New news about Alzheimer's: lowering your risk!!



A new study indicates that normal everyday activity helps reduce the risk of Alzheimer's.


Yes, exercise is good – but so are more of the everyday activities we engage in…


Cleaning house and doing yardwork are taking on new importance. A higher level of physical activity — not just exercising — is linked to a reduced risk of developing Alzheimer's disease even in people over 80, suggests research published Wednesday in the journal Neurology.


I'm sure this is why having a pet keeps people healthy – not only do they have something to care for, they have to feed and walk the dog and feed the cat and change the litter…all require some moving!



So get out there and garden, walk, and clean to keep your brain keeping on!!
