artificial sweeteners

The campaign against artificial sweeteners continues full speed ahead. And judging from the headlines these stories typically generate, it is smooth sailing. One of the newer tactics is based on a supposition that drinking diet soda actually makes you gain weight, rather than lose it. Except it s utter nonsense.
Not only are regular soft drinks (those sweetened by sugar) blamed for overeating and obesity, some studies have also pointed the finger at artificial sweeteners. But a new study, published in the journal Diabetes Care undermines such conclusions.
