Many people believe if they turn to the low-calorie sugar substitute known as xylitol they are making the healthier choice by picking this alternative over sugar, but recent data says otherwise. 

In a new study.. researchers found a link between xylitol and increased risk of heart attack or even stroke.. leading them to believe there's an association between the two.  

For more.. we're joined LIVE on the KCBS Ring central newsline by.. DR. SCOTT KAHAN (kuh-HAHN).. Director of the National Center for Weight and Wellness in Washington D-C and a faculty-member at the George Washington University School of Medicine. He was not involved in the study.
