Dr. Oz: Should You Use Natural Sugar or Artificial Sweeteners?

Doctor Oz was asked a question by Joel David Moore from the movie Avatar. Moore wanted to know if Dr. Oz preferred for people to use natural sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Dr. Oz said that there are only 15 calories in 1 tsp of sugar, and he prefers for us to eat small amounts of real sugar than to use artificial sweeteners.  We haven’t been able to prove that artificial sweeteners cause cancer, however Dr. Oz says that artificial sweeteners send your brain mixed messages and triggers hunger.
