    Default Artificial Sweetners: Powerful Link To Diabetes

    It seems self evident that consumption of sugar sweetened beverages would be associated with increased risk for type 2 diabetes (T2D). And in fact, this has been demonstrated in multiple studies. This is understandable when you consider what a powerful slug of fructose is delivered by each can or bottle of this stuff.
    So it is that the term, “sugar free” is being exploited to death by soft drink manufacturers because of the mistaken public perception that choosing artificially sweetened drinks would be a healthier choice. It is a mistaken perception as now we’re seeing studies that have demonstrated that the risk for T2D is also dramatically increased in individuals who choose not to drink sugar sweetened beverages, but opt for those that contain artificial sweeteners.

    It wouldn't hurt to add that artificial sweeteners (e.g. aspartame or "Nutrasweet") are also neurotoxins that can have multiple adverse effects on the brain and nervous system, even mimicking the symptoms of MS.
