So...excuse my ignorance...but what they're saying is that artificially sweetened milk is healthier than naturally sweetened milk because it would be lower in calories? Meaning aspartame is healthier than plain old sugar because of the lower calorie content?

Salt suffers from the same black eye. Calling cake unhealthy because it contains sugar is a lot like calling a Big Mac unhealthy because it contains red meat. Isn't that what people with agendas do? Sure, sugar is unhealthy if you consume more than your body can handle in a sitting, but that goes for EVERYTHING including water, air and sunlight.
A high calorie diet can be much healthier than a low calorie diet. A diet rich in butter, eggs, beef and potatoes consumed in a caloric surplus would make you overweight, but it'll be MUCH healthier than an underweight individual starving themselves on a diet of Lean Pockets, bagels and fat free cream cheese. Good God. You can be chubby and healthy and you can be ripped and a ticking timebomb.
