To be more specific, when compared to women who drink diet drinks less than one time per week, those who drink two such beverages or more per day have a 31 percent higher likelihood of suffering an ischemic stroke, a 23 percent higher chance of stroke, a 29 percent higher chance of developing heart disease, and are 16 percent more likely to die overall.

Danger of Diet Drinks

February 14, 2019

Two cans of sugar-free fizzy drinks per day could increase a woman’s risk of a heart attack or stroke by almost a third, according to a study.

The major study of over 80,000 women is one of the first times the risk of specific types of stroke in older women who drink diet drinks has been studied.

Evidence for Aspartame – Alzheimer link emerges

June 30, 2014

Most public health agencies and nutritionists in the United States still recommend no- or low-calorie artificial sweeteners as an acceptable, and even preferred, alternative to sugar. This flawed advice can have very serious repercussions for those who follow it.

Artificial sweeteners of all kinds have been found to wreak havoc with your health in a number of different ways. Aspartame, which is perhaps the worst of the bunch, has a long list of studies indicating its harmful effects, ranging from brain damage to pre-term delivery.

Aspartame is also the number one source of side effect complaints to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), with over 10,000 complaints filed and over 91 documented symptoms related to its consumption.

Most recently, studies are also starting to confirm lingering suspicions that artificial sweeteners like aspartame may play a role in the development of Alzheimer’s disease, a serious form of dementia that is now thought to kill over half a million Americans each year.

The key mechanism of harm appears to be methanol toxicity—a much-ignored problem associated with aspartame in particular.

Diet drinks linked with heart disease and death

March 30, 2014

Older women who drink two or more diet drinks a day are more likely to suffer from heart problems, high blood pressure and diabetes, a new study shows.

Postmenopausal women with a two-a-day soft drink habit were 50 per cent more likely to suffer from cardiovascular-related diseases, the Women’s Health Initiative Observational Study discovered.

They were also 30 per cent more likely to suffer heart attacks and strokes compared to those who consumed the drinks in moderation or not at all.

60,000 women with an average age of 62.8 were asked how many low-calorie fruit drinks and diet soft drinks they had drunk over a three-month period.

Based on the results, the women were then separated into groups – with those who drank two or more diet drinks marked as heavy consumers.

Almost a decade later, researchers asked the women whether they had experienced any heart-related problems, including heart attacks, blood clots and strokes.

‘Heavy consumers’ were found to have suffered the most health problems.

The research also took into account various factors like participants BMI, physical activity levels, and other lifestyle choices.

People who drink diet fizzy drinks tend to have a higher BMI

January 27, 2014

Many dieters opt for sugar-free drinks in a bid to shed some excess pounds, but new research suggests this tactic is not effective.

U.S. researchers found that overweight and obese adults who drink diet fizzy drinks consume more calories from food than those who drink regular fizzy drinks.

The researchers, at the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, examined national patterns in adult drink consumption and calorie intake.

Aspertame sweetener in diet drinks and other products bad for your health

December 14, 2013

The Obama administration’s Department of Agriculture has released nutrition standards for “competitive” foods and has outlawed snacks considered unhealthy by the nanny state federal government.
“Regular soda is out, though high-schoolers may have access to diet versions,” The Hill reports.
That’s right – the government is recommending our kids drink soda laden with the deadly neurotoxin aspartame.
As usual, the right hand of government has no idea what the left hand is doing… or maybe it does.
Aspartame is so dangerous and detrimental to health, even the FDA has failed to approve it – for two decades running.

How Aspartame became legal

May 30, 2013

From Norfolk Genetic Information Network (Taken from Welcome to the Spin Machine by Michael Manville http://www.freezerbox.com/archive/2001/04/biotech/ http://www.freezerbox.com/ )

In 1985 Monsanto purchased G.D. Searle, the chemical company that held the patent to aspartame, the active ingredient in NutraSweet. Monsanto was apparently untroubled by aspartame’s clouded past, including a 1980 FDA Board of Inquiry, comprised of three independent scientists, which confirmed that it “might induce brain tumors.”

The FDA had actually banned aspartame based on this finding, only to have Searle Chairman Donald Rumsfeld (currently the Secretary of Defense) vow to “call in his markers,” to get it approved.

On January 21, 1981, the day after Ronald Reagan’s inauguration, Searle re-applied to the FDA for approval to use aspartame in food sweetener, and Reagan’s new FDA commissioner, Arthur Hayes Hull, Jr., appointed a 5-person Scientific Commission to review the board of inquiry’s decision.

It soon became clear that the panel would uphold the ban by a 3-2 decision, but Hull then installed a sixth member on the commission, and the vote became deadlocked. He then personally broke the tie in aspartame’s favor. Hull later left the FDA under allegations of impropriety, served briefly as Provost at New York Medical College, and then took a position with Burston-Marsteller, the chief public relations firm for both Monsanto and GD Searle. Since that time he has never spoken publicly about aspartame.
