Being overweight affects the brain

A diet high in saturated fats and sugars affects your blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels. It also affects the parts of the brain that are important to memory.

  • A 2015 study found obese children performed worse on memory tasks than children who weren't overweight.
  • Another study found obese people have less white matter in their brains than their lean peers - as if their brains were ten years older.
  • A recent study supports one prominent theory that high body mass is linked to inflammation, which affects the brain.
