Splenda Side Effects and C Diff (what not to eat)

I never would have predicted it, but it looks like Splenda/sucralose could be a big no no for anyone worried about C Diff. According to Neo-Paleolithic-Diet.com [1], “How would you like to reduce your normal flora by 50%?” The study sited there suggests that Splenda reduces the amount of “good bacteria” in your gut. The whole problem with C Diff is the overgrowth of bad bacteria killing the good bacteria. So, for me, if there is any chance that Splenda kills my good bacteria, I think I’ll avoid it.
