If we consider the research, outside of the 1 in 10,000 of us who suffer from the rare condition Phenylketonuria (who can not process the breakdown of Aspartame, ) use of diet drinks and sweetener-based products should not be considered a risk to our health, and we should be able able to enjoy them as part of our daily diets.
Scientists from the University of Manitoba looked over 37 existing studies tracking more than 400,000 people for an average of 10 years to work out just how good artificial sweeteners are for you, AAP reports.
Every few weeks, new claims are made based off the latest research which seem to constantly alter our views and help form our opinions on many topics.
Rather than aiming to cut out artificial sweetners unnecessarily from our diets (a hard task, based on the prevalence of their use, ) let's consider the research.

For their review, Azad and her colleagues weeded through more than 11,000 published studies, narrowing their review down to seven clinical trials and 30 long-term studies.
Ordering a diet soda as a "healthier" choice may be backfiring.

When you don't get that calorie surge, your body may feel less satisfied-triggering our appetites and possibly prompting us to search for more substantial food.
The full results appear in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ). But they did not find concrete proof of causation. Researchers wanted to look more broadly at what's going on by doing a large-scale analysis of dozens of studies on low-calorie sweeteners.
