CO2 #3 Sweets make you dumb, but salmon makes you smart (via AlaskaDispatch)

There's bad news for sweets lovers out of the University of California. A study from there indicates corn-syrup-laced sweets could make you dumb. But you might be OK if you eat your bonbons with a side of salmon -- or better yet, eulachon.
The UCLA findings, published in Journal of Physiology, "also show omega-3 fatty acids helping to negate the effect,'' reports Medical News Today.
Salmon, especially fresh Alaska salmon, are loaded with healthy Omega-3s. So, too, are the eulachon, or "hooligan" as they are commonly known.
Those fish are so rich omega-3-laced oil that they used to be called "candlefish." When dried, the fish will actually burn and were sometimes used as candles.
