The causes of dementia are many and complex, but several studies suggest that lifestyle factors playing a role in the development of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis, also affect brain health. Lifebrain researchers in their earlier studies have observed that dietary fatty acids, cholesterol, vitamin D, body weight, and physical activity may be important for cortical preservation during normal aging. This means that the neurons (“thinking cells”) are better conserved in certain areas of the brain depending on diet, body weight and physical activity.
The Lancet Commission on dementia aims to review the best available evidence and produce recommendations on how to best manage, or even prevent, the dementia epidemic. Lancet, as one of the worlds most prestigous medical journals has released its report with a title "Dementia prevention, intervention and care" in July, 2017.
Lifebrain researchers will now comment on the figures of the Lancet Commissions and summarise its most important findings, in a series of 6 short articles.
