Indianapolis, Indiana – Working out could cut the risk of dying from dementia-related causes, according to a recent study from the American College of Sports Medicine in Indianapolis.
The study, published in the February edition of Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, included 14,811 females and 45,078 males between the ages of 20 and 88. Subjects were given baseline examinations, including medical histories, health and demographic questionnaires, and blood tests, along with maximal exercise tests. Subjects were placed into low fitness, middle fitness, and high fitness groups based on their fitness test performance.
After an average of 17 years, there were 4,047 subject deaths, 164 of which were attributed to dementia. Of these 164 deaths, 123 were from those in the least fit category, 23 were from those in the moderately fit category, and 18 were from the high-fitness group.
“The results of this study match up with a lot of recent findings that indicate exercise has a wide variety of benefits and protective effects for all age groups, including the elderly,” said Roger Parco, owner of health-focused website DietPlanstoLose.com. “Personally, I recommend low-impact exercise for elderly people, such as that provided by the Bowflex TC20 TreadClimber. This exercise machine provides a solid workout while still being easy on the knees, hips, and ankle joints.”
