Pretty scary stuff, huh?
Dr. Kenneth Kosik, executive director of the Center for Cognitive Fitness and Innovative Therapies and co-director of the Neuroscience Research Institute at University of California at Santa Barbara, says that people can defy the statistics, "the way to prevent or delay Alzheimer's is squarely in the hands of the people at risk for it." Those people need to be proactive towards their mental fitness:
1. Hypertension and high cholesterol are major contributors. Combat thise with exercise and a daily menu filled with vegetables and antioxidant foods.
2. Keep your stress low and your mental activity high.
3. Keep up your social interactions even when friends and family pass on.
