Every single day we are faced with controversies, debates and choices that effect our moral values and desires. Most people are weight conscious and others are health conscious, although similar, they must be distinguished as their views regarding the hot debate of use of artificial sweeteners vs. Regular sugar differs drastically. As you enter aisle 5 in the super market, you may notice that there is regular coke and diet coke. When reading the nutrition labels, diet coke contains 0 grams of sugar and 0 calories. The idea of a coke that tastes exactly like the regular version being sugar free and calorie free, the offer just seems too good to pass. But what most people don’t know is that the products that are claimed to be sugar free actually contain artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and saccharin. These are chemicals that can have negative effects on our bodies and thus the debate of what is more harmful begins.
