• Sucralose. Don’t believe the manufacturer’s claim that this sweetener is “natural” or “tastes like sugar since it’s made from sugar.” But also don’t believe the Internet conspiracy theories that it’s toxic; it appears to be safe. Used as a tabletop sweetener (Splenda) and in some baked goods, frozen desserts, and diet soft drinks. Unfortunately, it’s often used with acesulfame.
Jacobson says that while it’s important to pay attention to the presence of many of these food additives, one shouldn’t fetishize them at the expense of several ingredients whose presence we take for granted in foods, namely sugar—in both its naturally occurring forms and in high-fructose corn syrup—and salt.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest has downgraded its safety rating of sucralose, the artificial sweetener also known by the brand name Splenda, from “caution” to “avoid” in the group’s Chemical Cuisine glossary of food additives. The nonprofit food safety and nutrition watchdog group is citing a newly published study from the respected Ramazzini Institute, an independent laboratory based in Italy, which found that the chemical caused leukemia and related blood cancers in male mice.
So here’s my gripe with CSPI:
HOW MANY PEOPLE DIED WHILE YOU SHILLED FOR SPLENDA – WHILE YOU TOOK MONEY FROM A SUBSIDIARY OF SPLENDA’S PARENT COMPANY JOHNSON & JOHNSON – WHILE YOU EQUATED SUCRALOSE SKEPTICS WITH CONSPIRACY THEORISTS?!
And how f*cking dare you equate sucralose skepticsm with a foot fetish and bestiality. How…f*cking…dare…you.
(And of course leftists will not attack CSPI for equating sucralose skeptics with sexual perverts. After all, CSPI attacked Rainbow Doritos for having artificial colors and nobody attacked CSPI…but Mike Adams attacked Rainbow Doritos for having artificial colors and GMOs and MSG and got called a homophobe.)
If Mike Adams had equated sucralose users with sexual perverts, the left would have attacked him.
