Define bad for you: Anything can have side effects, even too much clean water. Artificial sweeteners are just that....Artificial. They don't belong in your body. Stevia is a plant extract that can be used as an "artificial" sweetener that may have less issues. Some people seem to tolerate artificial sweeteners without any problems, others get massive side effects. Choose your poisons carefully!
