Diet Pepsi is Ditching Aspartame

pepsi

Rapidly falling sales have prompted PepsiCo to reforumalate the diet version of its flagship product. Starting in August, all diet Pepsi varieties will no longer have aspartame, the widely unpopular artificial sweetner also known by the names Equal and NutraSweet.

Pepsi vice president Seth Kaufman called it the “No. 1 reason consumers are dropping diet soda”-a likely claim since, at 22 percent, aspartame’s popularity is even lower than that of Congress, according to one measurement. Read more.

  1. The full article, at http://finance.yahoo.com/news/diet-pepsi-dropping-aspartame-customer-140544806.html, states: “aspartame, known by the brand names Equal and NutraSweet, is ‘one of the most exhaustively studied substances in the human food supply, with more than 100 studies supporting its safety.'”

    THIS IS ONE HUGE HORRENDOUS LIE!!!!!!!!

    Oh yes, numerous studies have been done on aspartame, but they indicated everything of THE EXACT OPPOSITE of its (supposed) “safety”!

  2. Coke and Pepsi knew from the beginning that aspartame was a poison because they are the two main officials of the National Soft Drink Assn, now American Beverage, that protested about it being unsafe. Here is that protest from the congressional record: http://www.mpwhi.com/open_letter_dick_adamson.htm You can go to http://www.mpwhi.com and read the congressional records and resources with all the medical texts on aspartame like “Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic” by H. J. Roberts, M.D., http://www.sunsentpress.com 1000 pages of diseases and symptoms triggered by this addictive, excitoneurotoxic, carcinogenic, genetically engineered drug and adjuvant that damages the mitochondria and interacts with drugs and vaccines. The manufacturers own teratology studies showed neural tube defects – autism, spina bifida and cleft palate for starters and then made a deal with the FDA to seal them and not let the public know. It has caused an epidemic of birth defects throughtout the world. Dr. Ralph Walton is now doing a birth defect study for anyone who has given birth since 1984. See it on my web site and complete form. Be sure to read the UPI 8 month investigation with all the fraud exposed in the approval process.

    Also email me for the Aspartame Resource Guide about these 3 sweeteners from my web site. Using sucralose is like consuming chlorine. Get the facts. They could use something safe like “Just Like Sugar” , http://www.justlikesugarinc.com which has no chemicals at all, only organic food.

  3. Aspertame is safe if you believe in science! If you believe unqualified fairytale pushers like mercola Then, anything that equals a big word equals scary!

  4. (continuation of my previous comments)

    For a good start on the subject, examine the long essay at http://www.mercola.com/article/aspartame/fda.htm that relates the history of the FDA’s approval of Aspartame in the 1970’s and 1980’s.

    Noted there are key studies on Aspartame that were performed at the Washington University Medical School and at the University of Wisconsin. These showed frightening Aspartame effects like HOLES that formed in the brains of mice and monkeys that experienced epileptic seizures.

    Further reported there is that when submitting their applications (for approval of Aspartame) to the FDA, the developers of Aspartame, the G. D. Searle Company, left out many of those test results that showed problems with their product; they also removed (and hid) Yenem Machla tumors that had developed in tested animals. (See the complex details of the story in the full narration there.)

    See further realization of these serious problems with Aspartame at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8939194.

  5. It’s in many drinks. So sounds like it’s very popular.

    In any case, based on the “data” quoted above, we should keep the aspartame and get rid of Congress.

  6. The full article of this story (mentioned above) reveals that instead of using Aspartame, PepsiCo is now going to use the other big artificial sweetener, Splenda.

    The real truth though, is that as severely terrible as Aspartame is, Splenda is probably much worse.

    A number of years ago, when Splenda was first marketed, advertisements for it stated:

    “SPLENDA TASTES LIKE SUGAR, BECUASE IT IS HALF SUGAR!”

    So a person seeing that will think that in a spoonful of Splenda, half of the powd
    er is really regular sugar while the other half of the powder is this new substance called Splenda.
    The truth is totally different, as this line: “Splenda tastes . . .” is one of the very most nauseating lies and deceptions ever promoted. Splenda is NOT sugar!! It is not one half sugar; it is not one quarter sugar; it is not one third sugar; it is not one tenth sugar!! It has absolutely nothing to do with sugar!!

    The only connection that it has to sugar is that it STARTS OUT as sugar. The way that Splenda is made is that a sugar molecule is taken and put through a complex process using a long list of highly toxic chemicals. This process causes a large part of the sugar molecule to break off. So already, this broken (what was before a) sugar molecule is now no longer a sugar molecule!

    This chemical process further forces atoms of chlorine, itself a strong poison, to bind to this broken molecule, taking the place of the parts that had broken off. This newly formed molecule is now obviously something that is totally different from the previous sugar molecule. It is obviously NOT sugar; instead, it is a newly created chemical that is in the catagory of “chlorocarbons,” having the same chemical structure as some of the most deadly insecticides like Chlorodane, Lindane and DDT.

  8. If you belive in medical research and real doctors aspartame is 100% safe! If you believe in pseudoscience and the pseudoscience promoters like mercola anything that is a big scary word is going to destroy the world!

  9. “Letuslookattgefacts” how about looking at medical research from medical reasearch papers and not pseudoscience blogs then tell me what you have learned!
    This pseudoscience should not be allowd to make inroads into the jewish community. Vaccines dont causd autism,sweeteners approved by the fda dont cause cancer etc.

  11. To “Dr. Betty Martini, D.Huim” in Comment #6:

    A Groisser Yasher Koach – Thank You Very, Very Much for giving Matzav readers these several key facts about the problem and the sources for further information.

  12. To “the real truth” in Comment #7, to “commen sense based in reality!” in Comment #12, and to “emesdik” in Comments #13 and #14:

    Can you please show here the web address of even just ONE (so-called) “science” paper or “medical research paper” that PROVES Aspartame and Splenda as being 100% fully “safe”???

    Furthermore, instead of your Sinas Chinam – instead of your blanket hatred of any person who “dares” to try to show serious problems that do exist with certain things that are being done in the world, can you please actually show and prove exactly HOW that person is wrong???

    Yes, can you please show and prove exactly how Dr. Mercola is wrong? What are you saying? Are you saying that there never were these studies on Aspartame done at Washington University Medical School and the University of Wisconsin? Are you saying that there never were mice that had (from Aspartame) holes in their brains? Are you saying that there never were monkeys who had (from Aspartame) Epileptic Seizures? Are you saying that the the officials at the G. D. Searle company were all lily white Tzadikim who did not hide negative test results?

    Yes, can you please show and prove exactly how Dr. Bowen and Dr. Hull are wrong??? What are you saying? Are you saying that Splenda is not made this way? Are you saying that Splenda DOES contain pieces of pure, untouched, and unchanged regular sugar? Are you saying that Splenda is NOT a chlorocarbon? Are you saying that insecticides like Chlorodane and DDT are completely “good,” “healthy,” and “harmless” items?
