Last night Insider.com informed me that artificial sweeteners can kill you! Like many others, I had no idea. Causing stroke, heart attack, and blood clots you definitely want to avoid this weight control aid.
Splenda contains erythritol. Derived from fermented corn it’s 70% as sweet as sugar. A Cleveland Clinic Study identified a link between increased rates of heart attack, stroke, death, and erythritol (Feb 27, 2023, News Release Cleveland Clinic).
Over 4000 study participants in both US and Europe supported the conclusion that erythritol leads to blood clots. Dr. Stanley Hazen of the Cleveland Clinic advises continued studies examining the adverse effects of artificial sweeteners, especially those involving an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
