So much for exercise

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2018/05/16/surprising-study-suggests-exercise-may-make-dementia-worse/

"The new trial involved 494 people with an average age of 77 years who lived in England and all suffered from mild to moderate dementia.

The participants were assigned to a supervised exercise and support programme or usual care.

The programme consisted of 60-90 minute group sessions in a gym twice a week for four months, plus home exercises for one additional hour each week with ongoing support.

All were tested using the Alzheimer’s disease assessment score at the beginning of the study and then at six and 12 months.

After taking account of potentially influential factors, the researchers found that cognitive impairment declined over the 12-month follow-up in both groups."

Damned if you do and damned if you don't.
My advice don't believe every research article cause later their disputed..

Interesting article, but this sentence states the opposite:

"After taking account of potentially influential factors, the researchers found that cognitive impairment declined over the 12-month follow-up in both groups."
