It's a hell of a strategy - making people feel like dumb assholes for being concerned with their health.

That's what I was thinking when I saw it on TV....wow...shame on us for trying to not have artificial sweeteners.....I mean, why not say for every donut we don't buy, we kill a kid in Africa or something......we are just selfish selfish people, what about the stockholders of major corn corporations...or the people on the board at Kellogs...how are they going to tell their kids that they had to trade in the Mercedes for a Minivan....Oh the horror....because apparently, like sugar, it's ok in moderation....who says that in real life?
