Most of us have a sweet tooth. We love to eat a cookie, a donut or a piece of chocolate. But have you noticed what often happens when you eat one? When we eat or drink sugary foods, the sugar enters our blood and affects part of our brain. We may feel better, but the good feeling stops and we just want another one. All tasty foods do this, but sugar has a particularly strong effect. This is why many scientists believe that our love of sugar might be an addiction. In the body, sugar acts like an addictive drug, one that doctors recommend we all cut down.

It seems obvious now that too much sugar can harm us, but why is it harmful? In early human history, the body began storing sugar as fat to use as energy. Our bodies are efficient, so they need very little sugar. Today, the Western diet has the highest amount of sugar in history. There are also more high blood pressure and diabetes in the world. Some researchers believe that too much sugar may be the culprit.

How do we battle our sweet tooth? Doctors advise us to cut down on sweets. They recommend that we choose healthy foods for snacks. Nuts, dark chocolate and yogurts are some of them. Yet even healthy foods can have too much sugar. Yogurts that are advertised as low-fat can have 17 grains, about half the daily allowance. However, the less sugar you cat, the less you want. Exercise helps, too. Using facilities such as walking tracks and gymnasiums can help control our desire.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

Many students believe that math is an inherited ability-either they have the math gene, or they don't. but a recent research shows that inborn talent might not be as important as we think. In the long run, the most successful students are often those who work the hardest, not those with the highest IQ's. These students believe that perseverance, not an innate gift, is the key to achievement.

In her book Mindset, The New Psychology of Success, Carol Dweck argues that a positive mindset is what makes some students push themselves when others give up. Students with a "fixed” mindset believe that they were born with a certain set of talents. They see challenges as a sign that they've reached the limit on their potential, and view challenges as a chance to learn and improve. They know that their intelligence can be built through experience and effort, and are not held back by the idea of inborn restrictions.

Geoff Colvin delivers a similar message in his book, Talent Is Overrated. He demonstrates that success is almost always the result of what he calls "deliberate practice", a concentrated effort to improve one's skills through focused effort. Inborn talent might make a difference when a subject is first tackled, but years later it's the hard workers who are the most successful. Math teacher Kim Callan agrees: “It is rare for a hard-working student to fail my class."

Having the right mindset is critical to success. Children need to believe in their ability to overcome challenges through concentrated effort. If you place your child in the right math class and encourage her to work hard, there's no limit to what she will be able to accomplish.
