Physical activity prevents senility!

Physical activity lowers memory loss

Mon, 24 Dec 2007 20:24:17

Researchers say physically active senior citizens who regularly take walks have a lower risk of developing memory loss and dementia.

According to an Italian study published in the journal of Neurology, moderate exercise in individuals aged 65 years and older greatly reduces the risk of vascular dementia, the second most common type of dementia after Alzheimer's disease.

A four-year follow up on more than 700 elderly individuals show that those who regularly do activities such as walking, gardening and house work enjoy a better memory and cognition.

Researchers claim physical activity may improve the brain's blood flow and lower the risk of brain artery disease.
