PEP 43: Artificial Sweeteners: An Unbiased Review of the Research
Stop me if you've heard this before. "Diet soda is worse for you than regular soda." Is it, though? Do you ask them why? Is their response logical when you ask why? When I ask "why?", people generally cite artificial sweeteners and "chemicals" as the reasons. "Aspartame causes cancer", they say. "Sucralose makes you fat". At Primal Example, our goal is to help provide our clients with scientifically proven, natural lifestyle modification techniques to help facilitate optimal health. Key words: scientifically proven. In episode 43 of the podcast, Joe and John discuss what the research REALLY shows regarding the safety of artificial sweetener consumption. Are artificial sweeteners harmful? Do they contribute to obesity? Do artificial sweeteners alter the gut microbiome? Do artificial sweeteners contribute to cancer? Should you avoid them at all costs? We share new research about artificial sweeteners and answer all of the questions above. Be prepared, the research may shock you.
