More Evidence that Walking is Good for the Brain

Contributed by: Dennis Fortier, President, Medical Care Corporation

For the second time in as many months, a major study has shown that a regular walk leads to better brain health.

We recently posted this analysis of data from the Cardiovascular Health Study - Cognition Study showing that regular walking over a period of years preserved brain volume. Now, further analysis of the same data set was presented at the Radiological Society of North America showing that cognition was preserved among walkers at a significantly better level than among a sedentary group.

The data are compelling; a regular daily walk is good for you.
