A new study suggests that exercising for just 10 minutes at least twice a week can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
The researchers examined the health records of 250,000 people diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment.
People with mild cognitive impairment experience more memory and thinking problems than is normal for their age.
In comparison to the general population, these people are more than 10 times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease.
However, those who did moderate physical activity for 10 minutes twice a week had an 18% lower risk of developing the disease.
Our findings indicate that regular physical activity may protect against the conversion of mild cognitive impairment to Alzheimer’s disease, Dr. Hanna Cho, Yonsei University College of Medicine
