Effects of Artificial Sweeteners

Artificial sweeteners, also known as intense sweeteners are synthetic sugar substitutes, that add no calories to the diet. They are widely used in processed foods like baked products, soft drinks, canned foods, jams and jellies, dairy products, and other foods and beverages. Artificial sweeteners may be linked with long-term weight gain and may also increase the risk of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.
