You can see and hear my interview with The Skinny On Low Cal about the recent Dr. Oz Show that continued his misguided attack on low calorie sweeteners here: Myth-busting the Recent Dr. Oz segment on Low Calorie Sweeteners . Don’t be fooled by all his circus tricks. The published and peer-reviewed science says these sweeteners are safe and an effective tool for weight management when used as part of a balanced diet along with regular exercise. That is also the opinion of international food regulatory agencies and trusted health organizations including the American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Disclosure: I am a consultant to the Calorie Control Council, but all statements are my own.
