Benefits of exercise extend to Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients
Another study showing the positive benefits of exercise, this time as it relates to Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. This is very important research because as yet, there is no medication that has had a significant impact on this terrible disease.
As we are learning with this study, and others ones that are released almost weekly, the evidence is becoming more clear that an appropriate exercise program is vitally important for health and longevity. In fact, sitting all day at work, then coming home to sit at the dinner table, then sitting on the couch to watch TV is literally killing Americans.
