By now, you've heard the litany of adverse health effects
linked to being overweight --- increased risk for heart
disease, diabetes, stroke, and erectile dysfunction, to name a
few. But now, you can add one more to the list -- brain

Yes, scientists have now discovered that being overweight
actually is associated with having less brain matter. The
study, released from the University of Cambridge in the UK,
studied 473 overweight people.  The study was led by Dr.
Lisa Ronan and Professor Paul Fletcher.

The participants in the study ranged in age from 20 to 87 and
had a body mass index of over 25. To put that into
perspective, the average BMI in the US is estimated to be
over 27.

Having a BMI over 30 makes you officially "obese" so we are
not talking about super-heavy participants.

What the scientists learned was that the volume of "white
matter" in the brains of the overweight participants,
beginning in middle age, was significantly less in total volume
than a normal weight person of the same age. In fact, by
comparing brain volume against age, they were able to say
that the amount of white matter in the brain of an overweight
50 year old was about the same as the amount of white
matter in the brain of a normal weight 50 year old.  

Does This Mean That Being Overweight Ages Your Brain 10

We can't make that leap. Yes, the total volume of white
matter was less in the brains of the overweight participant.
But that lower white matter volume did not affect IQ at all.

The study could not conclude that the lower levels of white
matter put these heavier people more at risk for cognitive
decline. The scientists only could say that they will follow the
participants to see if, years later, differences in cognitive
decline ( dementia, Alzheimer's and so on) would show up.

Other Studies Have in Fact Connected the Dots Between
Obesity and Dementia

Several other studies, however, have in fact linked obesity
with dementia. In 2011, a seven-person scientific team lead
by Dr. Linda B. Hassing of the University of Gothenburg n
Sweden  studies data first taken in 1963 of Swedish twins.

The 1963 landmark study followed 1152 Swedish twins from
the ages of 45 to 65 years old fro 40 years.

At the end of 40 years, after looking at the data on who
developed dementia, the scientists were able to conclude that
being overweight at midlife put you at a 59% greater risk for
developing dementia.

Being overweight at midlife puts you at a 71% greater risk
for developing Alzheimer's, a specific form of dementia.  
Moreover, being overweight at midlife puts you at a 36%
increased risk for developing vascular dementia.

In this Swedish study and others, the effects on your brain of
being overweight are more pronounced in women than men,
for reasons that scientists do not yet understand.

Carrying Weight Around Your Middle Is Especially Dangerous
to Your Brain

Being overweight is not good news for your body in general
and your brain in particular. But the worse condition you can
have, in terms of your brain health, is abdominal obesity.

Carrying weight around your middle can increase your risk
for dementia by 300%, according to a 2008 study from
Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland, California.

The study looked at 6,583 people who were a part of Kaiser
Permanente's health system. At the end of 30 years, 1049 of
these people had developed dementia, about 15% of the

Compared to the people at the smaller range of waist sizes,
those at the largest end of the range had a 272% higher rate
of dementia.

Even those people whose overall body weight was normal
but who had fat around their waist lines had a 89% higher
risk for dementia than those with normal waist sizes.

Bottom line in all of these studies--- stay as close to your
ideal body weight as possible and, even when you get there,
work extra hard at trimming your waist down to a health
