A study was done by the journal Neurobiology of Aging actually took brain scans of overweight and slim people, compared them, and found the overweight people’s brains showed signs of being 10 years older (lesser white matter). The buildup of fatty tissue causes inflammatory compounds called cytokines to release alongside inflammatory hormones like leptin. Researchers believe this may partially explain the reason behind obesity causing such extreme signs of aging.

However, despite the loss of white matter, overweight people did not appear to have lost any cognitive capabilities — meaning they had no problem thinking like everyone else. They also performed just as well as lean people of the same age on IQ tests.

However, if you are overweight, do not jump for joy as yet! It is best to start searching for solutions to a healthier and a lean body to prevent further possible damage to the body system.
