Harmful toxins and chemicals are everywhere around us – they are in the food we eat, the air we breathe and in other places and products we aren’t aware of. Today we’re going to present 5 of the most common toxic household items that you need to get rid of if you want to stay healthy.
- Artificial sweeteners
Many people add artificial sweeteners to their coffee and tea instead of sugar, but they are worse than sugar itself. Here are some of the main ingredients in these sweeteners:
Aspartame is linked to skin cancer and can be fatal in case of phenylketonuria.
Sorbitol isn’t fully digested in the intestines which leads to diarrhea, bloating and gasses.
This ingredient can affect pregnancy and is highly carcinogenic.
Saccharin is indigestive like sorbitol and has been related to bladder cancer.
If you must sweeten your drinks, try these sugar replacements:
Xylitol improves bone density and reduces the risk of tooth decay
This syrup will feed the beneficial bacteria in your gut and can help you in cases of constipation.
Stevia is a natural sweetener which will lower your blood sugar levels and cholesterol.
