Fructose And Memory


09.02.2016 BY: RUSSELLUNDSTROM


1 out of every 3 Americans are destroying their memories by eating one specific ingredient in their food and 90% are completely unaware of it.

But the big food companies don’t want you to know about this.

In fact, they are spending millions of dollars right now to fight the FDA on current label changes that will tell you how much of this one ingredient you are eating.

What is this one memory decaying ingredient?

It’s Sugar….

Sugar has become the principal poison in our diets -- blamed by many nutritionists and public health officials for myriad health ills, including the obesity epidemic and chronic conditions like diabetes and heart disease.

– Washington Post

But not just any sugar. One specific sugar

Fructose. And even more specific – High Fructose Corn Syrup.

The scariest thing is what this fructose is doing to your memory… it is chronic and happens slowly over time making you forgetful, insecure and frustrated.

Eating too much of fructose increases your risk of Alzheimer’s disease by 70%. A full HALF of all people over 85 already have Alzheimer’s disease.

More and more studies are being done on the effects of fructose on your brain and memory.

Here’s what they have found:

The average American adult male eats 187 more calories a day than he did 25 years ago. The average female eats 335 calories more a day .

There is a chemical produced in your body called leptin that tells your brain that you are full after eating.

Your leptin signals aren’t working. There is something wrong with your biochemical feedback mechanism in your brain that normally controls your food intake.

What caused it and how do you reverse it?

To answer, we need to look back at what started this epidemic.

The year was 1982.

A study came out that showed high LDL levels lead to heart disease. And it was discovered that high fat created high LDL levels.

So, the assumption was that if you lowered fat, you would then prevent heart disease.

You know what they say about assuming…

Based on ONE study, the American Heart Association, the American Medical Association and the US Department of Agriculture told us to reduce our fat from 40 to 30% of our total food intake.

And we did.

Everything went fat free… from fat free yogurts to fat free chips and fat free ice cream. Low fat became all the rage.

We succeeded. We reduced our fat intake from 40% to 30% of our total diets.

Did it stop heart disease?

Absolutely not. In fact, heart disease soared…

And the average American gained 25 pounds.

Fat content in food went down, and obesity went up.

It’s not the fat.

All our diets have been based on a 30 year old study with faulty logic.

So if it’s not the fat, what is it? Why are we eating more? Why isn’t our leptin telling our brain we are full and so we eat more and more?

Well, the answers are in the numbers.

We have seen a 41% increase in soft drink consumption and a 35% increase in fruit and sports drink consumption in children ages 2-17 since 1989 .

Just that alone is a HUGE piece of this epidemic.

But this isn’t news to you – most of us have some idea that drinking one can of soda a day creates 15.6 extra pounds a year.

But what does it do to your food intake?

If you take a child to a fast food restaurant and give him a can of soda, does he eat more or less?

He eats more.

But how can he eat more if he just consumed 150 calories from the soda?

His leptin doesn’t work. There is nothing telling him that he is full.

These sugary drinks suppress the leptin. And the big food companies know it. They are making you fat on purpose so you’ll buy and drink more.

And here’s the smoking gun…

In 1955, the average soda bottle was 10 ounces. Today it is 20 ounces.

They tell you the 20 ounces is 2.5 servings, but we all know everyone drinks the whole thing in one sitting.

And what do the soda drinks have in them?

First, they have a ton of caffeine which makes you dehydrated. Then they have a ton of salt – 55 g in fact - which makes you pee more which makes you more dehydrated. Caffeine and salt combined make you very thirsty, so you drink more.

But all that salt doesn’t taste good. So, they HAVE to put in all the sugar to hide the salt flavor.

They know what they’re doing.

But 88 different independent studies showed that drinking one can of sugary soda a day increases your Body Mass Index by 29.2% in one year.

Those studies funded by the beverage industry repeatedly show smaller effects of sugar on obesity than independent studies.

So, they put in even more sugar.

Prior to WWII, the average American ate 16-25 grams a day of sugar.

By 1978, this number reached 37 grams a day .

By 2008, this number had sky rocketed to 76.6 grams a day :

So, it’s not just that we are eating more, we are eating more sugar.

1 in 3 Americans are pre-diabetic. 90% of them are in the dark about their condition.

Prediabetes increases your risk of Alzheimer’s disease by 70%.

The fat’s going down, the sugar’s going up and we’re all getting fat and heading down the path towards dementia.

But let’s talk about the REAL enemy here. The fructose.

For this one, let’s go back in time one more time to 1975.

Sugar was very expensive and the large food companies were looking for a way to sweeten food cheaply.

The solution… an easy, cheap sweetener from Japan called high fructose corn syrup

High fructose corn syrup has a 20% sweeter flavor than sugar (73% more with lab created corn syrup) and is cheap to produce and store.

It was the perfect solution. Replace the costly sugar with the cheap high fructose corn syrup.

BUT, with the higher level of sweetness you would have guessed that food companies used less high fructose corn syrup to replace sugar, right?

Wrong. They use more. Lots more.

Prior to 1975, high fructose corn syrup didn’t even exist in our diets. Today, the average American eats 63 pounds of it a year.

And it’s in almost everything you eat. Bread, cereal, meats, ketchup, yogurts… the list goes on and on.

If you took away all the foods on a grocery store shelf with high fructose corn syrup in it, you’d only have 20% of the foods left.

Not only did food companies replace fat with high fructose corn syrup, they replaced the fiber with it, too.

You see, foods with lots of fiber don’t store very long on grocery store shelves. But if you remove all the fiber, they can last a long time on a store shelf.

But, they end up tasting like cardboard.

So the food companies brought in even more fructose so that you would eat that frozen hamburger patty that has been shipped around the world.

We used to eat 100-300 grams of fiber a day. Now it’s 12.

Fiber simply gives food a shorter shelf life, takes too long to cook and takes too long to eat.

So, out it goes.

One major problem is that we’re eating more sugar in the form of fructose.

Another HUGE problem is how your body metabolizes fructose.

Fructose does not suppress your hunger hormone, leptin.

And fructose can only be processed by the liver.

Do you know what they call a substance that can only be processed by the liver?

That is the definition of a poison.

And your addiction to this poison is causing a slow, chronic decline in your memory.

The more fructose you eat, the more insulin you produce to regulate that sugar.

As you over-indulge on fructose and grains, your brain becomes overwhelmed by the high levels of insulin.

Eventually insulin and leptin levels profoundly disrupt your brain signaling, leading to troubles in your thinking and memory. Eventually, it causes permanent brain damage.

Why? They claim they only regulate acute toxins. They consider fructose a chronic toxin.

So the FDA won’t touch it.

The USDA won’t touch it. They’d have to admit there was a problem with your food.

But fructose doesn’t just make you fat. Your high fructose diet is destroying your memory.

Even if you don’t have type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes, higher blood sugar levels have a negative influence on cognition…

In one study, when researchers disrupted the proper signaling of insulin in the brain, they were able to create many of the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease (disorientation, confusion, inability to learn and remember).

About 85% of Americans are insulin and leptin resistant, mostly due to eating too much fructose.

Research has even shown that higher fructose levels are associated with a higher perceived age.

In other words, the higher your fructose levels, the older you’ll tend to look!

In one study from UCLA, researchers found that rats fed a fructose-rich diet developed both insulin resistance and impaired brain function in ONLY six weeks.

Eating a high-fructose diet over the long term alters your brain's ability to learn and remember information… Our study shows that a high-fructose diet harms the brain as well as the body.

Fernando Gomez-Pinilla
Professor of neurosurgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA

The amount of clinical research that has piled up over the past 10 years linking fructose to over 70 diseases is nothing short of shocking.

Your memories are stored in a section of your brain called the hippocampus.

In the case of your hippocampus, size does matter.

Patients with Alzheimer’s and even mild cases of memory loss have hippocampus shrinkage.

And now scientists have discovered that high blood sugar can cause your hippocampus to shrink.

They found that the average blood sugar is “strongly associated with memory performance.”

Your memory center is getting eaten away by your fructose filled drinks and sodas and you eating breads and sweets.

It’s time to spread the word.

Instead of low fat, we should all be eating low fructose.
