    Default How Artificial Sweeteners Affect Gut Bacteria

    You may be getting more than you bargained for when you reach for a diet soda. Research suggests that sucralose and other artificial sweeteners alter your gut bacteria and cause insulin resistance.
    On April Fool’s Day, 1998, the Food and Drug Administration approved the artificial sweetener sucralose, aka 1,6-dichloro- 1,6-dideoxy-beta-D-fructofuranosyl-4- chloro-4-deoxy-alpha-D-galactopyranoside. But, despite its scary name, the worst it seemed to do was just be a rare migraine trigger in susceptible individuals, to which the manufacturer of sucralose replied that you have to weigh whatever risk there may be against its broader health benefits, “helping to mitigate the health risks associated with the national epidemic of obesity.”

    yikes, too much alphabet

    Amazing that LV hasn't trickled onto here yet so let me be the first. I took my son there for his college graduation present years ago and we stayed at Excalibur (across the street from horror) for a week, during witch our maid raided and ransacked my wallet to the tune of $400 missing one night.

    Wonder what impact this event will have on that place, no innocence lost.

    As to obesity, I think that's also an American phenomenon as in too much choice too much to eat. I fast at least once a week and feel much better thereafter, try it you'll love your food that much better afterwards, and your scale too. I diet to GAIN weight, not lose and love my food fruit veggies and munchies galore just not corporate packaged crap.
