SPLENDA

Splenda (sucralose) causes weight gain in animals both during and after treatment

Rats given Splenda (sucralose) gained more weight than rats not given Splenda (sucralose) according to a recent study from Duke University.

They not only gained more weight -- 9-12 percent more weight -- during the three months they were given Splenda (sucralose), they also gained more weight after they were stopped given Splenda (sucralose) -- 17-21 percent more. Yikes!

This same study found that Splenda (sucralose) also reduces good bacteria in the gut.

My Advice: Avoid Splenda!

My advice is -- Avoid Splenda (sucralose)! It causes weight gain during and after use. It decreases good gut bacteria which may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and irritable bowel syndrome. It looks to me like by consuming it, you have nothing to gain and everything to lose. Sounds like something I want to avoid like the plague. Read the entire article | Email this article
