Dietitians, Bloggers Blast Dr. Oz’s Claims About Artificial Sweeteners

September 30, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
On a recent TV show, Dr. Oz cited studies showing that consuming artificial sweeteners actually increases the risk of weight gain and the risk of heart disease and diabetes. But a blogger refuted the claims, noting that numerous studies – and several  leading health advocates like the American Heart Association – say artificial sweeteners are not only safe, they do help people lose weight, thus reducing the risk of heart disease and diabetes. The blogger – Katie C. – writes for the Calorie Control Council, an “international association representing the low- and reduced-calorie food and beverage industry”.
