Enjoy drinking soda? Well don't be surprised if you start forgetting where you left your keys, because according to US scientists eating too much sugar can eat away at your brainpower.
The recently published study showed how a steady diet of high-fructose corn syrup (like those found in sugar and other refined sweet treats) sapped lab rats' memories. The study was conducted at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) where researchers fed two groups of rats a solution containing high-fructose corn syrup -- a common ingredient in processed foods -- as drinking water for six weeks.
