Editorial: Artificial sweeteners are not all bad!
I am a physician and I have read a lot of articles that vilify artificial sweeteners. There are plenty of rat studies that suggest that they may be harmful to rodents. Very few studies have shown any significant form in humans are the recommended dosage. In fact, I would do a step further and say that there is limited evidence to suggest that nonnutritive sweeteners have any beneficial effects on metabolism, weight, and obesity-related chronic diseases.
