The Greater Your Weight, The Lower Your Iq

Recommended Posts

It is bad for your blood pressure, knocks years off your life and is a strain on your heart. Now scientists have discovered that gaining weight lowers your intelligence.


The new five-year study of more than 2,200 adults claims to have found a link between obesity and the decline in a person's cognitive function. The research involved men and women aged between 32 and 62 taking four mental ability tests that were then repeated five years later.



The fatter subjects also showed a higher rate of cognitive decline when they were retested five years later: their recall dropped to 37.5 per cent, whereas those with a healthy weight retained their level of recall.
