Promoted for decades as a "safe" sugar alternative, presumably to prevent or reduce symptoms of diabetes, Splenda (sucralose) has been found to have diabetes-promoting effects in human subjects.
A new, in-depth review on the synthetic sweetener sucralose (marketed as Splenda), published in the journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, is destined to overturn widely held misconceptions about the purported safety of this ubiquitous artificial sweetener.
Food has lost its story. Stripped of context, meaning, and reduced to its molecular composition, ancient recipes for health and joy long to be recovered.
A newly published study is destined to reignite the decades old controversy about aspartame's safety, or lack thereof. Aspartame converts to formaldehyde and formic acid, which are highly toxic to the body, but the nervous system in particular.
So, you are looking to lose a few pounds, or keep them off. What better way to accomplish this feat than to eliminate both empty sugar calories and synthetic sweeteners, which studies show can generate excessive cravings for sweets and actually increase weight gain.
Is Splenda really a food, or a highly toxic chemical?
In the first study of its kind, Splenda (sucralose) has been found to have potential neurotoxic properties that could explain why it causes abnormal behavioral changes in aquatic animals.
A groundbreaking new study reveals that non-caloric artificial sweeteners (NAS) drive obesity- and diabetes-related changes in both mice and humans.
A concerning new study finds that most of the breast milk samples tested contained artificial sweeteners. Why has this never been discovered until now and what are the implications to our most vulnerable populations?
Avoid these sugar substitutes for breast cancer healing, prevention and a healthy, chemical-free lifestyle.
While millions around the world consume foods and beverages sweetened with Splenda (sucralose) with abandon, an accumulating body of research indicates that this synthetic chemical is far from safe, may contribute to obesity and blood sugar disorders, and more recently has even been linked to leukemia in animal experiments.
Is your yogurt damaging your health? Are these highly processed ingredients in your grocery store yogurt?
Sugar and artificial sweeteners are so accessible, affordable and socially sanctioned, that few consider their habitual consumption to be a problem on the scale of say, addiction to cocaine. But if recent research is correct, their addictive potential could be even worse.
