Aspartame and Diabetes: Dr. H. J. Robertswww.healthy-holistic-living.com/aspartame-
Let’s let the experts tell us if we should be concerned about aspartame and diabetes:
According to research conducted by H.J. Roberts, a diabetes specialist, a member of the ADA, and an authority on artificial sweeteners, Aspartame:
1) Leads to the precipitation of clinical diabetes.
2) Causes poorer diabetic control in diabetics on insulin or oral drugs.
3) Leads to the aggravation of diabetic complications such as retinopathy, cataracts, neuropathy and gastroparesis.
4) Causes convulsions.
In a statement concerning the use of products containing aspartame by persons with diabetes and hypoglycemia, Roberts says: "Unfortunately, many patients in my practice, and others seen in consultation, developed serious metabolic, neurological and other complications that could be specifically attributed to using Aspartame products.
This was evidenced by:
"The loss of diabetic control, the intensification of hypoglycemia, the occurrence of presumed 'insulin reactions' (including convulsions) that proved to be Aspartame reactions, and the precipitation, aggravation or simulation of diabetic complications (especially impaired vision and neuropathy) while using these products."
"Dramatic improvement of such features after avoiding Aspartame, and the prompt predictable recurrence of these problems when the patient resumed aspartame products."
Roberts goes on to say:
"I regret the failure of other physicians and the American Diabetes Association (ADA) to sound appropriate warnings to patients and consumers based on these repeated findings which have been described in my corporate-neutral studies and publications."
Dr. Roberts realized Aspartame was a poison when it was approved because his diabetic patients began going blind, being confused and their blood sugar could not be controlled. He testified before Congress and in his first press conference said that if something was not done then in 5 or 10 years we would have a global plague on our hands. Indeed, it was Dr. Roberts who declared aspartame disease to be a global epidemic and published the 1038 page medical text on it: Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic.
