Artificial Sweeteners

Aspartame

Aspartame is a low-calorie sweetener that has been used since the 1980s. It is 180 times sweeter than sugar, so it can be used in very small amounts. However, aspartame is associated with many negative health effects. Studies have shown that Aspartame can cause headaches and dizziness in some people who consume it regularly at high doses. There is also evidence that it may increase your risk of developing cancer due to its link with brain tumors in rats.

Acesulfame Potassium (Ace-K)

Acesulfame Potassium, also known as Ace-K, is an artificial sweetener that is about 200 times sweeter than table sugar. It was approved for use in the United States in 1988 and has been linked to numerous negative health effects such as cancer, brain damage and heart disease.

The most common side effects of Acesulfame Potassium include headaches, dizziness and nausea.

Sucralose

Sucralose is one of the most common artificial sweeteners on the market. However, Sucralose has been linked to cancer in rats so it may not be safe for consumption by humans. In addition, studies indicate that sucralose affects gut bacteria in ways that could potentially contribute to obesity or diabetes.
