How to Delay the Onset Of Alzheimer's
Judith L London, PhD posted:
Hi Everyone,

In response to those of you who have written and others, here are some tips that have been associated with reducing the risk of Alzheimer's:

  • Aerobic Exercise. This is by far the most important thing you can do. Even walking 30 minutes/day, 5days/week has been correlated with an increase in brain volume and improvement in memory.
  • "If it's good for your heart, it's good for your brain." Low fat, high grain, high fiber diets with lots of fruit, vegetables and fatty fish such as salmon is associated with lowering risk.
  • Learn something new. It stimulates all the new brain cells that are born every day of your life.
  • Socialize. Friends are good for your health.
  • Get involved in activities such as reading, playing bridge, going to classes, etc. Eleven activities a week has been associated with a one and two-thirds delay of onset. Even fewer numbers of activities may delay onset somewhat.
So, get involved and start your program for brain health.
