Want To Reduce Your Alzheimer's Risk By 50%? Here's How!

In the age of magic pills, complicated fixes, and technology for everything under the sun, it is refreshing to hear of simple solutions to complicated problems.  Since FotoDialer was created as a simple solution to a complicated problem, we are all about passing it on to you.  An article I recently found cited a recent study where they claimed doing a simple task can improve your memory and even ward off Alzheimer's.  For such a great benefit you might expect to hear you have to do some grand thing, but that is not the case.  So, what is this, "grand" thing?

Go for a walk!  Yes, according to the study, walking for 30 minutes a day could reduce your risk for Alzheimer's by 50%.  The article went on to say, "Even if you already have early signs of cognitive decline or Alzheimer's, walking 5 miles a week could put the skids on that."

So how does walking help?  Walking increases oxygen and blood flow to the neurons in your brain thus decreasing the brain shrinkage that occurs with age. 

So go out for a walk with your family, hike in the mountain, meet some new neighbors.  Just get out and walk!
