Regular Exercise Lowers Risk for Dementia

Regular physical activity decreases the odds of dementia.

In the U.S. the total cost of caring for a person with dementia is $287,000, which is 57% higher than caring for a patient with any other disease. Sadly, there is no effective treatment for dementia. However, the Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Survey has revealed that people who regularly exercised had almost 50% lower odds of developing dementia than those who did not exercise regularly.

PositiveTip: Choose daily regular exercise to reduce your odds of dementia and other health risks.
