Are Fake Sugars Contributing to the Obesity Epidemic? Non-nutritive Sweeteners & Cardiometabolic Health

More and more people are using artificial sweeteners like Sweet and Low, Equal, and Splenda brands instead of sugar, thinking they are making a healthier choice. But, are these really healthier? Meghan Azad, PhD, will share her research on this issue during the NADA webinar on December 12, 2017.

Dr. Azad is a Canadian Research Chair in Developmental Origins of Chronic Disease, Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba, and Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, University of Manitoba.  In her webinar presentation, she will talk about how artificial sweeteners are increasingly being used by individuals and by different food and drink companies.

Dr. Azad will explain how artificial sweeteners affect the body, particularly cardiometabolic health. Cardiometabolic health concerns both heart disease and metabolic disorders such as diabetes. She will share how her research looked at the impacts of artificial sweeteners on the health of children and adults, including during pregnancy, and what the findings were.

The webinar will be broadcast in coordination with Indigenous Diabetes Health Circle (IDHC, formerly SOADI) and the FNHSSM PEKE.  The webinar will air live Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at 11 a.m. central time.  To register, enter as guest at the following link:
