MONDAY, July 15 (HealthDay News) As Americans increasingly delay retirement, a new French study indicates this scenario may have a silver lining: a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers analyzing health and insurance records of more than 429,000 self-employed workers found a 3 percent reduction in dementia risk for each extra year at the age of retirement. Working beyond normal retirement age might help stave off dementia, scientists said today. Keeping the brain active later in life appears to.
In fact, volunteering, learning a new language or learning a new skill could also help stave off dementia during your later years. It is important to note that simply retiring doesn’t lead to dementia. LONDON — Working a few years beyond retirement could help stave off Alzheimer’s disease, according to a new British study published Monday. Dementia risk reduced by putting off retirement, study suggests July 15, 2013 / 2:10 PM / CBS/AP BOSTON A new study of nearly half a million French.
As the director of UCLA’s Longevity Center, Small has spent the past two decades researching the ways lifestyle choices affect memory; in his new book, The Alzheimer’s Prevention Program, he argues that it is indeed possible to stave off this form of dementia. Although it could be decades before we have conclusive proof from large-scale studies. To be clear: This isn’t just about putting off sore joints or wrinkles. Slowing the aging process could help us stave off serious conditions such as heart disease, cancer, or Alzheimer’s disease. Specifically, some 5.2 million Americans suffer from the disease, with nearly 94,000 dying of it in 2014.
That number is only expected to rise as the elderly population grows. That’s why it’s more important than ever to do what you can to keep Alzheimer’s at bay. Here are five lifestyle tweaks that could help you ward off dementia.
Improve your lifestyle for Alzheimer’s prevention. Healthy habits may help ward off Alzheimer’s. Consider the following steps to help prevent Alzheimer’s. Exercise. “The most convincing evidence is that physical exercise helps prevent the development of Alzheimer’s or slow the progression in people who have symptoms,” says Dr.
