Toxicity Effects of Aspartame Use and the
usage can cause panic attacks
Selection of Health Effects from Short-term and/or Long-Term Use
Note: It often takes at least sixty days without *any* aspartame or
NutraSweet to see a significant improvement. Check all labels very carefully
(including vitamins and pharmaceuticals). Look for the word "aspartame" on
the label and avoid it. (Also, it is a good idea to avoid "acesulfame-k" or
"sunette.") Finally, avoid getting nutrition information from junk food
industry PR organizations such as IFIC or organizations that accept large
sums of money from the junk and chemical food industry such as the American
Blood Sugar Control Problems (Hypoglycemia or Hyperglycemia)
Menstrual Problems or Changes
Impotency and Sexual Problems
Craving for Food
Hair Loss (Baldness) or Thinning of Hair
Excessive Thirst or Hunger

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS)
Diabetes and Diabetic Complications
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Depression, Panic attacks and other Psychological Disorders The truth about aspartame's toxicity is far different than what the NutraSweet Company would have your readers believe. In February of 1994, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released the listing of adverse reactions reported to the FDA (DHHS 1994). Aspartame accounted for more than 75% of all adverse reactions reported to the FDA's Adverse Reaction Monitoring System (ARMS). Many reactions to aspartame were very serious including seizures and death. In an epidemiological study which appeared in the Journal of Applied Nutrition (Roberts 1988), 551 persons who have reported reactions to aspartame were surveyed. What follows is a listing of the adverse health effects which were found.
Two-thirds of the population and 40% of the
children in this country are using products
Benevia, E951, etc.). It is a neurotoxic
drug, a deadly chemical poison, and
masquerading as an additive. The 50%
phenylalanine in it as an isolate is
neurotoxic and goes directly into the brain.
It lowers the seizure threshold and depletes
serotonin. When you lower serotonin it
triggers manic depression or bipolar, mood
swings, anxiety, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, panic
attacks, paranoia, hallucinations, etc. It
also interacts with ALL antidepressants. In
fact, it interacts with just about every
drug used to treat the problems it causes.
This is all discussed in the huge medical

According to researchers and physicians
studying the adverse effects of aspartame,
the following list contains a selection of
chronic illnesses which may be triggered or
worsened by ingesting of aspartame (Mission
Chronic fatigue syndrome
In some cases such as MS, the severe
symptoms mimic the illness or exacerbate the
illness, but do not cause the disease.
the U.S. Air Force's magazine "Flying
Safety" and the U.S. Navy's magazine, "Navy
Physiology" published articles warning about
the many dangers of aspartame including the
cumulative deleterious effects of methanol
and the greater likelihood of birth defects.
The articles note that the ingestion of
aspartame may make pilots more susceptible
to seizures and vertigo (US Air Force 1992).
All we ask is to think about it. If you are
experiencing panic attacks try staying away
from aspartame for a few months and see if
your symptoms improve and your panic attacks
Adding natural alternative treatments for anxiety, panic attacks,
OCD, depression, ADHD, Eating Disorders, and phobias can make a big
difference in your life. We have spent years researching these programs
to help these disorders before they become disabling disorders.
