Sugar Does Rot Your Brain After All

Time to lower your sugar intake.

Scientists from the University of Bath have just found the first connection between excess blood sugar glucose and Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers in this unprecedented study found what they describe as a molecular “tipping point,” where a crucial enzyme related to inflammation response and insulin regulation is damaged by excess glucose. While the scientists involved do not make the direct assertion, the takeaway is Alzheimer’s disease may be triggered by consuming too much sugar.

This latest research has uncovered the specific molecular link between glucose and Alzheimer’s. So forget the extra pounds from drinking too much soda and eating too many donuts: sugar may be truly rotting your brain.
