Aspartame is a killer and Dr. Betty Martini knows it. Nearly 20 years ago, she began the fight for justice for those who had been injured and even killed by this deadly toxin and for full disclosure to the public about the realities of “Aspartame Disease”. Mission Possible - World Health International was founded in 1993 by Dr. Betty Martini to do just that.
So what is Aspartame?
Aspartame is an addictive, genetically engineered carcinogen. It is marketed as an artificial sweetener and a "healthy" alternative to sugar. NutraSweet and Equal are the most popular name brands, but many others exist as well. Make no mistake, however; it is a toxic and deadly drug, synthesized from the amino acids, phenylalanine and aspartic acid, and a methyl ester that promptly becomes free methyl alcohol, which is universally recognized as a severe poison. It was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1974, but has remained at the center of several highly publicized controversies ever since.
Can Aspartame really hurt me?
YES! The consequences of Aspartame consumption on the human body and mind are far-reaching. More than 90 different symptoms have been associated with Aspartame and numerous diseases are thought to be triggered by it's use: numbness, headaches, blurry vision, fatigue, vertigo, weakness, nausea, rashes, weight gain, irritability, anxiety, depression, memory loss, heart palpitations, blindness, sexual dysfunction, seizures, lupus, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and numerous cancers to name just a few. However, these effects are not only suffered by the original consumer. Aspartame is also implicated in miscarriages and numerous birth defects and can even damage human DNA creating a lasting impact on future generations.
Are there any safe sugar alternatives?
YES! Stevia is an all-natural herbal sweetener that comes from a small green plant native to Paraguay. The herb has leaves which have a delicious, pleasing taste that can be 30 times sweeter than sugar. Another alternative is Chinese Luo Han Guo, also known as "The monk fruit". The plant is cultivated for it's sweet gourd-like fruit as well as it's use in traditional Chinese medicine. Make sure to purchase these at your local health food store or co-op in their natural, organic form and not as a mixture or concoction at the grocery store.
