2018 October 03 – According to a study published in the journal Molecules, researchers found that six common artificial sweeteners approved by the Food and Drug Administration and 10 sport supplements that contained them were found to be toxic to the digestive gut microbes of mice.

The toxicity of aspartame, sucralose, saccharine, neotame, advantame, and acesulfame potassium-k were tested. When exposed to only 1 milligram per milliliter of the artificial sweeteners, the bacteria found in the digestive system became toxic. – cnbc.com
