I like to say sucralose, not Splenda, because that is what Splenda is. And it is in a lot of stuff. The package doesn't have to say Splenda to have sucralose in it. You have to read labels.
Nobody knows if it causes cancer, or not, because there has not been any long term studies/test on humans.
A lot of people, including myself, have gotten/are getting sick from it.
Sucralose is poison. It ruined five years of my life. I had a laundry list of medical problems while taking it. I went to several doctors. I had a dozen different tests. I was told that I had a number of different problems. I was on different medication for many years.
The slogan, "Made from sugar..." is very misleading. Splenda might be made from sugar, but it is far from sugar. The resulting chemical is simply chlorinated sugar; a chlorocarbon. Common chlorocarbons include carbon tetrachloride, trichlorethelene and methylene chloride, all deadly.
carbon monoxide - made from oxygen so its like a breath of fresh air.
Artificial sweetners tell the body there is a lot of sugar in the system, but then the system is going nuts trying to find the sugar and regulate it. I think it screws up all the sensors in our system when using any fake sugars.
If I use any sugar I use the ones that say unprocessed natural, no bleaching or processing.
