In honor of Halloween, I feel it is necessary to inform you of something: sugar rushes aren’t real. According to studies done by Yale in 2010, sugar has no link to hyperactivity in children. In fact, in their article, they suggest that the “sugar rush” is more psychological. The article quotes “experimentation has shown that parents who believe in a link between sugar and hyperactivity see one, even though others do not” (Hunyh, Nancy). Children may also correlate sweets with the place they are served, such as birthday parties or Halloween, causing them to become naturally excited. So please, don’t blame your cupcake for your zaniness anymore, because everyone knows you are lying.
