I was once told that they're not good because they're aritifical and not natural. If that makes any sense?
Depends on how 'my body is a temple' you are about such things.
do you mean that they don't do any lasting damage
If you're the sort of person who doesn't like taking painkillers or crap like that then you'd probably consider they damage you.
I don't wanna eat stuff that's bad for me, but then I don't really think I just wanna eat superfoods and stuff
Hence my reply down there. v
Look: You're going to die. Everyone dies. And almost always in a lot of pain or misery.
Just have fun while you can.
I've heard they make your hair fall out if you have too many. Or was that asbestos? One of the two.
although you'd probably have to eat shitloads of them to actually have a really bad side effect, but saccharine causes cancer in male rats, and aspartame may be connected to brain tumours.
that's scary stuff!
But what isn't these days?
I better stop having them then
You won't eat a high enough dose. It's silly to use carcinogenics as a reason not to use them.
they are bad because they are sweet. your tongue picks up sweetness entering your body. it then transmits this to the brain which repares the body for a large dose of sugar. after a while, your body will not have the sugar it anticipated, leaving you with a sugar deficeit; effectively a sugar low.
cause any permanent damage?
lets just say that they are certainly less healthy for you than natural sugar, and should not be used to replace it.
due to them not containing sugar and not being as full of, well, sugar as sugar is.
