I remember when they said watching color tv would cause cancer. Then it was chicken. Then it was bacon. Meanwhile, ppl are living longer than in generations past. My theory is, I'll do and eat what I want - in moderation. We're all gonna leave this planet some day -- so in the end, SOMETHING will kill us.

Isn't that 60 Minute Show the one that strapped extra gasoline to a pickup truck to show how dangerous the fire issue was with it. If I remember correctly they also did a ultralight aircraft show where their pilot died when they had him doing things that any sane person wouldn't do in a aircraft and blamed it on ultralight safety? The media doesn't care about truth, they only care about the bottom line. Take this post with a grain of salt also!

Well I'm a big sceptic for alot of things, but sugar is one thing I do feel should be limited. On an evolutionary basis we humans evolved to eat very little sugar (sugar in extremely rare in nature), and I do feel our modern excess of sugar feeds alot of problems. My mother and grandmother are/were both diabetic so I started testing my own blood sugar several years ago and have eliminated any non-natural sources from my diet. I find the sweet from natural fruits is more than enough for me.

1/2 cup honey = 1 cup sugar. This is not possible. You can never get out more than you put in. It would be like saying half pound honey = one pound of sugar. Regarding sugar though, I am trying to limit it since that 60 min. article came out. Sugar is a natural product, unlike Splenda or aspartame. The artificial stuff makes me even more nervous in the long run. Like stated earlier, moderation is key.

That might apply to physics and energy but try eating 1 pound of something containing 20,000 calories and deny gaining 5 lbs after eating only 1 pound. The poster is saying that 1/2 cup of honey produces the sweetness content of 1 cup of sugar.

I'm with you. I can't stand the after-taste of any of the artificial sweeteners or substitutes.

I've also heard of use of the artificial sweeteners causing joint pain. A friend was having all kinds of problems. Quit drinking the diet drinks and the problems with their joints stopped.

We all have our opinions of what we use, no matter what it is. To each his own.

That's great, providing you don't get too fat or sick to remain merry.
