Too Much Sugar Inhibits Cognitive Repair & Function

Via this study:

MetS as a result of fructose consumption exacerbates the deleterious effects of TBI on cognitive function. We propose a framework for a potential model in which fructose and TBI affect systems related to cell energy metabolism, which converge on intracellular pathways that regulate brain plasticity and cognitive function (Figure 7). Our results show the harmful impact of metabolic disease on the outcome of TBI with regards to mitochondrial biogenesis, synaptic plasticity, and cognitive function. These data suggest that fructose consumption reduces neural resilience and may predispose the brain toward cognitive dysfunction and lifelong susceptibility to neurological disorders.

When will this be on the 5am, 6am, 11am, 12am, 4pm, 5pm, 10pm news?

  1. Maybe when it’s replicated in humans. There are thousands of studies in mice with results that are not applicable to humans.
