Do you think artificial sweeteners are bad for health? For example, do you dodge aspartame?

I hear people sometimes complain about E-numbers in food but most people don’t understand that almost all ingredients just have an E-number.So people often throw E508 about their food. Is present in kitchen salt. And there’s E948 and E941 in every mouthful of breath you get inside. And E175 with E153 is very nice to your ring finger. At least, if you have a wedding ring with diamonds… (Gold and carbon)

But I just avoid all the sweeteners including sugar and notice that my appetite is so much less than it used to be.And that is very pleasant. A lot of sweeteners are known, Including beryllium chloride.Only that is heavily toxic, so we don’t know how sweet it really is.

Well, and the other sweeteners?How poisonous are those? Aspartame and Stevia are natural products that can be made in a chemical way in the meantime.

But it is more annoying that some studies seem to indicate that artificial sweeteners may be slightly addictive and encourage the consumer to take more of it.(Interactive effects of neonatal exposure to monosodium glutamate and aspartame on glucose homeostasis And also Sugar Substitutes Linked to Weight Gain) That actually means that if you are going to replace sugar with aspartame, you will get fewer calories per sip or bite, but you tend to eat or drink more.So its effect (losing weight) is nullified and can even get worse.

If you want to slim down, then you will have to get used to a diet without sweet flavors.So no sugar but also no aspartame, stevia or whatever. If it’s sweet, don’t eat! Over time, the appetite also goes away and you lose weight.

I’ve been a few years of all the “light” drinks off.
Artificial non-caloric sweetener use does not lead to weight loss, if you look at it in the population wide

This metalysis seems to be a tendency for weight gain to be bepitching Nonnutritive sweeteners and cardiometabolic health: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials and prospective cohort studies

Evidence from RCTs does not clearly support the intended benefits of nonnutritive sweeteners for weight management, and observational data suggest that routine intake of nonnutritive sweeteners may be associated with increased BMI and cardiometabolic risk.

A somewhat dated overview article by Jotham Suez, which has done a lot of research on this, nicely summarized in this picture, from a Bitter aftertaste: unintended Effects of Artificial sweeteners on the Gut microbiome

This picture shows that our microbiome (also in humans) changed into that of a type 2 diabetic, and that this gives insulin insensitivity (resistance), the first step to type 2 diabetes, is still needed the failure of the dysfunction of the islets of Langerhands The increased demand for insulin to keep up need to keep blood sugar values within normal limits.
The criticism is also that several artificial non-caloric sweeteners have been used in this study.

Stevia has not been included in this study, but according to the influence of Stevia glycosides on the growth of Lactobacillus reuteri strains , it also changes our gut microbiome in the sense that it inhibits the Lactobacillus reuteri population.

So since you do not develop any weight loss if you pass on artificial non caloric sweeteners, and could risk developing type 2 diabetes, why use it anyway?

I think it’s not active and am too lazy to do research.

I dodge sweeteners not very active, just don’t need it. If I take soda once then I just take the version with sugar because I almost never drink it. There are actually virtually no sweet things that I eat as habit, so otherwise really not necessary so also no need to dodge. If someone offers me something with sweetener I’ll try it often.

Artificial sweeteners can just as well cause diabetes, especially when used excessively.

As a diabetic and kidney patient, I have to be very careful with sugars, but also with artificial sweeteners.

I don’t dodge them, to be careful what I get inside.

I read the book Ode to the E-numbers of Rosanne Hertzberger.It is also about aspartame, and I seem to recall that she says that it cannot hurt. However, I notice that it is rather… It has a bit of a bad name I have the idea.
