Sugar Makes You Dumber?

Sugar makes you dumber, according to a new study.

Well, it does -- if you're a lab rat, and dumped into a maze.

According to the study:  "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."

So after a Coke you should eat some fish and, I suppose, break even.

Obviously the Corn Refiners Association (yes, such a thing exists) is not sweet on this study.  Fructose is in nature, they say.  It's okay.  Drink all you want.  Now, what were we talking about again?  And can someone get me out of this maze?
