Long-term use of alternative sugar increases risk of obesity, diabetes

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

In addition, the cohort studies showed that there was an association between nonnutritive sweetener consumption and increases in weight and waist circumference, as well as a greater prevalence of obesity, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular events.

The Food and Drug Administration has ruled that artificial sweeteners are safe, and sucralose, which was accidentally discovered by United Kingdom scientists while they were developing new insecticides, remains the biggest sugar substitute on the market, according to retail tracking service Infoscan Reviews and Information Resources, Inc.

Artificial sweeteners like aspartame, sucralose and stevioside are growing increasingly popular as evidence mounts that sugar is fueling the obesity epidemic, Azad and colleagues write in CMAJ.

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.

In response to the April study, the Calorie Control Council said the research was not preliminary and doses were not "physiologically relevant", and noted that the study contradicts previous research that shows sucralose does not accumulate in the body. Publication bias was indicated for studies with diabetes as an outcome. There is no absolute conclusion that artificial sweeteners are harmful for everyone, and each individual study is limited by its own experimental design.

Diet soda sales have tumbled as consumers, turned off by studies on artificial sweeteners, have switched to bottled water, teas and energy drinks, instead.

In seven randomized controlled trials, the gold standard of scientific studies, people who consumed artificial sweeteners did not lose or gain more weight than controls. A systematic review, including meta-analyses, of the evidence from human and animal studies. She would like to see randomized controlled trials that focus on health markers besides body weight, including lipids, insulin levels, and inflammatory markers.

Health sciences Prof. Meghan Azad was one of them, reaching for the low-calorie choices until she started researching them in detail. But they did not find concrete proof of causation.

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

You've been watching your sugar intake lately, so you select a diet soft drink from the office pop machine for a cool, refreshing pick-me-up. Artificial sweeteners also might sharpen the person's sweet tooth, making them more likely to indulge in sugary foods. The results were published Monday in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. These trials also tend to focus on people who are obese and want to lose weight, which is not the case for many people who use low-calorie sweeteners in the general population.

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.
