Artificial Sweeteners are they safe?

June 25th, 2007 by Paul Johnson

Artificial sweeteners is a common ingredient for bodybuilder diets. They are found in many protein powders and other supplements. Bodybuilders might even add it to their foods low in carbohydrates.

Personally my feeling is any artificial Sweetener should not be used in large doses in the diet if you can avoid it. Almost all of them have been found to have questionable or conflicting very serious health effects when done for animal studies.

So therefore we won't be recommending or even reviewing any of them as everyone seems to be questionable based on research. They are all unsafe, or at least suspected of not being safe. Most artificial sweeteners seem to have possible cancer link and/or other very dangerous health effects. My motto is, better safe then sorry. The government's corporate interests often do not line up with the best interest of the people.

If you plan on adding sweeteners to your diet you should do some thorough research on any(all) scientific studies before adding it to your diet.

There really is no better sweetener then mother nature herself.
