The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continues to deny that the artificial sweetener known as aspartame is in any way harmful to humans. But according to Dr. Betty Martini, founder of Mission Possible World Health International, an FDA agent openly admitted to her that aspartame is basically being used to “depopulate” the planet.
Back in 2000, Dr. Martini created a citizens’ petition calling on the FDA to ban aspartame from food, citing an “imminent health hazard.” Though the law requires that the FDA respond to such petitions within 180 days, Dr. Martini didn’t hear back from the agency for nine years, when she received a late-night call to her personal home phone.
As reported by NaturalHealth365.com, Dr. Martini asked the FDA agent on the other end of the phone why it took so long for his agency to respond to her petition, “even though people are sick and dying” all over the world as a result of aspartame, she stated. His response was one of nonchalant disregard.
“So what?” the FDA agent reportedly stated. “We need to depopulate,” he added.
Aspartame responsible for more than 75 percent of all food additive-related adverse reactions
First approved by the FDA back in 1980, aspartame has become a staple sweetener additive to thousands of food and beverage items sold all around the world. Manufactured by the drug company Pfizer, aspartame is made from two naturally-occurring amino acids: aspartic acid and phenylalanine.
Originally discovered as a chemical weapon, aspartame never would have been considered a potential “food,” were it not for the scientists who discovered that it had a “sweet” taste. G.D. Searle was the first to manufacture aspartame as an artificial sweetener, and it has since become ubiquitous in many “diet” products sold as food.
But the truth of the matter is that aspartame is a deadly neurotoxin that damages cellular mitochondria. Dr. Russell Blaylock, M.D., a board-certified neurosurgeon and professor, warns that consumption of aspartame can cause a host of debilitating conditions, including, but not limited to, chronic headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, numbness, memory loss, seizures, vision loss, and even sudden death.
In the longer term, aspartame consumption can lead to multiple sclerosis (MS), epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and even cancer.
Aspartame is “the most dangerous food additive ever approved for human consumption,” according to Mark Stengler, NMD, “America’s Natural Doctor.” It is further associated with more than 75 percent of all reported adverse reactions related to the consumption of food additives.
Aspartame is an “excitotoxin” that destroys brain neurons
Because of the way it impacts brain neurotransmitters, aspartame has further been shown to destroy necessary brain neurons by “exciting” them to the point that they self-destruct. For this reason, aspartame is classified as an “excitotoxin” that can cause brain damage.
When broken down to its methanol state, aspartame is also considered to be a carcinogen because it results in the formation of formaldehye, aka rat poison. People who consume high amounts of aspartame can end up intaking more than 30 times the daily safe limit recommended by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), potentially causing ear ringing and buzzing, vertigo, chills, memory lapses, and vision problems.
According to Dr. Martini, there are more than 900 studies published in reputable journals showing that aspartame is dangerous, and has no place in the human diet. Even the American Cancer Society (ACS) admits on its website that aspartame intake is associated with higher rates of lymphoma and leukemia, suggesting that aspartame is, indeed, cancer-causing.
