Preventing Alzheimer’s Disease

My grandmother beat breast cancer twice. And then she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Even though I don’t live my life wondering if I will end up with Alzheimers, I do try to find ways to keep my brain sharp. Watch this TED Talk, which addresses this very subject.

  1. I’ve read that it’s really important to read lots of fruits and vegetables to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Antioxidants, including vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene, and selenium, can counteract the damaging effects of free radicals in the brain and throughout the body as well as help lower your cholesterol levels. These powerful natural chemicals are found in vegetables, fruits, grains, and beans. Plants are loaded with antioxidants that have been shown to counter the brain-damaging effects of free radicals.
    Studies have shown that it is possible to prevent and even reverse the buildup of deadly arterial plaques and reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease by lowering one’s cholesterol. In fact, Alzheimer’s disease rates have been shown to be 70 percent lower in people who eat a diet rich in whole grains and low in animal fats compared to people who follow a traditional American diet.
