Are there harms of artificial sweeteners that outweigh the benefits? We’ve asked this question before at Healthcare Triage, and the answer was no! There are lots of data that suggest artificial sweeteners are bad, but none of those data are good. There are good data suggesting that artificial sweeteners are just fine, but somehow those get ignored.
Now we’ve got a study on another artificial sweetener, erythritol, and many of you have asked what our take is.
