iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Sugary drinks may hurt more than your waistline and teeth.
Researchers at USC found a disturbing connection between regular sweetened drink consumption in childhood and poor memory function in adulthood.
They reported that the hippocampus region of the brain -- where memories are made and stored -- is particularly sensitive to environmental assault including high fructose levels.
This includes soda, apple juice, lemonade, sports drinks, and anything with added sugar or syrup.
They recommend sugar intake be limited to four teaspoons a day.
