I read the advice piece www.gransnet.com/health/how-to-prevent-dementia-through-diet-and-exercise late last night and have been seething ever since. Biggest load of pseudo science I have seen in a long time.
My Aunt, my FIL and now my DH all developed dementia. None of them were/are obese, drinkers or smokers; all of them ate good, home cooked food and were active mentally, socially and physically until the disease overtook them. Certainly my Aunt and DH had/have high blood pressure but this was/is controlled by medication.
I do not believe it is possible to PREVENT dementia - I believe it is a 'fickle finger of fate' kind of thing. To suggest, as this article does, that sufferers bring dementia upon themselves by having unhealthy life styles is really unhelpful and for me infuriating.
More limericks with very strict rules and I'm standing by with a metre stick ;)
