There's no evidence that either sucralose nor acesulfame potassium pose any threat to human health:

You do want to limit your intake; the FDA has set a guideline to determine your acceptable daily intake for sweeteners like Sucralose.

"The FDA reviewed studies in human beings and animals and determined that sucralose did not pose carcinogenic, reproductive, or neurological risk to human beings. The acceptable daily intake (ADI) for sucralose was set at 5 mg/kg of body weight/day. To determine your ADI, divide your weight in pound by 2.2 and then multiply it by 50. For example, if you weigh 200 lbs., your weight in kg would be 91 (200 divided by 2.2) and your ADI for sucralose would be 455 mg (91 x 5)."

Enjoy your soda, but make sure you limit your intake and aim to get plenty of actual water. :)

I'm not familiar with this product, but I'd be very skeptical that it's going to help you lose weight and keep it off long term. Stick with a healthy diet and regular exercise, and skip the supplements. That's better for your health and your wallet in the long run.

Hope that helps,

Not making any comments on this article one way or the other, but an opinion you may wish to read.

ETA: Actually, this particular article makes a lot of unsubstantiated claims, so "buyer beware"

Here's another article, which may give a little better info, but, it seems like someone doing self-promotion for "her" way of eating, so, again use your discretion in sorting through the info:

I have never heard this specific claim before but I know that drinking excessive amounts of diet soda is not good for you on so many levels. I personally don't drink it anymore. A choice I made years ago, because of other health problems and a desire to become as healthy as I could. Soda, whether diet or not has no nutritional value and in large quantities can be harmful.

I started drinking this a few weeks ago and Im starting to wonder if it will mess with hormones and such? I read that it can and cause delay in menstration, or even making one miss it. Anyone else heard if this myth is true or not?
