Another reason why ALL people should avoid this toxic non food. I don't understand the idea of eating something that is not from nature yet people seem to think "all things in moderation" yeah so lets eat rat poison in moderation too and see what happens, oh wait we are doing that and seeing the affects after years of human consumption WTF?

You should look into making your own water kefir!! It's made with organic sugar and it gets fizzy like soda. You just buy the water kefir grains and it ferments in 24-48 hours and reproduces itself so you always have more lol

I'm not surprised. I tried Splenda and even Splenda sweetened items. Each time, without fail, I got a HORRID migraine. We don't even allow that stuff in our home.

I'm guilty of using it. I have finally broken the hold it had on me. We use organic cane sugar to sweeten drinks if we need to or honey.
