An Israeli collaborative study indicated relative toxicity of six artificial sweeteners (aspartame, sucralose, saccharine, neotame, advantame, and acesulfame potassium-k) and 10 sport supplements containing these artificial sweeteners.

The bacteria found in the digestive system became toxic when exposed to concentrations of only one mg./ml. of the artificial sweeteners.

This is further evidence that consumption of artificial sweeteners adversely affects gut microbial activity which can cause a wide range of health issues, including:

  • Depression, anxiety and insomnia
  • Acne, eczema and psoriasis
  • Asthma/allergies
  • Autism
  • Autoimmune diseases, including multiple sclerosis
  • Dental cavities
  • Diabetes
  • Eczema
  • Gastric ulcers, candida, and gut infections
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Inflammatory bowel diseases
  • Malnutrition
  • Obesity

Artificial sweeteners are used in countless food products and soft drinks with reduced sugar content.

Many people consume this added ingredient without their knowledge. Moreover, artificial sweeteners have been identified as emerging environmental pollutants, and can be found in drinking and surface water, and groundwater aquifers.
