Fortunately, other non-governmental studies have been completed and the results have shown that Sucralose is responsible for a variety of ailments: headaches, blurred vision, short-term dizziness, and more serious long term effects such as depression and weight gain. There are other effects associated with splenda consumption as well, such as:

* Skin breaking out in hives or rashes
* Shortness of breath
* Swelling of facial muscles
* Eye irritation
* Joint pains
* General sensation of anxiety in a number of consumers

Although Splenda is considered the “better” of the unhealthy family (Sweet N Low, Equal, etc) it is still not considered safe. Many doctors will not allow pregnant or nursing women to consume these artificial sweeteners. A better alternative is anything from the “healthy family” such as Truvia, Stevia, or Xylitol. These are made from a plant, not a chemical. These are more expensive and can be found in health food stores, and some supermarkets.

Some additional side effects of splenda, which I do not have studies on, but are based on my clients’ reports, are craving sugar and a bloated midsection. Several of my clients reported that within a week of abandoning all artificial sweeteners, their abdominal area felt much more “flat.”

Keep in mind that even if you give up your splenda packets in your cappuccino or your cooking, it can still be found in many other products. Some of these include ices (especially “diet” ices), low fat muffins, syrups, and diet beverages.

If you don’t want to go extreme, cut BACK versus completely cutting OUT. An easy way to start is to carry around in your purse some truvia or stevia packets and ask your barista or waiter to put those in instead of artificial sweeteners (I do this).

Hope this clarified your splenda dilemma!

We peel away one layer after the next, our eyes tear up and it becomes harder and harder to see as we get closer to our innermost insecurities and fears.

Some Mountain Jews believe they are descendents of the Ten Lost Tribes and were exiled to Azerbaijan and Dagestan by Sancheriv.

Yom Tov is about spending time with your family. And while for some families the big once-in-a-lifetime experience is great, for others something low key is the way to go.

A fascinating glimpse into the rich complexity of medieval Jewish life and its contemporary relevance had intriguingly emerged.

Dear Dr. Yael:

My heart is breaking; my husband’s friend has gotten divorced. While this type of situation is always sad, here I do believe it could have been avoided.

The plan’s goal is to provide supportive housing to 200 individuals with disabilities by the year 2020.

Despite being one of the fastest-growing Jewish communities in the U.S. – the estimated Jewish population is 70-80,000 – Las Vegas has long been overlooked by much of the Torah world.

She was followed by the shadows of the Six Million, by the ever so subtle awareness of their vanished presence.

Pesach is so liberating (if you excuse the expression). It’s the only time I can eat anywhere in the house, guilt free! Matzah in bed!

Now all the pain, fear and struggle were over and they were home. Yuli was safe and free, a hero returned to his land and people.

While it would seem from his question that he is being chuzpadik and dismissive, I wonder if its possible, if just maybe, he is a struggling, confused neshama who actually wants to come back to the fold.

I agree with the letter writer that a shadchan should respectfully and graciously accept a negative response to a shidduch offer.

Dear Tanya,

There are some diet delivery services that are kosher. Do you recommend I try them? In the past, one of the reasons I had a hard time sticking to a diet was because I hate preparing for myself, and when life gets hectic I just don’t have the time.
