believe.
In February of 1994, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released the listing of adverse reactions reported to the FDA (DHHS 1994). It accounted for more than 75% of all adverse reactions reported to the FDA's Adverse Reaction Monitoring System (ARMS). By the FDA's own admission fewer then ONE PERCENT of those who have problems with something they consume ever report it to the FDA. This balloons the almost 10,000 complaints they once had to around a million and they tend to discourage or even misdirect complaints, at least on aspartame. The fact remains, though, that MOST victims don't have a clue that this may be the cause of their many problems!
The aspartame truth!
Aspartame Disease Mimics Symptoms or Worsens the Following Diseases
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS)
Diabetes and Diabetic Complications
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Depression and other Psychological Disorders
How it happens
Methanol is released in the small intestine when the methyl group of aspartame encounters the enzyme chymotrypsin (Stegink 1984, page 143). Free methanol begins to form in liquid aspartame-containing products at temperatures above 86 degrees F and also within the human body. The methanol is then converted to formaldehyde. The formaldehyde converts to formic acid, ant sting poison. Toxic formic acid is used as an activator to strip epoxy and urethane coatings. Imagine what it does to your tissues!
Aspartame truth - this is one of the many subjects that I have been reading about for the past 14 years or so (as at January 2011).
My understanding is that once the source is removed that many of the symptoms will disappear. In other instances the user is left with the end result. A pretty bad situation for someone who probably believes that they have been doing the right thing in using diet drinks to cut down on their sugar intake! Where are the health authorities in relation to protecting their citizen’s health? Our Government Officials right throughout the world seem to be more interested in other issues than in looking after the health of their countrymen. In fact in some ways they try to bring this health level down by going after the complementary health industry who at least is trying to do the right thing by individuals by advising them what they should be taking in the way of nutritional supplementation to support their health.
