The infamous Cola Brainwash
The infamous Cola Brainwash

See this is how they sell your useless products. In 1891, Coca Cola sold you toilet cleaner with a fancy label “Brain tonic”. It is our weakness, to become super smart using shortcuts.

For almost 130 years, people drank it without a second thought. And this was the century of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Day by day, generation after generation, it became part of daily diet.

Situation is so worse now that, even if you show evidences, people won’t listen and keep enjoying their high sugar drinks. May be there destiny.

For sane and sensitive,

What you eat affects how you think. Eating a high-fructose diet over the long term alters your brain’s ability to learn and remember information. It makes you stupid day by day.

Choice is yours. Think about and take care.

This is your brain on sugar: UCLA study shows high-fructose diet sabotages learning, memory

Attention, college students cramming between midterms and finals: Binging on soda and sweets for as little as six weeks may make you stupid.
A new UCLA rat study is the first to show how a diet steadily high in fructose slows the brain, hampering memory and learning — and how omega-3 fatty acids can counteract the disruption. The peer-reviewed Journal of Physiology publishes the findings in its May 15 edition.

 “Our findings illustrate that what you eat affects how you think,”

“Our findings illustrate that what you eat affects how you think,” said Fernando Gomez-Pinilla, a professor of neurosurgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a professor of integrative biology and physiology in the UCLA College of Letters and Science. “Eating a high-fructose diet over the long term alters your brain’s ability to learn and remember information. But adding omega-3 fatty acids to your meals can help minimize the damage.”
Sources of fructose in the Western diet include cane sugar (sucrose) and high-fructose corn syrup, an inexpensive liquid sweetener. The syrup is widely added to processed foods, including soft drinks, condiments, applesauce and baby food.
While earlier research has revealed how fructose harms the body through its role in diabetes, obesity and fatty liver, this study is the first to uncover how the sweetener influences the brain.
Sources of fructose in the Western diet include cane sugar (sucrose) and high-fructose corn syrup, an inexpensive liquid sweetener. The syrup is widely added to processed foods, including soft drinks, condiments, applesauce and baby food. The average American consumes roughly 47 pounds of cane sugar and 35 pounds of high-fructose corn syrup per year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture
