DH has the Forbes alert thing installed and it just popped up about a lawsuit against Splenda...

NEW YORK - In the headlines this afternoon, a lawsuit alleges that Johnson & Johnson is sugar-coating Splenda to consumers.

The Sugar Association, Merisant Worldwide, which makes rival artificial sweeteners Equal and Canderel, and a group of individuals have filed three class-action suits against J&J's (nyse: JNJ - news - people ) McNeil Nutritionals Worldwide unit. They claim McNeil misleads consumers into believing Splenda is a natural product.


OK...since it doesn't come right out of the ground or out of an animal, it's GOT to be processed...hmmm...how "natural" could it be?!

OMG!!! I have never thought that Splenda was all natural. It says right on the package that it's MADE from sugar. Made means processed. The public wants to assume no responsibility for educating themselves and being able to use common sense! Since when does "made" mean natural? That just infuriates me. That's why I don't buy into it, when I read these "warnings" that Splenda is bad for you, and it causes all these health problems. Who is writing this stuff and why should I believe them over anybody else? How do I know that it's not just a way to get people to buy the other sweeteners?
