Dr. Terry Simpson on aging and avoiding senility and Alzheimer's disease
As the nation grows older, we are more and more concerned about senility and Alzheimer's disease. So what can we do to prevent that? Well there's a few things we can do. We have seen a few things that people do right, like my 87 year old dad. Number one is exercise. Nothing crazy - but simple walking everyday will make a big difference in how you feel and studies certainly show that people that walk everyday have less of a risk for senility.
The second thing to do is lose weight. People who have weight issues tend to have more problems when it comes to senility. So there's a few simple healthy things that will make your life better now and make your life better as your hairs get a little greyer. Those things are a little bit of exercise, eating healthy, eating less, and losing weight. I'm Doctor Terry Simpson and that's your doctor's orders.
