You've always been told not to eat too much sugar because you'll get a sugar high (and a crash to follow it). However, Bustle says that a new study from Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews is now showing that this sugar high you've come to know about, might not happen at all.

Researchers from the University of Warwick, Humboldt University of Berlin, and Lancaster University all worked to see if there was a change in mood with the consumption of sugar looking at alertness, anxiety, anger and other moods.

They varied the amounts of sugar and sources of sugar (food, drink, etc.) and what the participants did after consuming sugar (demanding activities, mental and physical), but did not find a link at all between changes in mood and sugar consumption.

So that sugar high and sugar crash that you have always been warned about may be just a myth that your parents used in order to eat your vegetables before having any dessert.
