Belly Fat Could Lead to Dementia

Ad Feedback

Belly fat in middle age can lead to problems with your mind later in life, according to a new study from Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.

Researchers found people who have high rates of belly fat are about three and a half times as likely to develop memory loss and dementia when they're older.
 
They also found that people with more belly fat have a smaller amount of a key protein important for memory and learning in their bodies.

Scientists suggest losing weight could help you avoid memory problems as you get older.
