Exercise Can Affect Thinking

It is not just formal exercise that reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers in Chicago have found that ordinary activities, such as housework, walking, and gardening, may reduce the risk of cognitive impairment. People in the bottom 10% of total physical activity were more than twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s when compared to the most active 10%. This study involved 716 people with an average age of 82.
