4 Your Health: Exercise helps with menopause

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- There is new evidence that working out delivers many benefits for women after menopause.

A new study tracked a group of sedentary, middle aged women, after they completed a 20 week exercise program.

The women said exercise made them feel better mentally and physically with fewer hot flashes and a more positive mood.

They were also more likely to maintain a healthy weight, than less active women.

And long-time soccer players may be at risk of developing a type of dementia caused by repeated blows to the head.

British researchers examined the brains of six former soccer players who had been diagnosed with dementia before they died. Four of the six players had evidence of CTE, a degenerative disease that has been known to affect boxers and football players.

Experts said,  it's important to note that this study was small and it's still not clear how common dementia is among soccer players.
