People who consumed artificial sweeteners “always or almost always” were 33% more likely to develop diabetes after adjusting for body mass index compared to people who consumed artificial sweeteners “never or rare” according to the E3N-European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition Study.
(The risk was 83% greater before adjusting for body mass index indicating that part of the increased risk was due to a person’s adiposity.)
