It shocks me how many people will pop over-the-counter pills blindly without safety even crossing their minds. It’s a common belief that if something makes it onto a health food store shelf or is natural, it must be safe, but in fact, this is part of the naturalistic fallacy. Plants and other naturally-occurring substances can be poisonous. They can also be beneficial or neutral in low doses but harmful in a high dose. Individual tolerance may vary as well, as some people have allergies, take meds or have medical conditions.

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.
