Is Cameron Diaz promoting smoking?

Thu, March 6, 2014 11:54pm UTC by 3 Comments

The Hollywood actor has irked anti-smoking charities after confessing at a chat show that ‘one cigarette once in a while is not going to kill you’

Cameron Diaz left the critics fuming after claiming that cigarettes were healthier than diet coke. The 41-year-old star used to smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day and quit when she feared it was setting a bad example, reports mirror.uk.

“I think one cigarette once in a while is not going to kill you. Diet Coke is bad news. I’d rather just drink sugar. It’s better for you,” she said on the chat show.

“Diaz is deluding herself. One cigarette might not kill you, but before you know it you’re smoking five a day and that’s all that’s needed to give you cancer,” said her book promoter, Chelsea.

The beverage Institute for Health and Wellness defended themselves by saying that they have confirmed that the use of artificial sweeteners “aspartame”, which is present in diet coke, does not cause health problems.

    Ralph Walton, M.D. does study on aspartame and birth defects

    Aspartame, AKA NutraSweet, Equal, E951 and under numerous other aliases is an addictive excitoneurotoxic carcinogen masquerading as an additive. The chemical liberates methyl alcohol, (methanol} the deadliest of the alcohols, commonly known as wood alcohol. Its so toxic a single ounce can kill or blind an adult, and its a cumulative poison that alters the dopamine system of the brain creating addiction. The methanol, CH4O, loses two hydrogens to become CH2O, formaldehyde, which is next metabolized to create CH2O2, formic acid: fire-ant venom. But thats just the beginning.

    Half of aspartame is phenylalanine, which floods the brain, a neurotoxin, lowering the seizure threshold. It depletes serotonin triggering psychiatric and behavioral problems and interacts with all drugs and vaccines. http://www.wnho.net/aspartame_interacts.htm Today our children are medicated instead of educated.
    .
    Dr.Louis Elsas, an eminent Pediatric Professor, Genetics, told Congress on 11/3/87 he had spent 25 years in the biomedical sciences “trying to prevent mental retardation and birth defects caused by excess phenylalanine. And herein lies my basic concern, that aspartame is in fact a well known neurotoxin and teratogen which, in some as yet undefined dose, will both reversibly in the adult and irreversibly in the developing child or fetal brain, produce adverse effects.”

    The third component is aspartic acid, a powerful neurotransmitter that excites the brains neurons into hyperactivity until they exhaust and die. So there you have it, a bouquet of brain and neurological destroyers packed in little blue envelopes, sitting on every restaurant table in the western world, harvesting enough money to buy whatever bureaucratic blessings are necessary to kill us.
    Aspartame produces the deadly brain tumor agent diketopiperazine. Such malignancies now sprout like mushrooms across America. In original studies it also triggered uterine, ovarian, pancreatic, thyroid and testicular tumors. The 3-year Italian Ramazzini Study on 1,800 rats confirmed original FDA findings that this chemical is a multipotential carcinogen causing leukemia, lymphoma, cancer of the kidney and peripheral nerves. Only rats fed aspartame developed malignant brain tumors. It was peer reviewed by 7 world experts. This excellent research was exceptional in that it did not kill the rats at the customary 24 months, but allowed them to die naturally. Cancer is a disease common to the final third of life.

    Said Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock M.D., author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, “The new study released in the European Journal of Oncology by Morando Soffritti and co-workers should terrify mothers and all those consuming aspartame sweetened products. This was a carefully done study, which clearly demonstrated a statistically significant increase in several types of lymphomas and leukemias in rats. Both of these malignancies have increased significantly in this country since the widespread use of aspartame.
    “This study confirmed the previous study by Dr. Trocho and co-workers, which also found the formaldehyde from aspartame to be damaging to cellular DNA and that this damage was accumulative.
    The type of damage was a duplicate of that associated with cancers. Along with this most recent study, this means that drinking a single diet cola sweetened with aspartame every day could increase one’s risk of developing a lymphoma or leukemia.

    Two more cancer studies by Dr. Morando Soffritti of the Ramazzini Institute showed aspartame causes even more cancers and if the mother is pregnant and the child survives it can grow up to cancer. Even a Harvard Study showed cancer.

    An army of renowned MDs and researchers have verified the cry of alarm, one deliberately smothered by the heartless monsters making and selling the poison
    Aspartame destroys families. Its an endocrine disrupting agent, stimulates prolactin, changes the menses and causes infertility. Women who desperately want children throng fertility clinics sipping Diet Coke, the reason theyre there. Dr. Madelon Price, Biochemist, explains this infertility: “I was concerned about aspartic acid, one of the major breakdown products. Aspartic acid, like glutamic acid (mono sodium glutamate, MSG, Accent) readily passes from the blood into the circumventricular organs of the brain. sexual dysfunction is associated with aspartame and MSG. If enough arcuate neurons are lost, that dysfunction is irreversible. Rodents that ingest high levels of aspartate or glutamate when young become infertile adults.”
    So many parents never have the children they long for because aspartame is peddled without even the decency of a warning. But let’s say the woman stops using it for a time and does get pregnant. Dr. James Bowen says, “At every point in the fertility process aspartame destroys, beginning with the gleam in Mom and Pop’s eyes: it ruins female sexual response and induces male sexual dysfunction. Beyond this, aspartame disrupts fetal development by aborting it or inducing defects. And if a live child is born aspartame may have heinously damaged the DNA of the baby, cursing future generations.”

    Today is now been found out that aspartame causes neural tube defects: translation autism, spina bifida, cleft palate, etc. The FDA made a deal with G. D. Searle never to allow the public to know about the teratology studies. This is discussed in the book, While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills by Dr. Woodrow Monte. You can read the last chapter on autism free on his web site, http://www.whilesciencesleeps.com but do get the book because you wont be able to put it down. What you will learn will have you warning everyone you know not to touch this deadly chemical poison.

    Talking about poisons, aspartame travels with a hazmat placard its so deadly. Yet, its put in pediatric prescription drugs like pediatric Augmentin (penicillin) and even over-the-counter pediatric drugs. Read the Artificially Sweetened Horror story and youll understand about some SIDS deaths. http://www.wnho.net/sweetened_horror_story.htm

    Another study in Denmark has proven that aspartame can jump preterm births by 78%.
    Psychiatrist Dr. Ralph Walton said, “Aspartame is a multipotential toxin and carcinogen. 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.”

    Dr. Walton is now doing a study on aspartame and birth defects. Go to my web site at http://www.mpwhi.com and on the banner you will see a short form that will only take about 10 minutes to complete. Please do so if you have given birth since 1984. Also you can take it off my web site and add it to your own if you really want to help. The form should be sent to Dr. Walton at rwalton193@aol.com
    From the aspartame documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, is this clip with Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon discussing aspartame and pregnancy: http://www.soundandfury.tv/pages/blaylock.html Get the entire movie from CoriBrackett at cori@sweetremedyradio.com

    In an effort to save the children, aspartame experts have written new reports on how it destroys their brains so we can email the vital information to schools, pediatricians and OB-GYN. Heres the Report to Schools: http://www.wnho.net/report_on_aspartame_and_children.htm These articles include information from the ADD folks who banned aspartame a couple of years ago. Many pediatric Rx and over-the-counter drugs contain this toxin as well as pediatric vitamins. Pediatricians need to be alerted so they wont prescribe these drugs.

    Be particularly concerned with Wrigley’s gum as most of their brands contain aspartame and sometimes blended with other dangerous sweeteners such as Splenda, a chlorocarbon poison, and acesulfame potassium, which caused cancer and leukemia in original studies. According to Dr. H. J. Roberts because its buccal and goes directly into the mouth, it works like nitroglycerin, goes through saliva straight to the brain.
    Dr. Roberts wrote the medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, http://www.sunsentpress.com, and discusses children’s abnormal behavior from this toxin. “Irritability, aggression, hyperactivity (“the need to keep moving”), crying, whining, impulsivity, slurred speech, and learning problems have been associated with or aggravated by the use of aspartame products. Some concerned teacher-correspondents attributed the increased frequency of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and declining school grades to their widespread consumption. These changes have been various referred to as “Jekyll and Hyde behavior” and “the Halloween effect.” His CD Mommy Links will also help young mothers.
    Keep your little ones far from harms way. For children who cannot use sugar there are safe substitutes like Just Like Sugar which is available at http://www.justlikesugarinc.com Add your zip code on line and it will tell you where you can get it in your city. An analysis showed it to be free of MSG and aspartic acid, excitotoxins. Its made of only chicory, orange peel, calcium and Vitamin C. No need for anyone to consume deadly chemical sweeteners.

    See Dr.Blaylocks DVD on Nutrition and Behavior http://www.russellblaylockmd.com This will help parents and schools understand how damaging some of these additives are. Dr. John Olney wrote a 49 page report to the FDA Board of Inquiry a quarter of a century ago explaining what would happen if aspartame was approved. Unfortunately his prophecy has been fulfilled.

    The point Cameron Dias is making is simple; one cigarette now and again is not going to kill you, nor is one diet Coke but taken on a daily basis over a long period of time (0-20years) they could just kill you or leave you seriously debilitated. WHY? They both (cigarettes and aspartame) release very small amounts of methanol into your bloodstream.

    Every molecule of this methanol has the ability to become a molecule of formaldehyde deep within our most sensitive organs including the brain, heart, lungs and even DNA. The chemistry of this metabolism is not very well developed; to learn more follow the clues in “While Science Sleeps” by Woodrow C. Monte
