Have you talked to your Dr. about this? There are always tons of rumors going around that it's hard to know what to believe.

I haven't heard of this. However even with my diabetes well under control and not using real sugar but drinking lots of diet cola and using sweet n Low I had to have a triple bypass. The doctor said it was because in diabetics any sugar in the blood causes it to flow slower allowing the sugars to cling to the arteries. Since then I have stopped using artificial sweeteners and no longer drink any cola products.
