- James Bowen, M.D., A physician, biochemist, and survivor
of aspartame poisoning warns about yet another synthetic sweetener, Splenda.
- HAWAII -- The chemical sucralose, marketed as "Splenda",
has replaced aspartame as the #1 artificial sweetener in foods and beverages.
Aspartame has been forced out by increasing public awareness that it is
both a neurotoxin and an underlying cause of chronic illness worldwide.
Dr. James Bowen, Researcher and biochemist, reports:
- "Splenda/sucralose is simply chlorinated sugar;
a chlorocarbon. Common chlorocarbons include carbon tetrachloride, trichlorethelene
and methylene chloride, all deadly. Chlorine is nature's Doberman attack
dog, a highly excitable, ferocious atomic element employed as a biocide
in bleach, disinfectants, insecticide, WWI poison gas and hydrochloric
- "Sucralose is a molecule of sugar chemically manipulated
to surrender three hydroxyl groups (hydrogen + oxygen) and replace them
with three chlorine atoms. Natural sugar is a hydrocarbon built around
12 carbon atoms. When turned into Splenda it becomes a chlorocarbon, in
the family of Chlorodane, Lindane and DDT,
- "It is logical to ask why table salt, which also
contains chlorine, is safe while Splenda/sucralose is toxic? Because salt
isn't a chlorocarbon. When molecular chemistry binds sodium to chlorine
to make salt carbon isn't included. Sucralose and salt are as different
as oil and water.
- "Unlike sodium chloride, chlorocarbons are never
nutritionally compatible with our metabolic processes and are wholly incompatible
with normal human metabolic functioning. When chlorine is chemically reacted
into carbon-structured organic compounds to make chlorocarbons, the carbon
and chlorine atoms bind to each other by mutually sharing electrons in
their outer shells. This arrangement adversely affects human metabolism
because our mitochondrial and cellular enzyme systems are designed to completely
utilize organic molecules containing carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen,
and other compatible nutritional elements.
- "By this process chlorocarbons such as sucralose
deliver chlorine directly into our cells through normal metabolization.
This makes them effective insecticides and preservatives. Preservatives
must kill anything alive to prevent bacterial decomposition."
- Dr. Bowen believes ingested chlorocarbon damage continues
with the formation of other toxins: "Any chlorocarbons not directly
excreted from the body intact can cause immense damage to the processes
of human metabolism and, eventually, our internal organs. The liver is
a detoxification organ which deals with ingested poisons. Chlorocarbons
damage the hepatocytes, the liver's metabolic cells, and destroy them.
In test animals Splenda produced swollen livers, as do all chlorocarbon
poisons, and also calcified the kidneys of test animals in toxicity studies.
The brain and nervous system are highly subject to metabolic toxicities
and solvency damages by these chemicals. Their high solvency attacks the
human nervous system and many other body systems including genetics and
the immune function. Thus, chlorocarbon poisoning can cause cancer, birth
defects, and immune system destruction. These are well known effects of
Dioxin and PCBs which are known deadly chlorocarbons."
- Dr. Bowen continues: "Just like aspartame, which
achieved marketplace approval by the Food and Drug Administration when
animal studies clearly demonstrated its toxicity, sucralose also failed
in clinical trials with animals. Aspartame created brain tumors in rats.
Sucralose has been found to shrink thymus glands (the biological seat of
immunity) and produce liver inflammation in rats and mice.
- "In the coming months we can expect to see a river
of media hype expounding the virtues of Splenda/sucralose. We should not
be fooled again into accepting the safety of a toxic chemical on the blessing
of the FDA and saturation advertising. In terms of potential long-term
human toxicity we should regard sucralose with its chemical cousin DDT,
the insecticide now outlawed because of its horrendous long term toxicities
at even minute trace levels in human, avian, and mammalian tissues.
- "Synthetic chemical sweeteners are generally unsafe
for human consumption. This toxin was given the chemical name "sucralose"
which is a play on the technical name of natural sugar, sucrose. One is
not the other. One is food, the other is toxic; don't be deceived."
- Dr. Bowen also calls attention to another seldom recognized
and deadly permanent effect of these chemicals: "Aspartame, sold as
NutraSweet, Equal, E951, Canderel, Benevia and under other names, is a
hypersensitization agent which causes Polychemical Sensitivity syndrome.
Chlorocarbons strongly induce uncurable hypersensitivity diseases which
are now becoming rampant." (James Bowen, M.D.)
- Doctor Bowen has spent 20 years researching artificial
sweeteners after his use of aspartame resulted in being diagnosed with
Lou Gehrig's disease. Dr Bowen's intention is to warn the world of the
toxicity of tabletop poisons like aspartame, Splenda and Neotame.

- Dr. Betty Martini says "the controversy rages over
Splenda (sucralose). Is it safe and natural like sugar or is it a chlorinated
hydrocarbon? As lawsuits fly, consider the chemistry of this artificial
- She adds: "The FDA denied approval of aspartame
for 16 years, then caved in to political/economic pressure when Don Rumsfeld,
CEO of the manufacturer, was brought to Washington by Ronald Reagan. A
new FDA Commissioner was appointed to approve it then became a consultant
for NutraSweet's public relations firm for $1,000/day on a 10 year contract.
Forthcoming has been a global epidemic of disability and death. One might
expect FDA to be more cautious next time, yet FDA approved the toxic chlorocarbon
Splenda without hesitation and without any long term testing on human subjects."
