Artificial Sweeteners Are Safe?

Artificial sweeteners have been shown over and over to stimulate your appetite, increase carbohydrate cravings, and make you gain fat and weight. But where are artificial sweeteners found?

One of the most popular items with artificial sweeteners is diet soda. They claim they are diet because they have less calories because they do not use HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) or other sugars. Diet sodas are said to double your risk of obesity.

A few more sources are: instant breakfasts, breath mints, cereals, sugar-free chewing gum, cocoa mixes, frozen desserts, gelatin desserts, juices, laxatives, chewable vitamins supplements, milk drinks, pharmaceutical drugs and supplements, shake mixes, table top sweeteners, teas, instant coffees, topping mixes, wine coolers and yogurt.

While looking at the ingredients list, keep an eye out for the following: sucralose, saccharin, aspartame, and acesulfame potassium.

  • Sucralose (Splenda) appears to change the balance or microorganisms in your gut in an unhealthy way. It also is associated with many of the same adverse reactions as aspartame.
  • Saccharin (Sweet’N Low) showed a highly increased rate in bladder cancer in test mice, and is generally labeled as ‘the safest‘ of the sweeteners. Do not be fooled by this.
  • Aspartame (Nutrasweet and Equal) is said to be carcinogenic and causes many adverse reactions.
  • Acesulfame potassium (Acesulfame-K) is thought to cause kidney problems.

Be careful what you consume. Neotame, a highly dangerous artificial sweetener, does not even need to be included on labeling at this time.
