A recent study published by the prestigious Mayo Clinic suggests that the # 1 preventative factor against Alzheimer’s is physical activity. These findings are specific to Americans, whose current levels of physical activity, in general, are far lower than necessary to maintain health.
A healthy lifestyle is a proative approach to health rather than reactive. Reactive means that something has already gone wrong. For families, schools, and other establishemnts, now is certainly the time to establish physical activity as a cornerstone of programming and daily life.
