Sugar rush

I have tested a few myths today.

1. Drinking coca cola is like drinking sugared water.
False: cola contains 40.5g sugar while a glucose intolersnce test contains 75g sugar (35ml). The latter tastes insanely sweet even with lemon juice added.

2. A high intake of sugar make you hyperactive.
False: the said test did not cause me to leave my chair in the waiting room and gave me nothing but a massive headache.
