Sugar bad for the brain?
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- A new study finds too much of the sweet stuff is bad for your brain; another reason you may want to cut back on the sugar.
Researchers at the University of California say rats who were fed high-fructose corn syrup had a hard time finding their way through a maze.
The sweetener is found in soda, baby food and processed snack food.
Health officials say the average American consumes more than 40 pounds of high-fructose corn syrup per year.
