Healthy Heart When Young = Healthy Brain When Older-Video

Healthy Heart in 20s = Healthy Brain in 40s

People who take simple steps to keep a healthy heart in young adulthood, such as exercising, eating a healthy diet and controlling blood pressure and cholesterol, may keep their brain from shrinking decades later. People who take care of their heart health in young adulthood may have larger brains in middle-age, compared to people who do not take care of their heart health, according to a study published in Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
