Excess sugar -- especially the fructose in sugary drinks -- might damage your brain, new research suggests. Researchers found that people who drink sugary beverages frequently are more likely to have poorer memory, smaller overall brain volume, and a significantly smaller hippocampus. A follow-up study found that people who drank diet soda daily were almost three times as likely to develop stroke and dementia when compared to those who did not.

Damaging tangles of the protein tau dot the brains of people with neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and boxer's dementia. Now, a team of scientists has found a way to measure tau levels in the blood that accurately reflects levels of tau in the brain. The study, in mice and a small group of people, could be the first step towards a non-invasive test for tau.
