“More On “Fire In The Belly”
By Keith Scott-Mumby MD,PhD
Splenda®, also known as sucralose, is an artificial, chemical sweetener.
Despite advertisements stating “Made from Sugar, so it Tastes like Sugar”, which attempt to confuse consumers, Splenda® is not natural and contains no elements of natural sugar.
You may also be surprised to learn that Splenda® contains chlorine. Yes, the same chlorine that goes in swimming pools. And here’s the worst side effect:
Just like chlorine kills off micro-organisms in swimming pools, Splenda® and sucralose kill off healthy bacteria that lives in your gut — healthy bacteria that are VITALLY important to virtually every aspect of your health.
Recently, a study at the University of Duke confirmed this very finding. Not only is sucralose a heavily-processed, chemical artificial sweetener, but it’s also damaging to your gut health, which goes on to affect every other aspect of your health.
Here’s a direct quote from that study:
“Splenda® suppresses beneficial bacteria and directly affects the expression of the transporter P-glycoprotein and cytochrome P-450 isozymes that are known to interfere with the bioavailability of nutrients. Furthermore, these effects occur at Splenda® doses that contain sucralose levels that are approved by the FDA for use in the food supply.”
I’ve told you before that over 80% of your immune system finds it’s home in your gut? In fact, there are more than 100 TRILLION living bacteria in your gut that control many aspects of your health, and due to things like the ingestion of artificial sweeteners like Splenda®, most folks have created a massive bacterial imbalance in their body.
But, it doesn’t just stop with the use of Splenda® or other artificial sweeteners. There are MANY other factors that are contributing to the bacterial imbalances that BILLIONS of folks are silently suffering from all around the world.”March 8, 2013 at 1:52 pm #100015

Splenda is poison for your good bacteria and was a major contributor to my candida issues. I was fairly healthy until I drank sports drinks with splenda in them. This and aspartame should be banned from this earth as they are ruining peoples health. The makers of splenda+aspartame should be sued for ruining peoples health. I would be the first in line.
AVOID SPLENDA BY ALL MEANS!!!!March 8, 2013 at 2:05 pm #100018
