Aerobics may protect against Alzheimer’s disease

Researchers have found that regular aerobic exercise not only improves physical health but also improves cognitive functioning, which might protect against Alzheimer’s disease.

For the study, published in the journal Brain Plasticity, researchers investigated 23 cognitively normal, relatively young older adults with a family history or genetic risk for Alzheimer’s. All patients had a sedentary lifestyle.(Shutterstock)
