Articles about preventing dementia are numerous. The most recent one I read was in the Montreal Gazette on August 28, under the headline “Moderate drinking in elderly can ward off dementia: study.” Whether it is drinking pomegranate juice, doing crossword puzzles, or exercising regularly, studies suggest many ways we can ward off Alzheimer’s (AD). As with many diseases, prevention involves exercising body and mind, proper diet, and avoiding excessive alcohol and coffee.
