(SOT-Dr. Mony de Leon/NYU School of Medicine)

"exercising has been shown for many years to have many beneficial effects for the body."
THE FIRST STUDY LOOKED AT WALKING AND THE RISK OF DEMENTIA IN MEN. MEN WHO WALKED OVER 2 MILES A DAY HAD HALF THE RISK OF DEVELOPING THE DISEASE COMPARED TO THOSE WHO HARDLY WALKED. A SIMILAR STUDY WAS DONE ON WOMEN AND MENTAL FUNCTION. THOSE WHO WALKED AT LEAST AN HOUR AND A HALF A WEEK SCORED HIGHER ON COGNITIVE MEMORY TESTS THAN WOMEN WHO ONLY WALKED 45 MINUTES A WEEK. WHY?... IT'S BELIEVED EXERCISE HELPS THE BODY WHICH IN TURN HELPS THE MIND... BUT SCIENTISTS AREN'T SURE EXACTLY HOW.
