Memory and a High Fructose Diet

Contributed by: Dennis Fortier, President, Medical Care Corporation

We know that diet is important in maintaining physical as well as cognitive health. A study conducted at Georgia State University has shown that, in rats, a high fructose diet seems to interfere with recall.

We know that rats are not people and that research on one group cannot always be useful for speculating on the other group. However, given the high sugar diet of many modern humans, it is useful to understand how fructose might interfere with mammalian brain function. This study suggested a possible interference effect and raises questions that should be investigated further through additional study.
