Exercise May Help People At-Risk for Alzheimer’s

Time for many of us to lace up our sneakers and head out for a brisk walk.

Researchers found that people who are genetically susceptible to Alzheimer’s may be able to lower their chances of developing the disease by exercising.

The study, published in the Archives of Neurology, found that patients who carry the Alzheimer’s gene APOE-4, but led an active lifestyle, had fewer amyloid protein deposits in the brain.

These deposits are associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
