Clearly more empirical analysis is required. However, there is room for serious concern. We already know that there are very high risks associated with sugary drinks but we are now left with the concern that artificially sweetened drinks could be just as dangerous.

The soft drinks industry has a powerful lobby. Just look at any supermarket, soft drinks are big business.

Sadly, governments seem to be behind the curve in promoting healthy food and drink.

Thoughts?
