Is Splenda Hazardous to your Health?

Wednesday, October 1, 2008
When it came out, Splenda was heralded as the non-sugar that finally tasted like sugar. Lots of new moms incorporate it into their daily diet as they try to lose their baby weight.

But a new Duke University study adds fresh ammunition to the charge that it’s not very good for you – in fact, it may contribute to obesity, destroy “good” intestinal bacteria and prevent prescription drugs from being absorbed.

Splenda, of course is crying foul, saying the study was financed by competitors of Splenda, including the Sugar Association. But the Duke U. researchers are insisting the sugar industry had no input in the study’s findings and conclusions.

The final jury may still be out on this one, but it’s something to keep an eye on as you sweeten those baked goods and coffees.

While they're arguing, try this. or this. or my favorite, this.
