Women be aware, a study has revealed that weight formation that is to say Obesity will lead you to forget your memory.
The test were conducted by US Scientist on 8,745 women who were aged between 65-79 year old, and based on their mark the conclusion has been derived.
Test scores dropped by a point for every one-point increase in body mass index (BMI), a standard measurement based on weight and height, Daily Mail reported citing a report published in the Journal of the American Geriatric Society.
Being overweight was generally associated with reduced memory and brain function. The experts suspect this is because of the type of fat deposited around the hips.
‘Obesity is bad, but its effects are worse depending on where the fat is located,’ said study leader Diana Kerwin, from Northwestern University in Chicago.
Fat cells release immune system signalling molecules called cytokines that may affect the brain, the researchers said.
Different kinds of fat are known to release different cytokines that have various effects on blood fats, blood pressure and the way the body responds to insulin.
‘We need to find out if one kind of fat is more detrimental than the other, and how it affects brain function,’ said Kerwin.
‘The fat may contribute to the formation of plaques (brain deposits) associated with Alzheimer’s disease or a restricted blood flow to the brain.’
She added: ‘This study tells us if we have a woman in our office, and we know from her waist-to-hip ratio that she’s carrying excess fat on her hips, we might be more aggressive with weight loss. We can’t change where your fat is located, but having less of it is better.’
Personal Note on this subject:
I think the test should have been conducted on women on the age group between 30- 50 years. Common research dude, the people whom you have tested are aged group 65 to 79 years. During this age, memory loss are bound to happen. This is nature man.
The next time try to test some younger man or woman and then we will definitely agree you on this subject!!
