UCLA study - too much sugar affects brain!

Why Half of America May Have Impaired Brain Function by 2030

Dr. Mercola, September 02 2012

Story at-a-glance

  • A new UCLA study shows that fructose impairs your memory and learning; this is the first study to demonstrate that excess fructose consumption can directly damage your brain
  • The research also indicates that omega-3 fats, specifically DHA, can mitigate fructose’s damaging effects on brain function
  • Concern over skyrocketing obesity rates have inspired a new four-part HBO documentary series called “The Weight of the Nation”, which can be viewed in its entirety for free
  • Dangerous type 2 diabetes drugs are again brought into the spotlight by a whistleblower who reports that Takeda Pharmaceuticals concealed and downplayed adverse events reports for its diabetes drug Actos, including hundreds of reports of heart failure; the drug has been banned in Germany and France and is the subject of hundreds of lawsuits, but continues to be sold in the U.S.
