spenda_1Spenda. The sweet cheat many love to eat.

Well dam, apparently a bunch of lab mice may have leukemia as a result of a sucralose rich diet (sucralose being the chief ingredient in Splenda)

spenda_2As a result the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has down grades Splenda from “Safe” to “Caution.” Sucralose may soon join the ranks of the artificial sweeteners saccharin, and aspartame. All having “avoid” ratings for their cancer creating tendencies in lab creatures.


“The forthcoming Italian study warrants careful scrutiny before we can be confident that the sweetener is safe for use in food,”

– CSPI executive director Michael F. Jacobson.

The CSPI recommends switching to water or seltzer water to curtail soda cravings. When I want a soda I brake the bank and drop $3-4 bucks on a Kombucha.


My attempts at making my own have not been tasty as of yet.
