    READ THIS ASPARTAME, What do you know about it?

    This stuff is banned in America and yet in the UK....you can hardly find anything without it in

    abdominal pain
    pain when swallowing

    Skin and Allergies
    itching without a rash
    lip and mouth reactions
    hives
    aggravated respiratory allergies such as asthma

    Endocrine and Metabolic
    loss of control of diabetes
    menstrual changes
    marked thinning or loss of hair
    marked weight loss
    gradual weight gain
    aggravated low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
    severe PMS

    Other
    frequency of voiding and burning during urination
    excessive thirst, fluid retention, leg swelling, and bloating
    increased susceptibility to infection

    Additional Symptoms of Aspartame Toxicity include the most critical symptoms of all
    death
    irreversible brain damage
    birth defects, including mental retardation
    peptic ulcers
    aspartame addiction and increased craving for sweets
    hyperactivity in children
    severe depression
    aggressive behavior
    suicidal tendencies

    Aspartame may trigger, mimic, or cause the following illnesses:
    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
    Epstein-Barr
    Post-Polio Syndrome
    Lyme Disease
    Grave’s Disease
    Meniere’s Disease
    Alzheimer’s Disease
    ALS
    Epilepsy
    Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
    EMS
    Hypothyroidism

    Mercury sensitivity from Amalgam fillings
    Fibromyalgia
    Lupus
    -Hodgkins
    Lymphoma
    Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

    These are not allergies or sensitivities, but diseases and disease syndromes. Aspartame poisoning is commonly misdiagnosed because aspartame symptoms mock textbook ‘disease’ symptoms, such as Grave’s Disease.

    Aspartame changes the ratio of amino acids in the blood, blocking or lowering the levels of serotonin, tyrosine, dopamine, norepinephrine, and adrenaline. Therefore, it is typical that aspartame symptoms cannot be detected in lab tests and on x-rays. Textbook disorders and diseases may actually be a toxic load as a result of aspartame poisoning.

    Ever gone to the doctor with real, physical symptoms, but he/she can’t find the cause? Well, it’s probably your diet, your environment, or both.

    I have just bought 2 e 4litre bottles of Robinsons ordinary orange juice and checked the label....cant believe it.....ITS IN THAT TOO!!!!

    It's very difficult to get anything without it in. I don't like stuff with sweeteners in which Aspartame is considered to be, yet in order to keep off the fatty drinks you have to ditch the full sugar varieties and go for the diet or 'no added sugar' which still have aspartame in them.

    It's worrying that America bans it, but what do they use instead I wonder?

    Still, I think the side effects are listed in the extremes as they generally are in order to cover all possiblilties.
