Artificial Sweeteners May Cause More Harm Than Benefits

A new research report has stated that consuming artificial sweeteners may be harmful for health.

The artificial sweeteners approved by US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) such as neotame, advantame, saccharine, aspartame, acesulfame potassium-k and sucralose was found to toxic when exposed to genetically modified bioluminescent bacteria from E.coli. The promotion of artificial sweeteners had become controversial as it was linked to development of cancer, metabolic disorders and weight gain. The use of artificial sweeteners is increasing among sports persons and those suffering from diabetes.

With doubts and concerns raised about the use of artificial sweeteners, the regulatory authorities need to do more research and clarify on the risk-benefits associated with the use of these ingredients in food and supplements as a substitute for sugar consumed with confidence and enthusiasm should not end up as a nightmare for its consumers.
