Experts predict the annual number of cancer cases in the U.S. will increase by nearly 50 percent by 2050.
And there’s one culprit that’s increasing this risk exponentially.
It relates to our country’s collective sweet tooth…
And it’s further fueled by marketing campaign that falsely labels it as a “healthy” substitute.
Let me explain…
Artificial sweeteners linked to cancer
According to a recent, ongoing study called NutriNet-Santé, consuming artificial sweeteners can increase your cancer risk.
Researchers in France analyzed data from over 100,000 adults taking part in a nutritional survey since 2009.
Participants reported their diet, medical history, and other health information. And artificial sweetener intake was pulled from the participants’ dietary records.
After first accounting for different factors that could contribute to cancer risk (like age, body mass index, and smoking habits), researchers then looked at the relationship between common artificial sweeteners (aspartame, acesulfame-K, and sucralose) and overall cancer risk.
They found that people who consumed large amounts of artificial sweeteners had a 13 percent higher risk of developing cancer over eight years than those who did not.
Not to mention, a higher consumption of aspartame (think “the blue packet”, or Equal) was associated with a 22 percent increased risk of cancer and a 15 percent heightened risk of obesity-related cancer.
(Obesity-related cancers include breast, colorectal, gallbladder, kidney, stomach, liver, mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophageal, ovarian, endometrial, and prostate.)
Skip the artificial sweeteners
This isn’t the first time I’ve outlined the deadly risks associated with artificial sweeteners.
In fact, in the October 2011 issue of my monthly Logical Health Alternatives newsletter (“The skinny on sweeteners”) I outline your artificial enemies, how to avoid them, and the sweeteners you can safely enjoy.
But for anyone who’s been brainwashed to think they’re making a healthier choice by grabbing a yellow, pink, or blue (sugar substitute) packet… think again.
My advice? Say NO to artificial sweeteners. And say NO to your sweet tooth more often than not. (Sugar is linked to at least 13 different types of cancer, too.)
Believe me when I tell you that even the most die-hard sweet tooth can get by without sugar. (Become a subscriber for a detailed sugar substitute cheat sheet.)
Because as this research shows, this is a HUGE modifiable cancer risk factor.
