Why do I need to exercise my brain and body?

Research shows that regular physical activity and exercise throughout life can reduce the risk of memory problems and dementia later in life. We know that exercise improves your heart health, but recent research shows that exercise can improve your brain health too.

By supporting physical activity and stimulating your brain while walking, HealtheBrain will improve your memory and your brain health!

In November 2013, the G8 Health summit recognized dementia as a global health concern. Statistics Canada predict that the number of Canadians over the age of 65 will be 10.4 million by the year 2036 – that is double the number from 2011 (Employment and Social Development Canada, 2014). The number of Canadians with cognitive impairment in 2011 was 747 000 and this number is expected to rise to 1.4 million by 2031 (Alzheimer Society Canada, 2012). Estimated costs of dementia are currently $33 billion. If no attempts are made to prevent and improve treatments, the cost is predicted to reach a staggering $293 billion by 2040 (Alzheimer Society Canada, 2012).
