Is Alzheimer’s Dangerous?
.. I work in an office and work in front of a laptop continuously. and he said that if I sit continuously it will disturb the flow of blood to the brain. Is that true? because I read it at https://akurat.co/gayahidup/id-287711-read-jika-tak-mau-kena-alzheimer-rsquo-s-berdirilah and written to avoid Alzheimer’s disease, you must stand for a while not too long on the bench . Is it supposed to be like that huh?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Alzheimer's disease is a disease of memory impairment, the ability to think and speak, which also involves changes in behavior due to brain disorders that develop progressively or worsen slowly. This disease is not life-threatening, but it severely limits a person's social interactions and ability to perform daily tasks. At one point, he became desperate for the help of others to take care of him in any way.
Regarding the article that you read, on the one hand, we still cannot find the research in question to be able to confirm its accuracy. But on the other hand, too much sitting, whether it's because of working, studying or watching television, is associated with a lack of physical activity which can be a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease, along with lack of exercise, frequent exposure to cigarette smoke, high cholesterol, age> 65 years, female sex, history of heart disease, high blood pressure and overweight or obesity.
Therefore, the point is not actually sitting or standing, but physical activity as an effort to keep ourselves healthy and away from risk factors for any disease. We think that the authors of the article also agree that what they want to convey is the recommendation to do more physical activity rather than sitting too long, let alone lying down. That's why he wrote to 'get up often and walk a little bit', not just get up.
Therefore exercise more regularly, be it cycling, swimming, jogging, jumping rope, going to the gym and the like, eating healthy foods with vegetables and fruit, and drinking lots of water. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
