People like sucralose—the artificial sweetener marketed as Splenda—because the human body can’t break it down and use it. That means the substance has almost no calories and makes it a popular ingredient in everything from cookies to diet sodas. Unfortunately, wastewater treatment plants can’t break down Splenda either. Don’t look now but although flushing the toilet make things disappear from site, it doesn’t mean we won’t be reintroduced to it later when we drink water from a municipal system. Recycling sewage is no easy task! Yum!
Samples of wastewater were taken from seven wastewater-processing plants in Arizona. For at least 48 days, the water was run through both anaerobic and aerobic biological batch reactors, systems designed to use natural processes to break down wastes. None of the samples showed a significant decrease in the amount of sucralose aka Splenda present. Based upon these results, you can bank on Splenda being present in bottled water too. Water bottling companies get their water from a local municipal water source and they don’t come close to filtering tap water to this degree!
So, it looks like you get a little Splenda (right along with a multitude of other chemicals and prescription drugs) whether you like it or not! “Cheers” to your mystery fluids!
I wouldn’t drink tap water or bottled water (aka tap water by a different name) for all of the money in the world. My family drinks ONLY electrolyzed reduced water and I sleep a lot better KNOWING that they are getting the healthiest, chemical-free (Splenda-free) water on the planet. Nope…its not cheap….but neither is the health of my family. I took care of our water needs once and for all.
I don’t cut corners when it comes to my most precious and prized “possessions”. I don’t even want to know how many thousands and thousands of dollars I spent on toxic water in a bottle before I invested in my own ionizer. Now THAT’S a scary thought.
How about you? Will you continue with the “out of site, out of mind” mentality OR will you do whatever it takes for the sake of your health? Think about it the next time you flush.
