I wouldn't be surprised if there are differences in the way that various 
artificial sweeteners affect you. While I can't speak for Splenda [TM], 
there's a fair amount of research on aspartame in particular that is 
quite horrifying - especially when considering the speed with which it 
was approved by the FDA... Kind of makes one wonder how well the FDA is 
'protecting the consumer' in other respects.
