Beskrivelse

For years, the news about Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related illness has been unrelentingly grim. We don’t know many of the causes. We don’t have a cure. Researchers warned that the number of people with brain-robbing diseases would double in the next three decades as the baby boom generation aged. If you lived long enough, you’d likely suffer from it. Finally, however, good news: Dementia rates in England and Wales plunged by 25 percent over the past two decades, according to a recent study in The Lancet. Another recent study, from Denmark, found that people in their 90s now are mentally sharper than those who reached that age a decade ago. Researchers suspect, but can’t say for certain, that such trends are also afoot in the United States. Tentative conclusion: That slide into dementia and Alzheimer’s with age may not be inevitable. New theory: Eating right, exercising and cutting out smoking is not only good for your heart and lungs . . . it may also help forestall dementia.
