Overeating linked to memory loss among elderly

Posted on February 15th, 2012 by

US scientists say, People over 70 who consume between 2000 and 6000 calories a day are at much greater risk of "mild cognitive impairment," researchers from the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona, said today…"We observed a dose-response pattern, which simply means the higher the amount of calories consumed each day, the higher the risk of mild cognitive impairment," study author Dr Yonas Geda said. "Cutting calories and eating foods that make up a healthy diet may be a simpler way to prevent memory loss as we age."
