We read with interest the article by Yaffe et al1 recently published in the ARCHIVES demonstrating that women with higher levels of physical activity are less likely to develop cognitive decline 6 to 8 years later.

We would like to support these results by presenting data regarding the changes of cognitive status in a population of old citizens (aged 70-75 years) living in the city center of Brescia, Northern Italy, who were longitudinally followed up for 12 years.
