Making Life Sweet - Splenda®: Is It Safe Or Not?

There's a sweetener war going on out there - a battle for your dollar at the expense of human health. It is important to educate yourself on the facts about Splenda, aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal®), and all the other sugar substitutes available on today's sugar-free market. In order to make a decision whether to use chemical sweeteners or not, you must have all the data available, good and bad. But ALL the information is hard for the general public to find. I have spent over fifteen years working with victims of aspartame because the truth and information about the dangers of aspartame has been quietly steered away from public access since the early 1970s.

The dangers of aspartame are now becoming widely known, but the risks of using Splenda are not as well documented - yet. Essentially, the sucralose in Splenda does not readily penetrate the blood brain barrier as aspartame does, hence creating neurotoxic havoc at the brain center. But, the research shows sucralose can negatively affect the body in several ways because it IS a chemical substance and NOT natural sugar.

The same patterns with aspartame are repeating with sucralose (Splenda). The individuals who stand to profit the most have immense influence, and the information about Splenda's dangers, just as with aspartame, is being downplayed. Corporate claims of product safety and innocuous research results are identical to those used by The NutraSweet Company. As you learn more information about Splenda and see its advertisements, note the comparisons and repeated patterns between the products, the corporations, and the marketing strategies. Maybe consumers can prevent damage to their health from sucralose sooner than they did with aspartame, which has affected the health and lives of millions of innocent people since it was introduced into the public food supply over twenty years ago. Especially, damage to a fetus or a child.

At least you, the consumer, deserve to be informed about the "other side" of this safety issue so you can make up your own mind whether Splenda Is Safe Or Not.
