Artificial Sweetener Is Bad For You?!

The World Health Organization (WHO) Has Given Advice About Consuming Artificial Sweeteners

They say that using these sweeteners to control weight might not be a good idea.

The WHO looked at lots of scientific studies to make their recommendations.

They found that artificial sweeteners might not help with losing body fat in the long run.

In fact, using them for a long time could even increase the chances of getting Type 2 diabetes, heart problems, and dying early, according to the WHO.

So, it’s better to avoid when using these sweeteners for weight control.

More On What The World Health Organization Thinks About Artificial Sweeteners 

What Does The Director Of Nutrition Have To Say?

According to Francesco Branca, the director for nutrition and food safety at the World Health Organization (WHO), sugar substitutes don’t provide any important nutrients.

He suggests that it’s better for everyone, from a young age, to reduce the amount of sweetness in their diet to improve their health.

The recommendation applies to most people, except those who already have diabetes.

People with diabetes may still find benefits from using sugar substitutes.

The WHO’s advice covers not only the little packets of sweetener that people add to their coffee but also the different types of sugar substitutes that food companies put in processed foods and drinks.

These substitutes can be found in items like bread, cereal, yogurt, and snack bars.

It’s important to be aware of the added sweetness in these products and try to reduce overall intake for better health.

The World Health Organization (WHO) Has Listed Some Common Non-sugar Sweeteners.

These include acesulfame K, aspartame, advantame, cyclamates, neotame, saccharin, sucralose, stevia, and stevia derivatives.

However, the Calorie Control Council, which is a group representing the food industry, disagrees with the WHO’s recommendation.

They say that non-sugar sweeteners are safe to use.

According to them, these sweeteners can help with managing weight, maintaining oral health, and reducing calorie and sugar intake.

It’s important to understand that different organizations may have different viewpoints, and it’s always a good idea to consider multiple perspectives and make informed choices about what we eat and drink.

Why Nutritionists Are Losing Their Minds….

 I’m not sure it changes anything.
On one hand, the W.H.O. is claiming that artificial sweeteners can increase the risk of stroke and diabetes – which is true…
However, they quickly confuse readers by stating that artificial sweeteners could benefit diabetics.
What does all this mean to you?
Of course, most artificial sweeteners can cause problems.  However, the solution is to have more sugar.
It’s like saying that Low Tar Cigarettes are bad for your health, so just have less Full Tar Cigarettes.
My point is that you should mostly be eating foods that do not need sweetening agents.  Such as:
  • Proteins
  • Fats
  • Veggies
Supplements will need to be sweetened.  However, I strongly recommend a natural plant-based sweetener – Stevia.
Sure it’s not as sweet or exciting as some of the others but since it is made from plant leaves it is also the safest of them all.
