Correct: Schweppes Diet Tonic water is sweetened by saccharin! Shockingly there is no longer a cancer warning on the label.

They must have assumed that considering quinine is bitter they wouldn't have to worry about saccharin's offensive taste. But shit, it's almost undrinkable. :mad:

Saccharin is safe. The tests that showed it causing cancer in rats were found to be flawed.

When did it get removed from labels?

Those warnings used to be HUGE.

I didn't notice they went away mainly because noone uses saccharin anymore, except cheap fucks like schweppes who think no one can taste it.

Not sure exactly when but they found that there was something about the biology of rats that caused the cancer that didn't translate to humans. Also they fed the rats many thousands of times as much a dose as humans could possibly have.

Aspartame is much worse than saccharin and it's in everything. :aww:

This. Its not that saccharin became safer, its just that the other shit they use now is a lot worse. They basically just moved the goalposts. The FDA is a joke.

Sucralose is one to watch out for.

That's because saccharin doesn't cause cancer. That was one of the first in a long series of Jew-media health scares.

OLG - why are you worried about this versus all the health related issues that you being a FAT ASS bring?

In a December 14, 2010 release, the EPA stated that saccharin is no longer considered a potential hazard to human health.[23]

Guess. I'll give a hint after 5 incorrect guesses.

I wish Tab was still made with saccharin. The cancer warning was bullshit by the way, that's why it's finally gone.

I'd worry more about Aspartame and Sucralose. They haven't been through nearly as much testing, especially the former.

I don't think the sell Canada Dry quinine water anymore. I used to sneak some when I was a kid, my dad used it to make highballs. For some reason I liked the taste.

You misunderstand. It's a matter of flavor. They added saccharin because it is cheap, and Tonic water is bitter. But tonic water is also supposed to be sweet too. This shit is nasty.

What's worse, artificial sweetner technology has never been better. Aspartame combined with Asulfame Potassium tastes almost exactly like sugar. Most diet drinks use this combination now.
