Women with a high level of cardiovascular fitness during middle-age had an 88% reduction in risk of developing dementia compared to women who were moderately fit in midlife. When the highly fit women did get dementia, they developed it an average of 11 years later—at 90 instead of 79 years old! This comes from a Swedish cohort of women who were followed up to 44 years.
