Artificial sweeteners can cause diabetes, says shocking new study

Real sugar adds calories quickly, while artificial sugar can cause diabetes.

Some artificial sweeteners may alter the body's microbes in ways that alter blood sugar levels, according to new data published in the journal Cell and reported by the South West News Service. Scientists are now warning that there will be

Sugar substitutes, including saccharin and aspartame, are found in thousands of diet products such as sodas, desserts, prepared foods and cakes, as well as chewing gum and toothpaste. 11}

Manufacturers have long denied that alternatives can harm the human body, and experts say that blood sugar levels are not affected by them. We have previously pointed out.

However, new data suggest that caution may be warranted.

"We were able to identify very distinct changes in the composition and function of gut microbes and the molecules they secrete into the peripheral blood in subjects who received nonnutritive sweeteners," said the Cancer Center. he told SWNS.

"This seems to suggest that the human gut microbes are fairly responsive to each of these sweeteners," he added. A study of sweetener consumers as a group found that two non-nutritive sweeteners, saccharin and sucralose, had a significant impact on glucose tolerance in healthy adults.

People's glycemic response," Elinahu explained.

Professor's team observed this same phenomenon in mice in 2014. Curious about what happens to humans, her Elinav and his colleagues screened more than 1,300 people and found 120 of them strictly avoiding artificial sweeteners in their daily lives.

The population was divided into 6 groups: 2 control groups and 2 control groups that were significantly below the US Food and Drug Administration's recommended daily allowance of either aspartame, saccharin, stevia, or sucralose. Four groups.

were injected into germ-free mice housed in . Sterility without its own intestinal bacteria.

Experimental results conclusively show that microbiome changes in response to human consumption of nonnutritive sweeteners "can induce glycemic changes in consumers in a highly individualized manner." The professor concluded that it suggests that Sweetener effects may vary from individual to individual due to the unique composition of the microbiome.

Previous research has found that artificial sweeteners can adversely affect metabolism and appetite control.
