Health Alert: Splenda May Be a Danger

Special Issue 01

Recently I have come across some scary, yet important info on Splenda, a no-calorie sweetener that is used in thousands of diet and sugar-free products today. The most common places to find Splenda are in diet sodas, ice creams, and baked goods. Splenda is also available in the little yellow packets as a substitute for sugar, Equal, or Sweet n Low.

Just because a product is available doesn't mean it's safe--but each person has to make his or her own decision regarding which products he or she will use. Personally, I decided to swear off Equal/Nutrasweet years ago, and now have decided to swear off Splenda as well.

If I need to use a sweetener, I use a bit of real sugar, or a sweet herb called Stevia. Stevia contains no calories and is all natural. Contact me with your address if you are interested in trying it, and I can provide you with a free sample. Here is the article...

Splenda Invades the Cereal Market

Splenda is now America's leading sweetener, displacing real sugar manufacturers. However, the public is starting to catch on to the potential dangers of Splenda and McNeil wisely decided to take a proactive stance and seek to give themselves a healthy image by financially supporting a health initiative. This is just another example of their deceptive marketing ploys.

It's a great move on their part, as the average consumer is currently clueless about the health side effects of Splenda and this positioning will help to convince them that Splenda is harmless. However, that will not last much longer. You can't hide the truth from the public for much longer.

Soon the public will learn the many hidden dangers of Splenda, not the least that it is made from phosgene, a poisonous gas.

So what does it all mean?

Well, just like every thing else, you can't "have your cake and eat it too!" No- or low-calorie food still comes at a price, and that price might be to your health and even your weight. Studies have shown that diet soda drinkers gain MORE weight over the years than regular soda drinkers and those who don't drink soda...

My recommendation to you... if it's not found in nature don't ingest it!
