  • Ways To Reduce Your Risk Of Dementia, According To A New Report

The organisation disclosed this in a statement announcing new guidelines to tackle the ailment, on its website on Tuesday.

Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the World Health Organization director general, said: "The scientific evidence gathered for these guidelines confirm what we have suspected, that what is good for our heart is also good for our brain".

The scientific evidence gathered to draw up the guidelines, Tedros said, "confirm what we have suspected for some time, that what is good for our heart, is also good for our brain".

People should eat more fruit, vegetables, fish and nuts and walk for about 25 minutes a day to reduce their risk of dementia, the first global guidance of its kind has concluded.

Other preventive measures outlined are controlling their weight, eating a healthy diet, and maintaining healthy blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

It now affects about 50 million people globally with 10 million new cases every year.

Dementia is now incurable, but studies show a variety of things can affect the odds of developing it. Alzheimer's Disease causes issues with memory, thinking, language and behavior and usually worsens with time.

"While some people are unlucky and inherit a combination of genes that makes it highly likely they will develop dementia, many people have the opportunity to substantially reduce their risk by living a healthy lifestyle", Tara Spires-Jones, a professor at the University of Edinburgh and program leader at the UK Dementia Research Institute, told the Science Media Center Tuesday.

"There are almost 10 million new cases every year, inflicting a heavy economic burden on societies as a whole".

Fifty million people worldwide have dementia, and Alzheimer's disease is the most common type.

It added that the number is projected to almost double every 20 years, increasing to 3.48 million by 2030 and 7.62 million by 2050.

The costs of caring for people with dementia is expected to rise to $2 trillion (roughly €1.8 trillion) per year by 2030.

If you want to save your brain, focus on keeping the rest of your body well with exercise and healthy habits rather than popping vitamin pills, new guidelines for preventing dementia advise.

The guidelines are designed for use by healthcare providers and also for governments, policy-makers and planning authorities.
