Recently someone told me that some are really bad for your liver and in large amounts not healthier than large amounts of sugar.

I haven’t had time to look up their sources, but it was a professor at uni who told them. Do you have any insight that I might be lacking?

Now I am not interested in stuff like the bogus aspartam rat studies, those weren’t any good.

I mostly believe that most artificial sweeteners are not very unhealthy and thus miles better than sugars. So drinks or food sweetened with it should be good imo.

    Look, I’m sure they’re not exactly good for you, but none of them come anywhere close to the death toll of sugar. People die every day from sugar, people don’t die every day from artificial sweeteners. The fact that the health effects of artificial sweeteners are merely “suspected” or “controversial”, vs every single doctor agreeing that sugar is one of the worst things you can put in your body, means that if it’s sugar or artificial sweetener, the latter is yay more preferable.
