in where the intensity and the dwell time define the sweet flavor. Additionally the perception of the nonsingle flavor
this influenced by the genetics, but by the state of health, the aging, the particular experiences, the cultural and
traditional patterns which define the level of dulzura of each individual.

STEVIA FOR THE DIABETICOS,
OF THE ASPARTAME?
of Doctor HJ Roberts Md, concerning the use of products that contain ASPARTAME (Nutrasweet, Sabro, Hermesetas, Sucaril, Menocal) by people with diabetes and hipoglucemia. HJ Roberts,
Md, FACP, FCCP. HJ Roberts, Md, PA. 300 27th Street West Palm Beach, FL 33407-5299 (407)832-2408 Fax (407)832-2400
in the Internal Medicine Council of the United States, it has dealed with several patients with diabetes melitus and hipoglucemia
(low sugar in the blood) in his character about internista advisor-certificate and endocrinólogo member American the Endocrina
both groups have abstained to consume sugar. Initially it considers that those people had an acceptable and presumable security
in the use of the substitute aspartame.
in my it practices several patients, and other sights in consultation, developed serious metabolic, neurological complications
that specifically can be attributed to the use of the products that contains aspartame. The evidences are these:
The lost one of the diabetic control, intensification of hipoglucemia, the presence of insulin reactions (including convulsions)
prove the reactions of aspartame, and the precipitation, agravamiento or simulation of the diabetic complications (specially
blurred Vista and neuropatía) while these products are used.
Dramatic development of these symptoms before the rejection to aspartame, and the quick recurrence of these problems when
the patient reassumes the use of products with aspartame, with knowledge or of inadvertent form. I have mentioned several
complications in patients with diabetes and hipoglucemia caused by the use of products with aspartame, in my scientific books
and articles. There are some illustrations here.
dependent professor of the insulin by 21 years as much undergoes more frequent reactions by the insulin in the school as in
the house, whereas he daily ingests several refreshments of tail with aspartame: He reported that when I let consume aspartame,
I let have several reactions. A man with diabetes underwent severe changes in the Vista when consuming 4 liters of aspartame
in slight drinks: An ophtalmologist assured that diabetic retinopatía was not detected to him.
patient later had opportunity to read an article about the problems in the Vista caused by aspartame. Immediately it rejected
these drinks, and the disagreeable problem was in diabetes and primary retinopatía.
dependent man of 46 years of the insulin by diabetes stayed in good control during three decades until he began to consume,
to newspaper, great amount of soda waters with aspartame and you exceed of table with endulzante. He synthesizes his experience
in these terms: My diabetes was increased and I had terrible insulin reactions: Their diabetes was controlled completely when
during one week I let consume products with aspartame.
boy of 12 years with diabetes required of multiple hospitalizations by a diabetic coma acquired by the considerable product
consumption with aspartame. Specialists of a university hospital had difficulties to stabilize their insulin requirements
while she consumed those products.
this experience, I warned to all my patients with diabetes and hipoglicemia to avoid products with aspartame. A good number
of alternatives is available.
considered that the fault in other specialists of the American Association of the Diabetes is to spread to the appropriate
prevention to the patients and consumers based on the repetition of which has described in my studies and publications: this
is according to the following factors:
That virtually impossible to take programs from the national meetings of specialists in diabetes or other professional groups
to describe these observations: IT EVEN ACCEPTS it (of that I was member for more than three decades) were refused to publish
an extract of warnings of the adverse reactions that I detected in 58 diabetic patients and who were admitted in their annual
meeting of 1987.
extract later appeared in the Clinical Encyclopedia (Vol 3: 489A, 1988)... for six years.
Publications dedicated to the diabetes and the internal medicine were refused to publish my manuscripts with this objective
commentd out negative: similarly authorities with servilistas interests have refused to publish the described suggestions.
the MASTER, FDA and ACCEPT it dogmatically continue expressing opinions you mistake in the sense that aspartame is safe for
(Companies) Manufacturing and producing they highly created the miracle in the market during years 80 with the effective campaign
of the PR, a indescriptible number of projects by investigators whom they loved to contract itself with them, and an enormous
biopolitica to his you order to protect its market of trillions of dollars.
have detailed these subjects in my two books on the subject: Aspartame (Nutrasweet): It Is safe? (Philadelphia, 1989, The
Charles Press) and Sweetner Dearest: Bittersweet Vignettes About Aspartame (Nutrasweet) (West Palm Beach, 19992, Sunshine
Sentinel Press, PO Box 8697, 1-800-814-9800). Estan seeded in two cassettes of reading, Is Aspartame (Nutrasweet) Safe? To
Medical Helth to legal Overview (West Palm Beach, 1992, Sunshine Sentinel Press, PO Box 8697, 1-800-814-9800).
these books I have discussed some of the reasons because aspartame aggravates the diabetes and hipoglucemia. The possible
mechanisms include the following thing:
Noticeable changes in the appetite and weight are reflected in the paradoxical lost obtaining or of weight
Excessive lost insulin secretion and of the insulin reserves
Possible alteration of the sites of receiving insulin cells, with unusual resistance to the insulin.
Alterations neurotransmitidas within the brain and peripheral nerves.
The toxicity of each one of the three components of aspartame (Fenilalina, aspártico acid and to methylester, with properties
of metilico alcohol or methanol), or its multiple products after the exhibition to the heat or prolonged storage.
I have disertado in my publications, and testimonies before the Congress and the group of the FDA, that the recurrent product
ingestion with aspartame of more than half of the adult population constitutes an imminent case of public health, even so,
this continuous call being ignored by the medica profession of the FDA.
to inform to the consumers interested in the criticizeable complex doctor-industrialist who: 1) they reject to know the problem
deficiencies by aspartame and 2) they failed in alerting to the groups of high risk of the potential dangers. Additionally
to the patients with diabetes and hipoglucemia, that includes embarrassed women, young, patient with epilepsy, deficiencies
of the liver and the kidneys, and you disorder nutritional, adult people with lost of the memory, and the relative ones to
the reactors of aspartame, diabetics and patients with fenylketonuria.
will ask of guessed right way: Because aspartame continuous in the market? Its interest intensifies by the high incidence
of tumors in the animal brain (that knew itself before the approval of the FDA), and the reasonable observation that I have
documented about the apparent contribution of the roll of aspartame in the tumors of the human brain ".
