Problems of Artificial Sweeteners

1. Sweeteners Increase Our Sweet Tooth

Saccharin is 300 times sweeter than sugar. Acesulfame-K is 200 times sweeter than sugar.
Such sweeteners can only increase our sweet tooth and increase our taste for sweet things.

2. Effects of Sweeteners on Digestion & Appetite

Research by the American Cancer Society indicates that regular users of artificial sweeteners tend to gain weight not lose it. It is believed this is because artificial sweeteners may slow down digestion and increase appetite.

3. Health Effects of Artificial Sweeteners

Artificial sweeteners are chemicals and should be consumed with care. The US Center for Science in the Public Interest has called for a ban on at least one major artificial sweetener due to fears it may be linked with cancer.
