Do you know that Splenda has been found in water supplies across the usa.
Major city reservoirs ?
No explanation to how it got there.

This grows in our area and my wife adds some to MY tea and it seems to do many things for me, and NOPE i don't have any std's LOL it has many other uses and one of those is for asthma, so I thought i would pass this along in case you have access to it and wished to ad some to your tea.



Medicinal use of Mormon Tea:
This plant has a wide reputation as a cure for syphilis. A strong decoction of the stems was drunk and a poultice of the pulverized or boiled stems applied to the sores. The stems are blood purifier, diuretic and tonic. An infusion has been used in the treatment of coughs and colds, anaemia, rheumatism, stomach ulcers and other disorders, kidney problems. The dried, powdered stems are used as a dressing on sores and burns. The stems of most members of this genus contain the alkaloid ephedrine and are valuable in the treatment of asthma and many other complaints of the respiratory system. The whole plant can be used at much lower concentrations than the isolated constituents - unlike using the isolated ephedrine, using the whole plant rarely gives rise to side-effects. Ephedra does not cure asthma but in many cases it is very effective in treating the symptoms and thus making life somewhat easier for the sufferer. The stems can be used fresh or dried and are usually made into a tea, though they can also be eaten raw. The young stems are best if eating them raw, though older stems can be used if a tea is made. The stems can be harvested at any time of the year and are dried for later use.

Looks like that is something else I will add to my regimen. Just started Stinging Nettle root and Dandelion root. The docs have me on the strongest meds for the asthma and still I am suffering. Reading more and more about how ALL asthma meds only make the lungs worse in the long run, thus the reason so many life long asthmatics are now in bad shape with not only their main lung issue but now had moderate to severe COPD. In Sept 2017 my lung test was great and not one single hint of COPD. Recently testing is showing moderate COPD.

Sorry, COPD doesn't go from not being there to a year later being moderate. Damned big pharma and their drugs. Scared to death of getting even a tiny cold. Anon

450ml per liter, IS A HUGE AMOUNT!

For those of you who are aware of the health dangers posed by artificial sweeteners and dutifully avoid them, the featured study findings may come as a shocking surprise...

Researchers have found that the artificial sweetener sucralose (Splenda) is a widespread contaminant in waste water, surface water, and ground water. In a recent test, water samples from 19 U.S. drinking water treatment plants serving more than 28 million people were analyzed for sucralose. The sweetener was found to be present in:

The source water of 15 out of 19 of drinking water treatment plants testedThe finished water of 13 out of 17 plants, andIn 8 out of 12 water distribution systems

The average amounts of sucralose in source water and finished water was 440 ng/L and 350 ng/L respectively.

According to the study:

"Further, in the subset of [drinking water treatment plants] with distribution system water sampled, the compound was found to persist regardless of the presence of residual chlorine or chloramines ... The results of this study confirm that sucralose [is] an indicator compound ... for the presence of other recalcitrant compounds in finished drinking water".

Recalcitrant compounds are organic or synthetic compounds that resist being broken down by chemical processes, such as those employed by water treatment facilities. This is troublesome, particularly as sucralose can be quite detrimental to human health, and the contamination appears to be very widespread in US water supplies.

Sucralose Destroys Healthy Bacteria

Three years ago, an animal study published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health reported that sucralose:

Reduced the amount of good bacteria in the animals' intestines by 50 percentIncreased the pH level in the intestinesContributed to increases in body weight, andAffected P-glycoprotein (P-gp) levels in such a way that crucial health-related drugs could be rejected. In terms of human health, this P-gp effect could result in medications used in chemotherapy, AIDS treatment and treatments for heart conditions being shunted back into your intestines, rather than being absorbedIs absorbed by fat cells (contrary to previous claims)

The fact that Splenda can destroy up to 50 percent of your healthy intestinal bacteria is truly disturbing as these help maintain your body's overall balance of friendly versus unfriendly micro-organisms, and support your overall immunity and general health. Many people are already deficient in healthy bacteria due to choosing highly processed foods, which is why a high-quality probiotic is one of the very few supplements I recommend for nearly everyone. And now we discover that this artificial sweetener also contaminates a majority of US municipal water supplies as well...

Splenda has NEVER Been Proven Safe for Human Consumption

Did you know that only two human trials on sucralose were completed and published prior to the FDA approving Splenda for human consumption? And these two trials included a total of 36 human subjects. Worse yet, the longest running trial lasted only four days, and looked at sucralose in relation to tooth decay, not human tolerance. As for determining the absorption of Splenda into the human body, a mere eight men were studied. Based on that singular human study, the FDA allowed the findings to be generalized as being representative of and regarded as "safe" for the entire human population!

This is a potentially devastating mistake, as some groups are far more susceptible to adverse effects than others, such as infants, the elderly, and the chronically ill.

You've probably heard the claims that the FDA has reviewed over 100 studies on Splenda and are satisfied that it's a safe product, but what you don't hear is that most of those studies were on animals, and that they actually revealed plenty of problems! For example, some of these studies revealed: 

Decreased red blood cells -- sign of anemia -- at levels above 1,500 mg/kg/dayIncreased male infertility by interfering with sperm production and vitality, as well as brain lesions at higher dosesEnlarged and calcified kidneys Spontaneous abortions in nearly half the rabbit population given sucralose, compared to zero aborted pregnancies in the control group A 23 percent death rate in rabbits, compared to a six percent death rate in the control group

It May be Made from Sugar, But it's Nothing Like it...

Don't let the name fool you. Sucralose is NOT some magical calorie-free sugar, despite Splenda's famous slogan, "Made from sugar, so it tastes like sugar." It is in fact a chlorinated artificial sweetener cooked up in a factory, and scores of consumers have testified to its devastating effects. It does start off as a sugar molecule—to which three chlorine molecules are added. At the end of the patented process, the chemical composition of the sugar has been altered to the point that it's actually closer to DDT and Agent Orange than sugar.

This type of "sugar" molecule does not occur anywhere in nature, and therefore your body cannot properly metabolize it. This is why Splenda is advertised as having "zero calories"—because your body cannot digest or metabolize it. Essentially, it passes right through you. Or at least that's the claim. However, according to the available research, between 11-27 percent of sucralose is in fact absorbed into your digestive system, and according to the study mentioned above, it is also absorbed into your fat cells.

The question then becomes, just what kind of impact might a DDT- or Agent Orange-like molecule have on your health?

Furthermore, few people realize that only about one percent of that packet of Splenda is actually sucralose. The remaining 99 percent is maltodextrin—a type of sugar! Each packet actually has four calories, but because the amount of sugar is less than one gram, they get away with saying it has "no calories" due to a loophole in the labeling law.

Common Side Effects of Sucralose

Just like other artificial sweeteners (such as aspartame), sucralose can wreak havoc on your health. The personal testimonials on my site alone, submitted by people who have suffered adverse reactions to Splenda, surpass the number of people that were formally studied in the research submitted for FDA approval. The web site http://www.truthaboutsplenda.com also lists consumer complaints from Splenda consumption.

Some of the most common symptoms, usually noticed within a 24-hour period following consumption of Splenda products, include:

Gastrointestinal problems: bloating, gas, pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or bloody diarrhea

Seizures

Blurred vision

Blood sugar increases

Headaches and migraines

Dizziness

Allergic reactions, including swelling of the face, eyelids, lips, tongue, or throat

Weight gain

Allergic skin reactions: Redness, itching, swelling, blistering, weeping, crusting, rash, eruptions, or hives

Breathing problems: wheezing, tightness, cough, or shortness of breath

Stuffy nose, runny nose (clear, thin discharge), sneezing

Heart palpitations or fluttering

Joint pains and aches

Bloodshot, itchy, swollen, or watery eyes

Anxiety or sensation of being "spaced-out"

Depression

How is Splenda Ending up in Drinking Water?

Well, its presence in water supplies may very well be a sign of just how prevalent its use is, because as revealed in that one absorption study, sucralose is expelled in urine and feces pretty much unaltered... I'm not sure which is more concerning, the thought that so many people use and excrete Splenda that it's becoming a drinking water contamination hazard, or that sucralose is so persistent—so difficult to break down that it can pass right through your body, and go through chemical water treatment, and STILL be present to have another go through the system of another unsuspecting person having a drink of water!

The other issue to remember is that many researchers believe sucralose has an element of fat solubility so you wind up storing some of it in your fat; certainly more if you are drinking ever increasing concentrations in your tap water.  Remember this chemical is in the same class as DDT and Agent Orange, and we have NO long term toxicity studies done on this as they were not required.

Avoiding sugar is a crucial component of a healthy lifestyle, but, instead of consuming a naturally low-sugar diet based on whole foods, some people are still trying to have their cake and eat it too. Unfortunately, the belief that artificial sweeteners can allow you to have the best of both worlds is a carefully orchestrated deception. So if you're still consuming artificially sweetened foods, snacks and beverages because you think it'll help you manage your weight, please understand that you've been sorely misled.

In reality, "diet" foods and drinks destroy your body's ability to count calories and actually promote weight gain. For example, drinking diet sodas has been found to double your risk of obesity!Complicating matters further, artificial sweeteners also appear to be highly addictive. It's important to understand that sugar cravings is typically a sign that your body needs fuel. Using artificial sweeteners will NOT trick your body into thinking it has had its fill. Instead, artificial sweeteners can increase sweet cravings because your body didn't get the energy boost it was expecting from that sweet taste.

If you're determined to sweeten your foods and beverages, I urge you to consider using stevia extract—a safe and natural sweet herb. Avoid stevia-based sweeteners like Truvia and PureVia however, as these do not contain the whole stevia plant, which may compromise its safety.

How to Remove Splenda From Your Drinking Water

Remember that Splenda is not the only contaminant in your water supply. There are loads of drugs in your water that wind up there the same way Splenda does. A reverse osmosis system will not only remove Splenda but nearly every other drug and contaminant from your water. A carbon filter will also work to remove Splenda and other contaminants but it is not quite as effective and will require you to reduce the rate of flow through the filter media. The more carbon you have that contacts the water, the more effective it will be.

I had not heard that one, but saw a study done by students at Baylor in Waco and they found ALL kinds of drugs in the river below the water treatment plant and figured out that lots of Pharma drugs stay in the water and they were effecting the fish.

My Mom drank lots of diet rite cola and she developed breast cancer, I attribute the cancer to her drinking lots of it.

I wouldn't doubt it at all, the cancer that is.

My theory is it is all a virus (cancer that is) and certain people are more susceptible.  All the junk they put in our foods are done on purpose to lower our immune system so more and more people are susceptible.  Think DNA, they are changing it with GMO's and the artificial sweeteners are adding to the cancer epidemic.  

Cancer used to be an old persons thing.  Then you'd hear of a really rare kid getting it.  Now?  Everyone else getting cancer.  There is something big time wrong going on and only some are seeing it.

When I was young, cancer was a very rare thing (in spite of the fact that 80% of adults smoked.)
The one person I knew who got cancer was a lady who lived a mile or so from us. Everyone of course was shocked (because cancer was so rare at that time), but later in life as I grew more wise to such things, I came to realize what probably caused her cancer.
These folks owned a cherry orchard. (Neither one of them smoked or drank.)
Every year they sprayed their cherry orchard with the normal pesticides.

Hmm. Gee, I wonder what caused her cancer? /sarc/
