This is in response to the article entitled, “There Are Dangers in Drinking Diet Soda,” which may be found at http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/07/13/there-are-dangers-in-drinking-diet-soda.html
All these problems are discussed in Dr. H. J. Roberts 1000 page medical text, "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic", http:// www.sunsentpress.com There are some in Dr. Russell Blaylock's "Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills" and also his book, "Health and Nutrition Secrets That Will Save Your Life", http://www.russellblaylockmd.com
As most of you know since I've written a lot about it now, the birth defect studies the FDA refused to release for 30 years putting no warning for pregnant women on aspartame. Dr. Monte was able to acquire four and I sent him two of them. So he wrote, "While Science Sleeps" discussing these were neural tube defects which cause autism, (from the methanol), spina bifida, cleft palate, etc. You can read the chapter free on his web site, http://www.whilesciencesleeps.com
If you're interested in just how bad the epidemic of Aspartame Disease is you need only read the statistics on the back of Dr. Monte's book. "The introduction of aspartame into the food supply of the United States began in the summer of 1981. Since that time, the incidence of Alzheimer's deaths has increased 10,000%. Autism has with no explanation increased 2500%. Autoimmune diseases have reached epidemic proportions, with Lupus (SLE) up 300%, and Multiple Sclerosis, Type !! Diabetes and Rheumatoid Arthritis headed out of control. Cancers, the hallmark of formaldehyde exposure, have exploded. Skin Cancer has shot up over 400%, liver cancer has tripled, kidney cancer has doubled, and breast cancer is up 50%. The list goes on ..."
I have many times discussed these diseases with regard to aspartame over 20 years.
