This is Your Brain Without Exercise

Dementia( right)

Did you know that every 70 seconds someone in the US develops dementia? ( No. I'm not being "Scroogy")

The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer's disease, which accounts for around 60% of all dementia.

Guess what has been linked to a reduced risk of Alzheimer's? Good job! Exercising on a regular basis.

Exercise increases blood flow to the brain, helps control blood glucose (sugar) levels, improves the body's immune and hormonal responses, and helps strengthen the spine.

So, eat your fruits and veggies, don't smoke, drink less alcohol, and EXERCISE. You may be able to reduce your risk of dementia by as much as 40%.

Help me out on this one. I'm not going to be able to look after EVERYONE.

Happy Holidays
