Splenda - Deadly Food
« on: June 28, 2007, 12:56:49 PM »
I came across a packet Splenda and noticed a diabolical claim: "Suitable for people with diabetes."  So I pondered on the idea of a miracle chemical that could sweeten foods yet not affect diabetics. But, if one would look closely to the ingredients I saw two types of sugar (sugar being the obvious bane of diabetics): Dextrose and Sucralose.  How can the FDA get away with this deadly product?  Simple. For Money.  The FDA has been given handouts since it first arose.  Numerous fast food and restaurant industries have funded the FDA to ensure MSG is kept legal.  MSG is infamous for its harmful effects including obesity, hypoglycemia, and retinal degeneration.

In conclusion, Splenda, just like the FDA and TheEngineer, spread lies that are not only limited to diabetics, but also to the consumer.  For example, its main ingredient, sucralose, is supposedly 320 to 1000 times sweeter than sugar.  But don't bother tasting a packet of Splenda; you find it to taste like chalk!

Splenda doesn't raise my type 1 diabetic girlfriend's blood sugar any measurable amount. It's not Dextrose or Sucralose, but rather glucose, being that blood sugar levels are a measurement of glucose in the blood.

There is a fear that Sucralose can affect the Thymus, but apparently it would take a large amount over a given period to do so.

Yes, quite.  No one would ever claim to be someone they're not in their profile name.

Yep, I stand corrected. Still, you are talking 1/8 the carbohydrates of regular sugar. It's also not hard on her kidneys like aspertame.

Is she allowed to consume more natural sugars, like fructose, maltose, and lactose?

Pfft, who cares about Splenda.  Everything you eat is either pumped with harmful chemicals, modified from a natural food, or just made with shit.

This is true.  Lots of juices are prepackaged with sodium benzoate, which once breaks down and comes in contact with citrus acid, will result in benzene, a carcinogen!

Fructose absorbs easier, but any carb whatsoever causes elevation in blood sugar which is compensated for with insulin from injection. Realize also that it isn't that a Type 1 diabetic can't have sugar, they just have to take insulin for it.

Type 1 = no insulin production from pancreas (this is also juvenile diabetes)

Type 2 = insulin is produced but is blocked from entering cell membrane to process sugar in cell.

She actually has a worse time with low blood sugar than high. High blood sugars cause long term damage, for example she is in renal failure and has to go to dialysis 3 times a week. Low blood sugar is immediately dangerous as she can go into a coma and brain damage can and will occur.

If only the poor pharmaceutical companies had the cash to influence the FDA, it's only the big time fast food market...

In Texas, there is currently a legislative battle against Coka A Cola Inc, due to a constant stream of Consumer Reports articles showing that RAT PISS is consistently found staining the tops of the cans people drink out of.
