Is it safe to use erythritol in place of sugar?

I wonder about the safety of it, too.
I do think it would not be as favorable a choice as, say, Stevia; but I believe it would be "better than" aspartame stuffs. I assume they're all bad (except Stevia, in my opinion); and I do know Dr. Fuhrman does not recommend any sweetener subs.

Those alcohol sugars cause diarrhea in large amounts, as well.
