This stuff is in everything. My mom is big on diet drinks and "low calorie" foods, and that crap is in all of it. It's a wonder that she
isn't completely schizophrenic by now.
I refuse to touch the stuff. I don't consume any "artificial sweeteners" if I can help it, none whatsoever. I just use sugar in moderation, which
is perfectly fine for most people. I also don't touch anything with mono-sodium glutamate (MSG), among other things.
Basically, rule of thumb, if the product looks like it is marketed to idiots, i.e. flashy colors, bold claims, stupid labels, etc., then I stay away.
The biggest indicators are the bizarre 'flavors', that aren't even flavors. Like for gum, "Arctic Chill" or "Cool Blast", or "Fruit
Fiesta"... it's all *snip* ridiculous. None of these are flavors, they just couldn't make anything taste right with their toxic chemicals so they
just decide to make *snip* up as they go along.
