I'd put sugar into my body ANY DAY than that crappola.
With the "sugar is bad for you" mantra, the artificial sweeteners are making a dangerous claim and society will pay a very high price for that mentality.
The worst for sure would the man-made ones....
Anything that triggers an insulin response and it cannot be used will eventually be a problem for those of us who are not diabetic.
Do I say eat a lot of sugar? NO....but any who perceive they aren't taking in sugar (remember, it's a bad word to many) will surely increase the intake of that product ten-fold.
Sugar anyday....it's a "gooder" thing, but natural sugar in fruits, etc is "more gooder"
