You've been conned for years, maybe even decades -- and it's not your fault.
Perhaps you thought you'd been making a healthier choice by substituting those friendly little blue, pink and yellow packets for sugar (particularly if you're a dieter with a sweet tooth).
Today, you find artificial sweeteners in everything from yogurt to baked goods. Big business continues to tell you that they're "sugar-free", they're "a healthy alternative to sugar".
Tragically, the truth is this: artificial sweeteners such as Splenda and Nutrasweet are NOT healthy -- or safe.
