Is consuming peppermint sweets bad for you?

As my husband reprimands me most of the time about this habit. He has heard a rumour that it bad for your health.

BB I know that to much sugar is bad for you I often eat health peppermint sweets which are sugar free and we still argue about the fact. That it is not good for your health

Eating to much of anything is bad for you. All that sugar, cannot be healthy. I drik a lot of Rooibos Tea with peppermint leaves in them. Sometimes I chew the leaves...love it, but not the sweets.

Too many sweets of any kind are not good for one, though the dangers (sic!) of sugar are frequently over-exaggerated. Peppermint, however, has many proven uses and is particularly good for upset tummies and flatulence! There are many websites dealing with peppermint - see the one below. When I gave up smoking - cold turkey - some 20+ years ago I replaced that habit with kilos and kilos of peppermints and they didn't do me any harm - for the past seven years I've been breathing someone else's oxygen and am still going strong!!
