Forbes.com reports that an experiment conducted by UCLA
scientists showed that giving rats a fructose solution in place of regular
drinking water were much slower at completing a maze than mice that didn’t
consume the fructose. The fructose interfered with the brain cells’ ability to
“talk” to one another, meaning that they couldn’t think quickly or clearly.
HFCS could cause your memory and
recall abilities to tank, too, just like the rats’. Yikes!
But there is good
news. The scientists also gave one group of rats a diet rich on omega-3 fatty
acids. These rats found their way through the maze quickly. The researchers
have also concluded that an omega-3-heavy diet can counteract the mind-numbing
effects of a diet high in HFCS.
