Association between healthy lifestyle and memory decline in older adults: 10-year, population-based, prospective cohort study.

Have you ever wondered if there were things that you could do to slow age-related memory decline? Done together, these healthy lifestyle choices were associated with nearly a 90% reduction in the risk of developing dementia.

A new study in the BMJ found that (not a surprise) eating well, exercising regularly, using your brain, and active social contacts were all linked to a slower cognitive decline. They also found that not smoking mattered. This study reinforced the growing evidence that alcohol is to be avoided too (which may be sad news for those who enjoy a daily glass of wine or two).

Which lifestyle choice slowed cognitive decline the most? Eating a healthy diet.
