Artificial sweetener Saccharin safe for human consumption

(WFLX) - Regulators say they got it wrong when they put the artificial sweetener Saccharin on a list of potentially hazardous substances.

For 30 years, the sweetener has carried warnings after studies showed it caused cancer in rats.

After reviewing later studies, the Environmental Protection Agency has changed its mind and says there is not a danger to humans.
