People in their early 40s who had a high amount of flab in two different body locations were much more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease more than 25 years later than those with smaller amounts, according to the latest study linking obesity and dementia. The research is the first to look at how fat distribution around the body during midlife is associated with Alzheimer's risk. It also advances the understanding that fat is not just inert tissue, but rather is a cell type that can secrete substances that can be harmful to the brain.
