The Easiest Way to Avoid Alzheimer’s
Alzheimer’s disease is becoming an epidemic among seniors.
Big Pharma has thrown drug after drug at the problem… and they’ve all failed.
So you’d think the solution to beating Alzheimer’s must be really complicated, right?
New research has just shown a powerful way to slash your risk of ever getting Alzheimer’s.
And it’s a lot easier than you’d ever imagine.
One simple action has already been linked to heart disease, diabetes, and even cancer.
Now, research shows its negative impact on your brain as well.
What is this horrible lifestyle habit?
Sitting too long!
Turns out that people who have a “sedentary lifestyle” have SMALLER BRAINS.
In a study published in PLOS ONE, participants were quizzed about their activity levels.
Then they underwent an MRI to look at the MTL – the medial temporal lobe – one of the brain areas involved in making new memories.
The MRIs revealed that the people who sat the most had a thinner MTL—a factor that has been shown to be a precursor for cognitive decline and dementia.
On the other hand, previous research has shown that physical activity is connected to high brain volume in areas of the brain critical for memories.
If you think a quick walk around the block will help…don’t be so sure.
The researchers found that the loss of brain matter still existed even if people who sat most of the day went for regular walks or bicycle rides.
In other words, there are no quick fixes for a lazy lifestyle. You can’t sit around all day watching TV and then think that a little exercise will magically make everything better.
Thy key is to be more active throughout the day. Walk to the mailbox to get the mail. Do some gardening. Take up a hobby like pickleball or golf or yoga. Take the grandkids to a playground.
Whatever it is that interests you—and that you are able to do—DO IT!
You’ll not only feel better overall, you’ll be giving your brain the boost it needs to help keep dementia from ever being an issue.
To a brighter day,
