Splenda correlations with Parkinson's Disease

2 Facts that 1 should consider and analyze before ingesting splenda:

1) Splenda was serendipitously discovered in the formulation of pesticides (1970's)

2) Research is supporting a strong correlation between Parkinson's Disease and pesticides (many published studies in Spring 2009)

A may not cause B, but they are correlated, and the pesticide data can be loosely extrapolated to splenda.

Beware, Parkinson's is progressive, and unstoppable. Not to mention, pesticides can cause other motor neuron control diseases as well.

oh, and check this list out for aspartame.
theres over 92. enjoy!

According to Lendon Smith, M.D. there is an enormous population suffering from side effects associated with aspartame, yet have no idea why drugs, supplements and herbs don’t relieve their symptoms. Then, there are users who don’t ‘appear’ to suffer immediate reactions at all. Even these individuals are susceptible to the long-term damage caused by excitatory amino acids, phenylalanine, methanol, and DKP.

Adverse reactions and side effects of aspartame include:

blindness in one or both eyes
decreased vision and/or other eye problems such as: blurring, bright flashes, squiggly lines, tunnel vision, decreased night vision
pain in one or both eyes
decreased tears
trouble with contact lenses
bulging eyes

tinnitus - ringing or buzzing sound
severe intolerance of noise
marked hearing impairment

epileptic seizures
headaches, migraines and (some severe)
dizziness, unsteadiness, both
confusion, memory loss, both
severe drowsiness and sleepiness
paresthesia or numbness of the limbs
severe slurring of speech
severe hyperactivity and restless legs
atypical facial pain
severe tremors

severe depression
personality changes

palpitations, tachycardia
shortness of breath
recent high blood pressure

diarrhea, sometimes with blood in stools
abdominal pain
pain when swallowing

Skin and Allergies
itching without a rash
lip and mouth reactions
aggravated respiratory allergies such as asthma

Endocrine and Metabolic
loss of control of diabetes
menstrual changes
marked thinning or loss of hair
marked weight loss
gradual weight gain
aggravated low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
severe PMS

frequency of voiding and burning during urination
excessive thirst, fluid retention, leg swelling, and bloating
increased susceptibility to infection

Additional Symptoms of Aspartame Toxicity include the most critical symptoms of all
irreversible brain damage
birth defects, including mental retardation
peptic ulcers
aspartame addiction and increased craving for sweets
hyperactivity in children
severe depression
aggressive behavior
suicidal tendencies

Aspartame may trigger, mimic, or cause the following illnesses:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Post-Polio Syndrome
Lyme Disease
Grave’s Disease
Meniere’s Disease
Alzheimer’s Disease
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.

still think they're better for you?

Aspartame was also accidently discovered by a scientist searching for a superdrug, but ended up with a sweet poison instead.

The parallel trend of increasing obesity and increased artificial sweetener use since the 1980's is also disturbing. Orwellian double-think, reduced sugar/calories should decrease obesity, but not the case.

This is ridiculous. Just because coc aine is processed with gasoline doesn't me I can run my car on it. There are studies that indicate that splenda can be bad for you if your daily intake accedes a gram

Fit people die of cancer.

I got off aspartame (and all other artificial sweeteners) when I found the head of GD Searle rammed it through the FDA under questionable circumstances....the head of GD Searle who rammed it through? Donald Rumsfeld.

P.S. when you post something like "Parkinson and Splenda causing problems" and then say "studies are showing it" 'bout posting some links to said studies? thanks in advance.

It's my belief that aspartame exacerbates various mycoplasma within our bodies. I think this is the cause of peoples symptoms from aspartame.
