I had checked the "I would like info relating to diabetes" box when I signed up for Sparkpeople, a nutrition and eating habits tracking website. A few minutes ago I received an email from Sparkpeople with an update on artificial sweeteners. They stated despite being FDA-approved, artificial sweeteners have been linked with head aches, mood swings and even multiple behavioral disorders.
But it's so hard to ignore the fact that they give you the sweetness you crave so dearly without the disadvantage of calories and have little glycemic response!
What do you think of sweeteners? Is it worth the potential effects on your body?
