Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Saccharin derivatives give cancer cells a not-so-sweet surprise

Saccharin received a bad rap after studies in the 1970s linked consumption of large amounts of the artificial sweetener to bladder cancer in laboratory rats.

Now, researchers have made artificial sweetener derivatives that show improved activity against two tumor-associated enzymes.
