- In addition, Splenda calcifies the kidneys....
- and just like aspartame, the manufacturer withheld research
data from the FDA.
- By Dr. Jim Bowen
- In a simple word, you would just as soon have DDT in
your food as Splenda, because sucralose is a chlorocarbon. The chlorocarbons
have long been famous for causing organ, genetic, and reproductive damage.
It should be no surprise, therefore, that the testing of sucralose, even
at less than the level demanded by FDA rules, reveals that it has been
shown to cause up to 40%shrinkage of the thymus: A gland that is the very
foundation of our immune system. It also causes swelling of the liver and
kidneys, and CALCIFICATION of the kidney.
- Lying and deceit on the artificial sweetener issue has
been the FDA's Modus Operandi ever since Donald Rummsfeld broke everything
decent in the US government to put Aspartame on the market as a "contract
on humanity". It has no commercial purpose other than a contract on
humanity. Either they have done but little testing of sucralose, or they
are so afraid of what the public would think of sucralose, and the government
if the public but knew what was going on,
- that they will not tell us! BECAUSE: we have been told
nothing about the extensive studies which would have to have been done
if very reasonable, and scientifically sound FDA rules had been followed.
- Such study results as have been made known, catches the
company in great big whopper lies! When questioned about the Thymus shrinkage
which would disqualify sucralose forever, by the FDA's own rules, the company
merely said. "Well the rats wouldn't eat the food with sucralose in
it, so the thymus lost weight from starvation." The FDA allowed that
explanation even though it was an admission that the rats hadn't ingested
the required amount of sucralose, but had demonstrated immense damage anyway!
In fact, if research animals won't voluntarily eat the required dose of
experimental substance it can be given by gastric gavage, which is a common
and well-known research method. Moreover, the rats so fed were only 7-20%
underweight Vs the average for the control group. Rats who are severely
starved to create a 30% weight loss, only shrink their thymus by an average
of 7%. The net conclusion from all this is, that both the thymus shrinkage
and the growth retardation caused by sucralose were enough to in each case
disqualify sucralose from the marketplace.
- All of these KNOWN findings only pointed out that the
testing was so flawed that it could never be used as a basis for approval
on one hand, and that the effects which were detected anyway were so severe
that sucralose should never be allowed into the human body. It should
be classified right along with DDT, and dioxin as illegal to even release
into the environment much less put into your body!
- The company blandly and heinously denied that sucralose
is a chlorocarbon. They stated that it was merely a salt, like sodium chloride!
That whopper wouldn't even get past a sophomore chemistry student. Facts,
and concern for human welfare are obviously irrelevant in our Bush dominated
government, and the Rummsfeld dominated media. What their incredulously
lying statements about what sucralose is, did bring to mind though, is
that it flies in the face of what its known breakdown product, 1,6,dichloro.fructose,
is: Another highly toxic chlorocarbon. They admittedly did not do toxicity
studies on it, as FDA rules require, or perhaps the findings were so dangerous
that they felt it better to confess to the "minor omission",
of not even complying with the law and doing the required studies! They
further tried to side step the toxicity issue by saying "Sucralose
is not even absorbed from the digestive tract anyway, because it is after
all, a chlorocarbon.": Another bold faced lie. Chlorocarbons are significantly
absorbed from the digestive tract and sucralose is no exception! It is
significantly absorbed from the GI tract. Of course, at that point their
lies had compounded and contradicted themselves.
- What you need to know about sucralose is that it is of
a class of compounds which places it amongst some of the most dangerous
chemicals on earth. The known studies, and science verify this fact. Lies
and dissimulations, which have been totally, and inexcusably left unchecked
by the FDA, point to gross governmental/corporate corruption, and massive
cover up and peril. They say "Oh, It's just made from sugar, what
could be more natural and harmless."
