I read an interesting article on The Guardian the other day. Besides being propaganda for Michelle Obama, it told of an experiment with pandas.
Pandas, apparently, like sweet stuff, although sweet is not in their diet; they prefer the more mundane bamboo.
The Pandas didn’t like the Pepsi Max.
Pandas don’t like aspartame, the sweetener in Pepsi Max.
Doesn’t that tell you something?
It sure rings alarm bells for me.
If pandas don’t like the taste of aspartame, incidentally neither do I, then there must be something in it that tells them it’s not good for them.
From a personal level, ALL artificial sweeteners set my teeth on edge so I stay away from them.
Similarly, now that most soft drinks (sodas) contain HFCS instead of sugar, I stay away from them all.
So should you!
