Glucose itself is necessary – problems arise when there is an excess of it.
Sugar and excessive refined carbohydrates damage the brain. “The reason this happens is that an excess of glucose, much like oxidants, damages nerve cells and stops them working properly. This happens because glucose reacts with proteins in the brain and nervous system. This reaction, called glycation, stops the protein from moving freely and membranes start to get thicker and ‘gunked up’, slowing down brain communication.”
