Sugar makes you stupid: Study shows high-fructose diet sabotages learning, memory

[link to medicalxpress.com]

[snip]

A new UCLA rat study 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 peer-reviewed Journal of Physiology publishes the findings in its May 15 edition.

"Our findings illustrate that what you eat affects how you think," said Fernando Gomez-Pinilla, a professor of neurosurgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a professor of integrative biology and physiology in the UCLA College of Letters and Science. "Eating a high-fructose diet over the long term alters your brain's ability to learn and remember information. But adding omega-3 fatty acids to your meals can help minimize the damage."

While earlier research has revealed how fructose harms the body through its role in diabetes, obesity and fatty liver, this study is the first to uncover how the sweetener influences the brain.

Symptoms that Require Emergency Treatment
If your high blood sugar level does not come down within a few hours of the above temporary measures and is accompanied by any of the following symptoms, seek emergency room treatment immediately:

vomiting
nausea
severe diarrhea
fevervisual problems
excessive sleepiness
foggy or impaired thinking

Flush out the Sugar
Drink two glasses (8 oz.) of water quickly. Wait for five minutes and drink a third glass. Urinate as soon as possible. Water dilutes the blood and flushes out the sugar from your bloodstream.

Re: Sugar Makes You Stupid
it's all about avoiding HFCS and white sugar, and using natural sweeteners like coconut nectar and pure agave...i'd take agave over white sugar or HFCS any day of the week.

Re: Sugar Makes You Stupid
Sugar makes kids stupid, too. In a study a couple of years ago in Britain, they literally tracked toddlers whose mothers served kids sweets and those who had no sugar growing up. The kids who had no sugar had several IQ points more than the kids who ate sugar, and -- get this -- the kids who ate sugar never caught up, even if later in life they stopped eating sugar.

The early developmental period period, before 5 years old, is where diet has the biggest influence on I.Q.

It's possible that one reason why Americans can't compete with Asians in math & science is that from an early age, Asians just don't eat sugar. It's not really a part of their diet. Whereas Americans start eating sugar as soon as they're weaned off baby food.

"Will junk food lower your child's IQ?
A new study suggests that feeding kids too much fat and sugar at a young age can drag down their test scores later in childhood
POSTED ON FEBRUARY 10, 2011, AT 8:47 AM

Toddlers with diets high in fat and sugar may have lower IQ scores later in childhood, a new study finds.

Feeding toddlers a steady diet of processed foods could lead to more than just obesity — it could lower their IQs, according to a new study. Researchers at England's University of Bristol found that a child's eating habits at age 3 may influence his cognitive abilities at age 8. Toddler diets high in fat and sugar were associated with lower IQ scores, while healthier eating was tied to higher scores. The report, which appears in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, is being billed as "the first study to suggest a direct link between the diet of young children and their brainpower" years later..."

The autism could be attributed to the chemicals in the food....especially DIET foods / soda and sugarless candy.

That seems more likely.

Several IQ points is not very dramatic.

Americans can't compete with Asians because of the education system. In the West in general the education system seem purposefully designed to make kids dumb instead of educating them.
