A new study suggests overeating may double the risk for memory loss, or mild cognitive impairment (MCI), among people age 70 and older… "We observed a dose-response pattern which simply means; the higher the amount of calories consumed each day, the higher the risk of MCI," study author Dr. Yonas E. Geda, associate professor of neurology and psychiatry at the Mayo Clinic, said in a written statement.
