The team at Oxon Epidemiology and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine analysed medical records from 1,958,191 people aged 55, on average, for up to two decades.

Their most conservative analysis showed underweight people had a 39% greater risk of dementia compared with being a healthy weight.

But those who were overweight had an 18% reduction in dementia - and the figure was 24% for the obese.

And us skinny fuckers are more at risk which reminds me, where's my keys?

Conservative analysis shows that since most scientists can't afford food and, thus, are scrawny bishes....yeah, this makes sense.

In the study, normal weight range had noticeably less chance of dementia than skinny people but slightly more than overweight and obese people. But I haven't read the full study. I can only assume they have corrected for the greater death rate amongst flubs from fat related conditions.
