Link Between Excitotoxins and Cancer

Excitotoxin food additives have also been connected to cancer growth, invasion, and spread. This was first discovered with a form of malignant brain tumors called glioblastoma multiforme.

Researchers showed that elevated glutamate in the vicinity of a tumor stimulated it to invade the surrounding brain, and result in death much more quickly than normal.

Research has also discovered that many cancers — including lung, breast, prostate, colon, and melanoma — have glutamate receptors. Those with more receptors resulted in a much worse prognosis.

For example, in a study of people with oral cancers, those with the highest number of glutamate receptors had larger tumors, higher rates of metastasis, and a much poorer prognosis.

There is growing evidence that the artificial sweetener aspartame is one of the most dangerous food additives ever produced.

Studies have linked its consumption with significant increases in numerous cancers (especially brain cancer), degenerative brain disorders, progression of multiple sclerosis, depression, suicide, obesity, headaches, and seizures.

Few people are aware of a study conducted by aspartame’s original manufacturer in 1976, demonstrating a connection between the sweetener and atrophy (shrinkage) of the testes.

In that study, aspartame was fed to mice in low, medium, and high doses. All three doses led to shrinkage of the testes, but it was much more severe at higher doses.

No one has bothered to test humans to see whether they suffer from the same effects.

When aspartame was first approved, regulators said consumption should be limited to two cans of soda a day for safety. They have since revised the amount to about 17 cans a day for adults, without any new evidence to support this change in safety policy.

So many foods, medicines, and drinks are now sweetened with aspartame that it is not uncommon for individuals to consume far more than the concentration limit for harmful
