Artificial Sweeteners



 
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.

Some facts about Aspartame
When stored or heated above 85 degrees F., aspartame breaks down into neurotoxic substances.
 
Methanol (wood alcohol)
Formaldehyde (embalming fluid, also found in cosmetics)
Formic Acid (ant sting venom)
DKP (known brain tumor agent)
   
 
Aspartame is capable of changing the DNA structure of animals in lab tests.
 
Aspartame consumption through diet soda has recently been linked to MS, Lupus and Fibromyalgia.
 
Cases of systemic Lupus is becoming almost as rampant as MS, especially in diet soda drinkers. Methanol toxicity mimics MS; thus people are being diagnosed with MS in error. MS is not a death sentence, methanol toxicity is! The victims of methanol toxicity drink 3 to 4-12 ounce cans of diet soda per day; some even more.
In cases of Systemic Lupus (the ones triggered by aspartame) the victim usually does not know that the aspartame is the culprit. Continued use of aspartame aggravates the Lupus to such a degree that it becomes life threatening.
When people stop using aspartame, those with Systemic Lupus usually become asymptomatic. Unfortunately, the disease cannot be reversed.
   
 
Methanol converts to formaldehyde in the retina of the eye, which leads to blindness.
 
Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of drugs as cyanide and arsenicdeadly poisons. Unfortunately, it just takes longer to quietly kill your cells.
 
Aspartame changes the brain’s chemistry, which can lead to severe seizures, memory loss, confusion, and an escalation of Alzheimer’s disease.
 
And the ironic twist is that aspartame is NOT a diet product! It makes people crave carbohydrates more, which leads to overeating and weight gain. This is especially deadly for diabetics. Aspartame leads to blood sugar levels being out of control, which could cause some patients to go into a diabetic coma.
 
According to the Conference of the American College of Physicians, “We are talking about a plague of neurological diseases caused by this deadly poison.”
