Brain shrink for less walking

brain shrink
According to research from a number researchers from the United States, that less walking may shrink the brain or more precisely if we are not running as far as 10 miles in one week can shrink the brain is often called dementia. Research conducted on 300 people in Pittsburgh, USA, who noted how far they walk each week's indicate, those who walked at least six miles or about 10 kilometers had fewer age-related brain shrink than those who less walking.

So Jogging is Healthy, at least try every morning to less walking for 30 minutes only, to avoid the disease of dementia or brain shrink, what is a dementia?,according to Kirk Erickson from the University Pittsburgh, USA, whose research appears in the journal Neurology "Depreciation is the size facts of the brain in late adulthood can lead to problems in memory. Our results should encourage drafted a good physical exercise for the elderly as a promising approach to preventing dementia and Alzheimer's disease ".

The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer's disease, the disease slowly kill depression in the brain cells. Erickson and his colleagues conducted a study to see if a lot of people on foot have better bargaining value to combat the disease. They conducted a study on 299 volunteers who are free of disease dementia and routinely record how far they less walking in a week. Nine years later, researchers took brain images of each volunteer to measure their brain shrink volume.

Activities such as walking have been shown to increase brain volume. After four more years, they re-do the testing to see if there are volunteers who experience cognitive impairment or dementia. They found that people who walk approximately six to nine miles or 10 miles-15 miles a week have a risk of memory impairment 50 percent less than those who less walking than that in a week. And more research needs to be done on the effects of exercise in people with dementia. However, in the absence of effective treatment for Alzheimer's, walking is probably the one thing you can do to help.

Currently there are no drugs that can stop the progression of Alzheimer's disease, which affects more than 26 million people in the world. But then it just went for a routine is to walk every morning for a minimum of 30 minutes, in addition to improving the health of the brain and improve memory, also with the way in the morning we will get a bonus in the form of vitamin D from the cool morning light. So it is enough to be one reason to do regular exercise at any age bracket for prevent brain shrink.
