From our family after switching to low-carb sweeteners, I worry about their safety.
I minded GAL, really want me and my family’s food as much as possible, clean but when combat Candida, you do what you have to do.
Now we don’t use saccharin or Newt, but we used stevia, xylitol and several others, and because I have a little sweet tooth, I started looking for a safe sweetener to find out the truth about them and their effects on our health.
In the market, there are many low-carb sweeteners, but many of them have and challenge is that there are quite a few concerns about how they are safe.
Now, the issue of concern is valid.
But some are not.
For this post, we will stick to concerns about xylitol cause tumors, but, I hope we will be to deal with the concerns of other sweeteners.
I don’t use sweeteners:
Saccharin (now there is evidence that may help prevent cancer)
United States Inuit
Dear (in addition to being a natural allergy relief)
I use sweetener:
Red Moss of sugar alcohols (smaller scale)
Coconut sugar (occasionally)
Helianthus tuberosus (not too much)
Luo Hanguo (I don’t often use this either)
More concessions, but those who are most welcome.
Xylitol causes cancer?
Find xylitol I’ve heard several times is one of the concerns, leading to cancer.
“There is some concern about the extremely high doses for a long time (over three years) can lead to cancer.
“The tumor growth for a long time although some animal studies suggest that high doses of xylitol, more research is needed. Source: 1,2 3
I literally spent hours on it – in the first and found very little information to back up any of this.
Only dead ends, lack of sources and lack of articles from the Internet.
At last–(! ), But I finally found some useful information.
Look at the “evidence” of xylitol before they lead to cancer, let us look at this first.
Xylitol is not evidence of tumors
In this study, by SATO, Wang, fan eyes, all pre-existing liver tumors of laboratory rats received 10% xylitol solution speeds of 2 g per kg of body weight. Researchers found that the synthesis in liver cell carcinoma acid-insoluble glycogen and protein xylitol sugar capacity is clearly insufficient. (Source)
This means that the researchers found (of pre-existing tumors) xylitol caused less harm than ordinary table sugar. Note before the tumor was present. So they were not caused by xylitol. However, unlike sugar, tumors do not grow as fast.
The evidence that xylitol caused tumors
See reference xylitol is the only source of the problem are as follows:
1. the natural medicines comprehensive database
Reference this source, xylitol is
“That may not be safe … … When oral high-dose, long-term use. Others worry that using very high doses for a long time can cause tumor growth (6815,6820). However, this effect has not yet been shown in humans. “
The following references given.
6815: b Lee, Sue d. xylitol to prevent cavities. My 1989; The 23:691-2.
6820: Pennsylvania · Clapaud alternative to sugar used in the diabetic diet. Diabetes care 1988; 11:174-82. “
I haven’t been able to find the first reference source. There is a reference to it, on the Internet, but I can’t find the publication (if any) themselves.
Second is by Philip · Clapaud · Road, entitled “use of alternative sweeteners in diabetes diet” review in 1988
In 1988, a registered dietitian (RD), Philippines · Clapaud, writing lots of academic review article entitled, “substitute sugar for use in diabetic diet.” In her review of the following statement (WebMD probably is):
“However, the xylitol in animals have shown that chronic intake associated with a tumor-induced and other pathological. Therefore, in the United States, current restrictions on the use of xylitol and can make any recommendations about its use of “sport 177.
There is, however, no source reference to support this statement.
Of course, this statement, you would have to ask the following questions about · Ms Clapaud’s statement:
“Chronic” means what?
Xylitol is being eaten?
“Other pathology (ies)”, what does she mean?
In this animal?
I assume this is WebMD and RxList is referring to the “source”.
In addition, it is important to remember that WebMD and RxList multinational groups, so they could use each other as the source.
However, this second source is interesting.
2. the mouse bladder tumor and xylitol
In summary, dietary range consisting of xylitol in male mice develop bladder stones. (See full text of the study)
“Some developed bladder stones mouse bladder inflammation and benign and malignant tumors. Female mice developed no unusual symptoms, and no male mice fed xylitol as their diet of 2% “.
Things to note on the study:
Only a xylitol problems in male mice. What was that for?
No similar effect was found in 2, 10 and 20% women, 2%
Xylitol for men or 20% of sucrose group.
It is important to note here, we see some on the bladder calculi relativity. “Some” benign and malignant tumors in mice. (Source)
Also worth noting is that when female mice fed up of the facts shows that increasing 20% sucrose diet. (Source)
I ask the question:
“Some” is? Is it 1 or 2 mouse? Or 3? That really is relevant for you?
Why is this only in male and female mice does not affect?
We are not rats. Xylitol causes problems in many dogs, but humans can eat it. Xylitol in mice as human beings the same effect?
Mice were fed much xylitol? If you translate xylitol is the amount used in the study of the human diet, 200–400 calories from a 2000-calorie diet will need xylitol (teaspoon or tablespoon 7-14 21-42).
This is xylitol, a lot and for a long time been eaten.
So this is the equivalent of 16 weeks of xylitol, 3/4 cup a day for adults.
I know I’m certainly not doing–even with my sweet tooth.
In addition, if you read all the studies in 20% of the diet, there does not seem to increase in tumors in rats, rabbits or dogs (this is an interesting study because xylitol dog should not run at all), however in some cases noted other effects.
So–and a lot of things, I think we have to make their own decisions, on it.
Xylitol can cause cancer?
Or is it just a false scare tactic?
This is my word and sweeteners.
Everything should be modest. It is not a good idea to eat too much meat, too much fruit, too much food, too much salt … Even too much water can damage your kidneys.
In our home, we mainly use pure stevia extract as the sweetener of choice. Stevia (that is, it causes infertility, DNA damage, low blood sugar, and so on), various articles there are concerns a bunch of research on the safety of Stevia, arguing that it is, in fact, very safe.
If possible, we will use natural honey, or perhaps as our main sweetener coconut sugar, glycemic load is for us, too, because we are suffering from Candida or other carbohydrate intolerance, we just can’t.
We mix sweeteners.
For example, any sweet recipe, I tried to split it into an equivalent sweetness much stevia, xylitol and erythritol, or some combination of those. In fact, it even helped those who don’t like stevia is really like the taste of Stevia.
If any of the sweetener turned out to be a problem, then we automatically dilute our exposure.
You can mix up your own combinations, or you can buy a sweetener also premixed, like in this sweet and tender of THM (which, by the way, tastes great too! ）
In addition, we are trying to get rid of treats, more vegetables and other whole foods-but I still have a sweet tooth, I like to eat food.
I sometimes will overdo it and other times I don’t. I bet many of you as well.
Xylitol causes cancer?
It seemed to the male mice were fed a diet for 16 weeks, 20% female mice does not appear to, and other animals do not do so.
But for me, I’m still going to eat xylitol.
I’m not worried about it.
I do, however, recommend the use of xylitol is derived from Birch (if possible), instead of corn, or at least a derived from non-GM maize.
This is a brand that I use.
How are you doing?
Do you use xylitol?
Do you think it can lead to cancer?
Post no xylitol cause tumors? First appeared in a whole new mother.
