Quote:The caudate head is a part of the brain involved in controlling food intake and signaling reward — a kind of mental red light that says “enough!” Decreased caudate head activity in diet soda drinkers suggests that this careful reward system was thrown off.

However, the diet soda (yay/nay) debate still rages on -

My personal thoughts on artificial sweeteners is that, as we know, doesn't provide your body with any calories from sugar (fast carbs) as your body expects. Natural sweeteners such as sugar, honey, agave nectar, fructose etc. are all high in calories. I think there's a good reason for that. Everything we eat triggers a hormone response in our body and by not providing quick energy as the body expects when you eat/drink artificial sweeteners, you not only eat more (as proved by research), but I think it also causes some hormone disruptions which could also have pretty unpredictable consequences in your brain.

It appears that society is eating more increased ssugar/sweetener via processed foods, which I believe has brought with it many other ills; but the article below excludes honey.

Quote:With the exception of honey they rarely occur in such refined forms in nature and most foods have a lower glycemic index. This means that the carbs are released more slowly into the bloodstream, and over a longer period of time. Releasing large quantities of sugar into the bloodstream creates a shock to the system, and the body reacts by producing insulin. This can put a strain on the pancreas and liver and over time lead to the development of diabetes.

I only use honey, and not much of it. We just don't eat any sugar anymore and never buy processed foods. It's quite incredible how your taste perception changes when you cut out sugar. You start tasting the natural sweetness in everything, like milk and berries.

Interesting, but are artificial sweeteners added to milk, I wonder?

No they're not. But it has lactose which is milk sugar.
