These guys arent creationists by any chance. seems like the type of thing theyd come up with.
also new study finds- oranges are aptly named
LOL!, Right!? That's the most bull-crap study I've ever ever ever read.
Wow. This is a bad time to mention that I work at Vanderbilt...
How high were those scientists, really? ;)
OMFG...I am stealing that icon from you. That is like...treasure to me. <3 you for it. :):):) I have the static image saved already (I posted it a while back).
Hyperactivity in children + sugar may not be a direct causal link. PROBABLY there's a metabolic/chemical imbalance...at least...that could be one indirect relationship. Children affected by sugar may have a predisposition....
Yay! ;) Glad to assist.
And a predisposition to what?
I've never met a kid who wasn't effected by sugar and I've worked with lots. lol
One of my kids in Wonka was RIDICULOUS. Joe - the cutest thing ever....MANIC MANIC MANIC. We had pizza and soda at the first dress rehearsal, and i come up to his table to ask how they're doing, and he says "THEY SWITCHED MY COCACOLA WITH SPRITE BECAUSE THEY SAID I COULDN'T HAVE ANYMORE." LOL!!!!!!!!
then the next day he says "I HAD A MOUNTAIN DEW WITH SEVEN SUGARS IN IT." Luckily, I can match (if not beat) their manic energy, so I just scooped him up and ran down the hall screaming "YOU'VE GOT TO CALM DOWN JOSEPH!!!!"
LOL! That's hysterical!!! ;)
Theatre kids are the worst fo all with sugar in my experience.
I remember being in a play that had school performances, so we missed school to do the show... I musta been about 11, and I was playing the eldest Herdman daughter in a specific Christmas-time show.. and I walked into the boys dressing room and all the Herdman boys were crushing up smarties, and snorting them before a show. LOL.
I totally partook. And I was like "This sucks, guys!!"
But they had a high energy perfomance.
According to studies at both The University of Iowa School of Medicine and Vanderbilt University, there is overwhelming evidence that children who do not become hyperactive from ingesting large amounts of sugar may be aliens from another planet.
I don't think I know a person who isn't affected in at least a SMALL way by sugar. Weird.
lol!!! Right!? Thank you!
I don't know if I ever became truly hyper from sugar consumption when I was younger, or if it was merely the suggestion of hyperness as a result of sugar consumption that provided a placebo effect, or simply acted as a subconscious justification for hyperness... because when you're little, pretty much everything's more fun when you're hyper.
I DO know for a fact, though, that eating sugary foods wakes me up when I'm really, really sleepy. Like sleep-deprived sleepy. It's saved my butt in more than a few classes, haha.
Caffeine just makes me uncomfortably jittery. ):
I really think caffeine and sugar basially have the same effect. Especially in youngin's!
Super cooled liquids! Yay!
You do know they stol that poor walrus's bucket, right?
must be all that meth the kids are doing these days :p
SUGAR doesn't cause hyperactivity. Caffeine does. And caffeine is very often associated with sugar. It's in chocolate, for example, which most candy has. In addition, kids often get lots of sugar in environments with lots of stimulation, like birthday parties.
Try giving a regular four year old two pixxie stix and see what happens. :)
