Exercise Improves Memory In Seniors
Exercise is one thing that is consistently good for one’s health. Exercise has been shown to decrease the risk of most major diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, strokes, obesity and diabetes. A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine “clearly support the continued encouragement of physical activity, even among the oldest age groups.” People even in their mid to late 80s can extend their life by a few years by getting four hours or more of exercise per week. Exercise showed improvements even for previously sedentary 85-year-olds, because their three-year survival rate was double that of inactive 85-year-olds.
