People's Chemist Expresses Concern about Artificial Sweetener - Manufacturer Not Happy

| From

SANTA FE, N.M. - Jan. 22 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Shane Ellison, an organic chemist and author of "Health Myths Exposed," asserts that a commonly used artificial sweetener may be harmful to our health. In a recent article, Shane bravely hypothesizes that it may "explode internally." He uses this term to describe its alleged potential to damage many parts of the body such as our genetic map known as DNA - deoxyribonucleic acid.

Furious over his alleged claims, manufacturers of the popular sweetener stated that the information about Splenda(R) (sucralose) included in Shane's article contains many inaccuracies and false information. They asked him to "immediately discontinue any further dissemination of these false and damaging statements." They continued by saying that if he fails to take these actions promptly, that they would "consider the need for further legal action."

Known as "The People's Chemist," Shane is undeterred by such threats. He asserts that he is entitled to his own "hypothesis." Readers should understand that he is making no definitive statements. Instead, he is expressing his grave concern over this drug disguised as a sweetener. He feels that consumers have a right to know the whole story behind what may be a very dangerous scam in the artificial sweetener business - or not.
