We the CONSUMER want the choice of whether we consume sugar in our drinks. Aspartame can cause brain damage and was dangerous for people with PKU (Phenenlyketonuria), a genetic disease that causes people to be unable to break down phenylalanine. The other alternative Acesulfame K contains the carcinogen methylene chloride. Long-term exposure to methylene chloride can cause headaches, depression, nausea, mental confusion, liver effects, kidney effects, visual disturbances, and cancer in humans. 
Potential side effects linked to stevia consumption include:
Kidney damage. ...
Gastrointestinal symptoms. ...
Allergic reaction. ...
Hypoglycemia or low blood sugar. ...
Low blood pressure. ...
Endocrine disruption.

We want the choice whether we consume sugar in our drink and not to have sugar replaced by chemicals that are known to harm our bodies. Consumers are aware of the impact sugar has on their body but manufacturers have removed our choice to suit their needs and to make more profit. This needs to change! 
Labeling laws were designed to protect & empower consumers, arming them with the information necessary to make choices to protect themselves and their families.  Hidden ingredients of any kind put sensitive individuals at risk and violate all individual's rights to make fundamental personal choices regarding their own food supply.
