Now we have one more reason to lose weight - a better memory-Believe it or not!!
This is interesting and gives reason for thinking about weight in a different way, it is not the gospel of truth, however it is worth consideration.
We already know that being overweight can cause a truckload of health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and strokes.
There’s new evidence that being obese can mess with your brain, causing serious memory loss.
There’s also hope that losing weight can help repair the damage.
The study was conducted at Kent State University and led by John Gunstad, an assistant professor of psychology.
Aware of previous studies linking obesity to memory loss, Gunstad and his team wanted to find out if losing weight could reverse the problem.
Another study reported by Diana Kerwin, the lead author of the study shown below could indicate similar results.
