Exercise for Alzheimer’s disease

Progression of Alzheimer’s disease symptoms may be slowed by exercise, according to a study reported at the 2nd International Conference on Physical Activity, Aging, and Sports at West Point, New York. Certain aspects of brain function may be retained longer by exercise. Dr. Ronald M. Lawrence, assistant clinical professor of the UCLA School of Medicine in Los Angeles, concluded that walking for 30 to 35 minutes daily is the best exercise program for elderly persons.
