in 8th grade and through high school, i was a Splenda addict. i probably ate 10 packets a day, usually in coffee and various other foods. my friend had told me how bad it was for you but i just didn't wanna believe him. he finally bought me a book called "Sweet Deception" by Dr. Mercola. i read it and immedicately stopped my Splenda usage. still, i was diagnosed with UC at 17 but don't contribute it to using sweeteners.
