Leslee joined our Inner Circle sharing her experiences with Splenda.
I asked if I could share her story, and this was her reply:
By all means, include my story – all or any part of it – in anything or anyway you wish. The word needs to be spread and I would like to be a part of that.”
To answer your question – YES, my increasing health symptoms disappeared once I quit using Splenda.
My HUGE abdomen has subsided to nearly its normal size. Before I stopped using Splenda, it was the size of a 7 month pregnant woman.
I was swollen all over.
I will email you a before and after picture within the next few days. (Don’t post the pictures, though. LOL) You will be amazed at the difference after only a week without this poison.
Do you know if any one has done any kind of special program dedicated to aspartame or Splenda poisoning … i.e, Oprah, 60 Minutes, etc??
I am so elated to be nearly back to normal, but I have so much anger after all the suffering I did.
I have done additional research and discovered more than one article indicating that aspartame can cause ovarian/uterine tumors. I wonder how much a jury would think mine were worth??
I used them both – aspartame and Splenda. It’s hard to find products without more than one of these toxins in it.
I never had any health problems at all until I began to use the artificial sweeteners. How very sad to think that many more people will go through life feeling as I did and not have a clue why.
That’s why I want to help in any way that I can to reach everyone!

Thank you for all that you do. I have learned so very much having joined your support group.
From Dr. Hull
Welcome to my world – and to the world of so many others in my Inner Circle.
You are not alone, but it is sad that you had to go through this when the FDA and the corporations have known about these side effects since they first started testing these chemical sugars in the lab.
They know. They have known from Day 1.
When my books first came out in the bookstores, I did a lot of media, and I have been interviewed by 60 Minutes, 20/20, NPR, PBS, and many local television talk shows, but none of them aired. As time goes on, the government watchdogs do nothing, the corporations continue to hide the truth, and the media continues to advertise and promote these products.
My Inner Circle is about the only place around to offer support and all the research for you exposing what’s behind the health dangers of the artificial sweeteners. I have been keeping the candle burning since 1991, and I will continue to do so because I am one of the original aspartame whistleblowers and I was the first person to bring the truth about sucralose (sold as Splenda) to America.
In my books, I have the truth about saccharin safety, the research about acesulfame-K, neotame, the sugar alcohols, and the history of stevia.
Learn all that you can so you can help others become aware. Sadly, that’s all we can do for now.
The best thing to focus on is your recovery and your awareness. You have saved yourself from so much needless suffering.
All the best in your future success. Please stay in touch.
