It's been a while since I posted any blogs, kind of taking it easy these last few weeks and getting back to basics. However, an important blog post by a writer at healthfreedoms.org flew across my computer screen a few minutes ago highlighting the dangers of drinking diet soft drinks. I have written on this topic before - click on the post categorized under "artificial sweeteners" under Categories on the right hand column. I am reposting about it because I think that most people are under the illusion that artificial sweeteners are not only "not bad" for you, but that some people believe them to be GOOD for you.
Unfortunately, we don't really know as they've only been on the market in such high use for 10-20 years. Check out my post from September on the topic as well as the healthfreedoms.org blog post. It will definitely make you think a little before picking up that next can of Diet Whatever. http://healthfreedoms.org/2011/12/12/8-dangers-of-diet-soda/
