Artificial sweeteners are even more acidic than white sugar. Note that honey (a natural food created by God) which contains minerals, is only slightly acidic because although it contains natural sugar it also contains minerals, vitamins and other components to help digest. Refined white sugar and artificial sweeteners contain no minerals or nutrients to speak of.

pH is a reference to the state of alkalinity or acidity in the body. 7 is neutral - neither acidic or alkaline. Below 7 is acidic, increasing in acidity as the number decreases. Above 7 is alkaline, increasing in alkalinity as the numbr increases. Ideal pH for the body’s fluids - urine, saliva, blood is 7.4 (slightly alkaline).

  1. Creates an ideal opportunity for pathogens (bacteria, viruses and fungus, such as candida) to survive.

  2. Reduces the level of oxygen creating an ideal opportunity for cancer cells to thrive.

  3. Can create tissue damage in our arteries which cholesterol sticks to creating plagque build-up. This can result in clogging of the arteries (heart disease and stroke).

  4. Can cause mineral loss in bones (osteoporosis); can interfere with the thyroid; cause acid reflux or numerous other problems.
