Interesting- however, the symptoms are too general and broad which can include a majority of society.

Thanks for the information.

I am not at all surprised at this, what most concerns me about our water is not what they say is in it but what they choose NOT to say is in the water. There are minimums of a list of oocytes, minerals, contaminants of every type and source, animal feces, animal afterbirth, animal decay, and more which is in ground water.

( my mind, add to that many children with autism...adults with so many diseases....chlorine...3 molecules..mind as well drink bleach)....and kudos to "past member" for your comments...WE NEED TO MASSIVELY PETITION ON THIS ISSUE AND GET THE ACCURATE AND SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION OUT THERE!!...and for goodness sake, stop drinking soda pop!! (sorry if you like it, but it is killing you.)

One more pollutant--it's a wonder we're still drinking our water, and not chewing it!!

I can't believe it! Why are you Americans letting the FDA get away with these TOTALLY SHODDY RESULTS? It looks like they were getting paid by Splenda. Our country looks to your for some guidance from the FDA but this makes me SICK. Who gave them that power? Were they voted in? What are YOU going to do about this? If they can't be trusted for genuine testing procedures then your food chain is in the *******?

I hate artificial sweeteners. Thanks for info.

If true it is very sad. I do know that Splenda runs right through me, and I have not had it more than once or twice.
