Who Is to Blame. Doctors or the Food Standards Agency

My name is Anna Robb and I wrote an article on orthomolecular pharmacology that centre's on the artificifial sweetener Aspartame. When in my research I discovered aspartame requires the protease (enzyme) known as pepsin to break down or else it remains whole in the dopamine pathways of the body. Over years to decades of ingestion it builds up to which amplifyies the effect of neurotransmitter dopamine causing most of the side effects that you experience but do not attriubute to the drink you have been ingesting for so long. Ooops to the FSA for forgetting to run that little in-vitro test on aspartame and pepsin.

Further to that! Medications that increase extracellular serotonin, which some of you may know as SSRI's (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors)are known to hijack these dopamine pathways. What then happens? Well any unmetabolized aspartame then gets bundled out to the digestive tract where you break it down if you have any pepsin activity. Whilst it is rare to have pepsin activity in the state of depression it is not so rare for others, you know them as children. Oops pharmaccovigilence service (the services emplyed to licence all medications imposed onto us. Blood is on your hands for the induced suicial state of mind imposed on these individuals which is due to nothing but your incompetence!

Did your pharmacovigilence service not notice that symptoms of methanol are dimished for children taking SSRI's due to having fourty fold the glutathione which causes methanol to metabolise to less harmfull formate salt instead of undergo assimilation? No, they just buried their heads in the sand.

How have the great people at the Food Standards Agency handled this dilemma that they caused? They both resigned. Yes Catherine Brown of the FSA and Sue Davies of EFSA, enjoy retirement.

Please give a tinker to Tesco whom a fortnight ago was seen swapping all their aspartame filled beverages for one's containing sucralose. BRAVO!

Now that's Morrisons, Lidl, Asda, Sainsburys, Tesco all sneaking aspartame out the back door. Kind Regards. Murderers.

To Coca-Cola and Pepsi, the last to act. Get your poison off the shelves you incompetent muderders. You have the data sent to you, now take responsibiity for your actions.

More to follow.

Can you explain more? Are you claiming that aspartame caused depression? Are you saying it causes depression in later life if injested as children?

user1488607792 Sat 04-Mar-17 06:38:35

I am saying that in it's unmetabolized state aspartame causes increased cortisol and dopamine dysyfunction which are contributing factors in mental illness. When one takes a medication which purges large amounts of this substance to a stomach that contains activity of the enzyme required to break it down, the result is large amounts of phenylalanine which wipes out any serotonin that indivual still had left and large amounts of aspartic acid which induce exicitoxicity and null the effects of a neurotransmitter known as GABA (gamma-Aminobutyric acid). The result is a suicial state of mind.

I'm interested but confused. confused

I've been drinking (on average) around 2 litres of Pepsi Max (containing aspartame) daily for around 10+ years. (I know! blush)

Are you saying I should be suicidal (I'm not)?

FormerlyFrikadela01 Sat 04-Mar-17 06:59:43

I confess to not knowing very much about this kind of thing however according to the ops Twitter she spent 6 months vomiting formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, yet is worried about an artificial sweetener that's been tested to within an inch of it's life. hmm

Pepsi Max was my beverage of choice also. I too was not suicidal as I was not breaking the aspartame down. However if a medication is taken under a scenario which causes aspartame to be broken down in extremely large doses, this can be the case.

The cause of aspartame accumulation induced by pepsin inactivity is a very common but quite unheard of genetic condition called Methylenetetrahydrofolatereductase and you may not have it. The "treatment" for this contains a specialist supplement called methyl folate (the active form of vitamin B9), this induces instant pepsin activity, and instant aspartame breakdown for whatever is in the stomach. Many have avoided this supplement as it causes instant sickness, depression and a psychotic state of mind.

I'm going to get in early with the mumsnet gem-the plural of anecdote is not data.

AspartameVictim84 Sat 04-Mar-17 07:10:26

This is very true it has been tested an awful lot. However the parameters of the studies, which I have read in detail have not been based on variances in the activity of the enzyme pepsin and the genetic polymorphism called Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase. It would be very rare for a study to exibit a negative response without the knowledge of pepsin acitivty and accumulation. Most studies are simply not run for enough time. Would the supermarkets really be pulling the product for a more expersive, poor tasting alternative if it was that safe. I'm afraid not.

Is this a joke?

ArgyMargy Sat 04-Mar-17 07:23:22

I'm generally not a spelling/grammar policewoman but if you're going to do a piece that claims to be scientific, you really should pay attention to writing correctly. Otherwise you risk being dismissed as incompetent and your points are lost.

Can you elaborate on what you claim Tesco is doing? I feel like I'd have noticed if they'd delisted Diet Pepsi, Diet Coke, Pepsi Max, etc?

OnlyEatsToast Sat 04-Mar-17 14:57:28

Sorry don't think you fully grasp the science here.

OnlyEatsToast Sat 04-Mar-17 15:02:55

OP you have a very sensationalist style of writing and I'm sensing no actual background in science. Writing 'an article' suggest to me journo?

honeysucklejasmine Sat 04-Mar-17 15:07:02

Where's your article published please? is it written with more clarity than your op?
