Saccharin, first synthesized in 1879, eventually became popular as an inexpensive substitute for sugar, particularly as a non-caloric sweetner. The dispute concerning the safety of saccharin for human consumption is almost as old as saccharin itself. In this article, the

Recent studies on saccharin in animals and man have allowed a detailed understanding of its fate in the body. Saccharin is slowly absorbed from the gut but rapidly eliminated in the urine, largely by renal tubular secretion. Saccharin does not

A positive relationship between the consumption of sweetened dietary substances (e.g. saccharin and sucrose) and drug abuse has been reported in both the human and other animal literature. The proposed genetic contribution to this relationship has been based on evidence

Sodium saccharin (NaSac) produces bladder tumors consistently in male rats only after lifetime exposure that begins at birth. NaSac is not metabolized and is negative in most genotoxicity tests. NaSac-induced cell damage and proliferation have been proposed as important factors
M D Reuber

Saccharin is carcinogenic for the urinary bladder in rats and mice, and most likely is carcinogenic in human beings. The neoplasms of the urinary bladder are malignant and invade and metastasize. Male rats are more susceptible to urinary bladder carcinogenesis
