One of the world's most popular non-caloric sweeteners has recently been exposed as a complete fraud. A new study published in the journal Diabetes Care reveals that Splenda (sucralose), which is commonly marketed to diabetics as a safe, non-nutritive sweetener (NNS), actually elicits a diabetes-promoting effect in people who consume it.
All of these synthetic sweeteners are going to cause more problems than the ones they're supposedly fixing, IMO. What do you think?

I completely agree
I don't trust that crap
Sucralose is nasty stuff, it gives me the worst headaches ever. I'd rather have good ol' sugar any day.
Quoting Creeper Is A Dude!!!:" Yeah, we've started to try and stay away from artificial sweeteners as much as possible. Splenda also (ab)used beagles for its product testing."
Both of them taste like butt.
I have never trusted that crap.. and it tastes like ass.
Quoting Just Ames:" Isn't Stevia a natural alternative to artificial sweetening?"
wiki says its all natural.
Quoting .Colleen.:" I completely agree I don't trust that crap"
I remember being a kid and my aunt telling me to never trust something if it isn't "real". She warned me about the new butters they came out with, and all types of stuff like it. It has always stuck with me. I'd much rather my kids eat real sugar, butter, etc, than that other stuff.
