Artificial Sweeteners

 ... can be bad for you in various ways.  Most of these are not new.

However, this is the first time I've seen a reference to decoupling as a problem.  If confirmed by other studies, this would mean ANY sweetener with low or no calories -- whether artificial or natural -- would cause problems when combined with carbohydrates.  That includes stevia, a natural sweetener.  :/ The body uses sweetness to gauge how much is being consumed, how to process it, and when to feel satisfied.  Break the link between sweetness and carbohydrates, then the body gets confused and bad things start happening.
