  1. Wow these articles are extremely mind-explosive. You have different people saying different things. I like reading these. Why don`t we make it a daily habit? (Not only for this unit) I am looking forward to the next article to read! đź’—

  2. Here’s a proof that sugar DOES NOT make kids or us hyperactive. Has scientific proof. REAL. Read this to find out:

    Lots of parents swear that a single hit of birthday cake holds the power to morph their well-behaved, polite youngster into a sticky hot mess that careens around a room while emitting eardrum-piercing shrieks. Anyone who has had the pleasure to attend a 5-year-old’s birthday party knows that the hypothesis sounds reasonable, except that science has found that it’s not true.

    Sugar doesn’t change kids’ behavior, a double-blind research study found way back in 1994. A sugary diet didn’t affect behavior or cognitive skills, the researchers report. Sugar does change one important thing, though: parents’ expectations. After hearing that their children had just consumed a big sugar fix, parents were more likely to say their child was hyperactive, even when the big sugar fix was a placebo, another study found.

    Of course, there are plenty of good reasons not to feed your kids a bunch of sugar, but fear of a little crazed sugar monster isn’t one of them.

    So did we change our mind?🤔

  3. Another proof. From another scientist who did valid experiments.

    If a child eats cotton candy, a chocolate bar or any other kind of sugary treat, will a hyperactive frenzy follow? While some parents may swear that the answer is “yes,” research shows that it’s just not true.
    Yes, that’s right. “Sugar does not appear to affect behavior in children,” said Dr. Mark Wolraich, chief of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at Oklahoma University Health Sciences Center, who researched sugar’s effect on children in the 1990s.

    Instead, parent’s expectations of so-called “sugar highs” appear to color the way they view their children’s behavior, Wolraich said. It’s easy to see why parents make the link: Sugar is often the main attraction at birthday parties, on Halloween and other occasions when children are likely to bounce off the walls. But all that energy is due to kids being excited, not from the sugar in their systems, he said. [Is Sugar Bad for You?]

    If parents believe that sugar affects their children’s behavior, “their ideas are reinforced by seeing it in those circumstances,” Wolraich told Live Science.

    The misconception comes from the idea that increased blood sugar levels translate into hyperactive behavior. It’s true that someone with low blood-sugar levels (known as having hypoglycemia) can get an energy boost from drinking a sugar-filled drink. But it’s a different story if someone has a sugary treat when he or she doesn’t have low blood sugar.

    “The body will normally regulate those sugars. If it needs it, it will use the energy,” Wolraich said. “If it doesn’t need it, it will convert it to fat for storage.”

    That’s right — if you have a donut when your blood sugar level is already just fine, those extra sugars may be converted into fat.
