Where Did Splenda Come From?

Once Upon A Time...

in 1975, an Indian graduate student studying in London was trying to come up with a new form of insecticide. Yes, that's right, a substance that kills bugs. In the process of this research, his adviser asked him to test these compounds he was working on. There was a bit of a language barrier between the Indian student and his adviser, and he misunderstood the adviser's request. He thought the adviser was asking him to TASTE the compounds, so he did! He found that the compound tasted sweet, and that is where Splenda was born!

Does knowing Splenda is a compound that was designed to KILL INSECTS inspire you with confidence that it is safe for YOU to ingest?

I HOPE NOT!  I hope you will never touch another drop of Splenda as long as you live!

And by the way, if you ever have trouble with roaches in your house, just open up a package of EQUAL (Nutrasweet) and sprinkle it in the area that you have seen the roaches. After they eat it, THEY WILL DIE!

Do you want to die too?

What is Splenda?

Splenda is produced by chemically changing the structure of sugar molecules by substituting three chlorine atoms for three hydroxyl groups. The resulting substance is no longer sugar.According to Consumers Research Magazine, concern was raised about sucralose being a chlorinated molecule since some serve as the basis for such pesticides as DDT, which accumulate in body fat. However, the manufacturer was quick to assure the public that sucralose passes through the body unabsorbed. However, contrary to this claim, sucralose is absorbed and metabolized into the body – as much as 40%, according to Japanese researchers. In particular, the absorbed sucralose has been found to concentrate in the liver, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract. Even though pre-approval research showed that Splenda caused the thymus gland to shrink up to 40% while enlarging the liver and kidneys and calcifying the kidney, it was still approved for human consumption. 

Other problems that research has shown in animals includes the following:

Enlarged liver and kidneys

Increased cecal weight
Reduced growth rate
Decreased red blood cell count
Hyperplasia of the pelvis
Extension of the pregnancy length
Aborted pregnancy
Decreased fetal body weight and placental weights
Encourages unhealthy eating habits
Deters weight loss

Use Xylitol or Stevia instead.  Stevia has over 500 studies confirming its safety and effectiveness.  Visit our Stevia Store.
