Sharing Knowledge about Sucralose

For all of the new followers... I give you research and quotes by doctors so you know this is not just my opinion. I believe learning from doctors and researchers brings great knowledge. This knowledge then can give you the power to make better choices. And the power to make more informed choices that are best for you and your situation. If you feel like this knowledge is promoting fear, that is not my goal. Fear, shame, or guilt is the last thing I’d ever want to promote or want others on my site to do as well!

Those in marketing can make food that isn’t healthy seem healthy. Simple rule of thumb... look for ingredients in a product made from whole foods. An ingredient found in many “healthy” foods is sucralose. This is not a whole food ingredient and here are some issues with sucralose found in 3 studies:
.
1️⃣In 2016, the nonprofit food safety and nutrition group for America called the Center for Science in the Public Interest changed their rating of sucralose from caution to avoid after a published study from the respected Ramazzini Institute, an independent laboratory based in Italy, found that the chemical caused leukemia and related blood cancers in male mice.
.
According to CSPI, this study is more powerful than the industry-funded studies, which tested fewer animals, started exposing the animals beginning at adolescence as opposed to in utero, and ended earlier in the animals’ lives.
.
2️⃣A study published in Feb. 2017, in Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism found supportive evidence that habitual ingestion of sweeteners was associated with a risk for Type 2 diabetes.
.
3️⃣A team from George Washington University tested sucralose on stem cells and found that, for an amount equal to four cans of diet soda, it increased markers of fat production & inflammation in genes.
.
“We believe that low-calorie sweeteners promote additional fat formation by allowing more glucose to enter the cells, and promotes inflammation,” Dr. Sabyasachi Sen, G. Washington Univ.
.
“Individuals like to consume low-calorie sweeteners as an alternative to sugar. However, there is increasing scientific evidence that these sweeteners promote metabolic dysfunction.” Dr. Sen
