Artificial sweeteners linked to diabetes and obesity

The key word in all of this is artificial. Artificial is defined by The Oxford English Dictionary as, made or produced by human beings rather than occurring naturally, especially as a copy of something natural. Logic tells me anything made “as a copy of something natural” is just that, a copy. The food industry is massive chemistry experiment. We are consuming vast mounts of artificial sweeteners, flavourings and colours without really understanding the long-term consequences they have on our bodies. That’s not entirely true. We know we’re getting fatter.
