Artificial Sweeteners have been a controversial topic for almost as long as they have been around. Some scientist feels that artificial sweeteners play a key role in the obesity and increase the risk of diabetes. A new study done by researchers at Yale University says that diet drinks and meals could cause people to gain weight and trigger in diabetes even if they are low in calorie.
The sweet taste of the sweeteners can fool the metabolism of the body and believes that we are consuming more calories. This can cause slowing down of metabolism where there is a mismatch of sweetness and calories.
In response to the study, Tam Fry, of the National Obesity Forum stated that this study is acceptable for people to convince that artificial sweetener whether in drinks or food can have an adverse effect on human body. These sweeteners are less in calorie, but the consequences are more which includes diabetes.
Dana Small, Professor at Yale University, “A calorie is not a calorie. The belief that more calories trigger greater metabolic and brain gets inaccurate. Calories are only half of the equation; sweet taste perception is the other half.”
According to Dana Small, Human bodies are emerged to use the natural sources of energy, but the modern foods in today’s world consist of energy sources which are not seen by the body. British experts, who are unconvinced about the study, are of the opinion that people who are concerned about taking diet drinks should stick to drinking water.
