Attention to binge on sweets and excessive consumption of XNUMX/XNUMX cup sugar. Overdoing it can put you at risk the memory. In fact, those who consume too much sugar could compromise the correct functionality of the nervous system, with a possible inflammation in the hippocampus area, according to the most recent studies.

A group of Australian researchers fromSouth Wales University of Medical Science, in Sydney, hypothesized that consuming large amounts of sugar in a short amount of time can cause permanent damage to our memory. The study in question was published in the scientific journal Brain Behavior and Immunity.

From experiments conducted in the laboratory, scientists have found that brain damage could compromise the ability to perform the simplest actions and create a real state of confusion - these are data to be confirmed for humans. The cause is given by the administration of sugar in high doses. Studies in this regard will require further study.

The reference, in particular, is to refined sugar, already several times under indictment as an ingredient capable of promoting the spread of diabetes and obesity. Eating too much sweets, in addition to having the negative effect of compromising our figure, could be harmful to the brain and nervous system.

Well, it would be good never overdo it with sweets and the amount of sugar to add to drinks. During the end of the year holidays an exception to the rule is allowed, but maybe in the next twelve months, we prefer healthier alternatives to snacks and sweets, such as fresh fruit or dried fruit. Finally, let's not forget the many natural alternatives to refined sugar.
