Are You at Risk for Alzheimer’s?
We are all at risk for developing brain disease. In fact, if you live to the age of 85, your risk of developing dementia is roughly 50/50. That’s the flip of a coin. Currently, more than 5.8 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia. And it’s absolutely critical to understand that this is a disease for which we have no meaningful treatment.
But here’s the great news: although you may think that whether or not you develop Alzheimer’s is completely out of your hands, that is a misconception. The foods you eat, the amount of sleep you get, and the way you live your life determine whether you are laying a foundation for a future of health, or setting yourself up for a life of disease.
Your risk for Alzheimer’s disease is influenced by the choices you make each and every day. This is incredibly empowering, because it means you can start making changes today to pave the way for a long, healthy, fulfilling life.
