LOL! I find it interesting that you vehemently put down all natural health supplements
as unsafe and unproven, yet here you defend an ARTIFICIAL sweetener!
Bottom line, like I said above:
If a person chooses to be part of an experiment by ingesting artificial sweeteners, that's fine. In 50 years the world will know the deal. But there is enough "evidence" at the moment to be cautious at the least, while avoidance is probably best.
