Belly Fat Linked to Smaller Brains
Well, this can't be good news for most. According to Newsweek.com, a team studied close to ten thousand people and found that those rated as obese had a smaller gray area in their brains.
I guess this explains a lot. I seem to be getting fatter and dumber every day. This whole study is based on body fat, BMI along with an individual's height and weight. I wonder who actually takes part in these studies.
As if overweight people didn't have enough problems. Have ever checked out one of those charts at the doctor's office? The ones that tell you how much you should weigh according to your height? I'm just about 6 feet tall and according to these charts, I should weigh about 160. Never going to happen.
These researchers did say that their study was not absolute, so I'm guessing they just put it out to give us just something else to worry about.
So, in the meantime, I'll just continue to get fatter and dumber. My dad always said, when you have a good tool you should build a shed over it.
