Dietary drinks may not be healthier, new research suggests. Artificial sweeteners, such as the controversial aspartame, are still linked to obesity and diabetes, according to a study. Previous research suggests that zero-calorie sugar substitutes damage people's blood vessels, increasing their risk of stroke and dementia. Speaking of the findings of the current study, the lead author, Dr. Brian Hoffmann, of Marquette University, Milwaukee, said: "It is not as simple as" to stop using artificial sweeteners "being the key to solving the overall results of health related to diabetes and obesity.As with other components of the diet, I like to say that moderation is the key if one finds it difficult to completely eliminate some of their diet.More than 29 million adults in the US and one in 17 in the UK, they have diabetes. "Speaking of the findings, Dr. Hoffmann said:" Both sugar and artificial sweeteners seem to show negative effects related to obesity and diabetes. "We note that in moderation, their body has chinery to handle the sugar, it is when the system is overloaded for a long period of time that this machinery breaks down. "We also note that replacing these sugars with sweetener Non-caloric artificial leads to negative changes in the metabolism of fat and energy. If you consume these products chronically substances (such as with sugar) the risk of negative health outcomes increases. The results suggest that the artificial sweetener acesulfame potassium accumulates in the blood, with high levels that damage the cells lining the vessels. The researchers fed different groups of rats with glucose or fructose, which are both types of sugar or artificial sweeteners aspartame or acesulfame potassium.After three weeks, the coatings of the blood vessels of rodents were analyzed.The findings will be presented at the meeting Annual of the American Physiological Society in San Diego. Drop your breakfast, "average" Lunch and small dinner are best for diabetes. This comes after an investigation published last month suggested a breakfast, a "normal" lunch and dinner may be the best combination for people with diabetes or obesity. Obese patients with diabetes on this diet lose 11 pounds (5 kg) for three months compared to a 3 lb (1.4 kg) weight gain for those who consume the traditionally recommended weight loss plan of six small meals a day, he found a study. Matching only three meals a day of different sizes also reduces glucose levels and diabetics' insulin requirements, as well as their cravings for appetite and carbohydrates, the research adds. Lead author Dr. Daniela Jakubowicz, from Tel Aviv University, said: "The time of day, when you eat and how often you eat, is more important than what you eat and how many calories you eat. A slice of bread consumed at breakfast leads to a lower glucose response and is less fattening than a slice of identical bread that is consumed at night. "
