The study, by the depart- ment of nutrition and dietetics, found that a small quantity of sugar, or sugar substitute, depresses the body's metabolism and hin- ders physical performance and resistance. The year-long study, initiated by the university's faculties of medicine and physical education, was made with an amateur hockey team split into groups. A control group was left free to consume candy and chocolate bars, while the rest of the team was split into a sugar-free group and a test group exposed to increasing sugar-bearing diets over an eight-month period. Researchers said "the sugar-free group's, physical performance improved by 63 per cent over the first few months of the experiment." Thp groups on regular sugar and increasing sugar-bearing diets "saw their ability to play good hockey drop to the level of incompetency as more and more gum and chocolate was added to their diet. The report stated each youth on the sugar bearing diet "had a severely weaken- ed metabolism and was physically inferior to every youth from the rest of the team." Scientists explained "diges- tion of the sugar or sugar sub- stitutes contained in the candy robbed the body of its energy at the time where the game called on maximum ability. "Concentration, resistance and physical strength dropped surprisingly, even for small amounts of sugar ingested." In concluding, scientists ex- pressed hope that advertisers "aiming their pitch at children would take in account this effect of candy on young athletes and stop making use of sport as a charismatic context for chocolate or chewing-gum consumption."
