This doesn't surprise me at all. Sugar is only bad for you in excess, this stuff is bad for you no matter how much of it you consume.

I hear people talking about Splenda, but that stuff was discovered accidentally while researchers were trying to come up with a new kind of anti-freeze for cars. Not exactly something I want to be putting in my coffee every morning (unless it's really cold outside I guess ).
That just scared the shyte out of me. I've never heard that before.

I stopped drinking Coke when I watched it eat the rust off a nail in school.
