While dementia affects 6-10% of persons 65 years or older, industrialized countries have witnessed an alarming rise in obesity. Obesity affects over 500 million people worldwide, and has far reached negative health effects.

Current status of research: Researchers investigated the relationship between body mass index (BMI), age and oxidative stress. In this… Expand
