According to a study published by the British newspaper "Daily Mail", it was found that those who have excess weight in the abdomen and have a family history of Alzheimer's disease have less brain function.

Researchers believe that high fat deposits in the pancreas and liver may lead to an increased risk of dementia.

The researchers studied 204 healthy middle-aged people with a family history of Alzheimer's disease.

They found that men with a high percentage of abdominal fat had poorer cognitive function.

Previous studies have shown that men with a higher BMI are more likely to develop dementia.

Excess fat that accumulates around the torso is called visceral fat, and it contributes to an undesirable body shape.
