Some research on the daily and long-term use of artificial sweeteners suggests a relationship with an increased risk of stroke, heart disease and death in general. However, other things people do, or healthy habits that people don't adopt, may be the cause of the increased risk. Swapping sugar for an artificial sweetener won't provide you with the health benefits you're looking for and could be dangerous to your long-term health. Low-calorie and no-calorie sweeteners don't necessarily make a food or drink healthy, but they can be helpful in reducing sugar intake.
Non-nutritive sweeteners (NNS) have become an important part of everyday life and are now increasingly being used in a variety of dietary and medicinal products. The ADI of an artificial sweetener is the amount that people can consume daily throughout their lives without any significant health risk.
