    Hi everyone

    I am researching what people I the UK think about artificial sweeteners for my Health Psychology MSc dissertation. The survey takes about 6 minuets and I am willing to do other peoples surveys in return.

    Thanks for telling me, there must have been a typo in the link

    https://bristol.az1.qualtrics.com/jf...u5Q193&Info=SR

    That one should work.

    I've filled this in. I may be biased because I feel very strongly against artificial sweeteners, I think they are the devil! I am also alergic to some E numbers.

    I am really interested in this topic. Do you have links to any of the papers you referenced in the later questions about sweeteners causing brain damage, being bad for children, causing obesity etc? I have a health and fitness blog and it would be useful for me to have that evidence.

    I will try and write a reply that does not spoil data from anyone else that decides to do my survey.
    This is a link for free access to a systematic review and meta-analysis that talks about sweeteners and if they increase energy intake and weight. This looks at all of the research for and against the argument. http://www.nature.com/ijo/journal/v4...jo2015177a.pdf

    You will probably be interested in the gut microbiota paper that came out in nature last year too but I haven't got a copy of it right now because I am on a uni computer. There is a paper called - Artificial sweeteners are not the answer to childhood obesity but again that is at home. Do you have access to journals at the moment?

    NHS choices has information about artificial sweeteners and cancer http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Goodfood/...weeteners.aspx

    I hope this helps. Although I expect this is not what you are looking for.

    I've done it, sadly as a smoker i could care less about artificial sweeteners.. If they are hurting me, they doing a tiny fraction of the damage smoking is , from what i can tell. I also never really cared about E-numbers and sweeteners ( i did watch many Doc's on them on TV and read about them on newspapers, but food is food, and i like to think a pretty healthy diet, so the artificial sweeteners dont really affect me that much. and I like to think I'm more healthy than most people, im stil pretty sure im more healthy than most people my age even with the smoking.

    I can see a problem with E-numbers and such, but i personally don't care, food is food.

    Thanks for doing it. I had not considered that smokers might care less about sweeteners but that could be an interesting point.

    It is useful if people do not care about them as this will be helpful for companies that are trying to reduce sugar content in their foods. The media does a lot of scare mongering about food. E-numbers are just codes used to label additives which have been approved for use in food in Europe so there is nothing inherently bad in them (although some people with certain conditions do have negative reactions).

    Hey I noticed that the way your Qualtrics is at present means people can do your survey multiple times which can ruin your data. If you go into survey options you can select "prevent ballot box stuffing" which places a cookie in their web browser and prevents access.
