Did you know that we continue to create new brain cells well into our 70's, providing that we are living a healthy lifestyle? Unfortunately, many lifestyle factors actually accelerate your brain's decline and increase the chances of developing brain diseases like Dementia. It is incredibly important to keep blood flowing to the brain, and essentially anything that is bad for the heart is also bad for your brain. This includes obesity, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, low-quality sleep, not exercising regularly, and increased stress levels. Making better lifestyle decisions is definitely a key factor in maintaining your brain health. In the podcast below, Steven Howard shares his insights into how lifestyle choices are impacting the increase in Alzheimer's and Dementia.
