    These are the 12 ways you can drastically cut your dementia risk

    These are the 12 ways you can drastically cut your dementia risk

    This is an important article for all Americans especially those who have elderly family members who suffered from dementia. As expected, lifestyle changes to include exercise are the bulk of the list.

    Almost half of all dementia cases could potentially be prevented or delayed by adopting 12 health measures, a major review has found.
    The review identified the biggest known risk factors for dementia as smoking, excess alcohol consumption, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, head injury, depression, hearing loss and exposure to air pollution, as well as lack of exercise, education and social contact.


    Minimising these 12 risks could potentially prevent or delay up to 40 per cent of dementia cases globally, according to the review of the latest evidence by 28 leading dementia experts from around the world.



    “People who have family members with dementia often ask me, ‘Is there anything I can do to prevent myself from getting it?’,” says David Ames at the University of Melbourne in Australia, who was one of the authors of the review. “There are certainly some things you can do that might make a difference.”

    Biden should have read this

    I also read lonliness and a stagnant mind can speed the onset of dementia...its a horrible disease and even worse for caregivers to have to deal with
    ALL LIVES MATTER..my life your life, our childrens lives, all childrens lives. To try and make it only SOME lives matter, divides us and fosters hatred and violence.

    Yes loneliness. I think the social contact at the end of the list in the OP covers that.

    "Delay" is nebulous and not defined, so you have to accept the article as too vague to actually heed, or whatever.

    Status quo probably works fine for many.
