Diet sodas linked to premature deaths in women

A newly published scientific study concludes that diet sodas (with aspartame) are linked to premature deaths in women

(NaturalNews) A decade-long study of 60,000 women has confirmed that drinking diet soda sweetened with aspartame is linked with a 30 percent increase in heart attack risk and a 50 percent increase in death risk.

The findings, presented at the American College of Cardiology(1), have already been partially swept under the rug with the false explanation that diet drinks don’t necessarily cause these risks but are instead merely correlated with them. “Women who toss back too many diet sodas may be trying to make up for unhealthy habits,” claims an article on CNBC,(2) while citing no evidence whatsoever to support the claim. Keep in mind that any time a synthetic vitamin is correlated with increased mortality, the entire scientific community immediately describes those synthetic vitamins as “causing” death. Correlation is causation only when industry-funded scientists say it is.

Aspartame is a neurotoxin

What scientists refuse to explore — even when the data clearly show a strong death risk association — is that aspartame is a neurotoxin. The reason why women who drink diet soda have a 50 percent increased death risk is, of course, far more likely to be caused by what’s in the diet soda rather than some lifestyle choice.

Aspartame, after all, is made from the feces of genetically engineered bacteria. It is not a natural sugar but rather a chemical compound created in an industrial lab. Used in diet sodas, it breaks down into a number of chemical compounds including formaldehyde and methanol. During digestion, the formaldehyde is oxidized into formic acid, a chemical known to cause toxicity in mammalian biology. Formic acid is also secreted by ants as part of their “chemical weapons” arsenal.

Aspartame linked to long list of neurological problems

Aspartame denialists try to pretend that all this formaldehyde, methanol and formic acid has no effect on human health. Their argument is identical to that of GMO denialists: “GMOs are harmless!” It’s even the same argument as mercury denialists: “Mercury is harmless!”

Why, then, is aspartame so frequently linked to blurred vision, headaches and neurological problems when repeatedly consumed in the form of diet drinks? In fact, there are over 90 side effects linked to aspartame consumption, including headaches/migraines, dizziness, seizures, nausea, numbness, rashes, depression, irritability, insomnia, hearing loss, vision problems, loss of taste vertigo and memory loss.

Soda companies and misinformed doctors all try to pretend none of these side effects are real — that people are all imagining headaches, blurred vision, numbness, insomnia and so on. That’s how unethical the soda industry is: they poison their own customers with a neurotoxic chemical, then call them delusional when they suffer neurological side effects.

    Corporate logo’s and symbolism expose the Elitist connection to every thing they control. Most people do not know or care about the sinister underlying meanings or symbols. If they did, we the masses could quite easily defeat the minority that runs this planet. Problem is, the masses have been programed to block or shut down there brains if it is something out side of the realm of their predictive programed reality. I think the masses are like Zombies, which is, they are the walking dead.

    another scandal with a BBC homosexual comedian is about to explode, a boy who was 14 at the time has come forward with 2 witnesses all now in the late 30s that he was matchsticked
    by the well known BBC comedian.
    * matchsticked is the homosexual practise of dipping a matchstick in peppermint oil and pushing it down the eyehole of the boys dick

    MATCHSTICKING
    this is so like the game of roman candles.
    A group of homosexuals will each put a fiver or ten pund note on the table and a live match is put down the eyehole of the penis just half way, thena cigarette lighter is used to set the match off, whoever can bear it the longest wins the money, i read in Bumboy mag that Michael Barrymore was an expert at this game.

    I also heard that piece on conspiracy news about Michael Barrymore, and the thing to remember is that the key word was “alleged ” –
    Bill Williams
