Sugar substitute Xylitol associated with increased cardiovascular risk

Xylitol is naturally found in small amounts in fruit and vegetables.

It has been used in the last years quite frequently in the food industry as a sugar substitute in diet soft-drinks, processed foods, toothpaste, chewing gum, and other products.

According to a recent study, high levels of xylitol, are linked to an increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, and death.

We need to be very cautious with sugar substitutes, since apparently some can be very harmful to our heart.
