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?!

You're right...everybody has an angle for wanting you to believe what they're saying...especially when they have deep pockets and a savyy marketing department!

Did you see the thing on TV yesterday about the Esuvee? It's a "monster" truck?! That is part of a settlement involving Ford who was accused of creating a social environment for making the 18 - 34 year old males think they're invincible when they drive SUV's, making those males more likely to be involved in rollover crashes!! OK - so, do these guys ever get a brain installed so they can think for themselves?! Why not also sue the cable companies for carrying those ads and making them available? What about the magazines? I truly believe our judicial system has gone awry and you're right...whatever happened to personal responsibility?!

OK - that was PART TWO of JOANIE'S SOAPBOX!! (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/mad.gif)
