    Artificial Sweeteners and MS

    AspartameThere are claims that artificial sweeteners could cause symptoms which mimic Ms. Nancy Markle, an American health expert, claims that Aspartame is dangerous.

    When the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. The methanol toxicity mimics multiple sclerosis - people were being diagnosed with MS in error. What they have is Aspartame Disease.

    Aspartame is found in many diet drinks, such as Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi. It is thought to be in as many as 100 diet products. If those incorrectly diagnosed with MS come off diet drinks, most of the symptoms disappear, claims Nancy.

    Concerns have been reported about the safety of the artificial sweetener Aspartame.

    Side-effects reported to American health authorities include headaches, skin and stomach disorders, impaired vision, depression, carbohydrate cravings, panic attacks, an irregular heartbeat and seizures.

    The manufacturers claim that all the constituents of Aspartame are found at higher levels in natural drinks like tomato juice and milk, and that 'all the good scientific data shows it is safe.'
