Twisted: Splenda actually promotes weight gain, study finds

Sucralose, which you may know better as Splenda, was shown to have an adverse effect on thyroid axis activity in male rats. People who are replacing sugar with Splenda to control their weight may actually be doing more harm to themselves than if they had just used regular sugar, and the problems don’t end solely with weight issues. Thus, the outward declarations of products that use sucralose in any capacity to be promoting a healthier life won’t technically be construed as false advertising until further testing can be performed.
