Diet and Exercise Reduce Alzheimer's Risk

Contributed by: Dennis Fortier, President, Medical Care Corporation

We all know this intuitively but it bears repeating. Another study, this one out of Columbia University and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, has demonstrated the benefits of diet and exercise in mitigating the risks for Alzheimer's disease.

This was a massive study on 1,880 people spanning 14 years and the results were clear. Those subjects who most closely adhered to the recommended Mediterranean diet reduced their risk by 40% and those with the most regular exercise regimens reduced their risk by 33%.

Everyone is busy and life is hectic but there is really no legitimate excuse for not taking care of your brain and your heart through a sensible diet and some form of regular physical exercise. Please share this message at every opportunity.

A better understanding and more awareness of Alzheimer's related issues can impact personal health decisions and generate significant impact across a population of aging individuals. Please use the share button below to spread this educational message as widely as possible.
