Dangers of Sucralose (also known as Splenda) - check your product labels!

Splenda, (sucralose) AVOID

The advertising for this product is very misleading. Although sucralose may start out using sugar, the chemical transformation used creates a product that the body does not recognize as food.
Splenda is not a natural substance, it is an artificial chemical sweetener manufactured by adding three chlorine atoms to a sugar molecule.
There have been no long-term human studies on Splenda to determine the potential health effects on people, no one can say with certainty that the substance is safe to eat.
Some of the common side effects of Splenda include skin rashes/flushing, panic like agitation, dizziness, numbness, diarrhea, muscle aches, headaches, intestinal cramping, bladder issues and stomach pain. If you suffer any of these symptoms avoid all use of this product to test if the symptoms continue.
Short-term studies showed that sucralose caused shrunken thymus glands and enlarged livers and kidneys in rodents.

NEW STUDY REVEALS SHOCKING TRUTHS ABOUT SPLENDA

As reported in Globe Newswire Sept. 2008
"James Turner, the chairman of the national consumer education group Citizens for Health, has expressed shock and outrage after reading a new report from scientists outlining the dangers of the artificial sweetener Splenda (sucralose).
In animals examined for the study, Splenda reduced the amount of good bacteria in the intestines by 50 percent, increased the pH level in the intestines, contributed to increases in body weight and affected P-glycoprotein (P-gp) levels in such a way that crucial health-related drugs could be rejected.
The P-gp effect could result in medications used in chemotherapy, AIDS treatment and treatments for heart conditions being shunted back into the intestines, rather than being absorbed by the body.
According to Turner, "The report makes it clear that the artificial sweetener Splenda and its key component sucralose pose a threat to the people who consume the product. Hundreds of consumers have complained to us about side effects from using Splenda and this study ... confirms that the chemicals in the little yellow package should carry a big red warning label."
