Preventing Alzheimer’s Middle-aged people who exercised two times a week were 60% less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease, according to a new study. The study followed 1,500 people for 21 years and looked for signs of dementia. The most popular forms of exercise were walking and cycling. People with a genetic predisposition for the disease benefited the most. Exercise may reduce risk by improving both blood flow to the brain and the transmission of brain signals. Another study found that taking vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid may help prevent brain shrinkage, which is associated with cognitive decline.
