Finally, here's a little sanity from the medical establishment. A new study further proves that weight loss is harmful to your health. The latest revelation is that it causes dementia:
The article goes into detail, but the pertinent fact is stated right away:
"New York - Women losing weight could develop dementia in the future, warned a US study.

It's just such a shame that it takes a grave medical revelation like this to show the blinkered medical profession what's obvious to anyone with a little common sense.
A BBC article about the same study adds other important details,
and it's remarkable to find medical researchers finally talking about ways to prevent
weight loss, not initiate it:
"Lead researcher Dr David Knopman said: "The weight of those women who developed dementia was drifting downward many years before the onset of symptoms.
"We believe that the brain disease began to interfere somehow with maintenance of body weight, long before it affected memory and thinking."...
The UK authors of this study, Dr Robert Stewart and colleagues from the Institute of Psychiatry, London, said: "An important consideration arising from research in this area is the extent to which weight loss may be prevented or minimised..."
