Be careful, “light” yogurts are bad for your health!

0% yogurts that contain sweeteners could, in the long term, increase cardiovascular risk, according to a new French study.

Do you usually eat yogurts labeled “light” or “0% fat”? Please note: according to a new study, low-fat products (including yogurts, therefore) increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Conducted among 103,388 volunteers, the (French!) NutriNet-Santé study studied the impact on health of food additives and especially that of sweeteners, these famous “false sugars” present in low-fat desserts. The French researchers followed the participants between 2009 and 2021.

Results ? Researchers have succeeded in establishing a link between the regular consumption of sweeteners and the risk of suffering a myocardial infarction (heart attack), a cerebrovascular accident (CVA) or arterial hypertension (HTA).

Sweeteners are not a “healthy” alternative to sugar!

“[Les volontaires] who initially consumed more sweeteners had, over time, a greater risk of developing cardiovascular disease” summarize the scientists who published their work in the British Medical Journal.

How do I know if my favorite foods contain sweeteners? The good reflex to adopt: take a look at the label. Sweeteners hide behind the “codes” that start with an E: sorbitol (E 420), mannitol (E 421), xylitol (E 967), aspartame (E 951), saccharin (E 954), cyclamates (E 952) …

These findings, consistent with the latest WHO report published this year, do not support the use of sweeteners as safe alternatives to sugar.“conclude the researchers.
