    Default "diet" soft drinks-suicide on an installment plan

    'Diet' Soft Drinks - Suicide
    On An Installment Plan

    Crumpled Coke Can Poetic Justice
    12-14-4 http://www.rense.com/general60/diets...nkssuicide.htm




    The photo of a crumpled can of Diet Coke told the story in the Atlanta
    Journal Constitution, 30-1-2000, Coke's hometown paper. Fitting, poetic,
    just, but tragic for the company once rated "The Most Admired Business in
    the World". Today Coke wouldn't even make the list. Sales are down, profits
    collapsing, and 6,000 employees soon will be gone. (To make room for 6,000
    defence attorneys?) The tragedy is stupendously larger than 6,000 jobs; it
    affects hundreds of millions of unwarned, innocent, afflicted consumers
    across the broad face of planet earth.

    * This crisis can't be solved by belt tightening, greater efficiency, more
    advertising, etc. It's so bad Coke can't say the word; to pronounce it will
    bring instant cataclysm. That word is aspartame, and their only recourse is
    denial, denial, denial, though every ad and commercial builds higher the
    scaffold upon which Coke shall surely hang.

    * Reality is in that twisted Diet coke can. It's poison. It's killing the
    unborn, raining tumours and seizures on the population, destroying children,
    incapacitating workers, mimicking MS, erasing memory and blinding.

    * Inexorably Diet Coke visits a plague of 92 symptoms listed by our FDA on a
    secret report they'll never show which names diet soda as the first source
    of aspartame disease. And yes, Death was one of the 92.

    * Diet Coke is poison. And it's addictive, some victims drink several litres
    a day and keep it on their nightstands. If Coke changes the formula to
    remove aspartame the world will heal and the surge of hatred and vengeance
    by the disabled and bereaved shall certainly destroy Coca Cola.

    * The poison in Diet Coke is aspartame. As a member of the National Soft
    Drink Association, Coke opposed FDA approval of aspartame for beverages.
    Their objections, running to several pages published in the Congressional
    Record of 5/7/85, said aspartame is uniquely and inherently unstable and
    breaks down in the can. It decomposes into formaldehyde, methyl alcohol,
    formic acid, diketopiperazine and other toxins. In a study on 7 monkeys 5
    had grand mal seizures and one died, a casualty rate of 86%.

    * Coke knew; and knowing, broke their good faith contract with customers, a
    breach exhibited by the recent plot to program vending machines to raise the
    price with the temperature. Dissatisfied with selling flavoured sugar water
    plus phosphoric acid, they switched to pushing an addictive formula called
    Diet". Addictive substances multiply markets, so Diet Coke soared off the
    sales charts, spreading obesity in its flight. We're fatter because
    aspartame suppresses seratonin and makes us crave carbohydrates. Our brain
    is programmed to expect calories and carbohydrates when experiencing a sweet
    taste. When it doesn't get them, it triggers HUNGER.

    * So why is aspartame/NutraSweet/Equal/Diet Coke/Diet Pepsi/etc on the
    market and in thousands of foods? Can you say CORRUPTION? One FDA
    Commissioner and one acting Commissioner have changed sides to work in the
    NutraSweet industry, plus 6 underlings and two federal attorneys assigned to
    prosecute NutraSweet for submitting fraudulent tests to get it approved. "It
    s like a script for Abbott & Costello." lamented an honest FDA scientist
    writing to Senator Metzenbaum. It works like this: "Approve our poison, and
    when you stop being a bureaucrat we'll make you a plutocrat! After its
    icensed we'll pay off the American Dietetics, the American Diabetes
    Association, the AMA and anyone we need who's for sale."

    * The jig's up! Worldwide consumer action has exposed aspartame, and
    millions have kicked the habit. Coke's profits are down 37% and for a year
    Monsanto's been trying to sell The NutraSweet Company. Finally they sold NSC
    producer of the phenylalanine in NutraSweet for $125 million. Now Monsanto
    faces a $71 million lawsuit for exaggerating profits. Monsanto stock is in
    the toilet, but they may have found a buyer in the Swiss firm
    Pharmacia-Upjohn. P.U. for short! The deal won't finalize for a year. The
    plans are to ditch the Monsanto name, as its stench is unendurable. CEO Bob
    Shapiro may soon be history, like Doug Ivester of Coke who just resigned.

    Will the last one out please turn out the lights! The next time you reach
    for a diet drink (or some Sweet & Low), please consider some fruit juice.
    You will be much healthier.

    Have a great diet-soda-free day.

    I quit drinking diet drinks about 2 years ago because I got so many headaches and optical migraines. Sure am glad I did.

    I am glad that you quit drinking it too dolphin! I cringe everytime I see someone with a product containing this in their grocery cart It's not uncommon for me to educate them on it right then and there. Some do not believe it though, but most will never buy it again. You win some and you lose some

    Dixie! No doubt that the Aspartame/Nutrasweet are causing his problems. And he is most likely very deficient in vital minerals as well. Drinking pop, diet or regular, will deplete you very quickly of these. And the magnesium deficiency can cause major headaches right along with the Aspartame poisoning. I believe there are several other articles on Aspartame poisoning posted over in Natural Health. Rhonda posted one and I posted one.......I think.

    I never used to drink or eat anything with aspartame until 6 years ago, when I decided to lose weight. I've always been a person who tried to eat more natural than anything...but I quit drinking diet drinks, when I found out that it decreases Serotonin levels in the brain....which causes to be depressed and have anxiety....which I was experiencing both, but mostly anxiety.

    2 weeks after I stopped, I became my old self again--no more anixiety attacks and less depressed. Imagine, I was then taking anti-depressants to INCREASE my Serotonin levels and the diet drinks were DECREASING my serotonin levels---so my meds were not working on me. I had been taking the meds for a year with little change in my depression, back then.....and then after I quit the diet stuff, I became so much happier!

    Maybe you won't believe me, but I know it's true for me and NEVER again will I eat or drink anything with aspartame.

    I never drink diet soda. I have not trusted any artificial sweeteners that have been on the market. I am a waitress in a family restaurant, and it bothers me alot when parents will order diet soft drinks for their very young children.

    So, if I drink diet soda and have no symptoms that means?? I am lucky? I am the odd percent that it does not effect? I just need more time before I am effected?

    Just some of my random thoughts.

    I do know who I believe when it comes to aspartame and thats my own body. Only when I was drinking diet Pepsi did I have severe headaches and stomach problems. I've had none since.

    Even had Lynn not posted this article, I knew what aspartame did to me.
