Exclamation everytime I start using Sweet & Low again, I get nauseated,

It seems as if everytime I start using Sweet & Low again, I get nauseated, I have diarrhea and my bowels just hurt. My whole inners just don't seem right. I don't like the taste of Equal. To me, it seems I have to use twice as much Splenda to make it sweet.

I try to drink lemonade, koolaid and green tea.

I can't drink cola and water has to have some kind of flavor which then makes me have to use Sweet & Low.

Can anyone tell me why this sweetener does this? It litterally makes me so sick for days until I get it out of my system.

Re: Don't know where to post this one???

you are allergic to it. dont use it. your body is telling you "hey dont put that crap in me!!" (just the smell of sweetnlow makes me sick) Equal is nearly the same.

Splenda on the other hand is all good. I can still tell the difference and still can't drink much of it in cola but works good in tea and coffee.

or jsut use sugar.

If you do some research you'll find all these artificial sweeteners are bad for you and can cause all kinds of health problems. It's been going on for years. Use Stevia (sweet leaf) if you want to stay away from sugar. I understand a few of the soda manufacturers are starting to use it, or will shortly. There is a study that just came out that says stevia is dangerous, but you have to think, who stands to lose a lot of money when soda manufacturers stop using their fake stuff. I've been using stevia for years.
