Ask any parent, grandparent, teacher, babysitter, person with eyes: when a child eats too much sugar, they go bananas with hyperactivity. It's obvious -- literally the one thing everybody agrees with. Except it's just not true. There is no scientific evidence - and never has been - that kids who eat too much sugar behave any differently afterwards than if they had no sugar. So what's going on? How could this universal "truth" be, well, untrue? Hear the evidence on this week's episode. Also: Steel making videos, a billion seconds, surface temperature thermometers, China rewards and punishes citizens based on "merit," wombat faeces, peanut allergy treatment, NY pays Amazon $48,000 per job, and the Art Institute of Chicago releases high-res art for free. Enjoy this week's episode with a nice warm cup of sugar!
