And Now for some news ….

Soda and Cell Aging

A study, recently published in the American Journal of Public Health, tested whether leukocyte telomere length maintenance, which underlies healthy cellular aging, provides a link between sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) consumption and the risk of cardiometabolic disease.

The authors of the study examined cross-sectional associations between the consumption of SSBs, diet soda, and fruit juice and telomere length in a nationally representative sample of healthy adults.

The study population included 5309 US adults, aged 20 to 65 years, with no history of diabetes or cardiovascular disease, from the 1999 to 2002 National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys. Leukocyte telomere length was assayed from DNA specimens.

Diet was assessed using 24-hour dietary recalls. Associations were examined using multivariate linear regression for the outcome of log-transformed telomere length.

Results of the study found that adjustment for sociodemographic and health-related characteristics, sugar-sweetened soda consumption was associated with shorter telomeres. Consumption of 100% fruit juice was marginally associated with longer telomeres. No significant associations were observed between consumption of diet sodas or noncarbonated SSBs and telomere length.

As always, discuss all Nutritional Advice with your Qualified Health Care Provider.

Artificial Sweeteners and Glucose Intolerance

In mice, artificial sweeteners lead to alterations in the microbiome and changes in glucose absorption.

Noncaloric artificial sweeteners, such as saccharine, sucralose, and aspartame, were introduced to control body weight and lower risk for diseases linked to obesity.

Yet the epidemic of type 2 diabetes and obesity has coincided with introduction of noncaloric sweeteners. Most of us assume that the epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes led to more use of noncaloric sweeteners.

However, researchers in Israel report that the opposite might be true: Use of noncaloric sweeteners might have contributed to the epidemic.

Mice that are given noncaloric sweeteners develop glucose intolerance quickly, compared with mice that are given sucrose or glucose. Introduction of dietary noncaloric sweeteners promptly alters the mouse microbiome to favor biochemical pathways that enhance absorption of calorie-rich glucose and short-chain fatty acids.

As always, discuss all Nutritional Advice with your Qualified Health Care Provider.
