Brain health

A new study of factors contributing to lifelong brain health concludes that half of Alzheimer’s cases can be prevented through healthier lifestyle choices. The new study, conducted by researchers at the University of California, counters widespread perceptions that chronic brain impairment with aging is not actionable. The new study involved a meta-analysis of lifestyle and Alzheimer’s diagnosis data covering a global sample set. It concludes that seven specific lifestyle factors combine to account for roughly 50% of the risk of this disease: low educational levels (19%), smoking (14%), physical inactivity (13%), depression (11%), midlife hypertension (5%), midlife obesity (2%), and diabetes (2%).
