The study found that:
(a) Those that had used artificial sweeteners for only a short time had a 10% increase in urinary tract tumors compared to those who were non-users.
(b) Those that had used artificial sweeteners for more than ten years had a 118% increase in urinary tract tumors compared to those who were non-users.
To conclude: Regular use of artificial sweeteners for 10 years or more is positively associated with urinary tract tumors.

Recipe of the day
|Food Mall: Trout|
3/4 tsp. lemon and pepper spice
1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
Preheat oven to 350F. Heat oil with lemon juice in a shallow pan. Coat both sides of fillets with this mix. Lay fillets side by side, overlapping slightly if necessary, in a pan. Mix spices together, and sprinkle over fillets. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on size of fillets and type of fish (catfish bakes the longest). Also, the pan may blacken, but that's fine, the liquid will keep the fish moist. Serve immediately.
