I enjoy writing every article, it’s a passion of mine. But there are some subjects I really really enjoy! Artificial sweeteners are one of those subjects. (I know, I’m sad!)
So, the question is are artificial sweeteners safe? The word ARTIFICIAL doesn’t give me a lot of confidence. Plastic food springs to mind. In this post, I’ll show you some past and recent research, also the short term and long term health problems. We will cover what the artificial ingredients are in sugar substitutes.
You will see which brand names are selling low-calorie sweeteners. You can then decide yourselves when you see the evidence if these alternatives to sugar really are as safe as the government says they are.
History of Human Madness
The definition of insanity; repeating the same thing over and over expecting a different result. Albert Einstein.
We humans certainly take this to another level. When the Victorians found they had an Opium addiction problem they made a less stronger version this was called ‘HEROIN’. Now there’s Morphine, Opioids and Methadone. Has this worked? No but it has increased addiction levels, only this time they’ve added prescribed drugs as well.
When smoking was deemed bad alternatives were made that still pumped nicotine into the system. So now people vape, and think it’s safe. Get people to stop smoking cigs and get them smoking a vape machine, and tell them it’s not smoking! Also the new customers in the loop are children who now think it’s safe as well.
I look at Sugar and Artificial Sweeteners in much the same way.
