Many people think that diet soda is healthy because diet soda only contains no fat, low or no calories and no sugar. A can of soda can provides 140 calories, whereas a can of diet soda only provides 4 calories. If we switch from a regular soda to a diet soda then we can save up to 146 calories. Therefore some healthy experts recommended to drink diet soda instead of regular soda. In a can of 12 oz diet soda, there are a total fat of 0.7g, no saturated fat, no polyunsaturated fat, no monounsaturated fat, no cholesterol, 28mg of sodium, 25mg of potassium, 0.84g carbohydrate, no dietary fibre, no sugars and 0.39g of protein.
According to the manufacturer, sucralose is used in over 4,000 products across 80 different countries. Like most other artificial sweeteners, sucralose is extremely sweet, about 600 times more than regular sugar. When it is sold to consumers, Splenda is diluted with maltodextrin, a starchy carbohydrate, so that the product only contains 1% sucralose. 3) Discuss safety and the sweetener you have selected. Approximately 85% of sucralose has been shown to not be absorbed by the body and is excreted unchanged.

Let the Wind Blow by Kelli S. Mosley English Composition 162 Instructor Nausha Campbell 27 January 2009 Outline Thesis Statement: Digestion problems, the way foods are ingested, types of foods that are eaten, and medications that are taken are just a few causes of flatulence. I. Digestion A. Loss of digestion powers 1. Leads to increase in gas 2. Less efficient B.
After looking at both sides, I will conclude that limited use of alternative sweeteners is safe and beneficial. The arguments in favor of alternative sweeteners Alternative sweeteners were developed to make food sweet without promoting tooth decay or providing the empty calories that sugar contains. (Sizer & Whitney, p. 475) Because they provide little or no energy, they are also referred to as noncaloric or nonnutritive sweeteners. Contrary to popular belief, “the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) endorses the use of noncaloric sweeteners as safe over a lifetime when used within the acceptable daily intake (ADI) levels” (Sizer & Whitney, p. 475). Additionally, the American Diabetes Association and the National Cancer Institute hold the position that FDA-approved nonnutritive sweeteners can be safely used by consumers.
The American Dietary Association (ADA) claims that all foods can fit into a healthy diet when they are eaten in moderation and proportion. Although some foods undoubtedly have higher nutritional value than others, “no single food or type of food ensure good health, just as no single food or type of food is necessarily detrimental to health” (1). Nutrients, such as vitamin A, can be toxic in high levels, while “junk food” like dark chocolate can be beneficial if eaten in moderation. The ADA also states that even the title, Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Ranges, clearly shows that there is no magical number, but instead many acceptable values, for daily intake of macronutrients. Suzanne Havala, who is actually an active ADA member, claims the “total diet” approach is too complex for the general public: “’people want specific advice about what they should and should not eat’” (1).

(Heffron 2012 p.67) Panax ginseng is one of the most commonly used and highly researched species of ginseng. 3 scientific studies were found that studied the psychological effectiveness of ginseng. In the first study of 112 healthy volunteers older than 40 years, the administration of 400 mg per day of the standardized ginseng product ‘Gerimax’ for eight weeks resulted in better and faster simple reactions and abstract thinking, but no change in concentration, memory, or subjective experience. (Kiefer & Pantuso, 2003, p1539) This trial on various psychologic parameters has shown positive effects on reaction and abstract thinking, however no effect in concentration or
Xylitol is a naturally occurring alcohol found in most plant material. Xylitol cannot be broken down by bacteria, so no enamel-destroying acid is produced. Sugar-free gum sweetened with xylitol has been shown to reduce cavities and plaque because xylitol appears to inhibit bacterial growth, including growth of Streptococcus mutans -- the main bacteria implicated in dental decay. The sweetener sorbitol has the same benefit, but is only about one-third as effective as xylitol. Many clinical tests have shown significant reduction in tooth decay (cavities) by as much as 80% when using products sweetened with 100% xylitol.
However, does eating unhealthy food cause obesity or does obesity cause one to eat unhealthy food (Marlow, 2013)? 2. Describe the different viewpoints within the dilemma. Explain why each creates questions that must be answered. Those in favor of taxing unhealthy foods believe that those foods are the cause of obesity, taxing would be an effective intervention that would reduce consumption of unhealthy foods, and taxing would create revenue to fund programs focused on combatting obesity.
