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?!

Now, DawnStorm, that's just too harsh! We can't blame those poor people! Don't you realize that if there were no fast food places to taunt them and tempt them and lure them in, then they wouldn't have gone there in the first place?

Truly, it is so sad that people are not held responsible for their decisions and actions any more. Also, back to the Splenda/sugar industry lawsuit, I'm so excited to know that so many people have stopped using sugar. How awesome is that? (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) I'm sorry for the people that work in the sugar industry (sugar cane is a major crop around here), but what a sad commentary on our society that the way they handle the change in people's diets is to sue the companies with healthy alternatives! A little warped, if you ask me. (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)


That was a taste of Pam's soapbox for the day! (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
