Obesity in Middle Age Raises Dementia Risk

Uh oh. There's a Reuters story out of London about how obesity in middle age can increase the risk of future dimentia. Looks like yet another reason for me to work on getting rid of the, er, excess baggage around the waist line.

This story doesn't address it, but I wonder if obesity itself is the risk factor for dimentia, or if it is merely an indicator of a larger chain of risks and poor overall health habits.

Here's the link to the story:Obesity in Middle Age Raises Dementia Risk - Study - Yahoo! News
