Annals of Internal Medicine - Editorial
Dr. Mary Sano, professor of psychiatry and director of Alzheimer's disease research at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, wrote that the study showing exercise at midlife may help stave off dementia adds to the "tidal wave of evidence" that physical fitness could bring about benefits across many different areas of health. "Unfortunately, adherence to exercise regimens is notoriously difficult," she wrote. Sano argues that people are most likely to exercise in the face of health issues, and a healthy person may ignore such warnings from doctors.
