another new study showing the benefits of exercise on memory - from the NY Times

we already know that exercise can remodel the brain, positively affect thinking, and slow the progression of dementia. now a new study has identified the hormone irisin, which is released during exercise, can lessen brain damage and memory loss in dementia and alzheimers. the study was done on mice but can likely be applied to humans as well.

so do your yoga, do your pilates, go dancing, take a walk, be active!
