Obesity can foster the emergence of Alzheimer's

Obesity increases the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, dementia shape, so that there is a disturbance function of tau protein, the results of a French survey.

Protein tau affects the occurrence of degenerative diseases, reported today the French media. Tau plays an important role in the proper functioning of neurons.

When it comes to the dysfunction of the protein, forming a cellular deposits, amyloid tiles, which interfere with the activity of neuronal cells.

deposits, thus, encourage the development of neuro degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.
A group of French scientists from Lila came to explain the connection between obesity and Alzheimer doing the testing on young transgenic mice in which the five months given food with a lot of fat. These transgenic mice have had the ability to evolve neuro degenerative associated protein tau.
Due to the consumption of fatty foods, mice were gradually fattening of them, and when there has been a difficult pathologies related to the memory, and the modification of the protein tau.
