Splenda - Here We Go Again

Sucralose was approved by the FDA in 1988 as a tabletop sweetener and for use in a number of desserts, confections, and nonalcoholic beverages. Splenda is approximately 600 times sweeter than sugar.

Sucralose (trichlorogalactosucrose) is a chlorocarbon and is more accurately compared to ingesting tiny amounts of chlorinated pesticides. The chlorocarbons have long been known for causing organ, genetic, and reproductive damage. It should be no surprise then, that the testing of sucralose reveals it causes up to 40% shrinkage of the thymus: a gland that is the very foundation of our immune system.

Sucralose also causes swelling of the liver and kidneys, calcification of the kidney, fertility issues in male rates, and gastrointestinal problems in pregnant rats. If you experience kidney pain, cramping, swelling, an irritated bladder, or blood in your urine after using sucralose in Splenda, stop use immediately. For furhter information on Splenda you can review my splenda toxicity page.

Som are you willing to risk your health by consuming something that closely resembles DDT? While I sure am not and have and will continue to avoid it and encourage you to do the same. I feel so strong about this that I am in the process of writing a book about Splenda and its dangers. The co-author will be the author of this article, Dr. Janet Hull. I am very excited about the collaboration and we hope to have the book out shortly after Christmas.
