Maternal Exposure to Non-nutritive Sweeteners Negatively Impacts Progeny’s Microbiome and Liver Health

Yet another study shows the damage that zero-calorie sweeteners pose to the gut microbiome. About 20% of people above age two in America consume two diet soft drinks per day.  A majority of diet soda drinkers are women. Multiple clinical have shown have detrimental health effects related to non-nutritive sweetenersRead …
