I was beginning to have more "senior moments." I started cycling regularly. Not only did I eventually lose a few pounds, although slowly; but my mental acuity improved, too. I assumed it was just better circulation. Thanks for the link to the article.

Not enough exercise in my case.

Aren't there studies which show that exercise delays dementia?

Here's a couple:

Walking associated with reduced risk of dementia in older men

Use your brain, halve your risk of dementia

Keeping fit may stave off Alzheimer's

Obesity, diet, inactivity linked to dementia risk
