Using Splenda May Cause Cancer, Research Suggests


According to a new study done on lab mice, the British-made low-calorie artificial sweetener sucrolase (splenda) may increase the chances of suffering from cancer.

Billions of people around the world consume artificial sweeteners found in soft drinks, cakes as well as medicine. Due to the increased incidence of obesity among developed countries, increased the demand for the use of these artificial food which reduces calorie intake. However, there has been a rising concern about the safety and potential long-term effects of these artificial flavors, in particular, to cancer risks.

Earlier studies led by Dr. Soffritti, approximately 3,000 lab mice were fed with aspartame, an artificial sweetener, had higher risks of developing cancer. But up until now, food scientists still revere aspartame to be safe for consumption. This concerned the European Food Safety Authority which led them to begin a new investigation.

In their study, they used Splenda, another artificial sweetener, on 843 lab mice, from the time they were conceived up to the time of their death, in varying doses of sucrolase. According to the post-mortem, the more sucrolase the mice consumed, their chances of developing cancer significantly increased, in particular leukemia.

Dr. Soffritti strongly suggest to all the consumers, to avoid eating artificial sweeteners wherever and whenever possible until further studies provide evidence that can disprove the findings.
