Dear Doctor Hull,

I have been using Splenda7reg; now for approximately a year now and have an interesting story to tell. I chose to start using Splenda in place of sugar to help me in my dieting to lose some weight (about 6 packets a day).

To make a long story short, during this one year of use, I noticed that I had been getting acid reflux and couldn't figure out why. I went to my primary care physician and he sent me for some x-rays and blood work, but there wasn't anything very definitive shown. I then proceeded to see a gastro-specialist and they wanted me to have an endoscopy done the next month. But, again they had no definitive answer to my problems. So, I went home after seeing the specialist and was trying to figure out for myself what the problem was and what I changed in my diet/life - Splenda had been the only thing.

So, I've been "Splenda-free" for 2 weeks now after seeing the specialist, and now have no acid reflux problems or stomach cramps. Is this coincidence? I don't think so, and I don't think that Splenda is a "problem-free" alternate to sugar. I truly believe that it was the cause of my problems and have continued to campaign against its use to friends and family. It is "not" safe for everyone and I'm willing to go on the record and say this.

Absolutely you may publish this. I believe others should be warned of these side-affects. Artificial does not mean better for you. Stick to the real deal just in moderation.

- T. P.
