Artificial Sweeteners Linked to Many Health Issues

Artificial Sweeteners In Diet Fizzy Drinks May Be Making You Gain Weight

This ONE ingredient is making you fat – even though you think it's healthy

Meanwhile the longer observational studies showed a link between consumption of artificial sweeteners and relatively higher risks of weight gain and obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and other health issues. Observational studies can not prove a cause-and-effect relationship, however. "It should make people think and question whether they really need to be eating these artificial sweeteners".

The trail showed no reliable effects of artificial sweeteners on the loss of weight. The group represents the low- and reduced-calorie food and beverage industry.

Finally, your gut microbiome - a collection of hundreds of types of bacteria - is altered by artificial sweeteners.

Such strategies should address not only dietary preferences, but also physical activity and medical considerations, Rankin added.

Both types of studies have their pluses and limitations.

NPR reports: "There are a bunch of hypotheses for why artificial sweeteners may not promote weight loss or health". BMI is a measurement of body fat, based on height and weight.

The researchers found the randomized control trials suggest sugar substitutes don't help with weight management. "Everyone is told don't eat sugar, period". "And we found at least some evidence that they do the opposite". In the study, it was discovered that artificial sweeteners were being absorbed by the bacteria in the gut and changing the makeup of the essential bacterial cultures that live inside the digestive system.

Dr. Azad, however, says it's likely safer to steer clear of nonnutritive sweeteners in general.

Another possibility is that our bodies have evolved to metabolize sugars in a way that's triggered not by calories or the sugar molecule but by the perception of sweet taste. Further research is needed to fully characterize the long-term risks and benefits of artificial sweeteners.

Therefore, researchers warn everybody that artificial sweeteners are not what they seem, and they might lead to the apparition of certain health problems rather than their disappearance.

Lauri Wright is an assistant professor of nutrition and dietetics with the University of North Florida. Miller said when she tried to quit as an adult, she hated real sugar. This could be tampering with metabolism and predisposes you to weight gain. These days aspartame and sucralose aren't just in diet sodas and chewing gum but English muffins and toothpaste as well.

Another possibility, Azad said, is that we compensate and think that drinking a diet pop permits us to enjoy pizza and cake later. Since then artificial sweetener use has increased greatly in many other foods. "Those kind of factors confound what we are seeing in these observational studies", Wright said.
