Making Life Sweet - Splenda": Is It Safe Or Not?
By Dr. Janet Starr Hull, PhD., CN
The dangers of aspartame are now 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.
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
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 to use Splenda
