Study shows regular exercise can reduce risk of Alzheimer's
A recent study has shown that people who are susceptible to Alzheimer's can reduce their risk through regular exercise.
The study was published in the January issue of Archive of Neurology. Researchers have found that individuals with gene APOE-4, which is responsible for the development of the disease, who exercised regularly over a decade were five to 10 times less likely to develop brain plaque associated with Alzheimer's.
"We've known for a long time that physical activity is one of the most effective ways to prevent Alzheimer's, as well as dementia in general," Sara Oliver, CPT, owner of Bay Area TX Adventure Boot Camp, said in a press release. "However, this new research demonstrates that even if you are genetically predisposed to developing this disease, you can take steps to prevent it."
