In brief: Great Question

In the days of the caveman there was probably much trial and error. Today we have the fda.
Unfortunately this in no way is a full proof system.... Just look at today's obesity and type 2 diabetes epidemic. There are a number of artificial sweeteners cleared by the fda that we now know are about 10 times more fattening than sugar. I am on the medical advisory board of new cutting edge research.
