Artificial Sweetener : Is Splenda (Sucralose) OK or Not?

Is Splenda (Sucralose) OK or NOT? NOT! – Splenda (Sucralose) is a chemically manipulated sugar molecule that isn’t absorbed by our bodies like sugar, but affects us in many negative ways.  And unfortunately the manufacturers are trying to get FDA approval to include it in foods, drinks, and other products without including it on the product label! My Opinion:  Don’t touch the stuff.  It’s too easy to eliminate this, amongst all of the other toxins/poisons that we breathe, drink, and can’t easily (or practically) avoid. The following details excerpted from James Bowen, M.D., A physician, biochemist, and survivor of aspartame poisoning who warns about yet another synthetic sweetener, Sucralose.

“By this process chlorocarbons such as sucralose deliver chlorine directly into our cells through normal metabolization. This makes them effective insecticides and preservatives. Preservatives must kill anything alive to prevent bacterial decomposition.”

Dr. Bowen believes ingested chlorocarbon damage continues with the formation of other toxins: “Any chlorocarbons not directly excreted from the body intact can cause immense damage to the processes of human metabolism and, eventually, our internal organs. The liver is a detoxification organ which deals with ingested poisons. Chlorocarbons damage the hepatocytes, the liver’s metabolic cells, and destroy them.

In test animals Splenda produced swollen livers, as do all chlorocarbon poisons, and also calcified the kidneys of test animals in toxicity studies. The brain and nervous system are highly subject to metabolic toxicities and solvency damages by these chemicals. Their high solvency attacks the human nervous system and many other body systems including genetics and the immune function. Thus, chlorocarbon poisoning can cause cancer, birth defects, and immune system destruction. These are well known effects of Dioxin and PCBs which are known deadly chlorocarbons.”

Dr. Bowen continues: “Just like aspartame, which achieved marketplace approval by the Food and Drug Administration when animal studies clearly demonstrated its toxicity, sucralose also failed in clinical trials with animals. Aspartame created brain tumors in rats. Sucralose has been found to shrink thymus glands (the biological seat of immunity) and produce liver inflammation in rats and mice.
