This would explain why little fat kids with sticky fingers are morons. I used to think that it was because children are just idiots and don't learn anything anyway, now I know it's because of all the sugar. The only problem I find here is that I was a smart kid and I used to eat candy all the time. My parents bought stock in Mars, Inc. simply because I ate so much candy. Now to know that if I didn't eat any candy I probably could have cured cancer by now? I would be disappointed if candy wasn't so damn good.
TL;DR A study on lab rats found that sugar has an adverse effect on your ability to learn.
