BEAT Alzheimer’s with THESE 4 Brain-Boosting Habits
Alzheimer’s disease is one of the fast-growing conditions in the US.
More than 5 million people have been diagnosed, and it’s expected to balloon to 14 million in the next 40 years.
There’s no cure for this brain-robbing disease—but scientists have identified some key strategies for making sure you never have to worry about becoming one.
And chances are you’re already doing some of them this Fourth of July weekend.
One hundred years ago, the top causes of death were infectious diseases like tuberculosis and diphtheria.
Death from diseases like these have been all but eliminated—but something else has taken their place.
Today, the top killers are conditions like heart disease, cancer, stroke, and Alzheimer’s—and as different as they may seem, they all have one thing in common.
They’re all diseases that are largely influenced by lifestyle.
A recent study published in the journal Neurology has found the best combination of lifestyle factors for lowering your risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Specifically, the researchers looked at the impact of five lifestyle habits:
- High-quality diet (like the Mediterranean diet)
- Physical activity (150 minutes per week)
- Light alcohol consumption
- Not smoking
- Engaging in cognitive activities (like reading or learning a new skill)
People who regularly engaged in four out of five of these lifestyle habits had a 60 percent lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s, compared to those who only did one or less.
Even doing a combination of two or three of these habits lowered Alzheimer’s risk by 37 percent.
You don’t have to be perfect—but studies like this one make it clear that the better lifestyle choices you make, the better your chances of preventing Alzheimer’s.
In fact, even people who have a higher genetic risk of Alzheimer’s disease can reduce their risk by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
There are consequences to living a lifestyle contrary to nature.
And the consequence of spending all day indoors, eating processed junk food, surrounded by electromagnetic fields, breathing in polluted air, and sitting on the couch all day is disease and death.
So, take some time this weekend to cook a healthy meal, drink a glass of red wine, and go for a long outdoor walk.
