Artificial Sweetners and Your Health- I Might have Been Wrong about this One!

Over the past decade I have been ridiculed on several occasions for my perceived ambivalence about artificial sweeteners. My stance on them has been as follows: “If they keep you away from excess sugar then I have no problem with their occasional use.”  The advent of Stevia and its cousins in the past few years, have made that even less likely, but again the choice has been left up to the individual, at least by me.

Now of course depending on where you are in the country or the world you may have longer days and warmer weather long before the 21st of June.
