Swedish researchers looked at 8,534 twins over the age of 65. Thirty percent of those studied were overweight or obese. The risk of dementia was almost double in those who were overweight vs. those of normal weight. Alarmingly, those who were obese had almost a fourfold increase in risk.This research supports many studies in the last few years that associate both being overweight and metabolic syndrome with increased risk of dementias.
