Leipzig study on the connection between obesity and dementia

Over five research units and 10,000 randomly selected participants are involved in the LIFE adult study. One of the findings, i.e. that unemployment increases the risk of depression, is less surprising. Up to now, a possible connection between obesity and dementia was more controversial. And there is no certainty in this respect yet. The researchers of the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig have found that obesity reflects changes in the appetite-regulating brain region. It is not clear whether obesity is affecting the brain or whether the cause of obesity already exists in the brain.
