Health officials urge families to limit the amount of processed foods. Foods are often marketed towards children who are unaware of harmful substances that lurk within their favorite foods. Parents should take caution towards artificial sweeteners and meats.
The natural sweetener erythritol does not appear to carry the adverse effects associated with other non- and low-caloric natural and artificial sweeteners, and may actually have antioxidant potential. Their status was changed from harmless to helpful when they noticed their molecular structure to resemble that of an antioxidant. Erythritol has shown to be non-cancerous and kills free radicals.
Most of the artificial sweeteners on the market have been associated with health problems. These heath problems can range from migraines to cancer though. Be sure to know what you're eating!
