Do we control Preventing Alzheimer's?
So you got bad genes your screwed in the fight against Alzheimer's, right? Well as it turns out, no. Though genetics are extremely important the deep dive research done by Dr. David A. Bennett of the Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center in Chicago found that factors you can control may be just as important.   The Center has autopsied 1,350 brains of older Americans. Viewing the damage in the brain is the only way to prove someone had Alzheimer's. However researchers had also followed these same individuals for years prior to their deaths testing cognitive ability and general functioning multiple times over the years. The research has revealed some shocking and very useful information.
The question they have been analyzing is:
Why do some people with the exact same amount of brain damage from Alzheimer's show little effects while others are completely debilitated?
Not only did they study people's cognition and overall functioning they looked at social activity, nutrition, and more esoteric variables like connection to a clear purpose in life. The research results are dramatic and points to the fact that we have way more control over Alzheimer's than ever thought. The difference between those who have significant effect vs. little effects is what they term cognitive reserve.
Because of the WAY they lived their brains built cognitive reserve that staved off Alzheimer's. You are stuck with your genetic make up but you can prepare and build in behaviors that drastically reduce the onset symptoms and severity of the disease by how you live. Personally, I don't care how my brain looks if I can still function!
Here's the short list the research says can keep you going strong even with significant Alzheimer's damage.
PURPOSE IN LIFE: Those who scored higher on the purpose in life assessment were 2.4 times more likely to avoid an Alzheimer's diagnosis.
STAY OUT THERE: People skills and size of your social network and physically getting outside your home directly effects onset and rate of development of symptoms. Those who were restricted to their homes are twice as likely to develop Alzheimer's symptoms.
BRAIN RESERVES: The more education you have, the more languages you know, as well as having taken music lessons give you reserves in your tank to stave off Alzheimer's.
MOVE: Any physical movement from playing cards to cooking dinner helps. And of course more rigorous workouts make a difference.
DIET: Mom was right , eat your vegetables... and fruits and fish.
The punch line is these controllable variables can make decades of difference in functioning not weeks or months!!
I sincerely hope teaching purpose and people skills doubles the positive effect of keeping Alzheimer's at bay.
