Is it safe to consume Acesulfame Potassium sweetener while pregnant?

I have been researching artificial sweeteners for a few years. Acesulfame potassium certainly has the least amount of studies indicating adverse side effects compared to other artificial sweeteners. I have found a study showing increased instance of mutations in DNA (only occurred in male mice http://ntp-server.niehs.nih.gov/htdocs/GMM-studies/GMM02.html). I haven�t found any studies showing increased formation of cancerous cells. Acesulfame K has an excellent shelf life (5 years) and does not break down when cooked or baked. It is very low in arsenic (3 ppm max). Sucralose on the other hand is produced at 98% purity, that other 2% is comprised of arsenic, lead, and methanol. Methanol is 10% of the aspartame molecule. Methanol metabolizes to formaldehyde and formic acid. My recommendation is to stay away from aspartame and sucralose, pregnant or not. As for asulfame potassium, I�ve been using it for about a year with no side effects experienced, but would avoid consumption if pregnant just to be safe. There haven�t been a significant number of long term studies on humans. For this reason, despite my use of it, i would not recommend it to others. A very conclusive 2 year study can be found here http://www.inchem.org/documents/jecfa/jecmono/v28je13.htm. out of all artificial sweeteners this appears (key word: appears) to be the safest. I feel the best solution is to train yourself to avoid satisfying cravings for sweets and like any addiction they�ll go away in time. overall we in the U.S. need more self discipline to begin with. I only accept use of sweeteners in products that otherwise taste very bad (protein powder), but I won�t even taste a drink that�s not 100% juice or pure water. things like tea taste bad to me now when i add sugar. Look at the above very closely. Now, if you are pregnant, do you drink alcohol or smoke. If you do, go ahead and ingest those fake sugars like aspartame and acesulfame potassium. Otherwise, if you intend to stay healthy and live a long life leave all of the synthetic stuff alone. Use raw tupelo honey instead. Has a low glycemic index and helps the digestive and immune system. Besides, it does not leave an odd taste in your mouth. Stick with the real sweeteners and leave all those chemicals out of your diet. You will be healthier and feel much better. You may even stop having those horrible head aches if you leave that diet soda out of your diet completely.

What specific antibiotic can cause miscarriage?

Antibiotics can be taken when pregnant since some conditions are worse than the possible effects of the antibiotics. There is no real research that says that antibiotics can can cause miscarriage or fetal damage, they just want to be careful since there is not enough research. It doesn't matter what type or brand.

If you smoked weed and did not know you were two months pregnant could it hurt the baby?

There is no effect on pregnancy. A study done in Jamaica of pregnant women showed no significant effects on the babies. It should be noted that the average use in Jamaica has been estimated as 28 times the average use in the US.

Prenatal Marijuana Exposure and Neonatal Outcomes in Jamaica:

An Ethnographic Study

http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/hemp/medical/can-babies.htm The largest study of the health effects of marijuana to date was done by Kaiser Permanente. They studied the health records of 65,000 patients over a number of years. They found no significant differences between the health histories of those who smoked pot versus those who did not smoke marijuana.

Marijuana and Mortality

http://www.druglibrary.org/crl/aging/sidney-01.html This is consistent with the results of every major government commission report on marijuana in the last 100 years. They all concluded that marijuana is not a significant threat to health in any respect. Major Studies of Drugs and Drug Policy - http://druglibrary.org/schaffer/Library/studies/studies.htm

Is it safe to paint while you are pregnant?

No not usually because of the fumes. If you must try a ventilation mask with a filter and open all the windows and doors. Try to have someone else do it and you leave for the day. You can even discuss with your doctor. The myth that painting is unsafe actually started years ago when there was still lead in the paint used. However, today they have changed the product, and you should no longer be able to buy paint that contains lead. It is not a problem. The only risk you will find that comes with painting is lightheadedness which can occur from reaching above your head. I helped paint my baby room, and I just made sure it was well ventilated and I sat down and took a break every so often. But don't paint alone!!! If, for some reason,you do get a dizzy spell, you will absolutely want someone near by to make sure you don't fall and hurt yourself. It is not only lead based paints that are unsafe. Paints with high VOCs (such as oil-based enamels and epoxy) are not safe for anyone to breathe over an extended period. If you are pregnant and want to do some painting, be sure to ask for a paint with low VOC, or at least be sure to use a water based (latex) paint and have proper ventilation. Even for several days after paint has been applied it can "offgas" fumes into the air. Continue to supply fresh air to an area that is freshly painted for as long as is practical after painting. While solvent-based paints pose more of a threat, water-based paints contain anti-microbials to inhibit microbiological growth while packaged. There are known health effects resulting from occupational exposure to anti-microbials. This would be an extremely low-level exposure, but low-level exposure science is just emerging and much is still unknown. Minimizing exposure to potentially hazardous substances while pregnant (and any other time) is prudent.

Can you paint your nursery while pregnant?

I wouldn't paint anything while pregnate no matter what stage of pregnancy you are in....It is not good on the health of the baby, or at least I have allways heard to never paint,or be around sprays or anything while pregnate...its hazordous for the baby....

AnswerThere are certain paints that you can use! Your local paint stores should be aware of which ones you can and can't use. I do know that there are very few that are safe but they are out there!!! Home Depot sells "Behr" paint. You can use that! AnswerYou will want to ask for a paint that has low VOCs. These are the toxic chemicals contained in paints and other household products that can "offgas" into the air- they are essentially toxic fumes. Be sure to use a water based (latex) paint with low VOCs, and supply as much fresh air as possible to the area being painted. Consult your physician before painting during pregnancy. It only takes a phone call!

Is a saltwater pool bad for pregnant women?

I can't imagine it being any worse than a regular pool with chlorine in it. I find the saltwater pool has a very faint chlorine smell unlike a regular chlorine pool. The salt is supposed to be less than a tear (from your eyes) so it's not like you are swimming into extremely salty water. Besides salt is good for you skin especially if you have cuts or insect bites etc.

Also, saltwater is good for dogs with flea problems!

Can smoking weed and drinking increase your chances in not getting pregnant?

I don't this increase your chances. I smoked weed and drank for the fives years before I had my first son. You just have to quit like two months before you try to make a baby because its better for them to be created in a healthy body.

Is it safe to get your tongue pierced while you are pregnant?

IT IS NOT SAFE TO GET PIERCED WHILE PREGNANT!

If you go to a tattoo/piercing shop, one of the questions they ask before they'll touch you with a needle is "are you pregnant?"

When you get pierced, it's a puncture wound, which is something your body repair. Chances are is that it will end up being alright, but why take chances? Just wait the nine months and do it when there are no risks whatsoever.


From my opinion no. first of all, why would you even think of doing such a discuisting, stupid, and maybe even se*ual thing? Secondly, from what I've seen it is so gross and it makes your words unclear as if you were chewing tobacco. And last, if your pregnant, it will probably give you more pain than needed. That is, it's painful enough having a baby. And getting your toung pierced will probably hurt a lot more than having a baby. Take it from someone who cares about everyone in the world. P.S.- If you do get your toung pierced and still have it pierced as your child gets older, he/she will have bad influences on piercing thei body.

Is it harmful for a pregnant woman to be around marijuana smoke?

There is no effect on pregnancy. A study done in Jamaica of pregnant women showed no significant effects on the babies. It should be noted that the average use in Jamaica has been estimated as 28 times the average use in the US.

There have been tens of millions of people who have smoked marijuana in the US over the last several decades, including what must certainly be millions of pregnant women. In addition, marijuana is used routinely as a food and medicine in other countries, by both children and pregnant women. There is simply no evidence of any associated epidemic of problems with babies. so do drugs. We have more than enough evidence to establish that alcohol and tobacco are quite harmful to infants, while no such evidence exists for marijuana.

The largest study of the health effects to date was done by Kaiser Permanente. They surveyed the health records of 65,000 patients over a number of years. They found no significant differences between the health records of people who smoked pot and those who didn't.

Does any drug that you use affect the results of a pregnancy test?

The major one that would affect a pregnancy test is HCG, which is used during infertility treatments, it's the same hormone your body produces during pregnancy and it's the hormone the home test is looking for. other than that medications do not affect the outcome of a home pregnancy test. ~pawsalmighty
