Just How Dangerous Are Splenda and Artificial Sweeteners - Which Side is Spinning?

Written by Richard Keir

Continued from page 1

Like you I've seen some miracles of modern science turn into nightmares whenrepparttar testing wasn't adequate, whenrepparttar 141967 results were fudged, when coverups went on. So questions exist about allrepparttar 141968 artificial sweeteners. Splenda may be less dangerous than Aspartame (which I sure wouldn't recommend to anyone). Long-term and independent studies are lacking. And here'srepparttar 141969 real kicker:

***** From Consumers' Research Magazine "There is no clear-cut evidence that sugar substitutes are useful in weight reduction. Onrepparttar 141970 contrary, there is some evidence that these substances may stimulate appetite."

Now that just tears it. Risk your health using one of these chemicals and then end up eating more because it stimulates your appetite. Terrific.

So what alternatives are there? Surprisingly there are quite a few. One interesting alternative is a South American plant called Stevia. Apparently once considered a potential threat torepparttar 141971 sugar industry, it seems to have been deep-sixed early inrepparttar 141972 twentieth century. It has been used as a sweetener for centuries by South American natives. Inrepparttar 141973 U.S., it seems (somehow) to have been kept from being available as an "additive" andrepparttar 141974 FDA has said not enough studies have been done. Yet it's widely used by diabetics and in countries such as Japan and Brazil. Stevia is available at health stores as a supplement (though without any indication that it could be used as a sweetener). It's a fascinating story which you can read here: http://www.stevia.net/ - The Stevia Story

Our health is challenged on all sides these days. New chemicals, new additives, genetically engineered foods, highly processed foods, empty calories, stress and pollution all pose threats to our bodies. I've come torepparttar 141975 conclusion thatrepparttar 141976 fewer highly processed, chemically enhanced, questionably assessed, factory created products we ingest,repparttar 141977 better off we will probably be.

Our bodies evolved as a part ofrepparttar 141978 natural world and though we are changingrepparttar 141979 world radically (which is only natural, it is what people do after all), our bodies do not evolve and adapt atrepparttar 141980 rate technology changes. And for scientific, political and economic reasons,repparttar 141981 quality and thoroughness of evaluations done on newly created products don't match up to our industrial creativity.

Finally, balancingrepparttar 141982 need to lose weight (or maintain an optimum weight) against potential risks creates difficult choices. It's up to you to makerepparttar 141983 best choice you can for your specific situation -- just remember, that old saw still holds - Letrepparttar 141984 buyer beware.
