I agree with you whole heartedly. But I also believe in showing different viewpoints. Government bodies and "special interest" groups and scaremongering "treehuggers" all have their own agendas. This is why I also post contradictory viewpoints. This way the reader has either more facts or less BS at the their disposal so they can weigh the pros & cons and make educated decisions themselves. You just like somebody on the other side both have your reasons for holding on to those ideas (your's may well be a valid one. Or, like DDT, a power play to support your own personal believes even though at the moment, the jury is still out.
Just because you say it doesn't make it so, same goes for me. But at least with multiple viewpoints then the reader can make their own choices.
This reminded me of the DDT crap that happened years ago (which I'm sure you were too young to remember - or may well not even been born yet) I was a young adult back then....

However, from my point of view, given a choice of continuing to take something that has be proven, without a doubt, to contribute to Obesity, Diabetes and a host of other ailments like sugar does, or take a chance with something that is sugar free and only possibly will cause tumors or other problems provided you give unrealistic massive doses. (nothing conclusively has actually been proven yet as all the studies show - only maybe, possibly or somesuch) I think I'll take the chance with Aspartame.
Of course the counter argument of "do you want to take a chance?" while also has merit, at the same time you "seemingly" condo
ne the consumption of large quantities of normal sugared coke which contributes to diabetes and morbid obesity and hosts of other problems as well and it well documented. (That's what you countered my statements with)I have a problem with that.
Anyway, this way our readers can judge for themselves.
Oh, one other thing. You should also print the same:
