Being more physically active and adhering to a Mediterranean diet appears to be associated with reduced Alzheimer’s risk.
I wrote previously about how exercise in a gym has an immediate positive effect on my mother's behavior and attitude.
There are many articles here on the Alzheimer's Reading Room about the importance of a healthy diet, and how it could lower the risk of Alzheimer's in older age.
I also wrote a few times about how aMediterranean-type diet can help slow cognitive decline.
Now for the first time, a new research study has studied the combination of exercise and the Mediterranean diet -- the results are encouraging.
