    What this means is that when we drop a ball and it falls to the ground, it wasn't the ball that moved (down to the ground), but the ground that moved (up to the ball)

    Splenda is a simple sugar just like table sugar. The difference is its like 200 times sweeter so very little is needed to sweeten food, thus it has very few calories. Aspartame is whats said to cause cancer, maybe your friend got the two mixed up.

    I know the company the makes Splenda has a laws suite pending about the way they are marketing it. "Made from sugar so it tastes like sugar" they some how treat sugar with chlorine and replace hydrogen and oxygen with chlorine. Not sure if that would cause brain damage, but not the natural sweetener you might have thought it to be.

    I'll have to look for that article.

    The majority of the lawsuits were initiated by competitors (i.e. Nutrasweet) who don't like the fact that Splenda is taking over the market.

    Most studies I've seen suggest Slenda is relatively safe, although it would be good to see long term analysis in the future. Here's a few studies from PubMed.

    Yeah--I sure hope it's safe. That's the real quesiton. Their marketing is not misleading, and it tastes a lot better than Nutrasweet.

    My knee jerk reaction is that molecularly altering sugar via cholrination might have adverse effects down the line.

    It seems to me that our experience with artificial sweetners shows that they don't come without side effects.

    Well its supposed to be ok for you in small quantities. But the problem with aspartame is that it contains two amino acids; (Phenalanine+aspartic acid) and methanol. Methanol is a poison rarely found in freestanding form, but it is the first thing to break down in your system. Freestanding methanol can cause and endless list of symtoms from headaches to blindness. As well, when aspartame is heated above 85 degrees(such as leaving a can of soda out on a hot day) the aspartame decomposes into freestanding methanol.(Yum!)
    Before aspartame can be removed from your body it must go through an energy draining process which convert methanol in formaldehyde, a substance used for embalming.
    All this of this was approved by the commissioner FDA in 1981 when indications had already been made that aspartame could cause brain tumors.

    There have been all kinds of stories/rumors floating around about Splenda. Most of them are a few years old. If you do search on the forum, I'm sure you will find that this issue has come up before. Redspy has already posted a few articles for you.

    this is exactly why I don't use "fake" sugars. I just use less of the real stuff.

    Right--it's kind of like getting used to Skim Milk, then loving it. You no longer miss the extra fat and cholesterol.

    Same goes for sugar. There are a lot of alternatives that don't involve a chemistry set

    BTW--what's the story on Stevia? (aside from not being able to be sold as a sweetner thanks to lobbying by the sweetner industry). Is it safe? Tasty?

    You'll probably die of natural causes long before you get brain cancer from eating splenda.

    and drag down the features of age,

    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Splenda is in a lot of brands of whey, including the one I consume. I need to look into this more...
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...

    iknew aspartame was bad for u about like umm... 5 years ago. my dad is really into reading up on this stuff and there was always a heated debate.. they would say aspartame was okay for you then they would say it wasnt. it keeps going back and forth. and from my readings and info from my dad. they have said that aspartame and diet drinks basically break down into embolming fluid. yes the stuff they put into dead people to preserve their bodies.
