We’ll keep watching the results of studies and hoping that researchers can put together the puzzle pieces soon so that a sure method to prevent or cure Alzheimer’s disease can become reality. Meanwhile, we do know that exercise and diet can help people live a healthier life and may help prevent AD, whether due to fending off diseases involving chronic inflammation or due to other known or unknown factors linking healthy living benefits to better brain health.
So why not do what we can? Let's take care of our bodies while we watch and wait. Psychologically, taking some kind of action generally helps most of us. Physically, we're likely to feel better in general. And if we stave off Alzheimer's – how wonderful is that?
