“Untangling the Mysteries of the Brain”

Untangling the Mysteries of the Brain,” by Sarah Lai Stirland, Senior Living Executive

“A growing body of research suggests that reducing risks of developing dementia—or at least slowing its progression—can be accomplished through diet and exercise. Some researchers say specific diets and exercise regimes can to a limited extent restore brain health. Human biology and the brain are complex systems that interact with their environments, though. No scientifically rigorous studies have definitively proved that dementia is 100 percent preventable.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):  Excellent, very long article summarizing latest research and limited conclusions about dementia.
