Gardening, Walking and moderate drinking reduce risk of dementia

Professor Leon Simons and colleagues from University of New South Wales have found that daily gardening, walking and moderate drink reduced the risk// of developing dementia.

Dementia is a progressive brain disease which leads to gradual loss of memory and daily activities leading to loss of reasoning, memory and learning due to presence of irregular knots in brain cells, though dementia is mostly occurs in old age dementia is not a normal part of ageing.

The study was conducted in 2,805 recruits with an average age of 60 years and the study was conducted over 16 years after which the researchers found 115 men and 170 women recruits developed dementia. The study found that the recruits who had a daily walk or did daily gardening and had moderate drinking of one to two glasses had a reduced incidence of dementia. The study did not show any correlation between gardening, walking and moderate drinking to development of dementia in women. Some of the risk factors associated with dementia were depression, aging, heart and lung problems. The researchers have published their work in the Medical Journal of Australia.
