SWEET POISON

I searched this on the internet and it seems that sweetners are extremely poisonous to our systems and cancer causing. Is there any truth in it?

Thank you

Dear Bob's Girlfriend
According to international nutrition organisations the artificial sweetener, aspartame has been declared 'safe for human consumption' so the amounts you list should not cause problems. Individuals who ingest very large quantities (e.g. drinking many litres of artificially sweetened cold drinks every day) may be exposing themselves to such high quantities that this could cause as yet unidentified problems. Let moderation be the key.
Best regards
