I posted a discussion on Diet Coke a few weeks ago and got a lot of responses. Here is a follow up one since I got comments from my family as well.
My wife (the scientist) told me there is more scientifically proven evidence that washing fruits and vegetables will prevent illness than there is scientific evidence that aspartame or other artificial sweeteners are bad for you.
Being that she does cancer research for a living - her definition of "scientifically proven" is a little different than mine. But I did a quick search online and I couldn't find anything that didn't come from someone eventually trying to sell me something. Which - if you've seen my other posts - I don't believe anyone who is really only trying to sell me something. If they want your money - they probably aren't telling the truth.
Does anyone have any links from real scientific journals that proves artificial sweeteners are bad for you? Preferably ones that contain info about the studies performed, peer reviewed and repeated. I'd love to prove my wife wrong for once :)
