fat causes dementia?

a recent study published in the March edition of Neurology, involving over 6,500 participants monitored for an average of 36 years found that people with normal body weight, but with extra fat stored around the abdominal area were 89% more likely to have dementia compared to people with normal body weight and low abdominal fat. The risk increased among overweight and obese people with high abdominal fat measurements.

Yet again, it is made clear that early action is the key to long-term good health. Prevention is indeed better than cure and undoubtedly, the best time to start taking action to protect health for the long term is now!
