Artificial sweeteners found to cause cancer in mice

March 28th, 2022

For decades, scientists have posited that artificial sweeteners cause cancer in mice. Despite all of the evidence pointing toward an increased risk of cancer in mice, scientists previously determined that research on rodents just isn’t definitive about the risk that these sweeteners hold towards people. However, a new study has highlighted more troubling data about …
