An “apple a day keeps the doctor away”, but we think dancing, or any kind of movement, works even better!
The results of an “Einstein Aging Study“, summarized in the June 19, 2003 New England Journal of Medicine, indicated that dancing helps prevent dementia. The researchers found a significant association between dancing and the risk of dementia. The amazing 76 percent risk reduction from frequent participation in ballroom dancing by 130 avid dancers was the highest score of all hobbies and physical activities measured in the study.
Dancing not only helps you get fit, make friends, but it can even help your brain. And you never know when you start something, how many people you will influence. So don’t just sit there, Toronto, Dance!
