Executed as a tactic to trick consumers, the Corn Refiners Association in 2010 decided to rename high-fructose corn syrup to ‘corn sugar’ as it would appear on food labels. The change was contrived by the organizations in response to millions of consumers recognizing the negative health consequences associated with the ingredient. Now, another sinister product is being marketed to the public differently, also because millions of consumers are recognizing the harm surrounding its consumption.
Splenda Tricking People
Splenda has been sold as a no calorie sweetener for years, and for years those who use it have been suffering from health consequences. Sucralose, sold under the brand name Splenda, is nothing but chlorinated sugar. While sugar itself is leading to numerous health complications, chlorine is employed as a biocide in bleach, disinfectants, and insecticides. Needless to say, consuming this chlorocarbon is ruining your health.
Instead of Splenda rightfully discontinuing their toxic creation, they have decided to make it sound even better for consumers. Splenda Essentials, a product being pushed on ‘health-conscious’ individuals, is packed full of vitamins and nutrients such as B vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber. Unfortunately, you would need to consume inconceivable amounts for any positive health impact. Even if you were to benefit at all from the added vitamins, you are still consuming the highly toxic sucralose.
According to a Duke University study, Splenda has been shown to cause digestive imbalance by altering the microflora in the intestine while exerting other adverse effects. Nearly 200 studies have been conducted on Splenda, but only 10 percent (15 studies) looked at safety. 13 of those studies were funded by the creators of Splenda.
In “The Lethal Science of Splenda, a Poisonous Chlorocarbon,” Dr. Bowen explains how chlorocarbons like sucralose can cause cancer, birth defects, and immune system destruction. He goes on to say:
“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.”
Unfortunately there is a high chance that you could fall victim to these negative health consequences even if you don’t use Splenda. Sucralose has been shown to be contaminating much of the nations waste water, surface water, and ground water. To determine the degree of its presence, researchers analyzed water samples from 19 US drinking water treatment plants (DWTP) which serve more than 28 million people. Sucralose was found in source water of 15 out of 19 water samples, finished water of 13 out of 17, and distribution system water of 8 out of 12.
Most people already familiar with what it takes to achieve optimal health won’t fall for Splenda’s marketing ploy, but the company may very well get high response from the majority of consumers.
