Every three seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and, according to WHO forecasts, by 2050, 130 million people will be sick. There is still no cure for this disease. But, judging by the latest reports of scientists, the risk of ill dementia can be reduced three times, adhering to certain recommendations. And they are absolutely banal – the usual healthy lifespan, writes the BBC.
A healthy lifestyle will help to avoid dementia.
What to do in order not to get dementia?
Stop smoking; Exercise at a moderate pace of 2.5 hours per week (not necessarily at one time); Eat at least three servings of fruits or vegetables a day, at least two fish dishes a week, and meat semi-finished products to use, on the contrary, as little as possible; Do not drink more than half a liter of beer per day.
However, the advantage is that following these simple rules reduces the likelihood of having dementia, even among people with a genetic predisposition to it.
