How to Prevent Dementia
There is no known way to prevent dementia. In general:
- Eat a healthy diet. This will help you to maintain good levels of vitamin B12 and cholesterol.
- Exercise regularly. This can also enhance cardiovascular health, which may delay the onset of vascular dementia.
- Drink alcohol only in moderation. This means no more than two drinks per day for a man, and one drink per day for a woman. Moderate amounts of alcohol may decrease your risk of dementia. But higher amounts of alcohol can increase your risk of dementia.
- Avoid Drug Abuse and Drug Addiction. Also, practice safe sex. This can reduce the risk of HIV and AIDS -related dementia.
- Engage in mentally stimulating activity. This may also reduce the risk of Alzheimer's Disease.
