As a result, Swithers says, tests have found that "animals who have experience with artificial sweeteners don't seem to be as good at regulating their blood sugar levels when they get real sugar"-hence the associations with diabetes and other metabolic troubles.
Swithers says that it will take more research to untangle whether these results are consistent with her Pavlovian hypothesis--that is, whether the gut changes are triggered by fouling up our bodies' learned responses to sweetness.
