Very Common Chemical Dangerous in Pregnancy

I have always been and will always remain staunchly against artificial sweeteners.  In ANY amount.

They have become so ubiquitous and so accepted in society today that no one questions their safety.  However, an increasing number of animal and human studies continue to find that these compounds increase the risk of weight gain and diabetes–exactly what people take them to avoid.

I do not care if it is one simple piece of gum per day with aspartame or sucralose.  How little does it take for our bodies to alter our response to sweetness?

If you can’t answer that question with certainty, then the only acceptable answer is NONE.  In this particular study we find that diet sodas actually contribute to preterm birth.  Just one per day increases your risk 38%.  Four per day jumps that risk to 78%.  Bottom line is that these chemicals  are not safe in ANY amounts.
