Jeff Bland on Sugar Sweeteners

Jeff discusses some recent research which demonstrates how sweeteners affect the functioning of HDL cholesterol, the “friendly” or health promoting cholesterol. It showed that although the number stayed the same, their ability to do their job changed. That is, their function changed. This is important as it makes us ask the question… “How do we measure the subtle effects on our physiology of new substances/chemicals in the environment?” It is these subtle effects which lead to “disease” over time that we are often ignoring.
