Equal is a lot worse. And we've been saying splenda is crap for years, but they claimed studies showed it to be safe.
Problem is, in the USA, splendid is found in many major city water supplies.
So you ingest it whether you want to or not.

And may I add, everyone should start paying attention to carageenan.
It's in many dairy products, and it too, is CRAP

I went full retard in this department, I have been awful about it for 20+ years. Thankfully I see more and more people studying labels and shop better things. I used to bring my list of E numbers to the store and whip it out to see what the number meant. Of course I wouldn't buy anything with any additives, but it gave me a kick to whip out that pamphlet that unfolded like an accordion.
