How many American’s think that by drinking diet soda’s we can prevent obesity and diabetes? I would say the number is pretty high given the amount of “diet sodas” that appear on our grocery shelves. The next time you’re doing your food shopping take a stroll down the soda aisle and count how many.
Besides the fact that we will go through a “drive through”, order a big hamburger plus fries and then of course go for a diet drink, there is so much that we are doing which now research has shown can be harmful to us. Artificial sweeteners can be very dangerous and do the absolute opposite of what we think they will do. Just yesterday a study came out which showed that one artificial sweetener in particular can actually make you gain weight. Isn’t this counter productive.
Watch and learn from FamilyAffaires.com Dr. Michael Corsilles as he explains how artificial sweeteners can actually cause diabetes and obesity. It’s so important for us to become educated on this topic and so many more.
