Eating to much sugar can make you dumb

Eating too much sugar can eat away at your brainpower, according to US scientists who published a study Tuesday showing how a steady diet of high-fructose corn syrup sapped lab rats' memories.

It's not sugar - it's HFCS. And everyone already knows how crap it is for you.

 

However, this, I can't seem to buy. They tested the rats' abilities to complete a maze. They didn't test the rats' brain functions. I don't know about other people, but I know that I'm much more on my game when I eat a piece of fruit or some granola for breakfast than when I'm eating donuts and sugary cereal. It's because the healthier foods give you more energy than the sugary foods, which makes you better able to make faster connections in your brain, making your brain function more quickly. This test doesn't prove that the rats became stupider - just that their breakfast slowed them down. Show me a test that shows slowed results in the brain's actual processing of information. Then I'll be inclined to believe something like this.

Blah blah blah. Everything is going to kill us. Stop eating food or drinking liquids, people! BAD BAD BAD. Cancer this, cancer that.

 

LEAVE ME AND MY FOOD ALONE AND KEEP YOUR BOGUS "STUDIES" TO YOURSELF! :angry:

Yes, nothing like fictional character to refute scientific evidence. XD

 

Even fictional characters are more real than some people in society

You misspelled "dumber". Bahahahaha!

 

In all seriousness, this was an ultimately poorly done experiment, as others have pointed out. When I was in high school some uppity university posted a study saying people who consumed their own snot gobs gained intelligence.

 

Your intelligence isn't affected by what you eat. ^_^ Your bandwidth is.
