Dancing Cuts Altzheimer Risk by 76%

Recommended Posts

Did anyone see the Reuters article in today's papers? Here's a link to it from yahoo:

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor...h_alzheimers_dc

The article was listing the kinds of activities that have been proven to decrease the risk of getting Altzheimers. The usual activities were named: crossword puzzles, playing a musical instrument, reading, but then the article stated that no physical activity other than dance had similar results.

With the exception of dancing, physical activity did not decrease the risk. Among the 25 people who danced frequently, their chance of developing dementia was 76 percent lower.

No, grace, as far as I know Ms. MacLaine does not have Alzheimers but she does seem to believe in "past lives" and some more unusual things of that nature. ;)
