Aspartame triggers, or causes the following illnesses:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,
Adult onset leukaemia,
Multiple Sclerosis (MS),
Mercury sensitivity from Amalgam fillings,
Attention Deficit Disorder, (ADD)
These are not allergies or sensitivities, but diseases and disease syndromes.
Aspartame poisoning is commonly misdiagnosed because aspartame symptoms mock textbook ‘disease’ symptoms, such as Grave’s Disease.
Aspartame changes the ratio of amino acids in the blood, blocking or lowering the levels of serotonin, tyrosine, dopamine, norepinephrine, and adrenaline.
Therefore, it is typical that aspartame symptoms cannot be detected in lab tests and on x-rays.
Textbook disorders and diseases may actually be a toxic load as a result of aspartame poisoning.
