Can Eating too Much Sugar Make You Dumb?

Here's another reason to cut back on the sugar.

A new study finds too much of the sweet stuff is bad for your brain.

Researchers at the University of California Los Angeles say rats who were fed high-fructose corn syrup had a hard time finding their way through a maze.

The sweetener is found in soda, baby food and processed snack foods.

Health officials say the average American consumes more than 40 pounds of high-fructose corn syrup a year.

The study was published in the Journal of Physiology.
