Researchers claim to link memory problems to sugary drinks

Sugary drinks soda

A new study found that what your children drink could impact their memory in the future.

Researchers say teens who drink a lot of sugary drinks may be at risk for memory problems.

Experts tested a range of rats after giving them daily access to sugary drinks for a month.

Although the adult rats performed normally, the younger rats scored lower on learning and memory tests.

Brain scans show the sugar caused inflammation in the area of the brain linked to memory function.
