I've heard these all ....Splenda is made with bleach/aspartem is a neuro-toxin/sacharin(spelling
) is a cancer causing agent....
I recently joined Weight Watchers and I wanted to jump up and scream in the meeting today "we don't need
to use artifical sweetners to lose weight". I've adjusted the points when using the 'regular' foods, but all the 'diet' food just irks me to no end. I may not be dropping pounds as fast as the others but I still lost 5.8 pounds in three weeks...not too bad...and I did it with regular foods that my family also ate and enjoyed. Maybe I'm just paranoid. I quit smoking cuz of the risks, and I don't want to trade one unhealthy thing for another. Don't want to look like a model, just striving for a healthier way of life for me and mine.:angryfire Thanks for listening. I just had to vent. Also please forgive my spelling. One day I promise to learn how to spell or at the very least get off my lazy bumm and look it up.
