Artificial Sweeteners Are Bad

Artificial Sweeteners Are BadA recent study has linked artificial sweeteners to diabetes and obesity… they conditions these sweeteners are supposed to eliminate. The Perry household has had its own experience with artificial sweeteners… none of it good. Not even the taste.

Not only do artificial sweeteners fail to keep us slim, they actually contribute to diabetes and obesity. It’s simple… artificial sweeteners are bad.

A new study presented Sunday at the 2018 Experimental Biology meeting examined the biochemical effects of artificial sweeteners in rats and cell cultures. Researchers fed one group of rats a diet high in glucose or fructose, different types of sugars, and another group a diet with aspartame or acesulfame potassium, common zero-calorie artificial sweeteners. After three weeks, researchers observed “significant differences in the concentrations of biochemicals, fats and amino acids in blood samples,” according to a press release.

The study also examined how artificial sweeteners affected vascular health by looking at how they impacted the lining of the blood vessels.”

As diabetes and obesity become a rising worldwide health concern there has been an increased awareness of environmental factors, such as diet, that are contributing to the problem,” the study says. “However, it was not until recently that the negative impact of consuming non-caloric artificial sweeteners in the place of sugar had been increasingly recognized as a potential contributor to the dramatic increase in diabetes and obesity, along with the associated complications.”The results of the study suggest artificial sweeteners alter how bodies process fat and obtain energy. Additionally, researchers discovered acesulfame potassium appeared to accumulate in the blood, with increased amounts having more harmful effects on cells that line blood vessels
