Americans eat a lot of sugary foods. We know the habit is quite probably wrecking our bodies, triggering high rates of overweight and diabetes. Is it also wrecking our brains?

This is interesting, and not surprising. I've avoided white sugar for years, because it's like a drug, at least for me. Thanks, Cal.

Animals were tortured and killed for this. Vivisection is faulty science and the info does not apply to humans. Why not do surveys in alzheimers patients diets (or is that too much work).

We most certainly intuitively sense that sugar is bad for us. Now we know just how bad.

Here is another good reason to load up on plants in your diet through veggies and fruits.
