If a person consumed no sugar for 12 hours, each white blood cell could destroy an average of fourteen bacteria. When 24 teaspoons of sugar were ingested (average amount in a medium piece of cheesecake or a milk shake) the white blood cells were so compromised they could only destroy an average of one bacterium each, a 92% reduction. (Nedley, Neil, M.D. Proof Positive. p 184-185. OK: Nedley. 1998, 1999.)

Many studies report drops in violent acts when, for example, residents of detention centers are fed low-or no-sugar diets. (Howard, Pierce J., PhD. The Owner’s Manual for the Brain. p 96-97. GA: Bard Press, 1994, 2000.)
