Are sweetners bad for children????!

Question: Are sweetners bad for children!?!?!?!?
in my opinion, yes, they are bad for anybody!. Not only children!. Use only natural sweeteners if you must!. Keep kids away from artificial sweeteners!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

"As a rule, products with sweeteners should be given in moderation to children under the age of four years old!. If you're giving them squash, for example, it's important to dilute it more than you would for an adult, so they don't consume large amounts of sweeteners!.

Useful points about sweeteners:

Aspartame is also known as Nutrasweet!.
As sweeteners go, aspartame has got a controversial history!. Some studies suggested a potential link to brain tumours, but no conclusive scientific evidence has been found!.
Saccharin is one of the oldest artificial sweeteners!. It's also been controversial, but it is endorsed by the World Health Organisation as being safe!.
Sorbitol has a laxative effect if consumed in large quantities!.
Acesulfame-K is about 200 times sweeter than sucrose!.
Artificial sweeteners can sometimes trigger allergic reactions, such as hives!.
People with a sensitivity to MSG may react to aspartame!.
Infants who suffer from phenylketonuria (PKU), a rare genetic disease, shouldn't consume aspartame!. "

Well I was born with a disease called PKU its a shortening for a long word that I couldnt even begin to spell and every baby when it is born is tested for it and it is very rare but babies are born with it like me!. I can not have sweeteners like NutraSweet and stuff like that because of the ingerdients and my moms doctor told her that she should not let my siblings have them either because they are not good for them and I think he told her they were not good for the brain!. But I can not have it because of PKUWww@FoodAQ@Com
