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.

processed, packaged goodies and munch on all-natural sweets instead, like fresh

Sugar doesn't really make you stupid, it makes slows down reflexes and causes you to be somewhat lathergic. It might look like the mice are stupid, but that's only because they are simpler animals. You know ghe sluggish feeling you get after eating a little too much junk food? Yeah, that's basically all this article is referring to.

The title got your attention though, didn't it?

Uh.. The title is kind of misleading... sugar doesnt make you stupid, it makes you slower. But slow and steady wins the race, so you could still be bright even if you consume sugar. I LOVE sugar [I KNOW its bad for me...] and Im in all the smartest classes, taking Algebra 1 Honors in 7th grade. Its a well-written, informative atricle, just wish the title wasnt so... wrong.

XD XD LOL @fearless;)
But really, i know that sugar can slow you down, but this artical does not have a good title. i mean really? "sugar makes yo stupid." now girls will be all "omg omg omg i just ate sugar im gonna fail my grade" exept from that it is a pretty good artical
