Sometimes a meal or a dessert is so delicious it’s nearly impossible to put down. You reach for the fridge for seconds, thirds and before you know it you have eaten the entire cake. While this isn’t so bad to do every once in a while, many people are overeating on a regular basis. This is very much what is to blame for the country’s obesity problem.
However, new research suggests overeating does not only cause someone to gain weight, it can also increase memory loss. In fact, it can double the risk of memory loss. These findings will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 64th Annual Meeting this coming April.
The researchers found that people over the age of 70 who consumed between 2,100 and 6,000 calories were twice as likely to suffer from mild cognitive impairment (MCI).
“Cutting calories and eating foods that make up a healthy diet may be a simpler way to prevent memory loss as we age,” said Yonas E. Geda, MD, the study author.
