Study Confirms Link Between Body Fat And Reduced Brain Volume
(Santa Monica, CA) -- A new study confirms a link between body fat and reduced brain volume. An international study of ten-thousand people shows your diet and lifestyle may affect how you think. Apparently, the more belly fat you have, the less brain volume and a higher risk for dementia later in life. Researchers at Providence St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California say overactive and inflamed fat cells send signals to the brain to downsize. They say it's important to keep belly fat to a minimum and to consider whether the foods you choose are nourishing your brain, as well as your body.
