    According to the study's abstract:

    So after taking the sugar water away from the rats who had been getting it for 26 days things changed about their brains and they moved around a lot compared to rats who'd never had sugar water. If I was a rat and somebody did that I'd probably be moving around a lot too, being like "yo where's that sugar water at, bro!?"

    I did like that at the end of that article one of the researchers pointed out that "We can't say from this work that these changes are causing the associated diseases". Meaning, if sugar is causing brain changes we can't really say that those changes are necessarily bad. Maybe they could be good? Who knows, certainly a lot of things in the body said to be "linked" to diseases don't always pan out.

    I'd like to see the full text, but I don't think it's available yet.
