This is why I don't use any type of artificial sweetners.  They had actually discovered that it was causing bad effects in some people a few years back.  The best natural substance to use is honey.  

I'm glad you found out and can discontinue using it now.  Thank you for sharing this information with everyone.

Take care.

Very interesting articles. I have been using splenda for a awhile now. I went to a neuro today being checked out for MS which he doesn't think I have. Now these articles got me thinking. I was using splenda for a long time but recently stop for the most part because I stopped drinking tea. I started using truvia and have it on my cereal every morning. I am wondering if my symptons have any thing to do with these artifical sweetners. I am going to stop using all and go back to regular sugar foods and see if my symptons subside. I wonder how long it would take to get it out of my system. I wish I would have read this before I had tea today with splenda.

Someone mentioned on another board I belong to that artificial sweeteners can increase pain in those with fibromyalgia.  From my personal experience, they definitely make my headaches worse, so I use plain sugar.

You are right. I've also heard that the artificial sweeteners can damage your neurons and cells. I used to use them a lot. I've stopped though. I only use stevia and honey. You have to read labels very carefully because there are so many products that contain artificial sweeteners.
