Artificial Sweeteners Cause Obesity and Diabetes, Shows New Study

A new study found artificial sweeteners like the sugar they replace may be linked to higher rates of obesity and diabetes Artificial Sweeteners Cause Obesity and Diabetes, Shows New Study

But a new set of research indicates that the artificial sweeteners bring with them some similar risks of the those very health conditions - but in a different metabolic pathway.

That's not ideal, and Hoffman said the tested "artificial sweeteners seem to exhibit negative effects linked to obesity and diabetes".

Doctor Hyman says consumers need to be wary of artificially sweetened drinks labeled as "low" or "zero" calories that claim to be healthy -because they're not.

Other studies on the impact of artificial sweeteners have looked to examine their impact over time in humans, or on the direct changes to cells in a laboratory.

A team from the Medical College of Wisconsin and Marquette University in the U.S. presented its findings at the American Physiological Society annual meeting yesterday (22 April) based on the largest examination to date of biochemical changes in the body as a result of taking artificial sweeteners.

"Despite the addition of these non-caloric artificial sweeteners to our everyday diets, there has still been a drastic rise in obesity and diabetes", said lead researcher Brian Hoffmann, PhD, assistant professor in the department of biomedical engineering at the Medical College of Wisconsin and Marquette University. "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". For nearly a month, various groups were supplied high doses of glucose, 2 sugars, and fructose, and acesulfame potassium and aspartame (the 2 common artificial sweeteners).

Three weeks later, researchers found significant differences in the concentration of biochemicals, fats and amino acids in blood samples compared with sugar.

The results suggest artificial sweeteners change how the body processes fat and gets its energy.

What's more is that acesulfame potassium appeared to accumulate in some of the rats' blood systems, along with elevated levels of lipids and other fats.

Researchers alternately treated rats with concentrated dosing of sugar (glucose) and substitutes - aspartame and acesulfame potassium, two chemical compounds popularly found in the branded sweeteners Equal and Sweet One, respectively. Researchers cautioned that the results do not provide a clear answer and the question warrants further study.

"The negative implications of consuming high amounts of dietary sugar on overall health have always been linked to diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and other systemic health problems", the authors wrote in a statement.
