Health Headlines: A Ten Minute Walk May Be Good for the Brain, Women’s Brain Health and Dying of a Broken Heart

On Twin Cities Live at Four, we go straight to the doctors at Fairview Health Services and North Memorial to dig into the latest Health Headlines. In today’s edition, Elizabeth talks with Dr. Jonathan Snitzer from Fairview about new research showing that even mild exercise can make a big difference in the health of our brains. The brain health theme continues when they discuss the estrogen levels in women as they age and how they may contribute to Alheimer’s Disease. And, we all know the saying that someone “died of a broken heart.” New research is showing that people living with grief can be sufferings from higher inflammation levels in their bodies.
