Michael Fox, Star of Spin City, Family Ties and many movies, suffers from Parkinson's
Disease and once asked how a 30 year old man would get this old man's disease.
Michael Fox has also been a Diet Pepsi spokesman and informants say he is addicted
drinking many a day. Aspartame/NutraSweet that is in Diet Pepsi is a neurotoxin
that triggers neurodegenerative diseases, and can precipitate Parkinson's. Fox
has been going downhill because of the wild movements and writhing he's been
suffering. He is unable to control his body. Aspartame, in reality a drug, also
interacts with other drugs and changes the dopamine of the brain. There is no
way for Michael to improve until someone gets him off the Diet Pepsi.
Dr. James Bowen says: "Many NutraSweet victims report parkinsonian symptoms.
This should be no surprise because every biochemical component of the aspartame
molecule is implicated in producing Parkinsonian structural damage and creating
a biochemical basis for parkinsonian symptoms. Aspartame is a source of methanol
alcohol. Experts in neurodegenerative disease from alcoholism recognize that
methyl alcohol is the component of beverage alcohol that causes neurodegenerative
disease in Parkinson's Disease in Parkinson's Disease in alcoholics. Beverage
alcohol is grain alcohol or ethyl alcohol. However, methyl alcohol is also present
in very small amounts, although present only in trace amounts in alcoholic beverages.
It is the factor that produces the neurodegeneration. Methyl alcohol accomplishes
this even though the ethyl alcohol serves as a protective factor. Aspartame
on the other hand affords no such protection and the structural components of
the molecule are so arranged that the methyl alcohol from aspartame is probably
500 to 5000 times more active in producing toxicity than it would be alone.
The structural damage in the basal areas of the brain where Parkinson Disease
structural damage occurs from the dicarboxylic amino acid neuroexcitotoxins
is a problem long recognized. So aspartic acid even in and by itself is a recognized
source of the damage to the basal ganglia where Parkinson's Disease degeneration
occurs. As in the casae with methyl alcohol the molecular structure of the aspartame
molecule probably makes the aspartic acid damage from aspartame 5000 times more
potent than from free aspartic acid on a mg. per mg. basis. The brain with loss
of neural tissue to produce the dopamine, a neurotransmitter necessary to let
the brain circuitry function normally is no longer producing dopamine in sufficient
amounts in these structures. The metabolic impact of the phenylalanine isolate
from aspartame is to remarkably decrease dopamine production thus making Parkinson
symptoms much worse.
The phenylalanine isolate out competes all other amino acids at enzyme sites
in the brain. This includes the decarboxylase enzyme sites. Therefore, the amino
acid tyrosine is not decarboxylated to tramine which is the first step in producing
dopamine in the brain. Therefore, the brain dopamine levels plummet remarkably.
Michael Fox has reportedly used L-Dopa to try and increase his dopamine levels.
The use of aspartame completely defeats this therapeutic endeavor. Not to mention
the fact that it caused the degenerative disease called Parkinson's Disease
in the first place. The destructive process will continue as long as he uses
it. " James Bowen, M.D. _____
Somebody please get this message to Michael Fox. There are doctors in another
country who have produced a product that could give you 90% improvement in Parkinson's
Disease once you're off NutraSweet. I have his number, Michael. I'm waiting
