Large Waist 'An Alzheimer's Risk'
« on: March 28, 2008, 07:28:27 AM »
A big waistline in your 40s could almost triple the threat of dementia in old age, according to US research.

Obesity is a known risk factor for Alzheimer's, but scientists found even those of normal weight were more at risk if they had a large waist.

However, the study of 6,500 people, published in the journal Neurology, found obesity and bulging stomach was still the most dangerous combination.

An obesity expert said waist size was a good guide to future health problems.
