There are more than 6 million people living with Alzheimer’s in the United States. While nearly every chronic disease you can think of—cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke, HIV—is in decline, deaths due to Alzheimer’s have increased nearly 87 percent in the last decade.
While there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, dedicated physicians and researchers like Dean and Ayesha Sherzai, MD, are working tirelessly to learn more about what causes the disease and how we can prevent it. The Sherzais, who co-direct the Brain Health and Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Loma Linda University Medical Center, are authors of the new book, The Alzheimer’s Solution, in which they present their groundbreaking program which has been proven to prevent 90% of Alzheimer’s cases within a normal lifespan.
The key? Lifestyle. The brain is a living universe, directly affected by nutrition, exercise, stress, sleep, and engagement; in other words, what you feed it, how you treat it, when you challenge it, and the ways you allow it to rest. The infographic below highlights how what you eat can affect how your brain operates.
