- •More current and earlier-life LTPA were associated with reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD).
- •Increasing or maintaining high LTPA throughout life was protective against AD.
- •Avoiding being physically inactive throughout life was beneficial for prevention of AD.
- •There was a health benefit in AD prevention by performing light and moderate LTPAs.
