If you read some blogs or diet books you might think that artificial sweeteners are the biggest threat to your health out there. It's very popular to get on the ' artificial sweeteners are dangerous' bandwagon.
Think about it for a minute. Soda companies have very deep pockets, and if artificial sweeteners were really that dangerous to your health, wouldn't every other add on TV be something like:
"This is Steve Smith, Esquire. Have you or anyone you know lost a loved one because they drank too much diet soda? I know I drank too much and I am dead. One of my associates would be happy to make you rich if only you would call 555-1212."
Why don't we see these ads? Maybe artificial sweeteners aren't really that bad for you. Maybe that is why there are no studies out there with hard proof.
I will continue to be happy there are artificial sweeteners out there!
