Purdue professor Susan E. Swithers believes that industry-funded studies can mis- lead consumers by claiming improved outcomes when inappropriate compar- isons are made. Children who enjoy sweetened soft drinks consume more total calories and sugar compared with their water- and milk-drinking peers, according to a new study, "Consumption of Low-cal- orie Sweetened Beverages is Associat- ed with Higher Total Energy and Sug- ar Intake Among Children, NHANES 2011-2016," published Thursday (May 2) in the journal Pediatric Obesity. Susan E. Swithers, a professor in Purdue University's Department of Psychological Sciences, is a co-au- thor of the study, which sought to un- derstand the effects of consuming bev- erages that contain artificial sweeten- ers on children's eating and drinking patterns. "We don't usually think about it this way, but drinking a soda is not so dif- ferent from eating a candy bar," Swith- ers said. "As adults wouldn't eat a full- size candy bar with all of our meals, even if it was sugar-free. We also wouldn't think that giving a kid a can- dy bar every day was a particularly healthy choice, even if that candy bar was sugar-free. Somehow, having a so- da seems different to us, but they real- ly are just candy in a can. We shouldn't really be surprised that drinking soda, even diet soda, doesn't produce bene- fits compared to drinking water or oth- er unsweetened drinks." The participants who consumed un- sweetened beverages reported the low- est overall total calorie intake at about 1,560 calories per day. Drinkers of ei- ther sugary or artificially-sweetened beverages consumed similar amounts of energy daily, but both were higher than those in the unsweetened group. The largest intakes of energy, howev- er, were seen in children who drank both types of sweetened beverages at around 2,010 calories daily, an increase of almost 30 percent. Total sugar in- take and added sugar intake were also greatest in children consuming both sugary and artificially-sweetened bev- erages. "These data suggest that instead of using diet soft drinks as substitutes for sugary beverages, children may actu- ally be adding them to their normal sugar intake," Swithers said. "Such high intakes of sugar and sugar sub- stitutes are problematic, because they have been hypothesized to groom chil- dren's' palates to expect that foods are supposed to taste incredibly sweet. They may not want an apple anymore when they're used to hypersweet foods and beverages." Swithers said one theory in psychol- ogy called classical conditioning might explain how sugar substitutes could promote greater consumption of sug- ar. Classical conditioning is a type of learning in which the body pairs sen- sory input, such as taste, with a corre- sponding biological response. With sugar, the sweet taste activates the body's metabolic functions so that it can more efficiently process the in- coming energy. With artificial sweet- eners, the sweet taste occurs but the energy doesn't arrive. This may lead the body to stop responding to the sweet taste stimulus even when real sugar arrives, as has been shown in rodent studies. In those studies, when sugar actually reappeared after arti- ficial sweeteners, the animal was not prepared to absorb the energy and re- acted more slowly. This is one way ar- tificial sweeteners may cause a slow- er metabolism, which could lead to weight gain or health complications, like Type 2 diabetes.
