World Health Medicine - Many false perception created in the community about the 'virtues' of artificial sugar commonly used by the crowded soft drink market. As one of them not a few people think that by replacing regular sodas with drinking diet soda (low calorie) could be healthier because of low sugar content.

Different from ordinary soda drinks with low calorie soda contained in pemanisnya. Most diet soft drinks (low calorie) Low calorie sugar, one of which is aspartame. Many securities are not good to health caused by aspartame. Other studies have also shown that low-calorie sugar found in soda has no effect on weight loss, but it can promote weight loss.

In this study, researchers study the processes that occur in the small intestine, where absorption of glucose or sugar from food into the vein.

Beechey identified that the cells that detect glucose will then release the hormones necessary to assist the transport of sugar through the intestinal lining and into the blood. This sugar will then be converted into fat. These cells, light Beechey, will also release hormones when meeting with artificial sweeteners. "Artificial sweeteners can also enable and enhance the capacity of the glucose sensor intestine to absorb more sugar."
