I received an e-mail from a friend, it was also e-mailed to him by his friend. As I was reading it, I got alarmed...Did you know that Artificial Sweeteners like in Diet Sodas contains Aspartame (marketed as Nutrasweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.) Aspartame is dangerous, when the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in Aspartame converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic Acidocis. Formic acid is the poison found in fire ants. The methanol toxicity mimics, among other conditions, multiple sclerosis, and systemic lupus. Many people were being diagnosed in error. Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, methanol toxicity is. Systemic lupus has become as rampant as multiple sclerosis especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. The victim usually doesn't know that the Aspartame is the culprit He or she continues its use; irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become a life-threatening condition. They have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once take off diet sodas. In cases of those with multiple sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. Many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly. If you are using ASPARTAME (nutrasweet, equal, etc), and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting, pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headache, tinnitus, joint pain, unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or, memory loss, you probably have ASPARTAME poisoning.

YUp I receieved this email also long time ago. This is truly alarming. Sometimes we dont know that those that we normally consumed or eat is already hazardous to our health. Sometimes when we want something that supposed to be protecting our health it turns out to cause some problem. Anyway I appreciate you typing this one. I know you could not copy and paste yet so you really exert an effort for this. Thanks for the concern...

Yes aspartame is very very bad for us....I have been avoiding it for years now and I know someone who got extremely sick from it....It should be banned.

They tried to banned it but it was denied. Too glad I don't drink soda. And even if I have diabetes, I don't use artificial sweetener. Thanks for responding.

it's very informative message my friend, thanks for informing us about this dangerous ingredients found in diet soda, i prefer to drink mineral water than having any cold drinks available in the area because i am preventing myself from UTI, so i only drink if no water available but minimal amount and later on dilute it with water to neutralize the content. anyway, thank you. see you around again.

The moment I received this e-mail, I said, I got to inform my friends. I already sent the same email to my relatives who are diet soda drinkers, coz we are a family of diabetics. I'm glad I don't drink soda, I prefer fresh juice, tea and water. Thanks for responding my friend. See you around too.

I remember I received this kind of email before. The difference is that, the subject of the message I received is shampoo. They said that some product now has formaldehyde included. I never took it seriously, we still continue using the product, but we minimize the usage. Anyway, we are just temporary, we will end to nothing. What is important is, how we live and how we use our lives...
