We live in an artificial world, and that includes artificial sugars. How many times a day do you hear of someone ordering a diet soft-drink? The thinking is that because it is an artificial sugar, such as Aspartame, Splenda, Equal and Saccarin you won’t gain weight, that it is good for you. Did you know that Saccarin was discovered when a researchers were working on coal tar derivatives. Saccharin is also known as Sweet and Low, Sweet Twin, Sweet’N Low, and Necta Sweet. Medicine Net
Now a lot of companies who manufacture these chemical sugar substitutes bang their drums loudly telling us how safe there products are. Personally, I’ll take the natural sugars.

BUT, even with natural sugars, you must be careful. Moderation in paramount when it comes to any sugar intake. How much is too much? As a general rule, less is better!
