may be helpful in reducing the affects of mild cognitive impairment (MCI).
A new report from Mayo Clinic has found that eating between 2,100 and 6,000
calories a day can have a detrimental impact on a person's memory.
"We observed a dose-response pattern which simply means; the higher the
amount of calories consumed each day, the higher the risk of MCI," said
study author Yonas Geda, from the clinical establishment and a member of the
American Academy of Neurology.
She explained that cutting calories and eating a healthy diet may be a simple
way of offsetting the problems associated with MCI as people age.
The study assessed more than 1,200 residents in Olmstead County, Minnesota and
found the odds of MCI doubled when patients ate a high-calorie diet.
Obesity is also a leading cause of many other health problems such as certain
types of cancer and diabetes, states the Department of Health.
