The New England Journal of Medicine conducted a 21-year study and found that dance alone can lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia in elderly people.
The result is truly remarkable
The biggest surprise is that almost none of the physical activities appear to show any added protection against developing dementia.
There was one exception in this study. Out of all the physical activities, the only one to provide protection against developing dementia was frequent dancing.
It showed that frequent dancing can help lower the risk of dementia by a massive 76 percent. The reason behind this is believed to be that dance involves the most mental effort out of all the physical activities that were included in the study.
