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:

The NADA & IDHC webinars are back in action!

Please join us for the next National Aboriginal Diabetes Association and Indigenous Diabetes Health Circle webinar on Tuesday, April 9, 2019, at 12:00PM central.

This webinar will feature T’uy’t’tanat Cease Wyss, known as “The Indigenous Plant Diva”. T’uy’t’tanat is from the Squamish First Nation and is a media artist, cultural facilitator, and ethno-botanist, traditionally trained in this field by Elders. Her work involves site-specific and culturally focused teaching with storytelling as her means to sharing knowledge. T’uy’t’tanat was named the 2018 Indigenous storyteller in residence at the Vancouver Public Library, and is known for her ‘plant walks’ in Stanley Park. Cease Wyss and Anne Riley are embarking on a City of Vancouver public art collaboration to remediate various sites around the city that are affected by toxins in different ways, using plants, mulch and myco-remediation techniques and Indigenous methods of sustainable agriculture.

T’uy’t’tanat grew up learning about the plant foods and medicines of the Pacific Northwest Coast. Living in the city of Vancouver, T’uy’t’tanat is used to practising her culture in an urban environment; growing, harvesting and teaching about the Indigenous plants of this rainforest ecosystem, and offers a beautiful vision of how to learn from the land and the plant teachers all around us. T’uy’t’tanat will share her knowledge of plants – both food and medicinal plants of the Pacific Northwest coast. T’uy’t’tanat started Harmony Garden with the guidance and feedback of her Elders. It is a community garden and food forest, with the aim of sustaining the Skwxwu7mesh people in the community. Located on the Xwemelch'stn Uximixw, also known as the Capilano Reserve, T’uy’t’tanat urges community members to participate in the land based learning that happens there. "I do it all for the children. They are our future." To register for the webinar, please visit the following link:
