researchers studied activity levels of more than four- hundred older adults and then studied their brains after death. they found even though most people had age-related brain changes -- those who had more physical activity had better cognition levels. over the twenty-year period of the study -- researchers also found the protection that exercise provided against brain changes was there for both those with normal cognition -- and those with dementia. while experts may not yet know why exercise seems to have a protective effect on the brain, doctors say one thing is for sure getting more activity certainly can't hurt. new guidelines from the world health organization also say, not smoking -- limiting alcohol -- eating a balanced diet -- and managing blood pressure and weight can help reduce the risk of brain decline.
