The Relationship between Sugar and Dementia

There has long been an established link between high glucose levels in diabetics and dementia, but now, researchers are discovering even more about the relationship between sugar and memory loss. This video explains more.

While studying the impacts of a high-sugar diet, researchers found that people without diabetes who ate a high-sugar diet had a higher risk of developing dementia than people who ate a low-sugar diet. The more sugar consumed, the greater the level of memory loss. These results indicate that there is an even stronger correlation between blood glucose and dementia than previously believed.
