Exercise and Dementia

Recent research says that keeping fit especially in middle age reduces the risk of dementia.

20,000 adults were looked at mostly in their 40s and 50s using a treadmill exercise. Up to 9% went on to develop dementia and 36% of the most fit were less likely to go onto develop dementia than those with a lower fitness level.
