Dementia: Study suggests 'leisurely' exercise could cut the risk of dementia by almost 40%


Men in the top 25 percent – in terms of the amount of leisure-time exercise they carried out – were 37 percent less likely to have dementia three years after being surveyed.

This association was consistent even after other risk factors such as smoking status, alcohol intake and BMI were accounted for.

Nine years after being surveyed, the more active men were 28 percent less likely to have a dementia diagnosis compared to the least active.

However, a similar protective effect was not observed for women in the study.
