Swimming Can Make Children Smarter

Queensland, children are advised to master swimming as beneficial for health. Not only that, swimming can make children smarter. Recent studies have shown that learning to swim can make children more intelligent. A study at Griffith University conducted by surveying more than 10,000 children aged five-year average at swim class.

A cooperation project between Griffith University, Kids Alive Swim Program and Swim Australia aims to determine whether routine swim contribute to their physical, social, cognitive and language in pre-school learners.

"Anecdotal evidence found that swimmers or children who can swim tends to be more confident with the physical development that is greater than his age peers who can not swim," explained Professor Robyn Jorgensen, Griffith Institute for Educational Research, Queensland, as reported by News.com . au, Thursday (11/04/2010).

According to Prof. Jorgensen, preliminary data from this study are quite positive. Children who learn or take a swim class seems superior in development, whether physical, social, cognitive and language.

"Drowning is the leading cause of death in the under 5 year age group, both in the pool, shower or other water sources. So we wanted to raise awareness about the importance of learning to swim from an early age," said Prof. Jorgensen.

Professor Jorgensen said that the research is the first detailed study that determines how much profit from the developments that occur in children who learn to swim.

"Our study will monitor the 10,000 students across Australia every year for four years," explained Prof. Jorgensen.

This study will identify key factors in swim programs that enhance development, such as the number of lessons per week, the child's age when he began lessons and access to the pool house.

The study was conducted involving 299 people free of dementia (senility). Researchers noted how many blocks which the participants pass by every morning in the week, as quoted by Science Daily.

After nine years, the researchers conducted brain scans of participants to measure their brain volume. The study found that people who walk at least 72 blocks per week, or around 9.7 up to 14.5 km per week had a larger brain volume than those who do not, according to the first record.

Four years later, participants in the test to see if they are experiencing cognitive impairment or dementia. Apparently there are 116 participants who experienced it. And the researchers concluded that people who diligently walked reduce by half the risk of dementia.

"If regular exercise in middle age can increase the health of the brain and improve concentration and memory in the future, it will be an additional reason to perform regular exercise," said Kirk I. Erickson, PhD, author of the study by the University of the United States.
