What do Heath
Ledger's death, diet coke
all have in common?
Aspartame is an addictive
excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic drug that interacts
with other drugs and vaccines.
Any questions on the epidemic of autism, ADD, ADHD
and other birth defects?
Heath Ledger was a Diet
Coke drinker, according to reports.
He also suffered from a bipolar symptoms. He was
on Ambien CR and anti-depressants (SSRIs).

Ralph G. Walton, MD,
Medical Director, Safe Harbor Behavioral Health
Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Northeastern
Ohio Universities College of Medicine says:
"The dipeptide component of
the molecule can alter brain chemistry,
significantly changing the ratio of catecholamines
to indolamines, with resultant lowering of seizure
threshold, production of carbohydrate craving and
in vulnerable individuals leading to panic,
depressive and cognitive symptoms."
In one of Dr. Walton's
papers he said further: "The neurochemical impact
of aspartame on the brain is fairly complicated.
Not only does it decrease the availability of the
building block for serotonin (L-tryptophan), but
one of the two amino acids that comprise
aspartame, phenylalanine, is a precursor for
another very important neurotransmitter,
norepinephrine. Papers which I published in 1986
and 1993 discuss what I believe is the clinical
impact (accentuating depressive illness) of
altering the balance between these 2
neurotransmitters (norepinephrine and serotonin).
"There is evidence that the therapeutic effect of
antidepressants can be blocked by
parachlorophenylalanine - a form of phenylalanine-
one of the major constituents of aspartame.
Administration of this substance has also been
associated with aggression and binging."
So, it has certainly
been established aspartame changes brain
chemistry, and interacts with anti-depressants.
The phenylalanine in
aspartame depletes serotonin triggering
bipolar, suicidal tendencies, panic attacks,
paranoia, hallucinations, schizophrenic, mood
swings, insomnia, anxiety, etc.
H. J. Roberts, MD, who
wrote the medical text: "Aspartame Disease:
An Ignored Epidemic" - www.sunsentpress.com
- has chapters on the issue and also goes into
bipolar and the many psychiatric and behavioral
problems. In one paper he reports: "The
phenylalanine in aspartame dissociates from the
ester bond and increases dopamine levels in your
brain. This can lead to symptoms of depression
because it distorts the serotonin/dopamine
balance." He goes into indepth information on all
the components and the mental problems.
Dr. Roberts says aspartame
interacts with all antidepressants. In his
book on page 468/469 he does give some general
considerations as to why aspartame may either
reduce or potentiate drug action by various
mechanisms. A few possibilities are listed:
* Alteration of the blood
proteins to which drugs attach.
* Alteration of drug
receptors on cell membranes.
* Changes in the sites at
which impulses are transmitted along nerves and to
* Metabolic abnormalities
in the elderly that are known to enhance their
vulnerability to drug reactions. This problem
increases in the case of persons taking multiple
drugs (polypharmacy) prescribed by several
* Interference with drug
action by amino acids and protein. An example is
the erratic therapeutic effects when patients with
parkinsonism who were controlled on levodopa began
to use aspartame products. The antagonism of
levodopa by dietary protein presumably reflects
impaired transport from serum across the blood
brain barrier by neutral amino acids.
With regard to
antidepressant drugs he mentions aspartame may
interfere with the action of important drugs used
to treat depression, particularly imipramine (a
tricyclic antidepressant). Further he states the
monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI's), another
group of antidepressant drugs can have additional
adverse effects when aspartame is consumed. These
include phenelzine (Nardil), isocarboxazide
(Marplan) and tranylcypromine (Parnate).
It is pertinent that
hypertensive crises have occurred in patients so
treated after they consumed foods and beverages
containing tyramine and tryptophan. This response
probably represents vasospasm caused by amino
acid-derived sympathomimetic substances such as
norepinephrine and tyramine.
Known Killer Prozac.
With reference to Prozac
he says the serotonin elevating action of
fluoxetine (Prozac) for treatment of depression
could be counteracted by aspartame. It can block
tryptophan entry into the brain, thereby
inhibiting synthesis of serotonin.
James Bowen, M.D., reports:
"Because aspartame in the processes of digestion
and metabolism, forms about ten other known severe
poisonings, and intermediate metabolites, it's
potential for drug related interactions is
is a known destroyer of DNA. The
mitocondrial DNA (MtDNA) is especially damaged,
yielding the present epidemic of disease aspartame
consuming mothers pass on to all future
generations. Aspartame also directly damages the
mitochondria, thus having a "double whammy" effect
on mitochondrial function!
The summation of these many
known severe toxicities and its immune, genetic,
mitochondrial, and metabolic damages, make clear aspartame will not only cause
many diseases, which the Food and Drug
Administration and CDC have already noted but
it has pathways of approach to interact
adversely with every conceivable
So it's very obvious why
Heath Ledger was taking antidepressants, he was
consuming a psycho product that triggers mental
illness and one that has caused an epidemic of
bipolar. Here is Dr. Walton's recent article which
goes into bipolar - www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_and_psychiatric_disorders.htm
Statement issued February
6th 2008 - "Mr Heath Ledger died as the result of
acute intoxication by the combined effects of
oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam,
alprazolam, and doxylamine." - New York medical
A deadly cocktail of
Oxycodone - Percodan, a pain killer.
Hydrocodone - Vicodine, a pain killer.
Diazepam - Valium, anxiety, insomnia, muscle
Temazepam - Strong sedative.
Alprazolam - Xanax, anxiety disorders, panic
Doxylamine - Powerful Antihistamine, sedative.
Wrigley's gum contains aspartame.
Last summer Abby Cormack from New Zealand made
world news when she was poisoned by aspartame from
Wrigley's gum. She was about to be diagnosed with
bipolar when she decided to research her problems
and found www.dorway.com
Here is her story - www.mpwhi.com/abby_cormack_story.htm
Aspartame experts reviewed her medical history and
