All About Artificial Sweeteners

If you like your food sweet, but worry about calories at the same time, chances are you are leaning towards artificial sweeteners to solve your dilemma. The market is flooded with artificial sweeteners, so how do you choose one? And what are their pros and cons?

Besides weight control, artificial sweeteners are also used by people suffering from diabetes. But there is a debate as to how safe artificial sweeteners are, for normal people and diabetics alike.

You get multiple choices from aspartame to sucralose, present in stores. However, it is better to be educated about their benefits and disadvantages.

The pros and cons of most popular sweeteners are as follows:

1. Saccharin: This sugar substitute has been in the market for the longest.
Pros:
a) It has zero calories
b) It does not elevate the levels of blood sugar
c) 200-700 times sweeter than normal sugar
Cons:
a) It is a possible carcinogen (substances that cause cancer)
b) There is also the danger of saccharin acting as an allergen (substances that cause allergy)

2. Aspartame: It is the most commonly used sugar substitute. Almost all the food items that boast of being sugar-free have aspartame in them.
Pros:
a) 160-220 times sweeter than common sugar
b) A small amount goes a long way, so calorie intake is lesser
Cons:
a) Headaches, depression and cancer have been linked to aspartame use
b) Increased hunger

3. Sucralose: This sugar substitute is derived from sugar itself. It is gradually becoming the most popularly used sweetener as it is found in almost all cooked or baked foods.
Pros:
a) It is heat resistant, so it is used liberally in cooking and baking
b) It has very few calories
Cons:
a) Weight gain is still possible
b) It has chlorine in it, which is a carcinogen

4. Neotame: This is a new invention and is chemically related to aspartame.
Pros:
a) 7000 -13000 times sweeter than common sugar with zero calories
b) Apparently, it is safe for consumption for teens, children and even for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
Cons:
a) There isn't enough research done on Neotame, therefore very little is known about it
b) Since its chemical composition is closer to aspartame, there is much controversy about "neotame" affecting people the same way as aspartame

1.Little bit of bending to one side upto 25 degree is considered normal. So don't worry 2. If the bending is more and it is associated with painful erection, it is due to thickening of fibrous tissue on one side as in Peyronie's disease and may need surgery. 3.you may consult urologist for advice.

Styes are infection of Moll & zeis gland present in every body eye lids ,basically infected by staphylococci.styes are very painful swelling near the root of eye lashes, you need oral antibiotics&anti inflammatory tablet as well as antibiotic ointment to apply locally.Hot fomentation helps to some extent in styes.

What should we do to improve our platelet value. What are the precautions to be taken against dengue fever.

What should we do to improve our platelet value. What are the precautions to be taken against dengue fever.
For improving the platelet count naturally, have nutritious, balanced food specially: - Papaya - Wheat grass - Pumpkin - Spinach - Vitamin C like lemons, oranges, tomatoes, cantaloupes, kiwi, spinach, bell peppers and broccoli - Indian Gooseberris - Sesame oil - Beetroot Adding to it, have plenty of water and do regular exerises (it increases your oxygen capacity and circulation both). Additional Tips Limit alcohol intake as it can hamper production of platelets in the bone marrow. Also, avoid tonic water as the quinine in it can contribute to decreased blood platelet counts. Avoid eating raw vegetables when your platelet count is low as it may damage the intestinal lining. Instead, steam vegetables until soft and then eat them. Eat 1 to 2 red guavas daily to improve the platelet count. Foods that act as blood purifiers like aloe vera must also be included in your diet. Avoid all dairy products, including milk, yogurt, cheese and butter, for a few days as these products can contribute to mucus formation and worsen some autoimmune diseases. Avoid canned and processed foods that do not offer many nutrients. Get at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night to help your body recharge and produce more platelets. Eat whole-grain cereals, brown rice and whole-wheat products. Avoid white flour, white rice and processed foods. Avoid activities that may cause injuries. Ask your doctor before taking over-the-counter medications as some medicines may affect your platelet function. Avoiding mosquitoes bite is the major precaution against dengue fever. People should take following necessary precautions to combat dengue fever before it gets in body: Keep home, environment and surrounding hygiene Remove all stagnant water and containers Keep all drains well maintained and repair all chokes Avoid accumulation of ground water Fill up all defective grounds Don’t store water Avoid unnecessary irrigation Cover all containers properly Change flower vase water once a week to prevent dengue mosquito breeding there Wrap all unused plastic tyres Regularly change water in animal drinking containers Use mosquito repellents to avoid mosquito bite Use mosquito screen to prevent mosquito attack Use aerosols and mosquito coils to kill mosquitoes Wear long sleeve and fully covered clothes Use mosquitoes net around bed while sleeping

Hello dear Lybrate user, hi Warm welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly. You can not use these types of formulations randomly just by looking online publicity.

You have to keep patience, and may be that you are going to cure through this platform, so I am writing answer to you. I assure you best possible guidelines and management for the same, if you want can consult me in private, I have solved such so many cases in last 18 years of my practise in Gujarat sir Hope this clears your query. Wishing you fine recovery. Welcome for any further assistance at my private URL https://www.Lybrate.com/gandhinagar/doctor/dr-bhagyesh-patel-general-surgeon Regards take care.
