Some other things the Alzheimer's Association suggests for healthy aging:
—Stay active. Many studies show exercise reduces dementia risk.
—Stay connected — join a club, travel, volunteer. Social ties boost brain health.
—Eat right. High cholesterol may contribute to stroke and brain cell damage, while dark vegetables and fruits may help protect brain cells.
—Do mentally challenging activities such as word puzzles and other things that stimulate thinking skills.
