FAT AND STUPID?

Whoa, slow down there don’t be calling the politically correct police on
me just yet. Hear me out.

But you do gotta admit the title got your attention.

A new study by UCLA professor Paul Thompson shows obese people have 8
percent less brain tissue than normal-weight individuals! Their brains look 16 years
older than the brains of lean individuals, researchers report.

Now those just overweight have 4 percent less brain tissue and their brains appear
to have aged prematurely by 8 years. 65% of the United States is consideredoverweight!
Maybe this is why you scratch your head and wonder where common sense went.

The results represent “severe brain degeneration,” reports Thompson. Now I can say “Fat
and Stupid:!

Thompson states “That’s a big loss of tissue and it depletes your cognitive reserves,
putting you at much greater risk of Alzheimer’s and other diseases that attack the brain.”
“But you can greatly reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s, if you can eat healthily and keep your
weight under control.” (Novel idea there.)

Hey like I have always said take care of the insides and the outsides will go along for the ride.

We know obesity brings negative health effects, including increased risk of heart disease,
Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and some cancers. It’s also been shown to reduce sexual activity.
Bummer for you wannabe Romeos. So not only are you stupid for getting obese you will become
even stupider and not realize that you’re killing yourself. Quite a paradox you think.

(Reminds me of my uncle who wanted to have himself committed but the mental hospital said
if you know you are crazy you aren’t really crazy because you recognize the fact you are. *true
story)

More than 300 million worldwide are now classified as obese, according to the World Health
Organization. Another billion are overweight. That’s a lot of diminished brains there. The main
cause, experts say: bad diet, including an increased reliance on highly processed foods. Can we
say drive thru mania?

Obese people had lost brain tissue in the frontal and temporal lobes, areas of the brain critical
for planning and memory, and in the anterior cingulate gyrus (attention and executive functions), hippocampus (long-term memory) and basal ganglia (movement).
Overweight people showed brain loss in the basal ganglia, the corona radiata, white matter comprised
of axons, and the parietal lobe (sensory lobe).

The brains of obese people looked 16 years older than the brains of those who were lean, and in
overweight people looked 8 years older,” Thompson said.

I guess if diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer and even low libido don’t make you
think about losing weight than maybe you have already lost that 8% of your brain!

Don’t hate the messenger!!! I write this out of love.
