I appreciate INSIGHT62's comment and I like the way exercise helps me feel today, too! I agree that it is a LIFEstyle. My mother had severe dementia but died of cancer at 67. She exercised daily and walked daily from when I was in my teens into her late 40's. Gradually, she started not being able to find her way home. Because of my mom's example, I was riding a bike 20 miles and rollerskating every week for most of my teen years and into my young adult life. Report
Regular exercise has helped me have a positive attitude and feel more energetic. I don't know if it will ward off dementia in my elderly years, but I sure like how it makes me feel today. It's a lifestyle. Report
My heart breaks for those dealing with dementia, whether they themselves have it or if caring for a loved one. Report
Let's all get moving! Report
My mom has dementia. I had to have her declared incompetent after a neighbor told me she wasn't acting rationally. The next day, I learned from another person that my mom had been to their house skiing for a gun so she could kill my dad. Why they never warned me is beyond belief.

She has been in a nursing home since. Mostly under control with meds but she still has periods of severe breakdowns where ill get called in to try to calm her.

So, keep an eye on elderly relatives and neighbors...it could save someone's life. I am so thankful I was able to do something before my dad was fatally harmed. I later learned from him that he was scared of her. He never told...he was 91 and mostly blind and depended on her to drive him places. Report
My Mother has dementia and it is sad to watch her. She is not the same person a few years ago. I workout six days a week I have already lost 28 pounds so far. I watch what I eat everyday I believe a healthier lifestyle is the way to go. Report

I exercise six days a week and realized that it helped both mind and body. But 2.5 times as likely to get dementia? Wow. What an incentive to keep doing it! Report
I am running FROM ALZ. I started running and keep running to minimize my chances of getting ALZ, like my mother, her sister and my great grandmother. Report
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. Report

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. Report
