    Are people still using Splenda even after all the negative info has come out about it? It seems like new lawsuits are popping up every day.

    the lawsuits are about misleading advertising, splenda claims that splenda is made from sugar, whereas its really made from chlorine.:ugh2:

    There's yays and nays for every fucking substance in existence. The only current lawsuit pending against Splenda is being brought by the sugar industry since they feel their product is being infringed upon.

    Seriously, there's people out there who don't want you to eat eggs, who don't want you to eat wheat, meat, bread, soy, what have you. I don't believe artificial sweeteners will hurt you in moderation. Not even Nutrasweet has been proven harmful *in moderate doses*..the studies showing links to cancer were done with elephantine doses of the substance.

    The lawsuit is not about safty but about false advertising.

    someone reads to much mercola material. You talk like their has been a mountain of peer review studies linking splenda to health risks.

    It is more like a mountain of half-ass drawn conclusions by Mercola et al.

    :werd: other than some of them saying that it's not bitter in large amounts like some other artificial sweeteners, try taking a small spoon of that stuff in :barf:

    I like stevia though; xylitol is really good... it's made from sugar

    Here's a link to an article that talks about the lawsuits against the makers of Splenda. The marketing campaign they are using is misleading towards consumers.

    ok, first off, notice the suit was brought on by the makers of equal, so right off the bat its biased.

    i guess any of them arent really all that healthy for you, but is sugar? isnt it bleached to death anyway? i like the flavor of splenda, and dont use much anyway.

    maybe sugar in the raw is the best of the worst?

    Splenda tried to come across as sugar, but in actuality it's simply a chemical compound that has to go through an extensive manufacturing process.
