Dear Blossom
There is much controversy about sweetners - most articles I read said that if you take it in low doses ( i.e. not more than 8 sweetner tablets per day) you should not get any problems from it. However, it has been shown that it actually in some cases causes cravings. I would say if you want to use them - stay with moderate to low use.
