IN PROUD PAKISTAN - I avail myself of the greatest of honors and address the O''Captain Imran Khan - the Prime Minister of Pakistan.

Sir, Esteemed Your Excellency : ''You ought to be exercising more. The pressures of high office are exhilarating but costly. A few public displays of your work-out techniques would get the nation  brimming and following''

You owe this to the nation, Sir. You owe this to the World. ''

Everywhere I go, every nook and corner I visit, I preach exercising. ''A healthy body will get you a healthy brain. Get off your backs. A healthy nation always wins cascading great emotions of love, happiness and total serenity.''

A HORMONE THAT is released during exercise may improve brain health and reduce the damage and memory loss that occur during dementia, a new study finds.

The study, which was published this month in Nature Medicine, involved mice, but its findings could help to explain how, at a molecular level, exercise protects our brains and possibly preserves memory and thinking skills, even in people whose pasts are fading.

Considerable scientific evidence already demonstrates that exercise remodels brains and affects thinking.

Researchers have shown in rats and mice that running ramps up the creation of new brain cells in the hippocampus, a portion of the brain devoted to memory formation and storage.

Exercise also can improve the health and function of the synapses between neurons there, allowing brain cells to communicate better.

In people, epidemiological research indicates that being physically active reduces the risk for Alzheimer's disease and other dementia's and may also slow disease progression.

But many questions remain about just how exercise alters the inner workings of the brain and whether the effects are a result of changes elsewhere in the body that also happen to be good for the brain or whether the changes actually occur within the brain itself.

Those issues attracted the attention of an international consortium of scientists - some of them neuroscientists, others cell biologists - all of whom were focused on preventing, treating and understanding of Alzheimer's  disease.

Those concerns had brought a hormone called Irisin into their sphere of interest. Irisin, first identified in 2012 and named for Iris, the God's messenger in Greek mythology, is produced by muscles during exercise.

The hormone jump-starts multiple biochemical reactions throughout the body, most of them related to energy metabolism. Because Alzheimer's disease is believed to involve, in part, changes in how brain cells use energy, the scientists reasoned that exercise might be helping to prevent brains by increasing levels of irisin there.

But if so, they realized, irisin would have to exist in human brains. To see if it did, they gathered tissues from brain banks and, using sophisticated testing found irisin there.

The Honor and Serving of the latest Global Operational Research on Exercising and Health, continues. The World students Society thanks author and researcher Gretechen Reynolds.

With respectful dedication to Leaders, Students, Professors and Teachers of the world. See Ya all  prepare for Great Global Elections and ''register'' on : wssciw.blogspot.com and Twitter- E-!WOW!  -the Ecosystem 2011.
