Can We Prevent Alzheimer's?
It's a question that continues to intrigue researchers and fuel new investigations. There are no clear-cut answers yet partially due to the need for more large-scale studies in diverse populations, but promising research is under way. The Alzheimer's Association is leading the worldwide effort to find a treatment for Alzheimer's, delay its onset and prevent it from developing.
Alzheimer’s Prevention Research On Center Stage
New research shows there are things we can do to reduce the risk of mild cognitive impairment and dementia, including improving cardiovascular health and reducing high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. Better overall health can help reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's. We know that 80 percent of individuals with Alzheimer's disease also have cardiovascular disease, so diet and exercise are an important way to help prevent the disease.
What we can do now to prevent Alzheimer’s?
Lifestyle choices, such as physical activity and diet, will help support brain health and prevent Alzheimer's. Many of these lifestyle changes have been shown to lower the risk of other diseases, like heart disease and diabetes, which have been linked to Alzheimer's. With few drawbacks and plenty of known benefits, healthy lifestyle choices can improve your health and possibly protect your brain.
