Leading Sedentary Life Connected to the Higher Risk of Developing Dementia
A new Canadian study suggests that leading a lazy lifestyle without exercising or active recreation connected to the higher risk of developing dementia, as people are genetically predisposed to this disease.
In the study, the researchers analyzed data of more than 1,600 people aged 65 and older who led a sedentary life. And they seemed to have the same risk of developing the condition as they all carried the apolipoprotein E gene mutation. This gene is known to increase the risk of developing dementia.
Jennifer Heisz, the lead researcher and an assistant professor in the department of kinesiology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, says: “Being inactive may completely negate the protective effects of a healthy set of genes.” However Heisz adds that how exercise may reduce the risk for dementia isn’t known at the present moment.
