Are Artificial Sweeteners DANGEROUS? Do they Cause FAT GAIN?| What Does the Science Say?

Video taken from the channel: VitruvianPhysique


A new study finds that sucralose is linked to weight gain, but experts say that such artificial sweeteners are a safe alternative to sugar and help weight loss and management. Last year, scientists at Purdue University published the results of a clinical trial that compared the effects of sugar and four different low-calorie sweeteners on weight gain in overweight. Artificial Sweeteners May Actually Cause You to Gain Weight Researchers say the sugar substitutes added to foods and drinks can lead to long-term weight gain as well as diabetes, high blood.

A recent study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal found that drinking one drink with artificial sugar a day can lead to a higher risk of weight gain, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Unfortunately for the Diet Coke lovers among us, the study’s methods are sound. Well, science isn’t so sure about that. It’s true that sugar is calorie-dense and can spike blood sugar, which is why consuming high amounts of it is associated with weight gain, diabetes and heart problems. The researchers in this latest study found that the artificial sweetener, sucralose, commonly found in diet foods and drinks, increases GLUT4 in these cells and promotes the accumulation of fat.

Will Splenda® (sucralose) cause adverse health effects or diseases like cancer or negatively impact the liver or kidneys? No. Around the world, sucralose has been confirmed safe. It is approved for use in over 80 countries, is used to sweeten over 4,000 food and beverage products and provides sweetness in some medicines and medical foods.

A new study suggests that artificial sweeteners are linked to weight gain—not weight loss—as well as obesity, diabetes and heart disease. A new analysis also links them to obesity, diabetes. Firstly weight gain may occur due to changes in the way glucose is metabolized. Secondly, weight gain may be caused by an alteration in the gut microbiota.

This study published in 2014 demonstrated that consuming artificial sweeteners could cause glucose intolerance because of the disruption in the intestinal microbiota. Casting doubt on the benefit of low-calorie sweeteners, research released Sunday reported that rats on diets containing saccharin gained more weight than rats given sugary food.

Sucralose also produced significant weight gain in the study.

Other experts counter that it is simply the empty calories consumed from HFCS-containing products that contribute to obesity, and that weight gain is not inherent to the sweetener itself.

Sucralose is seen as a chemical by your body, not as a carbohydrate, so it has no effect on insulin secretion or carbohydrate metabolism.

Even at doses within the FDA’s acceptable daily intake, Splenda significantly altered the microbiome, disrupted pH balance, increased the expression of enzymes known to interfere with nutrient absorption, and caused weight gain.

However, the use of caloric sweeteners such as fructose and sorbitol in the belief that their contribution to energy value of the diet is insignificant may undermine efforts to lose weight and could lead to weight gain.

Thus, rather than being an aid to weight reduction, these studies were suggesting that artificial sweeteners may actually cause a gain in body weight.

Review the evidence: It is logical to conclude that replacing sugar-sweetened food items with NNSs would lead to reduced kcalorie intake with less weight gain or modest weight loss, but research evidence is varied.

Adverse personal health effects for some individuals may be the result of either consuming too many calories and therefore gaining weight or using sugar substitutes including (1) the nonnutritive, artificial sweeteners and (2) caloric sugar alcohols.

  • Well I mean.. If you have the choice between diet soda and regular soda.. You should drink diet.

    Like I eat non-fat non-flavored yogurt and load it up with stevia and cinnamon.

  • DO NOT TRUST “DOCTOR” MERCOLA. Dr. Mercola is an industrial sell-out and has had legal troubles before, and even a run-in with the Feds. He is also an anti-vaxxer, which is a DEFINITE red flag. Whether or not aspartame is dangerous, there are no peer-reviewed scientific studies that have concluded such things about it yet. Although there can be allergic reactions in some people, consuming a lot of sugar is more dangerous than consuming a lot of aspartame. If you’re really worried, you can use monk fruit syrup or stevia extract instead, which are natural sweeteners. Avoid refined sugar like a plague. In the grand scheme of things, sugar has done much more harm on a wider scale than any sweetener has.

  • This video was brought to you in part by the makers of SUGAR, I’ve been using Splenda for years without issues, I was a borderline diabetic and after cutting carbs and replacing sugar with Splenda my health improved drastically.. so Fk you!! Keep using that fkng diabetes and obesity causing poison called sugar

  • Thanks Wayne for following up on this and keep us your viewers/Fans Informed we appreciate what you do for us and the whole Vape Community to use your word Peace Much love Little Aussie Follower

  • I had to use sucralose last week, I prefer to use stevia sweetener or nothing at all but anyway I used 2% and its been bugging me ever since. I need to get more stevia, maybe just get a load of it and just stop using sucralose… if for nothing more than saving coils, but I dunno, I don’t think I want to use it in any situation now. If we expect other people to vape our liquids then we need to be sure and we need to be aware of the alternatives. Wayne bro… please do a video on alternatives to Sucralose especially my favorite Stevia, I find it blends nicely and isn’t nearly as noticable it would be great to have an educated rundown of these options.

  • A lot of protein powders have sucralose. Tastes good but I don’t trust it. Tried a protein powder enhanced by stevia and tasted like crap. Am now using one which uses xylitol and steviol glycosides and is quite nice

  • Camarero me trae, por favor, un croissant con mermelada, mantequilla y un cafe con leche! Ahhh, pero con con endulzante artificial, que el azucar engorda. Ja,Ja,Ja!!

  • Despite whatever you have heard the best one is SACCHARIN, THE ORIGINAL ARTIFICIAL SWEETENER. Read all “studies” critically and the whole history about its use and the “experiments” PERPETRATED by the Sugar lobby; never in humans by the way

  • 200 to 2,000 times sweeter huh? Ask a kid if he prefers a regular coke or a diet coke and see how much sweeter he thinks the diet one is. Everyone already knows the answer….he thinks the diet one tastes like sadness and misery and the real sugar one tastes like a day without school.

    Sweetness measurement is like bitterness measurement which is measured in IBU’s International Bitter Units….something can technically measure higher but taste much less bitter. Testing chemical constituent levels and inferring levels in a lab isn’t the same as the feels like on the tongue. People universally prefer real sugar to artificial sugar and it is well known that many people never can develop a taste for artificial sweetners. Because they universally taste less sweet.

    There are so many maybes and could be’s in this video it is almost like one of the workable fusion, other dimension, multiverse, wormhole or warp speed videos in that it it hits the ear like science fiction that could in pure theory one day actually work and be non-fiction, but today, right now it just doesn’t happen that way.

  • Would you do a short video on monster drinks? I know you like them as do I and I was wondering if you could do a video on the break down of the nutrition facts (for the zero sugar) brand. I know the use erythritol as a sweetner and some other ingredients like taurine. As well the caffine content doesnt seem that high to me.Anyway hopefully you can do a short one on this to let us all know thatnks!

  • Hey mark you replied to my question a while back regarding insurgent, it’s back in stock in the U.K on a-list nutrition. The shipping from America is too much so just waited for it to be stocked here again. Hope it works for me, can’t wait to see what effects or results I get. Keep up the good content.

  • glad i stayed for the entire video, love the pug! also thank you for giving me some ammunition for my annoying coworkers who make fun of me for only drinking diet soda. ive been drinking diet soda for about 10 years and its helped me enjoy a cold beverage with every meal and keep my bodyweight in control (because it literally does nothing!)

  • I’m going to blame a sugar-industry conspiracy for the view count, THEY DON’T WANT THE TRUTH TO GET OUT. This deserves much more attention, the editing quality is superb, and the information provided is accurate and unbiased. I am glad you touched on the shady actions the sugar industry has taken to tarnish the reputation of substitutes, and even other foods. Letting go of cheat meals consisting of high levels of sugar was one of the hardest and most beneficial decisions I have made in life so far. It is devastating to know that most of the developed world is entrenched in a destructive sugar addiction, but even more horrific that most are unaware of the litany of adverse heal effects that fats and artificial sweeteners take the rap for in sugars stead. Big ups for making this vid, I’m sure it took a fuck-load of time and hopefully you’re able to make more in the future

  • Really good video, thanks a lot. Is there any information from the manufacturers how many sucralose is in the singleflavors, f.e. fruits? As a chemist i was always a little concerned about heating up sucralose and i never used it since i started mixing 3 years ago… but about 3 month ago i started adding it a little bit… now this…. damn it ^^

  • You know Igor, I was going to send this to my mom, because she is really against artificial sweeteners, but you sure have made that impossible with all the dick jokes! ��

  • Have you ever heard of THAUMATIN? It’s impossible to find it commercially safe for “carp feed”. It’s a natural edulcorant from African fruit and n! times sweeter then stevia with no “glacial” aftertaste

  • I suspect much of the “sugar high” to be triggered by the taste receptors and not the metabolism so maybe artificial sweeteners are not that bad if all you crave is a mood booster, which sugar is.

  • i smoked for 35yrs, vaping got me clear of it, i use one drop of sweetner per 30ml, ill take my chances, ill do anything to keep from smoking cigarettes

  • Hey, Iam 16 and I got into lifting around december, in your video about teen bodybuilding you mention that we should just let our muscles grow. Doest that mean try to bulk up? (IDK my bodyfat by i have a blurry 4-pack) Or to just do “intuitive eating” while tracking protein? Btw, I love your videos, i learned 90% of my fittnes knowledge from you and Jeff Nippard. Hopefully i will get to your level of fitness after 12 years of lifting ��. Keep up the good work.

  • Really Loving These New Videos You Have Been Making Recently! �� Valuable Information For The Diy Community/Vaping Industry And It Is Much Appreciated! ��Thank You, Sir!

  • Thanks for dropping knowledge with videos. I’m New to your stuff, New to fitness in general but for a lot of useful info out of your channel. Respect

  • OH VEY! Do not use artificial sweeteners, but actual cancer inducing sugar. It is good for you, really.

    /sarcasm

    Stevia rocks, in my subjective opinion!

    Only concrete, objective, factual information matters.

  • Hey mark you replied to my question a while back regarding insurgent, it’s back in stock in the U.K on a-list nutrition. The shipping from America is too much so just waited for it to be stocked here again. Hope it works for me, can’t wait to see what effects or results I get. Keep up the good content.

  • HOLY F. I bet u used a billions of hours collecting, analyzing all the data in this video. Thanks for doing the job for me!:) Love these videos! u outdone yourself this time

  • response to comments regarding the use of maltodextrin as a carrier… just use the pure form of sucralose. you cannot harm yourself consuming sucralose the size of half of a rice at a time…

  • So, maybe the answer is to reduce your sugar by half & make up the difference with an artificial sweetener, thus there is sugar in your system for the insulin to work on, etc..

  • Amazingly well done video. I always love the way you do these because you back everything with research. But really. You need a new Outro man.

  • Hi Igor!���� I’ve discovered your channel days ago and I immediately subscribed����I love your content so much!! So interesting and you are also really funny �� you are amazing�� thank you so much

  • Another great, informative video. Been stirring over this for a while and was part of the “Aspartame is evil mmkay” camp for a good while.

  • Splenda is NOT sucralose. People use the two as though they are interchangeable. They are not. Splenda is only 5% sucralose. 95% is maltodextrin.

  • Totally agree with the last part. Have had friends order a salad, diet soda and then large fries and two packs of chili cheese… Oh, and some dip of course.

  • It gave the hubby some horrible itchy rash that thedoctors couldn’t figure out and then I remembered hearing something about splenda causing it in some people. So I told him to stop using it and within a couple of days he was better

  • HOLY F. I bet u used a billions of hours collecting, analyzing all the data in this video. Thanks for doing the job for me!:) Love these videos! u outdone yourself this time

  • Every since I was diagnosed with diabetes this has been my favorite sweetener. I have tried several of the others including the popular Stevia garbage, even a small amount of that crap tastes like chemical. I can tell you from years of experience with sucrolose that it doesn’t taste anything like sugar & there is no way it is sweeter than sugar. Sugar is way better, but since I can’t eat or drink a lot of sugar I have to settle for what taste good to me.

  • Thought I was just hungry & couldn’t concentrate��…. but got it at the end, “…makes glucose, dont use it and it sits there”����.

    …..went back & researched, it’s acceptable on keto!��

  • I drink Splenda in coffee every single day (3 cups, 4 packs per cup). It doesn’t do anything to make me gain weight. I’ve been doing it for 20 years. I don’t use Splenda in anything else and I never use cane sugar. All my blood work is normal and I’m 59.

  • There are REAL sugars that are zero calories and taste EXACTLY like normal sugar,for example,L-glucose (also know as (2S,3R,4S,5S)-2,3,4,5,6-pentahydroxyhexanal).

  • igor my man… awesome video.. i am just 3 min into the video, i thought i just pause for a thumbs up and a comment.
    Have to say your video presenting style is on point and superly entertaining….

  • I use splenda all the time. It has zero effect on my blood glucose levels. Infact, my A1C improved recently but mostly attributed to my new diabetic med. I have been consuming Splenda for years.

  • Thomas,
    I appreciate your content and I have invested in your products like the Green Detox and the Purathrive products like the Liposomal Turmeric, B-12, Active B complex, Radiant C and Vit D 3 K 2. I feel like they have made a difference and I can feel it. However I’ve seen some videos you have made, like this one, that pretty much has spoken negative towards sucralose. Having said that, your Green Detox has sucralose in it. I read the ingredients. Your Purathrive products have sucrose. I’m sure that’s why they taste good. I am concerned now because I have invested a good amount of $$ into the products. What is your feed back?

  • Skinny syrups are delicious �� that’s what I use in my beverages. But I just found out they’re sweetened with Sucralose ( mostly known as Splenda) ����

  • Hey, Iam 16 and I got into lifting around december, in your video about teen bodybuilding you mention that we should just let our muscles grow. Doest that mean try to bulk up? (IDK my bodyfat by i have a blurry 4-pack) Or to just do “intuitive eating” while tracking protein? Btw, I love your videos, i learned 90% of my fittnes knowledge from you and Jeff Nippard. Hopefully i will get to your level of fitness after 12 years of lifting ��. Keep up the good work.

  • I get the most horrendous headaches when I use Spenda. I ultimately had to stop using it. Long term use (as I’ve read) contributes to Alzheimer’s and Parkison’s disease. It’s also been said to contribute to symptoms of Dementia.
    Gotta be careful folks!!!

  • Look up surcalose. It’s bleached sugar.
    Of course sucralose doesn’t cause weight reduction! Not eating sugar causes weight reduction. Sucralose causes a reduction of sugar intake, by replacing it.
    Stevia and monk fruit are the sweeteners of the future. You’ll have to dig for them though, because sugar products/byproducts make too much money for corporations to give up on. Would you like some Mountain Dew with your Snickers bar?

  • I use to put at least 10 in 1 cup of coffee not gonna lie..i just use stevia now.. didn’t know they had calories those fuckers lol

  • I’m going to blame a sugar-industry conspiracy for the view count, THEY DON’T WANT THE TRUTH TO GET OUT. This deserves much more attention, the editing quality is superb, and the information provided is accurate and unbiased. I am glad you touched on the shady actions the sugar industry has taken to tarnish the reputation of substitutes, and even other foods.

  • When I was on Atkins years ago (God help me) I was eating tons of Splenda I would literally tear packets open onto a plate and add cinnamon and just eat it that way to curb my sweet tooth lol

  • Hi Sean re supplements in general; what’s your opinion of the Legion range, in particular ‘Pulse’ and ‘Recharge’? Neither use proprietary blends.

  • Splenda is NOT sucralose. People use the two as though they are interchangeable. They are not. Splenda is only 5% sucralose. 95% is maltodextrin.

  • As per other comments, this entire video is basically a BuzzFeed article. Catchy headline, barely any real content or context given

  • Using sweeteners surely changes our preference to what food should taste like. So having this in our diet wouldn’t surely movitave us to eat GI high foods in general thus contributing to weight gain? Reprogramming our taste in this way (or in any way) seems stupid. How food tastes contributes to what we think we should be eating.
    Splenda causes a known “laxative effect” so it disturbs our gut process there are a few theories as to why but ultimately we need our gut process working well and our gut flora in good health.

    I also wonder what it does to the environment after it passes through our bodies.

  • My mom baked some pancakes with one tbs of a substance containing sucralose. She didnt know that it could be harmful nor did I know that it contained baked sucralose till after. Ate around 4 disc sized of those. Will I die?

  • This one took a LONG time to make so hopefully you guys like it and if you do, make sure to leave this video a like as it lets me know you enjoy this “video essay” style and it tells me to make more!

  • Not to knock the guy’s degree, but a minor undergraduate degree in chemistry doesn’t make you an expert in Chemistry. I did an elective in Japanese language with my BA, I’m now an expert in saying “konichiwa”

  • I’ve always heard it causes cancer so stay away from diet soda pop ect. So it should be fine in soda since it’s not heated?? Or is there a heating process to making the soda? Hmm? I try to stay away from sugar but everywhere I look and buy zero sugar products I find Splenda in it..�� I hope there’s more research into this stuff since sugar is bad and so is this stuff. But what is worse is the real question. Right?

  • The thing with these artificial sweetener they gave lab rats equivalent of a whole five gallon bucket if people ate them they pretty much intended to make the rats have problems with them. and the body naturally produces Formaldehyde anyway. You should really do your research.

  • It’s not bad for you. It’s actually extremely safe just like Alulose. All those Splenda claims are just relative to Splenda. Don’t take splenda.

    I’ve been taking energy drinks with Suclarose for 4 months now; and all of my workouts have been super explosive, especially with Bang and Celsius. I take Bang now specifically for the Creatine it has. I burn 900 calories daily in like an hour and never stop punching through.

  • Weight gain should really be the least of the concern especially when it comes to artificial sweeteners like aspartame. Checkout the Neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylocks work on artificial sweeteners, flavor enhancers, and excitotoxins. Not that I’m recommending consuming a bunch of sugar or saying that’s ok.. however a person should seriously research and consider limiting these artificial sweeteners/flavors especially aspartame,msg, high fructose corn syrup, etc.

  • Thank u for this video, I personally stay away from all of these sweeteners (unless it’s a cheat day) I knew they weren’t good for me but I was curious about the reasons behind it.

  • I’ve been drinking Iced tea with artificial sweetener for almost 10 years now. But despite of that I thank God cause according to my pre-employment Urine medical exam, the result is just fine/normal…

  • A lot of protein powders have sucralose. Tastes good but I don’t trust it. Tried a protein powder enhanced by stevia and tasted like crap. Am now using one which uses xylitol and steviol glycosides and is quite nice

  • I saw O2B mention this video on his InstaStory…love love LOVED it! Liked and subbed!!! I’ll probably be binging on your videos when I get home from work tonight. You just made my lunch break way more awesomer…(is that a word? Eh, well it is now.) ��������

  • This stuff is poison. I worked in a Splenda plant years ago. The guys mixing it had to wear hazmat suits and I kept a respiratory infection the entire time I worked there. I don’t think something that is healthy requires a masks and suits to process for human consumption. DON’T eat it!

  • A LOT of confirmation bias not just in this video, but in a lot of other “fitness” and “health” videos as well. A lot of these studies that these “health experts” cherry pick from are from rats that are fed truck loads of these artificial sweeteners. Of course a truck load of anything over a short to medium term time span is going to cause problems..

  • Eh I feel like this is full of shit. I’ve grown used to diet sodas/drinks/artificial sweeteners and now actual sugar drinks and desserts just taste TOO sweet to me. It’s not the other way around lol…. and what about stevia? How come it is always forgotten in these videos? I know it’s not artificial but it pisses me off it gets neglected so much. Just ban sugar already there are so many better alternatives.

  • Actually, in terms of tfa sweetener, which is 10% sucralose: If you use it at 1% in a recipe, it ends up as 0.1% sucralose in the mixed juice. Does anybody know how much sucralose is in Capella’s Super Sweet?

  • NOTE: While this list can hardly be exhaustive (of course), I think you should have mentioned Rebinia. It’s steviol glycoside, or rebaudioside A; it’s 200x sweeter than sugar (which is a common sweetness level); and it comes in granulated form, which can be used as a normal sweetener for drinks, etc. It can also be substituted 1:1 in baking, and is non-caloric as well. [Hey, since they’re all bad for you (as it turns out per this video), we may as well include a nice popular one that’s handy.] I use it to sweeten tea and Kool-Aid. Coca-Cola actually owns the exclusive rights to use it in beverages, but it’s sold in re-sealable pouches (like shredded cheese) as Stevia. It’s also sold as Truvia and as PureVia. Honestly, it’s the only one I like; can’t stand the others! ��������.

  • In college, they teach you a (sort of) joke idea to conceptualize the 3 laws of thermodynamics. It goes as follows: 1) You can’t win. 2) You can’t break even. And, 3) You can’t get out of the game. Who knew that these unbreakable laws also applied to dieting? It’s just not fair, I tell ya! Not fair at all. Sometimes I think the only way to lose weight is to quit your job, devote 12 hours a day to exercise, & stop eating all together. Either that, or have some evil guy curse you with, “*Thinner!* ���������� ����������.

  • Thank you for making this informative video! As I am at tears because I am trying to do the keto diet without any weight loss. Well I use lots of splenda each and everyday. I use it in my coffee and iced tea. I use about 15 packs everyday sometimes more. So maybe this is why I can’t lose?? I have done keto in the past and I was able to lose but I don’t think I was using splenda then. Anyway I have been trying to figure out what is going on soooo I hope this is the culprit I have been looking for!!! Today I will not have anymore splenda and see what happens. Thanks again for helping us out here……..

  • After the 34th time listening
    I know I understand the shits get in yo cells which cause the glucose to rot the cells makes it all Dirty and then you still get fat -Bc it makes your cells retain fat THEE END

  • 14:32 I was disapointed that there wasn’t more articles:) Incredibly concise and clear summary from your part. Thats an easy sub from me.

  • So. Why isn’t this study being laughed at the same way the conspiracy theorists that have been saying this for over 20 years were?

  • This video wouldn’t explain why but sweeteners that have Maltodextrin or Dextrin in them trigger insulin. I just heard about it in one of Dr. Eric Berg DC’s YouTube videos.

  • They cause constipation! After years of a severe problem with it, it disappeared a few months after abstaining. Evidently, they line the digestive tract and can’t be absorbed. Took months to scrape away my 40+ years of them!

  • Interesting. I must have a weird palate. I cannot stand any juice that has sucralose in it. That’s all I’ll taste if it’s in there and it’s disgusting. I wish juice manufacturers would have to list it if it were present since I’ve bought too much that uses it. That’s money wasted for me. I’ll never vape it.

  • I was really concerned at first, because this video just presents theories and speculations from inconclusive studies as facts, which is really bad. But then I was relieved to find some critical comments here in the comment section, taking into account what the linked sources actually say. This video is misleading, I’m disappointed. So guys, remember to stay critical.

  • Kanger occ 1.2ohm coil, they’re years behind in technology. I want the results with a 0.2-0.5ohm round wire coil at 35-50 watts at least.

  • Im on Ketogenic diet and have used splenda on the regular, but never been kicked out of ketosis. It will vary for different people, and also depends on the amount of carbs you have ingested prior to consuming the splenda.

  • I think it’s almost as dangerous to propagate partial science. i.e. they didn’t call them hemiacetals in the headlines of these studies. They purposefully call them formaldehyde releasing agents without knowledge of whether or not formaldehyde is being released before the body removes the hemiacetals. Formaldehyde has become a trigger term for cigarettes and the closer they can get e-juice to a cigarette in a consumer’s mind, the less reason someone has to switch. I’m not saying tobacco companies paid for this study, but when you use trigger words in study headlines instead of the actual compounds it raises questions. It appears the study actually uses the word formaldehyde right in the headline, which is nowhere in the study itself. Curioser and curioser.

  • From my antedoctal evidence, I noticed that I can eat a whole bowl of chipotle while drinking diet coke, but I can’t when I’m drinking water. So, I think it may make you wat more, but not from a hormonal point of view but rather a carbonated, sugar free point of view. It helps the contents settle in your stomach faster.

  • Your videos are always so great and informative I always link them in my videos when using sugar substitutes for my subs to bust any myths they have.

  • igor my man… awesome video.. i am just 3 min into the video, i thought i just pause for a thumbs up and a comment.
    Have to say your video presenting style is on point and superly entertaining….

  • Oh my God. I thought I could sit and listen to your message but I can’t. Sorry, You’re yelling and that’s annoying. I can’t handle it.

  • All the symptoms you described is also the same symptoms somebody has when their sugar is low. Low blood sugar triggers these same symptoms. It’s good the medical sees these symptoms and automatically it’s linked to something else when it’s really your body craving sugar and not getting it.

  • I just drink regular soda now just one 12oz can. I use to be a Diet Coke Addict. one 12 pack per day by myself. I do water and coffee or tea now. But mostly water.

  • It’s not bad for you. It’s actually extremely safe just like Alulose. All those Splenda claims are just relative to Splenda. Don’t take splenda.

    I’ve been taking energy drinks with Suclarose for 4 months now; and all of my workouts have been super explosive, especially with Bang and Celsius. I take Bang now specifically for the Creatine it has. I burn 900 calories daily in like an hour and never stop punching through.

  • there is no scientific proof that sweeteners cause insulin resistance as you keep claiming in your videos. Let me get away from this non scientific channel

  • the argument that zero-calorie sweeteners make you gain weight because you get cravings for real sugar is pretty damn lame. does that mean people are going to start getting sugar withdrawal sickness from sticking with artificial sweeteners? so your stomach’s going to say, “Wait, whats this fake sugar shit? Because you duped me, now i’m going to increase your craving for real sugar even more.” i don’t understand this shit at all. if you’re being disciplined, controlling your portions and counting your calories, this shouldn’t be an issue. its the person thats the issue, not fake sugar

  • Like Paul Dirac that unified the very small with the big things, with a Visualization math perspective, women that have the talent to inspire the good will spirit are doing a great job imaging so as normal people get more inspired to use their brains a little bit more or start studying things that have to to with the senses and intelect.

  • Lots of maybes, think, possibilities, theorises, ‘some’ scientists, psychology and fact free conclusions.
    Reads more like a sugar industry paid for infotainment spot.

  • You are absolutely right vaping with sucralose tfa super sweet gave me black tooth that went away after brushing teeth but now I don’t use it anymore and never had that problem again

  • If these studies had any small trace of validity, wouldn’t making candy be the most dangerous job in the world because of the supposed formaldehyde being emitted? (heating sugar past its point of stability)

  • Guess what 1g sugar has 4calories,
    Guess what 1g aspartame has 4 calories,
    Aspartame is 400 times sweeter and u use 400times less so good bye calories…
    Also the sweeter u only metabolize 2% of it the rest is shat out… So hence its under 1cal a drink
    Also ur allowed to be within 10% of calories when labeling a product a lot in this case haha

  • I don’t see anything convincing here, really as long as you’re aware of what you eat and make sure you don’t compensate lack of sugar with other foods, you’re fine.

  • 0:24 Common misconception. Cancer risk increases with age, so what happens when people live longer?. They stop dying from polio and other stupid reasons and start living long enough to die from cancer.

  • So how will I know which sweetener is being used in the juice that I am vaping? Contact the company I guess maybe and see if they’re willing to share that information?

  • I used to drink diet coke because regular coke turned out to be too sweet and not sharp enough for my tastes. I was already relatively resistant to sweet things even as a child (thus never experiencing a sugar high, ever), so I mainly enjoyed other flavors instead not based on sweetness, because there was always that certain point where I could no longer taste sweet stuff in foods. The artificial sweetener did a bit of damage at first, enlarging the capillaries in my face was my first clue, to the point where I looked like a severe sunburn victim (and felt like one, too). I never experienced this with any other food or drink before I got into diet coke, so it was kind of obvious what caused it. The condition is called Rosacea, and things like broken blood vessels and pimples may also occur when it gets severe. I stopped when I realized diet coke was doing it to me, and I can’t really enjoy most coke drinks anymore without the Rosacea flaring up violently.

    Now I just drink (regular) Ginger beer and coffee. Artificial sweeteners may be seen as a good idea, but I can assure you, its not the best idea.

  • If you just use 1 or 2 packets a day there really wouldn’t be a point to count it… but I see what you mean about some people using 15+ packets! Great video! Should help many!

  • TBH, these are all conjecture. I’m not sure why a video was made about it without also cautioning that this is just conjecture. More research is needed and saying otherwise is irresponsible. People may make dietary decisions based on this video or justify going back to a sugary drink while not balancing it out with a more balanced diet.

  • Awesome video! Conclusion: artificial sweeteners safe, Australia and the Paul brothers not safe, and small dogs like tricep sweat.

    Only thing missing: the danger stevia poses to your finances. Damn, that crap’s expensive.

  • Thomas, 

    I was very disappointed when I spent my hard earned money on your “Science Based” Green Detox, to find out on the back in (other ingredients) that it had (Sucralose) in it. No wonder why it tasted like “apple pie.” I don’t understand why you would push something like this on the people that follow you. Immediately after I purchased your product, you had a salesman bombard my cell phone, calling me several times to persuade me more products on me. I felt like I was being scammed, and I was in total disbelief. He completely missed everything that I was saying to him on the phone, he only wanted to make a sale. It just completely turned me off, and for a while you really inspired me. I think you’re intelligent, just create a detox that you can proudly stand by, instead of leading with a mouthful of contradictions.

  • Enjoy your channel! I do have a question. I am quite fit, but drink 1-2 sugar free energy drinks a day. I do intermittent fasting everyday. I have read and seen content which states that the artificial sweeteners in these drinks still raise your insulin levels. I am trying to drop my body fat percentage, but since insulin negates the fat burning process, am I wasting my time by doing intermittent fasting? Am I burning up muscle since my body has depleted its glycogen levels?

  • I am a girl who loves sweet a lot. I can eat sweet 24×7 and not get tired of it. For me, the more I try to keep off sweet stuff (with sugars), the more I wanna eat it. So I resort to artificial sweeteners. At least it helps me stay same. I’ve been using Stevia since a very long time. I don’t see any side effects as such. But I would really like it if I could reduce the usage of it. I over-do it too much. But again, not being too judgemental about myself. It helps me stay sane, so I just go with it with the hopes that it will not screw up my health in the long run since there isn’t much research on it.

  • You know Igor, I was going to send this to my mom, because she is really against artificial sweeteners, but you sure have made that impossible with all the dick jokes! ��

  • Since I have gotten home from a long trip a couple months ago I have been drinking a lot of the sugar free drinks that come in the small squeeze bottles. I’m thinking this is really messing up my digestive system. Which led me to looking for videos about sucralose.

  • LOVE THE VIDEO…. use organic liguid stevia… starting at around.025 %… don’t vape poison GMO sugar sucrolose I would also add… use organic glycerin too and low pg in your mixture

  • My mom baked some pancakes with one tbs of a substance containing sucralose. She didnt know that it could be harmful nor did I know that it contained baked sucralose till after. Ate around 4 disc sized of those. Will I die?

  • Theres an easy solution guys… Take your unflavoured whey and just add 2-4 spoons of regular sugar. Just jump rope for 10 minutes extra to burn em off..Problem solved

  • I prefer Stevia. My qualm is when they cut it with Maltodextrin. What are your thoughts on Maltodextrin? From my understanding, it metabolizes into a fast acting carb source, but companies can hide it within the labeling and market the artificial sweetener as “0” calories…

  • Idk about weight but when I was younger and consumed tons of artificial sweeteners I got massive headaches from them, they stopped after I stopped consuming them

  • Can you make a video about bodybuilder switching to strength training/Power lifting program? Pros and cons of strength training? Will you lose a bit of gain (maybe like muscle size or aesthetic look) if you do switch?

  • Igor, back in the day (and probably still) chemists tasted all kinds of stuff. Everything is white so if you don’t know what something is, taste it.

  • Well I mean.. If you have the choice between diet soda and regular soda.. You should drink diet.

    Like I eat non-fat non-flavored yogurt and load it up with stevia and cinnamon.

  • loved this vid. I have artificial sweeteners in my diet and it helps curbs my cravings. it’s strange how some people think because you have a diet soda you can have something else higher in calories like it cancels it out somehow but it doesn’t. ��

  • Thanks Wayne for following up on this and keep us your viewers/Fans Informed we appreciate what you do for us and the whole Vape Community to use your word Peace Much love Little Aussie Follower

  • You’re right. In my experience, splenda, cooking spray, and forgotten oils and condiments can easily add up to a lot of calories. I always thought 2 packets of splenda was 1g carb, but now I know it’s pretty much 1:1. Good info!

  • What is very sad about this video from Tom is he correctly speaks against these artificial sweeteners but then adds sucralose to his green detox product… I didn’t know this until I read the side panel for other ingredients because it is not listed in the main ingredients panel…. please do explain, why you have sucralose in your product knowing how bad it is???

  • Liquid stevia drops win taste-wise hands down imo. Also literally 0 cals. (The liquid ones from NOW Foods are my fave esp the coconut and toffee flavors!)

  • I use to put at least 10 in 1 cup of coffee not gonna lie..i just use stevia now.. didn’t know they had calories those fuckers lol

  • Aspartame should be outlawed… it has bad side effects it causes blurred vision… artificial sweeteners should be avoided… it can mess up your hypothalamus glan… throws off your body temperature… you always feel cold or you always feel hot!

  • Im on Ketogenic diet and have used splenda on the regular, but never been kicked out of ketosis. It will vary for different people, and also depends on the amount of carbs you have ingested prior to consuming the splenda.

  • so basically another waste of a video, full of maybes and speculation and not answering the question it set out to answer. well done Muppet

  • This is why I use a combo of NN Monk fruit extract and Stevia in micro amounts. Same sweetness, super high burn points, so muting of recipes if you don’t use too much, and clean coils! Downside is cost. Do not compare NN to anything you buy in stores that have fillers. Downside is cost. Worth every penny in saved lungs and coils!

  • Oh my God. I thought I could sit and listen to your message but I can’t. Sorry, You’re yelling and that’s annoying. I can’t handle it.

  • I’ve heard that eating or drinking something very sweet can reset the palate and even reduce satiety during a meal. i have not experienced this since i don’t really eat sweets.So i’m thinking if you eat a huge meal and with drinking a soda between bites this could probably increase appetite?

  • P.S. And no, I don’t work for any of those companies. Never did. Just like the stuff, that’s all. I’m a super-taster. Can’t fool me. I can identify sweeteners by taste. I can distinguish between Coke, Pepsi, and RC… blindfolded. That’s just the way it is. ��������.

  • i got carnivor protein: fat, cholesterol, sugar, fluten and lactose free, but it has sucralose, is it really that bad? what are the effects?

  • One thing that worries me is I keep seeing them using a 1.2ohm coil at 20w. That is pretty high wattage for that resistance. Would most people vape it that high. When I use a 1.2 ohm I am in the 8-12w range. 20w would burn my coils.

  • I’m guessing you didn’t discuss sugar alcohols (e.g. erythritol) because they aren’t actually artificial, but at 6% the calories of sugar everyone that is interested in sugar substitutes should be aware of them.

  • I’m watching this while I’m stuffing my face with regular sugar and I don’t give a shit and seems like I’m even doing the right thing

  • If these studies had any small trace of validity, wouldn’t making candy be the most dangerous job in the world because of the supposed formaldehyde being emitted? (heating sugar past its point of stability)

  • Does anybody still believes Prof Peyton and his “science” after the his publication in 2015 “demonstrating” the hazard of ecigs based in dry puffs? After that results based on methodological misstakes, the group of Oregon University was granted with 3,5 million dollars from the NIH provided by the FDA Center of Tobacco Products.

  • Hey Sean, ive been working out for 1 month now, and ive been training every body part twice a week for about an hour a session, but a trainer told me because i just started working out i should be doing full body workouts 3 times a week but i dont like that style of training at all, your thoughts? thanks:)

  • Thanks for your work there.

    Is there any similar sweetener than succralose yet we could use at all?! Now it’s getting vegan maybe with some stevia liquids?!:p

  • Excellent! I have mixed for about two years now and have always stayed away from food flavorings. Don’t know why, I’m not that scary about such things (smoked for 52 years) but maybe a wise decision in light of this kind of research.

  • Ill keep using one drop per bottle as i have been for a year. I feel a lot safer than the guys vaping 60ml of super sweet liquid a day at 150 watts. I am going to use EM more though, get used to it so to speak.

  • Summary: The most interesting finding (could use a citation) says that sucralose may facilitate entry of more glucose into cells sampled from obese individuals. Next step is to see whether glucose actually enters the cells. Lifewater-type beverages that use sucralose probably won’t do any good for obese individuals trying to lose weight, according to this research.

  • I am hypersensitive to sodium saccharine and aspartame and although I’m retired now, I’ve discovered the full magnitude of my sensitivity only a few months ago. If I drink a few ounces of it in a diet drink, as opposed to getting only a tiny amount in toothpaste, for example, my reaction is within minutes, no build-up necessary. My throat closes up. I can breathe but swallowing is more difficult. Aspartame, which I’ve tried only once, makes me severely depressed and feel very weird for several hours after ingestion, but then it was gone by the next day. And by “try”, I mean I drank about 2 ounces of a drink I accidentally got with it in it. It was a Light Minute Made Lemonade.

    The amount of saccharine in a new brand of Kid’s Crest toothpaste I was using was causing my throat to swell, like I had something a little uncomfortable in my throat. I didn’t notice it until I switched to another brand, and the feeling in my throat went away. I went back to the Crest and it came back, so I did it to verify it was doing that. So for me, it’s like some people with a peanut allergy no amount is safe. I think if I drank 12 ounces of a diet drink I’d probably need to be hospitalized.

    Since I’ve been skinny for most of my life, with no effort to diet except to eat healthy foods which would allow me to feel optimal, and getting regular exercise, I never tried these diet products out of a desire to lose weight. As a kid, I remember just sampling diet drinks out of curiosity, thinking it would be better for my teeth, but I couldn’t actually drink a Fresca or Diet Coke because they tasted not just bitter, but rotten, truly vile. Any sweetness is overwhelmed by a putrid taste. Saccharine is the worst tasting, and aspartame is awful too, but better than saccharine, as you mentioned. I understood then that some people must think they don’t taste that bad.

    One summer when I was in my 40s, it was particularly hot and I was running longer distances, and thought I would try Gatorade for the electrolytes. I didn’t notice on the label that it was artificially sweetened until I got it home. I couldn’t believe a company would sell something like that to the public. I tried a few ounces of it, thought it tasted awful, undrinkable, and it made me sick.

    I agree with everything you said, particularly about what is unknown. We have not used these things for long enough to know the epigenetic effects and possible damage they do. And as far as weight control goes, more evidence is surfacing that diet drinks could be part of the obesity epidemic, not a solution.

    Any person suffering from severe depression of unknown origin who drinks diet drinks or uses aspartame should try going off them for a few weeks.

  • I have a suspicion that the FDAs role in “safeguarding” the public health, is to weed out the obvious poisons (unless their companies pay extra), and give a pass to the così-così ones.

    If the USG can keep folks juuuust sick enough that they can still work like cattle to pay taxes, yet still get tax money from sales of Rxs and medical procedures/staff (jobs, businesses, hospitals, etc), AND the money/perks from lobbyists while keeping the average American on privately funded health insurance (which usually have stockholders), why…. that’d be ideal for the rich (who pay very little in taxes!)

    Nah, I’m sure the FDA has your health concerns at heart
    ��������

    The question isn’t is Splenda (or whatever) safe, the question should be…is it HEALTHY. Is it actively promoting health, with benefits? If no, avoid it.

  • So basically no different than breathing the air outside. Which in itself should kill all of us because of the toxins and pollutants.

  • So the I looked at the ingredients in the zero sugar zero calorie power aide drinks I been drinking and it has sucralose in it. Should I not be drinking these? After watching the video I  will guess I should stay away from them.

  • I think it’s almost as dangerous to propagate partial science. i.e. they didn’t call them hemiacetals in the headlines of these studies. They purposefully call them formaldehyde releasing agents without knowledge of whether or not formaldehyde is being released before the body removes the hemiacetals. Formaldehyde has become a trigger term for cigarettes and the closer they can get e-juice to a cigarette in a consumer’s mind, the less reason someone has to switch. I’m not saying tobacco companies paid for this study, but when you use trigger words in study headlines instead of the actual compounds it raises questions. It appears the study actually uses the word formaldehyde right in the headline, which is nowhere in the study itself. Curioser and curioser.

  • What’s up wayne… iam allways thankful for the love you put into the vape community… I have mixed a few of your recipes… Suicide Bunny and Bro nuts right on the money, the one I can’t get a grip on is Strawberry Vanilla Ice cream cone (HELP ME)… I hear you have a recipe book, If this is true please send me a link to where I can buy it… I’m always traveling, yes I do rely on your recipe as I don’t have the time to play with mixing… Thank you keep doing what you doing… you doing a wonderful job…

  • Really good video, thanks a lot. Is there any information from the manufacturers how many sucralose is in the singleflavors, f.e. fruits? As a chemist i was always a little concerned about heating up sucralose and i never used it since i started mixing 3 years ago… but about 3 month ago i started adding it a little bit… now this…. damn it ^^

  • I understanding needing a constant to allow for exact results to be measured and that is why the 20 watt only was used. In reality though not many devices besides pod devices are restricted to that wattage. Yes you can use a 200 watt mod and vape only at or below 20 watts.

    It would be I think useful if there was a test done at say 60 watts. Would there be an increase in the amount of what is being reported released or would there be a decrease because of the extra amount of heat destroying the ability of those compounds to form.

    It is good to know of what potential harm could be caused by something you choose to do but the right to still be able to make that choice should be left up to you and not a government believing they know best. Data always changes but laws rarely ever do so I hope people are wise before they allow government to act on their behalf.

  • I was already 3 min in the video when i realized i hadn’t pressed the like button… on my way to confess my crime to the police…

  • Marc, in regards to intermittent fasting do you think that the addition of water flavor enhancers (MIO) break the fast? I’ve seen it argued both ways and the argument it does stems from the purported insulin spike you were talking about. I only ask because sometimes water is just plan boring to drink.

  • I sprinkle not even 1/4 of the package in my tea,a pack will do 3 cups of tea for me and its plenty surgery,same with my coffee
    plus you don’t need pre workout and after workout shit powder,eat clean and be natural,fucken snake oil peddler

  • Sean, i have to disagree that there is no evidence for direct influence from artificial sweeteners. There is a study showing that sweeteners alter the gut microbiota and induce glucose intolerance. Please google for “nature13793” to find the study.

  • stevia even makes me love oatmeal! a litle bit of watter and microwaved to make it granola, it can be so beneficial if you like sweet taste better than salty like me, when you have to eat 3500+ calories on a bulk you can make your diet so much more enjoyable, it makes me feel like im cheating at every meal but it makes stuff so good that i would be way too starving for more sweet if i was cutting. there is another good artifical sweetener that i love is the flavdrop from myprotein! 😉 idk what is it made out of though. great vid as always!

  • I’ve been using Splenda for 7 years and I’ve no weight gain issues.
    Plus it helps preventing tooth decay. I drink a lot of tea and coffee daily and I used to add sugar which boosted tooth decay. (bacteria don’t process Splenda)
    Since I started using Splenda, I don’t have that sugary leftover taste in my mouth.
    I don’t do sports either. I think working in a gym is the most `artificial` thing you could do to your body.
    Tricking your muscles into believing that you are an Egyptian slave working in the construction of Pyramids is the king of being `artificial`.
    I know Splenda is safe and I’ve used my own body to test it.

  • They need to do study like this on all the sweetners. I love vaping but I intuitively have always had bad feelings about vaping super sweet vapes. I’m just making my own juice now. Other people have proven themselves to be not out for my own best interests lol common sense…

  • After the 34th time listening
    I know I understand the shits get in yo cells which cause the glucose to rot the cells makes it all Dirty and then you still get fat -Bc it makes your cells retain fat THEE END

  • So you guys don’t give the amount you would have to ingest to create those effects, don’t explain the false positive in the studies (fat people that drink diet soda already are going to continue unhealthy eating, not the other way around), and then you guys fail to offer counter examples of studies showing no effect beyond plausible effects to the microbiome. Come on man.

  • One thing you don’t say here that is a little dishonest is sucralose was shown to have this effect on (Rats) in high dosage. For it to have the same effect on the human gut we would need to use it in amounts that no one could possibly find appetizing. In short unless you are eating this stuff by the spoonful it is most likely not killing off 50% of your gut bacteria. And is probably having almost no effect on your health. Now Dr’s could always find something down the road that is harmful with sucralose but that is true with everything you take into your body.

  • Aspartame absorbs into the body, where it breaks down into methanol, aspartic acid, and phenylalanine and all three metabolites naturally occur in the body no matter what dose you ingest. Taken SEPARATELY…however… can cause harm in VERY, VERY high doses.

    WHO THE HELL WOULD TAKE THESE CHEMICALS SEPEARATELY IN SUPPER MEGA SKY HIGH MONSTER DOSES ANYHOW?

    So you know just ONE BANANNA, yes just one bananna has 10TIMES the amount of methanol than does on can of diet soda!!! WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT? Don’t take my word for it… Reasearch it for yourself!

    1 can of diet soda has 180mg of Aspartame

    Harmful Ingested amounts for a 200lb person:
    METHANOL (10% of Aspartame by Vol) 45.5g or 500 mg of methanol per kg of body weight
    That = 237 Gallons of Diet Soda!!!

  • I used regular sugar cane sugar before to put in my coffee..i changed to Splenda just cutting out sugar like that completely within 6 months I lost 40 lb

  • Liquid stevia drops win taste-wise hands down imo. Also literally 0 cals. (The liquid ones from NOW Foods are my fave esp the coconut and toffee flavors!)

  • This video was brought to you in part by the makers of SUGAR, I’ve been using Splenda for years without issues, I was a borderline diabetic and after cutting carbs and replacing sugar with Splenda my health improved drastically.. so Fk you!! Keep using that fkng diabetes and obesity causing poison called sugar

  • glad i stayed for the entire video, love the pug! also thank you for giving me some ammunition for my annoying coworkers who make fun of me for only drinking diet soda. ive been drinking diet soda for about 10 years and its helped me enjoy a cold beverage with every meal and keep my bodyweight in control (because it literally does nothing!)

  • Ha, it is very unlikely that artificial sugar will cause you to produce insulin so you can mention that, also you can’t state “aRtIfIcAl SuGaR iS tRaInInG oUr BrAiN tO wAnT sWeEtEr AnD sWeEtEr ThInGs”, that’s not significant because it will be no different from real sugar in that sense, however if you have any form of self control it is no problem. Nag and whine little fools but it is a low calorie option which does play into dieting regardless of what people say. If you use in moderation and have no pre existing conditions, you will be much better off consuming artificial sweetened drinks and gums than real sugar options. Also honey, honey, honey People are different than test mice who have been exposed to pure sweeteners equivalent to thousands of artificially sweetened sodas in a short period of time, no one will get cancer from the soda alone, you’d sooner suffer from acid intake and many other problems. Yeah water is better but soda is a tasty treat which I do find unnecessary but I hate the people who hastily grab a small bit of research and run with it.

    Ooo and I’m glad they didn’t mention it, 0 calorie sodas actually do have calorie and I hate it as an argument because it’s almost always less than about 10.

  • A major problem with most of the powdered form of sucralose, such as Splenda is that that crap is nearly all(almost 100 percent) maltodextrin. Maltodextrin is basically a very short chain of glucose molecules and breaks apart instantly, thus maltodextrin has a glycemic index of 115, actually greater than pure glucose(dextrose) at 100. Maltodextrin is used in Splenda as a carrier and it is basically highly fluffed up sugar. The Splenda company lies with its food facts by using the stupid FDA allowance that anything less than 0.5 gms can be ROUNDED DOWN to Zero. They make their serving size stupidly low, and get under this 0.5 grams, calling the grams of sugar 0. I hate that. I use Sucralose as drops, of just pure sucralose solution, no maltodextrin and have never found that budges my blood glucose, although the stuff I put it in might. I wonder how many of the studies that show it affecting Blood glucose have use the versions with maltodextrin? Bottom line, avoid Splenda and it knock-offs that have maltodextrin. I make my own drops from pure powdered sucralose I got online. 4 ounces is the equivalent of 250 lbs of sugar. I then make drops from that with about 2 tsp in 8oz distilled water, so that 1-2 drops equals about 1 tsp sugar.

  • it’s a hell of a lot better than high fructose corn syrup which is in most processed food (even in white bread). I got off Dr. Pepper and switched to “Sparkling Ice” drink, and eliminated as much processed foods as I can, I think it is a step in the right direction. Manufacturers should start thinking of switching to Stevia which is a lot less harmful and does not allow more glucose into the body’s cell as Splenda (sucralose). I think I will write Rainwater Beverage Company and see if they will consider using stevia instead of sucralose into their beverages. They could market it as one of the healthiest sweet drinks on the market. All its other ingredients are quite okay and it has a lot of added micronutrients already.

  • I’ve been consuming heavy amounts of artificial sweeteners for a little over two decades now, daily. I’m now in my 40s. So far, nothing but I’ll surely donate my body to science when I’m dead so they can see the ultra-long term effects of it.

  • I drink Splenda in coffee every single day (3 cups, 4 packs per cup). It doesn’t do anything to make me gain weight. I’ve been doing it for 20 years. I don’t use Splenda in anything else and I never use cane sugar. All my blood work is normal and I’m 59.

  • Would you do a short video on monster drinks? I know you like them as do I and I was wondering if you could do a video on the break down of the nutrition facts (for the zero sugar) brand. I know the use erythritol as a sweetner and some other ingredients like taurine. As well the caffine content doesnt seem that high to me.Anyway hopefully you can do a short one on this to let us all know thatnks!

  • I was already 3 min in the video when i realized i hadn’t pressed the like button… on my way to confess my crime to the police…

  • This one took a LONG time to make so hopefully you guys like it and if you do, make sure to leave this video a like as it lets me know you enjoy this “video essay” style and it tells me to make more!

  • LOVE THE VIDEO…. use organic liguid stevia… starting at around.025 %… don’t vape poison GMO sugar sucrolose I would also add… use organic glycerin too and low pg in your mixture

  • I have a suspicion that the FDAs role in “safeguarding” the public health, is to weed out the obvious poisons (unless their companies pay extra), and give a pass to the così-così ones.

    If the USG can keep folks juuuust sick enough that they can still work like cattle to pay taxes, yet still get tax money from sales of Rxs and medical procedures/staff (jobs, businesses, hospitals, etc), AND the money/perks from lobbyists while keeping the average American on privately funded health insurance (which usually have stockholders), why…. that’d be ideal for the rich (who pay very little in taxes!)

    Nah, I’m sure the FDA has your health concerns at heart
    ��������

    The question isn’t is Splenda (or whatever) safe, the question should be…is it HEALTHY. Is it actively promoting health, with benefits? If no, avoid it.

  • They don’t for me, I have been having for good few years as sugar would give my teeth ache after while and j have sensitive teeth and I have fast metabolism no fait gain and most of this is overreaction they did the same in England by the daily mail claiming eating bacon will give you heart attack or cancer

  • You guys should base your videos on actual research papers and draw conclusions directly from them, not news articles. Just my two cents.

  • Have you ever heard of THAUMATIN? It’s impossible to find it commercially safe for “carp feed”. It’s a natural edulcorant from African fruit and n! times sweeter then stevia with no “glacial” aftertaste

  • Thank you Wayne, I’m going to write an article about it on our forum straight away and let non English speaking people know about this, and thank you for keeping us all updated on all aspects of mixing and health!!

  • Despite whatever you have heard the best one is SACCHARIN, THE ORIGINAL ARTIFICIAL SWEETENER. Read all “studies” critically and the whole history about its use and the “experiments” PERPETRATED by the Sugar lobby; never in humans by the way

  • From my antedoctal evidence, I noticed that I can eat a whole bowl of chipotle while drinking diet coke, but I can’t when I’m drinking water. So, I think it may make you wat more, but not from a hormonal point of view but rather a carbonated, sugar free point of view. It helps the contents settle in your stomach faster.

  • Sean, may you please make a video about whether you should weigh your meals frozen, thawed, or cooked? Meals including meat/anything frozen?

  • i got carnivor protein: fat, cholesterol, sugar, fluten and lactose free, but it has sucralose, is it really that bad? what are the effects?

  • Thanks for this vid. I’m sick of this myth and others about artificial sweeteners. Sugar industry has been reaping benefits from it for years.

  • Theres an easy solution guys… Take your unflavoured whey and just add 2-4 spoons of regular sugar. Just jump rope for 10 minutes extra to burn em off..Problem solved

  • They don’t do studies in human animals and other animals because big money = Not paying for it and humans don’t want to be in the trials. We all know it’s horrible for the body. (Not the worst) This guy Brent isn’t really qualified. He’s just reading the study and has knowledge. It is so much more less unhealthy (not healthy) as retail cigarettes. Also, the 100s of millions of dollars just each US state lose in tax revenue and the rest of the world. They want to get rid of vaping completely. Anything to brand it as unsafe.

  • This stuff is poison. I worked in a Splenda plant years ago. The guys mixing it had to wear hazmat suits and I kept a respiratory infection the entire time I worked there. I don’t think something that is healthy requires a masks and suits to process for human consumption. DON’T eat it!

  • Although all this research may be true, as of today there are no known clinically significant side-effects of sweeteners. They are safer than high fructose corn syrup which is the single, common cause of obesity in USA,

  • It doesn’t raise insulin as diabetics consumed them in large quantities, so your information is inaccurate. Your credibility is questionable.

  • Really good video Vitruv!! But it seems kinda weird going from really serious and scientific to sarcasm and jokes… individually they’re good but in combination sometimes make some instances kinda weird

  • Using sweeteners surely changes our preference to what food should taste like. So having this in our diet wouldn’t surely movitave us to eat GI high foods in general thus contributing to weight gain? Reprogramming our taste in this way (or in any way) seems stupid. How food tastes contributes to what we think we should be eating.
    Splenda causes a known “laxative effect” so it disturbs our gut process there are a few theories as to why but ultimately we need our gut process working well and our gut flora in good health.

    I also wonder what it does to the environment after it passes through our bodies.

  • I used to love using Splenda until I discovered Whole Earth sweetner with Monk fruit. It tastes a lot bette and a lot more like sugar to me. I still count each packet as 1 calorie because I use more than 4 a day lol.

  • Thanks for dropping knowledge with videos. I’m New to your stuff, New to fitness in general but for a lot of useful info out of your channel. Respect

  • I had to use sucralose last week, I prefer to use stevia sweetener or nothing at all but anyway I used 2% and its been bugging me ever since. I need to get more stevia, maybe just get a load of it and just stop using sucralose… if for nothing more than saving coils, but I dunno, I don’t think I want to use it in any situation now. If we expect other people to vape our liquids then we need to be sure and we need to be aware of the alternatives. Wayne bro… please do a video on alternatives to Sucralose especially my favorite Stevia, I find it blends nicely and isn’t nearly as noticable it would be great to have an educated rundown of these options.

  • Should people who are obese and have insulin resistance not diabetes use Splenda and Splenda products? I use it to sweeten my oatmeal everyday and I eat sugar free fudge pops and use water flavor enhancers like MiO in my water everyday which all have Sucrolose as an ingredient. Any advice?

  • This is why I use a combo of NN Monk fruit extract and Stevia in micro amounts. Same sweetness, super high burn points, so muting of recipes if you don’t use too much, and clean coils! Downside is cost. Do not compare NN to anything you buy in stores that have fillers. Downside is cost. Worth every penny in saved lungs and coils!

  • It is really pretty simple. Avoid ALL artificial sweeteners. Reduce sugar consumption by using some stevia or monk fruit extract, which are natural sweeteners, in place of some or all of the sugar. Also, some sugar alcohols, such as erythritol, are ok if consumed in SMALL amounts.

  • I’ve heard that eating or drinking something very sweet can reset the palate and even reduce satiety during a meal. i have not experienced this since i don’t really eat sweets.So i’m thinking if you eat a huge meal and with drinking a soda between bites this could probably increase appetite?

  • You’re right. In my experience, splenda, cooking spray, and forgotten oils and condiments can easily add up to a lot of calories. I always thought 2 packets of splenda was 1g carb, but now I know it’s pretty much 1:1. Good info!

  • One thing that worries me is I keep seeing them using a 1.2ohm coil at 20w. That is pretty high wattage for that resistance. Would most people vape it that high. When I use a 1.2 ohm I am in the 8-12w range. 20w would burn my coils.

  • I’m curious how sucralose is processed in the body. does it just promote an insulin Spike and then is excreted or does it get broken Down and stored like sugar?

  • My prewprkout has sucralose and a bunch of artificial shit in it. I need to buy pure beta alanine and caffeine so I can make my own unflavored preworkout…

  • Now owned by BAYER. Monsanto’s 2 biggest sellers Nuta Sweet and Roundup…. When your product earns billions of dollars in profit, why would you admit it’s killing people. Also the bringers of DDT and Agent Orange Bless em….

  • 14:32 I was disapointed that there wasn’t more articles:) Incredibly concise and clear summary from your part. Thats an easy sub from me.

  • I use splenda all the time. It has zero effect on my blood glucose levels. Infact, my A1C improved recently but mostly attributed to my new diabetic med. I have been consuming Splenda for years.

  • People, please stop consuming Splenda, aspartame. All of that stuff is poison. You think I don’t know what I’m talking about? Stop eating it for one week and see how much better you feel.

  • I’d only care about these studies if its compared to actual sugar e.g. how much more does natural sugar generate insulin resistance compared to artificial sweetners etc.

    Just saying it out like that means very little in a practical sense relative to other diets.

  • Most people here are scared of sucralose but yet you eat carcinogenic meat, lots of white flour and sugar products. When’s the last time any of you had some broccoli, black beans, or sweet potatoes?

  • I get the most horrendous headaches when I use Spenda. I ultimately had to stop using it. Long term use (as I’ve read) contributes to Alzheimer’s and Parkison’s disease. It’s also been said to contribute to symptoms of Dementia.
    Gotta be careful folks!!!

  • Look up surcalose. It’s bleached sugar.
    Of course sucralose doesn’t cause weight reduction! Not eating sugar causes weight reduction. Sucralose causes a reduction of sugar intake, by replacing it.
    Stevia and monk fruit are the sweeteners of the future. You’ll have to dig for them though, because sugar products/byproducts make too much money for corporations to give up on. Would you like some Mountain Dew with your Snickers bar?

  • I used regular sugar cane sugar before to put in my coffee..i changed to Splenda just cutting out sugar like that completely within 6 months I lost 40 lb

  • You’re better off having actual sugar or cane sugar in smaller quantities. But having Splenda once in a while won’t kill you. Not my first choice but if you’re the type that dreads plain black coffee then just pour half or the small packet on a 8-10oz cup

  • Im cutting it out of my diet as of today. Once I was reading up on how it messes up your digest system im going to do a study for the next 2 months. For the last 3 years I used high amounts of sweeteners and noticed bloating side fat and I have a feeling its slowing down / corrupting my digestive system.

    i was reading

    The researchers in this latest study found that the artificial sweetener, sucralose, commonly found in diet foods and drinks, increases GLUT4 in these cells and promotes the accumulation of fat.

    Or

    They observed that when exposed to only 1 milligram per milliliter of the artificial sweeteners, the bacteria found in the digestive system became toxic. To grow in bodybuilding I need my digestive system on point not toxic. All nutrients are needed. So like I said im going to live without sweeteners for the next 2 months and see what happens to my overall health.

  • touchy subject artificial sweeteners are poison I left diet sodas I lost weight and headaches I don’t intake sugar as I have been diabetic for 19 years

  • At a potluck, I ate several cookies. I later learned they were made with Splenda not sugar. That night, I had stomach cramping like never before. I did an internet search on Splenda. I now feel I was poisoned by sucralose, the ingredient in Splenda. I very rarely drink diet drinks or any artificial sweeteners. Never again. Now I read ingredient labels carefully.

  • I use true stevia (no AS) it’s more expensive but well worth it.

    Splenda is used for emergency purposes if I’m out of stevia. I have a bag of stolen gas station artificial sweeteners in my cabinet as backup. Great video Marc! ��

  • Really Loving These New Videos You Have Been Making Recently! �� Valuable Information For The Diy Community/Vaping Industry And It Is Much Appreciated! ��Thank You, Sir!

  • Hi Igor!���� I’ve discovered your channel days ago and I immediately subscribed����I love your content so much!! So interesting and you are also really funny �� you are amazing�� thank you so much

  • Since I have gotten home from a long trip a couple months ago I have been drinking a lot of the sugar free drinks that come in the small squeeze bottles. I’m thinking this is really messing up my digestive system. Which led me to looking for videos about sucralose.

  • Your videos are always so great and informative I always link them in my videos when using sugar substitutes for my subs to bust any myths they have.

  • I’ve always heard it causes cancer so stay away from diet soda pop ect. So it should be fine in soda since it’s not heated?? Or is there a heating process to making the soda? Hmm? I try to stay away from sugar but everywhere I look and buy zero sugar products I find Splenda in it..�� I hope there’s more research into this stuff since sugar is bad and so is this stuff. But what is worse is the real question. Right?

  • You are absolutely right vaping with sucralose tfa super sweet gave me black tooth that went away after brushing teeth but now I don’t use it anymore and never had that problem again

  • A major problem with most of the powdered form of sucralose, such as Splenda is that that crap is nearly all(almost 100 percent) maltodextrin. Maltodextrin is basically a very short chain of glucose molecules and breaks apart instantly, thus maltodextrin has a glycemic index of 115, actually greater than pure glucose(dextrose) at 100. Maltodextrin is used in Splenda as a carrier and it is basically highly fluffed up sugar. The Splenda company lies with its food facts by using the stupid FDA allowance that anything less than 0.5 gms can be ROUNDED DOWN to Zero. They make their serving size stupidly low, and get under this 0.5 grams, calling the grams of sugar 0. I hate that. I use Sucralose as drops, of just pure sucralose solution, no maltodextrin and have never found that budges my blood glucose, although the stuff I put it in might. I wonder how many of the studies that show it affecting Blood glucose have use the versions with maltodextrin? Bottom line, avoid Splenda and it knock-offs that have maltodextrin. I make my own drops from pure powdered sucralose I got online. 4 ounces is the equivalent of 250 lbs of sugar. I then make drops from that with about 2 tsp in 8oz distilled water, so that 1-2 drops equals about 1 tsp sugar.

  • Every since I was diagnosed with diabetes this has been my favorite sweetener. I have tried several of the others including the popular Stevia garbage, even a small amount of that crap tastes like chemical. I can tell you from years of experience with sucrolose that it doesn’t taste anything like sugar & there is no way it is sweeter than sugar. Sugar is way better, but since I can’t eat or drink a lot of sugar I have to settle for what taste good to me.

  • Kanger occ 1.2ohm coil, they’re years behind in technology. I want the results with a 0.2-0.5ohm round wire coil at 35-50 watts at least.

  • They did another scientific Study People who exercise three times a week, eat a well balanced diet, and get a full 8 hours sleep every night, still end up dying!!!

  • Thanks for your work there.

    Is there any similar sweetener than succralose yet we could use at all?! Now it’s getting vegan maybe with some stevia liquids?!:p

  • If you just use 1 or 2 packets a day there really wouldn’t be a point to count it… but I see what you mean about some people using 15+ packets! Great video! Should help many!

  • I am doing a 6 week weightloss challenge and just finished week 3. I’m consuming paleo meal plans and the only thing I have been consuming outside of this diet is large iced sugar free vanilla iced macchiatos made with almond milk about 3 times a week….I had no idea that sucralose was splenda! In these 3 weeks, I have been working out 45 mins 5 days a week and eating right but have not seen any changes in how my clothes fit or anything. I have thyroid issues and possibly pcos. How can I fix this??? I obviously will NOT be consuming sucralose anymore!

  • Not to knock the guy’s degree, but a minor undergraduate degree in chemistry doesn’t make you an expert in Chemistry. I did an elective in Japanese language with my BA, I’m now an expert in saying “konichiwa”

  • I have a question.
    What happens if you consume artificial sweeteners along a heavy carb diet?

    For example, I eat a big mac(high on fat/carb/pretty much everything) along with diet coke.
    My body will still get its sugar from the burger (so no excess insulin in my body) and I don’t need to worry about sugar in my drink.
    Will this still be an unhealthy choice?
    I’ve been doing that for a while, only drinking diet drinks along with heavy meals.

  • Don’t eat this poison. I swapped the sugar in my coffe with this poison and I was bloating for a week and also triggered my migraine.After I quit everything became normal…

  • LOL Aspertain I looked at the studies at minimum you have to drink 1600 cans of diet soda a day for years to get any affect from it lol the other crap in the soda would kill you before the Aspertain would you idiot.

  • ASPARTAME Watched this video while drinking a Diet Pepsi. Sometimes I drink Diet Coke. Sometimes Coke Zero. Sometimes up to 5x/day. Yup. I’m 45 years old; never been on medication (except for the occasional prescribed antibiotic); never been depressed; have a “normal” BMI. Yes, all anecdotal…I know. But still not too concerned about methanol. If I were, I’d be on a crusade to ban fresh fruits, vegetables, hazelnuts, and whiskey. And I’m not allergic to phenylalanine either (most people are not). My senior thesis was called the “Spectrophotometric Determination of Aspartame in Commercial Substances.” Learned I’d have to drink about 20 diet sodas per day to reach the Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) of the stuff. So there’s that. Translation = pass me another Diet Whatever, please!

    I still like this guy and will still watch his videos, but diet soda/artificial sweeteners is the least of this country’s health concerns.

  • The body still doesn’t know what to do with all the chemicals. I’d rather drink 40g of sugar from a can of coke than a bunch of chemicals in a diet version. At least the body knows what to do with sugar.

  • Researchers have studied whether methanol levels in the blood rise significantly when humans consume aspartame. In one study, subjects were given 34 mg-aspartame/kg body weight. Blood levels did not rise detectably [Filer Jr. and Stegink, 1989]. Another experiment showed that blood methanol levels did not rise even when subjects consumed 200 mg-aspartame/kg body weight [Stegink and Filer Jr., 1984]. In long term studies, researchers found that when humans consume aspartame, the resulting formate production is balanced by excretion, so that blood levels of formate do not change [Leon and others, 1989]. Another indication that humans can safely consume products sweetened with aspartame is that these products contain less methanol than some natural food substances. For example, fruit juices contain an average of 140 mg-methanol/L, but an aspartame-sweetened diet soft drink contains only 56 mg-methanol/L [Kretchmer and Hollenbeck, 1991]. According to this data, the methanol in aspartame poses no risk to humans.

    Effects of Aspartic Acid. [Stegink and Filer Jr., 1984]. [Kretchmer and Hollenbeck, 1991]. Under normal conditions, aspartic acid does not harm humans because it is excluded from the brain by the blood-brain barrier, but at high doses it can cross the barrier and cause damage.
    In a study on aspartic acid and glutamate, humans were given approximately 200 mg-aspartame/kg body weight. The combined plasma levels of aspartic acid and glutamate peaked at about 7 mM/100 mL [Stegink and others, 1980]. This level is only one-twentieth of that necessary to cause brain damage in infant mice [Kretchmer and Hollenbeck, 1991]. According to this data, humans who consume aspartame do not have to worry about being harmed by combined levels of aspartic acid and glutamate.

    Effects of Phenylalanine. A series of studies looked into this possibility. In one experiment, twelve normal individuals (six men, six women) and eight women heterozygous for PKU were given 34 mg-aspartame/kg body weight in one serving after a period of fasting. The levels of phenylalanine in the blood were only 5 microM/100 mL higher for the PKU-heterozygous subjects. According to this research, this small increase in phenylalanine concentration does not pose a risk to PKU-heterozygous individuals [Kretchmer and Hollenbeck, 1991].

  • You are exaggerating these products by sooooo freaking much. I don’t know if you are doing it on purpose, or you haven’t actually studied the data more thoroughly.

    It is unknown whether or not sucralose has any effect on your gut health. The study was done in rats. There is no research on humans.

    Sucralose does cause insulin spikes…in people who do not regularly consume Sucralose. Healthy individuals who regularly consume Sucralose do not show insulin rises or increases in blood sugar.

    The ingredients in Aspartame is found in…everything. Everything you eat contains the amino acid profile of aspartame. I mean come on.

  • Yes but Monk fruit and others are so dang expensive. Its like they jack up price on healthy foods when they should make it more affordable.

  • Definitely food for thought. From a MTL perspective, my vaping style would produce much lower amounts than what they tested. I would like, however, to know how something like stevia tests out.

  • Witch he probably used too much Pku in his system before he’s announcing this. Video plus 1981 was a different story back then as the years gone by they have been researching about this and the researchers are doctors not this over fearful nut. You gotta understand that 1the sweetness in the markets are safe if they weren’t explain why are they still selling at your grocery store why they not removed why so far no one complains how it effect their health than regular sugar why it suitable for diabetics why it works for them and the list goes on and on.

  • What are your thoughts on maldextrinadded into Starbucks sugar free syrups? I know it has a high glycemic index but if used in such small amounts I wander if it can even cause a spike?

  • I used to love using Splenda until I discovered Whole Earth sweetner with Monk fruit. It tastes a lot bette and a lot more like sugar to me. I still count each packet as 1 calorie because I use more than 4 a day lol.

  • Another great, informative video. Been stirring over this for a while and was part of the “Aspartame is evil mmkay” camp for a good while.

  • Splenda≠pure liquid sucralose. Please provide research or explain why pure sucralose as found in almost all zero calorie energy drinks is a negative while fasting/eating ketogenically. Thank you.

  • 11 weeks ago i completely changed my diet, i’ve been eating correctly now for 11 weeks and i’ve lost 17.5kg. Since i started i’ve been drinking 2 cans of a sugarfree sportsdrink every day that contains water, vitamins, caffeine and Sucralose, now after 11 weeks i notice a significant change in my weightloss speed, almost nothing is happening anymore even if im following my diet perfectly, i don’t want to quit the energydrinks, because if i don’t drink them i become very moody, and i hate everything, but i don’t want to quit my diet either, do you think the continous intake of sucralose can have anything to do with my weightloss speed slowing down?

  • it’s a hell of a lot better than high fructose corn syrup which is in most processed food (even in white bread). I got off Dr. Pepper and switched to “Sparkling Ice” drink, and eliminated as much processed foods as I can, I think it is a step in the right direction. Manufacturers should start thinking of switching to Stevia which is a lot less harmful and does not allow more glucose into the body’s cell as Splenda (sucralose). I think I will write Rainwater Beverage Company and see if they will consider using stevia instead of sucralose into their beverages. They could market it as one of the healthiest sweet drinks on the market. All its other ingredients are quite okay and it has a lot of added micronutrients already.

  • I personally never get any negative effects from diet coke, and I drink it in moderation. I am almost certain it’s ok for your health, it feels like you are citing irrelevant and flawed study’s because of personal bias towards aspartame…

  • Marc, in regards to intermittent fasting do you think that the addition of water flavor enhancers (MIO) break the fast? I’ve seen it argued both ways and the argument it does stems from the purported insulin spike you were talking about. I only ask because sometimes water is just plan boring to drink.

  • I thought the effect of artificial sweeteners was the stomachs and mouths reaction to the sweetness. Not particularly the nutritional or chemical composition that made artificial sweeteners. It’s the effect of the body detecting the sweeteness and releasing hormones or chemicals in response to that level of sweetenes that was the issue. Basically, regardless of the macronutrient content of an A.S., it could still affect insulin levels based on the sweeteness your mouth detects which tells the brain which triggers the pancreas to do it’s thang. Maybe my understanding is outdated tho

  • It gave the hubby some horrible itchy rash that thedoctors couldn’t figure out and then I remembered hearing something about splenda causing it in some people. So I told him to stop using it and within a couple of days he was better

  • Sean, what’s the correlation between testosterone and muscle growth? Are adolescents able to build more than 0.5lb of muscle per week?

  • Tom, I like your videos and content but I hope you can address my and (others’) concerns. Like other comments below, I was shocked to see in tiny print that your Science Detox drink contains sucralose. But more importantly, I also find it a contradiction on your part to say the following on http://www.Lakanto.com website -Thomas Delauer Celebrity Coach & Fitness Author
    “If I’m going to use a sweetener, I’m going to use Lakanto because I know where it’s sourced and the benefits of monk fruit are second to none when it comes to sweeteners.”
    If you are unaware of this ingredient in your product and care about the hypocrisy your creating, please check with your co-packer or manufacturer of your detox drink and see if they have done something against your knowledge. Please correct the problem!!

  • Most people here are scared of sucralose but yet you eat carcinogenic meat, lots of white flour and sugar products. When’s the last time any of you had some broccoli, black beans, or sweet potatoes?

  • https://www.webmd.com/diabetes/news/20180530/artificial-sweeteners-wont-affect-blood-suga
    ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS DOES NO CAUSE A SPIKE IN BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS BY THEMSELVES BECAUSE THEY DONT HAVE SUGAR IN IT!!! You cannot trick your body into thinking it has sugar. Most studies done regarding artificial sweeteners includes other type of foods that were taken with them, and there are a few reliable studies. However, artificial sweeteners when taken alone, does not increase insulin levels. Therefore, these wont increase your insulin levels during your fasting state since there is literally no readily available glucose for your body. Ketosis will continue.

  • Camarero me trae, por favor, un croissant con mermelada, mantequilla y un cafe con leche! Ahhh, pero con con endulzante artificial, que el azucar engorda. Ja,Ja,Ja!!

  • When I was on Atkins years ago (God help me) I was eating tons of Splenda I would literally tear packets open onto a plate and add cinnamon and just eat it that way to curb my sweet tooth lol

  • Igor, back in the day (and probably still) chemists tasted all kinds of stuff. Everything is white so if you don’t know what something is, taste it.

  • If a person already has diabetes what effects do these non calorie sweeteners have on their biology? Is it a measurable difference in how much more insulin they have to take or has that been looked into do you know? Great video keep it up!

  • Some “experts” claim it alters the balance of certain gut microbes and this is what causes the weight gain. It’s well known that some of these microbes break some undigested food down into short chain fatty acids which are absorbed back into the body through the colon wall.

  • My question is what is worse? Like I switched from Gatorade and Powerade (sugar) to the zero versions and propel (aspertame and sucralose) I like the idea of sports drinks like Powerade and propel because of the vitamins in them…but what is worse…the processed sugar…or aspertame and sucralose?

  • Don’t think I’m a hater because I’m not! I liked ur videos and even bought green detox off ur website, but was appalled at the fact that it contains sucralose��

  • Excellent! I have mixed for about two years now and have always stayed away from food flavorings. Don’t know why, I’m not that scary about such things (smoked for 52 years) but maybe a wise decision in light of this kind of research.

  • Interesting. I must have a weird palate. I cannot stand any juice that has sucralose in it. That’s all I’ll taste if it’s in there and it’s disgusting. I wish juice manufacturers would have to list it if it were present since I’ve bought too much that uses it. That’s money wasted for me. I’ll never vape it.

  • You lived in Australia and saw one spider lmao….there’s literally nothing on land in Australia that can kill you other than snakes and spider, which are in most countries…Australia has zero land predators other than dingos which are pretty small and never hurt anyone. other countries have bears, Tigers, mountain lions, lions, wolves and so many other things known to tear people apart. Also some of the less developed continents like Africa have a million diseases and parasites that will kill you. Australia has no more of that than any other country. not to mention way lower gun violence and basically zero random gun attacks. If you’re on land, Australia is one of the safest countries in the world….and honestly in the water is not that much worse.

  • Ur green detox shake is supposed to be a detox for the body so why put sucralose in the product when it messes up your gut bacteria! This is gonna mess up digestion hence not an effective DETOX! That is just not cool at all bruhhh

  • I think it’s important to note that the finished product is not the culmination of the raw materials.. Aspartame is not phenylalanine, aspartic acid or methanol…Although these are reagents in the process, the manufacturers of products like Equal and Nutrasweet have dedicated Quality departments to minimize off-spec product with very very little of these impurities in their finished products

  • Thought I was just hungry & couldn’t concentrate��…. but got it at the end, “…makes glucose, dont use it and it sits there”����.

    …..went back & researched, it’s acceptable on keto!��

  • I’m watching your videos and taking notes. Exceptionally useful and surprising!
    Thank you for doing research into these topics and making your videos they’re jaw-dropping.

  • Awesome video! Conclusion: artificial sweeteners safe, Australia and the Paul brothers not safe, and small dogs like tricep sweat.

    Only thing missing: the danger stevia poses to your finances. Damn, that crap’s expensive.

  • I sprinkle not even 1/4 of the package in my tea,a pack will do 3 cups of tea for me and its plenty surgery,same with my coffee
    plus you don’t need pre workout and after workout shit powder,eat clean and be natural,fucken snake oil peddler

  • this is why i dont respect thomas when it comes to advice. The science is clear, aspartame is not harmful in the amounts we consume.

  • Thank you for making this informative video! As I am at tears because I am trying to do the keto diet without any weight loss. Well I use lots of splenda each and everyday. I use it in my coffee and iced tea. I use about 15 packs everyday sometimes more. So maybe this is why I can’t lose?? I have done keto in the past and I was able to lose but I don’t think I was using splenda then. Anyway I have been trying to figure out what is going on soooo I hope this is the culprit I have been looking for!!! Today I will not have anymore splenda and see what happens. Thanks again for helping us out here……..

  • Should people who are obese and have insulin resistance not diabetes use Splenda and Splenda products? I use it to sweeten my oatmeal everyday and I eat sugar free fudge pops and use water flavor enhancers like MiO in my water everyday which all have Sucrolose as an ingredient. Any advice?

  • Dude, you just gained my gratitude not only for the content of this video but also for using Final Fantasy 8 soundtracks. Love it!!! ������

  • so basically another waste of a video, full of maybes and speculation and not answering the question it set out to answer. well done Muppet

  • You lived in Australia and saw one spider lmao….there’s literally nothing on land in Australia that can kill you other than snakes and spider, which are in most countries…Australia has zero land predators other than dingos which are pretty small and never hurt anyone. other countries have bears, Tigers, mountain lions, lions, wolves and so many other things known to tear people apart. Also some of the less developed continents like Africa have a million diseases and parasites that will kill you. Australia has no more of that than any other country. not to mention way lower gun violence and basically zero random gun attacks. If you’re on land, Australia is one of the safest countries in the world….and honestly in the water is not that much worse.

  • Summary: The most interesting finding (could use a citation) says that sucralose may facilitate entry of more glucose into cells sampled from obese individuals. Next step is to see whether glucose actually enters the cells. Lifewater-type beverages that use sucralose probably won’t do any good for obese individuals trying to lose weight, according to this research.

  • You’re better off having actual sugar or cane sugar in smaller quantities. But having Splenda once in a while won’t kill you. Not my first choice but if you’re the type that dreads plain black coffee then just pour half or the small packet on a 8-10oz cup

  • Totally agree with the last part. Have had friends order a salad, diet soda and then large fries and two packs of chili cheese… Oh, and some dip of course.

  • Some “experts” claim it alters the balance of certain gut microbes and this is what causes the weight gain. It’s well known that some of these microbes break some undigested food down into short chain fatty acids which are absorbed back into the body through the colon wall.

  • People, please stop consuming Splenda, aspartame. All of that stuff is poison. You think I don’t know what I’m talking about? Stop eating it for one week and see how much better you feel.

  • This is it. I’m done with Seeker. Your 3 minute blips of infotainment does way more harm than actually properly informing people and I will no longer be a part of it. So long and thanks for all the fish. /Unsubscribe

  • Could anyone direct me to if formaldehyde is created from when artificial sugar Acesulfame-K is left for a few days. I have noticed that it smells very strong of some type of paint thinners like acetone of some sort, maybe its methanol, its very apparent in Ribena. I read that in Gulf war the Coke turned to formaldehyde under the tarps in the hot sun. So I am guessing similar might be occurring.
    Show less.

  • Hey anyone heard of that Red Touch flavor? Its def a strawberry but not sure what kind exactly..when u buy raspberry sweet or watermelon sweet its prob sucralose.. Couldn’t imagine its natural sweetener but what do I know

  • i smoked for 35yrs, vaping got me clear of it, i use one drop of sweetner per 30ml, ill take my chances, ill do anything to keep from smoking cigarettes

  • 0:24 Common misconception. Cancer risk increases with age, so what happens when people live longer?. They stop dying from polio and other stupid reasons and start living long enough to die from cancer.

  • They don’t do studies in human animals and other animals because big money = Not paying for it and humans don’t want to be in the trials. We all know it’s horrible for the body. (Not the worst) This guy Brent isn’t really qualified. He’s just reading the study and has knowledge. It is so much more less unhealthy (not healthy) as retail cigarettes. Also, the 100s of millions of dollars just each US state lose in tax revenue and the rest of the world. They want to get rid of vaping completely. Anything to brand it as unsafe.

  • Ill keep using one drop per bottle as i have been for a year. I feel a lot safer than the guys vaping 60ml of super sweet liquid a day at 150 watts. I am going to use EM more though, get used to it so to speak.

  • They need to do study like this on all the sweetners. I love vaping but I intuitively have always had bad feelings about vaping super sweet vapes. I’m just making my own juice now. Other people have proven themselves to be not out for my own best interests lol common sense…

  • They don’t for me, I have been having for good few years as sugar would give my teeth ache after while and j have sensitive teeth and I have fast metabolism no fait gain and most of this is overreaction they did the same in England by the daily mail claiming eating bacon will give you heart attack or cancer

  • So how will I know which sweetener is being used in the juice that I am vaping? Contact the company I guess maybe and see if they’re willing to share that information?

  • Actually, in terms of tfa sweetener, which is 10% sucralose: If you use it at 1% in a recipe, it ends up as 0.1% sucralose in the mixed juice. Does anybody know how much sucralose is in Capella’s Super Sweet?

  • Dude, you just gained my gratitude not only for the content of this video but also for using Final Fantasy 8 soundtracks. Love it!!! ������

  • Where is your evidence that calcium ions entering the cell during neural impulses generates free radicals? Most of your sources in the video are not peer reviewed.

  • I thought the effect of artificial sweeteners was the stomachs and mouths reaction to the sweetness. Not particularly the nutritional or chemical composition that made artificial sweeteners. It’s the effect of the body detecting the sweeteness and releasing hormones or chemicals in response to that level of sweetenes that was the issue. Basically, regardless of the macronutrient content of an A.S., it could still affect insulin levels based on the sweeteness your mouth detects which tells the brain which triggers the pancreas to do it’s thang. Maybe my understanding is outdated tho

  • Thank you Wayne, I’m going to write an article about it on our forum straight away and let non English speaking people know about this, and thank you for keeping us all updated on all aspects of mixing and health!!

  • response to comments regarding the use of maltodextrin as a carrier… just use the pure form of sucralose. you cannot harm yourself consuming sucralose the size of half of a rice at a time…

  • Skinny syrups are delicious �� that’s what I use in my beverages. But I just found out they’re sweetened with Sucralose ( mostly known as Splenda) ����

  • Amazingly well done video. I always love the way you do these because you back everything with research. But really. You need a new Outro man.

  • My prewprkout has sucralose and a bunch of artificial shit in it. I need to buy pure beta alanine and caffeine so I can make my own unflavored preworkout…

  • It is really pretty simple. Avoid ALL artificial sweeteners. Reduce sugar consumption by using some stevia or monk fruit extract, which are natural sweeteners, in place of some or all of the sugar. Also, some sugar alcohols, such as erythritol, are ok if consumed in SMALL amounts.

  • Really good video Vitruv!! But it seems kinda weird going from really serious and scientific to sarcasm and jokes… individually they’re good but in combination sometimes make some instances kinda weird

  • I use true stevia (no AS) it’s more expensive but well worth it.

    Splenda is used for emergency purposes if I’m out of stevia. I have a bag of stolen gas station artificial sweeteners in my cabinet as backup. Great video Marc! ��

  • At a potluck, I ate several cookies. I later learned they were made with Splenda not sugar. That night, I had stomach cramping like never before. I did an internet search on Splenda. I now feel I was poisoned by sucralose, the ingredient in Splenda. I very rarely drink diet drinks or any artificial sweeteners. Never again. Now I read ingredient labels carefully.

  • Definitely food for thought. From a MTL perspective, my vaping style would produce much lower amounts than what they tested. I would like, however, to know how something like stevia tests out.

  • They told me artificial sweeteners were bad but couldn’t tell me why, just that I wouldn’t cut down. You explained it amazing, thanks,

  • So basically no different than breathing the air outside. Which in itself should kill all of us because of the toxins and pollutants.

  • I saw O2B mention this video on his InstaStory…love love LOVED it! Liked and subbed!!! I’ll probably be binging on your videos when I get home from work tonight. You just made my lunch break way more awesomer…(is that a word? Eh, well it is now.) ��������

  • Thanks for the informative video. I am confused. Why is sucralose one of the ingredients listed on the Science-Based Green Detox product that you sell? Why wasn’t this sweetened with monk fruit.?

  • What’s up wayne… iam allways thankful for the love you put into the vape community… I have mixed a few of your recipes… Suicide Bunny and Bro nuts right on the money, the one I can’t get a grip on is Strawberry Vanilla Ice cream cone (HELP ME)… I hear you have a recipe book, If this is true please send me a link to where I can buy it… I’m always traveling, yes I do rely on your recipe as I don’t have the time to play with mixing… Thank you keep doing what you doing… you doing a wonderful job…

  • Hey anyone heard of that Red Touch flavor? Its def a strawberry but not sure what kind exactly..when u buy raspberry sweet or watermelon sweet its prob sucralose.. Couldn’t imagine its natural sweetener but what do I know

  • I understanding needing a constant to allow for exact results to be measured and that is why the 20 watt only was used. In reality though not many devices besides pod devices are restricted to that wattage. Yes you can use a 200 watt mod and vape only at or below 20 watts.

    It would be I think useful if there was a test done at say 60 watts. Would there be an increase in the amount of what is being reported released or would there be a decrease because of the extra amount of heat destroying the ability of those compounds to form.

    It is good to know of what potential harm could be caused by something you choose to do but the right to still be able to make that choice should be left up to you and not a government believing they know best. Data always changes but laws rarely ever do so I hope people are wise before they allow government to act on their behalf.

  • They did another scientific Study People who exercise three times a week, eat a well balanced diet, and get a full 8 hours sleep every night, still end up dying!!!
