Feel free to chime in...
Well semantics aside, sugars are technically "chemicals" but I think what you're driving at is that artificial sweeteners are synthetically made, which for the most part is true except in the case of a select few.

As far as the second question goes, I would have to say yes, I think that replacing pure sugar with non-nutritive sweeteners is a better option for diabetics and pre-diabetics.
