Los Angeles, CA – 3/13/2014—
There has been a recent push forincreasing activity in the teenage population, and with good reason. The earlier a person begins establishinghealthy habits, the better their overall health is throughout their life. But recently studies have revealed otherreasons it’s important to become active early on in life. There was a recent study from Sweden thatshowed higher risk of dementia development at age 60 in those who weren’tactive in their youth.
In their most recent study, datafrom 1.1 million young men showed that those with poor cardiovascular fitnesslevels were more likely to suffer from early onset dementia.
“Previous studies have shown thecorrelation between cardiovascular fitness and the risk of dementia in oldage. Now, for the first time, we canshow the increased risk also applies to early-onset dementia and itsprecursors,” advised Jenny Nyburg who headed the study.
The benefits physical fitness andactivity has on the brain are becoming more widely known thanks to mediaawareness about the topic. Physicalexercise increases nerve cell complexity, blood flow to the creative pathwaysin the brain, and can even help facilitate development of new nerve cells inthe adult brain. This strengthens ourmental functions as well as physiological movements.
Even something as little as 30minute walk each day, or a bike ride, or even changing from the elevator to thestairs at work can get a person started on increasing their physicalactivity. Aside from the preventativebenefits and mental support activity can offer, the health benefits – such asincreased cardiovascular function, prevention of diseases, and enhanced mood –would be enough to encourage youth to get active.
Instead of staying in and watchingthe latest shows or spending time on the internet, try engaging face to facewith a game of volleyball, enrollment in a “fun run,” or a walk around the citywith friends. This will not only provideinstant gratification, but will provide for long-term wellbeing benefits.
