Artificial sweeteners not so sweet
Here is a Purdue study from a few years back about the negative implications of artificial sweeteners. The study is definitely food for thought, and while one shouldn't necessarily eliminate all sugar free snacks in favor of their sugared counterparts, we should be mindful of the potential negative effect of artificial sweeteners. Cutting back on junky snacks, in general, whether sugar free or not, in favor of a more nutritious choice would be the best decision.
