Every 60 Seconds Someone is Diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease

Dharma S Khalsa, MD Health Guide
  • According to the latest research, every 60 seconds someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, this statistic is up from last year when it was every 70 seconds. The number of people in America who will lose their memory is sky-rocketing.

    It could be because of aging, stress, life style issues, genetics, or some unknown reason but it is definitely happening. The best way to make strides against Alzheimer's is to not only maintain your brain as you age, but actually make it better by creating a lifetime of peak mental performance.

    An aging brain does not have to be the norm. You can make your brain, mind, and memory younger as you age and not allow yourself to lose it all.

    According to my investigations, if we can delay the onset of memory loss by only 5 years, we can virtually drop the rate by 50%. More impressively, if we can delay the rate of memory loss by 10 years, which is possible, then we will never suffer from loss of mental function as we age.

     

    How you live your life today will go a long way towards determining the state of your mind and memory tomorrow.  You can protect and repair your brain with your lifestyle choices. You need to find a solution that first recognizes and then reduces the factors that put you at risk.  The answer?
