It seems like just about every third person has Alzheimer’s these days, or at least has a parent that has been diagnosed. Makes it seem pretty dismal for the future.
Research into medications to help curb the progression is on every research budget. But every shining star in the research has fallen flat and many researchers are getting frustrated.
The reality is that the incidence of neurodegenerative disorders is increasing rapidly and this rapid increase is NOT due to genetics. As a human species, our DNA has not changed appreciably in several hundred thousand years, leaving lifestyle as the likely answer. And sure enough, unlike the research on treatment, the research supporting prevention continues to grow to the point that it is solidly accepted that this disease state can be prevented.
This particular review gives a short, simple list of some of the lifestyle factors that could be managed to greatly lower your risk. Combine this with an anti-diabetic lifestyle and exercise, and you’re doing boatloads to protect your brain into the future.
