  • Double Shot of a Diet Drink could Increase Diabetes Risk Twice Over

A double shot of a diet drink could increase risk of diabetes twice over.

Apparently, two soft drinks taken at various times a day could increase the chances of contracting diabetes. This is so even if the soft drinks contain no sugar.

So-called diet versions are just as bad since the body does not differentiate between sucrose which is table sugar and saccharine which is artificial sugar. The study concerning this took place in Sweden. Over 2800 adults were included in the research effort.

Those individuals who drank two 200 ml servings of soft drinks each and every day were 2.4 times as likely to contract type 2 diabetes as those who did no such thing, according to Telegraph.

The majority of the soft drinks were sold in 330 ml cans which meant that even by drinking a can and a half of a serving, people were well on their way to contracting the “sweet sickness” that was diabetes.

As for those unfortunate souls who guzzled down a liter each day, they ended up being 10 times as prone to contracting diabetes as the rest of the soft drink teetotalers.

The really weird news was that this effect was extant whether one drank a standard soft drink or a diet version.

Despite the sugar being an artificial one in the diet version of the soft drink, the human body seems to be much more intelligent than we could fathom in our chemical acrobatics which we engage in inside the lab to make artificial food and drink.

Insulin resistance is the end result of drinking these crappy drinks that don’t have any nutrients in them. Even artificial sweeteners tend to make one crave sugars and one also tends to develop a sweet tooth as a result. Food intake also skyrockets.

Even the microbes in the gut undergo a radical change that makes the human body prone to obesity and inflammation. Glucose intolerance is what is left behind in he end.

Everything from the metabolism to the immune system are affected by these artificial drinks which act in the body like the worst form of poison. Mostly those who switched to low sugar drinks used to drink high sugar drinks in the past.

Thus they were already prone to contracting diabetes. The low sugar drinks proved to be the last feather that broke the camel’s back (metaphorically speaking). More research is needed before any conclusions can be reached regarding this matter.
