It's All A Conspiracy...

I found out the most disturbing thing today. As I was researching coconut oil (strange but true), I came upon a posting discussing the hazards of Splenda. So I visited The Truth About Splenda site and was horrified by what I was reading! Especially when I saw that Splenda is used in more than 3,500 processed foods and they don't all mention that Splenda or "sucralose" which is the true chemical name for it.

A friend of mine religiously uses Splenda and since I rarely drink soft drinks, at her house I always have tea - but she doesn't know how to make a proper "cuppa" so it needs to be sweetened a bit. She only has Spelnda and I always found it odd that as soon as it's added to the tea it fizzes -- it always reminds me of adding chemicals to a hot tub. Well it turns out there's a damn good reason for that -- it's made of chlorine! UGGGHHH!!

Whole Foods Grocery also made a posting as to why they won't carry Splenda related products.

My sweetner of choice is always Stevia Plus - I'm absolutely religious about it. Second choice is Sugar in the Raw. Then straight sugar -- never never never do I use anything fake. The boyfriend uses the pink stuff and every time he cracks a package open and pours it I get this whiff at the back of my throat and it just tastes "chemically".

So on a symbiotic topic, I was looking for a homeopathic solution for hypotheroidism because I am concerned about my thyroid slowing down and I will avoid pharmaceutial solutions whenever possible. It turns out that coconut oil is supposed to be an excellent, natural solution. The general concensus is that 2-4 tablespoons per day should increase the metabolism, assist the thyroid, increase energy levels, help with weight loss, improve skin condition, etc. It's definitely interesting reading.

I have never used the stuff myself but is good to know whats in it. I just always use straight sugar. Gots to have my sugar fix every day. You cant have sweet tea without some good ol sugar.

I didn't know about this negative stuff about Splenda. Thanks for sharing it. But I've been using coconut oil ever since. And I really love its effect on my skin and hair. Bought mine from http://products.mercola.com/coconut-oil/ Has anyone tried it?
