Good advice. I love exercising because I feel so much better. I would like to live as long as the Lord give me and able to take care of myself.

Interesting. Of course correlation is not the same as cause and effect; maybe people prone to developing dementia are also prone to be couch potatoes? In any case; I won't take any chances. I love martial arts and will continue as long as I can.

Jack LaLanne is 95 now and works out 2 hours every single day doing weight training and swimming, and he is SO sharp mentally. I certainly believe this article.

I take care of a elderly friend, she is 80 years old and her mind its ok buy her body it is really gone she lost 50 pounds and she has no muscle, she can hardly walk , i do her laundry cook meals for her and give her a bath. When I go to her house and I leave no matter what time it is or how tired i am, i go home and spend and hour or so exercising so I don't become so depended it on other people to do my activities when I am older. Not only that but I want to still have a healthy life and be able to do my own things.

ruth I just lost my mother in November to dementia /cancer and it is so so awful watching a someone suffer this disease. My sister and I took care of Mom for 3 years , viewing her decline was awful she would beg me to take her home, she was home we went to her home an took turns staying. It was so hearbreaking to not be able to help her understand

I love exercise now, and knowing that it may prevent dementia is a plus! I am older than the average student, in school full time, and have a 4.0 grade point average. In my family, on both sides, we also live a long time (into our 90s). I want to do that in a healthy way, and able to think!
