Alzheimer's disease and dementia—which can begin in our 30s—are on the increase, and may soon overwhelm the US health-care system. Yet individuals can do much to educate themselves and learn how to minimize their risks. A prudent diet, lifestyle modifications, nutritional supplements, exercise and activities to stimulate the brain are some of the best ways to prevent or delay Alzheimer’s disease. Use your brain or lose it! That's all easy to say, but how scientific are these admonitions and how do we change our habits, anyway? Vitamins, minerals and food supplements are discussed in relation to memory and other functions, as well as an overview of medications, the effects of wine, and the dangers of smoking. The Appendices present helpful data to assist in decision-making regarding nursing homes, statistics for Alzheimer’s state by state, and a list of support organizations worldwide. The present work is more comprehensive, better organized, and more reader friendly than 100 Simple Things You Can Do to Prevent Alzheimer's.About the Author:
