Exercise now to reduce dementia risk later in life
from Everyday Health
Here's one powerful reason to go to the gym today: Your level of cardiovascular fitness now might lower your risk for dementia later in life, researchers from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center report in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Between 1970 and 2009, researchers at a community health center gave treadmill tests to more than 19,000 generally healthy, nonelderly adults. The participants who performed the best on treadmill tests were the least likely to experience any type of dementia after age 65.
