Sugary drinks may result in poorer memory: Studies


Sugary drinks may result in poorer memory: Studies

Now, there is one more reason to stay away from sugary drinks, as they result in poorer memory.

According to studies published in Alzheimer’s & Dementia and the journal Stroke, consuming sugary beverages such as sodas and fruit juices are more likely to have poorer memory and people who drank diet soda daily were almost three times as likely to develop stroke and dementia when compared to those who did not consume diet soda.

“Our findings indicate an association between higher sugary beverage intake and brain atrophy, including lower brain volume and poorer memory,” explained corresponding author Matthew Pase.

“We also found that people drinking diet soda daily were almost three times as likely to develop stroke and dementia. This included a higher risk of ischemic stroke, where blood vessels in the brain become obstructed and Alzheimer’s disease dementia, the most common form of dementia,” he said.

The findings were published after conducting research on approximately 4,000 participants over the age of 30.

Though the study has cautioned people against regularly consuming sugary beverages, more experiments are needed to establish the link between these drinks and poorer memory.
