Artificial Sweetener Disease or ASD in simple terms, is getting attention in the US by affecting thousands of consumers. However, medical practitioners are downplaying the effects for business purposes – income from several check-ups and expensive pharmaceutical drugs.

Medical people will call the effects of ASD as arthritis flare ups, recurring headaches, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), muscle pain, migraines, depression, buzzing noise in the ears, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, anxiety, inflammation, Crohn’s disease and acid reflux. They will not tell patients that what they are suffering is ASD because most consumers might stop consumption of synthetic sweeteners, keeping the doctor away.

The signs and symptoms of ASD can manifest overnight depending on the amount of chemical sweetener consumed as well as the type. There are some combinations of these chemical substances that are very toxic. Consumers can experience migraine, headache, vomiting, vision problems as well as stomach upset. Few cases of disorders of central nervous system, nervous twitches, abnormal reflexes and cramping occur.

The disease was identified when Ronald Reagan took presidency in 1980. The president immediately fired the FDA head since Donald Rumsfeld, who is the Searle Pharmaceutical’s CEO at the time advised the president and then hired Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes, Jr. as the replacement. The new FDA head approved aspartame. This was the years of craze in diets and Rumsfeld made fortune from artificial sweetener. These chemicals were long banned because of its carcinogenic properties. On a different time, FDA also approved other artificial sweetener such as sucralose (1991) and sorbitol (2003).

Gulf War Syndrome is mainly the ASD!

Cases of fibromyalgia hit American troops in the course of Gulf War. Several studies showed that the possible cause is the diet sodas that the troops drank in the 120 degree F condition. The government named it the “Gulf War Syndrome”, nevertheless, this is the same health issue afflicting American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Approximately 4 out of 5 women experience fibromyalgia cases. These are women likely to consume diet foods drinks. In addition, almost every known chewing gum and mints have artificial sweeteners.
Those who say that there are not sufficient amount of artificial sweeteners in a product that can cause health issues is telling a lie because there are chemical sweeteners in more than 25% of food and drink, including gums and candy. These chemical sweeteners are cumulative and could result to ASD.

No drug is made to cure ASD. More than 70% of the cases of reported fibromyalgia, IBS, acid reflux and chronic depression are caused by these chemicals through consumption.

ASD is the short-term consequence of too much consumption of artificial sweeteners. This is a serious health concern. The use of prescription drugs agitates more bad side effects or worst.

Fortunately, the cure for ASD is free and does not need a doctor’s prescription. It is not too late to avoid artificial sweeteners by pulling out foods, drinks and other treats with labels of sugar-free, diet, light and zero. Read the ingredient of the foods and drinks. If you find aspartic acid, sucralose, aspartame, acesulfame-k, saccharine and sorbitol, do not buy or consume it. Increase your consumption of fresh and organic vegetables, fruits. Consult a nutritionist so that you can be informed of the right foods and drinks to consume.
