Pear-Shaped & Older. Recipe for Memory Loss?

According to new research from Northwestern Medicine, women who carry excess weight around their hips, a.k.a. pear shaped women, are likely to experience more memory loss than their apple-shaped counterparts.
8,475 Cognitively Normal Women Studied
The Women’s Health Initiative hormone trials is the first in the United States to link obesity to reduced memory and connect it to body shape. 8,475 cognitively normal women, post-menopausal women were studied and the verdict is in.
Extra added weight can have a detrimental affect on your memory. For every one point increase in a women’s Body Mass Index (BMI), her memory score dropped by 1 point.
Pear Shape vs. Apple Shape
The type of fat deposited around the hips is different than the fat deposited around the waist. Different fats release different cytokines (hormones), which have different effects on inflammation, lips, insulin resistance and blood pressure. The fat that is deposited around the hips may contribute to formation of plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease or a restricted blood flow to the brain.
Food for Thought
You may have heard that carrying excess fat in your mid-section and chest (apple shape) can increase heart disease. There are so many serious health issues that stem from obesity. Consider adding healthy foods to your day. Move towards health.
Spread the word … NOT the icing!
