Splenda - not so good for you

  • In recent tests, water samples from US water treatment plants discovered that the artificial sweetener sucralose (Splenda) is a widespread contaminant in both source water and treated water

  • Sucralose is a persistent contaminant as it is not broken down by the chemical water treatment process

  • Previous research has shown that sucralose can destroy up to 50 percent of beneficial intestinal bacteria (probiotics), which are essential for general health and a strong immune system

  • Sucralose is chemically closer to DDT and Agent Orange than it is to sugar

  • Splenda is known to cause a multitude of detrimental side effects in certain people, including allergic reactions and neurological dysfunction
