Consumers Should Still Avoid Sucralose Pending More Testing

In 2016, the Center for Science in the Public Interest downgraded its safety rating of the artificial sweetener sucralose, the artificial sweetener in Splenda, from “caution” to “avoid” in the wake of the independent Ramazzini Institute’s findings that the chemical caused leukemia and related blood cancers in male mice. The European Food Safety Agency announced yesterday that it doesn’t think the available data support Ramazzini’s conclusions that sucralose causes those cancers.

FDA Denies Petition to Protect Consumers from Perchlorate

Consumers can’t avoid perchlorate on their own; we rely on officials at the Food and Drug Administration to keep chemicals like this out of our food. That’s why in 2014 the Natural Resources Defense Council, CSPI, and other health and environmental groups asked the FDA to ban perchlorate from food packaging, and in 2016 sued the agency for not acting.
