I hear a lot that splenda contains something that causes cancer, is this true or not? I need to know what's up with artificial sweeteners, should I avoid them completely?

I recommend you read "Sweet Deception" http://www.diabeticconnect.com/books/63-sweet-deception-why-splenda-nutrasweet-and-the-fda-may-be-hazardous-to-your-health
It will give you insight to the craziness that the FDA does.
I also watched a DVD called "Sweet Misery" That opened my eyes. Once I saw that, I removed artificial sweeteners from my cupboards. I quit drinking diet sodas and I was amazed at how much better I felt. It was amazing!

The decision is yours, but educate yourself and make up your mind after that. I don't use them and it has made it hard to deal with foods that I like, but can't have because they are sweet. Since I was diagnosed, I have changed my food choices to be more natural, organic, and raw. Not that I am 100% that way, but it is always on my mind.
