Not neutral. yYou MUST present an opinion which shows a clear position. However, you can present a balanced approach. This does not mean sitting on the fence, it means having a view which only partially agrees – it’s like your own specific opinion.

Q: Should I substitute artificial sweeteners for sugar to satisfy my sweet tooth?
A: The latest studies on common artificial sweeteners such saccharine, sucralose and aspartame suggest that these products may actually be putting us at risk for the same metabolic diseases and weight gain that added sugars do. These products appear to damage beneficial bacteria in the gut, leading to glucose intolerance, a contributor to chronic disease.

Can scribble leads to less score in writing task? Please reply.

Q: Are there any healthier forms of added sugar? Honey, perhaps?
A: Unlike table sugar and high-fructose corn syrup — by far the most commonly used added sweeteners in America — honey contains nutritional compounds and antioxidants that may be protective for metabolic health and related disease outcomes, such as heart disease. So within the reasonable daily limits noted above, there may be health reasons to opt for honey.

Hi Liz,
Is it absolutely necessary not to use the same words from the question in paraphrasing the question statement? Or you can use some words like in your intro where you used the phrase “some people think that” which was already used in the question statement. Paraphrasing eats up a lot of my time so I was think may be I could copy some part of it instead coming up with words to use.

In polarized public debates, science often gets caught in the middle. This is all too true for research on the health effects of sugar. Who funds the research can influence what researchers report, even when the studies are peer-reviewed and published in reputable scientific journals. Thus a found that studies conducted by industry-funded researchers were five times as likely as others to report that sugary drinks have no relationship to obesity. At SugarScience, we’ve had to adjust to this unfortunate reality by having our medical librarians carefully scrutinize sources for scientific conflicts of interest.
