New Orleans, Louisiana (WiredPRNews.com) — Being inactive increases the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, according to a recent research study. Consequently, an increased awareness to follow a healthy, physically active lifestyle has been reinforced by several researchers of the Alzheimer’s Association.
William Theis, vice president of the medical and scientific relations department for the Alzheimer’s Association, has stressed a liberal commitment to exercise as the only way out to ward off Alzheimer’s.
In the initial stage of Alzheimer’s, it has been medically found that cardio-respiratory balance is disturbed in the affected brain area. This calls for regular cardio respiratory wellness to be maintained to keep Alzheimer’s in check. It is only lately that the increased risk factor involved with Alzheimer’s is making people turn to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and incorporating exercises into their daily schedule. Several researchers of the Alzheimer’s Association have successfully carried out a series of research studies to understand the cause of Alzheimer’s and laid down certain remedial measures to do away with the disease.
Researchers are slowly trying to understand the role of physical activity and effectively use it as one of the sole means to attain an Alzheimer’s-free life. A sedentary lifestyle brings a lesser use of brain cells leading to an increased chance of the occurrence of Alzheimer’s as the disease is caused mainly due to reduced usage of brain matter. This is why importance is laid on an increased physical activity. That leads to increased brain activity in order to do away with Alzheimer’s.
The U.S Department of Health has stressed the importance of leading a physically active life, and charted the various ways to maintain a physically active life in order to do away with the dangers of Alzheimer’s disease.
