Hard Evidence We Can Slow Alzheimer’s By Exercising the Mind and Body

 – July 17, 2014  –– 

Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most feared diagnoses among patients. It destroys people’s minds, their personalities, and the very essence of who they are. And once the disease has been diagnosed, there is nothing modern medicine can do to stop it. “For the past few years, physical exercise has been as good or better than anything that we can recommend for people with or at risk for cognitive decline. Would that we had a pill as good as that but we do not,” said Samuel Gandy, MD, PhD, Professor of Alzheimer's Disease Research, Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry, Associate Director of Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, and Chairman Emeritus of the National Medical and Scientific Advisory Council of the Alzheimer's Association.
