- Visceral fat, or fat that wraps around abdominal organs, is known to be a significant risk factor for heart disease and other health problems.
- A recent study now suggests that it may also be related to reduced blood flow to the brain, potentially leading to cognitive challenges.
- An increase in waist size of only 1.3 cm was associated with the same reduction in cerebral blood flow as seen with one year of advancing age.
