Hello. Here is a quote from the book, Natural Cures "They" Don't Want
You to Know About, by Kevin Trudeau:

"Sucruose - Splenda

Cambridge, Massachusetts, state court in connection with $80,000 in

said that he had posed as a doctor to increase his credibility with
bank officials. In 1991, he pled guilty to credit-card fraud in Boston
federal district court. Among his misdeeds in the federal case, he
misappropriated for his own use the credit-card numbers of customers
of the memory-improvement courses that he offered at the time ."

Mercola, a licensed D.O. who is very active in promoting good health
through nutrition and other natural approaches. His page on Splenda
cites a number of scientific studies and articles with bibliographic
information. Have a look here:
