Exercise May Protect the Older Brain from "Silent Strokes"
Catharine Paddock, PhD
people to engage in moderate-to-intense exercise may protect their brains from
small lesions also known as "silent strokes," according
to a new study that appeared online in the journal Neurology this week.
However, the study did not find this benefit in people on Medicaid or with no health insurance, implying that a life of hardship erodes it.
National Stroke Association’s mission is to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by developing compelling education and programs focused on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support for all impacted by stroke.
