Strategies for Preventing or Postponing Alzheimer's Disease


“By managing heart disease risk factors like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and weight, a man may reduce his chances of developing Alzheimer’s,” says William J. Higgins, MD, MBA, Vice President, Medical Affairs and President, New York Presbyterian Medical Group/Hudson Valley. “A low-fat diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables can you keep the brain healthy. The omega-3 fatty acids found in nuts, olive oil, and avocados are correlated with arterial health. Finally, maintaining an active social life and performing mentally challenging activities may also delay or prevent memory loss.”
