Splenda Sweetener Warning
From PJ Tolley

Dear Jeff,
I just wanted to send you some information on the horrible new sweetener Splenda, so that hopefully you can warn others about this dangerous product. I tried this product, and within 2 hours of doing so, I developed severe bloating, a horrible headache and shortness of breath. I know this could only have been caused by the 3 teaspoons of Splenda I had used in my coffee, as I hadn't eaten anything yet that morning, and my coffee was freshly ground and brewed. I then did research on Sucralose (Splenda), and discovered to my surprise a website that listed these possible side effects of using Splenda.
From -
Research in animals has shown that Sucralose (Splenda) can cause many problems in rats, mice, and rabbits, such as:
* Shrunken thymus glands (up to 40% shrinkage)
* Enlarged liver and kidneys.
* Atrophy of lymph follicles in the spleen and thymus
* Reduced growth rate
* Decreased red blood cell count
* Hyperplasia of the pelvis
* Extension of the pregnancy period
* Aborted pregnancy
* Decreased fetal body weights and placental weights
* Diarrhea
And on the website they listed these possible human side effects that visitors had reported to them, including myself:
abdominal pain
migraines (severe headaches)
heart palpitations (fluttering)
shortness of breath
And here are more links dealing with the same issue:
Please warn others about this horrible sweetener. Once again our goverment is aiding and abetting the poisoning of our people by greed-driven corporations, by allowing such a dangerous product to be sold. This is just another example of how completely worthless our Food and Drug Administration truly is.
Best Regards,
PJ Tolley
