Eating Too Much May Double Risk of Memory Loss

A new study from Mayo Clinic supports the idea that "what's good for your heart is good for your brain." The study suggests that eating too much may double the risk for memory loss in people age 70 and older. Study author Yonas E. Geda, M.D., MSc, associate professor of neurology and psychiatry with Mayo Clinic in Arizona noted that 2,143 calories per day may double the risk of memory loss according to the study.
