The mass media lies continue with New York Times, while aspartame grows into a plague

New York Times newspaper lies (2)
The mainstream media in the U.S. has always taken resort to lies and cover-ups in order to safeguard the atrocities of the government and multinational corporations. A project named Times Watch initiated by Media Research Center has been tracking the news published in the much revered The New York Times for the last 10 years and has come to the conclusion that a large number of news articles published in the newspaper were outright lies and journalistic fabrications that perfectly breached public trust. Right from distorting the statements made by the president to copying from other newspapers, the Times has done them all, reports Natural News.

However, it would be inappropriate to think that the lies are the newspaper’s own initiatives. The New York Times has revealed that almost all the stories that are published in the mainstream media are devised by the White House. The malpractice of the mainstream media may not be surprising to many but it is the first time that one of the most important media houses in America has admitted the truth in such a candid manner. The complete story is at http://www.naturalnews.com/036609_mainstream_media_White_House_influence.html#ixzz2Qj0uuMPI .

It is due to this role of the mainstream media that real problems go unreported. Take for example, the issue of aspartame horror. No mainstream media has (so far) shown the willingness to report on the harmful effects of aspartame, the artificial sweetener that is used in almost all packaged foods nowadays. Thanks to Donald Rumsfeld and G.D. Pharmaceuticals this well known carcinogen is now infesting human bodies across the planet. There are many side effects of aspartame including irregularity in heart rhythm, psychiatric problems and even diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, reports Natural News. But there is no initiative from the media to make people aware of this. Visit http://www.naturalnews.com/026849_aspartame_drug_diet.html to know more.

  1. John E. Garst, Ph.D. (Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmacology, Toxicology, and Nutrition) says:

    You need to start reading the real literature, not the sensationalist press you cite. The truth is that formate and formaldehyde formed from aspartame’s methanol pose little risk at the doses involved; note that these substances are [quoting another] “produced in the body during the endogenous demethylation of many compounds, including many foods [fruit juices] and drugs. For example, the demethylation of the caffeine found in one cup of coffee produces 30 mg of formaldehyde (Imbus, 1988). Formaldehyde is essential in one-carbon pool intermediary metabolism. The metabolite of formaldehyde, formic acid, is a substrate for purine nucleotide synthesis (Sheehan and Tully, 1983). It can be calculated that more than 50,000 mg [that’s 50 g] of formaldehyde is produced and metabolized in an adult human body daily and that an adult human liver will metabolize 22 mg of formaldehyde per minute (Clary and Sullivan, 1999). Consequently, it is quite clear that the formaldehyde from aspartame provides a trivial contribution to total formaldehyde exposure and metabolism in the body” (p 18 in and refs from http://www.fte.ugent.be/vlaz/Magnuson2007.pdf).

    Clearly from the above any issue with aspartame is a purely PERSONAL issue. ALL issues with aspartame can be explained by PERSONAL matters like folate deficiency and corollary issues (both known and some likely yet unknown) like genetic folate enzyme issues (polymorphisms, Wikipedia: methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase), B12 deficiency (often vegetarian-related), (genetic) methionine synthase enzyme issues, and/or (genetic) homocysteine accrual. Folate, B12, and homocysteine are all functionally interrelated (see the metabolism of folic acid http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin_B12). All involve not just the normal, natural recycling of otherwise essential formaldehyde and formate produced from methanol into methyl groups, but the availability of these methyl groups regulate vital-to-life (DNA) itself. Ethanol (primarily through its antagonist metabolite acetaldehyde) is also known inhibitor of these vital folate reactions. So in these borderline cases of aspartame sensitivity, alcohol consumption may be a prime factor explaining any increased sensitivity to aspartame as well. Realize ethanol, not methanol, is the cause of fetal alcohol syndrome, and ethanol is a documented factor in facilitating many cancer types, for example for example http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22218157, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16508294 and this popular press story: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-204_162-57569649/alcohol-causes-20000-cancer-deaths-in-the-u.s-annually/.

    Critics suggest aspartame causes about every ill effect known to man claiming some 92+ symptoms. Analysis of these, however, directly links every issue to the above described personal issues. In what I have written above I note that various folate, B12 and related issues better explain any problems with aspartame. This year’s Norwegian autism study, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23403681, only confirms the current importance of the deficiency issue, but those results may also reflect the fact that most of Europe still has not mandated folate fortification. This isn’t particularly surprising both in view of methanol’s requirement for folate for metabolism, but also because folate uptake into brain has been linked to childhood autism, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23314536.

    As another example consider aspartame’s most widely reported issue, migraine headaches. Migraines have been linked directly to the MTHFR C677T folate polymorphism (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19619240 and http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19384265). Both papers report complete resolution of these migraines with added folate alone. These investigations revealed that more than the normal daily recommended amounts are needed (2+ mg), but in these papers increased folate doses ALONE solved the migraine problem [and aspartame was not even involved]. That alone suggests a human sub-population that is even more deficient in folate for which resolution of their symptoms requires even more folate. And that is confirmed by science; up to 40% of some populations have these genetic folate polymorphisms that require even more folate, but most don’t even know it.

    Finally, I note that anything about aspartame (pro or con) published before 1998, when folate fortification was mandated, is suspect, because of folate issues and anything more recent about aspartame that lacks folate controls is equally questionable. This includes the original FDA arguments against its safety–they didn’t know about folate then either.

    • no, my friend, you are wrong. aspartame is poison for the human body. nice try though.

    • aspartame fks up the central nervous system. it’s the excrement of e.coli. nice try Garst!! defend anything any scientist makes in a lab cause you’re a science nerd. I bet you like extra mercury in your flu shots and extra sodium fluoride in your tap water. you’re a liar and you’re boring. bye.
