Medical News Today states: Sucralose Causes Cancer Concern


Sugar is sugar is sugar, right?   Maybe not. There is real sugar, then there are the substitutes:   You know, those cute little packets– the pink one, the blue one and the yellow one.   But what is actually in those packets?

The Pink one has saccharin in it.   The blue one has aspartame, which is a known neurotoxin. The yellow one has sucralose, which is chlorinated sucrose.   Now Sucrose comes from a plant. It comes from cane or beet sugar. Why does it need to have chlorine? Why would anyone want to ingest chlorine? When we ingest chlorine, all of the internal flora is affected. When we do not have the right good bacteria in the gut, we will not metabolize our food properly. Without the right flora, we will have gas, bloating, and an increase in weight.

Think before you add the sugar substitutes…..

Until next time,

Medical News Today states: Sucralose Causes Cancer Concern

Following the discovery in a new study that mice have a higher risk of developing cancer after eating the popular British-made low-calorie artificial sweetener sucralose, a leading cancer scientist calls for urgent research.

Dr. Morando Soffritti, director of the Ramazzini Institute in Bologna, Italy will present the findings of the study for the first time at the Childhood Cancer 2012 conference in London.

Hundreds of millions of people all around the world consume artificial sweeteners, which can be found in a large variety of foods and drinks, including soft drinks, cakes and foods for diabetics, as well as medicines. The increasing problem of obesity in developed countries, which started in the 70’s in Europe and the U.S., has led to increasing demands for reduced-calorie foods and drinks. However, the expansion of the artificial sweetener market has also led to rising concerns amongst consumers in terms of safety and potential long-term health effects, especially with regard to the potential cancer risks.
