In brief: Real vs artificial
Splenda is an artficial sweetener, no calories, won't cause cavities, probably more expensive.
It's not that ld, so there's no 20-30 year follow up, which would be the timeframe for cancer in humans. But in mice it's probably very safe or the fda wou;dn't have allowed it.
