Obesity and Alzheimer’s
What does obesity and Alzheimer’s have to do with each other? We’ve known for a long time that obesity is linked to disease. Heart disease, certain cancers and autoimmune diseases like diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis are all illnesses caused by being overweight. But obesity can cause Alzheimer’s and dementia?
In recent years several studies have documented that being over weight or obese is directly related to Alzheimer’s and other dementia. In fact, Alzheimer’s has recently been called “heart disease of the brain.”

New Research Shows Higher BMI Causes Brain to Age More Quickly
Health I.Q., by Alexandra Marshall, August 9, 2016: The study analyzed digital 3-D brain images taken of 525 participants from ages 20-87 with the goal of comparing white matter, brain thickness and overall surface area. After extensive analysis, the team published a shocking conclusion: the brains of participants with BMI over 30 has a significantly reduced amount of white white matter similar to what would be expected in the brain of someone as much as 10 or 15 years older than the participants current physical age.
Why do we care about white matter?
Both deteriorating and damaged white matter have long been considered red flags for a significantly higher risk of Alzheimers and other serious degenerative brain conditions. And while it is also true that our brains do naturally shrink with age, this is the first study that found weight and BMI may directly lead to the speeding up of this aging and shrinking process.
