I have a question for you, my very knowledgeable friends. I don’t like the taste of artificial sweeteners, nor do I even like the taste of corn syrup. I like good old-fashioned cane sugar. I’m old enough to live with that decision.
Am I making a mistake, though, when I sweeten my children’s tea or home-made smoothies with cane sugar? We have sucralose in the house, but I just can’t make myself use it. Am I consigning my children to a lifetime of obesity? Am I preventing them from a lifetime of cancer?
What’s the story here? Incidentally, I’m asking you guys, because there is way too much information out on the internet. I can find massive amounts of material supporting both points of view, which leaves me no better off than I was when I started.
