Is it a good idea to drink diet drinks? Is it okay for the beneficial bacteria in your gut?
Scientists that exposed gut bacteria to six major classes of artificial sugars found that it had an adverse effect on the flora. The gut bacteria quickly began to produce toxins in response to being exposed to artificial sugars.
Artificial sugars have now been linked to so many different types of diseases, like reducing your risk of getting pregnant and an increased risk of stroke.

Artificial sweeteners have also been linked to diabetes, obesity, and dementia. More recently, the link has been made to a disruption of the bowel flora.
To my mind, it is clear that artificial sweeteners are not something you want to have in your body.
People who drink diet pop should be very careful. They could be altering their gut bacteria for the worse.
Artificial sugars aren’t just in diet drinks. They are found in well over half of the foods found in supermarkets in America. It’s entirely possible that you are unknowingly eating these sugars and affecting your bowel flora.
Make sure you read the package of everything you buy to see if it contains any artificial sugar. If it does, put it back. You don’t want to be eating that kind of stuff.
