In fact, 1 out of 8 people aged 65+ and 3 out of 7 people aged 85+ develop dementia. Scientists now know that while signs of dementia do not typically emerge until we are older, the seeds of the disease are planted years earlier with damage beginning years before symptoms.
Scientists also know that diabetes, depression, and heart disease all contribute to the development and progression of dementia. That's why the Best CURE for dementia is Prevention. As Dr. Charlap likes to say, "Protect your heart, protect your head."
