“My patients respond to the Anticancer Lifestyle Program in a way I find unprecedented in 30 years of Radiation Oncology practice. It helps them feel that we are caring for them, and not just delivering cancer treatment.”

I am so glad I found the AntiCancer Lifestyle Program. This is an amazing idea and gift. Our son-in-law at 39 has glioblastoma. After surgery, chemo, and radiation we hope, no relapse. Hope, however, is not a plan. My wife and I are changing to help him change.”

Artificial sweeteners can cause weight gain, diabetes, and other metabolic disorders

Many studies have found that artificial sweeteners, such as aspartame, can cause weight gain and other metabolic syndromes.

In this article, published in Harvard Health, Dr. David Ludwig, an obesity and weight-loss specialist at Harvard-affiliated Boston Children’s Hospital, why use of artificial sweeteners paradoxically leads to weight gain, not weight loss.

A study by SE Swithers, published in the journal Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism, found that accumulating evidence suggests that frequent consumers of these sugar substitutes may also be at increased risk of excessive weight gain, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

A similar result was found in a study by Chia et al, published in the journal PLoS One.

A study by Fagherazzi et al, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages and artificially-sweetened beverages were both associated with increased risk of Type 2 diabetes.
