According to a new study, research is increasingly showing what many advocates of physical health and critics of artificial sweeteners have been saying for years. Substitutions sugar such as sucralose, aspartame, saccharin and actually are causing diabetes as opposed to prevention.
While the medical industry continues to promote artificial sweeteners as a healthy alternative to sugar, and while large food companies insert these alternatives in food unnecessarily products, research by Professor Jennifer Kuk, University of York in Toronto, suggests that artificial sweeteners may actually be responsible for the increased levels of type 2 diabetes and people who eat them may have worse glucose control.
Artificial sweeteners are used to replace sugar and story behind them is centered around the fact that they are supposedly not digested by humans, but recent study has shown that demand and treaded not digestibility can not really be true.
Indeed, research is showing that gut bacteria may be able to break down artificial sweeteners, but as a result, gut bacteria is altered and therefore a trigger factor for diabetes. As Professor Kuk says, “Our study shows obese individuals who consume artificial sweeteners, especially aspartame, they may have a worse glucose control than those who do not take sugar substitutes.”
The Kuk study published in Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism involving over 3,000 adults.
The results of this study demonstrate that consumption of aspartame is associated with impairments related to obesity increased glucose tolerance, impaired fasting glucose. Therefore, more research to better understand the benefits of weight control consumption of artificial sweeteners on natural sugars against the potential increased risk of diabetes, especially those with obesity is needed.
Kuk also indicated that individuals who consume artificial sweeteners – in this case, aspartame or saccharin – also had a slightly higher rate of body mass and were more likely to be women. According to the Daily Mail, previous research in mice has shown changes in intestinal bacteria that produce glucose intolerance related to consumption of saccharin.
