Artificial Sweeteners can Lead to Heart Diseases, Weight Gain and Other Health Issues- Researchers Determine Long-term Effects

Artificial Sweeteners can lead to Heart Diseases

Artificial sweeteners can result in enduring weight gain and increased peril of obesity, heart diseases, blood pressure, and diabetes, as per the new study conducted by researchers. The study has been published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) on Monday, July 17, 2017. Use of artificial sweeteners like sucralose and aspartame is increasing widely all over the globe. The data that has emerged from the study indicates that nonnutritive or artificial sweeteners can have extreme negative effects on the individual’s appetite, good bacteria, and metabolism. However, the evidence conflicts the data.

To ensure and confirm that the data is appropriate and to better acknowledge whether the consumption of nonnutritive sweeteners is directly related to negative and durable side effects on heart and weight, some researchers from the University of Manitoba’s George & Fay Yee Centre for Healthcare Innovation decided to conduct a methodical review. In the review, thirty seven studies followed approximately four lakh people for roughly ten years. Merely seven of these studies appeared to be randomized controlled experiments that involved more than thousand people followed for six months.

The result of longer observational studies displayed direct link between use of artificial sweeteners and comparatively higher threat of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, weight gain, and several other health issues. Lead author of the study and Assistant Professor of Health Sciences, Dr. Meghan Azad mentioned that “caution is suggested until enduring health effects of all artificial sweeteners are completely characterized.” She added that “given the increasing and prevalent use of artificial sweeteners and the ongoing epidemic of diseases related to obesity and heart issues, thorough research is required to define the enduring benefits and risks of such products.” Her team is currently working on a new study to comprehend how the usage of artificial sweeteners by pregnant women can influence gut bacteria, metabolism, and weight gain in their infants.
