While there are many benefits of dancing a recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine had some interesting findings. They found that the ONLY physical activity that provided a significant protection against dementia was dancing frequently.
Isn’t that amazing! While other activities such as reading and doing crossword puzzles also made a difference, Dancing was the only physical activity to show a benefit. Sorry Golfers, cyclers and Swimmers but dancing was the only physical activity to show a 76% reduction in dementia.
