Sleep disorders may raise risk of Alzheimer's, new research shows
from The Washington Post
Sleep disturbances such as apnea may increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease, while moderate exercise in middle age and mentally stimulating games, such as crossword puzzles, may prevent the onset of the dementia-causing disease, according to new research. The findings bolster previous studies that suggest sleep plays a critical role in the aging brain's health, perhaps by allowing the body to cleanse itself of Alzheimer's-related compounds during down time.
