    Based on my general knowledge of artificial sweeteners, I would avoid almost all of them. Nutra-Sweet, Splenda, Aspartame all have huge downsides, including they act as neurotoxins and/or they alter gut microbiome over time.

    I was mildly surprised and fairly disappointed that the article gave little weight to the dangers of sweeteners like aspartame. Of course, a quick search of this site will turn up plenty of information on aspartame and related artificial sweeteners.
