    Default Diet Soda May Actually Help Cause Type 2 Diabetes



    If you’re choosing diet soda or other diet products in an effort to watch your weight or to prevent blood sugar fluctuations, you may want to rethink that decision. That’s because new research shows that aspartame — a key ingredient in diet soda and many other diet foods and beverages — has been linked to impaired blood sugar. While that may not sound like a big deal, it is a serious situation that has the potential to contribute to diseases like diabetes, obesity and more.
    The new study published in the medical journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism found that the artificial sweetener aspartame hinders a person’s ability to regulate blood sugar, which is ironic considering that most people who use artificial sweeteners do so to prevent the blood sugar spikes linked to real sugar.
