“I look at that structure and I have an irrational fear of it. I’ve seen the safety studies, and you feed it to rats and mice forever and nothing happens. But it scares me.” -Taste Research Scientist commenting on Splenda. Made from sugar and Trityl Chloride, Acetic Anhydride, Hydrogen Chlorine, Thionyl Chloride, Methanol in the presence of Dimethylformamide, 4-methymorpholine, Toluene, Methyl Isobutyl Ketone, Acetic Acid, Benzyltriethammonium Chloride, Sodium Methoxide. The Result: 1,6-dichloro-1,6-dideoxy-beta-D-fructofurnosyl-4-chloro-4-deoxy-alpha-D-galactopyranoside. Otherwise known as Sucralose Splenda. UndergroundWellness.com presents Exposing Splenda: Insecticides are good for you? Dean Croxton: Welcome back to the show. It’s been so long, since the last time I posted. I have been on vacation for the last few weeks but now I am back, I have got brand new material for you. From here on now, I am posting every Monday and Thursday. So subscribe, rate it, check me out, alright? Also be sure to check out my new website www.undergroundwellness.com. Be sure to join the forum. The forum is already cracking right now. People are posting ideas, exchanging information, asking questions, answering questions, debating. I mean, it’s awesome, it’s going down. So make sure you join up. Today’s topic is Splenda. This innocent yellow box with the Olympic rings and the American Diabetes Sponsorship and “ideal for the whole family” deal on top. What is it though? I go over to people’s houses and I go through their refrigerators, I go through their freezers and their cabinets, and always pull off that, I can’t believe it is not butter stuff. I ask them, “Well, if it is not butter, then what is it?” They always go, “Well, I don’t know.” Well, Splenda isn’t quite sugar, then what is it? I am going to tell you what it is in a second. It’s actually the product of insecticide research. True story, Queen Elizabeth College, about 1975 I think it was, two guys in the Chemistry laboratory were trying to create new insecticides. You have got a NDN grad student, you have got his advisor and they are adding Sulphuro-Chloride to sugar molecules. The advisor tells the student to test it but the student mishears him or misunderstands him and taste it instead. It was sweet and eventually the advisor started to putting it in this coffee. That money ball just started rolling and now we have got the yellow box. It's got some weirdness and that's what they are selling to you, insecticide. Now here is how you make Splenda. You drop the hydrogen out of the sugar molecule and you add chlorine, alright? Chlorine, the EPA says, is a Class 1 Carcinogen. It’s a Class 1 cancer causer. What is that about? Chlorine, it doesn’t exists in its free form anywhere in nature, you have to artificially make it. So they will tell you that Chlorine is like a regular part of food but no, that's not Chlorine, that's Chloride. Sodium Chloride or Potassium Chloride, those are the natural forms. So they add this Chlorine to the sugar molecule and they forced it to bond with Carbon, but when you do that, you have got something called an Organochlorine or a Chlorocarbon. These are toxic. That carbon acts as like a delivery system to send that toxic chlorine into the cells. That's how it works as an insecticide. So check this out. I have got this book here by Dr. Mercola, it’s called Sweet Deception. It’s all about artificial sweeteners and the nonsense behind them and some alternatives as well. It has got this list here of other Organochlorines, other Chlorocarbons, other things that have the same chemical structure as Splenda. Check this out. DDT, an insecticide banned in North America due to severe toxicity. Chlordane, another insecticide banned in 1988 due to harms to humans and the environment. I am skipping around here. PCBs used as electrical insulators and heat agents, banned in many countries due to its inability to breakdown in the environment and food chain. Mustard Gas, ch
