Drinking diet drinks may make people more likely to gain weight than sticking to full-fat versions, according to scientists.
A study of more than 5,000 people in the US suggested people choosing Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi, for example, might be fooling themselves.
At first glance I though this article was going to a white wash on the dangers of diet sodas. The headline is definitely a white wash on it but the actually actually brings up some pretty good points on the health problems associated with drinking diet sodas.
'Artificial sweeteners also change the gut bacteria which may lead to weight gain and risk of type 2 diabetes.'
Professor Clifton and colleagues had actually set out to find whether sweeteners had an effect on people's risk of type 2 diabetes.
We know that having the wrong type of gut-bacteria can lead to a host of health problems in people. Aspartame is actually e-coli bacteria modified to poop out the sweet tasting stuff. Most living things don't like living in a poopy environment so It a brainiac to figure out these unnatural sweeteners are going to have side effects.
How Bad Gut Bacteria Can Cause Serious Diseases
The article also mentions another study that found some dangerous links to diet sodas and other health problems.
Adults who have at least one diet drink a day are three times more at risk from a stroke or dementia, research revealed in 2017.
Scientists said the sugar-free drinks should no longer be regarded as the healthier alternative and urge the public to stick to water or milk.
Their study of almost 4,400 adults also suggests diet drinks are more likely to cause strokes and dementia than those full of sugar.
There's a ton of damaging evidence on the dangers of diet drinks and I think it's time to ban the stuff. Politicians want to ban vaping because of it's dangers so why not this stuff as well especially since these artificial sweeteners are everywhere in our food now days that most folks are consuming some of it every day without even knowing it.
