Fructose Corn Syrup Saps Memory...

Drinking corn fructose sweetened soda (and eating foods sweetened likewise) disrupts synapse communication in the hippocampus, a brain center devoted to memory and learning.  Conversely, omega-3 fatty acid foods (fish, nuts, seeds) benefit these synapses.

Studies also show that people with a genetic propensity towards dementias should minimize intake of all foods that produce glucose. Type III diabetes is popularly known as "diabetes of the brain" / the brain produces its own insulin.
