Will Splenda kill you?

One of the interesting things about a running a social news site is that you get an early warning system about not only breaking news, but also what people care about. Yesterday a story about Splenda from a questionable source made it to the home page. People are alarmed and the story has 36 votes and 42 comments already… our Anchors and Navigators are investigating the story.

It seems a lot of folks are really concerned about Splenda and we’ve mobilized dozens of folks at Netscape (users and staff) to investigate the issue.
