Study: Maniacal Artificial Sweetener Xylitol Could Double Risk of Heart Attacks, Strokes, Death

Every few years, there is some new magical “sweetener” that is supposed to give you the joys of sugar without the consequences (the primary consequence being obesity). Every single time, a few years after the sweetener is introduced, it is revealed that it is a toxic chemical that causes all kinds of problems.

Further: judging by the people I see drinking Diet Soda, it doesn’t appear to help much with obesity either.

There is a life lesson here: nothing is free. If you want to indulge in the joys of sugar, you are going to have to deal with the consequences. For normal, healthy people, they can have a sugary dessert now and again, and not end up obese. But if you want to replace water with soda, and just drink that crap all day, you’re going to end up with a problem.


A low-calorie sweetener called xylitol used in many reduced-sugar foods and consumer products such as gum and toothpaste may be linked to nearly twice the risk of heart attacks, stroke and death in people who consume the highest levels of the sweetener, a new study found.

We gave healthy volunteers a typical drink with xylitol to see how high the levels would get and they went up 1,000-fold,” said senior study author Dr. Stanley Hazen, director of the Center for Cardiovascular Diagnostics and Prevention at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute.

When you eat sugar, your glucose level may go up 10% or 20% but it doesn’t go up a 1,000-fold,” said Hazen, who also directs the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Microbiome and Human Health.

“Humankind has not experienced levels of xylitol this high except within the last couple of decades when we began ingesting completely contrived and sugar-substituted processed foods,” he added.

This is the problem.

People should be eating real foods. There is no way around that reality. There is no trick. You have to either eat whole foods, or deal with the consequences. Nothing is free. Maybe it is worth it to you to be a fat slob in order to indulge in chemical crap, but even if that is the case: just drink normal sugar.

Do not mess with these “deal with the devil” chemicals.

In 2023, the same researchers found similar results for another low-calorie sweetener called erythritol, which is used as a bulking sugar in stevia, monkfruit and keto reduced-sugar products.

Some health food people are still promoting stevia. These people are vicious retards.

The only “healthy” sugar is from fruit, and even that is not really very healthy.

Additional lab and animal research presented in both papers revealed erythritol and xylitol may cause blood platelets to clot more readily. Clots can break off and travel to the heart, triggering a heart attack, or to the brain, triggering a stroke.

Xylitol is cheaper to make than cane sugar and so more and more keeps getting incorporated as a sugar substitute into food. Some 12-ounce drinks that use xylitol as a major artificial sweetener can contain 30 grams or more,” he said. “You can even buy it in bulk at the grocery store where you’re told to use as a one-to-one substitute for sugar in home cooking.”

Research has shown some artificial sweeteners may create a backlash in the metabolic system, triggering the body to expect more calories, thus making weight loss more difficult.

It is literally a “weight loss substitute” that makes you fatter.

People are so retarded.
