Well, nothing could be further from the truth.

Recent research finds that artificial sweeteners put you in on the fast track to serious blood sugar problems… and even diabetes.

Here’s what you need to know…

For decades, we’ve been told sugar is the ultimate villain when it comes to your health – it causes diabetes and weight gain.

But now we know that chemical sweeteners are just as bad… if not worse!

Recent research conducted at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel demonstrated exactly how dangerous these sweeteners are for your blood sugar

The researchers found that it took just 11 weeks for mice fed with artificial sweeteners to develop glucose intolerance.

After just one week of using the chemical sweeteners, four of those participants became glucose intolerant.
