Artificial Sweetners—BAD NEWS!!!
Me? I'm a sugar guy--and as always in moderation. I've never liked diet drinks--to me they leave an nasty after taste, and now I'm being vindicated in my dislike of diet drink and artificial sweeteners. This includes Sweet-N-Low, Equal, and Splenda. According to a new study, artificial sweeteners may do more harm than good. To be honest I can't even remember the last time I even tasted Diet Coke. The ONLY diet drink I can tolerate is Diet Doctor Pepper. For some reason that stuff is ok.
Researchers found that folks who regularly drink the diet drinks with those artificial sweetners have an increased risk for such problems as excessive weight gain, type 2 diabetes, and even some heart disease.
Keep in mind here … This isn’t from the regular old sugar-flavored sodas--the only kind I drink. These scary warnings come from the diet stuff.
