High-Fructose Diet Sabotages Learning, Memory

Drinking soda and eating sweets for as little as six weeks may make you stupid, according to a new UCLA study on sugar, learning and memory.

A new UCLA rat study funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke is the first to show how a diet steadily high in fructose slows the brain, hampering memory and learning — and how omega-3 fatty acids can counteract the disruption. The study was published in peer-reviewed Journal of Physiology in its May 15, 2012 edition.

[Ed: so please read those labels as most sodas contain HFCS and so do a lot of candy and cookies. This also affects cholesterol management and weight control. The Omega-3 Fatty Acids we recommend are from plants, not fish oil. Helps to oxygenate the cells as well. See YES EFAs on the ForeverYoungCooperative link]
