Want to avoid diabetes & obesity? Quit artificial sweeteners!”

In nature, sweetness signals the presence of energy and its intensity reflects the amount of energy present.

The process decreases body's metabolism, resulting in storage of more fat inside the body, say researchers at Yale University in the US. But in modern-day life, the body's metabolism is fooled when a beverage is either too sweet or not sweet enough for the amount of calories it contains.

The response explains the association between artificial sweeteners and diabetes discovered in earlier studies.

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.

"They may be free of calories but not of consequences and diabetes is only one of them".

Dana Small, Professor at Yale University, "A calorie is not a calorie".

"The statement that a calorie is not a calorie is gobbledegook", said Tom Sanders, Professor emeritus of Nutrition and Dietetics, at King's College London. Metabolism of energy becomes less while the energy as well the sweetness are not matched and signals transferred to the brain gets inaccurate or weak. The assumption that more calories trigger greater metabolic and brain response is wrong.

But diet products that do not taste sweet confuse the brain into thinking there are fewer calories to burn than there are.

Small noted that it's not just soft drinks that contain mismatches, so do foods such as yogurt with low calorie sweeteners.

According to her, human bodies are evolved to use the available natural sources of energy efficiently, but, the modern food environment consists of energy sources that are not seen by the bodies before. The findings follow previous research showing expectant mothers who drink diet drinks are more likely to have overweight children, who are believed to develop a sweet tooth after being exposed to the artificial sweeteners in the womb.
