Pear Shaped or Apple Shaped?

Did you know the location of body fat may predict whether or not your brain is affected by the extra weight you carry?  A recent study found just that!

Researchers from Northwestern Medicine found that women who carried excess weight around their hips (pear shape) versus carrying weight around the abdomen (apple shape) were more apt to memory loss and cognitive decline.  The general school of thought in conventional medicine has been that “apple” shapes are more cause for concern since this body shape has been linked to heart disease.  However, we now know that the body fat cells around the hips secrete a hormone (cytokine) that is pro-inflammatory to the brain.  To read this article click here.
