🍬Artificial Sweeteners Cause Weight Gain, Cancer & Brain Death
Today I want to quickly talk about an ingredient that’s found in over 5000+ different products. Something that’s used primarily in “health” products, but ironically – it’s horrible for your health and that’s artificial sweeteners.
These “fake sugars” are:
Linked to Cancer
Cause weight gain
Neurotoxins to your brain
Raise insulin levels
Ironically, they increase your appetite and sugar cravings
Over the past few decades and years, artificial sweeteners have been linked to various forms of cancer.
The first artificial sweetener, Saccharin – was invented in 1879 by accident. Yet, it took almost 100 years (1970) before it was revealed that Saccharin was linked to bladder cancer.1,3 … With more research, scientist discovered that it also caused urinary, lung, stomach and reproductive tumors.4,5
Then came alone Aspartame (e.g., NutraSweet® and Equal®), which was linked to lymphoma, leukemia and brain cancer.1,6 And the negative effects of brain tumors happen even faster in children.7
And a few years ago (2002) Sucralose (known as Splenda®) was invented. It took over all the other artificial sweeteners because it tasted better, it was heatable and “safe”. Unfortunately, new research shows that it’s been linked to leukemia.2
Then years later, almost 100 years later in the case of Saccharin, it’s confirmed and it’s usually worse than we thought.
So it’s up to you, but I wouldn’t want to gamble with my health when over and over again it’s been proven that these artificial ingredients will cause health problems and irreversible damage to your body and mind!
Now, if you don’t care about cancer, maybe you care about gaining weight since after all, that’s the primary reason people take these fake sugars, to lose weight.
But ironically, 8 years of scientific research and data has shown that people who consume these fake sugars, especially in diet drinks, gain weight!8
In another study it also showed that the longer you use these ingredients, the more weight you gain.
Some speculate that it could be because these fake sugar actually increase your appetite and sugar cravings. Or the fact that they increase your insulin levels, even though you’re not taking in any “calories”.
Finally, artificial sweeteners are linked to neurological side-effects. They are “neurotoxins”. They cause brain problems. Depression, memory loss, ADHD/ADD, MS and anxiety.10. This happens because they disrupt serotonin and dopamine production, as well as receptor sites in your nervous system.11
So my suggestion is you limit or best of all, avoid any of these artificial sweeteners. If you want something sweet, try a NATURAL sweetener called Stevia. It’s an herbal extracts that’s been used safely in Japan for decades and now it’s gaining a lot of popularity in the US.
You can also try “sugar alcohols”. These end in “ol”, such as xylitol glucitol, sorbitol, maltitol, mannitol, glycerol, and lactitol.
They have minimal calories but they do cause stomach discomfort in many people, especially at higher dosages.
Or, if you just want to sweeten your coffee or tea or something, a little bit of regular sugar is just fine.
