NutraSweet Linked to Leukemia and Lymphoma

NutraSweet Linked to Leukemia and Lymphoma

(NaturalNews) Research has shown a connection between lymphoma, leukemia, and aspartame as far back as 2005. The FDA approved this synthetic sweetener for use in 1981. Currently used in over six thousand products, aspartame is sold under many different brand names, including NutraSweet, Equal Measure, and Spoonful. It can be found in soda, desserts, yogurt, and even in chewable vitamins.

In the first year after its approval, the FDA received over 600 consumer complaints about health issues. Migraine headaches and dizziness, insomnia, joint pain, memory loss, hives, rash, abdominal cramping, hallucinations, seizures and even deaths were reported related to aspartame consumption. The FDA contacted the Center for Disease Control who did not find any consistent issues. Recently, in the spring of 2009, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) also concluded that aspartame showed no carcinogenic potential at the allowable daily intake (ADI) of 40/mg/kg.

Over 900 studies have been published on aspartame, including one in May 2009 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. This recent article investigated the link between formaldehyde and lymph cancer. A study in 2007 on rats showed that aspartame ingestion caused formaldehyde buildup to such a degree that the rat's skin became yellow.

Since 1987, formaldehyde has been listed by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a probable human carcinogen. Used as an embalming agent, formaldehyde has been indicated in birth defects, and in environmental allergies. It has been shown to cause both lymphoma and leukemia in lab rats and in humans. It is known that aspartame turns into formaldehyde in the body, but it has been thought that this formaldehyde was then being eliminated quickly. However, a study in 1998 demonstrated that dietary aspartame binds to tissues in protein. It was found in liver, kidney, and blood. The report suggested that the buildup of aspartame was cumulative; that is, it continues to build up without being excreted, causing more damage over time. This report concluded that "aspartame consumption may constitute a hazard because of its contribution to the formation of formaldehyde adducts."

Based on these findings, it is wise to avoid aspartame and artificial sweeteners. Even sugar is a better alternative than the substitute. Drink regular sodas instead of diet, or even better, diet soft drinks can be replaced with club soda mixed with a few ounces of fruit juice. Use honey or molasses to sweeten foods and to bake. Though aspartame has government safety approval, the facts and the studies suggest that avoiding aspartame is good for your health.;=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DiscoveryPanel.Pubmed_Discovery_RA&linkpos;=1&log;$=relatedarticles&logdbfrom;=pubmed;=pubmed&cmd;=Search&TransSchema;=title&term;=Trocho%5Bauthor%5D%20AND%20formaldehyde

Village Interviews: Fete de la Musique - Paris

7:30 pm
MNN (Click on Channel 67)

Dear Friends :

Happy Bastille Day (Plus one)!

The following can be viewed on any relatively high-speed computer anywhere or on TV in Manhattan:

Today, Wednesday, July 15th, at 7:30 PM (EDT-that's NYC Eastern Daylight Time), on Channel 67, I am re-airing a half-hour program of a recording I made in Paris in 2002 during the Fete de la Musique for my shoestring cable show Famousx2. In addition to some shots of Martiniquen politically - aware Reggae rapper Daddy Nuttea at an outdoor concert in La Republique, there are sequences of all kinds of street musicians, including a great Salsa band.

It is definitely worth setting your VCR, DVR or any recording devices you may have on your computer. The sound quality is good!

If you are in Manhattan and have access to Time Warner, you can see it this Wednesday July 15th, at 7:30 PM (DST-that's NYC Daylight Savings Time) on Channel 67. On the RCN system, that should be Channel 85 or thereabouts.

If you are in Manhattan and have access to Time Warner, you can see it this Wednesday February 27th, at 7:30 PM (EST-that's NYC Eastern Standard Time) on Channel 67. On the RCN system, that should be Channel 85 or thereabouts.

If you are outside of Manhattan, anywhere in the world, and you have a good high-speed connection on your computer, you can go to MNN-What's on Now? or to MNN and click on channel 67 to see it at the same time.

Sometimes MNN does screw up broadcasts, but usually they air things without too many problems.....Be patient if it screws up for a few minutes.
