Sucralose Manufacturers Banning Uk Visitors From "danger" Info - the real enigma - 06-03-2007

Hi, just came across something a bit strange. After investigating the dangers and effects of Sucralose and with search results i conferred on well known site i have received the following message on the page ""Attorneys acting on behalf of the manufacturers of sucralose, Tate & Lyle PLC based in London, England, have requested that the information contained on this page not be made available to Internet users in England."
Now I wanna wonder why i cant access this info so i contacted and the manufacturers of sucralose "tate and lyle" and awaiting an update.
This is the mercola website link which gave the above message:-
(note you may be able to view it if you're not from the UK, and if you can contact me asap)
And the tate and lyle contact link:-;selGeography=

Dear ......,

We are aware of the statement made by Dr Mercola on his web site. In fact, the statement is incorrect.

We wrote to Dr Mercola asking him to correct a number of statements on his web site about sucralose which are wrong. Dr Mercola initially responded to us, through his US lawyers, stating that he would correct any incorrect information on his site. He then took the decision to block access to the site to people with UK IP addresses and took this action without our knowledge. All people from the UK visiting the site now see the statement to which you refer.

In fact, neither Tate & Lyle nor its lawyers requested this action. On learning of this, we wrote again to Dr Mercola asking him to correct the statement that alleges this action was as a result of a request from our lawyers. Despite two letters, we have not received a response from Dr Mercola and he has not allowed access again for UK visitors. He has also not corrected the many errors on his web site. We continue to press Dr Mercola and his lawyers for a response and for the correction of these errors.

Tate & Lyle said in its letter to Dr Mercola that it takes no issues with anyone expressing opinions about its products, provided these are founded on scientific facts. Dr Mercola’s claims unfortunately are not. We are disappointed that a health professional does not wish to ensure the public are accurately informed about our product.

If you have any further questions regarding the action taken by Dr Mercola in this matter then we recommend that you take this up with Dr Mercola himself.

For the scientific facts on sucralose we recommend you visit

Kind regards,

NOTE:- Even though they have stated the above, I will never ever touch any artificial sweetner product from any company, there is too much evidence against them.
