Dr. Ruderman: Study links higher body weight later in life to faster brain aging

(KUSI) – According to a new study there is an association between having a higher body mass and larger waist later in life, and a faster thinning of the cerebral cortex, which is a key characteristic of brain aging.

The Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami in Florida have been considering in a new study, whose results now feature in the journal Neurology.

This research indicates that there is a link between body mass index (BMI) later in life and the rate of cortical thinning in older age.

Good Morning San Diego medical expert Dr. Steven Ruderman discussed the study.
