A small study (published as an abstract) of healthy individuals received the equivalent non-caloric sweetener contained in 1.5 liters of “diet” soda for 14 days along with a with a control group receiving a placebo. The results suggest that glucose absorption is negatively affected in healthy people by artificial sweeteners. This early research may help explain why a population shift in the consumption of artificial sweeteners has not lowered type 2 diabetes risk.
LifeTip: Limit both sugar-sweetened beverages and the “diet” drinks—choose water instead! Watch “Reverse Diabetes Naturally” with Dr. David DeRose for more recommendations.
