Simple Ways You Can Prevent Alzheimer's

Sep 16, 2008
While man has made much progress in the field of medicine, unfortunately there is no cure or effective treatment when one develops Alzheimer's disease. For this reason, preventing this disease with the right plan is essential. While medical research is currently being conducted into the causes and treatment of this illness, progress will take some time.

Proper diet, as well as mental exercise can help in the prevention of this disease. As well, making sure that one is not exposed to heavy metals can aid in this process.

The brain needs to be used on a daily basis, and not keeping one's mind sharp can lead to a loss of mental function as an individual ages. A number of medical studies have shown that the elderly who keep their mind sharp showed improved quality of life and reduced risk of death from all causes, including Alzheimer's disease.

The average person has long suspected that aluminum and mercury could cause the onset of Alzheimer's disease, and this myth has persisted for some time. Many studies in the past two decades have put this theory to rest and have found that the two metals are not a causative factor in the development of the disease, as they as one is not exposed to them in large quantities

What isn't a myth is that working in a laboratory around dangerous solvents unprotected can cause brain damage and result in an early onset of Alzheimer's disease. Due to the safe working environments of laboratories, this is highly unusual nowadays.

A diet plan which can prevent the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease is the Mediterranean diet, shown in numerous studies to prevent the risk of the illness altogether. Such a diet is rich is oils, vegetables, fruits, and red wine. As well, the program is rich in B and C vitamins.

A few studies have not shown this diet to be particularly effective, but a balanced diet tailored to the individual is critical to healthy living, especially as one advances in age.

With so many different ways to prevent the onset of Alzheimer's disease, it is important that one take the correct steps to avoid this illness. While Alzheimer's is not fully understood, activities such as mental exercise, proper diet, and avoidance of heavy metal exposure can certainly help any individual, regardless of age or condition.
