Can Simple Lifestyle Changes Prevent Dementia?

August 14, 2017 5:11 pm

A new report suggest over a third of dementia diagnoses could potentially be avoided by addressing aspects of one’s lifestyle including exercise, education, blood pressure and hearing. There were around 45 million people living with dementia in 2015, with recent figures showing this is set to rise; in England and Wales alone it is estimated that there will be a 57% increase in people living with dementia by 2040, with numbers set to hit 1.2million, driven predominantly by people living longer. But the new report from the Lancet Commission on dementia prevention, intervention and care, stressed that dementia is not an inevitable part of ageing – and that action can be taken to decrease risk. “There are a lot of...

Can eating oranges cut the risk of developing dementia?

July 18, 2017 3:20 pm

A major study, undertaken by a team of scientists at Tohuku University in Japan, indicates a daily intake of any citrus fruits such as oranges, grapefruits, lemons or limes can cut the risk of developing dementia by almost a quarter. Various studies have suggested that citrus fruits can protect the brain against the damage that leads to dementia. Citric acid contains the chemical nobiletin which, in animal tests, has been shown to slow or reverse impairment of memory. However this new research – published in the British Journal of Nutrition – is the first major study to investigate the effect citrus fruit consumption might have on large numbers of those most at risk. Scientists tracked more than 13,000 middle-aged or...
