I know that right now there’s nothing we can do to absolutely prevent dementia, as things like our age and genes affect our risk of developing the condition.

But as organisations like Alzheimer’s Research UK, and the scientists they fund, continue the search for better treatments, it inspires me to know there are things I can do to reduce my chances and you can too…So please if like me you have a parent, sibling, family member or friend who is afflicted by this dreadful disease then please click the highlighted link below that will take you to Smorgasbord where Sally will advise you on simple steps we can take to help us be one of the 46% who may be able to help themselves avoid succumbing to this dreadful disease…See you there the kettles on …x

Part four – Shopping list for the Brain and its support systems.

The first key element to eating for brain health is to omit industrially processed foods that contain harmful toxins and additives that have zero nutritional benefit and effectively ’empty’ calories. They might supply sugar and trans fats and look appetizing on a plate, but the brain will not recognize them as anything it can process. Processed foods Vs. Industrially manufactured foods

If you eat plenty of fresh vegetables, fruit, some moderate whole grains, nuts and seeds, good quality meats and cold-water fish that have not been farmed, you are doing a great job.

Please if you are like me and are concerned about keeping your brain in tip-top condition as you age then please click the highlighted link below which will take you to Smorgasbord Magazine where Sally tells us about the foods we should be eating…Because my mother has Vascular Dementia I have subscribed to Alzheimer’s Research UK and they have stated that 40% of dementia cases could be due to factors we may be able to influence…That is quite high I think and worth taking action on…See you over at Smorgasbord Magazine x
