Sugar rant

Well, I have to say it. I hate fake sugar! I think it is absolutely disgusting, and it makes my head hurt. I have yet to eat something that was improved by the addition of fake sugar, and frankly, I would rather go without than be bothered suffering through the torture of eating an artificial sugared dessert.
I realise that some people eat these sugars due to diabetes or a weight loss plan(or probably numerous other reasons), but I can only feel sorry for them. Aspertame, sucralose, whatever....yuck!!!! Apparently Splenda isn't such a bad thing- it's just super-processed sugar? Can't help it- ugghhh!!! How many super-processed, chemical-full foods can we eat without something happening to our bodies? I think that it's bad enough that I use regular old refined white sugar. I should be using cane sugar or maple syrup!
I read an article in a science mag. once about how aspertame was actually invented as a bio-toxin. People feed this to their children!
