ABSTRACT

Carcinogenic sweeteners are additives that when taken in excess triggers cancer. These additives provide sweetness to a variety of food, drinks, drugs, beverages, cosmetics e.t.c. from the onset of the discoveries of these sweeteners, their safety has been controversial. Many have reported the potential carcinogenic risks of these sweeteners, they include aspartame, sucralose, cyclamate, saccharin e.t.c. this review work aims to look intrinsically at various at various artificial sweeteners, their carcinogenic risk, their health benefits, their current standard of regulation and their acceptable daily intake.
