Hah. You're forgetting about the base water. In which you'll find SSRIs, estrogen agents and birth control pills, fluoride, a pluthera of dna damaging, cancer causing, neurotoxic agents, gender benders. Not to mention the plastics seeping into the drink from the bottled versions, birth defects (malformed brain development, malformed genitals) and gender bending, not to mention additional painkillers and antipsychotics.

i didn't read through page 2 but i see it's been said several times that IT'S IN ASPARTAME.... it's used to make the stuff. the reason for the warning label is because some people have genetic disorder and they have to stay away from that particular amino acid.

i have a very frightening story about aspartame and no one ever really takes me seriously but i believe the story.... i don't have the time to type it out right now because i have to leave town shortly and i've got some stuff to do.

aspartame is seriously BAD stuff. if you think you are addicted to diet drinks (you need one or more everyday) it's the aspartame you are hooked on.

aspartame breaks down in to formaldehyde when heated. or.... when it sits around too long.

it's poisonous. stay away from it. it may be made from "natural" ingredients but in the end it's a chemical compound you shouldn't be ingesting.

i may not be able to type my story until monday morning. if someone wants to U2U me to remind me that would be cool.

Well actually if you read the label it contains Aspartame and Phenylalanine.

I bet if you brought a bottle of MD to a chemist, and told him what was in it, you'd have to pay him to drink it.

Perhaps we are all suffering from some form of chemical addiction or another.....There is a great controversey thats stirring and the recent legislation over food seems to protact the rights of corporations to do as they will with what they sell us to eat or drink, as well as cutting off any chance of obtaining uncontaminated food from organic producers etc.
In the future we are going to see a lot of food producers disallowed from selling thier products.
There is no doubr that there are bad effects from chemical additives.
I have heard that those who were killed in vietnam wouldnt begin decomposition for a longer period that the VC.
If true this alone should be ringing bells....
The facts seem to add up to corporate control of goverment agencies and legislation, through their immense cash donations to politicians, and their ability to seed certain legislative bodies with those who are on side with the corporate agendaa.
This appears to be how much of what is damaging to us gets fed to us.......

A Hypothetical Situation

Dick Chaney goes to the "BIG" CEO of Pepsi Cola.

Dick Chaney: Hey Guy,Great golf game last week huh?

CEO: Yeah that was a good one Dick,so what's on your mind today "BUDDY"?

Dick: Well Guy,i've got some great investments in some additive products,but the share holders need a little boost.

CEO: Well how can i help Dick?

Dick: Well ya see,we've been doing some government studies for a while now on some very marketable products,and we find in laboratory studies with rats,that these products are fairly safe and make the RATS more docile and consume more.

CEO: Well! That sounds great Dick! Anything for an old "BUDDY"!

Dick: Thank you GUY,and it will help boost your sales too! See,We both make out good!

idk about any of the major affects or anything , but i can tell you my mother started drinking diet drinks and after a few weeks she had migraines constantly, like really bad, and after a few weeks she stopped drinking diet and switched back to normal drinks and they went away. im usually not one to correlate anything without fullproof evidence, but just figured i'd share this with you guys. take it for what its worth i guess

Good lord

The OP is dead on.

1) Did the same research about ten years ago when :

I saw Phenylalanine on sweeteners, soft drinks, and many many other products.

2) In college I studied at the local medical school library. It was the perfect place to research. I also found in medical and psychological journals that phenylalanine had a variety of uses on the one end it was prescribed to deeply depressed individuals and for the life of me I cant remember what the other use was but it was the opposite of the first.

I avoided it for a long time.

If the drug tastes sweet and its used as sweetener does not quiet the cause for alarm. Its not aspartame as far as I can recall.

It was described independently of any other items in the soft drinks I researched.

NOT JUST MOUNTAIN DEW. ALMOST ALL SOFT DRINKS AND OTHER PRODUCTS.

I would say something, but its at the bottom of the list, meaning theres not really a large dose, meaning it's not really a big deal at all.

Thank you man for the words of wisdom. This is what I have been trying to say. And you actually researched at a medical library and have an understanding about what I am talking about. It is pretty derailing to have people discussing something they know very little about and think they know everything about it.

Again, thanks.

Ok so that is your reasoning behind dosages? If an ingredient s on the bottom of the list then it must mean a small dosage? Sounds pretty inaccurate tbh.

I have three family members who regularly consume large quantities of diet soda.

The first is a mother-in-law who can't live without her Diet Cokes. She's obese and her diabetes is worsening every year.

The second is a sister who refuses to give up diet sodas and has developed migraines that are so severe that she can no longer work. She now receives a hefty sum from our government and her former employer for "disability."

The third is a brother-in-law whose personality has undergone a complete change during the last decade when he started regularly consuming Diet Mountain Dew -- from a laid-back, fun, easy-going guy with a great sense of humour to a violent, paranoid control freak who gets so upset on a daily basis that he shouts until he foams at the mouth, throws things, and even rips his own shirt off in anger.

It's certainly possible that the diet soda isn't the culprit, however, it's apparent how addictive it must be, because none of these relatives can give it up, even when supplied the evidence of how harmful it is and what it might be doing to their bodies. That said, maybe the joke's on me when it comes to the sister who gets government disability for the migraines -- I have to work for a living and pay the taxes that help support her!

Thats how they do ingredient labels as far as I know. The hisghest amount of something goes at the top, and the smallest at the bottom:


The ingredient list is another important part of the label. Ingredients are listed in order so you get an idea of how much of each ingredient is in the food. When something is listed first, second, or third, you know that this food probably contains a lot of it. The food will contain smaller amounts of the ingredients mentioned at the end of the list.

I think you should read the Wiki about it that the name links too.

en.wikipedia.org...

Gives full description of what this is, and with its hook into dopemine production this is highly addictive stuff,


Shhhhh people like Whyhi dont need facts, they are just here to debunk any "conspiracy theory" with extreme prejudice.....

When I worked at the local convenience store a couple of years ago, we were always running low on Mt. Dew. It just flew off the shelves. The customers were always going on about how they had to have their Dew or they couldn't keep going, etc. It doesn't surprise me to find out that it has addictive properties. That said, I used to drink a lot of diet soda(not Mt. Dew) before I had gastric banding. I always felt like I needed my soda. I rarely drank anything else. After not drinking it for a while, I don't have those cravings anymore. Although now I drink Crystal Light which also contains Phenylalanine, but I don't notice myself craving it the same way. I wonder if the effects of carbonation have anything to do with that. Interesting subject that I plan on studying more about. When I worked at the convenience store, we sold a ton of the energy drinks too. It always troubled me when kids would come in to buy them and sometimes I would question them as to whether their parents knew they used them. I, personally, do not allow my kids to drink them and have explained to them how they are like a drug and have no place being freely put into their bodies. Most of the parents were buying them too, so they could see no harm- go figure. And we wonder why our society is so messed up. Just because something is the "in thing", let's just all go do it and fiddle-de-d to the consequences or the motives of the companies producing them. The whole time I worked there, I wondered what kind of conspiracy was involved in pushing high dose caffeine over the counter to a nation of followers. To me, it just stinks of trying to get people hooked on substances that alter your mind and state of being.

uhm, what about carbonated water? We breathe in oxygen and give off carbon dioxide...why on earth would we want to ingest something our bodies give off naturally?

This is, of course, aside from all the chemicals concocted together in a mixture we call soda (among other things)

I was a religious Mt. Dew drinker. I drank it for 20 years at about 6-8 or more cans a day. Thank god that others out there kept speaking out about it until one day it hit me starting with the idea of carbonated water. I am happy to say I'm over 3 years clean from Mt. Dew and those other drugs. Just out of curiosity, I took a sip one day and I almost threw up. Drink the purest water you can find and never look back!

Some pretty awesome info being given here. Thank you all for your contributions to the thread. We all know we have had our food and beverage supplies poisoned for a long time. It is just now getting to the point where we are actually being drugged up and dependencies are being created from it.
