Did You Know? About Chlorine In Splenda

When combined with other chemicals, chlorine can change the nature of a substance, creating a new product.

Every time you drink a glass of water, read a newspaper, put on a vinyl raincoat, brush your teeth, drive your car, or drink a diet cola with sucralose, you are using chlorine in some form.

The most common industrial use of chlorine is in the manufacture of a versatile plastic known as polyvinyl chloride, or PVC.

To be used in manufacturing, chlorine must first be separated from the other elements with which it is combined.

Chlorine is a highly corrosive substance capable of damaging the skin, eyes, and other delicate membranes.

Chlorine was selected to be the substitute "atom" for the sucrose molecule in which to make Splenda, 1,6-dichloro-1, 6-dideoxy-BETA-D-fructofuranosyl-4-chloro-4-deoxy-alpha-D-galactopyranoside.

Chlorine is used in thousands of products; diverse items such as cars, computers, pharmaceuticals, and military flak jackets. And diet sweeteners.

Most people assume sodium chloride (common table salt) is the chlorine form in Splenda, but it is not. Sucralose is NOT sodium chloride - it is just chlorine.

Hospitals to swimming pools use chlorine-based compounds (such as bleach) for disinfectants.

Caustic Soda is actually a scientific name for industrially produced chlorine from the compound sodium chloride.

Chlorine vapors can irritate your lungs and pose a serious risk to people who suffer from asthma and other lung problems.
