A brain is a terrible thing to waste

Obesity affects almost every organ system.

Obese elders have smaller brains than thinner folks.  Some of this appears to be genetic (1 gene associated with both greater weight and smaller brains).  This is true if they appear normal, or have Alzheimer’s or mild cognitive impairment.

Keep your body smaller if you want a bigger brain!
