Summary
Within twenty years, dementia is set to overtake heart disease as the number one cause of death in Australia. Recent studies show that almost half our adult population already have a family member or friend with the illness. Those statistics seem rather grim, but there is GOOD NEWS! We don?t need to accept dementia as an inevitable part of ageing. The main forms of dementia affecting people today are not inherited, and there are practical steps you can take right now that will not only help prevent dementia but also improve the overall health of your mind and body. In MAINTAIN YOUR BRAIN, leading Australian expert Dr Michael Valenzuela addresses all the common (and not-so-common) questions people have about dementia, and explains complex cutting-edge medical discoveries in a way that is clear and easy to understand. His practical advice is based on years of first-hand research and experience, and covers everything from blood pressure, diet and cholesterol to mental activity and physical exercise. .
