Still more reasons to take off the pounds.
A new study, led by John Gunstad of Kent State University, tested subjects before and after undergoing weight loss surgery. The results showed weight loss improved concentration and overall cognitive ability.
Gunstad said the more work needs to be done to identify what from obesity is causing the brain damage, what causes the brain to improve after surgery, and can behavioral weight loss produce the same changes in the brain as surgery.
No matter, with obesity contributing to so many health ailments, it’s best to shed the extra pounds for a healthier tomorrow.
