Background: The influence of artificial sweeteners on metabolic diseases is controversial. [] Key Method Methods: We used data from 61,440 women in the prospective E3N-European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study, conducted between 1993 and 2011. We estimated hazards ratios (HRs) and 95% CIs of T2D risk associated with both the frequency and the duration of use of artificial sweeteners consumed in packets or tablets.

Consumption of Non-nutritive Sweeteners and Risk for Type 2 Diabetes: What Do We Know, and Not?

The article explores the relationship between non-nutritive sweetener consumption and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes through reviewing meta-analyses and systematic reviews, as well as

Artificial sweeteners and risk of cardiovascular diseases: results from the prospective NutriNet-Santé cohort

The findings from this large scale prospective cohort study suggest a potential direct association between higher artificial sweetener consumption (especially aspartame, acesulfame potassium, and sucralose) and increased cardiovascular disease risk.

Association between intake of non-sugar sweeteners and health outcomes: systematic review and meta-analyses of randomised and non-randomised controlled trials and observational studies

Most health outcomes did not seem to have differences between the NSS exposed and unexposed groups, and future studies should assess the effects of NSSs with an appropriate intervention duration.

Health outcomes of non-nutritive sweeteners: analysis of the research landscape

This scoping review identifies the needs for future research to address the numerous evidence gaps related to health effects of NNSs use and specifies the research questions and areas where a systematic review with meta-analyses is required for the proper evaluation of health outcomes associated to regular N NSs consumption.

Maternal intake of fructose or artificial sweetener during pregnancy and lactation has persistent effects on metabolic and reproductive health of dams post-weaning

Artificial sweeteners may not represent beneficial substitutes to fructose during pregnancy, with the potential to increase the risk of T2DM in later life in mothers.

Impact of Maternal Intake of Artificial Sweetener, Acesulfame-K, on Metabolic and Reproductive Health Outcomes in Male and Female Mouse Offspring

Exposure to Ace-k via the maternal diet leads to impaired glucose tolerance and impacts adipocyte size in a sex-specific manner as well as significantly affecting estrus cycles and related gene markers in female offspring.

Artificial sweeteners and their association with Diabetes: A review.

This review examines the relationship between artificial sweetener and diabetes and the need for continued investigation into the consumption of artificial sweeteners.

Aspartame—True or False? Narrative Review of Safety Analysis of General Use in Products

The studies involving the impact of aspartame on obesity, diabetes mellitus, children and fetus, autism, neurodegeneration, phenylketonuria, allergies and skin problems, its cancer properties and its genotoxicity were analyzed.



Consumption of artificially and sugar-sweetened beverages and incident type 2 diabetes in the Etude Epidemiologique aupres des femmes de la Mutuelle Generale de l'Education Nationale-European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition cohort.

Both SSB consumption and ASB consumption were associated with increased T2D risk, and randomized trials are required to prove a causal link between SSBs and ASBs.

Consumption of sweet beverages and type 2 diabetes incidence in European adults: results from EPIC-InterAct

This study corroborates the association between increased incidence of type 2 diabetes and high consumption of sugar-sweetened soft drinks in European adults and found that Juice and nectar consumption was not associated with type 1 diabetes incidence.

Association between sugar-sweetened and artificially sweetened soft drinks and type 2 diabetes: systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis of prospective studies.

Findings indicate a positive association between sugar-sweetened soft drink intake and type 2 diabetes risk, attenuated by adjustment for BMI, and the trend was less consistent for artificially sweetened soft drinks.

Sugar-sweetened and artificially sweetened beverage consumption and risk of type 2 diabetes in men.

Sugar-sweetened beverage consumption is associated with a significantly elevated risk of type 2 diabetes, whereas the association between artificially sweetened beverages and type 2abetes was largely explained by health status, pre-enrollment weight change, dieting, and body mass index.

Wine consumption throughout life is inversely associated with type 2 diabetes risk, but only in overweight individuals: results from a large female French cohort study

In this study, wine drinking was inversely associated with type 2 diabetes risk but only in overweight women, suggesting a potential beneficial, cumulative effect of moderate wine consumption throughout life for overweight women who would already be at higher risk of T2D.

Consumption of sugar sweetened beverages, artificially sweetened beverages, and fruit juice and incidence of type 2 diabetes: systematic review, meta-analysis, and estimation of population attributable fraction

Habitual consumption of sugar sweetened beverages was associated with a greater incidence of type 2 diabetes, independently of adiposity, and both artificially sweetened beverage and fruit juice were unlikely to be healthy alternatives to sugarsweetened beverages for the prevention of type 1 diabetes.

A trial of sugar-free or sugar-sweetened beverages and body weight in children.

Masked replacement of sugar-containing beverages with noncaloric beverages reduced weight gain and fat accumulation in normal-weight children.

Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders and Incidence of Type 2 Diabetes : Evidence from the E 3 NEPIC Cohort Study

The study showed for the first time an association between some FGID and T2D risk in a large prospective cohort and supports the hypothesis of a relationship between gastrointestinal functions and diabetes.
