UHN e-News: Habits to Fight Alzheimer’s

The following comes from the UHN Foundation’s e-news stories:

Alzheimer’s disease is the fastest growing disease in Canada. Making up 60 to 80 per cent of all dementia cases, it not only affects thousands of Canadians, but millions of people worldwide. Our aging population means these numbers are climbing, affecting all aspects of a person’s life and the lives of those around them.

Researchers are hard at work studying many approaches to prevent or delay Alzheimer’s, many of which can be adopted into our daily lives. These are changes that not only reap rewards for your brain health, but your physical well-being overall.

Recognizing that January is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, practical lifestyle advice aimed at Alzheimer’s prevention is outlined in the following topics:

  • Exercise: your choice
  • Workouts for the brain
  • Being social
  • Using the MIND
